You posted one original post. How is that better?

Man, the Sage is off his game, tonight -- I just remembered to check for the new Realmslore, and still beat him! Here it is:

I'd been inadvertently forced off-line for about twenty-four hours, actually, so it wasn't through a lack of trying to post the link, I can assure you.

So I am once more beating the Sage to the punch!

This week's lore from Ed is an area description, The Lost Triarchy of Scorune

I'm convinced now that you're conspiring with my immediate superiors at work, Wooly.

Because he's now chosen to schedule our weekly project meetings every Tuesday, at 12:45 pm, which means I'll probably be missing the next couple of updates for Ed's column.

That's what you get for all of those times you've taken advantage of being several timezones ahead!

Ed's latest article is now available:- Hulther’s Mimics.

And I'm back in front, it seems, with posting the links.

I still got the hat trick. I'll not accidently mess up the link week... That cost me precious seconds!

The Furry Hamster will likely employ the flimsy excuse that it's almost a day late, but the Sage never misses a bump in ANY timeline.

Find here, Ed's latest:- Sinister Citizens of Kormul.

Haha!

Really? What about February 18th and 26th?

Or is not missing bumps in any timeline the reason you never get anything done?

All this Kormul lore is brilliant. What an awesome and dangerous place to adventure.

Today's lore from Ed brings us more places to explore!

Hidden Holds of the Realms

It also brings me the opportunity to snipe the Sage with the posting of Edlore, too.

I was actually offline for most of yesterday, and a little of today as well, so I kind of missed this one.

No worries, somewhere, someplace in another reality, there is a Sage who gets everything done early!

At least the things he remembers that is

I kinda spaced that night, too -- so if you'd been online, you'd've easily gotten it posted before I remembered.

Hmmm. Sages of Multiple Earths?

Oh, that would make things so much easier.

Strangely enough, I'd forgotten anyway. So even if I were online, I don't think I'd have remembered about the link.

More offline troubles, I'm afraid, so I missed this one too.

Cool, it's like the realms version of the survival knife craze after Rambo First Blood

I wonder what happened to mine?

Not Thar, now i have to go back and rework all my homebrew ideas around Iyrauroth and Vorbyx.

But despite that, i'm glad old realms are getting some love once again, i only scanned it but im sure i saw the date 322 DR which means its pre spell plague, yay.

Well I've read the Thar article and it's awesome and I thank my lucky stars that Ed didn't invalidate any of my ideas for Thar.

In fact I notice his date of 451 DR for the destruction of the ogre kingdom of Thar matches a date I randomly picked in my thread about Thar.

Maybe an idea of mine made it into the realms, and maybe it was complete coincidence. Either way I'm a happy, happy man.

I had project meetings all day yesterday, again, and always, it seems, on a Tuesday.

Frustrated Sage!

I'll get you next time, Wooly. Next time. Hahahaha!
