For Ed:

Markustay and I created a fanbook about Ixinos, home of the She-Wolves Mercenary Company. What did you personally think of the She-Wolves and how they fit into the Vilhon Reach area? Do you have any thoughts on how they might engage in sponsoring independent adventuring groups to augment their interests in the Reach to better protect Ixinos?

AD&D for me!

When Mystra returned, did she go about finding a Magister soon after?

If memory serves me correct, a former Barae of Chult used a heavy dose of gem magic as well. This was demonstrated in the novel Ring of Winter.

Id really like to know about gem magic in the Realms as well.

Ed, a few rather obscure (to me, at least) NPC queries;

From your 2006 Q&A thread at Candlekeep (23 Jan 2006, specifically), I'd like to know more of ;
"Aka 'the Questmaster' (the mysterious sponsor and trainer of adventurers) who dwells, these days, in the wilderlands of the Sword Coast North."

Also,

Is Ambra, the half-elven sometime-prostitute and creator of the spell Ambra's Kiss (again from your '06 replies, 22 Nov 2006 specifically) the same person as Ambra Steelthorn, masked owner of the broadsheet Full Frontal Druidity: The Broadsheet That Lays Bare Secrets Most Shocking, from your 2009 Spin-a-Yarn, Night of the Dread Pudding?

And if so, can we have more information on her? And if not, can you provide more information on both?

Again, for Ed;

Back in 2006 (18 Feb 2006, specifically) you made reply at candlekeep.com to someone asking about an island shown north of Icewind Dale on the "A Scholar's View of Abeir-Toril" map of the 3E FRCS (page 231) which stated, in part, "Folk of surface Faern today have entirely forgotten about this huge island, and dont know where 'Duuthskor' (a place in the oldest Uthgardt legends, and mentioned in some dwarven chants) is."

I was wondering if you might be able to relay some of the details of those legends and chants?

Okay, we are going to meet up again this Saturday to talk Realms, so if anyone has more questions please feel free. Can't guarantee we'll get to the this session but we'll give it the old New Olamn try!

Ahem, it was the (absolutely appropriate) royal "we" and "we" are participating on Saturday morning.

An absolutely wonderful endeavor. I love this podcast; I don't think I've been this excited to just go back and reread everything from the greybox on ...just to immerse myself in all things Realms!

Thanks to Eric and George's conversations, I can't wait to establish a new campaign in the High Forest. Fantastic motivation gents; thanks!

Good to see that people are enjoying the podcasts. They are fun to do but the heavy lifting is being done by Jeff Thetford who coordinates us and then does the thankless task of editing and putting it all together. A true hero of the Realms.

I second the praise for the podcasts and everyone involved in making them full of lore, enjoyable to listen to and available to us.

Also, I don't know if I should be happy and honoured about triggering the first Eric Boyd NDA (that I know of) on Princess Tianna Skyflower but I'm looking forward (even more so than before if possible) to Crown of Earlann.

Question for Mods and whoever else is "in charge" of this scroll: we should direct all new answer to the new scroll in the Chamber of Sages, right?

I've been working my way through them and they are fantastic. To whit, I'll make my first query for them: I'm currently running a campaign in Sessrendale and would dearly love any information that can be given about the dale and the Dusk Lord in particular. I've already combed through the CK forums and come across some great lore, but anything to expand upon that would be helpful.

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