Anyone know any more information on this book? It seems like a sourcebook for the Adventurer's League.

Cover of the book: https://ibb.co/hO3u3n

"Show some respect!" the draegloth thundered. "You adress High Priestess Quenthel Baenre, Mistress of Arach-Tinilith, Mistress of the Academy, Mistress of Tier Breche, First Sister of House Baenre of Menzoberranzan... you insolent dog!"

I saw something about his intention to put it on the DM's Guild.

From Facebook:

Ed Greenwood authored the supplement below, updating the lore for the Border Kingdoms, for the new AL content that will be released at Gamehole Con. I know Alan Patrick is meeting with WotC to see if they can publish it on the Dungeon Masters Guild.


I asked THO about it on the current Ask Ed Scroll...

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

From what I understand yes.

I just hope that it covers more than the series of WotC articles did... Those articles were great, but they abruptly kicked that series to the curb. IIRC, there were one or two articles Ed had written and submitted that WotC had but never did anything with.

From THO

Hello again, all!
Brimstone, I can tell you this much: Ed updated his Border Kingdoms write-ups to current Realms time (the 1490s DR) and completed them, A-Z, covering the entire BK in an overview that the GameholeCon adventure designers formatted into a handsome gazetteer that I hope will be available for sale at the DM's Guild eventually (proceeds to GameholeCon?)...
Ed crammed it full of adventure hooks, subplots, and the like.

And I believe Alex Kammer, the master gamer who runs GameholeCon, collaborated with Ed on an uberplot to underpin the GameholeCon Adventurers League adventures at this year's con, and for several years into the future. Alex came up to Canada a month or so back to spend a few days at Ed's house cooking up things.

(Ed's also at work on other things in the Realms, including his own annual Mirt story-and-lore plus companion adventure. He held a TEGG contest, and the winner, Clinton Cronk, has designed an Ormpur adventure that should go up at the Guild eventually. I'm hoping Ed will follow through on his plans to write "Volo mini-guides" for all the locales Mirt visits, too...)

Another reply tomorrow, I hope (have ferried everything to Ed for lore replies)...

Love to all,
THO

That's one of the things I hate, series of articles stopping clearly way before their time. In my Realms notes there are more than a couple of series names with the references to the magazines numbers and then "why does it stop?!? [expletives]"

Long ago, before my banning from the WotC forums, I was participating in a discussion on web features. The general consensus was "they did X, Y, and Z, and they were all awesome, but then they dropped them and we'd like them back!"

That was when I commented that maybe WotC could do a poll or something and simply ask people what they wanted... And a WotC staffer came in and commented that they had no need to do that; they had their own ways of determining what we liked and wanted.

That one post made me lose a hell of a lot of respect for WotC.
