Created by long=time novelist and world builder Ed Greenwood, Forgotten Realms is the default setting for Dungeons & Dragons. It is acceptable for creators to use this setting when publishing on Wizards of the Coast’s DM’s Guild community.
The projects for Forgotten Realms will be diverse and varied, however the current project is focused on a series of Dungeons & Dragons adventure modules that take place in the Border Kingdoms, a region of Forgotten Realms that hasn’t been heavily published.
On the frontier of south Faerûn, Sundered Hold stands alone above the swampy brackish wetlands below that meander a short northward march toward the sea and the opulant Border Kingdom city Derlusk. The rangers that staff this stronghold have never seen battle. And given its relative safety from potential threats, they never should. But all of that will change as an unexpected horde of infernal creatures take siege and attempt to take the stronghold for themselves.
Exiled to the remote marshes south of Derlusk, violent and traitorous radicals who call themselves the Consortium of the Crest are trying to cause mayhem and destruction in order to destabilize the region and restore the former kingdom. Taking refuge in their secret base of operations, Hollow Haven, the Crest is trying to bring fiends from the Nine Hells into the Border Kingdoms, and if they are not stopped, the fell will dominate the region and destroy everything in its path.
The Temple of the Nine Stars is renowned throughout the entire region as a haven for any faith, any god, or any religion. The frontier is home to so many that cannot find solace in their faith, so far from home. However, there is something sinister at play in this beloved temple at Derlusk. It seems someone brought a host of demonic creatures into the region because of the clerics here. Whatever they are hiding, it is bigger than only a host of hellspawn. Unless the squabbling guilds of Derlusk come together to confront this threat, the Border Kingdoms will confront the rising of the Nine Hells at their doorstep.
