Heh. I've played games on tables, yes. Sometimes even involving cards or dice or boards.
Seriously, now . . . thank you for the kind words, Caladan Brood. I dragged Ed into doing this, way back then, and we both love doing it. Ed has shared a staggering amount of lore over the years, and I have enjoyed being a rather saucy messenger, his Lady Herald . . . and I hope we can continue to do so for a long time to come, and that you and others enjoy the Realms and the camaraderie at Candlekeep for even longer.
Keep those questions coming!
love,
THO

Hello again THO and ED, I have less of a question and more a curiosity of opinion. I have just read James Wyatts latest article "Big Beasts" where he discuses dinosaurs. (I have always loved dinosaurs in chult) But he talked about how he gave new names to different dinosaurs, like "Clawfoot" for the velociraptor and "Hammertail" for the Ankylosaurus. Do you personally imagine the people of the realms doing something like this, or would you see them simply call them the larger complicated names the scholars coined. :)

Something that came up over at the Paizo messageboards that Ed as a veteran gamer might be able to answer:

quote:
I recently bought a set of three of these from EBay:
Special Edition TSR Dice

The seller has had them for a few years and had purchased them originally from Ebay as well, so wasn't sure of their origins. I can't seem to find anything on Google...

They are about 2" D6 dice with the TSR logo in the location of the 1. Has anyone seen these before or know where they originated (I'm assuming a con of some sort). I purchased only the dice, the treasure-chest like box this one is in was something I picked up to display them.

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

Hello again, all.

Kajehase, Ed and I both remember those dice as being GenCon "giveaways" from years back, in the Milwaukee era (one d6 in a tiny sealed plastic baggie, presumably factory-bagged to guard against blemishing), and Ed thinks he has one . . . SOMEwhere.

lordsknight185, dinosaurs haven't played a large part in our home Realms games because of the locales we Knights maraudedXXX er, flourished in, but several Waterdhavian nobles have individual dinosaurs imprisoned in their in-mansion, heated menageries. YES, dinosaurs in the Realms have the sort of names James mentions, not the real-world scientific or general-use colloquial names. After all, how would someone from Faerűn know this is a "Tyrannosaurus Rex" and that is a "Stegosaurus"?
The only dinosaurs I recall us fighting in the wild were Pterosaurs and several aggressive Triceratops . . .

love to all,
THO

Ed, how do Druids and 'Nature Clerics' get along in the Realms? In general, I mean. I realize this is one of those case-by-case basis situations, but I would think there should be some sort of stereotypical attitude (like how Wizards feel about priests).

Ed and THO, are there any active volcanoes and active tectonic areas for earthquakes in the Realms, maybe even in Zakhara and Kara-Tur?

Perhaps I should have been more specific. Aside from the known ones (Mount Hotenow, Ship of the Gods, Smoking Mountains), are there any others that are active or even semi-active? I wrote a trilogy of adventures several years ago for Greyhawk, and with a new gaming party and exclusively running the Realms now, I am looking for a place to place them...if not just to have a reason to introduce my lava-riders.

Greetings to Ed and the lovely Lady Hooded One,

The Sage returns with Yet Another Question for his growing queue of queries for the Great Bearded One.

I was [yesterday] reading an article on death masks -- in particular, the sale at auction of a particular Napoleon death mask -- when I began pondering what similar artifacts may be like in the Realms.

I recall a few references in previous lore, but what I'd really like to know, is whether you've ever brought up anything like this in your home Realms campaigns? Are there any death masks of famous NPCs you've discovered in your games? And, if so, who were they made from? Are any of them ensorcelled, or do they have strange magical effects cast on them?

Really, I'm just curious about death masks in general with respect to the Realms.

Much appreciation, as always, in advance.

And Sage's question has spurred a line of reasoning of my own, and a related question:

I am sure Ed is at least somewhat familiar with the premise of Warehouse 13 (and I make this assumption because I almost never watch it, and am familiar with it). For those who are not, 'artifacts' are spontaneously created by some legendary figure or important historical event. This isn't all that different from how artifacts (and relics, and perhaps ancestral items, etc) in D&D are created, and IIRC, there are at least a few 'accidental' artifacts floating around out there (Vecna's body-parts jump to mind).

Does this happen in The Realms? Are there objects that have somehow developed their own 'magic' because of the personages or events involved? Are there any of note you'd like to share?

Hi again, all.
Traveling and in a rush, so just two quick "sorta" replies:
Sage, there are indeed death masks in the Realms, and we Knights have found some on the corpses of buried wizards in "dungeons," over the years. Most of those, legend has it, bear curses - - but all I can tell you for sure is that some of them bore written messages on their inside (face-side) surfaces, that when touched emitted the voice of the deceased, saying something memorable or important (Torm always hoped the little speeches would be detailed directions to cached treasure, but the ones we came across were always "quotable quotes" about life, the Realms, and . . .).
Ed will furnish a proper reply, of course, when he can (he's back to being the world's busiest man, right now).
Markustay, Ed is indeed somewhat familiar, and artifacts have always been created in that manner (as well as being deliberately created) in the Realms; one of Ed's original (1966) short stories, from before the setting was anything more than "the Sword Coast," revolves around Mirt stumbling onto such an artifact. More to come, of course, from Ed . . .
Gotta run; plane's boarding . . .
love,
THO

Hello Ed and THO,

My latest query is about Randal Morn and the Cormaerils.

Over here in the Uk there are some interesting changes going on in the noble classes with Royal succession soon changing to simply the first-born (rather than the first-born male) heir. This may even follow for the rest of the titled nobility as their is strong campaign to change heriditary titles so that they include female heirs (partly driven to avoid situations like the Cormaeril claim).

I was wondering how much did Randal Morn try to avoid the lordship of the Dale falling to the Cormaerils? I haven't found any record of him taking a wife and trying to 'solve' it the traditional way. If the issue was infertility would he have tried to change the rules of succession at all like they are doing in the uk? As much of an adventurer and gallavanting lord he was, Randal Morn strikes me as someone who would move the Dagger Hills to make sure Daggerdale was in safe hands.

Anything you can tell us on this would be awesome...I have a love for all things Daggerdale.

Hi again, all.
Eli the Tanner, I'm not sure how much Daggerdale lore is NDA for Ed, right now.
Back in 1982 or 1984 (or so), Ed wrote a short story entitled "To Slay A Black Raven," in which Randal Morn and three adventuring companions (Florin, for example; all of them famous in later published Realmslore, but not as a foursome) rode into Daggerdale from adventuring elsewhere to "rescue" the dale from Zhentarim occupation. The Zhents had installed a mageling named Malyk (yes, before any other writer used that character name in the Realms) as Lord of the Dale, and Randal Morn's younger sister, Silver Morn, was living in hiding in the dale. TSR "lost" that story SIX TIMES over the years (requesting new copies, each time), and as the years have passed, the published history of Daggerdale has gone in various directions (in my early years of posting Ed's replies here at the Keep, he dealt with some Daggerdale queries), and Ed plotted the three Daggerdale 2e modules (that I think Jim Butler wrote, if I recall correctly). Various characters and plot angles and ideas have been "taken" over the years by various staff designers intending to do their own fiction [[I've no idea why Daggerdale was so popular with them; perhaps it was just the name of the place]], so although the publishing company that presents the Realms has changed and most of the staffers have long gone, a minefield of confused overlapping NDAs remains.
Ed is REALLY busy being the Busiest Writer Alive right now (I'm not kidding; I'm used to the pace he keeps, and what he's been doing these last few weeks staggers even me), but I've shot your query along to him in hopes he can make some sort of answer to you.
BTW, there are noble families in the Realms (in both Waterdeep and Cormyr) where the eldest born becomes heir regardless of gender, and there have even been nobility that descends through the female line, NOT the male line, but I'm not sure if any of those families have survived past the early 1300s DR.
Remind me, please, which Realms products covered the Cormaerils in relation to Daggerdale? (There have always been PC Cormaerils in Ed's library mini-campaigns and as guests in the "home" Realms campaign [when a guest player "sat in" for a night or two, I mean], so quite a few different Cormaerils have done stuff in the game Ed DMs for us, and I often forget what's published official lore, and what happened in "Ed's own Realms" [being as the latter very frequently becomes the former]. Beliard Cormaeril, for example, has been played by six different gamers that I know of, and some of them had very energetic plans for side-deals, investments, intrigues, and so on.)
love,
THO

Ed & THO (or anyone else who can answer this)(Markustay???),

Other than Osse, Anchorome, Katashaka, and Aurune (assuming those are the correct names for the Unknown Lands), what are the other "Unknown Lands" in the FRCS for 3rd Edition Scholar's View of Toril map. There is one west of Anchorome & Maztica and two east of Katashaka. Is there any information that can be shared on these (name of land, style of play [New World=Anchorome, Faerun=Europe, Kara-Tur=Asia])? I have a future campaign set up (post-Sumbral campaign) where the PC's just explore, and I was wondering if this knowledge can be known, or is it NDA?

Now plugging away on mass conversion to 5e, as well as my imprint J. Halk Games.

Indeed, 'tis true. Alazne Inthré (daughter of Laspeera Naerinth and Aundable Inthré) was her mother's only child, but inherited her title as Lady Eveningspire based on a grant that guaranteed that the title would descend along the female line only.

I'm not certain that any other published families credit inheritance along these lines, however.

The most recent, significant coverage was Eric Menge's "Backdrop: Daggerdale" in Dungeon #192. Rule is said there to have passed from Randal to Silver to Silver's son Sathrin Cormaeril. Sathrin's son, Domavos, ruled the dale as "the Lord Morn," as did/does his son, Barathal (as of 1469DR).

As to dinosaurs, "Children of Ubtao" would work for me. I mean, it sounds ominous enough already.

My question is: what are relationships between elementalist wizards and priests of elemental powers?
And what are relationships between priests of different elemental powers? Do they tend to see it as "it's really between us", as respectful rivalry between those in much the same situation (they're mostly-marginal, after all), or simply shrug and don't pay much attention to this, focusing on their own tasks instead?

Hello you lovely people :)

I have three questions for Ed and THO that span three different parts of the Forgotten Realms.

1.) I know that Maligor was the Zulkir of Transmutation before Druxus Rhym and that he had a fierce rivalry with Szass Tam while he lived. Aside from a certain proclivity for Potions of Longevity and a penchant for gnoll slaves, much of the rest of Maligor's life is a mystery to me, so I was wondering as to an expansion to what is written in Red Magic and the Villain's Lorebook (where I believe he appeared in detail). How long had he lived? What was his relationship with his (presumed) apprentice Rhym, and did he have a family of his own? What were Maligor's policies, government and magic-wise, with Thay's neighbours? How did he fall ardently in to the faith of Myrkul (to the point where the deity's symbol was tattooed on his head)? Any further information on this interesting character would be hugely appreciated.

2.) How does retirement work in the Realms? Historic standards saw people working until death or being kept by their families once work wasn't an option, but do some armies across the Realms (and indeed organisational employers, even the secretive ones such as the Harpers and the Zhents), offer pensions? How does this effect different regions of the Realms, and are there certain locales that the elderly migrate to in order to live a more sustained and comfortable retirement, where wealth affords it?

3.) Ghaunadaur is prominent as an Underdark deity of oozes, slimes and the like, but knowing that 'rebels' sometimes follow the Elder Eye, I wondered as to any notable followers (historic or current) of this deity. I'm seeing a more malicious Spartacus in my mind who may have led some slaves to freedom, only to subjugate them in the name of Ghaunadaur, but I'm intrigued that this outcast god may attract rebels and revolutionaries of all stripes, both good and bad. Is it a god to whom lip service is typically offered when orchestrating a rebellion, but is then swiftly forgotten (possibly with intent) so that history books do not record the entity that was on the side of the victors, given the rather poor reputation his faith has surrounding it? Have any notable uprisings been led by members of this clergy, and if so, have they bravely kept up their faith beyond the rebellion's initial flourish?

Many thanks and hugs to Ed and THO.

That's the one Garen! I couldn't quite remember the issue number. It gives a fairly nice summary of the changes and brief history to the dale since the timeskip. I'm hoing similar "Backdrop" articles will be done for the other dales too.

@THO: Thanks for the insight the history of daggerdale publications. I often wondered why it seemed like Randal Morn had reclaimed the dale numerous times. I'd love to hear more about how those home games diverged from the official plots.

I have two more questions, one of which pertains to my particular campaign and the other is pure curiosity, having recently returned from Pompeii:

1.) A rather general question (at least at first), but what is the status of children in the Realms? By this I mean in regards to faith, wardenhood, foster and adoptive rights etc. I ask the question with an example in mind. In my campaign a lovely young couple of PCs recently expired after many years of adventure, in rather tragic circumstances. They left behind a small child of only 3, currently with a nurse but soon to be picked up by the remainder of the party (none of whom are particularly parental).

Our Priestess of Myrkul has offered to take the baby in to her church for guardianship, education and ultimately, a life. Our paladin has objected to this proposal, citing that a temple dedicated to the dead is no place for a child to grow, and while he has no intent to settle down, he would rather take the child with him wherever he goes, enduring whatever hardships he may in order to raise the child following the codes of his order. The other party members are largely ambivalent, providing the child is cared for and kept safe.

With this being the case, and the party being based on the Dragon Coast (they are known between Elversult and Westgate, most prominently), what are the rights of children? Do they become the ward of the local government, nearest church, local parish beadle, or other? One would imagine it depends on region, but I would be interested in hearing your thoughts, and also which faiths in particular may care (and especially those that would not) about the well-being of a child. In my mind, all faiths would see children as hugely important, no matter how evil they may ostensibly be. They're the future, after all.

2.) Undoubtedly pornography exists in the Realms in various forms, but I wondered at those forms. Dirty scriptures, naughty carvings, live shows and erotic sculpture spring to mind, but I also wonder at which nations are particularly prudish about such things and which are very liberal.

I also wonder at what the common pornographic limits are, as it were. Laws are created to protect the innocent, after all, so I wondered at whether there were similar pornographic laws in the Realms as to the real world. It's a potential powderkeg subject, I understand, but having recently got back from my trip to Italy and seen the sheer volume of unabashed nudity, some of it pornographic, on display in mosaics, murals, sculptures and so on, I'm interested to hear about how it exists in the Realms. Has there ever been a raunchy lithograph doing the rounds in the streets of Cormyr, showing Azoun in a blue pose?



Thanks!

I'm obviously neither Ed nor THO, but look up Llurth Dreir (once Lolthite theocracy taken over by turncoats, shapeshifting infiltrators and aboleths) and Ka'Narlist (a high-profile worshipper back in Ilythiir, wizard, who long after Crown Wars remains a semi-mythological figure).

Hey THO! I've got one of those weird, one-off queries that I can't really think of any other place to ask, so I figured I'd go to the source. In the campaign I'm currently running, one of my players is having, shall we say larcenous intentions toward a certain tower. And he wants to bring along some tar paper in case any of the local windows insults his honor.

I'm going to give it to him, of course, but I'm a little confused about whether or where it would come from. The group is currently in a rather cold part of the western Heartlands, so it wouldn't be used as a building material. So I'm having him build it from the two components. Paper is expensive, of course, but it's the tar I'm uncertain of. Where would it come from? Are there parts of the surface Realms known for tar pits, or is it something traded for from the Underdark? It's obviously of great use in shipbuilding and other types of building, but how far would merchants carry it in search of a market? And what sort of prices does it fetch? Are there more local substitutes?

Any light you could shed on this very dark (and smelly!) subject would be fascinating. Thanks, as always.

Doggedly converting 3e back to what D&D should be...
Sigh... And now 4e as well.

on the cover of the murder in Baldur's gate sundering adventure. That's Bhaal's symbol isnt it?

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power
