Forgotten Realms Information Resources

Post by Andreas » Fri Nov 14, 2003 3:21 pm

I have so many Forgotten Realms links that I can't even begin to decide which to pick and choose to post here.

However, these two are what I consider to be the most useful:

Wizards of The Coast Official Website
http://www.wizards.com

Forgotten Realms Webring Hub
http://i.webring.com/hub?ring=forgottenrealms&list

I personally have a HUGE collection of source material and I'm always willing to look up information for folks :)

I found this site while trying to find some information on gnomes. It has a ton of information on Waterdeep, may not help a whole lot, but it also has descriptions of other towns and may help with descriptions for new areas. I hope you can use some of it.

I was wondering if anyone could set me up with a few resources about the North in FR. I know that Wizards released something, but my old comp died before I could find it, and now it's lost in the massive files Wizards has compiled.

I can't remember the exact website address, but:

Go onto wizards.com

Go onto the Dungeons and Dragons "section"

Click "Downloads"

There should be a section about old material, or something... and there, it should have a massive downloadable old Second Edition book about the North, covering Silverymoon, NPCs, etc...

There are other interesting downloads there, as well... and not just for FK.

Enjoy!
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.

Awesome FR Info Site

Post by Taerom » Fri Feb 11, 2005 4:20 pm

I went googling when the mud was down once, and I came up with a real winner. I've already told several people I know OOC about this site, but I figured I should gift everyone with it's knowledgey goodness. I was pretty amazed I hadn't found this place sooner.

The page loads for me, but when it does, it is just to give me a "This Account Has Been Suspended" message :?:

For anyone who follows the tech-side of our world, they may have heard of slashdot. In essance, that's exactly what happened to this here http://www.toril.info. Too many people went to access it and all their bandwidth got chewed up. Usually, it'll take until the start of the next day or next month before the bandwidth counter will reset itself.

Here's the weblink... they don't have EVERY 2nd edition Realms supp, but they have some good ones with some good info on more obscure areas of Faerun.

Forgotten Realms Wiki

It's a wiki, so not the most reliable source of information on the planet, but they're working on getting each entry properly referenced to source material.

I have pretty much every handbook for D&D 3.0 and 3.5. I would list them all, but they are too many to have to key in. This includes the supplementals. If anyone has any questions for me, I would be more than happy to look up specific details.

Thanks to a progressing Iraqi provincial authority, I found the time to find this:

It's a catalog of version 3.5 resources for download in PDF.
