So, because it's Ed, I decided to give Elminster Must Die a chance, and learned that Mystra, though weak, is still alive. Wonderful! Hallelujah!

If I interpreted correctly, does that mean that they're finally starting to fix one of the worst mistakes ever made in the realms?

If this is true, I feel a whole lot better about Spellplague itself, but still have my gripes about fourth edition Faerun.

Redwall. Drizzt. Kentucky. Enough said.

I was weaned on 2E Baldur's Gate. Learned 3.5E, and can't stand 4E WoF. (Though I try not to mess up canon too badly).

Read Bury Elminster Deep for more info...

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Perhaps. Even if true, it's one mistake fixed and tons yet remaining IMO.

"The very best possible post-fourteenth-century Realms lets down those who love the specific, detailed social, political and magical situation, with its thousands of characters, developed over forty years, and want to learn more about it; and those who'd be open to a new one with equal depth, which there just isn't time to re-produce; and those repelled, some past the point of no return, by the bad-taste-and-plausibility gap of things done to the world when its guardianship was less careful."

I would not call it "fixing a mistake." When they killed Mystra, I wasn't bothered; and that's not because I am usually apathetic to the fate of the gods. I just knew they wouldn't keep her dead for long. A plethora of things could have gone wrong if they did.

Every beginning has an end.

Yah of the whole deities they could and have killed, Mystra is the most obvious one to return, the only thing that stays veiled is when...
