Publication history[edit]

Player's Guide to Faerûn was written by Richard Baker, Travis Stout, and James Wyatt, and published in March 2004. Cover art was by Adam Rex, with interior art by Thomas Baxa, Beet, Wayne England, Carl Frank, Randy Gallegos, Rafa Garres, Jeremy Jarvis, Raven Mimura, Scott Okumura, Jim Pavelec, Steve Prescott, Rick Sardinha, and Ben Thompson.

Rich Baker explained that the older material updated in this book included some materials from the 2nd Edition Forgotten Realms Adventures hardbound, Volo's Guide to All Things Magical, Hellgate Keep, Seven Sisters, and "other sources that hadn't been mined very deeply for Forgotten Realms 3.0".[1]
