Hello All,
been a lurker here for years, I've signed up only now as I'm re-reading several Realms novel and probably I will have some thoughts/questions to share.
Bought Shadowdale (the book) and the FR Boxed set back in 1991, actively DM'ed the Realms from 1999 to 2006, played a lot of computer games from Eye of the Beholder to Neverwinter Nights 2, own a lot of FR products and novels. I've read less than half the published novels so far, even if I own almost all of them. I've begun re-reading them all a few months ago, probably it will take about 3-5 years (!) to read them all!
Highest Praises to the creators and managers of this wonderful site and forum!

Also a member of The Piazza forum (http://www.thepiazza.org.uk/bb/index.php), with the name of Sturm, as Mystara is my primary gaming world, with the FR a close second.

Hello. I'm new. I just started playing D&D last year (started with 5th edition) but I had some previous experience with it playing Baldur's Gate. I'm a bit ashamed to say I have never completed it.
Well... that's all. I guess I'll lurk for a bit.

Greetings all!

Long time collector of all things FR/AD&D. 2 floods over the past 10 years have decimated some parts of my collection. Was in NYC for an outing recently and had time to pop into the Compleat Strategist. (as I used to do almost daily circa 1982!) Decided I was going to replace all my lost items and began searching for FR lists and bibliographies, found this site and been lurking hard.

Look forward to contributing!

Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains
And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

Hello everyone,

I have been reading from (lurking on) this site for several years now, finally decided to make an account. More than the game itself (which I greatly enjoy), the lore of FR has always fascinated me, and this site has always been the best in terms of offering further understanding or opening up new areas of interest. I am not sure how much I will post, given how busy life has been recently, but I hope to ask a few questions here and there.
First one: if I were to pose a question relating to information from the book "Lords of Darkness", which forum would that belong in?

Hello guys, Its great to join up with what looks to be an awesome fan forum! I have always been a big Forgotten Realms fan since my brothers used to play D&D and teach me all about it as a kid. Just got back into D&D a year ago and have been learning and re-learning a lot about the realms and have ghosted this site for some time! I'm dming a bit now though and am in need of some expert knowledge so I finally joined up! :)

Just signed up. Haven't been paying attention to the Forgotten Realms for a few years and thought I'd sign up to figure out what is going on in the area. Lots of changes I hear, and then more changes (sometimes back to how it was before, but hard to know for sure on everything).

Hello all.

I just decided to finally log in and thank this forum for having more or less every answer to every question about FR I've had since I did the unforgiveable and begun writing a BG/FR Fanfiction. Most notably I want to praise the site for the awesome "Introduction to Candlekeep" piece of lore that Ed Greenwood believed this site worth writing for. It provided some great concepts and world building and allowed me to assign names and personality to some of the people that were only shown briefly in the Baldur's Gate game (some of which, like the Gatewarden, entirely lacked a name).

I don't really expect to post much here, since as far as I can tell most of the questions I have have been asked before. Additionally, I was introduced to D&D around the year 2000 and I wouldn't have had anyone to play with where I lived even if I did get introduced to the idea of board games earlier in my life. As such, I'm only familiar with the FR and other D&D settings through video games (BG 1&2, Planescape, IWD 1&2, NWN 1&2) rather than the board games and have had to rely on Wikis and this site for my other lore, since I haven't actually gone through any of the books either, at least not yet (Save for the Gilded Rune, since I'm strangely fond of dwarves).

I'll lurk around substantially though, I'm sure, since I am big on world building whenever I start to write a story (particularly since I always have the end in mind when I start) means I've had to do quite a bit of Lore research indeed.

TL;DR: Thanks to the community and massive info and multitude of theories for being here.

Hello everyone!

I am happy to have signed up! I play various versions of D&D since back in the '90s and I really like Forgotten Realms. I admit having once or twice played the Other Setting Whose Name We Do Not Speak Of*, but FR is by far my favorite!

I wouldn't consider myself a lore expert, hence I plan on visiting this nice forum every once in a while to get educated. Despite almost always running as a DM, I dare say my knowledge is limited to the North with the odd exception of hastily reading sections on the other parts of the world. Sadly my DM position is mostly due to rules-knowledge and good human-handling, rather than any impressive story-telling ability.

As a result, my contribution to this site will probably be somewhat limited, although I hope in time I will get more up to date with FR news!

So, that's my first post in this forum. Do you have any advice on how I can become more accustomed with all this site has to offer? Where to start, where to go next, what are the hottest topics right now?

Thanks in advance and let me say again that I'm happy to be here!

Hello, I am here now. I am a guy who has spent a nontrivial portion of the last twenty-something years daydreaming about the Realms. I've found answers to a lot of realms questions here over the years so I figured I ought to join up. That's all I've got to say I guess right now. Thanks for everything.

My name is James and I can't stop thinking about dragons. These guys are cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.

Greetings,

I have been reading the fora now and then, always interested in Realms lore.

Now that my players have finally defeated their main antagonists in my latest campaign, I am looking for new hooks to increase their interest and investment in the area they have struggled to cleanse.

Namely, they have defeated the Cult of the Dragon out of Myth Drannor, in an upscaled and much overhauled adventure based in the "Pool of Radiance: Attack on Myth Drannor".

The party consists of a Cormyrean human fighter -lesser noble (of the Hyraken family)-, a moon elf fighter/mage/bladesinger of the Floshin family, a dwarf cleric of Moradin from the Silver Marches with family ties to Myth Drannor, and a dwarf mage/cleric/mystic theurge of Marthammor Duin.

The time is late (winter of) 1370 DR.

So I figured, lets sign up in Candlekeep and listed to the Sages' ideas of how to further involve my players there!

Thank you in advance

Greetings to you all. I've wandered in and out of here for years and I'm impressed that this forum is still going strong. I miss the old days when I was active in communities such as this one, so mayhap I will put this new account to good use. A brief intro: I've been playing D&D since my teens & I'm a longtime fan of BG1 & BG2 (I plan to download BGEE hopefully sometime next month) and NWN (I also have NWN2, but haven't gotten very far in it). I enjoy reading Forgotten Realms novels & learning all about the Realms (which is why I've kept coming back to this place), but I'm also into other fantasy as well, especially the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. That's pretty much it. May Lady Luck always smile upon you.

Words are the bread and beer of the bard's soul.

Greetings,

I have been lurking on this forum for quite some time now, always seeking more Realms lore. Now that I have started DM'ing my own campaign I have plenty of unanswered questions and things I would like to clarify. So here I am ;)
