Toril is the name of the world (Abeir-Toril, to be exact), Faerun is the name of the continent on that world where 99% of everything FR takes place.

You know what is missing in these kind of game's trailers? grin
Just for once, a mentioning of at least this kind of information. Thank you so much for it.
We are just thrown into the midst of it all with almost no clue about what is going on 100% of the time! ^_^

And it really looks like not even the original creator of it all was sure about what is supposed to be what.

Fae'run for example has the "Fae" within it, but its not part of the Faewald, not all of its inhabitants are Fae and it is the name for this "Earth like place material plane".
So far so easy to remember.
Continent, planet - what exactly does not matter.
But most probably the place the players run around in.


Let us hope Larian will put a spectacular and scenic library in the game later on, recording the history of the game's universe.
I would spend much time there.

Faerun has Fae in it because the name is derived from Faerie, the ancient Elven homeland (ie the Feywild, pretty much). Likely by Elves still using the word after they'd passed from the Feywild to the material plane.

"Earth" is so named because so many people have ears.

Is it called "Forgotten realms, D&D universe, Fae'run universe"?

Not even trolling I am not sure.

Ixal already said this, but D&D is the game, Forgotten Realms or the setting (including all the various realms of said setting), Toril is the planet, and Faerun is the continent.

Here is a map of Faerun. This game takes place along the Sword Coast, which is the western coast on the map. Act 1 seems to be somewhere in Elturgard if you compare it to the in-game map and what is said about being just a few days from Baldur's Gate, which of course is the titular city of the game.

That looks like the 4e map though. It changed a lot of the world and most of those changes were gone back on again in 5e.

I KNOW !! grin

Which videogame taking place on this continent at least, IS NOT in immediate proximity to the Swordcoast? xD
I joked about this with friends a few times.

" You know, this videogame series that takes part in the universe of the Swordcoast! " ^_^

And yes having sex with a feline humanoid is bestiality, I dont care how anyone disagrees about that. Same with lizardfolk, same with any and all beastraces.

But where do people draw the line? wink
You have to be specific or the madness will never stop! grin
For example -> are Humans not just a form of Ape/Monkey and therefore WE TOO ARE JUST BESTIALITY? ^_^

See? You need to be super accurate! Or else...! ;->

I have accepted Anthro's pretty easily. As long as the face is humanoid in structure, its not a "beast" for me.

But
° Kobolds
° Tabaxi
° Dragonborn
^ THEY TOTALLY ARE and its disgusting for me. Those type of heads DO NOT belong onto a Humanoid body. That is an afront against Humans!

Where is my armband? °tuccs on°
It is time to defend the honor of our humanoid blood! grin
And allthough I write this with sarcasm, I am not ironic in my rejection of Furryism!! ^^

I respectfully disagree with the notion of romancing humanoid creatures that are fully sentient and therefor able to consent being beastiality, but I understand other players discomfort with it. But I still think if they add them, they should have valid romance opportunities because in setting they are in fact sentient races that can fully consent and therefor would be treated like a human in relationships. Just not force the content on players, so that players do not have to expose themselves to it. But this is coming from the perspective of a Furry, but also someone who hates actual beastiality with a passion cause it is essentially rape. So I may be skewed in perspective cause I see anthro stuff as entirely fictional and fine as they depend on a consenting individual that is humanoid, hence the anthro in anthro.

No I don't. People know exactly what we are talking about. This specificity and goalpostmoving is just people trying to hide behind how clever they think they are but it won't fool anyone.

This is how bestiality-supporters behave:
>Hahaha look at that stupid peasant he thinks that having sex with a horseheaded pseudo-humanoid is wrong LOL what a white trash mothafucka.

BTW humans fucking monkeys is also wrong.

Murder is also wrong. We should probably remove all of the combat from the game.

Murder is something you will never do IRL.
Sex is something you will.
Well... you probably actually won't if you unironically are a furry.
Never mind.

This is the first time I ever saw a respectable post coming from a pro-Furry identifying person.
In a videogame forum! x'D Hahahahahahahha!

Bestiality is rape huh? Well - I dunno about that.
I never really cared about that topic since it just disgusts me in general.
But even I came across some °cough° ... videos while I was so bored that I was actually searching for porn videos in the internet.

And before I could stop or click the video away, I couldn't unsee anymore what I have already seen. (x_x)
So I ask in this manner: " If a dog has a really good time fucking a Woman who also wants this, is it really rape? "
Hahahahahah.
Maaaan how did we got here? grin
Huhuhuhu. ^^


Well for me the "consent" part of a "real Furry Humanoid" would not be important.
If it has the 100% head of a Beast, even if everything below the neck is super hot, I would not want to tap this.
This is just too wierd for me.
And even I watched Lionking as a kid. The thing which I suspect started it all.


But I guess I can respect Furryism people who value consent and spirit more over the outer apperance. And only those.

Yes! Exactly! It's not fucking beastiality, ffs. They are sentient humanoids that communicate with humanoid languages, what the fuck. People are so god damn ridiculous with their moral hypocrisy sometimes. I say hypocrisy because all those morons yelling about how horrible beastiality is never give a damn about any other aspect about how animals are abused in any other context, particularly not if they draw advantage from their suffering and death. People are scum.

And ANY romance option is just that, AN OPTION. You don't wanna have sex with anthropomorphic lizards? THEN DON'T. Jesus. -_-

Yes, it is bestiality, you will not push this shit down my throat. They are not humanoids they are called a BEAST race for a reason, stop your goalpost-moving.
Also its funny how you bring up animal abuse but you act entitled to have sex with "sentient animals" because they are somehow "not animals". Sexual objectification much?
Some people may be scum, but all bestiality freaks definitely ARE scum.

Also no, it's not just an option. Nobody should be allowed to have sex with animals anywhere, ever. Fuck your freedom, that's a door nobody should ever be allowed to cross, no matter what.

I'm not aware of any of these things being called a beast race. If you're going to make claims like this, you should probably provide some evidence.



On the other hand
  • Centaurs, you should probably stay away from, as they are monstrosities; and
  • Dryads, you might be into, but they are fey and so not an option. Sorry.


And here are a bunch of things that actually are beasts.

Also, fun fact: humans are animals!
Also, also: we are talking about an imaginary world - there are going to be lots of things that don't map neatly onto things that exist in this world.

It isn't goalpost moving. It is the definition of bestiality you're disagreeing with. "Sexual intercourse between a person and an animal".

Unfortunately humans are also animals. So how do we define what it means to be a person? Most people point to sapience. And Tabaxi, lizardfolk, kenku, etc. are all as provably sapient as human beings are. Even within the lore of Forgotten Realms these "beast races" are not classified as literal beasts, but as humanoids. The same as every other playable race in the game.

You can find it gross if you want, but trying to draw a moral line on this subject is pretty ridiculous.

Dryads seem to be such transcending beings in nature, they appear to me they never know themself
" Is that Humanoid down there a full fledged person or is it just a sextoy? "
But I guess this is just what one would expect of them.
When they have such magical abilitys that they can literally f*ck around with people and they cannot do sh*t against it. grin

Only true on a basis of agreed normality. We as Humans are not even able to truly percieve our world around it.
° We know air, bacteria or wind exists, but we cannot see those things.
° We do not know what is inside our owns worlds oceans appart from echolon images but even those cannot reliably send the form of underwater life back to us.
° We do not even know what other people are truly thinking. Not even our dearest love one's.
^
We are just "expecting" the world to be in certain ways.
To behave in certain ways. But we dont know what it will actually be!
All of our wisdom is based on experiences in a world that has only "something" resembling a form of reliable continuity.
Wisdom safed in a wierd biological hardware called the brain...
... recorded down in a form of memory that corrodes over time.

And memory is often recorded more epic, beautiful or impressive as the actual thing was.
Just watch a few Movies from your childhood again and you will notice EXTREM differences in sensation.
But maybe it was just you that has changed and not the world.
" After all... what 'is' real... when our own mind's cannot be trusted? " - N'zoth


Reality, pfffffffffffff - a form of collectively agreed upon expectation of outcomes during our daily lives.
Nothing more nothing less.
