2023 Review for the Forgotten Realms Lyceum

 Oloré friends of the Realms! It is a new year! It is now the Year of the Ring, 1393 DR, if you don't jump with fourth and fifth editions. First, I want to say thank you to any readers, whether active or one-time comers. This has been a passion project now for almost four years, and I'm happy to be continuing my journey through the Forgotten Realms this year. I also briefly want to look at statistics.

I posted 36 articles last year, 32 more than the previous year. This was what I was hoping for, publishing at least twice a month to make up for my unintended hiatus in 2022. I still have some reviews coming for novels I read last year, and now I can list all the Realms books I enjoyed in 2023.

Realms of Valor

Realms of the Underdark

Realms of the Deep

Baldur's Gate by Philip Athans

The Parched Sea by Troy Denning

The Veiled Dragon by Troy Denning

The Druid's Call by E. K. Johnston

The Road to Neverwinter by Jaleigh Johnson

King Pinch by David Cook

Sea of Swords by R. A. Salvatore

Sandstorm by Christopher Rowe

I had previously read three Realms anthologies and in 2023 I doubled that. I also finished Paths of Darkness and read the tie-ins to the Honor Among Thieves film. But I largely read standalones. I also only read eleven, which is considerably less than a typical year. 

So, in 2024, I am hoping to get back into some series. There are many, many trilogies I have and been wanting to read and I think I will start with the Cormyr Saga. Cormyr is one of my favorite locations and I like Greenwood and Grubb's writing. I'm also looking at the Moonshae Trilogy, Starlight and Shadows, and many, many more. 

What are your Forgotten Realms plans for 2024? Amarast!
