Laws and rules must be observed at all times. Even by kings. For if a realm is a bright-armored knight, every rule broken is a piece torn away from his armor that a traitor's blade can thrust through later, with its wielder crying, "But in days gone by, so-and-so set aside this rule, why then cannot I?"
— Royal Magician Vangerdahast Aeiulvana, on the laws of Cormyr

A guide to the Forgotten Realms that anyone can edit, covering all editions and media.

FRA Procampur map
Procampur, formerly known as Proeskampalar, was a city-state in the Vast, lying on the north coast of the Sea of Fallen Stars and the eastern shore of the Dragon Reach, situated at the western end of the North Road after Maerstar, and on the High Trail from High Haspur.

It was an old and established city, originally settled by dwarves from Earthfast and human refugees from Jhaamdath in the Year of the Starry Shroud, −153 DR. In its time, it prospered off trade with Westgate, was conquered by Impiltur, was nearly attacked by Cormyr, and suffered plague and dragon raids, but also warred against pirates, orcs, and hobgoblins, and Mulmaster and Sembia. It grew into a proud, enduring, and wary city, with a long heritage.

Procampur was an independent city-state, ruled by the Thultyrl, who was advised by the Hamayarch. It had a mutual defense pact with neighbouring Tsurlagol, and friendly relations with many neighbouring states. It was also the richest city on the north coast of the Inner Sea and in the Vast, famed for its jewelers and metal-smiths. The city was home to the very first Thayan enclave, the greatest temple of Oghma in the Domes of Reason, produced the great eastern explorer Vilhiard, and played host to Koja of Khazari. Procampur's most unusual feature was the districts that divided the city by function and occupation, each with their own distinct roof color. These divided the people too, giving them a rigid social structure, but they were proud, well mannered, and orderly.

New & Upcoming Releases

Quests from the Infinite Staircase
Quests from the Infinite Staircase is an adventure anthology for the Dungeons & Dragons 5th-edition ruleset released on July 16. It updates and adapts six well-known adventurers from earlier editions of Dungeons & Dragons®: The Lost City, When a Star Falls, Beyond the Crystal Cave, Pharaoh, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, and Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, using the Infinite Staircase as a linking story.

Step through a Door to Adventure

The Infinite Staircase spirals in a dreamlike expanse, with doors leading to fantastic realms. It's home to the noble genie Nafas, who hears wishes made throughout the multiverse and recruits heroes to fulfill them. These pleas summon adventurers to lost caverns suffused with planar energy, fairytale gardens in the Feywild, futuristic spaceships, and other wondrous locales.

This anthology weaves together six classic Dungeons & Dragons® adventures while updating them for the game's fifth edition. You can run these quests individually or as a campaign that takes characters from level 1 to level 13.

GT-comic-cover
The Grand Tour is a limited-edition comic published by TSR, Inc. in 1996. Mainly used as promotional material for Dungeons & Dragons and its campaign setting, the Forgotten Realms, the comic features the now-mature characters from the Dungeons & Dragons animated series, and popular characters from the Realms itself.

The famed sextet of adventurers, Bobby, Diana, Eric, Hank, Sheila, and Presto, appear in Shadowdale after somehow arriving from a different world. During their journeys, they had befriended the magical unicorn, Uni, and even faced off against Tiamat herself. Now in Faerûn, they meet the Old Mage, Elminster, and the wizard of the group becomes his apprentice. Elminster and his new student explore the Realms, where they observe legends such as Drizzt Do'Urden and Qilué Veladorn, and even meet the well-known storyteller, Volothamp Geddarm.

Today in the Realms...

...it is 23 Flamerule, or the 23rd of Summertide. Selûne is in the first quarter 🌓. On this day:

  • The city of Silverymoon celebrates Moondown, the third of its ten summertime festivals leading up to Midsummer.
  • The drow city of Menzoberranzan begins an eight-day trade fair known as the Open Days where visitors, even those of other races, are free to wander where they like, including into noble compounds. Displays of martial and magical prowess are put on to impress and intimidate rivals and illusions of Lolth are put up in the air over the streets.
