FK History

Postby Nardom » Sat Sep 15, 2012 3:16 pm

So, I'm working on a project that involves the history of Forgotten Realms (and Forgotten Kingdoms, where it differs). Being as I haven't been around nearly as long as some of the other players, and in theory a lot of time has passed, I'm wondering if there are any events "worthy of the history books". Preferably things that have happened 5 or more years ago RL (Which would equate to 60 years IC).

There may be some books involved. Ultimately, I would like to see a merging of the FK and FR worlds into a combined history, with this project, as well as bringing new players more fully into the FK world, and older players perhaps somewhat more into the FR world. Things like the time of troubles, the spell plague, the fall of Myth Drannor, and other historical events that older players might not know about, but could enhance RP (Those I will work on and research myself mostly, but if you have a favorite bit of FR history you'd like to see included, by all means, let me know!).

I would request that responses be done via PM. There is a reason for this, but not something I want to get into!

Thanks in advance for all contributions. Notice, I probably won't be able to use everything submitted, but I will surely try!

PS. If you know of any books currently IC that correlate to this topic, that would be helpful too, and can be submitted either via PM or in response to this forum. The latter would be quite welcome in this case, as it might spur others to read it as well.

I personally think it would be neat if you did this in a solely IC manner. It has great roleplaying potential for your character and for others involved.

This is a great idea. I hope that your reason for wanting to do this solely through PM is not 100% concrete.

I think it would be a really cool idea to try to codify all the big 'events' of FK's history and lay them out, the big RPs, the most important characters, their friends and enemies over time...

Well, I agree that doing this ICly would benefit, and I'm sure that will happen naturally. However, for my purposes, I would still appreciate OOC contributions as well.

But yes, what Solaghar said. And if you can offer any help, I'd be very grateful!

Laro: If you want to help do this ICly at all, seek me out for some RP! I'm around :D

I think it's a great idea and I'd help ICly if only I had more under my belt...

The museum in Waterdeep is a great place to start - several major realm events specific to FK are documented there. These books also apply, of which I'm aware:
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part I" by Saranya
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part II" by Saranya
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part III" by Saranya
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part IV" by Saranya
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part V" by Saranya
A book - "Into the Abyss, Part VI" by Saranya
A book - "The Rescue of Waukeen" by Ormud
A book - "The battle for Ardeep" by Ryldaen
a book - "Waterdeep and the Firelord" by Milla DeSaynt
a book - "Ranger History by Janon"
a book - "A History of Ixinos by Summer"

There are other history books, but to my knowledge these don't contain any FK-specific information, being based instead on canon FR history:
a book - "Towers of Tomes: A History of Candlekeep" by Deltheric Stillwater
a book - "A History of Waterdeep" by Vaedryn
a book - "Songs of History" by Kelvan
a book - "A History of the Northern Sword Coast by Summer"
a book - "Elven History" by Penryn
