Thank you Lady and Ed,

As always any reply from Ed opens even more questions but he has provided more than enough in regards to this question and my application of it. BTW the Azuth appearance last friday in game left my players with mouths agape and staring at their cleric like "Ooooooooooooooh, you in trouble."

Thanks again.

Hi again, fellow scribes. This time Ed of the Greenwood responds to Jorkens, re. this query from mid-April: “Good morning Sweet Lady, I have another question for Ed. Looking through some old monsters I came over the Ormyrr again and I started to wonder; what role do these creatures play in the ruins of Myth Drannor and how did they arrive in the area? Are there any more bits of lore about this creature you would be willing to share with us?”
Ed replies:



I’m going to have to dance carefully around some NDAs here and therefore give a necessarily incomplete answer, but let me say this much: the Ormyrr were (or are, depending on how much Myth Drannor has been “tamed” and reoccupied in your campaign) predators among the ruins who survived the passing attacks of demons and devils through cooperation among themselves (ormyrr working together), thoroughly scouting the ruins and knowing where they can take refuge or defend themselves best, and in making use of various local wardings and magical effects among the ruins. I say “passing attacks” because there seems to be something about ormyrr that both demons and devils find . . . distasteful. Not worth fighting or slaying or bothering about, better avoided, and certainly not to be eaten.
The ormyrr came to Myth Drannor in the same way they have appeared elsewhere in Faerűn: through various portals, opportunistically, not as intended or anticipated migrants from . . . elsewhere (they don’t create their own portals, their places of origin remain mysterious, and portal-creators active in the Realms didnn’t expect them to show up).
Which leaves them, yes, rather mysterious. :}



So saith Ed. Ducking and dodging NDAs with grace and agility, all the way.
love to all,
THO

Hello again, all. Finally fought my way back into Candlekeep. Whew. This time I bring you the words of Ed of the Greenwood regarding this query from Kuje: “I was curious about if you could supply some differences between the pirates of the Nelanther Isles and the pirates in the Sea of Fallen Stars and Realmspace pirates. Specifically, I was wondering if you could details some superstitions of the three types, plus any pirate codes that they have? I could use some of Earth's pirate superstitions and codes but some of them make no sense for FR, so I was hoping for some FR answers.”
Scribe Jamallo Kreen then queried what Kuje meant, and Kuje added: “I meant basically a pirate code of conduct. The book I was reading had a sample of a pirate code. I.E. no woman on board, less they were slaves or there to be.... raped. Or an another example, who got what plunder and how much, etc.”
Ed replies:



It’s almost impossible to make accurate general statements about any of those three groups of pirates; they’re such large categories, including many sorts of races of creatures who took up or fell into piracy for so many different reasons, with such a variety of ships. So, let me try. :}
PIRATES OF THE FALLEN STARS gave us a look at the Sea of Fallen Stars pirates, who prey on passing shipping and participate in slaving. These freebooters have a few “friendly” ports (such as Westgate and Teziir at various periods of time) but by and large live as fugitives amongst the islands, fighting among each other only in passing (because they dare not take the time for really wholehearted war amongst themselves, with Sembian and Cormyrean and other naval vessels or hired “banes” (ships whose crews are being paid to hunt pirates) seeking to sink and slaughter them all. So these pirates have strict customs (not written rules or laws, but a code nonetheless, with breakers of that code being shunned by all and attacked by some) governing how they behave towards each other in friendly ports (no-weapons drunken brawls in taverns are acceptable but discouraged, but attacks on ship, cargoes, and armed and deliberate fighting are utter “no-nos”). There are no taboos on women on board in any capacity (and in fact pleasure-boats of whores exist in the Vilhon and in some harbors, as well as female pirates, and female “agents ashore” who keep “safe houses” for injured or sought-after pirates to hide in or hide “too hot” cargoes in, and to act as buying and selling agents and messengers in places where the pirates themselves would be captured or slain outright).
In the Nelanther and in Realmspace, things are far more varied and lawless: there’s far more open water or space, and islands or floating-rock refuges to dwell on and hide among, a huge variety of sailors (from many countries, of many races, and for many reasons [for example, the Nelanther and Realmspace have some pirates that are various sorts of creatures that sail the seas to catch and eat sailors, and care nothing for the ships, which they let sail on, unplundered and uncrewed; that sort of pirate is unheard-of on the Sea of Fallen Stars]) indulging in piracy, and (with the exception of the local rules of a very few “safe haven” ports used as common meeting grounds for repairs, refitting, and the buying and selling of cargoes and hiring new crew) no police or code at all except “what sword and spell dictate.” Again, there are no taboos against females.
All three pirate locales have superstitions involving “ghost ships” that give warning or presage doom when seen, and “dead ships” crewed by skeletons or undead that hunt down and punish those who have broken codes or individual pacts (if your captain promises Reljack Redbeard he’ll not steal from him, and does, “that’s a pact broken, and the gods will know,” the gods being Umberlee, Mask, and others). The problem with trying to say anything useful to you about the pirate codes is that these superstitions are invoked, embroidered, or ignored by pirates for their own purposes, rather than applied with any consistency.



So saith Ed, who is trying not to tie the hands of DMs (and Realms writers and designers) TOO tightly here. Sail on, cutlass in teeth . . .
Oh, one thing: Ed neglected to mention the ships that are floating temples; there’s one dedicated to Loviatar that plies the Lake of Dragons, Vilhon, and Dragon Reach on a dedicated circuit, “looping” at each port of call so faithful can come aboard at midnight, worship aboard (flogging and being flogged, in various holy rituals) for the next day as the ship sails out of the harbor, around in a great arc and back in again, and disembark on the same wharf again, the next midnight. Torm and Sharantyr posed as faithful and went aboard so Torm could plunder (he escaped by the skin of his teeth, not nearly as wealthy as he’d hoped to become) and Sharantyr could see if she liked pain as much as Torm wanted her to (no, but well enough that she forgave him for bringing her along).
Ah, those Knightly adventures of yore . . .
love to all,
THO

I saw something Katherine Kerr said about the differences between the human and elven physioloies on a mailing-list for fans of her Deverry books and thought it'd be interesting to hear how much of that holds true in the Realms, so:

quote:
The differences are based on their long lives. I was thinking, well, in folklore elves live for hundreds of years -- to say nothing of the immortal version as per Tolkien. Yet accidents happen to all of us, and to those who live out in the wilderness areas, they may happen even more frequently. Therefore elves must heal faster (this is brought out in DAGGERSPELL, present time section), fight infection better, and also bleed less from cuts than humans.

I'm postulating that organs like the kidneys and liver, which strain out impurities, must work a thousand times better than ours, too, which would explain the resistance to drink and to poisons (as in Book 4, when the Hawks try to poison Rhodry). Other internal organs, such as the heart, must "self-repair" faster than ours. Those tall if slender frames may have more room inside for a larger heart and lungs.

The liver-kidney function is probably central, though.

Kit


There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

Hello again Mr Greenwood and the fair Hooded Lady.

I've a quick question this time, and it's more of a general musing than a topic that'll need to be statted or researched.

Although Elminster, Manshoon and Szass Tam are clearly at odds, would you imagine there's ever been a situation when they've had a chance at civilised or even friendly debate? I know Manshoon and Elminster have had their share of exchanges, but Tam especially is someone who I wonder at the mindset of. Do you think it likely they could ever sit down and just have a drink? (a bit difficult for a lich, but I expect you can see what I'm getting at).

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I wouldn't like to think of any of them as too shallow as to not hear the other out before blasting them into oblivion.

Come watch the Gentleman's Guide to Gaming!

Hi again, all. Back in November of last year, WalkerNinja posed a question that Ed delayed answering because the contents of the Realms hardcover “super-adventures” (such as CORMYR/The Tearing of the Weave and SHADOWDALE/The Scouring of the Land) weren’t final and “set.” Ed can still respond only in generalizations, rather than naming specific places and characters, but here we go anyway, with WalkerNinja’s straightforward question: “Ed & THO, Are there any active Druidic Circles in the Moonsea region?”
Ed replies:



Yes, despite the strife that has raged in the area. There are two circles in the countryside of the Vast, one in the Border Forest, one that meets north of Deepingdale but has been much weakened by attacks from Sembia, Hillsfar, suspicious elves, and Zhentarim over the years, and one VERY secretive one that works in northern Sembia (among the upland hunting lodges and preserves of wealthy Sembians). The circles in Battledale and eastern Sembia, however, were both exterminated, and the circle that certain druids tried to form in Daggerdale was shattered by hostile agents (of Shade and the Zhentarim).
Unless, of course, you want things to be different in your Realms campaign.



So saith Ed. Who apologizes for having to be so brief and general, but certain things still haven’t “unfolded” yet, that he doesn’t want to contradict.
love to all,

What is the necessity of Druidic circles if it causes druids to be targeted so, are they too stubborn in tradition/rituals to not find ways to succeed without being set upon by so many factions?

Hello again Ed.

Could You please (as in pretty pretty please with the sugar on top) give me the birth dates of Mourngrym Amcathra, Shaerl Rowanmantle and Randal Morn?

Best Regards,

Mandras

PS! Was Shaerl originally a PC character?

PPS! Is the LLairhavenn part of his name a nickname? What does it stand for?

Dear Ed and Lady THO,
I know Ed has contributed to 40 YEARS OF GENCON (Atlas) and HOBBY GAMES: THE 100 BEST (Green Ronin), and that they were both intended for a GenCon Indy 07 release.
Is that still the case? Have you heard anything? Will they both be for sale at the show?
Thanks!

I asked about this at the end of June and Ed said that he couldn't discuss the Green Ronin book until James gave him the okay to do so. :) See Ed's reply in my compiled replies or over on page 43 of this thread. It's halfway down the page.

Indeed. Ed can confirm that the 40 YEARS OF GENCON book will indeed be on sale at the con - - and still doesn't know about HOBBY GAMES: THE 100 BEST. The latter book is, I understand, in the hands of the printer (i.e. it's editorially "done").
So we'll just have to see . . .

And Ed replies lightning-swift to createvmind, re. this: "What is the necessity of Druidic circles if it causes druids to be targeted so, are they too stubborn in tradition/rituals to not find ways to succeed without being set upon by so many factions?"
Ed says:


Many druids don't operate in circles. Circles work best when druids have an ongoing need to consult with (share intelligence with), or get aid from, other druids. Except as "secret societies," they are less useful in densely populated areas. The Dragonreach lands have been a cauldron of competing interests (Dragon Cultists, Red Wizards, Zhents, "good" elves, "evil" elves and others desiring to control Myth Drannor, Hillsfar, Sembia, various Dales, the Harpers, Cormyr, expansionist Archendale, and so on and on), and the druids have all too often been caught in crossfires. However, circles can be VERY useful, and several very successful ones are operating (undercover) in the Sword Coast North right now.


So saith Ed. Who can sing most of "I Am The Very Image of A Personage Druidical" (though it was Ian Hunter, who portrays Lanseril, who composed those G&S-accompanying lyrics, if I recall correctly).

And I would hope that many, many libraries do so. Although any "best of" is by nature subjective (in the same way that there are furious debates about who won, and who "should have won," the Oscars and many other awards), and the book has space limitations (only a hundred games, only a few pages on each, and the line has to be drawn somewhere; Ed tells me Jim Lowder decided that "active" board games such as shove ha'penny, caroms, and crokinole had to be left out), the book is a valuable snapshot of games for the uninitiated: a snapshot that says "here are one hundred darn good games, here's enough about each that you learn what it is and probably if it's for you or your family or gaming group," and a stellar lineup of gaming designers doing the writing (that's the still-secret part, though I suspect Jim would have put in a rule that no one could write about "their own" game).
In short, EVERY public library should buy it. I urge scribes to suggest it to their local library, because I would be delighted if Green Ronin made big bucks off this. All praise is due Mr. Lowder for thinking of it, pitching it, and doing all the editing work.
Hail, Jim!

Poor druids, it would seem rangers often have to try and keep the peace between druids and these factions or choose a side.

What can you tell us of medusa society, both genders and how they function in faerun? Are they beautiful featured beings with snake hair or just like humanoids run the range when it comes to looks, tribal, clannish?

And now, for everyone . . .
Well met again, scribes. This time Ed makes reply to createvmind’s query: “How are Half-dragon humanoids affected by the Rage if it affects them at all?
One of my PC's is a half-dragon/ half-wood elf, Amethyst if I recall correctly and with 1373 looming I'm wondering how to drop hints without dropping hints. He doesn't read the novels but probably has the Dragons of Faerun scourcebook by now.
MY thoughts are in the early months of rage he will find himself easily distracted, difficuly to awaken at times suffering bouts of deep sleep, annoyed when made to repeat himself or answer constant questions.
If attracted to someone their every action or inaction will change his mood instantly, probably not for the better.
During combat he will find it difficult to restrain himself from doing lethal damage especially to enemy that has hurt him in some form. Will sometimes use natural weapons in a situation that clearly calls for something else before restraining himself, such as against a creature that has resistance/immunity to slashing damage.
Sense of humor will become more jaded.
As the Rage persist these "moods" will become more intense, his sleeping pattern will range from occassional deep sleep to very little sleep, or vice versa depending on your take on sleep.
I think him seeing extreme violence, blood and gore will cause him to grow highly agitated if not in combat, more bestial if in combat. And his perception while in combat will suffer as he will focus on slaying and not group tactics, even using his breath weapon with companions/noncombatants in area.
My main point is what will his dreams and daydreams/visions be of and being part elven will that help him in anyway during the various stages of the Rage?”
Kuje chimed in with this: “Richard Byers, before Dragons of Faerun came out, said in his thread so many years ago that the Rage would effect half-dragons but with lesser symptoms. Check his thread or my compiled logs. :)
Also, Dragons of Faerun, in the Dracorage Mythal, backs up what he says because it effects all dragon and dragonblooded.”
Ed replies:



When I first conceived of the Rage of Dragons (preceding the launch of the published Realms) it was meant to affect all dragons and those with draconic blood to some extent, unless specifically magically protected (i.e. I knew there would be exceptions, but I hadn’t worked out who, how, or why).
So the short answer is “yes,” the PC WILL be affected by the Rage, and your description of his symptoms almost perfectly matches my take on it. I would say that his dreams will move quickly, usually involving violence or at least chases, change often, and be agitated, involving beings the PC hates or loves or fears or wants the respect of. They won’t ALL be bad, but there will be a lot of blood (though the dooms will quickly be replaced by new dreams, not dwelt upon). As a result, he won’t sleep well. A sleeping partner will find him restless (moving about often, and from time to time thrashing or sweating and murmuring), and if that partner is also a sexual partner, they may find his dreams lead him to initiative violent sex with them WHILST STILL ASLEEP (dreaming).
The elven side of the PC is what is keeping his dreams so (relatively!) innocuous, AND the PC able to maintain any personal control over himself at all. This control, by the way - - unless shattered by external events - - will continue throughout the Rage, so the PC can (with the symptoms you’ve described and proposed) continue to function in life.



So saith Ed, creator of the Rage and quite a few dragon types, too (fang, deep, electrum, and more). Who has, he tells me, finally recovered from participating in his library’s midnight Harry Potter launch (a wild affair of some 300 guests, live owls, a Sorting Hat, readings of the last chapter of the Half-Blood Prince and just a teaser from the very beginning of the first chapter of Deathly Hallows, much food, an Order of the Phoenix meeting, 200 copies of the book being sold in ten minutes, and Ed garbed as Elminster whilst his fellow staffers were all costumed as various Hogwarts characters). They’re STILL giving away candies and cookies . . .
love to all,
THO
P.S. Ed tells me he won six different bets as to the outcome of the saga (survival and revealed loyalties of various characters), with the result that no less than SIX publishing staffers from various companies now owe him dinners. Go ahead, publishing houses: feed the starving author!
P.P.S. To Vanidariaen, Ed says: You are very welcome. I enjoy answering Realmslore questions, and just wish I had a LOT more time in my life to do so. Though I suppose many folk feel the same pressure. Please, keep reading, and feel free to add queries into the ongoing ferrago!

Hello again, all.
Scribe ddporter recently asked: "Surely I am not the only Savoyard here. What are the chances of seeing these lyrics?" in response to my words: "So saith Ed. Who can sing most of "I Am The Very Image of A Personage Druidical" (though it was Ian Hunter, who portrays Lanseril, who composed those G&S-accompanying lyrics, if I recall correctly)."
Ed replies:


I will try to contact Ian for permission AND for a copy of the lyrics (which may take some time, as he's a very busy and roving fellow). My copy is literally buried in my upstairs study, and may well take years to find. As I recently discovered the hard way, whilst searching for vintage sketches for a forthcoming book, and finding all too few of them.


So saith Ed. And I strongly suspect that book was THE ANNOTATED ELMINSTER, due out in November.
love to all,
THO
