Yes, because Undermountain has not been overdone at all, having been included in more publications than literally any other location in any fantasy setting...


It's all about beating that dead horse to death.

It has been confirmed over at EN World (http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?651693-Lost-Tales-of-Myth-Drannor-Now-On-DMs-Guild) that a Print on Demand version will be available through DMsGuild "right around GenCon or so."

Seems to me the like goal here is to reset Myth Drannor to 2nd Edition, which is exactly how I liked it; just work in a couple explanations of how Phaerimm and Alhoon have returned and there you have it... and the baelnorn are back, having only been physically destroyed and now reformed.

Good luck. I've been watching them on eBay, and I think the cheapest I've seen was still something like $100.

Will this be available as Print on Demand (i.e. a physical product)? I'd buy that in a heartbeat.
CorellonsDevout Posted - 15 Jul 2018 : 20:31:15
I did, too.
Brimstone Posted - 15 Jul 2018 : 13:35:15
Got a copy...
Wooly Rupert Posted - 14 Jul 2018 : 21:46:17
It's finally up on the DMs Guild.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 09 Dec 2017 : 16:31:14
As I recall, Ed's explanation was that there was a barrier raised around the tree itself, and the barrier punched thru the falling city of Shade.

So as I see it, there's nothing to reconcile - the parts of the city that had been reclaimed were destroyed, but a small area around the tree (maybe a circle 50 or 100 feet in diameter) was untouched.

I forget what Ed said, but maybe the tree of souls "collapsed the mythal into itself". By that, I mean maybe the tree is sentient and it drew upon the nearest major power source to generate some kind of "barrier" to protect itself? Maybe the tree itself has gone into "safe room" mode, and its surrounded by demons and devils... all of whom are greedily rubbing their hands together to try and figure out some way to break through that barrier and get their hands on this beautiful tree full of soul energy that they want to corrupt. In fact, I know a lot of folks aren't extremely fond of god theories, but maybe this tree is itself an avatar of some elven deity (possibly Rillifane Ralathil... possibly Angharradh) but one outside of the god's control and if it dies it weakens the god itself.

Dont. For the last 2 editions a conscious decision was made to ignore (and indeed wipe away) all previous lore. As a result you cannot hope to reconcile "lore" produced with such a design philosophy.

But im just negative.

Thanks, Matrix. Is good to know that they left the potential for players to help Ilse to rebuild Myth Drannor, for those who didn't like the "old elven city as an evil dungeon because civilization is just for the superior homosapiens" approach.
CorellonsDevout Posted - 09 Dec 2017 : 01:32:50
Oops! I misread the comment ^^;
TomCosta Posted - 09 Dec 2017 : 01:23:46
Actually, Matrix said Ilsevele didn't abandon the dream....

Is that what Lost Tales says? I knew about the elves being refugees in Semberholme and Evereska, but I didn't know about Ilsevele abandoning the dream.

Thanks, Wooly. I guess I will be wondering about what happened to the elves of Myth Drannor for a little bit longer... (because that is the only thing that I want from this book )

Nothing I've seen, though I almost never go to the Wizards site anymore, and I could have easily missed an announcement.

I do see the book on eBay from time to time, but it's usually being sold for $200 or more. Even if I had that much laying around, begging to be spent on something frivolous, I don't think I'd be willing to drop that much on a single book.

It wasn't even a hardback. There were a couple of copies present at the Candlekeep seminar, and it was obviously a soft cover.
CorellonsDevout Posted - 18 Aug 2017 : 00:58:18
I know, but it would give us an idea, and a better understanding of the "state" of MD, and the elves.

That can be one deep rabbit hole
