Getting my Forgotten Realms on

So, I have been thinking of doing a bit of DMing in my group, just to spice things up a bit. And since we are playing in the Forgetten Realms, I have delved into my collection of old school adventures, and have found three that are either set in the Realms, or can be easily adapted to it.

I have no real experience with the Forgotten Realms as a DM since we mostly played Dragonlance or Greyhawk in my younger and happier days, but I find it a bit refreshing to try a new setting, even a setting that gets a lot of heat from various online gamers. Personally, I try not to think in terms of good and bad, it’s just different. And to be honest, I don’t think the Forgotten Realms setting is half bad. Sure there a lot of overpowered characters, but one can always reimagine them if need be. Or ignore them all together. It’s not that different from other settings. Imagine playing Dragonlance with Raistlin Majere running around hurling magical spells at everything and everyone.

I am looking to run the following adventures: To find a King, Baltron’s Beacon and Under Illefarn. These will be part of a greater narrative that has been built up over the last couple of years of campaigning.

Will this endeavor ever come to fruition? I doubt it. All the D&D projects I have started over the past 20 years have fizzled out even before I got going, and this will undoubtedly not be any different. However, as my lack of intelligence is evident, I will give it another shot.
