This has been asked repeatedly on the WOTC boards. Rich Baker has said that WOTC has no plans on expanded to the other continents, however, Dragon will be doing a yearly issue on the old settings that should have updated info.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Hello, all. The Hooded One here again, with more Realmslore tidbits from the Creator of our sandbox, Ed of the Greenwood himself.

malchor7, Ed tells me he knows of absolutely no Realms fiction plans featuring Castellan Scyllua Darkhope - - but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any, because Books Publishing at WotC doesn’t tell him everything about projects he’s not directly working on.
If he DID know, he adds, he’d probably be able to tell you nothing, thanks to NDAs.

George Krashos, Ed tells me a glowhammer is indeed a magic item, description owned by TSR (and so, now, WotC) but obviously shelved by them long ago. They own it, so Ed will have to find some way to sneak it into an ‘official’ publication, somehow, to get it into the hands of scribes. It’s basically, from what little I recall from play, a war hammer that glows upon command, and can also be released and commanded to ‘stay’ (whereupon it floats in midair, unmoving, until touched by the one who so set it again, or by someone else (like a dwarf elder of the same clan) who knows its secret ‘release’ word. Ed will get to your other Dwarves Deep queries as soon as he can (which is to say, in the fullness of time). So, no, it wasn’t a typo for glowstone. :}

Dargoth, on page 19 of the 2004 Questions for Ed Greenwood thread are Ed’s comments (relayed through me) about this mini-dungeon. As far as I remember, this Archmage isn’t Shraevyn.

And that’s a grab-bag for today. Expect more Realmslore on the morrow.
love to all,
THO

Well met again,

I'm sure that Ed hasn't forgotten about my old (and maybe too general) question about the festivities of Silverymoon. I'd also like to say that some of the answers have been beautiful. The one about the Magefair was awesome if I must pick one.

Meanwhile, I'd like to make a quick one, in the style of the "top ten things that...", but in a different way: I'll ask for two top fives:
  • What would be the top five tips that Ed would give to a DM,
  • and what would be the top five tips he would give to a Realms DM?
I really hope that this question requires less works than the previous one.

Thanks beforehand.

David, Ed hasn't forgotten your question, although he did mention to me that he'd have to leave some details out due to NDAs, and all the purely faith-based observances out because he doesn't have a year of his life to spare just now.
However, he IS working on it. I'll fire your next one his way pronto. He'll probably answer it first.

I wanted to say that I will be moving soon. So I am trying to get some of my questions out while I have a computer, so I might post a couple. If I do get an answer, it would be helpful if one of the fellow readers of this thread could e-mail the answer to me at corpse_king_2000@yahoo.com. As I might not have internet for a while. But I can pick up my e-mails at the Public Library. (An extra use in addition as a source for FR novels.

Thanks and here are the questions.

1) I know I might be going a little obessive, but here's another Finder question. What locations in Faerun might be the best places to build up the faith of Finder and which areas might be trouble spots for an adventuring cleric of the faith? I can see the Moonsea as a trouble area, and perhaps the Dales and Cormyr having a more nurturing atmosphere. But what areas would have the strong pull.
2)Can you tell us more about the Enclave of Opus in the Gates of the Moon? Or is it in the NDA area? Could at least tell us if the spell that might return the city as part of the plot hook in Lost Empires would alter the Native plane of the Aasimar in the city from the Gates to Toril? Or would they still get banished back to the Celestial plane?
3) I forget the name of the Demon that was created just to serve Lolth, (Yochol?), but has there been an attempt by other dieties (Good, Evil, Chaos, Lawful and Neutral) to mold Outsiders into a Diety linked servant? (Or perhaps even groups of dieties, like the Gods of the Triad molding Archons into a special servator)? <If there was ever a planecentric accessories for FR, that might be an interesting addition>

Well, that's all I have at this time. Thanks alot and I hope you are in good humours. Thanks again.

No not a question this time! a Suggestion!

Paul Kemp recently released his Sample chapter for the last WOSQ which provides quite alot of detail for the new Cosmology.

Which got me thinking

While I am still hoping WOTC will eventually do a Manual of the Planes for the FR.....

but if thats not going to happan any time soon how about giving the FR Novel department a shot at detailing the new cosmology through stories

A couple of Ideas

Realms of Planes Anthology: where each author writes a story some how related to the FR Planes either set there or dealing with the gods (An oppertunity to detail Banes come back!) or featuring a Planetouch or Half Celestial/Fiend Hero or Villian

Or

Realms of the Faithful an anthology which features a Cleric of a different deity in each story it could tie in with the Cleric series of Novels..... (After all why should the Cleric novels be restricted to the Evil chicks!)

A short list of stories I wouldnt mind seeing

Banes return (yeah I know there will only be 20 pages but its better than nothing!)

A story set on that Netherese city that floats above Selunes realm

Story of Bane, Bhaal and Mykruls fight with Borem (or any story that features them as mortals)

A Story about the Devils in the Ruins of Myth Drannor

“I am the King of Rome, and above grammar”

Should I take this to mean pronounciation's kinda up in the air? Or is there somewhere I can look (game product and/or the multiverse-spanning reaches of Ed's mind) for a specific turn of phrase? :-)

Now that you mention it, I think a novel about Scyllua (or featuring Scyllua) would be quite cool. She's one of my favorite villains.

As could anyone, given a shapechange spell. Ah, the joys of being an archmage. Certain archmages have been known to produce a fair amount of havoc by changing into one dragon, releasing a breath weapon, changing into another on the next round, releasing another breath weapon, etc., etc., particularly if they "share spells" with their familiar (two dragons, two breaths).


Yes but Sylune's was not a shapechange spell it was a specific power she had as a Chosen.



Conceded. :-)

As far as I know they have never been mentioned outside of the CotD accessory, and even there they were only briefly mentioned.

As for detailing them yourself, far be it from me to speak for Ed, but by all means. That is entirely in keeping with the spirit of the game!!



Thank you!

Hi Ed,

After re-reading Elminster in Hell recently, i had a quick question i wanted to ask (and i know Ed is quite the authority on the Nine Hells too)...

Clearly there's a Lucfier in Realms cosmology, as you reference him in your novel, but obviously he can't be the Lucifer we all understand from Christian Mythology. So who is the Realms' Lucifer and what happened to him?

To malchor7, re:

Nope. It just means Ed hasn’t gotten to that one yet.
He’s so buried under lore queries from me (you folks), WotC staffers, various freelance designers working for WotC, and librarians (about library stuff, not the Realms), to say nothing of local debates in his village re. sewage treatment (no, I’m not making this up; I wish I was!), that he can’t always look at queries from the same scribe and combine them. Sometimes they just go on the pile, and get done as he comes to them. No longer in chronological order, but more often in ease of answering/finding his lore notes order. Just now, he has family visiting for Easter, and I understand he’s been drawing maps recently. He’ll get to Darkhope, I promise.

Luciger in the realms was an archdevil that was given the " final doom" by Asmodeus because he sired an archdevil that he thought to keep hidden from the lord of the ninth(not a very efficient strategy since asmodeus killed him and ate the kid)

If someone from the editorial team at WotC is reading this I'd like to make one suggestion: please, don't edit the street names if they are city maps. Printing technology has advanced a lot since the beginning of the published Realms and it would be nice to have them for background and reference.

And thanks for the prompt answer THO, both you and Ed are doing a great work here.

Ed, I have a question about the "magical road" that extends between Longsaddle and Nesmé (constructed either wholly or in large part by the Harpell family of the former town) -- what exactly does this road look like/are its functions, etc?

Also, Tall Trees, is that section of the High Forest more in the north part of the wood, the east, the west?

Many thanks, and sweet water and light laughter till next you speak,

Hello, all. Ed replies to a certain questioner:



Dargoth, in reply to your queries about specific mysterious map locales, let’s look at the list:
Dreamers Rock: Garen Thal has dealt ably with this for you already.
Golden Ruins: NDA
Temple of Chonis: NDA
Tomb of Chonis: NDA
"Unknown Shrine:" NDA
Sorry, but I can’t comment on these at the present time (hint, hint).
Dargoth, I’d be VERY cautious in relating the Witchlords of Cormyr to the WitchKing of Vaasa (which should tell you just how unlikely it is that there’s a connection, right there :}), and there’s NO WAY a Temple of Orcus would be sitting in Cormyr MARKED ON A MAP. (Ruins of a former temple, maybe. Just maybe.)



So saith Ed. Emphatically enough, I might add!
And as for pegging me for Illistyl Elventree: dear, a lady never tells (and neither do wanton sluts like me!)
And neither Ed nor I have the faintest what Illistyl’s “official” WotC 3.5e stats would be. Her ORIGINAL stats described her psionics as a “wild talent,” and Ed and I suppose we might go that route in 3.5e (the Wild Talent feat or its Hidden Talent expanded version) - - but then again, the question is largely meaningless because Ed still runs Psionics with the original rules plus the ‘Mind Wrestling’ internal unpublished TSR notes from 1978 to 1979 or so (akin to the DRAGON article from - - if memory serves me correctly - - issue 25), which in 3.5e terms is an approach to psionics very close to the EXPANDED PSIONICS HANDBOOK “Psionics is Different” Variant (in Ed’s Realms, of course, it’s not a ‘variant’ at all, but the original, unchanged governing psionics rules).
Once again, we see the difference highlighted, between a rules-heavy “crunch” game sold to many, and a roleplaying-heavy campaign played by friends who agree to just let the DM ‘paint the picture’ rather than rules-lawyering. We really do treat the rules as “guidelines.” Ah, well.
More next time, of course.
love to all,
THO

Hi THO! Got a question for Ed - altho any memories you have would be welcomed as well!

OK Ed, got a REASONABLY specific question about town governing for you. The base of operations for my PCs is the town of Nathlekh, North of the Shining Plains. I've got the population pegged at 5,000 adults, and I've decided that 4 noble families rule as an Oligarchy, with one family head being "the First" every 2 years responsible for the town's welfare, and this rotates through the 4 families.

So...I'm trying to discover the most "Realms" way to figure how the city guards, watch, customs, and tax collecting would work. Obviously each noble family has a force of men-at-arms, house wizards and clerics for their own protection - but how do they go about defending the town? I'm presuming the gate guards, the town watch and the tax collectors would answer to the Oligarchy - but how would that evince in the daily life of the town so that the PCs could reasonably figure it out? How would the nobles set up the town judiciary? Who pays, equips and administers the troops and the watch? I've looked through your "Elminster speaks" columns for clues, but most of the areas mentioned are much larger in population.

Is it reasonable to think the 4 houses would only trust ONE house with overall town defense? Tax collection? Day-to-day administration? I could see where fines and labor would be used commonly to handle crimes and ensure a labor pool for "dirty work" around the town ;). I guess if you could give a few realms pointers as to how *you* would set this up - given this specific situation I'd appreciate it!

And thanks always for your help THO!

Hello, all. Ed of the Greenwood hereafter makes reply to Taelohn’s query of “Hm... when someone is named after a deity (such as Torm), does that mean that his divine nakesake (who hears his name whenever it's spoken) would have his attention drawn to this mortal again and again?
(Or in the case of a girl named Seluneshar, mentioned in one of the Elminster novels... the attention of two deities?)”



Yes and no. Or, to put that a little more clearly: yes, a deity hears whenever anyone addresses a namesake mortal by name (and, yes, both Selűne and Shar would hear when the lass named Seluneshar was named), but this babble goes on ALL the time (prayers, remember), for the vast majority of deities, in a ceaseless thunder. They learn to tune it out, or quickly go mad (Cyric, anyone?). So they’re aware of all these “callings” in the background, and will notice peaks, breaks, and changes in the frequency, tone, and amount of mortal utterances of their name - - but will only ‘zero in’ on a particular voice when they want to.
If, say, Torm the god took an interest in Torm the smart-mouthed Knight of Myth Drannor (as entertainment, perhaps), Torm the god could ‘set his feelers’ to ‘listen properly’ to utterances of his name addressed to this mortal (or to any particular mortal not directly protected by another deity; that is, not including clergy or champions of another god, but very much including his own priests), and pay heed to those conversations only, using his other powers to “listen in” on lengthy conversations once he’s detected them.
Most deities ignore mortal callings unless or until they’re bored, upset, interested in learning something or regard a situation as a crisis that MUST be responded to. If someone named for them blasphemes them often, they might just send a manifestation of their power to chastise, make a public example of, or destroy the mocking mortal. Most mature deities don’t bother, but merely make note of such mortals with an eye to ‘using’ them for a greater or more useful purpose in time to come.



So saith Ed. Who is a god himself, of course. The God of Bearded Overweight Sex, at the moment, I believe . . . ahem. If I fall silent, you’ll know he heard me.
love to all,
THO

Assuming we're talking about the same Orcus, he's the Demon Prince of the Undead, near demigod in status -- bitter enemy of Kiaranslee, who killed him and took his realm (Thanatos, I believe?) until Orcus was animated (not revived, per se) as an undead demon prince and drove her out.

(Aside: And wouldn't it suck if HE became a deity and then heard his name everytime someone pronounced "orc"?)

Thank you, by the way, for your service on this thread, Milady THO -- it is invaluable.

They'd likely have to pronounce the whole word (and his sensory powers might not function beyond the Abyss, unless he were summoned to the Prime). At any rate, in many versions of the game, Orcus (like many of the demon princes) actually was a god (or at least as powerful as one).

And then there was Asmodeus... as powerful as a greater deity, yet merely an avatar (one of up to 10) of something more - lying wounded beneath Nessus, its fall created Hell and its blood created the first devils. If it ever consumed enough souls to heal itself, such a being would be of overpower status.

... then in 3E they retconned all the archfiends to be weak enough for a party of level 20/low-epic mortals to take them down. So much so that, based on the official WotC stats, Kurtulmak the kobold god could single-handedly destroy Asmodeus, plus all the Lords of the Nine, plus every pit fiend they could bring to bear against him... by himself.

To say nothing of what Mystra could do... which was why I was quite pleased by how she was portrayed in Elminster in Hell (mind-blowingly powerful, yet not completely invincible), and how Asmodeus was given his credit (he heard his name when it was spoken on Avernus, it was shown that he could kill people on Avernus without needing to leave Nessus, and even Mystra only managed to daze him).

Actually he was a deity, at least in FR, up to Faiths & Pantheons for 3e. Then the Player's Guide retconned his deity status back to a demon prince. :)

To the poster who asked about Orcus, see the Book of Vile Darkness, The Great Modron March and Dead Gods for Planescape. Also the Bloodstone material from 1e.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
