The Forgotten Realms

The Forgotten Realms is a Dungeons & Dragons setting that focuses primarily on Faerûn, an ancient land of magic and monsters, of peril and wonder.

An arcane cataclysm and the merging of two worlds have ravaged the world, realigned its planes, and left nations in ruins. Wizened emperors and upstart kings scheme and fight to secure a place in the world. Horrifying creatures lurk in and around civilized places. Lost treasures lie in darkness, awaiting rediscovery.

The shadowy wizards of Netheril gather their power in the north. Countless undead muster to the east in the land of Thay. Ancient evil stirs to the south, where monsters rule. Across the sea, to the west, a continent that was once part of another world beckons with elemental glory. The denizens of the planes are restless in the realigned cosmic order. Old dynasties endure, and new ones gaze about with covetous eyes.
