Not for very long, so keep the questions coming!



Hmmm its been more than 6-7 days

I hope Hooded one hasnt been "Holidaying" in one of those charming places where the locals tend to shoot at you again........

I know, I've been pondering this myself and thought to myself more then once that it's been a bit longer then what THO said when they went on vaca....

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

To THO & ED,
I can't wait for your return! Hopefully then my goal to overwhelm you guys with questions will be met. This post, my question is 'why do sages call the Seven Citadels War so'? And I was wondering if you had any lorebits on the transition of Dlardrageth and other evil cambion (do you like that archaic [2ed] term?) property to the normal elves of siluvanede. Specifically these hidden caches... I know that after Eaerlann uncovered and decimated House Dlardrageth the property found its way into the hands of other Siluvanedenn elves. How exactly did the different personas of Siluvanede interact with each other throughout that kingdom's history?
For example, there is the mythal-city that puts itself in stasis because of the acts of other Siluvaneden elves, like the Dlardrageths. The earliest Siluvanedenn must have been very proud or maybe even good natured only falling to corruption later.
Any info would help a tonne!

Well met

Indeed, I grew concerned of late and made an attempt to contact The Hooded One. No response thus far, but i'm sure she'll grace us with her lovely presence soon enough

Hello again, fellow scribes. (Didja miss me? Well, I'm BAAAAACK!) Ahem.
Hearken once again to the words of Ed, who makes reply to Gillies re. this request: “Hey Ed and THO, Its me again. I'm wondering even though I haven't found a DnD group to play with, would it be a smart idea to get the players handbook and the monster manual and some dice? So maybe I can start making my character and such.”
Ed replies:



Gillies, if I were you, I’d go to the Avid Reader in Cobourg and see if Wendy has the Players Handbook and current issues of DRAGON and DUNGEON in. Even if the PH isn’t “in stock” (she’ll order it in if you want, or J&B in Trenton or some of the shops in Oshawa will have much larger selections always in stock), I’d buy the DRAGON and DUNGEON and take them home to drool over and “get the feel” of the game and adventures.
In a “story” or heavy roleplaying game of the sort I run, knowing your character’s “back story” and so being able to think and act as they would, and using only the knowledge and attitudes they would have, is crucial.
However, the game can be played in many different ways, and some DMs don’t give a hoot about such things, and play becomes like a football game, with the players huddling between combat rounds to discuss who should cast which spell, who else should use which battle tactic this round, and so on.
I personally am of the opinion that long-lived, vivid campaigns MUST be heavy roleplaying (or they will never become long-lived, or consistently vivid), but to enjoy such a play experience you’ve got to have a DM and fellow players who “buy in” to the same view. It can be a real emotional wrench if you spend hours upon hours detailing a character, only to have a DM laughingly kill such a character in a brute-force, “you stepped in the wrong place ha ha you die” trap, two minutes after play begins.
One of my personal benefits from creating the Realms has been the ability to “walk around the world” and explore it, spinning stories of what happened, what mysteries characters ponder, and what may happen next in endless daydreaming fantasies. That’s something you can certainly indulge in, while looking for folks to play with. I would consult the scribes here for the links to the free downloads of past Realms products that lurk on the Wizards site (and elsewhere), and peruse these for hours of fun reading (don’t worry about the game stats, just names and places and lore).
And have fun!



So saith Ed, who’s incurably in love with D&D and the Realms.
I’m afraid he’s not “back yet” from the Dreaded Deadline Doom, and will be able to reply only sporadically over the next week or so. So I’m snatching the opportunity to do lots of little work side-errands that have been piling up, and may be a day or two tardy in peeking into Candlekeep for your latest posts. Yet, please, keep them coming: we’ll get back up to speed as soon as we can!
love to all,
THO

Could you clear something up posted in Wizards forum, the poster asked why aren't celestials summoned as regularly as fiendish creatures. I said fiendish crestures have their own agenda for accepting summons unless yoked up by a Cadderly type person. I also said that higher intelligent celestial are fulfilling their own duties usually at the request of a higher power or deity. And more to the point that these more powerful celestials would not care to be called at the whim of humaniods and even might become angry if forced to do bidding such as in Gate spell.

Another poster said he summoned Solars when he was engaged with Pit Fiends and the like and that they are lawful good and therefore more than willing to assist him especially against fiends. I said Soalrs in particular would be bothered by this becuase it reads as if they directly serve deities and leave such things to their other brethren and being summoned by a mortal whenever he decides he's in over his head would definitely be an issue for them. I also haven't read to much about celestials especially solars in Faerun and assume that they don't frequent it too often and if so to a select few. I wrote that knowledge of them and their activities wouldn't be so easy to come by and the other poster disagrees and feel's an angel is an angel and everyone knows they fight fiends and thats enough to go on as well as giving them a judeo-christian comparision.

What's the creator outlook on these beings in Faerun in Particular solars?

Thanks

Welcome back Ed and THO,

I was wondering for Ed, if he had any ideas of games being runned in my area looking for a new player? Or maybe he could give me the tips of the trade to become a DM. Again thanks for the answers to my questions and I can't wait to hear back.

Greetings Ed, THO and esteemed scribes of Candlekeep..

Thanks for continuing to create such a wonderfully vibrant campaign world for us to enjoy.

Just a quick question.. I've been hunting through and havent seen it answered yet (but its possible I missed it)

What role does the High Imperceptor of Bane play in the current status quo of the Church of Bane? Is there any possibility of getting some more detail on the current heirarchy of the Church of Bane in the Moonsea region?

[edited: just one more thing]
What is the status of the (former?)Lords of the council Zhentil Keep? Lord Payr'adar and Lord Halaster survived but who did Manshoon save from the destruction of Zhentil Keep and what are they up to?

Thanks very much, keep up the fantastic work

Cheers



Just wanted to let you know I've since found my answers to the first part of my question (High Imperceptor part) but I am still interested in the second part of my question concerning Zhentish nobles whenever you may get some time oh great sagely one..

Hello, I've just spent the last three weeks reading the 04,05, and up to present Q&A threads with Ed. Tons of fun info and just amazed with Ed as a person and an answer font. I will hopefully beable to now read more of the threads here since I am finished with these three.

My question(and I am strictly a 1e&2e player)If a prest were to have their holy symbol tatooed on their body in a consicrated ceremony in their church would said tatoo work as a holy symbol for turning and spell casting. Like say having sait tatoo on the back of their hand or palm and not wearing gauntlets.

Thanks

Greetings to Her of the Hood, and Just Ed of the Green Wood. Kindest thanks to you both for helping us to know Faerûn better. I have a few questions, regarding elves in the Realms.

First, is the word "ardavanshee" singular or plural (or both) in construction? And is it gender-specific? Is the useage limited to "citified" elves, as in Myth Drannor, Evereska, and the towns of Evermeet, or would the green elves in their hidden glades call their delinquent youth by this term as well?

Second, regarding those aforesaid green elves: Am I correct in assuming that, however "primitive" their woodland societies may seem by comparison to the high civilizations of Evereska and Evermeet, green elven culture has its own richness of traditions and customs that in its own way rivals that of their less reclusive cousins? What are some noteworthy features of wild elf culture, in various areas of Faerûn?

Third, imagine a young lore-singer of a remote green-elf tribe who, led by visions and the decrees of his tribe's seers, sets out to familiarize himself with the other cultures of the Realms, and enrolls in the bardic college at Silverymoon. Obviously, he would have little coin for tuition. Are scholarships available? Would the tales and songs of his own people (mostly unknown even to other elves) be valued enough to help pay his way?

And finally, how would the locals be apt to react in Alustriel's city when said elf stubbornly preferrs to go naked, or in as little as the climate permits, and forsakes his dormitory cot to sleep in some accomodating tree, and occasionally catch his own lunch if he spies a juicy rabbit? Would the constabulary object? (Yes, this is my character - I simply am curious as to how the locals might respond in Ed's Realms).

Best of luck to Ed in unearthing himself from an avalanche of deadlines, NDA's, and other busy-ness, and to Her Hooded Grace in avoiding gunshot wounds and hot pursuits in inconveniently long gowns!

The Hooded One,

I finished City of Splendors and Best of the Realms 2 recently. Please pass on a short note to Master Greenwood to let him know how throughly I enjoyed both novels. Especially BotR! I'm now on to Swords of Eveningstar, which I was astonished to find my library system has in hard cover!

As I persive the ruling for 2e I would say "yes" if the ceremony was held by a high ranking priest and this was accepted by the church as a holy symbol, But in 3.5e tieflings and asmirs can have tatoos so I would say either the DM make a ruling or make it a house rule as I know not of any official ruling.

If you are still unsure then by all means wait for Ed or THO to reply.....

I just try to help!

Dearest Ed and the Hooded Lady, I'm looking for any and all descriptive information on the city of Proskur. I've the little information from the various Campaign Settings and the information about the Thayan Enclave from Lords of Darkness, but there doesn't seem to be anything describing the city in more detail than that.

Anything you care to share would be welcome! Thanks!

Thanks for the opinion. My gaming group has been doing that for a while with a few faiths (Tempus, Lathander and Tymora not sure why with just those three) and was wondering how that would be reacted to if those characters were brought into any other game.

Glad to help,
in ans to your question,
That would depend on the DM but I see it as no problem, it can be explained that the chars are special envoys of their church, members of an in church organization a inner sanctum brotherhood or something with a little imagination all is workable!!

Hi, I’m not sure about the rules about bumping up a question but I asked this on page 58 and shortly afterward THO went away, Ed has heavy deadlines and THO asked the question “what would you like to see”

I hate nagging and don’t mean too...I would just really like an answer (if it is available) for my project and I’m afraid that my question got lost in the excitement

When you first designed the maps for Faerun did you add or make any notes on the weather systems? Especially the prevalent winds (wind belts and jet streams) and ocean currents (for the inner sea and the outer oceans)? Do you know of anyone that has done so? And if you did, did you place the forests and such in consideration of winds and precipitation?

I am trying to build a few maps, especially pre-Sundering global maps...and it would really help!



As the planet rotates like Earth, I’m guessing the prevalent winds are the same? Ans where is Toril's equator?

Thank you very much

To quote our lovely Lady Hooded One, from page 14 of this thread:

quote:
Originally posted by The Hooded One

Oh, Ed knows that, all right.
His problem is threefold:
1. Total lack of time. Ed is actively writing or editing SIX projects (plus yours) right now, with another eleven sitting on his desk staring mutely at him, waiting. This means he just CAN’T go off into the basement (or the library of diskettes and Zip disks in his study, either), looking up older Realmslore. It also means he often has to drop everything to deal with emergencies (and the recent WotC layoffs have spawned a lot of those). Ed loves to answer your questions, but he’s as busy as the head of any major company or country - - without having any staff to support him. That means some of the larger-scope questions, or the really, really obscure points, just have to wait.
2. The minefield of constantly-shifting NDAs, and unfolding WotC and Paizo projects and articles Ed is aware of, but can’t publicly talk about. And doesn’t want to screw up. Many scribes ask about matters that a lot of Realms fans have wanted “cleared up” long ago. Other scribes ask about interesting things unfolding in recent books (e.g. the Shadovar). Still others ask about basics (agricultural practices, land-law). All of these things SHOULD be answered, and Ed wants to, but often other folks are already at work on answers, or MIGHT answer them as their novel or game sourcebook tromps through relevant real estate, or uses relevant NPCs. So Ed is duty-bound (and legally bound) to keep quiet. Sometimes even admitting that he’s keeping quiet will tip off Realms fans about something in the future that shouldn’t be revealed yet. So he waits…and waits…
3. Rules queries that shouldn’t be directed to Ed in the first place. You know, the “let’s use Ed’s opinion as a weapon in my ongoing argument about X” requests.
4. Questions about the gods, ditto. Yes, Ed created the great majority of deities specific to the FR setting. Yes, he detailed them, and provided spells for them. No, he’s never had the chance to put into print their prayers and rituals properly, or what daily life is like both for a humble priest and for an ambitious upperpriest in the upper echelons of church hierarchy. Yes, he wants to. No, he can’t move on this without WotC cooperation. And everyone, from other fiction writers to WotC designers to every FR fan, has their own, different - - often fiercely different - - ideas of what’s “right” and “true” about the gods. To Ed, most of this (arguing about the Dawn Cataclysm, for example, or Eilistraee) is just like arguing about the weather: fun (when it doesn’t turn nasty), but ultimately useless to the roleplaying experience (mortals can never know the truth, so the truth doesn’t matter: what matters is what priests and fiathful worshippers IN THE REALMS think). And so on. Yes, these are basics I’m reiterating, but it’s time to repeat them for all. Ed has a huge electronic file of ALL the queries not yet fully answered that have been posed in this thread. Not one gets forgotten, and Ed tries to answer one a day no matter how busy he is. So he’ll get to them, unless the gods take him from us first. Promise.
(No matter how lovingly I have to persuade him. And you know how lovingly THAT can be.)
love to all,
THO
