    The Forgotten Realms is the default campaign setting for most D&D 5th Edition adventures. The setting was created by Ed Greenwood in the late 1960s, and published in D&D by TSR in 1987. The setting has spanned every edition of the game since AD&D 1st Edition.

    Ed Greenwood​

    Forgotten Realms creator Ed Greenwood has a series of articles here on EN World. Notable Realms articles include:


    The planet is called Abeir-Toril, and the continent of Faerûn (fey-roon) is the setting for much of the content, especially the Sword Coast. There are additional continents, including Kara-Tur (eastern-themed, setting of Oriental Adventures), Zakhara (arabian, setting of Al-Qadim), Maztica (mesoamerican), and Anchorome; plus the Underdark, home of the drow, mind flayers, and other subterranean races.

    Sword Coast​

    The Sword Coast, an area of Faerûn, is the setting for many D&D 5E adventures. It includes the cities of Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter, Candlekeep, and Waterdeep. It is named after the Sea of Swords, which it lies alongside.
