Pages from the Mages is an accessory for Forgotten Realms campaign setting using the AD&D 2nd edition ruleset.

"Any rogue can craft a spell—but it takes a really reckless fool to write one down."

Thus, the wizard Elminster introduces the latest collection of wizardly lore from the FORGOTTEN REALMS® campaign setting, including:

"All this could have been avoided, of course... If the handful of heedful folk in the worlds'd listen to me but a few moments more, much trouble could be averted—and, I suppose, much high adventure. Hmmm... perhaps 'tis the doom of humans to always rush in heedless of the costs—and to open and read every old, crumbling book they find."—Elminster

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Pages from the Mages provides no precise dates, only things happening X years ago, and mostly reprints from earlier sourcebooks like the Forgotten Realms Campaign Set and The Magister (sourcebook) (both assumed to be 1357 DR), without changing their own references to things happening X years ago. Therefore, dates should be decided based on earlier works, but 1357 DR may be assumed for most spellbooks.
