''Forgotten Realms'' is a campaign setting for the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' fantasy role-playing game. It was originally created by author and game designer Ed Greenwood as a setting for his own stories, but after he discovered ''D&D'' he adapted it to the game system. Beginning with a one-page write-up on [[EliteMooks the curst]] in ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' #30, he produced dozens of articles that delved into the history, personalities and creatures of the land. When TSR decided to add another official campaign setting to ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'', ''TabletopGame/{{Dragonlance}}'', and ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'', they asked Greenwood if his clearly well-thought out world was available, and he agreed to release it to them (albeit with him maintaining editorial control). With its first release as a boxed set in 1987, "The Realms" became the most popular setting with ''D&D'' players.

--> '''Elminster''': And now, look ye, that rascal, rogue, and jackanapes Ed of the Greenwood's been at it again--passing on precious lore (words I spoke in confidence, mind ye) to folk at TSR, who've promptly published it for all to view. Has he no shame? (''Pages from the Mages'', introduction)

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe - Dorn Graybrook lost much of the left side of his body to the red dragon, and for this reason was turned into half-golem. And took [[TheHunter some issues with dragons]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero - Karsus tried to become a god by using the first 12-level spell to borrow some divine power from the only deity he should have left alone. The result is: destroyed Netheril, killed goddess, no 11-level and higher spells on Toril anymore and 10 level working only when relevant gods are ''sure'' it's a good idea, Karsus being a god just long enough to understand how much he screwed up everything and then [[AndIMustScream trapped for ages]] as almost-dead almost-god.

What's left of him is a red boulder that seeps blood.
** Karsus shows up as a [[FateWorseThanDeath vestige]] in the "Pact Magic" section of the ''Tome of Magic'' book. He refuses to be summoned near active spells, indicating he's at least partially [[AndIMustScream aware of his current situation]].

* CaptainErsatz - Not counting pantheons ripped off straight as well as individual deities (as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mielikki Mielikki]]), and aside of all {{fantasy counterpart culture}}s, "Selûne" = Selene + Luna. (and a [[HeavyMetalUmlaut circumflex]] for [[XtremeKoolLetterz extra flavor]]). The Greeks and the Romans should obviously have no complaints here, being [[AncientGrome ripped off equally]].

* EnemyCivilWar - The Zhents hate the Netherese (Shade), Cyric hates Bane, The Red Wizards hate both (not to mention each other), and the Netherese hate everyone. Cult of the Dragon raids Zhents, who retaliate. Applies to most Underdark denizens as well, especially phaerimm. Who also hate Netherese. And this feeling is reciprocated.

The survivors of Manshoon's violence hate everybody who opposed them, nobody likes the drow, and ''nobody'' likes it when Illithids get cranky.
