Forgotten Realms is a campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons 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 the curst in 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 Greyhawk, Dragonlance, and 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.
