All Things Obscure: Forgotten What?

We’re back for another round of obscure gaming stuff. This time we’ll be briefly exploring three Forgotten Realms supplements that are obscure and may be worthy supplements for youth table.

pic504871_mdForgotten Realms Interactive Atlas – This CD-ROM supplement didn’t get much exposure or made the wide rounds when it was first released, but this is one product many Forgotten Realms fanatics wish to have. Most definitely a collection worthy item, but also a worthy item for use at the game table. This atlas was originally released in 1999 and it would be awesome if it was revised with modern graphics.

pic522793_mdNinja Wars – This is truly one of the most obscure Forgotten Realms modules. Ninja Wars never saw wide distribution. This was released at a time when B-rated kung-fu movies were on the rise. Not surprised that TSR tried to take advantage of the interest in ninjas. Not sure this module is one that would want to run. Hmm… Ninjas hired by a political figure to disrupt an annual pilgrimage might be fun.

pic1090261_md1 on 1: Warlords – A series of game books that never really took off. Only ten titles were ever published. This book series allowed two players to compete against each other as they traverse the adventure. This particular book is based on the Kara-Tur region of Forgotten Realms. From the back cover — “Inside are two books for you and a friend to use in playing an all-new kind of adventure.” Any book that gives you the opportunity to play a game with your best mate one on one is worth a look.

    I for a good number of years still had the Forgeten Realms Atlas CD. I wish I still did. It was amazing for its time. And still would impress most GM’s
