I think it did. As I recall, Evermeet now resides in the Feywild... with a slight temporal echo of the Green Isle now sitting where Evermeet used to be.

That reminds me. Mystra had her Chosen as a way to protect the Weave, giving parts of herself to mortals. In doing so, she basically foresaw her demise (again). A hypothesis that just came to me is that, even though they say there is no longer a weave and thus magic simply works differently, perhaps in actuality, the weave is simply different as it has been re-threaded by the essence of the Chosen, and the remaining few keep it intact (and so it is simply not made of the same powerful divine strands, but weaker ones). Could be something worked into a campaign plot, doubt that is what WotC is actually planning (unlike the reincarnation of Karsus plot )

Well, as we saw in the "Shadow of the Avatar" books and elsewhere, Mystra's Chosen retained part of her divine power, which was the 'silver fire' [see e.g. The Seven Sisters pg. 6], upon her death, so that Mystra/the Weave could be reconstructed. To restore the Weave, even in an altered form, probably would've meant the restoration of Mystra as well.

Rightfully so, as true devotion is rewarded by the mighty, as has been proven by Malik el Sami yn Nasser.

Symrustar's Spellbinding. Think about it. Anything cast at the caster who cast Symrustar's Spellbinding wouldn't affect it, and the caster could actually learn the spell. If we consider all of the following: Waymeet, Dragon Rage Mythal, Imaskar wards, Sundering, Dark Disaster and Mythallar as area of efffect spells, a caster who can cast Symrustar's Spellbinding will be able to learn all of these, and not be affected by them. Heck, if you claim Karsus's Avatar was a spell that targeted a certain someone, if it targeted the caster of Symrustar's Spellbinding, you could learn that too. You'd have all the greatest spells in Faerun.

Does not that spell have a limit of level? I do not believe that this spell can make you know the 15 level spells.

It was a spell created by Symrustar Auglamyr, mentioned in The Fall of Myth Drannor, which is available for download from the Wizards website. It oculd only be cast if you were wearing Symrustar's Choker, which acts as a personal spellbook.
Sill, reagrding your question, I quote: "The magic also can only affect and deconstruct up to the caster's level in spell levels."
Of ocurse, there's really no point in learning a 15th level spell if you can't cast it.

I would find a way. Hence the spell Melcar's Weave Sphere, which acts a a cunductor/component for the weave itself making it possible to cast any level of spell, if you just use enough Weave spheres In theory that is.!!!

By the way... Where could this spell be found ingame? Where would my mage go to pick up information about sayd spell?

As I said, this spell was created by Symrustar Auglamyr, and can only be learned and cast if you're wearign her Choker, which acts as spellbook. Symrustar disappeared during the Fall of Myth Drannor, in the explosion during the Battle of Shadusk Glade which killed Malimshaer. Her Choker was found on the ground after the battle. It was left as an adventure hook - elves could have taken it, it could still be in the ruins of Myth Drannor, etc.

Ahh... Yes you did, didn't you! Kind of misses something about that spell.

Sage,

Oops, my mistake. I clicked the wrong icon. Should have been the garbage can, not the arrow. I deleted it already, though.

So true my friend. I have tried something like that myself, but i blew op in my face. Ed must be lvl 100 to cast a lvl 20 spell like that!

My spell was called Nicolai's Create Puny home setting, and it was as I said, an epic fail!

I think "The Shadowstorm" should be included in the options. True, it was stopped while barely at its peak. But had Rivalen been late in stopping it, it could have turned a considerable part of Faerun to dust.

Shadowstorm is kid stuff.

Szass's dread ring ritual. Had it actually been properly cast then all of Thay, probably all of Faern, perhaps all of Toril (or even the entire cosmos) would've been completely erased from existence.

I like Galanthar's Gnostic Chains, from "Secrets of the Magister".
GGCs would put the Kai-Bosh-ken on many of the Spellcasters mentioned above.

I don't think so. Look at what happened to Ephyras. Toril would have suffered the same had the Shadowstorm not been stopped.

Ah, yes, you're right dennis, that place was a write-off. I sort of thought of it being the consequence of (Shar's) divine manifestation more than being caused by some clumsy mortal's spell/ritual. I suppose the definition blurs when you consider Szass was planning on expending (some of Bane's) divine power to work his own magic.

I found a little bit of intelligent chatter here about Shadowstorm stuff.
