Apparently a lot has changed since 3.5e, but I am currently running a campaign with characters who wish to take a culinary tour of the realms. Are the records in Volothamp's guides still accurate or are they obsolete now that the Sundering has occurred?

They're 100+ years out of date...

Hello,

I was wondering any one has some expertise in what sort of poisons might be in use in the Realms? Most specifically, ones that are multipart, in that two normally harmless substances that, when eaten or drunk together, becomes toxic inside the victim's body, or otherwise aren't subject to normal detect poison spells. Any help would be appreciated.

Well met

Just a notification that I will be updating some main site content over the next couple of weeks. If any members wish to have any material included on the site (be that Campaign journals, stories, lore articles etc.) then please drop me a PM on the forum or email (alaundo@candlekeep.com).

If you have posted an article in the forum and I have not contacted you either privately or by a reply post, then I may have missed the thread, so please give me a nudge by the above methods if you wish your material included

Many thanks, fellow scribes.

Great to hear it! I kind of did a double-take when I got a thread reminder, it'd been so long. :P

One usually has far more to fear from the soft-spoken wizard with a blade and well-worn boots than from the boisterous one in the ivory tower.

I was working on something, but it got set aside. It's on my mind, but I haven't gotten around to finishing it.

Does anyone have any lore or stats for The Knaves of The Missing Page? Or The Rogues of The Laughing Midnight?

From everything I have gathered, the Knaves are operating out of Evereska, with a member of House Floshin near Daggerford on the outskirts of Ardeep forest?

The Laughing Midnight is operating out of Silverymoon? Everlund? The Silver Marches in general? I have only read what is on these threads. Yet there seems to be more information on The Laughing Midnight than the Missing Page. Not sure if it's canon or not. I would like more information on both elven guilds if possible.

Archfey of Debauchery was Copper Elven Vampire pretending to be someone else. He knew exactly where to find what he was looking for; I think he was trying to make himself seem more important.

Yes, and also inquired of scribes why he could not PM Copper Elven Vampire, Oghma only knows why.

Neither do I, nor do I want to. Wooly had to deal with the full load of crap.

I'm not sure I know the full story, and I was involved!

The thing of pretending to be someone else was just... odd.

Well playing a character most of us do know how to do, however odd that a user would use a new screen name to try to contact the old screen name. Also there was praise and admiration as I recall. Maybe part was the idea was to rally members to question why CEV was no longer posting, hoping there were members to rally for that user.

There can be many guesses as far as it goes.

Seeker Khorvaen,

I agree. I think it all does, but I really want the structural fluff, such as more about governance, economics, cultural beliefs, etc. I would eat that stuff up all day! :)

Sembia was originally deliberately left vague, to give DMs as much room to play as possible.

Master Rupert,

I've always found with the great and rich lore you can find in the Realms, that it is six in one hand, half-dozen in the other. I love the idea of filling it in in some cases, but I love going and reading the lore!

Best regards,

There is lore out there for Sembia. It is just scattered all over the place and would have to be assembled into something coherent. For example, there was The Wooden Nose War in Ordulin that had it's seeds in the summer of 1372 but didn't really kick off until Elias 6, 1373. That was from one Ed's web articles (named The Wooden Nose War).

"Iriaebor is a fine city. So what if you can have violence between merchant groups break out at any moment. Not every city can offer dinner AND a show."

Senior Scribe TheIriaeban,

That is a perfect example of lore I love to read about right there, as opposed to making it up myself. So cool. Thank you for sharing that!

Sembia lore also gets covered in the later Erevis Cale novels as Shade increasingly influenced them. I think that makes Sembia even more interesting now that the shades are mostly gone, though it wouldn't surprise me to see some of them still pulling the strings from the shadows.

"pulling the strings from the shadows" -- as it should have been, all along.
