Depends if in Ed's campaign if there is an illusion covering the surface of the moon.

What I'm curious about is what do they farm and if any of those products appear in Toril's markets?

And in Post-Spellplague the illusion has been gone for 100 years, so when viewed from Toril you can rely on this quote from the Wailing Years article: "The surface of the moon, long presented to us mortals as a barren landscape of craters and lifeless valleys, now revealed to me majestic mountains and sprawling seas; itself alight with similar cobalt radiance."




I hope Candlekeep continues to be the friendly forum of fellow Realms-lovers that it has always been, as we all go through this together. If you don’t want to move to the “new” Realms, that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with either you or the “old” Realms. Goodness knows Candlekeep, and the hearts of its scribes, are both big enough to accommodate both. If we want them to be.

Enough for now. The Realms lives! I have spoken! Ale and light wines half price, served by a smiling Storm Silverhand fetchingly clad in thigh-high boots and naught else! Ahem . .
So saith Ed. <snip>

Hi again, all.
Hoondatha, here's my first fleeting attempt at a reply to your query: "Can you share some memories of how Shadowdale was when the Knights first arrived? When was their first visit, what was it like, who was in charge, how many wenches did Torm seduce, that sort of thing. I've got a pretty good idea of what was happening in the Dale, but less so of exactly when the Knights showed up, and when they started to take a serious interest in the place as opposed to just use it as a stop-over. I'd be interested in hearing as much as you care to share. Thanks, as always."

Here we go . . .
I’m “on assignment” just now, and will have to be brief as opposed to loquacious, but here’s the nutshell of the conditions in Shadowdale when we arrived:

There was an air of tension, and deep cynicism, among the folk of the dale, who were expecting to be overrun sometime soon by huge Zhentilar armies. For some seasons (after the death of Lord Aumry), the Zhents had made forays into the dale (including proclaiming Jyordhan as "Lord") but been kept from conquering it because the drow trading with certain unscrupulous human traders (in Sembia and Hillsfar and Cormyr) through their surface connection at (the ruins of) Castle Grimstead, just west of the dale, were occupying the Twisted Tower.
Whenever Zhents entered the Tower, the drow butchered them. Whenever Zhents tarried in Shadowdale overnight, drow emerged from the Underdark and slaughtered them.
In the midst of all this, Syluné and Elminster and Storm (plus the Harpers from all over the Realms shuttling to and from Storm’s farm, and also at times to Syluné’s Hut and Elminster’s tower) did their best to keep as many folk of Shadowdale alive as possible, and to eliminate any REALLY bold/strong drow AND Zhent forces.
Into this uneasy cauldron of beautiful forest and lurking death we Knights stepped, and had to fight our way into the “abandoned” (in truth, drow-infested) Tower and fight to hold it, while the folk of the dale watched us rather suspiciously. We befriended Jhaele and were made welcome at the Old Skull Inn, but everyone else held back warily. In part that was because of the behaviour of the Zhent “Lord of the Tower” who’d preceded us, in part that was due to the anticipation that our arrival would provoke the long-expected Zhent army attack (eventually, it did), and in part that was because the Dalefolk had a local problem: a werewolf in their midst (Lune Lyrohar; see the census in the Old Grey Box) that they were hoping we’d take care of; it was their “little test for us,’ and when we did eliminate her, but with regret and respect, we rose in the regard of the locals, and they STARTED to accept us. Florin attracted a lot of interest from local females (and didn’t exploit that - - but Torm DID exploit that, as you suspected).
I’ll have to grab enough time to sit and recollect before I can say much more; SO many adventures have happened since those early days in Shadowdale . . .
Great question. Thanks for asking it, and taking me back down memory lane . . .
love,
THO

Hi again, all.
A bit more Hoondatha, before I rush off again...
When we Knights first arrived in Shadowdale, there was "officially" (according to the Zhents, anyway) a (Zhent) Lord of Shadowdale, but in daily truth and practice, Jhaele had the most influence and her inn was the meeting-place and "court of public opinion" for local social matters, Sylune was the local "doctor," Storm and her Harpers were the local law enforcement, and Elminster was the "backup threat" they could reference but who hardly ever appeared.
So WE became the local law enforcement, being watched like hawks and judged by all. Right away. There was no "just use it as a stop-over" until much, much later, when Mourngrym was Lord, after Doust's retirement.

Bakra, they farm for local (lunar) consumption, but I know they export moon wine to Faerun; it's highly prized in Silverymoon and the Tashalar, and by elves everywhere.

Must go now.
until next,
love to all,
THO

Who was the zhent lord of Shadowdale at that time? Were they actually sending someone down during the time of no lords?

Heh. They sent dozens (perhaps scores) of Zhent-appointed "Lords" riding into the dale. Long before we arrived, the folk of Shadowdale took grim satisfaction in slaying those who didn't flee (a handful bolted on into Cormyr, seeing their doom but knowing they also had to leave the Brotherhood, change their names and appearances, and start new lives far from the Keep), and caravan-sending parts of them back to the Keep. It was their way of defying Manshoon's presumptuous "I'll conquer you soon, so I'll pretend I've conquered you already" behaviour.
Manshoon was apparently amused, and started using Shadowdale as a testing-ground for overly-ambitious Zhentilar.

So the "Time of no Lords" could more properly be titled "the time in which Manshoon kept appointing lords and the people of Shadowdale kept killing them" or "the time of a lot of dead lords?"

It could indeed. :}
However, as it's a period of time in Shadowdale, and from the POV of the folk of Shadowdale THEY had no lords (a "rightful" Lord of Shadowdale being someone who holds the Pendant of Ashaba, lives in the Tower of Ashaba, and fulfills all the duties of lordship, including governing the dale, serving as "justicar" [magistrate], organizing Dalefolk in all sorts of local everyday activities, providing aid and shelter when the need arises, etc.), they naturally call it the "Time of No Lords."
The Zhents don't refer to it at all.

Hi again, all.
I conveyed your post to Ed, Knight of the Gate, along with MY post (to make sure he didn't have any disagreements with what I said when speaking for him), and he says:

"Right on" in both cases. Both you and Knight of the Gate have put it very much as I would; we're all thinking of these deities in the same way.
Knight of the Gate, your suspicion is correct: a beloved of a warrior departing for war or away at war would pray to all the deities of war: Tempus that the fighting went well, Torm that the "right" cause or side (always, of course, the one the beloved's warrior is part of) prevailed thus far and will continue to prevail, and Helm that the warrior (and any he or she is charged to protect) survived unharmed, or in wounded, as lightly as possible. There would also be prayers to Lathander (renewal), Chauntea (natural vitality/cycle, therefore auspicious healing and endurance of diseases/taints that cause wounds to fester), Eldath (that water be pure, and free from disease, and that it cleanse, etc.) and so on (including to patron dieties of the clan/family/dwelling-place of the warrior, for the reasons you outlined: to bring the warrior back home [alive and unharmed if possible; failing that, as alive and as lightly harmed as possible; failing that, last message or token; failing that, honourable/meaningful death - - and above all, death - - that is, freedom from undeath, and a horrible undead existence]).
Venerations, for almost all beings in the Realms, is always a tapestry of pantheism, not monotheism. Aside from priests and paladins, very few individuals in the Realms are dedicated to a lone deity.
There is a very short popular "common prayer" made by those (even "civilians" forced to fight by circumstances) going to war/at war:

All divinity protect us,
Our own wits deliver us,
Our own strength defend us,
Our cause prevail!

There is also a very short popular 'common prayer' made by others on bhealf of those going to war/at war:

May the sun and the moon see (him/her/them) whole
May the strife go well
May it soon be ended
May all endings be bright in the long passage of years

Hope that helps.
Ed


So saith Ed, creator of the whole show, and still its busiest ringmaster.
love,
THO


I've been super-busy at work, so I just now got a chance to read this. I was reasonably certain that I had a good grasp on the Realmsian war-gods, but it's good to hear it from The Man! It's not at all coincidental that I came to those conclusions while serving in the military some years back, I suppose. Separately, the insight into prayers for those in harm's way is just 100% awesome Realmslore.
If I had my druthers, this thread would be 'Ed musing on the Divine'; of course, then we'd miss out on the details of life on the moon, or the best place to buy gloves in Daggerdale, or what the Knights were thinking when they.... Nonetheless, I would pay cash money for a massive 'Worship in the Realms' book, and I'm sad that various exigencies kept it from ever being written.

Onward, then; THO, I have a Knights-related question; namely, did the Knights from ever really abuse their power? (I'm not talking, here, about Pennae or Torm's light-fingeredness, but rather taking advantage of a situation in which they could have 'done good' to instead enrich or empower themselves). If so, details, please! If not, why?Was it the threat of the 'mighty ones' around them (Storm, Dove, El, et.al.) that would have done away with them, or was it more just that the individuals were innately altruistic? I ask b/c every party I've ever run has had a moment of weakness in which they (if only for a moment) stopped working for the greater good and decided that it was time to get theirs and throw morality to the wind to either gain something that they wanted or to eliminate someone that they hated.

In any case, thanks again for the above!

Hi again, all.
Knight, we have had moments of weakness, to be sure. Torm and sometimes Lanseril sometimes advocate exploiting what's easy pickings, especially from the Zhents or Red Wizards or other "bad" targets/potential victims. We tend to let Torm pilfer from evildoers. Yet here's the double key: some of our players run their characters as genuinely altruistic (Florin, Doust, Jhessail), and we ROLEPLAY all "war council" discussions within the party, always (and Ed encourages this). The Knights don't often "dungeon crawl" so much as we navigate subplots and endless intrigues, so we usually go into a situation with aims held high, rather than reacting to monster attacks and traps.
So we genuinely DO "stand up for good" (though we can be wrong about consequences and other individuals as often as the next guy), and doing so makes us feel better, and we enjoy that sort of play. In Ed's hands, the Realms is a fascinating place, and being as we can call on Harpers for food and shelter if we ever get really destitute, money is secondary to DOING things. Adventurers tend not to have much social status anyway, we aren't interested in bigger houses and kidney-shaped swimming pools because we're always on the move and because we tend to see them as stationary targets where we "know" a rich corrupt merchant can be found (lounging in HIS pool, I mean), so we're not all that interested in material things, except as means to ends. It doesn't hurt that we found some rich treasures early on and hid them well, and so can call on them if we have to . . .
love,
THO

Lady: could you ask Ed if he plans on publishing further tales of the Knights? I have always felt that The Sword that Never Sleeps was a great book, but it left unanswered the exact story of how Rathan and Torm joined the Knights. Since the books say "series" and not "trilogy" is seems that additional books could be published. If the exact answer is NDA, I'll take whatever answers Ed can skirt around. Many thanks!

I'm sure Ed would love to write a dozen 600-page novels about the Knights... What WotC wants to publish is a different story, though, and they're the ones who decide what does and does not see print.

Very much so. And Ed has covered this topic, somewhat, in previous replies.

A search of the "So Saith Ed" archive would -- specifically those concentrated on the Knights and their published adventures -- would be recommended.

Dear Ed and THO,

Would you be so kind and give us some background history on the following fallen Netherese enclaves? Who were the archwizards who ruled them? What was life like then? Did some of their inhabitants survive? If yes, where are they now?

There's so little information about them; and some, none at all:

Akinataer
Aquessir
Frenway
Hlaungadath
Jethaere
Juksidur
Lathery
Lhoada
Maunator
Nhalloth
Orbedal
Phylornel
Quesseer
Tith
Tilendrothael

And in Post-Spellplague the illusion has been gone for 100 years, so when viewed from Toril you can rely on this quote from the Wailing Years article: "The surface of the moon, long presented to us mortals as a barren landscape of craters and lifeless valleys, now revealed to me majestic mountains and sprawling seas; itself alight with similar cobalt radiance."



But is the article true in the current year(Post-Spellplague)? For the goddess Selûne's moon still/again seems to radiate silver light in 1479DR. So, has the illusion (I believe formerly a work of Leira?) been renewed or is it gone and the moon is a green-blue orb that for some reason radiates silver light?

The Selûnites were a paranoid bunch and feared that the People of Toril would one day attack them. Did the Spellplague/death of Leira affect their way of living? If they sell moon wine to Faerûn they seem to be less xenophobic now.
Their monarch, the elfqueen Alabaster would at least have had the opportunity to rule through the Spellplague and change society in a long term. But maybe the Selunites were affected by the Spellplague as well and had to change?
May it be that Ed could shed some light on the current Post- Spellplague-status of Selûne (as a moon), her Tears and the Selûnites? And maybe the planets encirceling Toril as well (might be useful for starpact warlocks)?

Tantam All!

With the upcoming royal nuptials in the UK, I was wondering if Ed or THO could share some lore about the recent Obarskyr weddings?


Are they 'full-on' pomp and ceremony for all folk of the Forest Country to see, or just a few select nobles?

Are all marriages carried out in the same building and how religious is the ceremony?

Wedding rings swapped? if so what are they made from and are they forged from the same mines for every wedding etc. Would the rings be enchanted?

Would the happy couple get a chance of a honeymoon? and if so where did Az and Fee get away to?

Any special ceremonies performed at every wedding, (rituals securing the couple to the Dragon Throne and the land perhaps?) out of sight of those present?

Away from the ceremony I assume a 'national holiday' would be celebrated? Are local lords obligated to lay on a feast for the villagers?

Any other lore on Rpyal wedding traditions and celebrations most welcome

Until swords part

Kind regards

Damian

So saith Ed. I've never said he was sane, have I?
Gods, all this writing and he's running a constant fantasy version of Coronation Street in his head, too. .

Hoo boy. Hi, Damian. My brain seems a bit fuzzy this morn, but here's what little I can remember (before Ed weighs in with a proper answer, of course):

"Yes" to pomp, rings, and honeymoon (always in a secret locale that standing legend insists is always far from Cormyr, but many Cormyreans suspect is usually/always closer to home).
Yes, it's a national holiday, and the King's lords lay on feasts in their various locales at which a Crown herald and a local War Wizard declaim the unfolding distant ceremony (the wizard working a large "farscry illusion" in the air above their platform, that shows the vows and royal kiss at the height/culmination of the ceremony).
I seem to remember that the venue and the "approach" (arrivals of bridal party and groom) can vary with each wedding, and approaches have included groom galloping up on horseback.
I definitely recall that multiple Wizards of War cast wards on the participants and all royals (and visiting heads of state, though these are rare) present, to prevent magical and archery attacks on them, and that they are also spell-protected against poison and with ironguard.
Yes, there are some private rituals that are part of the ceremony, but I can't recall anything at all about them, and don't think Ed has ever revealed much about them to us.
So off to him your post goes, to see what comes back . . .
(Be patient. He'll be heading into crunch time for the current Elminster novel, about now.)

I've a question for Ed prompted by Elminster at the Magefair.

Well, I guess more of a series of questions:

A. Just HOW did the key to one of El's closets wind up in, iirc a dragon's horde, in the first place?
B. Why did it take so very long for him to get it back?

Fantastic short story. It's always the first one I read when I figure out where my copy of Realms of Valour has hidden itself THIS time, but it leaves one curious of a few finer details. In fact, while on the subject... All that trouble over a closet, what happens if El loses the keys to his sock drawer?

Heh. I know the answer to your Question A is NDA, because that's been asked before at a GenCon seminar, and apparently a TSR editor asked Ed to write up a story about that, and he did, and . . . TSR is apparently sitting on it.
The B answer MIGHT be caught up in the NDA too, but I'm not sure. So off your post goes to Ed, to see what he'll cough up.
Oh, and about the sock drawer? El or Lhaeo would just knit new ones, or borrow some long dancers' stockings from Jhaele or "leg warmer" thingies from Storm.
If it was his underwear drawer, he'd just go commando.
How do I know these things?
I asked.
Years back.
No, really. (Yes, I AM that sort of a girl.)

In regards to the Cormyrian Weddings question above, I'd imagine the tradition of available women wearing purple ribbons would feature quite prominently about the taverns and festhalls? (And the best man would be a cat)!

Many thanks for the very quick response most gracious lady. I can wait patiently for anything else Ed would like to add.

As an aside when is the next El book due out and can you give us any teasers of other novels on the way from Ed whether in the Realms or not?

Kindest regards

Damian

So saith Ed. I've never said he was sane, have I?
Gods, all this writing and he's running a constant fantasy version of Coronation Street in his head, too. .
shudder,
love to all,
