On beljuril dragons

@Irrevrykal

Greetings, learned sage. As far as I can tell, beljuril gems are only found in the Realms. Does that mean beljuril dragons (Dragon #265, the "Earthstokers" article) are also found on Toril?

@TheEdVerse

Yes. :}

On Yan C Bin and Lissa'aere working together

@kintsugikind1

Ed of the Greenwood, our scholars once again worry about evil alliances.

Yan C Bin and Lissa'aere both have Chan as their primary enemy--are they working together? If so, who calls the shots? How do they navigate the rivalry between Yan C Bin and Pazuzu?

@TheEdVerse

They aren't working together. Such an alliance would be VERY formidable. Yet the nature of the entities involved would make it unlikely. For which everyone else should be very thankful. ;}

On Giant word for lightning

@ComfrtablyNumb0

Hi @TheEdVerse, a humble Mage in a Realms game here with a question for some cool rp flavor. What's the Giant word for Lightning? My Wizard character recently learned the Simbul's Spell Matrix, and using that word as the activation would be awesome #128513; cheers & thanks in advance!

@TheEdVerse

In the Jotun tongue, lightning is uvarild (literally: "stormfire").

As opposed to literal fire in the sky (i.e. from fire magic, or a volcanic eruption), which is ildglang (literally "fireabove").

On Common words for an asexual

@JRQMTM

Hey, asking as a newish DM to the Forgotten Realms, is there a word in the Common Trade Tongue for an asexual? I recall reading some terms for other sexualities on the Candlekeep Forums and the FR Wiki, but I wanted to know from you. Thanks in advance!

@TheEdVerse

Sure. As a trader using Common:

If I don’t know the gender of an individual, I’d speak of them a “one”

As in: “There were six or seven ones in Triboar that asked if I had any more swan-cauldrons to sell, so that’s six-seven sales for you if you get there before they source swan-cauldrons somewhere else.”

If I know an individual is a hermaphrodite: they’re a “two-thorn”

If I know an individual is utterly uninterested in sex: they’re a “no-thorn”

If I know an individual has been gelded/wounded and no longer has functioning genitalia: “thornless” or “shorn-thorn”

If I’m speaking of an non-gendered item (garment, tool, privy), it’s a “all-moon” item

(And none of these terms are considered pejorative.)

@AlexMcclay2000

Idk why, but “thornless” had me laughing so much.

Definitely sounds like an insult.

@TheEdVerse

The Common Tongue is rough and ready, a great leveller.

"You got yer kings and your high-nosed, painted nobles, and then you got's all the rest of us, covered with the sweat and dung of honest toil. Oh, and then there's the tax collectors, rank with the stink of DIShonest toil."
