Watermarked PDF

Forging the Forgotten Realms: A DM's Kit for Running the Realms makes new and experienced DMs into Forgotten Realms campaign pros by giving them world-specific character names, campaign calendars, date conventions, and tons of useful tables and advice!

Compiling several existing resources that are specifically geared towards making the Realms more user-friendly, this guide also contains several new and expanded pieces that will help new DMs understand Faerun better and help experienced DMs find useful options and variants or employ fun new results that fit the theme and lore of the Forgotten Realms.

In this 100 page guide, you'll find:

  • The Calendar of Harptos, a fully laid out 12-month calendar with moon phases and holidays, along with an appendix of seasonal celebrations and holidays as well as a blank Calendar of Harptos page that you can use for setting up your own game world calendar or modify to your whims.
  • The complete Roll of Years, featuring all the known named years in the Faerun's past, present, and future!
  • Names of the Forgotten Realms, compiled lists of First and Last names extracted from the writings of Ed Greenwood, the creator of the Realms!
  • Out of the Abyss DM Kit & Screen, featuring tons of advice and useful indexes for Underdark campaign, and a 4-panel DM Screen customized for Underdark/Out of the Abyss content in both Portrait and Landscape layouts!

An excellent compilation of useful rules. You probably won't use everything, but you will use a lot, and it will be nice to have the option of using the rest when necessary. [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
