Thank you -- both THO and Ed!! One down, 325 to go eh? Masters at the Art teasing you both are to be sure! :-)

Seriously, I had hoped my query wouldn't have to have been, ahh shall we say, so complicated. So I really appreciate Ed's efforts here.

Happy Continued Holidays to him! And to you, and every scribe here, Happy New Year THO!!

BTW, is there a unique Realms equivalent to Happy New Year?

Best to All,
Rich...

THO,

It's been awhile since I've posted, thanks to IRL and whatnot. Way back in late August of 2010, I submitted a proposed rough map of Loudwater to you, circa 1370, based on notes from you and Ed. I know there's been a lot of water under the bridge since then, but I was wondering if I could re-send it to you now for notes/corrections, with an eye toward getting it close enough to accuracy for more precise notes from Ed, and eventually making it available to the lore-hungry of Candlekeep. This still seems needful, given that (to my knowledge) there is still no accurate map of Loudwater extant...

Mother may I? ;)

Cheers,

Karth

I have a couple of queries for Ed, both regarding affairs in the Realms in the 1360s DR.

First: how likely is it that a group of Malarites - many of whom are werewolves - would have been able to avoid notice in the Sunset Vale, or at least evade notice enough that nobody's tried sweeping them out of the area?

Second: is it feasible to add a minor noble house to Waterdeep's collection of nobility, and how would the nobles react to the heir of the house having a half-elven daughter, even if she is not first in line to inherit? Would assassination attempts be likely, and if so, which houses does Ed consider most rabidly anti-elven and willing to go to such lengths? Ditto any elven groups/individuals who'd be less than pleased at an elf/human marriage?

Thanking you in advance, and a belated Merry Christmas to Lord Ed and Lady THO!



regarding the second question, check out "Elminster's Forgotten Realms". They specifically explore the addition of new noble houses in Waterdeep in the time period mentioned. It should be noted that prior to the spellplague and after the spellplague, this varies.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

A question about a Lord of Zhentil Keep:

Lord Phandymm. We know he is a "secret" priest of Bane, and one that backed Fzoul in taking power in Zhentil Keep away from the High Imperceptor...but really there is little else known about this man. I don't know if I've missed a source (I have a vague and hazy recall of something to do with Realms of Infamy)...but I don't even know if my mind's eye describes him right!

What does he look like? What would cause a Priest of Bane to be so secretive in a city dominated by Bane's clergy? What makes this man get up in the morning?

Thanks for anything you have to offer!

Well met

Could I please ask that my fellow scribes refrain from posting any more requests for lore to Ed and THO as this scroll will soon be sealed [this then allows THO to better synchronise the crossover into the upcoming 2013 scroll]? You may soon resume your requests in the 2013 scroll which I will open shortly.

Thank you.

Hi again, all!
Karth, I know Ed has a map of (the later, more populous = 1360s DR or so) Loudwater, because I've seen it. His usual style (like the maps published in the FR ADVENTURES 2e hardcover tome).
However, we'd love to see yours. How about wait until after the New Year bows in (say, the 2nd of January, or later), and then PM me? That should give me a chance to clear out my PM inbox enough to accept messages again.
Yes, I've been a bad girl (anyone surprised at that? No? )
love,
THO

Hi again, all.
Dalor Darden, I know Ed is slaving away at the keyboard right now, trying to get caught up, but from my admittedly sketchy notes from Realmsplay, I can tell you this about Lord Phandymm: a big (burly, broad-shouldered, like a football player with full padding on, except of course in his case, it's all him) man with fat cheeks and a double chin, going bald. Pale white-skinned, green eyes, big fat strong fingers. Says little, speaks in a pleasant, honeyed, deep voice. A landlord and investor in Zhentil Keep, drawing income from almost two hundred small businesses he supports (mainly shopkeepers and crafters, but also a few caravan shipping and warehousing concerns). Deals in spirits, wines, poisons, and unguents (medicinal ointments), habitually evading most taxes by misstating what's in which cask to pay a lower tax rate. Secretly sponsors and supports LOCAL clergy of Bane, hence his siding with Fzoul over the High Imperceptor. Often leery of early Zhent tactics because he thought other cities would arm and ride against Zhentil Keep as a threat perceived to be too grave to let lie, but never a foe of the Network. (He spoke against them at Council because he thought what they were trying was a dangerous, foolish "rocking of the boat" of local power, done out of impatience when it could have been done more slowly and with subtlety and made fewer enemies/engendered less local fear.) He still believes this, but Manshoon sees him rightly as disagreeing over ways and means, not aims and end goals.
He is one of the few Keep inhabitants Manshoon likes, because Phandymm puts himself first, the welfare of the city second, and the Brotherhood (the Zhentarim) third, and is thoughtful and wary (and therefore, to Manshoon, predictable).
And I'm afraid that's all I've got. For more, we'll have to wait for Ed.
love,
THO

And hi again, everyone. I just received an e-mail from Ed, re. this, from xaeyruudh: "Happy holidays to all!
Adding a quick query to the pile of uh... Christmas presents, yes we're so generous ... for Ed:
In FR16, there's a settlement named Bachlacis somewhere in the Durpar/Var/Estagund collective. It's listed as the "home base" of the Rawnpore chaka, on the list of 31 on the back inside cover, but it doesn't seem to have gotten onto any of the maps. My question is: is this one of your towns, or was it an invention of that book's author?"

Ed replies:


Bachlacis isn't my creation. (Nor is the Rawnpore chaka.)


So saith Ed. More housekeeping to come, as I see ANOTHER e-mail from Ed has just popped into my inbox.
love to all,
THO

And with that being the case, and since Australia has now entered 2013, please be aware that this scroll will now be closing, with Ed's Realmslore answers and The Hooded One's grace and charm starting fresh in a new scroll for 2013.

Casts Seal Scroll.

You should know by now, Wooly, that Australia doesn't fall under SageTime, so it's passage through the continuum remains unfettered by my meddling.

Well, then, how is it that SageTime never applies to you, when it's New Year's Eve?

Did you ever see the finale for Star Trek: The Next Generation? If so, then Picard and Data's rationale over the nature of Anti-Time in that episode should be enough to answer your question.

Ah. Okay. I'll see if I can find a YouTube clip with the appropriate section I'm thinking of. That'll clear things up.

Which is strange for me... considering I'm hardly ever a realist when it comes to matters of SageTime.
