The Forgotten Realms
Welcome to The Forgotten Realms. Where drow can become good, elves inhabit the forests, and dwarves dwell in the mountains. All is peaceful, for the most part. Yet wars have been waged and will be again, magic has changed the face of the world and even gods can die. Nothing lasts forever, not even in memory, as even the gods forget. The good sometimes perish, and the evil survive. But this is not always so, for everything comes to pass. May you enter, and enjoy your stay, perhaps you may even survive a time.
Firstly, you do not need to worry about knowing anything about the Forgotten Realms to join. We are a helpful community and will provide plenty of sourcebooks and information.
Second, we are first and foremost simply a community fanbase for the Forgotten Realms setting. However, everything has a place in the realms. Dice RPG's, any kind of roleplay, and anything else you can think of. Don't feel left out simply because you do not know any rules.
Third; we are a loving, tolerant community, despite the setting's overreaching xenophobic theme. If there's something you'd like to try out, by all means, give it a shot. We'd be happy to help with any questions you might have, advice you'd like to hear, or Dragons you'd like to sic on the rules-lawyers for giving you too much advice. Thankfully, the stick-in-the-mud rules-lawyers are rare here... Right?
Fourth, we strive to be an active, open community. If you join, you will not be disappointed. Stick around, you'll be glad you did!
Finally, and this is the most important. Have fun! Or the drow will do things.
