Reagan is famous for using the term "shining city on a hill" (to describe the U.S.), although of course he may not have coined the term.

Reagan did coin the phrase, although it hearkens back to John Winthrop's sermon in 1630, "For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill, the eyes of all people are upon us ...", which itself echoes the Sermon on the Mount: "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid."



You learn something new at Candlekeep every day!

Wow, I didn't know that--thank you for the information.

To be honest, I think it had more to do with WotC's "points of light" concept than Ronald Regan.

The Orc King definitely has a lot to do with the points of light concept, I just found it humorous to read Drizzt musing about the orc kingdom and/or Mithral Hall and/or the Silver Marches becoming "the shining city on a hill".

Hmm, was Drizzt reading Ronald Reagan's speeches? I was kind of amused when he used the term "shining city on the hill" in Journal Entry #4.



Yes, I as well was surprised as heck to find out Drizzt ( Bob Salvatore) was a closeted conservative

Actually associating that in any wayto an orc kingdom could be offensive.


Should have been "a stinking pile of refuse on a knoll."
