I don't mean The Chosen of Mystra, or The Zulkirs of Thay...
I mean the REALLY powerful casters! The Srinshee, Larloch, Ioulaum, etc.

Do these demi-god-like players ever make novel appearances, and if they do, in which ones?

The Lost Library of Cormanthyr has the Shrinshee I believe


Larloch is in the short story Tears So White, from one of the realms anthologies
And maybe in the last of the rage of the dragons triology, can't remember on that for sure.

Someone didn't read the OP.

Well, Elminster is one of the really powerful casters... And the OP lists the Srinshee, who is a Chosen of Mystra -- prolly the most powerful of the Chosen, at that.

Ed Greenwood's book "The Herald" is coming out June 3rd, I believe. I've already read it, and it features some of the heaviest hitters in the Realms. Read on for Spoilers:


SPOILERS





It features Elminster, the Srinshee, Telamont Tanthul, and Larloch. They don't just make appearances either. They sling magic.
