I figured it was time for a reintroduction. While I was at Wizards, I couldn't say much about what I was doing (FR or otherwise), but as of this month, I'm a free agent. I still can't speak about details of anything that hasn't been released yet, but I can do my best to answer lore questions about anything I've worked on that is already out. I also can't speak to the inner workings of Wizards, though I can confirm anything that's been said publicly. Standard disclaimer: I don't speak for Wizards of the Coast, everything I say in my opinion or belief, and nothing I say is canon.

Feel free to ask me about anything I've worked on, D&D or otherwise. Here is a non-exhaustive list of Forgotten Realms books, articles, and web features I've written or edited. Some of the works are not exclusively FR, but they all contain FR content. Caveat: I'm making no claim as to what is or isn't canon.

WRITER
D&D 3.5
-Dragons of Faerun, Web Enhancement, and 2 previews *
-Class Chronicles: 21 article web series *

D&D 4E
-Arcane Power
-Martial Power 2
-Open Grave
-Exemplars of Evil
-Online, Epic Insights: "Epic Binders"
-Dragon #380, Wizard Essentials: "Secrets of the Spiral Tower"
-Dragon #381, Channel Divinity: "Champions of Torm" (with Erik Scott de Bie) *
-Dragon #386, Bazaar of the Bizarre: "The Items of the Drizzt Saga" *
-Dragon #428 Bazaar of the Bizarre: "Treasures of the Far Realm"
-Dungeon #171: Eye of Justice (with Erik Scott de Bie) *

D&D 5E
-Phandelver and Below: The Shattered Obelisk *

EDITOR
D&D 5E
-Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants
-Keys from the Golden Vault $
-Prisoner 13 *$
-Phandelver and Below: The Shattered Obelisk *$
-Vecna: Eve of Ruin $

* after a title indicates a dedicated FR work.
$ lead editor

Welcome back, Eytan!

Without launching a round of complaining about WotC, allow me to say I sympathize with you and your unexpected return to free agent status. The same thing happened to me, this year, and it drew much vacuum.

Welcome back to these Hallowed Halls of Realmslore! That Acolyte Title needs to be changed!

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Glory of the Giants question

Curious... were you involved in the giant divine lore for this? I read through it with a "don't overly research it... just enjoy it" view and liked the spins that I saw, especially the use of Diancastra along with the story of Bigby being reincarnated into a gnome body.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I did indeed. If someone who can do so could help me regain access to it, I'll post through that account from now on.

You would have to ask the Admins. I suspect that you will have to prove you are the same as the orinial Eytan. I don't know how rigorous this process may be.

Yes. I thought I had replied to my own thread rather than creating a new one. If someone could give me a hand with recovering my old account, that would be great. I'm not sure if there's a way to merge this thread with that one. Or maybe we could just rename this one "Eytan Bernstein [II]"?

I was was an editor on this, but I wasn’t the lead. My only contribution to the giabt lore was suggesting that we integrate the three giant goddesses more fully into giant society. The team recognized that in previous giant lore, the goddesses had been somewhat relegated to the sidelines. We couldn't re-engineer the ordning, so the design folks added lines here and there to bolster their influence and importance. I think it was an elegant solution.

The Diancastra and Bigby content was all the design folks' efforts. The choice of Diancastra was another way to create more gender parity.

Simply out of curiosity, were you planning on anything more for Zceryll, the vestige and alienist creator of the Bone Scepter of Zceryll? What about her Black Blood Kaleidoscope, and the Rod of Taupanga?

I would love to do that. Unfortunately, I don't own the rights to that content. Anything I (and any other freelancer or employee) has written for WotC belongs to them. If I ever do freelance design work for them, who knows?

It's probably fine to continue with this thread. Could we just rename it It could be "Eytan Bernstein, part 2."

Done. I believe you should be able to rename your own threads without assistance.

I think it was more if you wanted to reinstate your old account (and post count) rather than the thread. Happy to assist here if required.
