Ah, no worries. :)

But thinking about it, think that reference was just a throw away reference that was a rumor or one of the old Current Clack. (I miss those. :()

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

The name does seem familiar to me too, Kuje, before I read (and used) her entry from the FRCS, so I would hazard to guess that there was another (brief) appearance by her in earlier lore.

I like the idea of their being more then one Iyraclea, and I also think it would be more like the Dread Pirate Roberts then a title given (by her god?).

More like the Green Goblin thing from Marvel Comics - someone finds her lair (or perhaps even kills her), takes her stuff, and adopts the name.

Could even be like a Tan Chin-style Lich thing, wherein her spirit occupies the next sentient that stumbles upon her resting place (the site where she was last destroyed). That would work, because we could get a 'new' Iyraclea every so often, and yet still have the same old powerful one as well. If that were the case, I would make this a gift of Auril (perhaps a Auril-version of Chosen-hood?), as a way of granting her Chosen mortality. Like ice, you can destroy it, but it will reform with the next bitter cold.

Well, that's what I was thinking. That said, one can do what one wants with the idea.

"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams."

I had read the Perilous Gateways article, and had read the stats write-up in the Epic Level book, but now the scribe's mental gears are clicking and clacking.

And since my group's Shared Realms of 1373 involved a rather unreliable reality-altering artifact-staff (one of the Imaskarcana), who's to say she was killed in 1373?

And as DM, I hereby snag yon plot thread to weave into my 1370 campaign of adventuring Oghman scholar-priests. Huzzahs!

One usually has far more to fear from the soft-spoken wizard with a blade and well-worn boots than from the boisterous one in the ivory tower.
