For more than twenty years, the D&D FORGOTTEN REALMS campaign setting has invited players of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game to walk the streets of Waterdeep, to sail the Sea of Fallen Stars, and traverse the trails of the Far East. Names such as Drizzt Do’Urden and Elminster have become legend to both player characters and players.
The continent of Faerûn is a land of darkness and light—wilderness and civilization. From the subterranean depths of the Underdark to the dazzling heights of Airspur, the people of Faerûn inhabit even the most remote lands and inhospitable environments. The people of Faerûn vary as widely as the continent’s geography, and they pursue virtually every walk of life to survive and prosper.
Adventurers come in all shapes and sizes, and the greatest heroes often arise from the unlikeliest of sources. Motivations differ as much as the color of one’s skin, or the shape of one’s eyes or ears, yet it is those differing motivations that create a hearty adventure. A character’s race and class create a canvas on which you might paint a story. The colors you use to create the masterpiece are the triumphs and tragedies of your character’s past deeds and future hopes. With each ambition, motivation, and background element you introduce to you character, you make the picture clearer and more enduring.
