I know that Brian loves the Realms and aches to get to work on it (he did a LOT of work on the Royal Lineage of Cormyr, and the shape, scope, and depth of the current document is largely his doing, though of course Ed, Eric Boyd, George Krashos, Grant Christie, Bryon Wischstadt, Tom Costa, and many others have done yeoman work on it, too), particularly Cormyr, but WotC opportunities have been few . . .

love to all,
THO



Ahh... the Cormyr Lineage... 'twould be a serious crime to leave that locked up... I've earlier presented my arguments for publication, most (if not all) of which I'm sure Ed has already thought of. Lore should be for the players, but it doesn't get to the players without being stripped of NDAs and published.

I would be perfectly happy to sign the NDAs myself and do the work free of charge to pretty up the formatting of the Lineage for PDF-format publication, as I know that Ed and Brian are very busy and I can't see WotC sparing time in their product schedule for it (it being almost entirely lore and completely devoid of mechanics... which is probably why they're in no great hurry to see it into print).

Anyway, there's my offer of assistance in the matter. Not that it will do much good, I suspect...

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

Hello again! I was hoping that Mr. Greenwood could tell us something (anything, really ) about the Red Knight, and her life as a mortal on Faerun. I'd be interested to know anything, like I said. Her name, date of birth, if she had anyone special as a mortal, age when she was transformed into a deity, the name of her pegasus she was riding in Grand History of the Realms, or even the name of the armor or weaponsmith that created her gear for her. I always wanted to know more about her, and hope you're able to tell us a few things, please. Also, I always thought that she and Torm would kind of hit it off rather well as a celestial couple. Did the two of them ever spend time together, or have discussions on anything like that? I realize that's a lot, but I'm hoping something I asked will be allowed to slip through the NDA, or that some special phrasing on my part or someone elses, might let a few things through. Thank you, and as always, I appreciate your time Lady THO and Mr. Greenwood.

Hey, don't forget, scribes: if you bring what you want signed to GenCon, Ed is always happy to oblige.
In the old days, before he got so swamped with requests, he often wrote errata into the books he was signing, added lore in the margins, and even did sketches.
I've got several of the results, and I'm not selling nor trading, no way.

Greetings Lady THO and Mr.Greenwood!

A big thanks from me and my party for all the effort you put to make the Realms the de facto place for our RP-adventures!

Last week one of my players created a new character, a Gold elf with an Evermeet Navy background. What i seek is lore and information about the Queen's Navy, perhaps ranks, ships and/or important npcs (?)

Attention! Captain on the Bridge!

PS:(do the elves have a special word for captain?)

EDIT: Since the above question is reffered for the years 1372-1375 (after the Invasion)

My request for realmslore was posted here at first:

Great questions! I'd love to learn more about Red Knight myself, so your questions are seconded here.

I'm not sure where it was, probably Powers and Pantheons, in the Red Knight's entry, but it was kind of implied that the two were cautiously courting, and if not that then that they definitely got along well. I'd have to go have a dig around in my books to see if I can find a quote, though.

As a DM I'd probably resist "hooking them up" in my Realms. Romantic relationships between deities seem to be the exception, rather than the rule (and also tend to end in disaster - Lathander and Tyche anyone? Mystra and Kelemvor? Oh and Lathander and Chauntea also, since Lathander's "ascension" was also his demise), and I'd just follow that trend. (And I imagine the Red Knight is a big old dyke anyway. ;) Oh yes, even I fall prey to using stereotypes! I am so ashamed... *blush*)

As for the rest of your questions, I suspect you'd going to find great adamantium walls of an NDA rising around the answers. (It seems to me that NDAs cover the bulk of lore about the entire world of Abeir-Toril, what we as scribes here are privileged to consume is just the tiniest sliver of the most delicious chocolate cake in all of history. )

As the spell ends, you look up into the sky to see the sun blazing overhead like noon in a desert. Then something else in the sky catches your attention. Turning your gaze, you see a tawny furred kitten bounding across the sky towards the new sun. Her eyes glint a mischevious green as she pounces on it as if it were nothing but a colossal ball of golden yarn. With quick strokes of her paws, it is batted across the sky, back and forth. Then with a wink the kitten and the sun disappear, leaving the citizens of Elversult gazing up with amazed expressions that quickly turn into chortles and mirth.

The Sunlord left Elversult the same day in humilitation, and was never heard from again.

Caolin, re. this: "But, I would make it so that those who learned magic without the Weave would still be free to use their Weaveless magic."
Over several years and editions of the game, in discussions with Ed (and hearing him in GenCon seminars with TSR and later WotC designers) I think this will always be the case. As in: the Weave was only ever one way of accessing the nature forces and energies of the world, and there were other, less popular magical systems that functioned as well as the Weave. To arcane spellcasters, the Weave IS magic, but it's really a way of understanding (and therefore accessing) the infinitely complex weave of interacting energies. There are other ways.
So, yes, warlocks and sorcerers and others wouldn't "lose their powers" if the Weave was refounded.



Some interesting stuff right here! This has got me wondering, if a character in the 4e timeline was to travel back in time using the rules from the Arcane Age source books, could those characters still cast their 4e spells in a pre Spellplague time period? With Mystra "gone", would those rules on Time Travel even still apply post Spellplague?
Thank you Ed and THO for any insights you may provide.

I survived the Great OTTer Purge of 2013 and all I got was this stupid sig.

Hi again, all!
Joran, Ed has your questions and is working on dodging NDAs to give you whatever lore replies he can. Thus far, this tiny smidgin has squirted out:

The name of Red Knight's pegasus mount seen in THE GRAND HISTORY OF THE REALMS is Valorvyr.


So saith Ed. Who will provide more as he can, he promises. I can add this much: yes, Red Knight and Torm ARE close friends, and often work together. (I can't go so far as to venture opinions on romance. By "close" friends, I mean deep and many-times-proven mutual trust, the ease of being completely open and candid, and caring for each other's feelings, aims, views, and preferences.)
love to all,

So Red Knight and Torm would more likely be FWBs?

Ed, I've been thinking about Azoun a bit lately, and I dug up this old post of mine from another discussion:

There are two things about Azoun's children that has always vexed me for some reason. First is the illegitimate vs legitimate thing. I don't like those terms at all! He's their father, whether or not some priest has said some mumbo-jumbo to him and his child's mother in a ceremony, and using different terms for his children depending on which group they fall into makes me snarl.
The second thing is related. Azoun merrily goes around fathering children and then has nothing to do with their upbringing. Oh well, I guess I just can't stand irresponsible parents.


What is your opinion on how he treats his many children? I think that if I was one of his kids whose mother was a farmer I would be rather bitter about how my dad sired me and then never got involved in my life, and how my sisters are princesses and "legitimate", whereas I am not simply because a priest didn't babble some nonsense in front of my father and my mother (I'm talking about marriage, obviously).

Hi again, all.
khorne, the "legitimate" versus "illegitimate" label is entirely a political thing, that heralds and nobles pay great attention to, courtiers seek advice about, and everyone else pretty much ignores. It's purely "is this offspring in the line of succession to the Dragon Throne, and if so, where?" (So if the immediate Obarskyr royal family are all killed or held captive, and someone is looking to put a replacement on the throne, where does this person "stand" in the eyes of the nobles and heralds (older bastards before younger, of course, but my point is, that's the game being played here . . . and NOT by Azoun or Filfaeril. Tanalasta might well play it, but not Alusair.

As for "nothing to do with their upbringing," that's not always true. Azoun has some offspring he doesn't even know of the existence of, and therefore, yes, he has nothing to do with their upbringing except in the distant sense of being the "guy who sets the laws and tone of the country they're born and raised in" (there's no evidence at all of Azoun tomcatting outside Cormyr).
However, Ed has during Realmsplay featured many, many illegitimate offspring of Azoun that he knows about, has quietly sponsored as apprentices or given jobs to, introduced to possible employers, sent rescuers after when they got into trouble in Sembia and the Dales, and so on. He DOES (through agents and courtiers) keep an eye on his offspring, but "is a part of their lives" only as much as they want him to be (or, when they're young, their mothers/parents want him to be). There ARE bastards who are happily employed as courtiers in the Royal Court or the Royal Palace, that Azoun sees either daily or often (at least, in Ed's "home" realms there are, and except when stated otherwise in print, the published Realms match Ed's Realms).
However, your questions are (heh; forgive me) legitimate ones, and off they go to Ed for proper answers.
love,
THO

Oh, one thing I forgot to mention: we get glimpses of some of Azoun's at-court and prominent bastard offspring in (a pair, I believe) of Ed's later Realmslore columns.

Here's all of Ed's Realmslore Archive. The second one from the top, Azoun's Offspring is the one you're talking about, I believe: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/archfr/rl
I was always rather disappointed that story didn't continue - it was really interesting.
But I also have a few questions, brought about by reading The Last MYthal Trilogy recently:
First of all, what would happen to demi-planes in the wake of the Spellplague, especially demi-planes such as Sildeyuir?
Second, what composes Myth Drannor's mythal after the Crusade and the Spellplague? The Tree of Souls, the original mythal, or both? And can we have a more detailed description of the Mythal after the Spellplague? FRCG didn't give that many details.
Lastly, what would generally happen to mythals in the Spellplague? FRCG happens what happens to specific Mythals (Everska's, Silverymoon's) but is there some template for dealing with mythals after the Spellplague, or is it completely random?

"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.

Very interesting! Here's a question that perhaps has been answered elsewhere, though I've never heard anything on the matter and no DM I've spoken to could answer it for me. Why is she known as Red Knight when the other deities are known by actual names? Was this set up by the gods, or is it something that she personally wanted to have done? Also, was she known as the Red Knight by those that followed her to Myth Rhynn to confront the creatures that come forth there, or did they know her by an actual name or another title? And my book is away from me just now, so I'm not certain if it was Myth Rhynn or another Myth city. Thank you for what's been divulged thus far!!

In this case, "What If Cyric Killed Mystra?"
The 'What If' series of marvel was one of my very favorites - the one where Wolverine became Lord of the Vampires rocked.

Star Trek worked for me, so did Galactica - BG doesn't surprise me (except in how darn good it was), because I never cared for the original overmuch, but I was surprised that I liked the New ST continuity - it was hot, and the old girl need a good kick in it's franchise-arse.

And now a question so I don't get in trouble: What novel/stories is Ed working on ATM? That may seem like a stupid question to some, but I haven't been around much I don't really know whats going on in the book dept. I'm currently reading The Mists of Avalon, and although it is excellent, I'm really craving some FR goodness right about now.

I second that opinion on that storyline, Menelvagor... and I second your asked questions, as well. Apart from that, just waiting patiently for (hopefully) something on Myth Unnohyr, and (more hopefully) release of the Cormyr Lineage for publication. For now, I think that I've asked the questions that have come to my mind, and I'm just waiting for NDAs to expire or be made obsolete.

That being said, some hints as to clues in published sources regarding the "great secret of the Realms" and the Chosen of Mystryl would be really, really cool...

Okay, I'm done pestering.

Hi again, all.

Menelvagor, the answer to your last question about mythals (template re. Spellplague effects, or completely random) is: completely random. Ed and I have talked about this, and the Spellplague (although it definitely brought down the Weave) had "utterly random" effects, leaving some spells, magic items, and people untouched, destroying others, and "affecting" most of both (that is: changing them in varying ways).
Myth Drannor's mythal was already decaying, and Ed has said that the Spellplague affected various "spots" (locations in the city) and properties (powers of the mythal) differently than it affected other spots or properties of the same mythal.

Markustay: Hi! Visit often; be welcome!
Ed is hard at work on the second Elminster novel, presumably Book 2 of "The Sage of shadowdale" (being as ELMINSTER MUST DIE! that's coming out this August at Gencon, is described in the WotC catalogue as Book 1). The Prologue and first two chapters of EL M D! were just published in the back pages of CIRCLE OF SKULLS by James P. Davis, the sixth "Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep" standalone novel, and from them we know that EL M D! is set in the spring of the first year of the 4e Realms [the Year of the Ageless One].
The Davis novel is a mass market paperback (and a great "dark" yarn, BTW), and I believe both of the Ed Elminster novels I've mentioned here will be released first as hardcovers.
From the hints Ed has passed through me to post here for scribes, I'm become very excited about ELMINSTER MUST DIE! and, as they say, can't wait (but must! Grrrr!).
love to all,
THO

"Elminster must Die", I like it
Reminds me of some truly horrid FR campaigns I've been privy to.

Thanx for the quick response - I just hope his antagonists aren't half as brain-dead as some real-life people I've heard take up that mantra.

Anyhow, looks like another 4e novel I will have to read... not that I mind... time heals all wounds.

Heya,

The questions about "illegitimate" children (which I've always taken to mean as born on the other side of the sheets, aka born out of wedlock), has inspired another one.

In Suzail, two merchants have an ongoing relationship that produces several children, but they never marry. After one or both dies, how would inheritance work in that case, and is this situation common at all in Cormyr?

ETA (Edited to Ask): Also, are there any male nobles in Cormyr pre-Spellplague who have taken a leaf out of Azoun's book and fathered many children outside their marriages? How are they viewed by society at large?

As the spell ends, you look up into the sky to see the sun blazing overhead like noon in a desert. Then something else in the sky catches your attention. Turning your gaze, you see a tawny furred kitten bounding across the sky towards the new sun. Her eyes glint a mischevious green as she pounces on it as if it were nothing but a colossal ball of golden yarn. With quick strokes of her paws, it is batted across the sky, back and forth. Then with a wink the kitten and the sun disappear, leaving the citizens of Elversult gazing up with amazed expressions that quickly turn into chortles and mirth.

The Sunlord left Elversult the same day in humilitation, and was never heard from again.

I'll jump at the chance, 'cause we're on Cormyr topic.
Is Brace Skatterhawk Azoun IV's son? And is something clear known about his relationship with Alusair (more than it was implied in C:aN?)

SiNafay Vrinn, the daughter of Lloth, from Ched Nasad!
