For such a key page, in my opinion this looks cluttered because there is an overload of wiki links. I think this would really benefit from a major revamp so that a visitor knowing nothing about the Forgotten Realms has a clear starting point here. Fw190a8 08:31, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree to a certain extent. Since Faerûn and "the Forgotten Realms" are almost synonyms, you could almost just leave this page with "Faerûn is the name given to the primary continent, though mainly pertaining to the western portion and generally does not include Kara Tur and Zakhara." As such, refer to the main page of this site for information on Faerûn and the planet, Abir-Toril, where it lies." If you wanted to do a little more you could have a brief overview section followed by short descriptions of individual regions (the North, the High Forest, Dalelands, Great Dale, Thay, etc.) which link to full pages for those regions. But again, this would be like re-inventing the main page. --Fizzygoo 02:03, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

It's one of those things that's such a fundemental part of the wiki and a high profile job that nobody has taken it on! Notably the regions are only the geography of Faerûn whereas the article should probably contain something of its history too, and anything else relevant. At the moment, it's just a recreation of the geography portal. Fw190a8 17:07, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Main mapEdit

The main image on this page, the map at the top, was recently changed from 3rd to 4th edition. Personally I feel that the 3rd edition map is better placed here. 4th edition will have a total of 2 products: one sourcebook and one adventure. 3rd edition has much more source material, and the landscape of 3rd and 3.5 edition is practically the same as 2nd edition, which has even more material. I feel that the 4th edition map should feature on this page (current copyright status pending) but not as prominently as the 3rd edition map, which reflects Faerûn as it exists in the vast majority of this wiki's articles.
