A welcome message from the scribes of Candlekeep and a taste of work in progress and coming soon.
|14-NOV-1999||1) Research is currently underway by TSR to produce
a new Forgotten Realms Hardcover book to become the core base product
of the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. This product will be released
after the new AD&D 3rd Edition Rulebooks in Q3 2000. Much core
material will be included in much the same way as the previous FR Hardcover
and the main books of the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting boxed sets,
detailing the geography, main NPC's, deities, magic etc.
2) Interplay now have a new area on their site providing information and screen shots on the upcoming sequel to 'Baldur's Gate': Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn Computer Role-Plauying Game.
and Black Isle Studio's (creators of 'Baldurs Gate') are currently developing
a new Forgotten Realms Computer RPG called Icewind Dale,
if you thought Baldurs Gate was good, check out the information and screen
shots of this new game on the official
Icewind Dale website. Icewind Dale is due
for release in the part quarter of 2000.
2) TSR plan to release a CD-ROM containing out-of-print material from the Forgotten Realms. The following is taken from the AD&D 3rd Edition FAQ by TSR:
"A CD-ROM product featuring most of the out of print material published for the Realms will be released in either 2000 or 2001, depending on how fast the material can be scanned and prepared for distribution. That product will become the cornerstone of the setting, allowing future designers to reference even the most obscure part of Realmslore safe in the knowledge that locating more detailed information is only a mouseclick away for the DM".
