Greetings fellow scribes!

I'm a relatively recent initiate into FR lore, having only picked up DMing over the pandemic, but have fully fallen down the rabbit hole. I'm currently starting up a campaign set in Rashemen and the surrounding lands, and have been trying to dredge up as much as I can about the Unapproachable East (and Deep Imaskar) as a result.

As someone who loves a good database, I was wondering if there was any sort of go-to reference library where one can look up all relevant sourcebooks, articles, games, etc. that reference a location or region? For instance, an entry on Aglarond might link to not only the 3e Unapproachable East sourcebook, but also the Spellbound box set, the 4e Living Forgotten Realms campaign in the region, and perhaps an article or two in Dragon. I'm tempted to try and build something of the sort myself , but I figure there's a decent chance someone else similarly obsessive has already done so.

Looking forward to picking the brains of more experienced sages and finding more obscure and revealing tomes deep in the stacks!

Welcome to Candlekeep!

Feel free to ask any questions you may have... A lot of us have been Realms fans for years, and we know a thing or three about the setting. Plus, we've got some of the authors and creators here!

As for the rest of us, we are friendly, mostly harmless, and occasionally strange... Enjoy your stay!

And to answer your question... There's the Forgotten Realms wiki to aim you in the right direction.
