Quick question Sages.

I remember reading about a Baelnorn Bladesinger in one of the Return of the Archwizards novels. I think it was the second book. The Bladesinger was defending a Crypt in Myth Drannor from some Phaerim(sp?) and their thralls. Am I remembering right or did I lose my mind? If so what was this Baelnorn's name?

Thanks!

Corineus Drannaeken; The guardian of Irithlium in Myth Drannor. CR 20; Sorcerer 10/ Fighter 5/ Bladesinger 5.

Technically, a Baelnorn is just a elven Lich with elven qualities. A "good" Lich if you will. The Baelnorn Template allows for all classes in the end. As long as you meet the requirements, you're golden.

It's better than Jack Ravenwild, of Raven's Bluff. Ye gods, that one bugs me.



Yeah, everyone knows there is no Ravenwild family in Raven's Bluff... its the Wildravens



Ravenwild or Wildravens, either name would be fine -- from any place other than Raven's Bluff. It's like having a character name John Waterguy, from Waterdeep, or Tom Silverwood, from Silverymoon.



Isn't that exactly how they named Alustriel's kids. Jr Silverymoon #1-#8. Just in Elvish.

-Like Game of Thrones has "generic bastard surnames" that are kind of tailored for the area- Snow, Sand, Pike, etc.- I could see some kind of raven-related name being a kind of stock one for the people there.

Sometimes you just use whatever comes to mind. I have a gnome NPC named Pornock Felndar.

Obviously the namesake of the Dezlentyr wonder twins, Corin and Corinna.

Is "all of the above" an option?

I would be more helpful, but I've not read those books in quite some time... Even if I was reading Realms books more frequently than I am, those books would not be anywhere near the top of my re-read list. (likely, not even on that list!)

Very funny o furry one! I read those novels like 15 to 20 years ago myself!

Many thanks Arivia!

I'm more surprised there aren't more of them.
If the baelnorn-ified elves retain spellcasting skills, why not spellcasting and fighting style?
