Hello Eric,

In the Waterdeep accessory, Madeiron Sunderstone is said to have the same blood line as the Hartwick's from Hartsvale. It is a good explanation to his great size and strength. It's the firest time, it had been mentionted. Is that something you came up with or has that always been a part of his backstory? Also, it said he had a long and varied career as an adventurer in the Inner Seal lands. Are there any highlights to that career you can expound upon? Thanks in advance.

Eric,

Would you consider Volumvax, from page 173 of Faiths & Pantheons, basically a proxy of Shar since he has a divine rank of 0, which is what proxies have in 3/3.5e. Or is he something else?

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

While speaking of Chaulssin, has any specific date of the return of the Spider Queen been set as yet (given the recent discussion on the timeline of 1373/74) and will this date become known before any printed sourcebook tells us the "exact" history of Lolth's Silence?

Dear Eric,

I know that there is a NDA limiting what you can say, but within the limit of your freedom, could you tell us what a DM should think about when putting a group together for the "Cormyr - Shadowdale - ?" campaign arc?

The first book is coming out next march and I was thinking that it would be neat to have my players start new characters now, so that they reach level 4 by the time "Tearing of the Weave" is out (we're slow).

I am not asking for any major discosure on the modules, just some pointers about fitting alignments and affiliations. Things to avoid, maybe. It's really just to make sure that I don't end up with a bunch of players with unfit characters for the campaign arc when we get there.

I know it's a tough one (NDA and all), so I'll be happy with anything you can think of and share. Thanks a lot in advance.

You might find what you are looking for in "Faiths and Pantheons", a 3.0 FR book on deities.

There is such a Prestige Class there.

Have fun!

Will someone please point me towards a listing of the Dragon magazines which had Age of Worms articles in them? I am trying to piece together the Dungeon series, but it's not always easy to find which Dragon corresponds to what Dungeon.


I have a mouth, but I am in a library and must not scream.

I was going to ask Eric this, but I am open to any opinion. Would the child of a Fey'ri or a Celadrin with a half-elf have any chance of being a planetouched elf or would they only be a regular elf?

Thanks.

Thank you, Sage. That's exactly what I needed. I'm going to note the URL for DragonDex for future reference!

Eric,

In "The Spire of Long Shadows" FR adapdation notes, you speak of maps of Longsaddle and the Tower of Twilight in "Volo's Guide to the North" and "The North", downloadable online, etc.

All I can find is the overland map showing the two locations of the above places, but nothing showing an actual 'map' or 'layout' of the Tower of Twilight (the map of Longsaddle "is" present though, and the Ivy Mansion is shown in the FR Atlas, so that's good... all I need is a layout of the ol' archmage's Tower! :) )

Eric or Eytain,

Is this an error in Dragons of Faerun? Shoon VII, on page 21, is listed as a lich and not a demilich. However, he's been listed as a demilich in 2e and some early 3/3.5 material.

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

The Hartsvale link was my own invention. If you look at the write-up of the axe of heavenly fire, you see that I tied it's creation to the Abbey of the Just Hammer in the Dalelands. The "Inner Sea" adventurer note, IIRC, was to explain how he wandered in that direction.
