Had not seen this before. Thanks for sharing, ec. I will join you in guarded optimism.

Thanks Elaine! I really hope this is true. I'm definitely a novel first fan of the Realms and I've felt really ignored by WoTC in the recent years. Let's hope they do change this state of affairs. Plus I'm using my Ring of Wishes to get you back to writing Realms novels!!!

A lifeline!

But I am going to continue to be pessimistic in my head.

That really does sound promising! I am cautiously optimistic that WotC will come thru for us, as I've long hoped they would. It's been really hard, keeping the faith the last few years -- so I'm hoping for a payoff, here!

Welcome. There's room by the fire, ale in that keg.

Come to think of it, "Guarded Optimism" wouldn't be a bad name for a fantasy tavern.

Here's hoping you write another Realms novel starting in said tavern!

A lot of people take issue with stories that start out in taverns. I could work Guarded Optimism into the story later, though.

Hmmm, hopefully good news. I couldn't listen to it all, since I'm at work (granted remote, but still "at work"), so thanks for the heads up on the minute to go to.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I am just too pesimistic. I fear the awesome news will be that DMs Guild will allow lore products and novels instead of just adventures and rules or something equally terrible

It's either in a tavern or not in a tavern, right? Might as well start in one!

Danilo, Arilyn and Bronwyn in a tavern.....

There's a misunderstanding.

What could be a better start for a tale of the realms?

A novel about Halruaa would still be possible even in the current era, given that it's back in place.

One thing such a novel might do is explore how people rebuild after a catastrophic event. I don't know exactly when Halruaa returned--was it the full 100 years?--but another aspect to a current-day Halruaa story would be that descendants of survivers would have lived elsewhere for 3 or 4 generations. Halruaa would no longer be home. Whatever is built there is likely to be very different from the culture that was destroyed. On the one hand, that's rather sad, but on the other, it's an interesting opportunity for world-building.
