Was Khelben actually one of the Sword Heralds or just an ally?

Thanks



He was one of the Sword Heralds and used the name Murald Darmaster. He spent almost half a century in this guise in the Forest Kingdom from about 1100-ish DR.

That is really fantastic information. Thank you.

Is that in a novel that I could check out? Perhaps an accessory, or is this Warehouse 23 material? ;)

Best regards,

No, it's from Steven Schend's super secret Khelben family tree.

And to those that care to look, Murald is mentioned in a few sourcebooks (I just checked). He was quite the painter it would seem, a skill I did not know Khelben possessed.

I wonder if he painted pictures of Laeral while he was masquerading as Murald. Might confuse a few people if they come from Waterdeep to visit Suzail and see a picture of Laeral in the Palace.

It's mentioned at least a couple of times in the fiction. One of the early Drizzt books mentioned it, and it's referenced a few times in Elaine's Songs & Swords books.

Great Reader Dallison,

I would like to read up on that material. Which source books did you find Murald in?

Best regards,

Great Reader Dallison,

Thanks! I checked out the Volo's Guide to Cormyr and saw it there. I didn't see it in the City of Splendors: Waterdeep accessory, but I'll keep poking around. Makes me wonder if it is in another Volo's guide perhaps.

Best regards,
