Hello,
There are now conflicting Canon—I think—instances where the great temple of Kossuth in Thay, the Flaming Brazier, is placed in both:

- Eltabbar (novel Unclean and the Forgotten Realms wiki (3.5e +).
- Bezantur (Powers and Pantheons (2e)

So, where is it really?!?

Cheers.

Newer lore trumps older lore, officially -- but for me, I'd go with any 2E lore before anything post-2E, because with the advent of 3E, they stop being concerned about prior continuity.

It's really in Bezantur but RLB dropped the ball on this one and his editor didn't do much better - Mythrellan *cough*. Just ignore the reference to it being in Eltabbar, difficult as that may be.

And I don't think that "newer lore trumps old lore" when a few sentences in a novel are expected to count more than a full write-up in a sourcebook. No way.

Thanks for the quick responses.

I'll go with 2e, since...well, it makes more sense.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that that bugs so much (the Mythrellan reference). She is Mythrell'aa to me (though I have a nasty tendency to spell it Mythrella'a), and I personally have played it up that she faked her death and the Mythrellan name is part of that faking of her death.


Also, agree, definitely Bezantur.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail
