The Forgotten Realms is a Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting created by Ed Greenwood. Originally created by Greenwood as a child, the Realms became codified as an official Dungeons & Dragons setting during Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition, and has since been a major setting in every edition of the game. The majority of Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition material is set in the Forgotten Realms.

Notable sub-settings of the Forgotten Realms are Kara-Tur, Al-Qadim, and Maztica. In addition, the Arcane Age sub-setting is set in the distant past of the Realms.
