When I saw the title 'Quelzard, Patron of Adventurers' I thought, for a moment, that this was a newly revealed demigod or Issek-like cult/scam. Anyone else read it that way? Pretty good idea.

I didn't read it that way. But now that you mention it I can see how that's possible. That's awesome.

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

I initially thought it might have been some new intriguing cult, actually. A scam running to catch foolish young adventures cutting their teeth for the first time on hopes of "high adventures."

I like the demigod angle, though. That deserves further development.

This week's "Forging the Realms" brings up an interesting noble of Cormyr in the form of Lord Crakehall.

In terms of my own Realms, Ed's answer for this week's column largely mirrors my thinking on the subject:- How Many Hidden Cults Is Too Many?

The first article in this series was the original article linked in Jeremy Grenemyer's opening post for this scroll. I've since linked to each and every article release from that time.

It's incredibly uplifting for me to read that my own process of writing NPC's into my Realms often mirrors that of Ed's own workings, as per the latest "Forging the Realms" article:- Elkaskyn Horncastle.

This week's "Forging the Realms" offers some interesting Realms-based financial insights:- Noble Investments.

I liked the Elkaskyn Horncastle and Noble Investments one. In fact, I really liked the Noble Investments one for a more real world reason. If you portray the nobles of the realms as instead the well off investors/small businessmen of America, you can see the similarities of how they help shape the world economy so much more than the government giving out allocations. It behooves the realms to have nobles, and those nobles who are wise prosper... those that aren't, fail. Failure can be a good thing, one it seems the kings of the realms understand.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Ed really has been giving my favourite Realms race a lot of love, lately, and this continues with his latest foray into "Forging the Realms" -- Imroad Gaskulyn.

Ed's latest sojourn into the territory of rarely-covered Realmslore features a rather odd topic... The Stench Carts.

There's one in every good campaign, and Ed explores the theme in his latest "Forging the Realms" with The Talkative Tavernmaster.
