Thank you for Faerun – I’ve been playing D&D since the late 80s, but haven’t been to Forgotten Realms until recently. It is an amazing, complicated, wonderful setting. What was it originally for? It was originally just the fantasy setting (multiverse; connected to our real world and many other fantasy settings via gates) for my 5-year-old (and then 6, etc.) self to tell fantasy stories to myself in. :} Starting about a decade before D&D.
