Dark perils and great deeds await.

Welcome to Faerûn, a land of high magic, terrifying monsters, ancient ruins, and hidden wonders. From the forbidding forests of the Silver Marches to the teeming cities of the Inner Sea, Faerûn encompasses shining kingdoms, monster-infested wastes, endless caverns, and sinister citadels. The Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting presents the most comprehensive fantasy world ever described!

This book contains all the details you need to play Dungeons & Dragons adventures in the Forgotten Realms setting:

  • Dozens of new races, feats, and prestige classes for your characters.
  • The Faerûnian pantheon, including over 100 deities and powers.
  • Highly detailed regions, new monsters, mysterious sites, and two short adventures to begin your campaign.
