''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 Creator/{{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.
