Hi again, all. From Ed:


My notes have yielded up a prominent painter of Suzail, circa 1357 DR: Elros Lazandur, an aging, crotchety, short and stooped man who does portraits and hunt scenes depicting nobility - - but refuses to do nudes or anything "modern." His work is well respected, expensive, and rarely comes on the market because noble buyers don't want to part with it. His house (including a front room shop/studio) is on Doloph Street ("DOE-loff"), which is one of the streets south of the Promenade and paralleling the Promenade, in the western half of the city.

So saith Ed. Who promises more, when he can get to it. (The Christmas tree is down after four years, so it's taxes now!!!)
love to all,
THO

Edit: fixed an Ed typo.

Unlike most I follow novel lore over realms gamebook lore, with Ed's lore superseding all whenever it conflicts novel and gamebooks.

No disagreement from me. I do the same thing.
I see Ed as the ONLY source (along with dedicated fan scribes such as Boyd, Krashos, Cortijo, the James brothers, and BEAST) of the "long view" of the Realms dedicated to maintaining overall consistency and caring about the world as a coherent long-lasting setting.

Question: On page 134 in Hand of Fire, Hlael and Korthauvar mention Shaaan and Larloch, Szass Tam and Maraunth Torr .

Who are Shaaan, and Maraunth Torr? Peers of Larloch, and Tam?

Or will I get a big fat NDA?

Never heard of them until reading Hand of Fire...

Thanks for any answers.

Hi again, all!
I bring Realmslore from the pen of the Master himself!
Back on page 5 of this thread, Penknight asked: “I know that women in the real world like to use flavored lip gloss and all of that, and I was curious if in the Realms women had anything like that. I have a female elf/fey'ri NPC that uses berries to flavor her lips, and I was wondering if any mages or anyone specialized in making things like that for women, and if so, what is it called, please? Thanks! Also, if it does exist, would clerics of Hanali likely be the ones that made if for the elven women? And are there certain flavors that are preferred by elfmaids?”
Ed now replies:



Penknight, you’ve hit upon a topic that has often featured in my home Realms campaign, but which was omitted from the published Realms from the outset (because of TSR’s desire at the time NOT to upset what some called “Gamers’ Mothers from Heck,” i.e. the religious-right complaints about D&D being Satanism or witchcraft; it was thought that anything that had to do with sex in the rules, including kissing, would just add fuel to the bad-publicity fires). As flavoured lip gloss would only arise as a game detail if kissing was going on, the subject was simply silenced.
In the “home” Realms, northern travellers of all races used bacon fat, plant saps, and anything else available (the jelly-like innards of the white cragberry, for instance; a juniper-like berry that grows on tiny evergreen tuft plants in mountain crevices) as lip balms in severe cold weather, to keep skin from freezing and cracking. Prostitutes (and sometimes, priestesses of Loviatar, Chauntea, and other faiths, or “just plain folks” who could afford it and wanted to do so, on wedding nights or festival nights) used various substances to dye the lips, flavour the lips, scent the lips, or impart sensations (i.e. the “glosses” - - which are called “mrathaera” by elves in the Realms, by the way, and “mrathaera” or the simpler corruption “thaira” by humans - - imparted drug effects to kissed creatures).
Among humans, mrathaera are well-known in Rashemen and in the Tashalar and Var the Golden, but few other humans know how to make more than one simple concoction. Any lasting gloss (that is, anything intended to do more than temporarily dye the lips and momentarily freshen breath or impart a scent or taste lasting more than, say, half an hour) consists of active ingredients and a waxier “base” substance.
Active ingredients consist of the juices of berries, essences (boiled down mixtures) of various herbs, and plant saps; the waxier bases are usually derived from certain evergreens, some berries, or even fats derived from crushing certain insects (such as the “layedur,” a species of large blue-green dragonfly abundant in Turmish, the Vilhon, and the Tashalar; carefully-dried layedurs are also sometimes worn as jewelry, pinned to hats or garments).
Most lip glosses can “take up” the tastes and scents of certain powdered herbs and spices (among prostitutes, a favourite is cinammon; mint is very popular among “just plain lasses” desiring to please lovers; lavender is very popular among elves); a mrathaera intended to make breath sweeter and lips tastier but not have a strong scent or taste of its own would utilize parsley or a similar herb.
Among known mrathaera drug sensations are the following: deadening the lips of the mrathaera wearer (against heat or bitterness, for instance), making a kissed person very sleepy (drowsy, slowed, or unconscious), or very excited (adrenaline rush) or very alert (all senses hyper alert; this can be useful going into battle, or when conducting stealthy forays in the dark), or bringing on hallucinations or pronounced dizziness, or imparting actual physical harm (poisons; hallucination, dizziness, and physical-harm effects almost always also affect the mrathaera wearer unless they have previously built up a tolerance to the particular substance).
Among elves, family elders are usually taught mrathaera-lore, and pass it on to younger family members (usually females and usually loners or plainer, more thoughtful individuals) slowly and secretively. Gnomes, halflings, pixies, and other woodland folk usually know much of this lore as part of wider passed-down family knowledge of herbs, spices, cooking, and physics (medicine). Among humans and half-elves, herbalists/apothecaries and various clergies (druidic in particular) specialize in such lore, and there are even a few assassins and courtesans (usually beautiful females) who use the more harmful mrathaera effects in their work. Knowledge tends to spread in times of war, when armies travel outside their “home” realms, and the camp-followers (prostitutes and healers) share information with their fellows and with those they press into training as needed.

Like all of my herb-lore (which was a mix of real and fantasy; that is, using invented plants and beastie essences such as red dragon bile), this sort of information was simply left out of the published rules. This was done for the same reason that Gary Gygax nixed my devil’s talismanic symbols from the DRAGON #91 “Hell Revisited” piece: the desire to avoid real-world experimentations and the troubles that could arise from them overrode all else. No one wanted the public relations headache of someone chalking one of my symbols on a church door somewhere, or the lawsuits from the grieving kin of someone who tried one of my fantasy herb concoctions and paid a fatal price. I don’t disagree with those decisions, by the way; sometimes, real-world considerations MUST trump the creative urge.




So saith Ed. Who is being extremely polite here, and neglecting to mention that it’s not just the lips up on the face that are sometimes adorned, but also lips rather lower down, too . . .

(strikes innocent batting-lashes pose that fools no one)

love to all,
THO


I've been out of town the last week and just now saw this posted. I wanted to say thank you very much, and that I'll put it into play immediately in my campaign. I find all of what was discussed very interesting, and stand in awe of Mr. Greenwood's creativity. Again, thank you very, very much.

Hello again, all. I bring you new words of lore from Ed, this time in response to HelldoG’s query: “1. Are there any beauty contests in the Realms? How do they look like? Who sponsors them? What are the profits for victory (Besides the obvious one.)?
2. Is there something like Heavy Metal (Or Metal generally.) in the Realms? How is it/could it be called?
What about other genres?”

Ed replies:



1. The clergy of Sune sponsor beauty contests wherever they have temples (and they train contestants in dancing, singing, graceful movement and speech, and assist them with dress, scents, and cosmetics). The “prizes” consist of taking part in public rituals of worship to Sune (and a share in the offerings given to the temple during such rituals). In addition, many folk of both genders who desire beautiful mates or models for hire attend such rituals, with an eye to “acquiring the services” of such groomed beauties (as bedmates, spouses, prostitutes, or well-paid and unmolested models or “decorative” household servants).

2. There’s no such thing as electrically amplified music in the Realms, but magic is sometimes used to augment both thudding drum rhythms and “singing” or “wailing” wind-instrument music that can sound like a “weeping” or “searing” electric guitar. In terms of chanted or howled lyrics, loud choruses, “dark” chords, and a driving bass beat, the songs used by some orc shamans to inspire (“inflame,” some would say) orc hordes before battle is probably closest to heavy metal.
In Waterdeep and Amn, in the 1360s and 1370s, there’s a rise in a style of dance music performed in festhalls, clubs, and at revels that uses multiple yartings (guitars) played swiftly in harmony, plus high-pitched sung choruses and a driving beat, that sounds something like the Blue Oyster Cult hit “(Don’t Fear The) Reaper,” and for a score of years before that there have been “minstrel bands” performing for nobles and the wealthy up and down the Sword Coast that centered on dominant male singers that sounded rather like Ian Anderson of mid-period (War Child and onwards) Jethro Tull, but if you’re thinking “louder and heavier,” it’s orcs or nothing. :}
As for other real-world genres of music, or too-close soundalikes, be wary: the Realms is a medieval to Renaissance –level DIFFERENT WORLD than our Earth, so although you could probably point to specific Realms music and say “that sounds sorta like” ancient, or chant, or baroque, or “Celtic folk,” that’s just what it is: “sorta sounding like.”
Of course, none of this stops you from having characters in YOUR Realms campaign develop music that sounds EXACTLY like heavy metal, and even have priests of Gond develop electric instrumentation. Just don’t blame me if some of the lurching undead who come after your characters look like Ozzy or Slash or . . . :}


So saith Ed. Who even now is girding himself for battle with the taxman . . .

love to all,
THO

She's always been one of my favourites. I did a write-up of her in one of the Candlekeep Compendiums. ED had a read before it got published and noted that I had made her "powerful" which he then said, was "as she should be".

Volume IV, to be specific. I remember that one in particular because not only was it interesting, but also because I feared I was being presumptuous in taking my (untrained!) red editor pen to the work of someone who'd already been published.

That's brilliant stuff, Ed. And, as always, your answers have prompted several new questions regarding my love of Realms music.

I want to research a few possibilities, first, before I get to them however.

Two more Chosen questions:
In Blackstaff, Tsarra asks Khelebn when was the last time so many Chosen (5 - El, Khelben, Laeral, Alustriel and Alvaerele) were last gathered, and he said that it was the closing of Hellsgate Keep. I thought of a greater gathering, with 10 Chosen - the ending of Elminster in Hell, with The Seven, El, Khelben and the Srinshee. This leads to the questions: Were there any other notable gatherings (not just a fun time when the Seven hang out together, or something) of many Chosen, and if so, what for?
In Farthest Reach, Storm mentions that El and the Knights of MD have gone off, and The Simbul has followed them, but before leaving, said something about the Srinshee. This makes it sound as if it is common knowledge that The Srinshee exists. Is that so? Or was it simply that a high elf lord and the lords of the Dales are privy to such information?

"Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?
Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly.
How much less them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation in the dust, are crushed before the moth?" - Eliphaz the Temanite, Job IV, 17-19.

"Yea, though he live a thousand years twice, yet hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place?" - Ecclesiastes VI, 6.

"There are no stupid questions – just a bunch of inquisitive idiots."

Hi again, all. I suspect Malcolm is correct, and the Warblade is NDA right now. I also know Maraunth Torr wasn't mentioned before HAND OF FIRE, and suspect Ed is saving him for a sometime-to-be-revealed purpose.
So there you go. We know Maraunth Torr is male and very powerful at the Art, but nothing more.

Oh, and a swift addendum for Menelvagor (Ed just came through with an e-mail), regarding this:
"Or was it simply that a high elf lord and the lords of the Dales are privy to such information?"
Ed replies:


It was simply that THAT PARTICULAR Dale lord is privy to such information, and that although all elves of that time and surface region of the Realms "know of" the Srinshee, THAT PARTICULAR high elf lord knows a little of her current existence and doings (whereas to many elves she's no more than a name from the past, of someone long unseen and presumably "gone").


So saith Ed. Adding little wisps of Realmslore to the great and growing edifice, daily.

Which leads immediately to the next question: Why are these particular lords privy to that info and know a little more of the Srinshee?

Menelvagor, re. this: "Which leads immediately to the next question: Why are these particular lords privy to that info and know a little more of the Srinshee?"
I'm obviously not Ed or THO, but my guess would be that the Srinshee has been active in some way in the Dales, in locations both of these lords are concerned with/govern/are interested in, so they've in the past gone seeking "who did X, and why" and come up with/were informed by someone, that it was the Srinshee. So they know of her presence on the scene where others don't.
I may, of course, be COMPLETELY wrong.

Well, that sounds good to me. Ed will know best, but I don't think that conflicts with Ed's "Tears So White," which is the only "what the Srinshee was up to, about then" published source.
We'll have to see what Ed says . . .

Erm... if by "current" you mean "between 1375 and 1385"... it should be (spoiler; highlight to show) in Myth Drannor... part of the Cormyr/Shadowdale/Anauroch mega-adventure trilogy is the return of the Warblade to Myth Drannor. The Artblade, on the other hand, is where we slam headlong into that big NDA wall...

Edit: added spoiler tags...

Edit: By way of another question for Ed, about the Srinshee in light of the above answer... I'm also interested in what she's been up to since disappearing with the Rulers' Blade in 666 DR... is there anything else you can share?

Playing in the Realms since the Old Grey Box (1987)... and *still* having fun with material published before 2008, despite the NDA'd lore.

If it's comparable in power with non-magical abilities, it's not magic.
