well it looks like no-one is biting. I still think Sammasters scroll was one of the Nether Scrolls (see my earlier post).

ooops.

I don't know if it's a case of no-one biting, it's just that any comment either in agreement or disagreement is simply words - there is no "proof" one way or the other as the source material is so scanty. It's like me postulating that Laeral spent at least one year in Myth Drannor before its fall (through the time conduit spell or one of the time portals) because her spell "Laeral's Dancing Dweomer" is in the spellbook known as The Wizards Workbook which contained spells from the apprentices of the Seven Wizards of Myth Drannor. This supposition "seems" right, but I can't "prove" it as all I have is a few disparate timeline/realmslore references which point to the above, nothing definite. If you want Sammaster to have had access to one of the Nether Scrolls then all well and good (and I personally like the idea on a cursory, intitial thought basis) but it's difficult for the rest of us to say anthing other than, "I think that's a good/bad/so-so idea.", which doesn't really add much to the thread. Cheers.

Master Krashos,

Did anyone ever find out the answer to this? I looked and couldn't find anything either.

Best regards,

Hello all,

I was just going through my subscriptions to keep or unsubscribe from certain ones, and this one was very interesting to me.

Bumping to see if anyone ever did find anything else out about what that spell was, that Sammaster though to challenge the Morninglord with?

Best regards,

Indeed, there are other possibilities. Including simple "it was added to the empty pages by a later owner".

Also, not impossible.

Master TBeholder,

I agree with Master Krashos regarding the scroll issue. It seems plausible, but there is a dirth of information that would provide credibility to the idea.

It would be fantastic if we could get an answer from Steve Schend as a person who was somehow involved in the Netheril boxed set (said Special Thanks To), as well as Eric Boyd who was a proofreader at the time. Slade and Jim Butler did the work though, so not sure how they are reached.

Best regards,
