In the world of Abeir-Toril, there is a land called Faerun. From the frozen Dales to blistering heat of Calimshan, from bustling Waterdeep to strange Mulhorand and insidious Thay, the people who inhabit this land come in every shape and size. Beset by war on one side, and the harshness of the land on the other, life on Faerun is difficult, but filled with outstanding variety. Good and evil are found in equal measure. Magic fills the air, and just when you think you've seen it all, there's always another plane.
