LOL! I needed a laugh. I'm sure I won't be laughing Friday, at the funeral. A question for scribes (or Ed or THO when they're back): I heard a rumour that Ed was seen buying lots of D&D minis AND dice at Pentacon.
Is this true? Is Ed up to something nefarious? Creating a new game? Or just trying to get some FR minis (as I doubt Wizards sent him a single figure, and he's often complained all of his local gaming stores went out of business)?
I don't mean to pry, Ed. I'm just curious; if it's none of my business, tell me so and I won't be upset.

Ed, all of us love you here at the 'Keep and abroad. You and your family (blood or otherwise) means a great deal to all of us readers of your work. For with out them, we wouldn't have you. We wouldn't have a world which a family let a crazy kid go and talk to a very old, powerful and dirty old man and a few sisters, a handful of decaying liches and the occasional romp in the Tavern. A place where each of us here can escape with an ease of a book, a small group of friends or just a pen, few pieces of paper and create our own person.

Ed, you are deep in my thoughts, wishes and prayers to all that is in our world and the world you made for us, by the family you are of.

Thank you, everyone, for the lovely posts. Neriandal-Freit, you just made me cry again, but you did it in the nicest way.
Blueblade, Ed was indeed buying lots of dice and minis at Pentacon. Here's why: he's introducing the young kids of a local bank teller in the village to D&D (through her), and giving them the dice they need and a few figs, PLUS, yes, picking up the FR figs for himself, plus the figs for monsters (such as the Gauth and the Deep Dragon) that he created for the game. I believe his father used to amusedly tell his friends that his son had "really made it," after Ed got one of those Ed-as-Elminster special minis at a GenCon.
Which awakens a question in me for all scribes: how many special one-off minis have there been?
love,
THO

Gods, I just now read the terrible news. Give Ed my deepest sympathy. I know he knows it, but he is well loved by all of us. My heart goes out to him.

Leaves fall
What are?
friends for.

my sincerest condolences.

Thanks very much for that list, Xysma. Most of the figs seem to have been subsequently released as part of the regular collectibles. I know Ed has a lot of the Silver Dragons (unless he gave them away), because Lezlie Samuel and Mary-Elizabeth Allen kept coming up to him and shoving one figure at a time down his shirt-front (part of a private joke about giving Ed breasts impressive enough that a staff artist could paint him to put on an FR novel book cover . . . yes, well, I'm sure it seemed funnier at the time), but I'm not so sure about the Elminster fig. He probably has one (yes, one).
Thanks to everyone for your condolences and good wishes. Please keep the questions coming, too; it'll give Ed something to do when he finally gets the Knights novel and that 4e FR announced work out of the way, and can breathe again.
I asked him how he felt last night, and he gave me a crooked smile and said, "Well, thank goodness I only had one dad to lose." He tells me he'll be okay, though, and thanks to everyone for thinking of him.
love to all,
THO

Apologies for not chiming in sooner, but I feel greatly for Ed and wish him the best. He and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Although not the most lovely way of looking at someone we loose, it's a interesting an I believe a good way of looking at someone like that. Never thought of it in that manner...

N-F, that comment sounds like Ed. In pain but being wry about it. I'm sure I'll see him weeping (but trying not to) at the funeral; he and his father were close friends, not just dad and son. Yet I don't want to dwell on this; the man deserves some privacy. Instead, I'll do what THO suggested, and post another Realms question:

In the Realms of "now," pre-Spellplague, what steps is Vangey (and/or Laspeera and anyone else in the War Wizards) taking to watch for traitors in the ranks? The first two Knights books have shown us traitors to the realm high up in the War Wizards, one of whom got revealed VERY dramatically (in front of the entire Court and all the Suzailans who could get in, plus a visiting diplomat). I guess what I'm asking is: what new internal security policies or procedures resulted from that?

I'm guessing Ed may not get to this for a while, for the reasons we all know. So . . . Garen Thal?
Thanks

Well met.

Ed, do gods in Realmspace get benefits from the worship of people who are drugged or enchanted into worshipping them?

Ed tells me he received a box from Wizards today (between deliveries of flowers) that contained, among other things, his author's copies of THE ANNOTATED ELMINSTER. According to Ed, it looks "Gorgeous."
Wizards sent "a beautiful" arrangement of flowers, too.
Ed also sent this message:

I want to thank all of you for your love and support. I intend to climb right back into the saddle just as soon as I can, but my replies here at Candlekeep may be both brief and infrequent for a while, I'm afraid. My father's passing has occurred at a very bad time for scheduling of both the last Knights novel and 4e FR work, and I MUST put them first, for all our sakes, the moment I can really get back behind a keyboard. (Yes, I wrote some stuff today, in a few snatched moments, just to try to calm myself by fooling myself that I felt "normal." Unfortunately, as I get older I don't fool as easily. :} )
So please forgive me, and don't stop posting those lore queries. THO will send them on to me no matter where and how they reach her, and I will get to them. Eventually.
The doorbell is ringing again, now, so I must go . . .


So saith Ed. Who will of course be silent tomorrow (as will I).
love to all,
THO

Ed is, of course, more qualified to answer this question fully, but this my understanding of things (without spoiling any secrets):

At the time of the Knights book, Vangerdahast is swiftly learning that he is minding too many stews, what with the War Wizards, the Council of Mages (that body of arcane spellcasters that advises the Crown on matters magical), his personal service to the Obarskyrs, and his general protection of Cormyr. The man has far too many hats, and, frankly, isn't the sort of wizard that enjoys wearing any.

A great many wizards were cowed into submission or flight when Vangerdahast came to power in 1306DR (there is a reason his epithet is Thunderspells), but by 1348DR, there is a new generation of War Wizards, not all of which understand his powers, planning and foresight, and a very few of which actually do understand that his abilities may be a bit... overblown.

At present (that is, in the Knights novels), the only War Wizard Vangerdahast can trust is Laspeera. For everyone else, there are a number of tactics Vangey uses to keep order:
-Mind-reams of suspected traitors
-Random scrying
-Triggered scrying and magical "recording" (where certain words, phrases or topics set off the appropriate magic). Vangerdahast learned recently that he just can't handle multiple scrying sources activating all at once, so he's taken to magically preserving certain suspected conversations rather than directly observing them.
-Control of access magic items: other than war wizard cloaks and a handful of other items, things like wands and potions must be accounted for both before and after assignments.

Note that these tales take place before the stories of Vangerdahast taking blood from each War Wizard in order to place a geas on them. And there is a reason for such legends...

This might seem like an impertinent question, Garen, but I have to ask:

If he doesn't like "wearing any hats", then why didn't he step down from the job? Surely he must enjoy at least some of the hats he wears...

PS: I can't wait to pick up the Annotated Elminster book.

My little "hats" quip had to do with the Old Snoops choice of headgear rather than his willingness to take on too many jobs. It's literal hats he dislikes.

As for his metaphorical hats, Vangerdahast is firmly convinced that he is the only one intelligent, capable and loyal enough to do any of the jobs that he undertakes. No one else can be trusted, or (if trusted) trusted to do it right. In later years, he as disabused of this notion to a small degree, but part of Vangerdahast's predicament is his hubris. He has always considered himself capable of sitting at the "grown-ups' table," his humbling by Khelben/Manshoon/Elminster notwithstanding.

Well met, all!

Lady Hooded One, about a year ago I asked an exhaustive set of questions for Ed concerning whether or not Toril had anything comparable to the occult information network which existed in Earth's Hyborian Age, and which may be accessed in the Conan RPG through the Sorcerous News spells. I would like to ask another question which Ed may add onto the creaking framework of my other questions, or which he may answer separately: is it possible to eavesdrop on sending, message and such-like spells using arcane magic? Can one intercept such a transmission and alter it with different information? If so, how would it most likely be done?

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

I have a few question too.

I'm a radio animator for a French local radio community, and my programs is on all the RPG world. My next hour, on thuesday will be on the forgotten realms, and I would be so happy if you could agree to answer those questions.

Where did the idea of the realm start ?
How how choose the autors ?
How do you chose your fellow players ?
When did you start playing RPG ?
Do you have any anectode funny about games in forgotten realms ?

As long as we have permission from "the Wood" to continue the deluge of questions:


Where in the Stonelands was the fortress of the Eldreth Veluuthra?

Where in the Hullack forest was the household of House Starym?

I might have asked this already, but did the Eternal Srinnala come from you or was that
all Steven's idea? Do you have anything you can share?

Are you able to expound at all on the goals of the Pentad? I missed the reference in the old grey box (sold a lot of my old stuff) and know nothing outside Blackstaff.

Are there any hidden gems that you can share on the Spiderhaunt Woods or the Desertmouth Mts?
There seems to be a big lack of detail (at least nothing I have seen) on these 2 physical features.

Thanks.

It's about Flamsterd, the sage of the Moonshaes. I vaguely remember his various mentions,
What, in either official WotC canon or Ed's opinion, are Flamsterd's whereabouts, doings, and condition (i.e. alive? ) right now, Realmstime?
Thanks!
Blueblade



I asked a similar question a few years ago on the Realms mailing list

you can find Ed's answer here
(can someone clever clean this link up please?)

I too would love an update on Flamsterd, he is one of my 'really interesting Realms characters who we know so little about' along with Jhaele Silvermane, The Talonmists, Duman Kiriag (esp. his time with the Six Splendid Swords), Iyarim (Irongard Dungeon 18), Halfling Inc, Tzin Tzummer, The Ravenmaster, Brian the Swordmaster, Thurbal (Warden of Shadowdale) among many many others

am wondering if we prod enough we might get to hear some more?

Cheers

Damian
ps best wishes to Ed and family during this sad time

Mod edit: Big link made all nice and pretty.

Thanks Wooley

So saith Ed. I've never said he was sane, have I?
Gods, all this writing and he's running a constant fantasy version of Coronation Street in his head, too. .

Ed answered the first question a year or two ago. He wrote stories about what became "the Forgotten Realms" for many years before D&D was first created, and the milieu lent itself readily to gaming. Please check Ed's answers from 2006 and earlier for all the details.
