Here's the weblink... they don't have EVERY 2nd edition Realms supp, but they have some good ones with some good info on more obscure areas of Faerun.

This Candlekeep page links to most of the same, but just from eyeballing they have a few more items on the Candlekeep Page than on the Wizards page.

I've been playing D&D a while. I have a good grasp of the structure - the rules, the roles, the monsters. But, most of the adventures I have played have been short boxed one, or random ones designed from the scary brilliance of the DM. I'd like to get a better understanding of the FK setting and timeline. Can anyone suggest a "FK for Dummies" link that get give me the background that I'm looking for?

Thanks!

The best advice I could give you is volo's guides. They highlight alot of good information, or pick up some of the novels although it's not a requisite cause many players haven't ever read an FK novel! The Drizzt Do'urden books give a good all around knowledge of dwarves, drow, and other such creatures as he runs into alot of different people.
