The Forgotten Realms Atlas was a book produced by Karen Wynn Fonstad and provided detailed maps of the Forgotten Realms, a fictional setting in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.

The atlas also included timelines of various novels set in the world. The book was 210 pages, and was published in August 1990.


The Forgotten Realms Atlas is an indexed book which contains three-color maps from Forgotten Realms modules and novels.[1] This includes large, small scale regional maps (one inch to two hundred miles), as well as detailed location maps and diagrams of story and scenario areas, and focuses on the Moonshae Isles, the Northwest lands near Waterdeep, and the Western Heartlands areas around Cormyr and the Dalelands.[1] These large scale maps cover the areas detailed in Forgotten Realms game modules and novels that had been published before the Atlas.
