Don't know if anyone is paying attention, but Ed is up to installment 7 of his Unofficial History of the Realms at his Edverse website. I'm enjoying seeing his earliest thoughts on the Realms being rolled out for my musing.

Odd...I have been checking the website regularly for updates, but have not seen anything new past the fourth update.

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

I signed up for the site newsletter, hoping that there would be emails when there were updates, but this has not been the case.

I'm keeping up with these. I just wish there was a more efficient alert process for the updates... because I don't check everyday.

Are there any news about Ed's Unofficial History book that is supposed to be released at GenCon? That definitely sparked my interest.

It would be cool if they did that. It'd save me the trouble of copy/pasting all these snipets together and getting it bound at Kinkos.

I'm going the other way right now Delwa. My 20 year old collection of photocopied FR lore is slowly being scanned into searchable, manageable PDFs. In a little while I'll have all my FR stuff on a single USB.

I'm slowly backing up things to a Google Drive account, but technology hates me enough, I like to have a physical copy. Though, I'd be more than happy to pay you to make a duplicate of that USB...

If the Unofficial History is released at GenCon, will it also be available to those unable to attend?

Latest news from Ed: that particular book will be delayed - - perhaps as long as an entire year.
However, scribes, Ed tells me that you'll all know why just before GenCon, when a LOT will appear on Ed's website. Big Plans. Not necessarily Realms-related, but big.
I can't spill any more yet, but I wanted to save scribes from being disappointed, come GenCon time.
However, Ed WILL be releasing instalments in his 50th Anniversary history of the Realmson his website regularly (for free, of course), so keep reading . . .
love to all,
THO
P.S. And yes, it WILL be a book anyone can get, not just those who can make it to GenCon.
P.P.S. Wooly and Sage, a leetle bird tells me that someone will be contacting both of you, when the time is right, regarding something you've both expressed interest in, in the past. Can't say more yet (she teased, because teasing is what this Hooded Lady does), but . . .

I'll say it again it is awesome, so much potential so many ideas.

I love the double intrigue - the spell weavers manipulating the sarrukh, manipulating the netherese (very Ed).

The Sstar gems sound like Chardalyn to me, so now there is a reason for their collection.

I love the Elah Nydra link with Elahzad. Looks like she disappeared there following the relinquishment of her divinity, not sure how to fit Eldath in there though.


Loads of food for thought (and archwizard names), I'm going to be re-reading this another 50 times for various clues and things hidden between the lines. Its given me the inspiration I need to work on my Netheril project again.

Eric wrote a piece on Jergal for some other work and then I massaged it by adding some further stuff, turning it into what is on the site.

My fancy is tickled, as well. And now that I've typed that, I must acknowledge it's a weird-sounding sentence.

(In truth, I've been rather busy, of late, and had forgotten that promise )
