Not sure if this is the direction you are going in but

One of the drow noble houses, House Auvryndar is led by a female drow vampire of Lolth (Drizzt's Guide to the Underdark, pages 49-50).

Let me know if that's what you were asking. It is, or was, a drow city, so you could have something else odd in mind.

I thought about adding that part as a joke. But, then, it's not unique these days for such a state to have befallen Ched Nasad nobles.

O! I think I know this...

In House Jusztiirn was a powerful "wizard", who was actually an adult blue dragon named Krashos Morueme (some called him George for short! j/k), who survived the fall and is currently bossing about a fire genasi in the city's rubble. (Underdark, page 133).

I'm probably wrong, but it was worth adding, anyway.

No, it's not me - although it is kind of cool being a Morueme dragon.:)

Arivia got it right, but didn't give us a question to follow up.

The answer is of course: House D'Dgttu (which conveniently stands for "Drizzt Do'Urden's Guide to the Underdark"). Blame Mr Boyd's warped sense of humour.

I'll leave it to Arivia to give us the next question.

I shudder to think what humor he's inserted into the upcoming Serpent Kingdoms.

Warning, people, don't try participating in trivia contents without any sleep-you'll leave everyone hanging for an answer.

This question's a two parter(although they are closely related):
1)Where can you find an eleven-foot long sword jutting out of a cliff?
And 2)What four gods have runes inscribed upon it?

Alright, I seem to have stumped everyone. Does someone else have a question?

Or that.
I'll give you the hint Sargauth Falls, then-either you'll know where to look from there, or you probably won't get it.

Nah, that means you answer your own question, with a source, and then ask another.

Or you could hold out for a bit longer, but spur us on with a clue or two...

To be honest, until I went looking for a clue, I'd forgotten the source......Bad Arivia, bad Arivia...

I could remember the series(oops, I guess that's a minor hint) but not much else.

Sargauth Falls, Room #18 Champignon Caverns in Undermountain: The Lost Level. The four gods are Bane, Bhaal, Moander, and Myrkul. (Undermountain: The Lost Level by Steven E. Schend, pg. 19).

Good question Arivia!

Which Realms song has a chorus that begins:

And in this land I'll proudly stand

Until my dying day, sir.

"The Cormyte's Boast" by Master Bard Chanthalas (VGtC, p.105).

My question is:

Of which realm was Angorl Steelhorn, the long-ago ruler of?

I knew that question wasn't going to go unanswered for long once you signed on.

How is John doing? You're coming up on a month soon. Have you tried signing "The Cormyte's Boast" to him as a lullaby?

Cheers,

Angorl Steelhorn was once ruler of Rashemen, as related in Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast (p. 119).

My question, for ye of many sources, is as follows:

Who was Ardagundus (also known as Argandus), and where did he live?

Oh if only it was that simple!

He's doing well, crying, sleeping (usually when not wanted to), becoming quite irresistible and generally fitting well into "the universal scheme of things". I just picked up my copy of "The Rage" (to see what Richard did to "my" Impiltur ...) so I'll see if he likes FR prose ...

Oh, dear. When George needs a hint, I know I've gone and found an obscure reference.

My hint shall be sufficiently cryptic, however--Look for our friend Ardagundus in a place where offhand references to collectors of books might be found. Among some old pages, perhaps?

Well yes, and no. You see that awful Arthagus "of the Miracles" keeps bobbing up in my consciousness and I can't focus on Ardagundus. I'll think on your hint.

I think we'll need a real hint, Garen. And hopefully the answer to this one isn't in some awful FR PC game product ...

Are good PC game products allowed and only the awful ones frowned upon?

From the hint, I thought it might be in the Candlekeep Collection article that was on the WotC website years ago... But I just checked that, and found nothing.
