Urlgen received the name "Threefist" from the rigged headpiece he usually uses in battle. It allows him to headbutt as if he had a third fist on his forehead.

Source is "A Thousand Orcs", of the Hunter's Blades Trilogy



My question... :
Who is Ratakos, and who are his two allies?

A necromancer, and Lord Aris and Tanatha are his allies, as told by Four from Cormyr.

Anyone can ask a question now, if they wish. Something a bit harder would be nice.

Hm, I meant Ryanna and Moria, but I suppose that works at well. And harder? You'd be surprised how few even know Four from Cormyr over here... *sigh*

I've got one, if I may:

What do the feared mages Sespetar and Turgohn the Two-Fingered wear as part of their normal attire?

Hmmm ... looks like the FR trivia frenzy has died off - although I didn't think my question was THAT hard. The answer is:

Kybals' Cords (FR4 The Magister, p.44-45.

I'll leave it to another scribe to come up with another question.

This will probably prove screamingly easy, but I thought I'd have a go.

What is the name of a kuo-toa revolutionary who massacred some drow merchants, and where did it happen?

Okay, maybe not screamingly easy. Actually, looking at the question, it was very vague. Sorry guys.

Hint: I have just one 1e/2e book, and the answer isn't from it

Okay - I'm guessing that my question isn't the only reason this has started to be forgotten, but I'm gonna make sure. Sorry for not clearing it up sooner.

The answer is: Lu, in the city of Sorath-Nu-Sum (Underdark, page 184)

The next question is anyone else's.

I guess a hint is in order.

Elminster has more than a passing interest in her role.

Hint: Her "creation" is akin to that of Ieiridauna Amalree

Shoot, Eric! What product/novel talks about a watchghost that is in the Underdark near Shadowdale? I'm drawing a huge blank here ...

Underdark? She's not in the Underdark.

Hint: It would take more than 30 pieces of silver to get past the door she guards.

"Land under Shadow" isn't the Underdark region beneath/around Shadowdale? ... Curiouser and curiouser.

What a library somewhere in Canada???

I think your question might be too hard, Eric, since none of us seem to be able to answer it. I tried looking on my very incomplete database of references and found no reference to "Ilsheen" or "Ieiridauna Amalree". A reference to Elminster is way too general (IMHO) and the phrase "Lands Under Shadow" crops up in the Shadowdale booklet from the second gray box to refer to Shadowdale when it was under drow occupation. So, I'm completely stuck... is this in some rather obscure sourcebook or Dragon magazine, or is in one of the novels (which I have never even considered reading I'm afraid)?

Ilsheen is a watchghost (hence the "watch") described in Dungeon #30 (hence the "dungeon" and "30 pieces of silver"), page 20, in an adventure by Ed Greenwood (hence the "Sage of Greenwood") entitled "Elminster's Back Door" (hence the "door"). I think she was the first watchghost to appear in print. This is one of two adventures (I think) that Ed Greewood has written for Dungeon.

The "Land Under Shadow" is a poetic reference to Shadowdale (really referring to the region when it was ruled by the drow, see Cormanthyr).

Ieiridauna Amalree is a watchghost, also created by Ed Greenwood, who guards the mansion of Mirt the Moneylender. She appears in Elminster's Daughter, Hand of Fire, and here: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=books/fr/ieiridaunacp. Their descriptions are quite reminiscent of one another.

Someone else throw out a question.

Whoah! Pretty cryptic, Eric
I dont own many issues of Dungeon at all, so despite my large FR collection, I doubt I would have got the answer.
