I can't remember the exact details but she was killed by Manshoon after the Spellplague hit. As I recall, she was working with Elminster to thwart one of his schemes. Sorry I can't provide more info at the moment. If someone hasn't chimed in by tomorrow I'll try to find the book the story is in and look it up for you.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

Hmmm, now I'm even more intrigued because I hadn't even considered the story possibly being post-spellplague. I may have to dig it up myself and reread it.

Who is the current Magister BTW?

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”

I'm going to look it up now (if I can find the book that is) but if memory serves, Talatha actually took the appearance of Elminster as bait for Manshoon. I'll get back to you on it in a bit.

@Shadowsoul: As for as I know there isn't one but I could be wrong.

Well I can't find the book. I suspect that it was packed with my daughter's books when she moved. Perhaps GK will drop in and offer some insight.

It's actually a bit hard to say. She spews up blue flame after taking the shape of Larloch and Elminster comments that to get his permission would have been "costly". She then expires weeping blue tears. I guess in simple terms, the Spellplague burned her out.

Ahh... even more intrigued... so it was not pre or post spellplague, but MID. I'll hunt this down tonight. It may not be, but this seems like some kind of gem we can do something with (as many things are until I actually get into the details).

I think it was WAY post spellplague. I think something about Larloch's magic is connected to the blue-fire of spellplague in Eds books. This is based mostly on the blue-fire items. However, perhaps his magical protections link him to the weave and dole out such punishments from those attempting to impersonate him - similar in many ways to Mystra's curse involved with coping another wizard's sigil.

So about a month and a half after the Mystra's Death since it happened somewhere between the 16th-29th of Tarsakh according to the brotherhood of the Griffin novels.

So now this - and things bouncing-around in other threads - has made me reevaluate my theories on the 'colors of magic'.

I was way off-base thinking it is about Mystra and Shar, when really it was about Selūne (Silver) and Primordial RAW Magic (Blue).

We also have red & purple in the lore, so now I'm thinking its more of an 'alignment' kind of thing, then 'schools' or 'types', but not in the way we used to think about alignments - more like how 4e handled 'power sources'.
