* ''The Realm'' - Ray Dyer's massive series of conversions of classic D&D modules (don't let the small, fluffy, long-eared narrator fool you). An introduction module introduces players to the setting and provides an overworld map that directs players to modules they can transfer their characters to (and has nine mini-adventures of its own). The [[http://therealm.flopsyville.com/Menu.htm website]] suggests three preferable orders to play the modules in, all concluding in a final journey around the Realm, culminating in a battle against a huge dragon (mini-adventure), an onslaught of giants, and a visit to [[TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors some tomb or something]]. There are also two more traditional multi-module campaigns in the setting, The Realm Campaign and The Faw West. Dyer has also created ports of the Gold Box games Pool of Radiance and Secret of the Azure Bonds.

* ''The Sect'' - You face an evil sect gradually taking over your land. Epic in scale, and contains a bit of ANaziByAnyOtherName (the bad guys say 'Heil', burn books, and exterminate people by fire) in the vaguely medieval-German setting.

''Unlimited Adventures'', sometimes called ''Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures'' or ''FRUA''/''UA'', is a RPG GameMaker released in 1993 by SSI Inc., which allows to create RPG games in the "GoldBox" style, much like ''Pool of Radiance'' or ''Secret of the Silver Blades''. The game's system is based on ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (and is apparently a mixture of the first and the second edition). The basic world given to the player is based on the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' role-playing game setting, but this is in no way binding.

* MontyHaul: Many badly made designs shower the characters with money. One design in particular (From Beggars to Heroes) was content to throw thousands of money at you for the meekest reason. (For example, as poor beggars in the starting town, you can walk around and meet an unlimited number of rich people every few steps who will shower you with riches every time.) Oh, and you get experience for these, too.
