Alaundo if I could direct your attention to this scroll http://www.candlekeep.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1725 You will see that we are currently in the process of creating a small village lying directly south of the Cloudpeak Mountains. When the work on this is finished and compiled I will send you the document in question. Until then please could I ask everyone to read said scroll and leave feedback. You might have picked up on something that I missed on or you might have an idea that would be suitable that you'd like to share!

All help is appreciated

Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore-
While i nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

I suppose I could give you my Jack Archer story, then. Once it's assembled, of course; I can hardly give the current scraps in the Adventuring wing the lofty title of "Realmslore."

And then of course, there are the feats, skills, spells, and items created here; I suppose they could go into listings where they're cleaned up and assembled in alphabetical order.

Well met

Indeed, my dear Bookwyrm! In fact, it is on my ever-growing task list, as one of the first entries no less, to sift through the numerous scrolls herein and gather up the many items of Realmslore penned by such as yourself and The Sage. The task is great, but ill be sure to work on it soon enough

Not sure if this is the sort of stuff your after

The Following is the FR/Draconomicon article I origionally posted on the FR forums last year

Draconicon and the FR

Church of Bahermat in Cormyr and the Stonelands

Bahamut in the Realms

Before the elves walked upon Faerun, Bahamut played a far more active role in the realms then he has in recent times. His followers founded 2 city states one in the Marsh of tun the other in Farsea marsh both of these cities where ruled by Metalic Dragons and populated with Half Dragons and Dragonkin, all those who worshiped Bahamut where welcome there. The 2 cities thrived for more than 10,000 years until Tiamat and her Chromatic Dragons destroyed the cities in the first Dragon rage. The destruction was so complete that an Avatar of Tiamat was able to appear in the 2 cities and sow the soil and air with pestilence so no one could ever live there.

The ruins of the two cities can still be found in those 2 Marshes, Tiamats pestilence still remains.

After the destruction of the two cities Bahamut seemed to slowly withdraw from the world of Toril. He maintained only a slight interest in the world mainly involving his True Dragon followers.

Bahamuts interest in Faerun was rekindled in 1359DR when Gareth Dragonsbane a paladin of Ilmater and the future King of Damara meets Bahamut on his home plane. Gareth asks the Platinium Dragon how he might destroy the Wand of Orcus which he had stoleon from that Demon Lord abode in the Abyss. Bahamut told him he must kill an Avatar of the Goddess Tiamat and thrust the wand into her heart. Against all odds Gareth did this and returned to Damara where he was hailed as its King. Bahermats interest was piqued by Gareths actions and was impressed that a mortal human could take on the might of Tiamat, Bahamuts most hated foe.

Tiamat to began to take note of Faerun she was enraged by the death of her avatar and sort vengeance on Gareth and the people of Damara. Tiamat has been gathering a Flight of Chromatic Dragons at the ruins of the Witch Kings castle in Vaasa. Bahamut took note of this to and sent several metallic Dragons and some of his humanoid followers to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose, home to an order of Monks and Paladin dedicated to the Human god Ilmater. There Bahamut with Ilmaters blessing has founded an order of Dragonslayers who would help defend Damara should Tiamat and her spawn ever attack.

Damara though is not the only place Bahermut has taken an interest in during the last 15 years. He has visited many metallic dragons in person and encouraged them to breed. This has resulted in an increase in the population of Wyrmling/young Metalic Dragons throughout the realms. Bahamut has also approached the various Dragonkin Tribes converting several of them.

Tiamats admission to the Faerunian Pantheon in 1369 has spurred Bahamut further. Seeing that Tiamat had begun recruiting humans as worshipers, Bahamut decided to do the same. He also planned to establish a realm of Good Dragons somewhere in Faerun. Bahermut had first intended to establish this realm in Mulhorand, which was a neighbour of Tiamats stronghold of Unther. However upon discovering that that Mulhorand tolerated slavery he decided it was unsuitable for his realm.

Up until 1373 Bahamut had yet to decide where he would establish his realms. But by the end of that year he had a decision

In 1371 the kingdom of Cormyr was beset by plague and a horde of Orcs and Goblins led by a Red Dragon. While the Cormyrians manage to defeat this horde it was not without cost, Cormyrs King was killed battling the Red Dragon and the Crown Princess died putting to rest the Ghazneth curse, the Cormyian city of Arabel was also sacked. The following year things got worse for Cormyr, The Netherse city of Shade returned to Faerun and in attempting to melt the High Ice created Flood and Drought in Cormyr, this led to war with Shade and while the Cormyrians won the city of Tilverton and much of Cormyrs army was destroyed in the battle. Worse still Vangerdahest the leader of War wizards was struck down (believed to have been driven mad.)

By the end of 1372 Cormyr is in dire straits, it has suffered 2 years of poor harvest, its army has been decimated through 2 bloody wars, 2 of its Cities have been sacked or destroyed, Orcs and Goblins roam freely within Cormyrs borders, the king and crown princess are dead and Cormyrs heir Azoun the V is but an infant. These where but a few of the problems that faced Cormyr and its Steel Princess when Bahamut made his offer.

In the first month of 1373 Kalgliteris a Gold great Wyrm and a favoured servant of Bahermut approached the Cormyrians. He offered Bahamuts deal, if the Cormyrians ceded the Stonelands to the Metallic Dragons who served Bahamut then the dragons would help cleanse the Orcs and Goblins from Cormyrs lands and would sign a alliance between the Cormyian and the Dragons so long as Cormyr was led by a Just and righteous king.

The Cormyians being unable to control the Stonelands even at the height of Cormyrs power considered the Stonelands to be no great loss for such a valuable deal, so they agreed and since then several Gold and Silver Dragons have been seen flying towards the Stonelands. In addition a number of Bronze Dragons have settled in Cormyrs costal regions.

True Dragons are not the only Dragonkind to be heading into the Stonelands, Saurials, Half Dragons and Draconic creatures have also been seen. The Cormyian garrison at High Hold where greeted with a startling sight one morning when 20 Gold Silver and Bronze Half Dragon Paladins of Bahamut rode past the fortress mounted on Spiked Felldrakes.

So close has the alliance become, that the infant Azoun now has Dragon body guard. To most “Tabby” appears to be nothing more than a light brown kitten a pet for young Azoun, Only Alusair and Caladnei know the truth, “Tabby” is actually Tabadortankisdracona a Young Adult Gold Dragon. Tabby has already proven his worth as a body guard to young Azoun when single handily stopped an Assassination attempt on infant Azouns life, the attack was carried out by force of Assasins from Shade enclave as payback for Cormyr war against them, Shades hoped to sow more chaos in the country by killing the you Azoun. When the Shades Assasins stepped out of the Shadow plane and into Azouns crèche the last thing they sore was a very Angry Gold Dragon.


Other elements that I have adapted from the Draconomicon to the FR

*Klorphaxius now lairs in Myth Drannor

*Othocintlydavarei lairs in Hullacks forest and the evil druids are the followers of Malar in the Wyvernstones of Hullack adventure in F&P

*Iyriddlemirev lives in the sewers of Marsember

*Natintrapa lives in the Stonelands

*Kacdaniymila and Zudimulamshius both live in Suzail

(Cut to save space :) )


Great minds tread similar paths...

I have been working on a similar realm (mostly mentally, some on paper) but set in the Shining Plains. It doesn't have to do with Bahamut, but with Amaunator ("I'm not dead yet!") and his favoritism towards Steel Dragons. Then again, most don't know of the draconian connection - it's hard to pin down whether a particular human merely has grey eyes or is a Steel in human form

I've got a 10,000 words story I could submit, but I'm not sure if it is too large for these boards (it won me 1st place at the Crossroad Tavern's Bardic Competition hosted by WotC, but compared to what's on the Candlekeep boards, it's not that great - i.e. don't expect a masterpiece!)

I also have a 2ed edition god write-up. Again, I'm not sure if your call includes this kind of info...

I have a certain tome that should be read by all, I am told. It is called 'Winterhaven'. It is about Elminster who resides within a magic school within Candlekeep. One of his desciples learns of linking the Prime Material Plane with that of the Abyss and summoning one of the most powerful demons that resides within the burning pits. The mage summons this demon within his summoning circle only to find this demon cannot be contained with his power. This wizard comes under possession and the demon walks about within the human's form! Inside Candlekeep. Elminster knows there is something all wrong about this scene, but he keeps his suspicions to himself. This is the first time ever that the only son of Elminster is told of. His name is Leto Winterhaven, of course adopted by the mighty wizard. Leto possesses the same instincts his father does, yet is troubled througout his life with struggles of legal matters. He cannot seem to keep his hands off of other peoples' things, due to his previous membership with the Shadow Thieves of Athkatla. Soon, the demon comes to possess the great mage himself on threat of killing Leto and his present adopted daughter. Elminster knows the demon's power, so he does nothing to prevent the demon from taking over his body. Leto knows the demon is within his father, and for that knowledge, he is teleported to the furthest reaches of Kaladesh and his sister is imprisoned. Knowing the power-hungry demon's intent, Leto sets out on a journey to conquer the demon and send him back to the abyss from whince he came. I hope to submit this scroll soon, for I am just now finishing the final chapter. I do hope you will all enjoy.

Well met!

Here is my attempt to insert the Orbs of Dragonkind (as per the 3rd edition) into my FR campaign ...

-----

Little is known about the true origin of the Orbs of Dragonkind, but according to legend Corellon Larethian appeared to elfkind soon after they began to unlock the secrets of magic. He bequeathed upon the elves 5 orbs of great power that would give them the necessary might to throw of the yoke of wyrmkind and enable their culture to flourish. And so it was, with legend going on to tell how many an elfin knight used one orb or another to master and slay dragon after dragon, until at length legend became history and the great elfin civilizations of Aryvander, Illefarn, Meyeritar, Shantel Othreier, and Keltormir had emerged along the west coast of Faerun.

By this time, with the mastery of elfin magic and the great reduction in the might and numbers of dragonkind, the need for the orbs had diminished substantially. Nevertheless, they continued to hold symbolic value and so each of the great elfin civilization kept one orb within its greatest temple to Corellon.

Throughout the course of the Crown Wars (-12,000 DR to -9,000 DR) history began to lose track of the fabled orbs. It is believed that, at one time, the realm of Aryvander had come into possession of at least three of the orbs via it‘s conquests, while the dark elves of Ilythiir are known to have used enslaved dragons to destroy the realm of Shantel Othreier, and so might have come into possession of one themsleves.

As for the Green Orb, it is known to have been carried eastward in the wake of the Fifth Crown Wars to the great forest Arcorar, now known as Cormanthor. It was brought forth from the remains of Aryvander to help the pioneers deal with the great number of dragons that made their home in the verdant wood.

Eventually the great elfin realms of Rystall, Jhyrennstar, Uvaeren, Sembreholm sprung into being within Arcorar, and of these Uvaeren was the greatest. So rich in knowledge were the elves of Uvaeren, that their land became known as the Lorelands. Amongst their many fabled librariums, it is told that none rivalled that of Intevar‘s, for it is said to have contained the collective knowledge of all elves. And amongst its many grand temples, it is said that none rivalled that of Corellon Larethian, for it was here that the Green Orb was housed.

The glory of Uvaeren was brought to an abrupt end in the year -5,000 DR however, when a great meteor fell from the heavens and devastated the Lorelands. While it is unknown if the temple in any way survived this destruction, the remaining ruins were in the hands of the increasingly present Drow within 100 years, and they held them until at last forced out in the year -1,354 DR; roughly 2,600 years after the birth of the city of Cormanthor (-3983 DR).

Little mention is ever again made of the Green Orb, save one...

In the year -982 DR a green dragon of great power named Venominhandar began to rampage in the southeastern woods. Such was the potency and endurance of this wyrm that the elves of Cormanthyr quickly called for a quest, to the ruins of Corellon’s temple in old Uvaeren; there to find and retrieve the Orb. The questing elves however, never returned, and the might of Venom, as he came to be called, continued to wax.

For over 700 years Venom plagued the elves, destroying their communities, driving them out, and using his fell magic to twist and tangle the woods of the great domain he had claimed in the southeast. His personal power was unrivalled amongst dragonkind, and he commanded a veritable army of wyverns, black dragons and green dragons. Nevertheless, it was in the year -206 DR. that the elfin hero Jassin Aunglor, armed with a fabled moonblade, at last challenged Venom himself. This took place in the wyrm’s lair beneath Haptooth Hill, and it was here that both Venom and Jassin met their ends; as the cavern complex the wyrm inhabited collapsed in upon them.

Of Venom’s offspring, only the terrible wyrm known as Green Magic is known to have outlived her father. Here lair is thought to have been located somewhere south of her sires, but she was last seen bathing in a river in the year 0 DR, and both her fate and the location of her lair are unknown.

Some scholars believe that Venom’s initial rampages were strategically aimed at forcing the elves to reveal the location of the Green Orb. They believe that the band of elves sent to locate and retrieve the orb were somehow followed by agents of the wyrm, and eventually slaughtered by them. With their murder, or so the theories go, these agents brought the orb back to Venom, who then used it’s power to raise and command his draconic army. Other scholars have denounced such theories as overly speculative, and say that Venom was more likely a mere throw back to the fearsome dragons of the elder age.

As for the Orb, the more conservative scholars believe that it was destroyed when the meteor hit. Others still argue that it was borne off into the Underdark during the 4,000 years that the Drow controlled the ruins.

Unbeknowst to history, Green Magic was quickly destroyed by a number of wyrms in an ambush, with the wiley black dragon Zarlandris emerging in the end to steal both the victory and the Orb for himself. Thus, it was carried to Glaun Bog.

In centuries to come Dretchroyaster, the descendent of Venom would would rampage across the southeastern Dalelands, engaging in brutal battles with a number of black dragons, in search of both vengeance and the orb. The latter however, forever evaded him.

With having gotten Annihilation, I was talking to one of my players about the WOTSQ series. She was very impressed by Lisa Smedman's writing about Eilistraee followers. In the past, this player has not been happy with the way some view and/or play Eilistraee clerics/followers. Thus, she's talking about writing up a piece with suggestions on how to play followers of the Dark Maiden.

She is a busy lady. Thus, I have no idea if this idea will come to fruition now or in the future. However, for those interested, if she does write the piece, she doesn't mind if I share the work privately via email to those interested. So, just an FYI to those who might be interested in such a piece. If she does complete it, I'll start a new thread and go from there.

That sounds great Sirius - thanks for bringing it up. When you post it, Talwyn or I can forward it to to our other online group - the Chosen of Eilistraee.

You're welcome. I think she has viewed your online group and from what I recall, she wouldn't have a problem with it being posted there. I'll pass along the interest and thanks for being so polite.

Greetings Alaundo! I would like to contact you via email however I am experienceing problems at the moment so it may be a while before I can properly contact you. But please don't forget about me!! I truly do want to contribute but electronics in this house are going through a hectic time.
