The Loremaster's Guide to the Realms Volume I: Villains
Scope: The Loremaster's Guide to the Realms Volume I: Villains will be a 32 page treatment that supports the Realms through it's diverse and well-informed fan-base. Book I will focus on Villains. Please see below for recommendations on areas that may be covered. Keep in mind that we are augmenting existing Realmslore and that we are here to promote the Realms in a meaningful way.
- Villainous Profiles
- Villainous Locations
- Villainous Items (artifacts, weapons, armor, books, etc...)
- Villainous Organizations
If you have ideas and wish to participate, please reply here with what you have in mind. This thread will serve as a living document, so check back often for updates as people start to stake out their ground. Several of us will be working to keep the project's scope on track and ensuring that this turns into a quality piece for Realms fans to enjoy for years to come.
Note on Era: You are free to write in any era you wish, we only ask that you have the appropriate references to existing lore and that you not intentionally invalidate Realmslore that exists in the future of your piece.
BIG DISCLAIMER: This project should never invalidate the sanctity of the Realms. We are here to add, not detract. Your work must be such that it can easily be used in another setting, if not the Realms. This is more than an issue of copyright, and speaks to the respect the writers, authors, and game designers should have for working on the world and characters we love.
