Ilbratha-SoFS
Ilbratha, the "Mistress of Battles", was an enchanted bloodstone-bedecked bronze short sword with a long and storied history. It had the distinction of being part of the royal regalia of two kingdoms, to be carried by their heirs: the Forest Kingdom of Cormyr on land and the merfolk kingdom of Eadraal in the Inner Sea. However, the sword was lost to both realms, its whereabouts unknown but always sought after.

To Cormyr, Ilbratha was one of the Lost Swords of State. It was commissioned by Azoun I and went with him on campaign against the kingdom of Valashar in the Year of the Leaping Hare, 376 DR. Ilbratha rallied the troops, becoming a symbol of power and of Azoun's victory over the Shoon Imperium. But it was lost in the wreck of the prince's ship, Valashar's Bane, then was rediscovered then lost, time and again.

Finally, it went under the waves again, becoming Haalorth, "the Warrior's Fang". It was swung by Tarag, a sea ogre chieftain and builder of the Axe Kingdoms. Then, famously, it was borne by the merfolk princes and princesses of Eadraal for some seven centuries, as the official Heir's Blade. Finally, in the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, the mermaid warrior princess Jian wielded it in battle against the conquering wereshark Iakhovas, until she was slain and the blade lost to history.

Realms of Valor
Realms of Valor was the first anthology of short stories from the Forgotten Realms, published in 1993. It was edited by James Lowder and features stories from many contemporary authors of Forgotten Realms novels, as well as many of their characters, in adventures tied in to recent novels and Realms events, including a Ravenloft cross-over. In the Afterword, Jeff Grubb presents a short history of the development of the Forgotten Realms to that point.

It includes:

"The Lord of Lowhill" by Douglas Niles • "Elminster at the Magefair" by Ed Greenwood • "One Last Drink" by Christie Golden • "The Bargain" by Elaine Cunningham • "Patronage" by David Cook • "A Virtue by Reflection" by Scott Ciencin • "King's Tear" by Mark Anthony • "The Family Business" by James Lowder • "Grandfather's Toys" by Jean Rabe • "The Curse of Tegea" by Troy Denning • "Dark Mirror" by R. A. Salvatore
From the secret annals of Realms history come eleven never-before-published tales of valor, featuring the greatest heroes of that magical world—Drizzt Do'Urden, Arilyn Moonblade, Adon, Elminster of Shadowdale, Jander Sunstar, and many others—told by your favorite authors, including: R. A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, Douglas Niles, Troy Denning, Christie Golden, and others.

65DX ToA ProductShot
Tomb of Annihilation is an adventure module for 5th-edition Dungeons & Dragons set in the Forgotten Realms. It sees the players explore Chult and pits them against the infamous archlich Acererak.
Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world's greatest roleplaying game.

The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who's ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.

When they finally succumb, they can't be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.

The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.
