I'd like to take back what I said above Shar in my post above. I don't see her being de-powered too soon, or at least not permanently. Mystra is meant to have an eternal rival, and Shar gives her that.

Where is it written that she must have an eternal rival?

And why can't that rival be Cyric, instead of Shar, who should be busy with her rivalry with Selūne?

IMO, of course. It's just that all gods seem to have rivals.

Cyric? No, he's not a rival of only one deity. He's everyone's enemy! Okay, except Shar. But knowing her, I'm nearly sure she must be plotting to someday kill him herself...when he outlives his usefulness to her. And by that time, all deities, including Selune and Mystra, would most likely thank her for it.

Resurrecting an old thread here as I just got around to reading this series.

In chapter 28 of BED, after Marlin Stormserpent is killed, 'A lone person came in, hooded and cowled, and made straight for the dead noble.' This person carried Stormserpent off into the forest and was never spoken of again in the book, nor later in Enraged. Does anyone have any theories as to who this mysterious person was? As he walked he sang, 'But she had eyes, those nightdark eyes, only for meee... For I walk a lonely road, a hidden road, a bright road, yes I walk a...'

I'm sure there are several hints in there, but my lore knowledge is lacking. Would love to hear any theories from the loremasters here at Candlekeep.

Thanks!
