Being a travelogue of a blogger's summer vacation through the continent of Faerun.I suppose I was always meant to take this journey. As a big fan of Michael Palin's travelogues like 80 Days Around the World, Pole to Pole, Full Circle and the rest, I would lie awake wondering what other lands needed to be explored, especially for someone like me who was never very keen on travel. The only frontier left open to me was that of the Imagination, and thankfully, I found those Lands quite open to me.
I propose then my own Palinesque voyage through the continent of Faerun, which you might know as the Forgotten Realms. As I write this, I prepare to parachute down from a spelljamming ship to the planet Toril, on a spot, Luck Gods willing, conducive to the start of a summer-long adventure. Each week, I hope to send you a postcard from a different place on this biggest of continents. If I find the correct postage. I hope my inexperience as a traveler won't get me into too much trouble, but if I keep to the better roads, I shouldn't expect any problems. Any place I should absolutely visit? Who wants a souvenir?
Going down into dungeons is a big no-no.
So I hope you'll join me next week to find out just where I've landed. I'm gonna try to hit a city first. Never been much of a country boy. You think that'll be a problem?
