On the topic of Thauglorimorgorus, and the manipulation of the Weave by dragons:
quote:
Hello again, all.
dazzerdal, great questions, and off they've gone to Ed. Here is what little I can say:

"First and foremost among the questions for me is what is the current status of the purple dragon. I realise history records him as being killed but i am wondering if that is the entire story."
THO: So far as I understand, this is still NDA.

"Second, has Thauglor ever been involved with any tinkerings in the weave around Cormyr (like Embrurshaille in Thar)."
THO: Yes.

"Sources indicate that the Obarskyr family are linked in some way to the Weave and this may have been inherited (not in a genetic sense but perhaps through knowledge or manipulation) from the elves. Is this linkage and malleability of the Weave in Cormyr in any way linked to Thauglor and have any other groups or peoples discovered and exploited this link (such as the Sword Heralds or Nalavaroth the Devil Dragon who Jeremy informs me could direct teleporting mages within Cormyr into her mouth). [Jeremy: "Oops! I meant to say she could redirect already teleporting wizards away from their destination directly into her maw."]"
THO: BIG NDA here. Beyond hints Ed has given me in the past that several individual dragons know some secrets of the Weave, and exploit them, and that this is the source of much "dragon magic" that doesn't fit the casting of known arcane magic spells.

"Third, what is the legacy of Thauglor, does he have any children, does he survive in some fashion, where is his lair and has it been discovered yet, how did he shape Cormyr after its beginnings (when he allowed the realm to be settled) apart from the purple dragon imagery which i understand started with Prince/King Duar."
THO: NDAs, yes, but I do know Thauglor had children. How many and their fates and/or present dispositions, I don't know - - but I can tell you that in the home Realms campaign, years ago, we encountered a beautiful human woman who escaped us in dragonshape (and so was a weredragon or song dragon or something else able to shapechange into a dragon and back) who used the name "Tharaela Blood-Of-Thauglor." And I'm afraid that's ALL I know about her, except that we Knights saw her watching us, just for an instant, years later.
And of course that means that Ed, as our DM, probably isn't going to say much more about this mysterious Tharaela.
However, when it comes to spilling about Thauglorimorgorus (who of course Ed created and named, though Jeff Grubb first brought him to life onstage in fiction, in CORMYR: A Novel; that is, Jeff wrote the first draft of the Thauglor scenes), we'll see . . .
love,
THO
and
quote:
dazzerdal, you may well be on to something, re. Thauglor. (Ahem, hint, hint...)

And in regards to your second question (the one I answered with a bald "yes" because I've no idea until Ed and I talk how much I can share, let's just say that several of the Royal Magicians of Cormyr have come to believe that the dragons worked covertly with the Weave before both elves and humans were "allowed" to come into the area that is now Cormyr, possiby as something of an experiment. (The ability of certain dragons to work with the Weave akin to the way the veteran Chosen of Mystra do is one of the great unexplored areas of Realmslore - - and every time I nudge Ed to provide more, he smilingly directs me to his next novel, and his next, and his . . .
love to all,
THO

Regarding the undead in the Haunted Wing of the Royal Palace
quote:
And hello again, all.
Re. this, from Jeremy Grenemyer: "I was also wondering if any of the undead in the Haunted Wing have been successfully quelled, or at least subdued, by song alone?"

Ed just sent me an e-mail that included this answer for you:

Yes. Several of the "sad queens" (sad-eyed gliding court ladies, not actually queens or princesses, but the public gave them this nickname nonetheless) seem comforted by skilled harping of the style popular several centuries back, and will smile and nod and withdraw. And there are at least two minstrels among the ghosts, who can be driven away in rage by bad playing, or playing certain loud and uptempo modern dances. Legend holds that playing just the right tune will make one of them your friend, guide, and nightly confidant (if, ahem, you consider that a reward), but no one seems to have yet hit upon just what that "right tune" is.

So saith Ed. Intriguing me greatly, as it sheds light on some events in the home Realms campaign from YEARS ago. Gods, what a mind the man has . . .

THO

THO on the daily doings of Lanthandarites in Eveningstar and what you might find in and about The House of the Morning if you poke about enough

enjoy

Damian
************************************************

I can give you a "starter answer" and hand your question on to Ed for a deeper followup.
First of all: the clergy of the temple leave tending sheep and goats to the citizen farmers of Eveningstar, and confine themselves to growing herbs and vegetables, making "physics" and "cordials" (medicines), and doctoring. They make steady amounts by the sale of bulk vegetables (including wares stored under straw in shallow caves they've dug in the cliff face to the west of the stream valley) to passing caravan merchants (the locals, of course, grow their own), and make the main temple income from the selling of bottled sauces and jarred preserved herbs, plus some of the aforementioned medicinal cordials (they blow their own glass bottles, BTW).
The temple maintains "offices" of prayer (somewhat akin to a real-world Benedictine monastery) around the clock, and much of the daily work of the temple is farming, by hand, in the fields, and by visiting the people of Eveningstar and wayfarers stopping at local inns (in the Knights' time, the Lonesome Tankard). These visitations are to help, advise, and encourage new ventures, inventions, and innovations both large and small among the general populace.
The basement of the temple consists of low-ceiling cellars full of kegs of ale (the main drink of the clergy; this is watered-down ale, more "treated water" than "stuff to get drunk on"), hanging meat (the clergy have their own smokehouse on the west side of the mouth of the stream gorge), and stored root vegetables, plus the "underkitchens" where pickling occurs, vegetables are chopped and boiled, and so on (spit roasting occurs outdoors, even in severe winter weather).
The upstairs of the temple consists of several "cells" (quiet rooms) for solitary prayer and contemplation (farthest from those stairs), three large dormitory rooms (two-decker bunk beds for the clergy to sleep in), a row of garderobes and a bathroom (meaning: room with copper sit-baths; water is pumped by hand from cisterns), several meeting rooms, and then, closest to the stair you had the priests descend, a robing room (cloakroom, with outerwear boots, sandals, cloaks, hoods, and wintercloaks all stored, with benches for getting dressed and undressed), plus a toolroom and workshop.
As for memories...hoo boy; much consultation and doctoring of wounded Knights, an adventuresome interlude involving Torm trying to find a private spot for some hanky-panky with a willing lass but being continually interrupted by oh-so-genuinely-helpful priests, and at least one instance in which the clergy hid a runaway outlaw from Purple Dragons searching for him, because they disagreed with the policing methods. Oh, and Lord Tessaril stood up for them doing so, when it finally got found out. Tessaril and Charisbonde were staunch friends, and worked together covertly quite a bit. (And there is - - correctly - - rumored to be vast wealth hidden in or around the temple, but the individual priests of today haven't the faintest where it is or how to access it, no matter how much they get enchanted or tortured by someone wanting to find it.) The temple coffers are banked in Suzail; they can buy and sell all of Eveningstar several times over, and are rumored (again, correctly, though they won't admit which ones) to have part ownership in several trading costers.

There. Hope this is of help!
love,
THO

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. .
shudder,
love to all,

Hi everyone !

- What do we know exactly on Galaghard/Draxius and his reign ?

Who knows about his true identity after the Royal Mages, Amedahast and her nephew ?

- Do we know at which year TILVERTON became properly part of the Cormyr ?


Any crusty gossip or adventures published ?

Dear fellow Scribes,

while my time in our sacred halls of candlekeep is rather limited these days (or to be honest non-existent atm) I still find time now and again to stay devoted to the Realms in general and esp. Cormyr. I recently picked up old copies of the "Finder's Stone Trilogy" (Azure Bonds, The Wyvern's Spur and Song of teh Saurials) as well as "Finders Bane" and "Tymora"s Luck", which I had not read so far. I'm done with the trilogy by now and aside from a very, very enjoyable read, lots of Realms Flavor and many a detail on Cormyr can be gahtered therein. I have to give my belated thanks to Kate Novak and Jeff Grubb for the creation of these gems of Realms-literature.

I highly recommand the Finder's Stone Trilogy to all Realms-Fans as well as any Cormyr-Devotee as myself.

Until next time, good Gaming always,

Ergdusch

Hi all,
I remembered there is a "Dead Well" in Cormyr, close to the Wivernflow. Do we have any information about this ? Or is it just a name on a map for dungeon masters ?

Form the top of my head:

It could be the well that leads to a certain "lost library", that Mel Odom wrote about in the "Lost Empires" Series.
But as I said: this is more a guess - from memory.

I will try to verify it later.

Ergdusch



Edit Note:
The place you mention is not the well that leads to the Lost Library. The Entrance to the library is found in the West of Cormyr, near Waymoot (about seventeen miles north of that town and six miles west of Ranger's Way (see p. 23 of "The Lost Library of Cormanthyr" by Mel Odom).

It seems I cannot help you with your question. But maybe some other scribe has the information you seek.

As the link to Ed Greenwood’s Eye on the Realms: Queen Filfaeril’s Blades is broken, I added the article here once more from Dungeoin Magazine 187:

Ed Greenwood’s Eye on the Realms: Queen Filfaeril’s Blades

The beautiful, capable, strong-willed wife of King Azoun IV of Cormyr is now long dead, but she left behind a hidden, living legacy. A small, secretive band of loyal agents, her personal Blades, remain dedicated to furthering her aims for the Forest Kingdom. Still willing to slay and die in her memory, they seek to make “Fee’s Fire” burn in every Cormyrean’s heart and hearth.

The Founding
In life, Queen Filfaeril, or “Queen Fee” to those close to her, was a masterful manipulator who did much to guide the realm from behind the scenes. She governed her husband even more firmly and effectively than the wily and powerful Royal Magician Vangerdahast
did. She also influenced events at court, as well as the tide of rumor and popular opinion, far more subtly than even the “most brightshield” (smoothest) of courtiers.
Filfaeril worked by means of deft and subtle inferences, suggestions, and misdirection (particularly by spreading false rumors) where Vangerdahast bluntly threatened, mustered War Wizards to his will, and gave orders. In contrast to them all, her royal husband gave imperious royal commands. Azoun knew what his beloved Fee was doing, and he loved her for it, with occasional testy irritation being his strongest negative reaction. Vangerdahast and Filfaeril fought an ongoing battle on many levels. The wizard believed that only he had the wisdom and good judgment to guide Cormyr, and Filfaeril was grimly determined to ensure that Azoun should rule the realm, with Vangey acting as a wise advisor and capable servant at most.
This three-way power struggle seldom boiled over into open confrontation or anger, because all three participants (despite what others believed) had the best interests of Cormyr at heart. They frequently disagreed on what those interests were, but none of them was concerned with gaining personal advancement or
power for its own sake.
Azoun, Vangerdahast, and a handful of other Wizards of War (such as the senior “mother” War Wizard, Laspeera) and courtiers (such as the sage Alaphondar) were aware Filfaeril worked covertly with the Harpers. They also knew that she had her own handful of spies and agents, including some Highknights who were more loyal to her than to Vangey or Azoun.
Yet Filfaeril also had a smaller handful of personal agents that she (with the aid of Storm Silverhand and Dove Falconhand) successfully kept secret even from her husband and the all-seeing Vangerdahast.
These people were her Blades, a dozen or so human, halfling, gnome, and half-elf Cormyreans who were crucial in blunting several noble revolts. Such lethal response from the Blades had a chilling effect on rebellious nobles, who began thinking carefully about the personal consequences of sedition. Today, nearly ninety years after Filfaeril’s death, the descendants of the original Blades are active in Cormyr and wherever powerful Cormyreans go in
the Realms. They continue to carry out the aims of the dead queen, operating as an independent secret society that is known to the Harpers and, on rare occasions, working with Those Who Harp. The group is only a persistent rumor to the current War Wizards of the realm, and it avoids all wizards as much as possible.

A Right Loyal Company
Queen Filfaeril’s Blades are now about two dozen strong, and they have another dozen or so novices who do little more than act as passive “eyes and ears” for the veterans. Most Blades are rogues (of 5th through 12th level, most of them aerialists), backed by
a few fighters (of 6th through 12th level, most being 7th or 8th). Their current leader, Toraunt Hawkgar (a good human male 12th-level rogue), took over the Blades after the violent death of Anathur Hawkhorn.
Before Toraunt’s time as leader, Hawkhorn, the grandson of Baerlus Hawkhorn and a bastard son of Azoun IV, held the mantle of leadership of the Blades. Like other Blades leaders before him, he was intensely loyal to the Obarskyr family and the realm of Cormyr, and he was dedicated to moving into accord with the aims of Queen Fee with a minimum of bloodshed. If a reigning king or queen of Cormyr has to be eliminated to bring about a Forest Kingdom that follows Filfaeril’s aims, the Blades have failed—but defending the monarch against those opposed to Queen Fee’s aims, with violence whenever necessary, is essential and entirely acceptable.
Anathur dubbed the Blades as being “a right loyal company” and began the tradition of reporting the deeds of the Blades to Filfaeril’s personal crown as if she was still alive. The crown in question is her personal “tall tiara” rather than the heavier and more valuable “state” crown that she wore at her marriage to Azoun, which remains a treasure of the realm in the vaults beneath the Royal Palace. Over the years, this near-worship of the Queen’s Crown has engendered reverence and awe among the Blades.
Many of the younger members believe that Filfaeril’s spirit perceives the world through the crown, which Toraunt keeps hidden except during Blades meetings at which he is present. Some say that it sends dreams and other “signs” to individual Blades who call on her when they are uncertain what to do.
Anathur was murdered by furious elder Cormyrean nobles in 1471 DR when they overheard him explaining that better-paid servants and tenants who were treated as social equals would be happier and more loyal than oppressed ones. Over the years since, Anathur has been slowly and carefully avenged by his chosen successor, Toraunt. This most recent leader of the Blades has slain Anathur’s killers in a series of clever murders that he arranged to seem like accidents that were caused by the dead nobles’ own excesses or imprudent actions.
Other than those slayings, Toraunt’s leadership of the Blades has avoided most bloodshed. He prefers to keep a low profile instead of doing dramatic deeds and gaining a growing “rumorfire reputation.” Since most of the Blades share his preferences for being deft, silent, and patient, there has thus far been little dissatisfaction with his style of leadership.
Toraunt’s trusted lieutenants are his lover Maharantrae Snardren (a good half-elf female 10th-level aerialist rogue, who is an accomplished dancer and sometime revel-consort and tutor to young nobles) and Daskur Halorth (a good human male 12th-level fighter, who is of stolid rural—Hullack—Cormyrean stock). Maharantrae and Daskur maintain internal discipline within the Blades and watch for infiltrators.
Thus far they have seen no disloyalty, in large part because Toraunt runs the Blades diplomatically, giving all senior members a say in missions and activities, and adopting good ideas from the entire membership.

Aims High and True
The dream Queen Filfaeril had for Cormyr is the Cause of the Blades, though more often they call it “Fee’s Fire.” It is this: Although no kingdom can ever be free of strife, struggles for more power, and personal feuds and hatreds, a land is strong when most of its inhabitants are prosperous and busy, and when inhabitants can see clear rewards for being lawabiding citizens day in and day out. The strength and sense of ownership the citizens gain can lead to them gladly rendering extra support to Crown and realm in
troubled times.
In other words, the “old ways” of wealthy, oppressive nobles lording it over commoners who have fewer rights and less coin must be swept away. This process must be done in a slow, subtle, guided way and with as little violence as possible. Fee and her Blades want commoners to gain wealth and take pride and pleasure in being Cormyrean without seeing lawbreaking or “becoming noble” as the only ways to achieve such contentment.
So for commoner and noble alike, coin must be more equitably distributed through “solid” salaries and fair treatment before the law and in the marketplaces.
The Cause of the Blades calls for this goal to be accomplished by changing the attitudes of Cormyreans over time and through open adjustments of Crown law, not by overthrowing nobles or the Dragon
Throne, nor by strengthening guilds into militant antinoble groups.
Queen Filfaeril further saw that the more widely Cormyr traded not just with its neighbors, but with those far across the Realms, the less “outland” (mysterious, distant, and expendable or disliked) the Forest Kingdom would seem. Rulers elsewhere would treat the Land of the Purple Dragon as useful, formidable, and worthy of respect, and not as a land to be feared, dismissed, sneered at, or readily made war upon.
Doing the above would, in turn, make Cormyr more prosperous and important, benefiting all Cormyreans.

Bold and Recent Exploits
The Blades seek to further Fee’s Fire by forging friendships and business partnerships between nobles (particularly younger nobles) and commoners. They try to guide such relationships into being conducted in the open, rather than in secrecy behind mansion gates, so that they can minimize traditional perceptions of nobles “buying and corrupting” commoners with whom they deal.
At the same time, they try to expose and thwart nobles who work against the Dragon Throne (in acts ranging from dire treason to small-time smuggling and evading taxes), and they try to spread the attitude that nobles and commoners should be treated equally
in law and in everyday business practices.
This season, the Blades have been active in Amn and along the trade routes, trying to frustrate Cormyrean nobles (notably of the Gauntweather and Hartalan families) who’ve been hiring armed thugs
to harass rivals and seize goods outside Cormyr. In Suzail, they’ve been working hard to sow distrust between angry nobles who gathered for King Foril’s Council of Dragons (see Elminster Must Die! and Bury Elminster Deep), to prevent strong anti-Crown alliances from forming, and to highlight the harsh reactions of nobles who seek to roll back the rights that King Foril granted to commoners. The Blades try to expose traitor nobles, frustrate their attempts to place spies in the Palace and at Court, and exacerbate long-standing feuds and rivalries among the nobles to break up common fronts before they can gain solidity.
The Blades seek to learn all noble plots and schemes, and they act against those who weaken the Dragon Throne and would thwart the aims of Queen Filfaeril. As they do all this, they whisper, “For Filfaeril and Cormyr, forever!”

Hi folks,

I edited my first post several times today, mainly by checking on the links. I changed or removed those off target.

Aside from that I added a Short Story to the list: Ekhard Lorrent: Gnome Detective and a new Cormyrian Location mentioned therein:

Home, a Gnome Village, too small to have a real name of its own. The Gnomes living there simply call it "Home". The village lies close to the Way of the Dragon, between Espar and Waymoot, about 5 miles before the road enters into the forrest line of the King's Forrest.



Good Gaming always,

Ergdusch

Dear Fellow Scribes,

I found and added two more short stories playing Cormyr, both from Realms of Mystery.

Strange Bedfellows by Keith Francis Strohm (about a conspiracy against the Crown in Tilverton)
The Grinning Ghost of Taverton Hall[/b] by Ed Greenwood (about a family mystery involving ghosts, deaths, young and daring beautiful ladies and a Harper - what else would one expect from Ed himself!)

Good Gaming always, Ergdusch

Just looking for info on a different locale (very far away) and came across a Cormyr-related passage in PftF, pg.22...

"At that time the keeper of the Crystrum was the Eldathyn priestess Analauthé Brenewood—she who later sacrificed herself in a ritual that purified the Wyvernwater after the cruel experimentation of the necromancer Elgarth of Westgate released a creeping “death rot” into its waters."


So apparently, there was a very mean necromancer (aren't they always?) named Elgarth, from Westgate, who poisoned the Wyvernwater at some point. Analauthé Brenewood was living in the Hullack Forest at the time, with other Eldathyns, after fleeing a location in or very near the Elven Court. And since that was PftF, that is directly from Ed.

They missed the O when they were spelling his last name and just placing all the vowels in order......AEIOU.... and sometimes y
