I dont know if here's the right place for my question but i will take the shot.

Right now i'm narrating a 3.5e ( 1374DR ) game and its located on Aglarond , i read somewhere that shes missing at this point , i probably saw it on UE book but i cant find the text right now.

Is it true ? Or im doing a blasphemy ?

The last extended period of the Simbul's absence (before the famous one in 1425 that you guys are talking about) I have recorded in my GHotR expansion was in 1367 DR.

Also apparently dead forever is Symrustar Auglammer (another Chosen) who El just happened upon in the Underdark. Her character was introduced in El In Myth Drannor.



Ed through THO has basically said the Simbul's story is not done. I was upset at first but after hearing what she (THO) wrote here at the Keep after the book came out I calmed down. I'm sure the Simbul is not "dead" in a permanent way.

Only from our point of view (which is why the setting got so hokey from 1e-4e). We have to remember Elminster lived with the SAME goddess for most of his 1000+ years.

I just realize something - we should pity any world that becomes a D&D setting. From the point of its publication it becomes a rollercoaster of horrific events.

I picture people at TSR/WotC looking through their scrying glasses for more worlds to plund... err... detail, and folks on worlds huddling in fright as the 'giant eye in the sky' passes them over...

"Phew... they decided we were too boring... thank goodness..."

Guess thats one book I no longer have to read.

Spoilers:
Anyhow, Manshoon 'killed' Elminster, and he was still 'alive' (sort of) at the end of Die Elminster, and Selune was still around as well after her own death (although she was sligtly more dead then El... isn't it odd how we can have 'degrees of deadness' in D&D?)

So being dead in D&D doesn't really mean the same thing as being dead in the RW. Its a temporary inconvenience, at best.

Prior to the Spellplague, Alassra had been leaving Aglarond to do Mystra-only-knew-what, and always managed to return. Her most prolonged absence was after the Spellplauge---the plague rendered her insane.

The infamous FR Wiki gives a synopsis of the Simbul's activities and locations, although I haven't read whatever Elminster novel isn't cited so I can't confirm the wiki's accuracy.



I have read them and it follows what occured in El Enraged. At least, that is how it is explained to us. Who knows what "really" happened to someone as connected to Mystra and as powerful as The Simbul is in the Art.

I thought she was missing after the events of the Spellplague?
