The Forgotten Realms is a campaign setting for the D&D fantasy role-playing game. Commonly referred to by players and game designers alike as "The Realms", the planet Toril is shared by humans, dwarves, elves, goblins, orcs, and other peoples and creatures. Technologically, the world of the Forgotten Realms resembles the pre-industrial Earth of the 13th or 14th century. However, the presence of magic provides an additional element of power to societies. There are several nation-states and many independent cities, with loose alliances being formed for defense or conquest. Forgotten Realms centers on Faerûn, a sub-continent in the northern hemisphere of Toril.
The Forgotten Realms are not considered to be canonically part of Magic 's Multiverse. The cards tell the story of Drizzt Do'Urden and some of his friends battling Frost giants in the north of Faerûn.
Some iconic D&D characters that have traveled the various D&D planes of existence are being featured as Planeswalker cards. However, this doesn't mean that these characters have a planeswalker's spark in the sense of in Magic 's lore. According to Wizards of the Coast, they wanted to make these characters as cool as they could possibly be, and as Planeswalkers were a regular part of new Magic sets - the Planeswalker card type in their opinion would make a great fit.
