Forgotten Realms

Welcome back to the Vintage RPG podcast!

We kick things off with the super-appropriate-for-July, Target-exclusive board game adaptation of Jaws. Its fun!

The main course is Forgotten Realms, Ed Greenwood’s classic campaign setting. We walk through the creation of the world, its absorption into Dungeons & Dragons and just barely scratch the surface of all the stuff that has happened with the Realms over the years. The Realms are huge, so we’ll be visiting them again, no doubt.

We wrap things up with a look at Things From the Flood, the follow-up to Tales From the Loop, the RPG about the 80s that never existed. Flood moves things up to the 90s and now your kid characters can die, because the 90s are gritty!
