I thought I'd start with a couple of hard ones (though Orlindea is a pretty central point within that source).

Yup, that's one of the Thunder Peaks. Let's see what others people know: bonus points will be awarded.

There's also Hooknose Crag which I spotted on maps in the FR Atlas and Volo's guide to Cormyr.

Bonus points, eh?

Let's see, there are Helmturtle Peak (Volo's Guide to the Dalelands p. 160), Manymists Mountain (same book, p. 159), and Mount Thalagbror (p. 10).

Three's enough, methinks. To work with the rest of ye!

I'll post a new question when I get home from work. So you'll have to wait several hours...

Okay, my newest question:

The farming village of Geniste used to lay beyond the southeastern expanse of Tethyr's Purple Hills. What destroyed all traces of this village?

Halaster's Higharvestide-specifically, a great flood of green slime.(Page 8 of Undermountain: Stardock, notes in Lands of Intrigue and Calimport.)

Does that mean that someone else can ask a question instead?

There's no chance I can answer faster than anyone else, but I'm sure I can find questions that should stump you all for a whole minute.

Alright then. Let's see about this one.

What Realms food is similar to real-world corn chips?

nah, not as hard as one would think. Someone's got the entire pdf for Stardock on the web. Just do a google search for Geniste + realms.

Google isn't generally helpful, though. Close, but not right.

Hmmm... I'd not even thought of hitting Google to answer these questions...

You can also do a .PDF search, if you have the books downloaded.
It allows you to search all .pdf files on a hard drive.

Bingo-at least with Acrobat 6.0 and later related products, at least. Also, searching every PDF on your hard disk will take an hour or two, likely-better to stuff them all in one folder and just check that one. Anyway, back to the Realmslore?

A nice fact to know. Thank you for sharing the information.

I think you may have to offer up a hint regarding your question.

Sorry it took so long to reply.(perhaps I should have chosen an easyer queston)
A few hints, (lets get this moveing fast)
This was reported by the most well known Restaurant revewers.
This Restaurant, is also a adventurers' club.
It was founded by a worshiper of Loviator.
Due to location, a cleric from the temple "Lady of Good Fortune" temple spends much time there.

Hope this helps (agien sorry if it was to tough, and for being slow)
EDIT: since I have been proven to be slow, I will ether bow out of this from now on, OR pick blatenly obvious questions, I hate slowing down the fun

I don't think there's a need to do either. You picked a really good question. I was stumped until the hints as my knowledge of the Dalelands is not as strong as some other FR areas.

And speaking of questions, here's one for everyone else:

Of All the Taverns in Waterdeep, which one has the most dedicated patrons?

One of my personal faves: The Crawling Spider. Volo's Guide to Waterdeep, page 22.

Okay... What 2 spells are on the scrolls that Hsssthak is guarding?

Eltabbar in Thay - to imprison the demon lord Eltab (who rumour has it will be making a future appearance in an FR product ...) - Spellbound boxed set.

Okay, my question is:

What is odd about one of the drow noble houses of Ched Nasad?
