I just had to clear this up..
is the new goddess of magic, after ToT called Mystra or Midnight?
When Mystryl dies for Karsus's mistake, the new goddess is called Mystra, but now when Midnight replaces Mystra, she still seems to be referred to as Mystra, Goddess of Magic Why?
The epilogue of Waterdeep (The Avatar Trilogy) does not seem to make it clear as to what the new Goddess is called....

The first time I saw that image, I just thought . . . where's her motorcycle? It's stuck in my head ever since. Well-drawn picture, but that jacket is a touch too modern-looking.

Brilliant Bookwyrm, just brilliant. Everyone is looking at me crazy right now, as I laugh to myself. Oh well, small price to pay. By the way, I'm glas you brought up the jacket, what is with that? Was Midnight one of The Donna's or something? Or was she one her way back from Sturgis when she posed for that painting?

The invoice should be invalid anyway, since it's going to be a long time before there's an Azoun VI.



damn typo.
Edit: I would edit that post, but it will further 'invalidate' the bill.
Artalis Posted - 03 Nov 2004 : 02:42:15
Like I said Bookwyrm you've got a real gift for this stuff. I wonder if any of the folks from Dragon have seen these tidbits.

Congratulations, you're a hit.

Bookwyrm Posted - 03 Nov 2004 : 01:47:18
Didn't notice that.

True... but... is that a billing dispute I see?

LOL time to que this up, Bookwyrm ;)

And don't go suggesting I do a "Conversations of the Gods" segment, either!


Why should we, when you did so yourself?

Absolutely, positively, beautiful. When the ideas hit, let 'em rip!

I figured as much. It was just a good way to request your version of that tale.

Wooly Rupert Posted - 02 Nov 2004 : 09:20:45
Bookwyrm, have you read Tymora's Luck? I think your spin on that one could be amusing...
Bookwyrm Posted - 02 Nov 2004 : 09:02:23
Go right ahead. This one I managed to write while awake, or as awake as I usually am, so just take it as is. Title it "A Day At Sune's Beauty Salon." Or something like that. I can't think of anything more creative at the moment.
Alaundo Posted - 02 Nov 2004 : 08:50:45
Well met

Splendid, Bookwyrm! I would like to feature such material in Candlekeep proper, if ye permit, of course.

Sune: "Why, Mystra, dear, you're looking down. Guy trouble?"

Mystra: "You have a really simplistic view of the world. You know that, right?"

Tymora: "Wait'll you've been around a while longer. After the first few centuries, she really starts getting repetitive."

Sune: "Oh, hush. Now, tell me all about it, Midnight."

Mystra: "It's Mystra."

Sune: "Whatever. What's the trouble with Kel this time?"

Mystra: "I just can't get him to notice me anymore. He's always too busy with his job."

Sune: "Did you try that jacket I gave you?"

Mystra: "That black thing? Yes, but he just said it looked strange."

Sune: "The pig. That's going to be a big fashion in a few centuries, I bet."

Tymora: "They were mortals once, or are those curls of yours crowding out what little brains you have? They don't think in those terms. (Besides, it was a strange jacket anyway.)"

Sune: "Maybe you should just try finding someone else. Hmm . . . you know, I keep getting a lot of thank-you prayers for your man Elminster. Why not use him for a fling?"

Mystra: "Are you kidding? After all the trouble I went through to make him forget Mystra?"

Sune: "Didn't you just say you were Mystra?"

Tymora: "She means the other one."

Sune: "Which one?"

Mystra: "The previous goddess of magic? The one Helm killed?"

Sune: "Oh, her. What was she thinking then, anyway? No matter. Say, maybe you should try Helm. It's a bit of a trick to get him out of that armor, but he's something like a lobster. Lots of work, but the meat's just . . . mmm, yummy."

Tymora: "And people claim my portfolio's limited . . . ."

Mystra: "I can't get Helm to talk to me straight anyway. I think he's feeling guilty over killing Mystra."

Sune: "Why'd you take the same name, anyway? It's just confusing."

Tymora: "Doesn't take much with you . . . ."

Sune: "Oh, hush. You're just jealous."

Tymora: "Like I could be jealous of an airhead."

Sune: "No, I'm a redhead."

Tymora: "Ought to be blond."

Sune: "Oh, I tried that one century. I remember Tempus liked it a lot. Especially when I dressed up in wolfskins for that costume party. Kept asking how many times I could 'rage' in one evening." [giggle]

Tymora: "Such a skillful pickup line."

Sune: "Clever, I know. Say, maybe you should try Tempus out sometime, Myssie. He's got a lot of energy."

Mystra: "All he ever talks about are his battles. If I want someone who'll just talk about his work, I'd just stick with Kel."

Sune: "Oh, come on, why do you want a guy to talk to? That's what we're here for. Just use guys as distractions. It keeps you sane through all the day-in, day-out work of godhood. Especially with all the prayers I get every day. Oh, by Ao, it's tiring."

Tymora: "All you have is just people asking for someone to fall in love with them. I have to deal with people asking me for help every other minute with finding a lost pin or nail. They even ask for help in fighting! Tempus wants me to stop doing that, anyway. Claims I'm taking his prayers and making him look bad at the end of every fiscal century."

Mystra: "At least he's generally nice about it. You don't have someone evil to the core trying to introduce new magic."

Tymora: "No, I do have someone evil, remember?"

Mystra: "Oh, right. Beshaba."

Tymora: "Beshaba. I don't know how that girl stays in business. How many worshipers do you get with her platform, anyway?"

Sune: "Hello? We were talking about important stuff, remember? Now, come on, Myssie, we need to give you another makeover."

Mystra: "Now? Again?"

Sune: "No time like the present! And maybe you could get Lathander. He needs to get over losing Tyche. Too bad that last plan of his didn't work."

Tymora: "I'm right here."

Sune: "Oh! Hehe. Sorry. Didn't think."

Tymora: "That's painfully obvious."



Ran out of ideas. Sorry.

hahaha I can imagine Sune, Mystra and Tymora sitting around in a salon complaining about their problems... lol. Especially Sune.
Bookwyrm Posted - 02 Nov 2004 : 04:26:27
Wow!

Winterfox can laugh?

Sorry. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it, especially considering all the language mistakes in it; I know you're irritated by them even more than I am, but as I've said, I wrote that while too tired to care much. (Like, for instance, using "peak" instead of "peek" . . . though that could have worked as a pun if I phrased it differently.)
Winterfox Posted - 01 Nov 2004 : 12:25:22
Just discovered this via some convoluted and random clicking, and I had to say, Bookwyrm -- that was fabulously funny. Thanks for the giggling fit, but I almost had to send you bills for my keyboard (which came dangerously to being splattered -- alongside the monitor -- with iced caffe latte from Starbucks).
Bookwyrm Posted - 01 Nov 2004 : 09:36:50
I'll certainly try. Of course, you aren't the only one looking to bury me in work.
