The Misbegotten Realms were a place somewhere.[1][2]

Geography[edit | edit source]

It was the site of the Verdant Desert, which was formerly known as the Verdant Forest before something Nimrod of Nump, the mage who made his lair there, did.[1]

The realms had some unexplained, and possibly unwanted, connection to Earth, recording several strange and occasionally regrettable references to its popular culture of past decades.[1][2]

Notable Locations[edit | edit source]

One of the realms was the Kingdom of Slumdudgeon. Within its borders stood the legendary House of Out, whatever that was.[1]

Notable Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

The realms were home to such mages as Nimrod of Nump, inventor of spells and magical items and mishaps; Mooncalf the Monocular, who once cast Bigby's interposing eye without another eye handy; and of course the great sage Elkwhisker, who went to Earth and rambled on about all this.[1][2]

Society[edit | edit source]

It was a silly place.[speculation]

Appendix[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

The Misbegotten Realms are of course a parody of the Forgotten Realms, presented in a pair of articles for April Fool's issues of Dragon magazine. We're really glad they're not canon, but they're included here for the readers' edification.
