I'm not Ed and not having the singing voice and the bawdy twinkle in my eye, would never profess to be him. That said, I'll have a go at two of these questions and let Ed elaborate as he pleases. Ahh, it's nice to be back in one of my original sandboxes.

1) No more than two lines (in a column!) telling about the castles built in Dessarin Valley for many people, like the elembarans, in circa 200 DR, known as Mlembryn lands. Have you, my dear friend, any more words about that?



The Mlembryn lands were first mentioned in Ed's Athalantar article in Dragon #228. I included reference to these lands in my North Timeline and linked them with the refounding of Illusk and a few other references from 'Volo's Guide to the North'.

The GHotR didn't include all of the references to the Mlembryn lands. Two others are as follows:

225 Year of the Shattered Skulls
Gluthtor’s great orc horde is turned back by the elves of the Sword Coast lands, at the cost of much of their strength, in the battles of Five Falcons and Hungry Arrows. Many settlements of the Mlembryn Lands are devastated and settlers there begin to rebuild their homes and fortunes.

and

253 Year of Somber Smiles
The dwarves of Thornhammer Hold and the humans of the Mlembryn lands unite to destroy a troll army at the site of present-day Calling Horns.

Mlembryn was a wizard and early explorer of the North. He was a companion (and some say lover) of the famed Sabirine (see 'Pages From the Mages') and known to have plundered several Netherese tombs found in the hills north of Old Owlbear Well. Sages say that one of these tombs held the remains and magical legacy of Iaelendar "the Weaveservant", an archwizard of Low Netheril and creator of at least two unique types of magical scepters.

One of these scepters is described in an old, crumbling tome titled Tholontir's Magiography kept in the Vault of Sages in Silverymoon and states that the scepter is shaped like a hand and up to 5 magical rings can be put on the extended 'fingers' of the scepter allowing the wielder to access all of their powers and effects simultaneously!

Mlembryn is believed to have disappeared in the Year of the Wyrmclaws (176 DR) after leading an expedition into the Ice Lakes region north of present-day Luskan. Then, as now, the region was a breeding ground for teeming hordes of kobolds and his remains may yet lie moldering in some cramped, dark kobold warren.

2) Specifically in TGHotR, the Lord of Calandor, ruin of Delimbiyran, of Phalorm, of Elembar, of Tavaray, is mentioned only as "Lord (or Duke) of Calandor". Can you provide me with a brief lineage of this House? Where was Calandor located itself (the old one, before it was ruined in a battle of dragons)?



The Duchy of Calandor had its genesis in the fall of Elembar. The following is from the unedited and unchopped version of Eric Boyd's "Toppled Thrones" article that appeared in one of the last editions of Dragon magazine:

"In the Year of the Cantobele Stalking (342 DR), the fall of human-ruled Athalantar to an orc horde precipitated a hasty alliance between the Stout Folk of Dardath and the Fair Folk of Ardeep that was made permanent after the last Council of Illefarn was called. The Alliance of Illefarn then began debating allying with the humans of the region against the burgeoning threat of orc hordes rising across the North. However, before that decades-long discussion could reach any form of consensus, King Harnorth II Snowsword and most of the lands of Elembar fell to the Tarnished Tusk horde, which was in turn destroyed while invading the House of Stone, in the Year of the Fortress Scoured (511 DR). Only the capitol city of Delimibiyran and the lands immediately bordering it survived the orc horde’s assault.

Only a dozen years later, in the Year of Trials Arcane (523 DR), the elves of Ardeep and the dwarves of Dardath invited the humans of the Delimbiyr river valley, the gnomes of Dolblunde, and displaced halflings from Mieritin (now absorbed into Amn) to the Council of Axe and Arrow at the Laughing Hollow, where Phalorm, Realm of Three Crowns was founded. Javilarhh “the Dark” Snowsword, son of Harnorth II and heir to the throne of Elembar, was crowned King of Delimbiyran, one of Phalorm’s ruling triumvirate.

The ancestral lands of Elembar, along with the north and south banks of the River Delimibiyr downstream of the Laughing Hollow were reorganized as the human-ruled Duchy of Calandor and given to Javilarhh’s younger brother to rule, while the riverbanks north of the Laughing Hollow as well as part of the Dark Hills (as the Horn Hills were now known) were established as the human-ruled Duchy of Scathril under the leadership of Javilarhh’s brother-in-law, a descendant of the ruling house of Athalantar."

Calandor and Scathril were the two 'human' duchies of Phalorm and with that kingdom's fall, became the two most powerful noble families of the newly formed human kingdom of Delimbiyran, the Kingdom of Man. With the death of King Davyd and the fall of the Kingdom of Man, the duke of Calandor formed his own realm as did many other leading ex-nobles of Delimbiyran [as well as more than a handful of adventurers, mercenaries and rich merchants such as Azarash "the Silklord" (a wizened calishite merchant and exiled minor satrap of Manshaka), Feorboth "Fivepoints" Ulthin (ex-leader of the Steelshields mercenary company out of Athkatla) and Naelthas Yvirthal (a half-elf ex-adventurer and druid famed for leading the Company of the Brightmantle adventuring band in their successful three-season hunt of the green dragon Maerlithardrano in the depths of the High Forest)]. Most of these realms were swept away in the unrelenting orc raids of 702DR until the then Duke of Calandor, Mavilarl by name, united the ragtag forces of the humans of the Dessarin valley into an alliance and defeated the orcs at the Battle of Burning Winds (with the hidden assistance of the mages of the Covenant).

Following this success, the ambitious Duke Mavilarl sought to raise himself to a pre-eminent position among the polyglot realsm of the Dessarin Valley but the disaster of 714DR when the city of Delimbiyran was destroyed in a magical inferno saw a swift, charred end to his ambitions.

Centuries later, in 928DR, his descendant Salinarhh, known as "the Sly" to his rivals, brought the diminished and stagnant holding of Calandor back to a position of power in the region by a combination of deft diplomacy, alliances through marriage (he had 4 sons and 3 daughters) and the threat posed by his unshakeably loyal and battle-hardened younger brother Garlantarhh (a storied warrior in his time, famous for singlehandedly slaying the ogre chieftain Vorug "the Blackclaw" in hand to hand combat). However, Salinarhh's ambition met with active opposition from the allies and followers of Nimoar of Waterdeep. Nimoar's leadership in the First Trollwar a few years later, saw the focus of power in the Dessarin valley shift toward present-day Waterdeep, where it has remained to this day.

As noted in GHotR, the direct male line of the dukes of Calandor would die out in 947DR.

What sort of gods, beliefs and customs may have survived?

Hello all,

Was Truename magic a part of the high magic cast to destroy the drow deity of undead? If truename magic exist in faerun is it kept hidden since it's a danger to all beings, are any of your characters, Chosen aware of truename magic?

True name magic does exist in FR and it has since 1e at least. And yes, the Chosen are aware of it, which is why they don't give out their true names except for the few that they are close to, etc. The true names of the Seven Sisters, for example, are in the sourcebook by the same name. Ed, over the years, has also discussed true names.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Indeed. Truenames are part of the Realms both via the fantasy tradition [mostly notably in Le Guin's "Earthsea" books starting in 1968] and via D&D [see Unearthed Arcana's truename spell]. As ever, the Realms has its particular take, which we can read about here [from Ed], in Volo's Guide to All Things Magical [available as a free PDF download here], and various other sourcebook and novel references. Ed also describes a few specific truenames for certain Realms NPCs and how they function for them in his compiled replies here at Candlekeep -- specifically the '04 and '06 files.

I do recall Ed mentioning previous magic items (not necessarily scepters) that allowed a wielder/wearer to use more than one magical ring at a time, but can't remember the specifics.

My view is that with all such "good ideas" it would be very likely that many individuals through the centuries have come up with this concept independently of each other.

As I said, I'll let Ed pad it all out as he does so brilliantly.

Hello again, everybody. Ed apologizes for the paucity of his replies recently (family stuff plus frantic Realms-related work, as usual), and asked me to step in with a reply. So, fresh back from a busy little mission of my own, herewith my reply to a query from arry, to whit: “I was wondering, Dear Hooded Lady, what word or words to describe the 'death' of undead creatures were/are used in Ed's games?”

A lot of terms, depending on who’s doing the describing. “Destruction/destroying” was common, “disruption” decidedly less so. “Laying to rest” and “sending down” were colloquial clerics’ phrases, and “sending to dust” or “taking to dust” more formal, flowery (bardic or priestly sermonizing).
Looking over my notes, I find that Ed, playing The Simbul (NPC), uttered the words “unrest to rest” after she blasted a lich to glowing dust (the glow being her spell that “returned it to the Weave,” meaning removed all undeath from the dust-motes).
[BTW, re. createvmind’s recent truenames query, I recall Ed, in-character as Laeral, mentioning that truenames were Weave foci for a being - - that is, a way of causing the Weave to focus magic upon a particular creature.]
“Driving down” (Ed speaking both as an anonymous War Wizard and as a Sembian Lathanderite priest) was another means of referring to destroying undead in battle.
I’ll pass this on to Ed, and see if he can add anything more, when he surfaces from his long months of toil. I can assure you the man isn’t taking a holiday from Candlekeep, but rather pounding the keyboard frantically to try to catch up on all the design work and fiction writing he needs to get done.
love to all,
THO

Thank you Hooded Lady,

I'm sure your characters suffered their share of scaldings/burnings and all sorts of horrific wounds, if you had your hair burned away from an area of the body did Ed make healing magic restore your hair to whatever length it was prior to destruction or were you all sometimes bald in various regions at times?

It would indeed (you naughty, naughty lads; why, if this goes on, I'll have to be commanding some of you to whip me), but to answer the question seriously: Ed ran healing thus: tissue and skin completely restored, old air expelled as ash, new hair (in condition just as before, so if it was graying or going white, it still is) starts to grow immediately. The hair grows about an inch an hour, until it reaches the length it was before affected by the fire, with two exceptions: it stops growing immediately, ending the effects of the healing magic, if any other magic is cast directly on it or the body part it's growing from, or it is cut (sheared, trimmed) with "cold iron" (iron, steel, ferrous alloys). so much I can remember quite vividly. I think I'll leave the "quite vivid" part private until some scribe happens to ask a question that would 'legitimately' reveal it.

Hello again, all!
A surprise reply from Ed just arrived in my inbox, referencing a question recently (page 12 of this year's thread) asked by Longtime Lurker:


Yes, Mirt has fathered almost a dozen children, most of whom he's aware of, and some of whom he has cordial relationships with (I don't mean that the others hate him, I mean that they are in distant countries and know little or nothing about him). At the moment, I shouldn't say more, future fiction planning being what it is.
Or to put it another way, the only Realms-related creator I should by tying down is the lovely THO. Ahem.


So saith Ed. Whom I'll answer: any time, dear. ANY time. Purrrrrrr....

Thank you Lady,

Thats great subtle lore, my players may take sometime to decipher why they have sporadic hair growth from time to time.

Ed I'm a longtime fan of Stephen R. Donaldson, have you read his Covenant series and are you a fan as well? What I truly enjoy about your writing is the humor you're able to inject in often dire situations, was this just a natural "style" for you or inspired by others? I was reflecting on how Donaldson's writing sometimes left me drained from the intense delving he's capable of into mortal and immortal despair and suffering, ohh and the fact I often have to refer to dictionary due to his choice of words.

The scepter in question is not a Gaudle's Rod of Rings. If you'd noted the passage clearly, the scepter allows use of all the rings on it at the same time, not just one. This Netherese scepter should be considered as a 'proto' magic item, that is, an original, usually more powerful version of magic items that are more common in the present-day Realms. As the history of magic in the Realms has shown time and again, many ideas regarding spells and items are just pared down equivalents of older, more complex magic.

Hello again, all. I bring this swift reply from Ed:


Hi to all scribes. I'm sorry for my recent e-silences; I have family visiting at the moment, which today meant watching rainbow trout the size of small children being hauled out of an icy rivermouth in bright but arctic-frigid conditions with a fly rod (I was watching from the warmth of the car, not fishing) by, yes, a small child (and several dozen dressed-up-for-arctic-exploration adult fishermen who were NOT family).
This reply is for createvmind. Yes, humor is essential for me, in Realms and other writing; it's what humans balance against stress and rage and horror, and not including it makes my writing, in my opinion, not worth reading. thankfully, I can't seem to write, these days, without including it. :}
My favorite Donaldson work is DAUGHTER OF REGALS, which I re-read often for sheer pleasure, and highly recommend. I have, at various times, voted for it, the two Mordant's Need novels, and some of the Gap titles for various sf and fantasy awards (such as the World Fantasy Awards and the Nebulas), and Donaldson is a writer I always watch.
Right now, I must rush back to read something else, and write yet another project, neither of which I can speak publicly about, yet.
Let me just say this much: I am involved with something that you have just seen the first hints of (cough Blackstaff Tower cough), and boy, are Realms fiction fans in for some treats (yes, plural) in the future.
Must run, now; big family dinner (gathering of the farflung, some members meeting others for the first time ever) tomorrow.


So saith Ed, who will of necessity fall e-silent on that morrow. As for the rest of the weekend, he's not sure yet. It's packed, but if some spring lambs aren't born, one trip won't happen, and that may buy him a few moments to get online.
love to all,
THO

And to althen artren:
It depends on my mood - - and the fruit. I have, at various times in my life, been entirely unclad and covered in honey, melted chocolate, and crushed red wine grapes. The latter was the messiest and least sweet, the honey was a slippery disaster and TOO sweet (or so others who tried to, ah, lick me clean testified), and the chocolate sure got the sheets and the tub messy. However, a certain person involved in the latter cleanup said he very much preferred me "semi-sweet."
Take that as you will. HE did.
For the record, the honey bath was unintentional and work-related, the red wine was to help a friend make wine the traditional way (tramping), and the chocolate was for intimate fun (not my initial idea, but I was an enthusiastic participant). BTW, only those able to withstand pain should dabble in ice cream at from-the-freezer temperatures.
I hope this reply suffices . . . I can see a rather sticky road ahead, if it does not.

A question again, Mr. Greenwood (and THO!!),

What sorts of off the wall situation have you come across in the heat of combative or social events? Anything ever happen simply because you decided to do something creative?

For instance, in a game just earlier this evening (and in the same fight), I punched a bison in the face and strangled a mutant with his own tentacles. It was pretty amazing.

All the best.

Being sarcastic can be more telling than simply telling.

I must second Sir Hamster on that question. In the course of your job, you have been both shot and covered with honey that others (plural, mind you) needed to lick off.

I initially thought you were in some type of law enforcement, like an investigator. I think that theory has been safely sent straight down to Avernus. Now I have no idea. I am almost, ALMOST, ......... nah, never mind.

Teaches me to ask non-related game questions.
