What are some forgotten kingdoms

Forgotten realms

The Forgotten empires are a fictional world that was designed for the role-playing game Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. The idea came from a series of short stories by the author Ed Greenwood from 1967. One of the rich is basically the planet Abeir-Toril, with the main events being concentrated on the Faerûn continent. Over time, other worlds from the AD&D role-playing game were added to Toril and so Faerûn bordered Zakhara to the south, Kara-Tur to the east and Maztica to the west of the sea. In addition to Ed, numerous other authors have since made their contribution to the rich, creating new novels with their own heroes and stories. Among the best known are R.A. Salvatore, Elaine Cunningham, Troy Denning, Jeff Grubb and many others. Since the early 1990s, computer games have also been added, adding a few new episodes and opportunities to the realms.
