Welcome to Living Forgotten Realms, the largest shared-world D&D campaign! Living Forgotten Realms (or LFR for short) is a regionalized organized play Living campaign, and the first to utilize the new 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules.

adventures available. This is updated periodically from the announcements to the LFR Group.
There is also a separate site to download some of the adventures.
Story AreasIn 2011, the focus of LFR will shift away from the regional system and focus on 5 new story areas. These will be the focus of adventures in 2011.
The Rise of Elturgard -- Return to the story begun with the Battle Interactive and Specials of last winter’s DDXP with the Rise of Eltrugard. The ashes of Elturel and the trade of Scornubel will provide your PC with a home base from which to deal with the vast threat of the Plagueland, while trying to rebuild following the events of A Paladin’s Plague. This story area will have eight adventures in 2011 with two released each quarter and will largely focus on heroic tier play. The opportunity for the critical events decided by play to affect the next quarter’s releases will be high. I will be discussing how we will be handling critical events using public play and how we are doing away with adventure questions in a future post.
Sands of Calimshan -- The sands of the Calimshan and the surrounding areas hide plots of slavery, dark dealings in the arena, and feuding jinn. This story area will have three adventures in 2011 and will focus on heroic tier play.
Fight Against Shadow -- The tendrils of Netheril are vast and far reaching and in this story area your PC will fight against the tyranny of the Shades of Netheril. This story area will have three adventures in 2011 and will focus on paragon tier play.
Streets of Waterdeep -- The City of Splendors that we all know and love will take a new turn with this story area offering three adventures in 2011 focusing on paragon tier play. In 2012, LFR will feature three heroic tier adventures in Waterdeep.
Steel Skies of Returned Abeir -- Revisit the lands made famous by the first MINI-campaign in a land full of secret cults, dashing pirates and covetous dragons. This story area will have three adventures in 2011 and will focus on paragon tier play.
