The Forgotten Realms is a campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) fantasy role-playing game. Commonly referred to by players and game designers alike as "The Realms", it was created by game designer Ed Greenwood around 1967 as a setting for his childhood stories. Several years later, Greenwood brought the setting to the D&D game as a series of magazine articles, and the first Realms game products were released in 1987. Role-playing game products have been produced for the setting ever since, as have various licensed products including sword and sorcery novels, role-playing video game ...more

“ Friendship: the word has come to mean many different things among the various races and cultures of both the Underdark and the surface of the Realms. In Menzoberranzan, friendship is generally born out of mutual profit. While both parties are better off for the union, it remains secure. But loyalty is not a tenet of drow life, and as soon as a friend believes that he will gain more without the other, the union - and likely the other's life - will come to a swift end. I have had few friends in my ...more ”
“ Because of the friends I have known, the honorable people I have met, I know I am no solitary hero of unique causes. I know now that when I die, I will live on. That which is important will live on. This is my Legacy; and by the grace of the gods, I am not alone. ”

Join us as we rebuild our kingdom and enjoy some great novels, and hopefully some enlightening interaction with the authors. May Tymora grace us with her blessing...

[close] This group is for anyone who would like to join me at any point and for any parts of this epic literary journey. There are just shy of 300 books set in the Forgotten Realms and I’m going to be embarking on an epic adventure to read as many of them as I can. I planned this challenge quite a while ago and only got one book in before life got crazy and put a lot of things on a halt. I’m ready and excited to pick this project back up. Rules & Structure: - All books will be checked to be sure they can either be easily found and purchased for less than $20 USD OR available in at least 100 libraries based on WorldCat. (For most of them both criteria fit but I was only requiring one to have it be part of this project). - Most of these are series, so I have a series-specific rule. If I get a quarter of the way thru a series and just am not enjoying it the series will be dropped from the project. - Books will be read in publication order. - For anyone who decided to join me for any of the books, I will be setting up a schedule and since I want this to be low pressure and fun it will be slower reader-friendly! There will also be an “off week” in-between books both to pace me and also in case anyone (including me lol) who may have gotten behind on the chapter goals has some catchup time. - Schedules will be posted in “year blocks” based on their original publication year.
