[Ostoria] Canon Sources

Post by Coronoides » Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:21 am

I'm looking to get organised with my research about Ostoria. What TSR and WOTC books contain information about Ostoria. I know of a few but there are huge gaps in my knowledge since I'm not a FR and because I dropped out of D&D when 3e was released and came back for 5e. This means I know very little about the 3e and 4e products.

Also no spoilers for Storm Kings Thunder please. I'm going to start playing that.

The List
Giant Craft 2e
Monster Manual 5e
Monster Mythology 2e
Storm Kings Thunder (I assume) 5e
Twilight Giants Trilogy novel 2e
Volos Guide to Monsters 5e
Need to convert races to D&D 5e? mathematical analysis of canon races and design rules: http://www.dmsguild.com/product/232813/ ... rs-Toolkit

The Forgotten Realms Wiki article for Ostoria has the following citations:
  1. ↑ 1.0 1.1 Ray Winninger (August 1995). Giantcraft. (TSR, Inc), p. 7. ISBN 0-7869-0163-2.
  2. ↑ Brian R. James and Ed Greenwood (September, 2007). The Grand History of the Realms. (Wizards of the Coast), p. 8. ISBN 978-0-7869-4731-7.
  3. ↑ Ray Winninger (August 1995). Giantcraft. (TSR, Inc), p. 9. ISBN 0-7869-0163-2.
  4. ↑ Ray Winninger (August 1995). Giantcraft. (TSR, Inc), p. 11. ISBN 0-7869-0163-2.
The article says it is a "stub", which means it does not fully cover the subject. (In fact you already seem to have identified several other sources they have not citated.) But you didn't list The Grand History of the Realms and I hope the page references for Giantcraft help.

THanks, guys looks like I've at least read the bulk of what's out there. That's a relief. Still more to read.
