Ooh. Vintage suppressed Realmslore. You made me open the box.

Oooohh!! *giggles giddily* I just might have to look him up again.

@ MrM: that sounds curiously like the supposed link between Britain and her Kings/Queens. Arthurian lore, in particular.

Ed sure depicts Bane well in The Temptation of Elminster even if it was Mystra impersonating him. Out of this I have a question:
Does Ed see the Gods caring if they impersonate one another for their own gain? It was considered pretty serious in Prince of Lies (which I know Ed did not author) so I'd be thrilled with Ed's insight into this area.

Hi again, all.
Housekeeping time again.
Meaning: a cluster of brief replies to various scribes.

First, to The Sage and Wooly, who should come first because they're our hardworking moderators and should get SOME perks to go with all the grief:
Yes, Ed always envisaged it as a Celtic harp, from the beginning.

Azuth, the gods care VERY MUCH about anyone impersonating them. It's almost "the ultimate sin," something that any god will understand as "rightfully" enraging another god. It's almost "Not Done" (Ed says "almost" because of course some gods have done it, but it's the best way to get yourself quickly mistrusted, feared, hated, or shunned by your fellow deities. Who will soon refuse to play with you, or as Mr. Lowder used to (beautifully) put it, "join in their reindeer games."

Mr_Miscellany, Ed tells me your query about a connection between the people and the land of Cormyr (which Alystra Illianniis quite rightly reminds us evokes the Arthurian link between Britain and its royalty) is dangerously NDA. Which of course should tell you that you're on to something.

Alisttair, Ed tells me that Rauglothgor retained the same lair as a dracolich as he did in life, and his usual "hunting grounds" when alive were up the Thunder Peaks into the Border Forest and then beyond, in a circle east over Thar and thence home again, and down the Thunder Peaks to coastal western rural Sembia and across the Neck (narrows between the Lake of Dragons and the rest of the Sea of Fallen Stars) to Starmantle and the hills and mountains south of that.

Alisttair, Ed also tells me that French Toast IS known and eaten in the Realms, but called "eggfry bread." He further notes that it is NEVER a sweet (a dessert), and certainly is never made with cinammon as in many American kitchens, but is a savory, eaten with gravy, panfry drippings, and spicy sauces like tamarind sauces (the Realmsian equivalents of real-world steak sauces, barbeque sauces, and ketchup). Wayfarers on the road, and caravan merchants, have been known to eat eggfry bread with molasses, and even enjoy it, but it's regarded as "roughing it" or "desperation fare," not a preferred or "proper" way to consume eggfrybread. The "classic" Realmsian way to enjoy eggfrybread is to make it in the fat of, and eat it with, thin slices of pork or salt pork or pork hocks or "cracklings" (rendered-down pork fat or, in modern real-world parlance, "pork rind").

So there you (all) have it. More soon!
love,
THO

Heh. REAL soon, as it happens. An e-mail just arrived from Ed, answering two more of Alisttair's queries. So here we go . . .

"Regarding Fzoul, did you ever envision him rising so high the way he has (up to Chosen in 3E and Exarch in 4E), or did he prefer the High Imperceptor of Bane as the big bad guy servant of Bane? Or was he envisioned more as secondary to Manshoon?"

Ed replies:

I created all three of these individuals, but never saw Fzoul as subtle enough to rise above being Manshoon's sidekick unless he got lucky - - and he did. The High Imperceptor was a jaded, decadent, doomed man from the start (the start being my conception of him), but it remained to be seen if the ever-ambitious Manshoon would either overreach himself (as he did), or foresee that it might be wiser to let Fzoul "beat him" and leave one of his lesser clones as Fzoul's subservient, non-trusted underling while he operated undercover from outside the Zhentarim (which he also did). :}


"Of the tunnels of the Underdark below the Twisted Tower, some are detailed in the Shadowdale adventure of the 2E CS, and more detailed in the City of the Spider Queen adventure. Do you have more extensive maps of these tunnels, and are there any unpulished locales of note within these caverns?"

Ed replies:

Oh, yes; I have VERY extensive unpublished maps of that area of the Underdark, both just below the surface and a layer deeper. Yes, there are indeed unpublished locales of note. However, both maps and locales are NDA right now. Sorry.



So there you have it, Alisttair. Ed promises (something) more tomorrow.
love,
THO

Oh, and I forgot to add that yes, Wooly, Ed confirms I was right about the harp being the symbol because Ed "saw" it in use, in his first mental picture of any of the Seven Sisters (one harping in the woods, second comes along, they get attacked, etc.; I believe I posted about that mental picture here at the Keep, in the past, not just a few posts above this one).

Thank you, Ed, and thank you, my Lady. I had thought it might be because the music of a harp reminded him of your voice.

Ah, my thanks, Ed and my lovely lady. One further ask:- Did Ed actually specifically envision one of the Seven, or was that image still somewhat vague? I'm only asking, because your previous posts didn't exactly cover this...

Hello Ed,

In your realms, what undead feel actual pain from physical injuries more so than magical damage, any expanded answer is awesome.

An example-If a large rock fell on a ghouls lower half, would it be in actual pain?

If Ed Greenwood or THO would be as so kind to me and the gods smile upon me favoribly, I would like to ask a question regarding the vampires of Faerun: I have been having trouble lately finding any information on the vampires that inhabit Faerun. I would like to create a vampire PC, but I cannot seem to find any "true" vampire sources such as the making of a vampire PC and where they tend to live, such as: is there a city of vampires soley, or any places of which they mass together?

Thank you in advance for even reading this.

I second two latest questions, as I love vampires, especially drow vampires. So, I ask, is anything known about the fate of Shyntlara Auvryndar? Or, if it's NDA, anything about her past... that's not in DDGtU?

I have a quick question about names... Why is the Realmsian God of War called "Tempus"? I've always asked myself about it, and after the answer about Arabel I thought probably Ed has some good reason for so naming the Lord of Battles.

Thanks for the plethora of replies Ed and Lady THO!

I have a hypothetical question now.

Would post spellplague magic work in a pre-spellplague dead magic zone, since it's effectively independent of the weave and dead magic is a tear in the weave?? I may recall that technically it wouldn't work even with Time Travel (as a travelling wizard would switch to the timeframe's way of casting spells IIRC??), but would/could there be a way to do so anyways?

If the Realms ever get translated into Swedish, the translator would be very miffed to find a war-god called Fred, let me tell you. (It means peace in this part of the world.)

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

Actually Fred is the shortened version of Frederick, which means "peaceful ruler"... Good choice, Wooly!

My question is because "Tempus" means "time" in latin (tempo, in portuguese). Is there any special reason for this choice?

I had always assumed that it was the 'sound' of the name, rather than the etymology. Tempus sounds like 'Tempest', which is what a battle looks like from far above, where the gods watch it.

I'll just chime in on this: was the "Tempos" alternative in Icewind Dale (yes, I know Ed didn't write it) just a typo - later corrected, or did Ed have a say in that variance? It's pretty easy to explain away a previous "created" diety (Gwaeron Windstrom, for example) as an "aspect" of Mielikki, which Drizzt worshipped in later novels. The problem I have, and thus my second question in one post to Ed - greedy me - is that aspects seem like an area where to gods might work together. For example, if someone worshiped nature and sea storms, Umberlee and Chauntea might form an "aspect diety" (whom we'll call "Fluff") so that this hypothetical character is really worshipping them both. In other words, if someone decided that none of the gods of the Pantheon worked for her, would she be able to "create" an aspect deity? Final question - egads, three! - for Ed. There is a character and a deity named Torm. Would it be common practice to name your child after a diety, and are there implications if you do? I can't imagine many people seeking to name their child "Loviatar" if that were the case, despite the fact that phonetically, it's a pleasant sound.

Thanks for the triple-header.

This brings another question to me then (from Azuth's sig.):

Who was the final Magister, and what happened to him/her during the spellplague?

(something tells me this is NDA lol - would make for a nice campaign arc for a PC to become the last Magister....hmmm Paragon Path idea here...)

A question just popped into my head while browsing another thread: To what extent is it correct to continue to refer to an ancient undead as 'he' or 'she' rather than 'it'? Using Larloch or Aumvor as examples; they have been undead for far longer than they were ever alive at this point, and have (one assumes) lost all interest in the procreative act, as well as the ability to engage in it. Their drives and desires are not really mortal in any sense anymore; and yet we know that Aumvor wants Laeral for his 'bride'. Would these ancient undead be offended in referring to them as 'it', or would they likely not notice? Obviously with others (Ioulam springs to mind) they have changed their forms to such an extent that not only are they not gendered, they aren't even vaguely humanoid any longer. Or is this (as I suspect) a case of personalities, where Larloch might be bemused by a mortal calling him 'it', Aumvor might destroy the same mortal for offending his 'manhood'? Are there liches (or other ancient, once-human creatures) that have preferred or insisted on being referred to this way?

Odd question, I know, but I wondered if Ed had ever addressed this in his home game or unpublished writings.
