@TheEdVerse Hi Ed! Big fan of FR since 96. How agriculture (and basically everything else) is functioning in Realms, because of threat from monsters and wilderness? How can I best explain that to my players?

Local subsistence farming goes on everywhere in the Realms, as everyone has to eat. Most folk grow up knowing the wilderness, with monsters roaming it, is all around them, and that and farming and gleaning wild foodstuffs is just daily life. Roads and merchant… …travel along those roads, bringing food and goods from afar, are constantly improving, so everyone is seeing more food/less starvation, and more cool new things they can't make themselves, all the time.
This is what "everyone" is used to, "normal life." :}#Realmslore
