If you are looking into older (2nd edition) material, Kyristan was originally featured (although only by reference) in the somewhat quirky solo-adventure HHQ2 - Wizard's Challenge (available from Paizo as a download). Darsson was created as the offspring of another of the mages featured in the module, Dar Malson. It's not Realms material, strictly speaking, but it may add some flavor.

There's a small article on the Wizards' Website by Sean K. Reynolds. It details a few spells by Nybor, and gives some history (including date of demise). Also, interestingly, Nybor appears to be / have been a "she" .

Snilloc was a creation of Andy Collins (or so I have been told), and therefore one guess as to where the name came from...

Refractions of purple lightning emerged from his spell mantle after the Magelord's spell hit. It was a shame that he would be dead before he even let his next spell fly.

Ah, always lurking below the surface in Candlekeep, but in the Realms since 1988 :-) . The good old times, the Grey Box, the thrill of reading "Spellfire" for the first time.

Damn, I'm old

Did he come from the same place as the hordes of Trebors and Nybors who infest the multiverse?

Hope this has been useful.

Useful? Blimey, George, I should say so! One of my players happened to mention Agannazar just two days ago, and here you have unfolded his c.v. for me. Bravo!

Now ... how's about further info on Presper and Grimwald, please? The impression I have received from LEoF is that the desertion of the perfiidious elves doomed Phalorm. It would be beneficial to learn more of the wizards who supported it.

A Real-World Postscript: "Snilloc" is the creation of TSR and now WotC staffer Andy Collins (read the name backwards).



Not to disagree with THO, but Snilloc long predates Andy Collins' involvement in gaming and the Realms. I believe there was a Mr. Dave Collins who was a long-time friend of Jeff Grubb. Dave owned a house on Lake Geneva and 'twas this Collins who generated the snowball spells that shared his wizard's name of Snilloc (way back in FR Adventures might've been the first appearance).

Did he also come up with Snilloc's Cream Pie? 'Twas mentioned in that same spell entry, and later used by Danilo Thann ("Dessert was, of course, on them.").

First five you wrote were of course known to me, but I have heard perhaps of one third of those names in the long list...

Ayup.
