I signed up, along with three friends of mine. All of us are bringing our mid-level PC's to game with. I'm excited! When joining the Lore seminars I will ask a thousand Ahmaquissar questions indeed.

To play I'm bringing Trysiifith Oumryn: CN Gold elf male of Narbeth, (Shalhoond). CR 25; Rogue 5/ Cleric 5/ Fortune's Friend 5/ Sacred Fist 10 of Erevan Ilesere. Co-founder and Guildmaster of the Daggerford Rogues of the Laughing Midnight. Exiled King of The Great Wild Wood in the extreme edge of eastern Faerűn. "The Mongoose Prince" of Court Oumryn. Master of Fist, Foot, Elbow, Knee and Spell.

I also have a 4ED and 5ED version of this PC to make sure I get into a game. lol.

Um, this is a seminar about reconciling differences in lore. No gaming will be involved.

Okay. If you say so. Maybe we will all game and leave you out. lol.

And BTW... FR lore is jaded and worse than a rough trick named Jim. lol.

Lore is resplendent among the realms in general. Deities die and are resurrected on a yearly basis. The designers cannot seem to get their lore straight. Evermeet; Island of Elves pretty much declared how the different sub-races of elves and gnomes and dwarves entered Faerun over -30,000 years ago. That lore is to the tooth. But designers have found a way to incorporate new history amongst the ancient history with every new edition of D&D.

So yes, let's bring the lore. I for one will bore you with ancient elven kingdoms.

Has there been any further communication on this? I've not seen any invites or meeting links or anything, and I want to make sure I've not missed an email.

I haven't received any new emails from GenCon. I did find this on the website that may help:

"Iriaebor is a fine city. So what if you can have violence between merchant groups break out at any moment. Not every city can offer dinner AND a show."

My sob story: I had a ticket for this event and then returned it earlier today after my Saturday D&D game was moved to tonight. “At least I can attend the Saturday Candlekeep event,” I thought. Then my D&D game got moved back to Saturday, and of course some lucky person has already grabbed my ticket for tonight. Now I can’t go to either!!!

Beshaba’s had a hand in this, I’m sure. Hope they pop up on YouTube or something.

Brian said they couldn't put it on YouTube, because they would have had to get everyone's explicit approval to record it.

Well its 6 hours after this seminar (10 am in england), and that was a great first experience. I'd happily do one of those every week.

It's nice to be talking with people who share the same interest and not having to feel embarrassed about it.

And cheers for the info drop on ualintharghar. I figure dragons must have stopped off in the moonshaes to eat and nap before flying westward, so another useful date as well.

Can you share that bit? I forgot to copy it before it was too late.

Of course, i'll assume George/Eric are okay with me sharing it as George knows i catalogue absolutely everything i can find and there are 30 other people that now know of it.


889 DR: Year of the Shining Shield: The King-Killer Star is seen in the skies above Evermeet. Soon thereafter, the Green Isle comes under attack by a Flight of Dragons drawn to the elven island realm by false whispers that Xenophor Moonflower has recovered Jharakkan's Talon during his battle with Ualintharghar and brought it back to Evermeet.

Glad you enjoyed it. We are talking about doing more of these with likely more specialised topics and canvassing the fans as to what they want to talk about. We'll see.

Ooh yes, specialised by region or organisation or migration patterns or perhaps even big baddies.

I will of course attend all of them if the wife let's me

Ed Greenwood, trying to burn all of R.A. Salvatore's WOTC bridges in one go:

Bob: [exiting after being informed of the 4E Realms] "So I looked at Ed and said, 'we're gonna think long-term, because when this fails and they come back to us to fix it, we'll be ready'....back me up Ed, I'm out on a limb here"

Ed: "Yeah, Bob looked at me and said, 'WE'RE GONNA SHOW THOSE BASTARDS'"

Bob: "....those were not the words I used, Ed"



I'm still laughing at that

I lost internet about halfway through the Nine seminar. I really hope it was recorded, if not does somebody have any notes I could borrow, the last ones I got were that sylune could inhabit the bodies of the recently deceased and terrified many a family with it.

You can watch it all on Brian’s Twitch and I think Jeff Thetford is going to put it up on YouTube.

The Candlekeep Presents seminar was also great. I had never heard Elaine's voice before, so finally getting to "meet" her was awesome.

I watched the Nine seminar, this was pretty great. Was the other Fire the Canon event going to be put on Twitch to watch also? My twitch account is all janked up so I couldn't ask any questions, but I would have loved to hear more from Elaine on Liriel and maybe how to "elf" things up like she does with her writing.
