Well met

I don't think that was what The Hooded One meant, Smyther, she always writes titles in upper case This is indeed a great project which has to be accurate to be of use. I'm very much looking forward to the completed list, so keep up the good work

No chastisement intended, Smyther, I assure you. As Alaundo said, I tend to always render titles in full, and in full caps (usually because I’ve fallen into the habit after ending up confused in one too many of Ed’s complex posts where six or seven novels are being discussed at once. So no, I wasn’t irked.
I just saw “Cormanthor,” went, “Huh?” and thought you’d misread the book badly (if all the dragon scenes and Vangey and two clumsy Zhent agents running around stuff was happening in the depths of Cormanthor, that would be a lousy, inconsistent depiction of Cormanthor on Ed’s part).
And just to show that you’re not the only one, I was replying to you from memory, and could sharpen the precision of my HAND OF FIRE details by adding: Mirt’s Mansion in Waterdeep’s Dock Ward, a flying scene that includes passage over Waterdeep’s Castle Ward, the Maimed Wizard’s mountain-cavern stronghold (precise location unknown, but I can tell you from Realmsplay with Ed that it’s in the Heartlands, specifically “somewhere” in mountains just south of Anauroch), and I neglected to mention that the caravan route much of the novel’s action traverses is the Trade Way, including a visit to the walled town of Triel.
So feel neither newbie nor snubbed, Smyther. I’m soft and cuddly and nice. Er, most of the time.
love,
THO

I've always thought so. Most of the action in Ghostwalker takes place in and around Quaervarr, to be most specific. Best ale in the Realms -- well, really good ale, anyway.

If I remember correctly (not having read it, but heard from a friend), the trilogy that starts with Uneasy Alliances takes place in and around Netheril, but don't quote me on that.


No worries about spoiling it... I've got the basic gist of what happens.
As for Uneasy Alliances, you're thinking of the Netheril trilogy (Sword Play, Dangerous Games, Mortal Consequences) - Uneasy Alliances et all are the last three books in the Double Diamond series - the others have been covered.

So sayeth the Smyther, the Dark Bard of Amn.

Ah, that's the one. See what happens when your kid brother reads a series and gives you wrong information about it? Tsch.

Yes, the Whistling Stag, one of the finest inns in the North, known for its ale, its atmosphere, and the wall-length tapestry that decorates its side -- a beautiful rendition of an elven hunt. Definitely features in the novel.

But we shouldn't hijack Smyther's thread. Check out my thread in the Chamber for more info! I'm happy to answer any and all questions I can answer.

You're welcome. Good luck with the project.

The Hooded One is also very helpful, especially when it comes to Ed Greenwood's novels.

*Update*
Thank you to all who are so readily participating! This is progressing futher and futher. As for the lovely lady Hooded One, all is forgiven. A misunderstanding, to be true. However, once we have the basics, then we can go into more explicit detail. Any extra detail is always welcomed at the moment, of course, but there is only so much people can be expected to do.

Well, here is the updated to-do list for page 3:

Viper's Kiss: As I recall, set entirely in Sespech, specifically Mimph (sp?) and Ormpetarr.

I've just finished Star of Cursrah... which is set in the buried city of Cursrah in Calimshan.

I'm on to The Nether Scrolls next, which i'd take a guess at being set in current Anauroch. However, if it plays like Star of Cursrah, then it could have alternate timeline chapters (one being present day Anauroch and one being set in the past in Netheril). I'll confirm in a few days.

Extinction: was set in the Menzoberranzan, Velarswood, Cormanthor, and the Cold Field to start. I know I'm leaving off some other locations. Can another scribe help close the gap for this novel?

I was wrong about The Nether Scrolls - it's actually set in Weathercote Wood and Dekanter....so far.

*Update*

Some novel sections were filled in, others with only a few. Once we get the above list completed, we can get down to the refinements.
Started reading Vampire of the Mists on monday - it's an EXCELLENT book, and even starts out in the realms, but mostly tells the tale in Barovia of Ravenloft. I think I might include it, as it tells of Waterdeep and the Asylum. Thoughts? Any other novels that have parts in the realms, but under a different series?

One of the books from the Cloakmaster Cycle from the Spelljammer series was partially set in the Realms...

? Only one post since the last update? I suppose I could add the two non-realms books.

We still have Curse of the Shadow Mage, Temptation of Elminster, Murder in Halruaa, and the Simbul's Gift to go. In addition, there are the last three in the Double Diamond series: Uneasy Alliances, Easy Betrayals, and the Diamond, and the first ones don't have much information on them anyway. I was going to read the Pools trilogy and fill it in myself, but I've got a little sidetracked by other books, so we only need Pools of Darkness and Pool of Twilight to complete the list and begin the refining process.

I want to say that Curse of the Shadowmage was mostly in Iriaebor, but it's been years since I've read it and I don't ever intend to reread it. It's been a while since I read Temptation of Elminster, too, but I *think* it happened mostly in Myth Drannor.

Anything more to add than a few of Wooly's thoughts? We've very little to go now, and then I can type up version 1.0 of the list.

"Temptation of Elminster" starts in Myth Drannor then travels to the cities of the Wizards Reach (south of Aglarond) and finishes on the Dragon Coast near Starmantle.

Great project idea and Elaine's idea of a point and click map even better. Well, as for Bloodwalk, I mentioned on my thread that it's set in the eastern Border Kingdoms, close to the Shaar. That's about as specific as I can be at this point. Hope that helps!

Son of Thunder takes place in the North, and actually includes a fair deal of overland travel, visiting a number of locations a few of which I really shouldn't give away, but given my excerpt in Realms of the Dragons II it is definitely no spoiler to say that large portions of it take place inside the High Forest, hitting a couple of "key sites" therein.
