Hi Eric,
I've difficulties to describe the Plinth to my players in my Waterdeep campaign. How all the faiths can be worshipped in such a place ? Is there one altar for all the deities or a complex labyrinth where people have a room by god ?

Who does the mass ? Is there a priest/clerc for any deities ?

This place is full of mysteries, what are you allowed to say about it or how this place functions in your Realms ?

Of course, Steven you can help if you're reading this post

Thanks in advance for reading me (sorry for the english mistakes, i'm a french guy, I do my best.

Heehee... I just stumbled upon your Arvuddaern/Caerilcarn lore-nugget.
Again, I'm so excited and can't wait to see the High Forest further fleshed out, especially by such a Realms Sage as you. Still loving the Myth Glaurach Mintiper's Chapbook entry.
Actually, about that. Lord_Karsus' 'Elves of Faerûn' has both Ilygaard and Stormhawk (Arrn'Gyrlass... Sykerylor'Gyrlaszthraen?) listed as elven names but the Chapbook article doesn't specify his race. '-aard' doesn't sound particularly elven to me but maybe he's from mixed Ascalhi human druid and Eaerlanni elven stock?

I've got the High Forest close to finished. Detailing Arvuddaern is well underway. However, this will take a while. Currently over 200 pages in total, but a lot left to do. (I maybe have been a tad overambitious in what I planned out for myself.)

As for llygaard Stormhawk, I think I intended him to be of human stock (presumably Ascalhi), but i think a half-moon-elf works just as well (Ascalhi/Earlanni). Regardless, if I didn't specify, it's up to the DM! :-)

Eric, can you give me your opinion if you don't know, are weredogs succeptible to silver allergies? I know the beasties first appear in Hall of Heroes, but still. As hunters of werewolves I thought they may not share that particular vulnerability. I know many of the stranger phenotypes have differing materiel that can overcome their DR. Usually there is some type of herb to which they are adversely affected as well. Could you comment or speculate upon what those weaknesses may be for the cyanthrope. In fact, I would appreciate any lore you may have regarding this creature beyond what is given in the Bestiary, famous individuals, orders within the church of Selune that hunt lycanthropes to which they may belong, any little doggy biscuits of knowledge you may have in your notes, etc. Thanks, as always.

heehee! I found this on Erik Scott De Bie's page.

"Eric Boyd recently took the classic Under Illefarn and adapted it into a 300-page (3.5) campaign setting to run for his kids—that’s the sort of thing WotC is hoping to release, probably with lore adaptations for multiple editions."

I simply can't wait to dive into the High Forest with this ^_^

... Oooh! Almost forgot, since this is a question thread ;-P :

I'm chronologically confused about the Stronghold of the Nine, the Caerilcarn, Nordahaerril and Rheitheillaethor.
I don't have the sources handy atm. but IIRC the Caerilcarn is only founded after Laeral and her companions abandon the Stronghold and Nordahaeril and Rheitheillaethor are founded by the Caerilcarn (LEoF)... so are N. and R. fairly recent settlements? Maybe they are old wood elven nomadic communites (and new arrivals from Evermeet) who have only recently (re-)settled these places? Do you have specific or approximative dates on when any of this happens? Thanks in advance (for your answer and for what you've got in the works!)!

"wait for Under Illefarn 2.0" is totally an acceptable answer :D

Under Illefarn Anew is done. Just waiting to post it. More news as I can share it. It doesn't detail the High Forest though, just the Shining Vale.

So, Caerilcarn is used to mean the Council of the Wood, even though originally it was probably meant to be a village name.

So, I made Caerildaern a recently founded village atop the Stronghold of the Nine. It was founded with the backing of the Caerilcaern.

More details when I finish "Crown of Eaerlann: Fallen Kingdoms of the High Forest." ;-) (I've got a lot of writing to finish the adventure arc, so it'll be many months.)

I really haven't thought much about weredogs. I think the lycanthrope write-ups were Tom Costa's work IIRC.

I would note that FR7 - Hall of Heroes, page 36-37, says:

Weredogs: These Lawful Good creatures resemble large dogs such as mastiffs, St. Bernards, or German shepherds. Their bites do 1d6 points of damage. They have 3 hit dice +3. Were-dogs appeared as a canine counter to the werewolves. They are often Good-aligned people whose personalities were so strong that they managed to alter the effects of the impending lycanthropy. Weredogs are sworn to destroy the more numerous and powerful werewolves. Unfortunately, most people still have trouble telling weredogs and werewolves apart. Consequently, those the weredog tries to help may be scared and turn against it.

So that suggests a couple of things:

1) Weredogs probably have the same strengths and immunities as werewolves. (As they altered the transformation to good, not evil, through force of will.)

2) Given their dedication to eradicating werewolves, that might suggest that many are actually devout servants (paladins, favored souls, clerics) of Selune who contracted lycanthropy in service to the church. With the Moonmaiden's blessing, they became weredogs, not werewolves, as part of her neverending battle with the Beastlord. Most probably threw themselves into battle with werewolves, battling the followers of Malar until falling in battle.

3) The most famous weredog was probably the legendary Boomchicka Bowwow.

--Eric

PS Remember I said it only suggested two things. :-)

It's been a while, and I think there was an old Polyhedron article on the Cult of Ao that might be applicable. (Can't check at the moment.)

One idea is a large room with altars in a circle around the periphary. Each church has an "alcove" in which to pray, and guards make sure that they don't interfere with each other. (There are probably prohibitions on the types of rituals that can be performed and which faiths are allowed in the Plinth at the same time.)

Alternatively, there's a large stone in the middle of the room. Priests bring their own "traveling altar" in with them and set it on the stone during their rituals. Some ancient magic of the stone keeps any one faith from establishing permanent effects in the Plinth.

For fun, George and I are co-writing a High Forest sourcebook and adventure path.

Sourcebook is basically done. Mark Taylor's doing the regional maps. Lots of goodies to come!

Well, now that the cat's out of the bag - I can promise you guys its all drool-worthy. The lore is SUBSTANTIAL, and thoroughly cross-referenced.

Wish I could say more... soon, hopefully. Lets not forget Eric's brilliant Under Illefarn Anew is also complete.

People keep worrying about 'the future of the Realms'. Let WotC worry about it's future - we have its past. And when you can't go forward, then you have to think like a dwarf - you go DEEPER.

Will we have to wait for the adventure path to be done before the sourcebook can be consulted?

Hey Eric. I just saw you were one of the authors of Faith & Avatars. I started D&D with 4th Ed and the Living Forgotten Realms. The first book I got beyond those was F&A. It's always been my go to book when it comes to the deities of the Forgotten a Realms regardless of era or edition, so Thankyou very much.

Eric, forgive me, I'm sure this has been asked before. Did you finish conversion notes for all installments of the Age of Worms AP? I can only find a few over at Paizo. 124, 129, 130 and just now, 126

Edit: never mind. I found them by searching for ''supplement'' instead of ''web enhancement.''

ERIC
Since you mentioned being the one who wrote lore for Lapaliiya, I have a question. I know the region is suspicious of arcane casters thanks to the Rage of Wizards, but is it anything more than that? And are some places prone to treating arcane spellcasters with any form of hatred, prejudice, discrimination? Now is this for all arcane casters or only Sorcerers and Wizards (and probably Beguilers and Warmages) bother them, but not so much Bard (or Spellthief or the weaker caster sorts)? Are wizards heavily regulated? Is there a shortage of wizard guilds, schools, and other such large gatherings? Does trade with its neighbors to the south in Halruaa, a land known for having a high population of wizards, influence them in any way? (I know Lapalgard is a waystop between the two nations in terms of trade).

Another question is can you tell us anything more regarding Lapalgard? Inhabitants, customs, sites, shops, taverns/inns, guilds, etc.? Just curious because I have a group of PCs that magically ended up getting transported far from their last locale and are stuck in Lapaliiya so they are trying to get back and Lapalgard is their first stop.

Born in the Year of the Starfall (1300 DR), Filarion “Filvendorson” Floshin (CN male gold elf spellthief CAdv 9 ) is the only son of Filvendor “Lightfoot” Floshin (see Chapter 1) and Elsarassa Cerinlar (born 1182 DR, died 1315 DR), a moon elf who once served in Lord Elorfindar’s employ. ...
Late in the Year of the Moonfall (1344 DR), Filarion “retired” from life on the road and returned to the lower Delimbiyr Vale, where he had been born.



Filarion and his mother Elsarassa are given as elves. Yet Filarion retired from adventuring at 44 years old. Isn't that quite young for an elf?
Could it be that both of these chars were intended to be half-elves? Filarion was born when Elsarassa was 118 years old which would be quite old for a half-elf yet rather young for an elf (coming of age for moon elves is around 110 years if I remember correctly). Also, she died at 133 years already.

When I wrote it, I was using 2e rules, so they were standard vampires.

What I envisioned were uniquely drow vampires that could easily blend in with drow noble society without drawing much attention. So their appearance would be more "drow-like" than "undead-like." Their powers would be unique, logical enhancements of natural drow noble powers, however they were articulated in the ruleset-de-jure.

In other words, they should function as drow nobles with unexpected powers and motives, rather than monsters.

It's the one worshiped by orcs above the High Moor.

Flashburn! (is there any more information about her in Dragons of Faerûn beyond her being given the draconic name Maughrysear on p. 153?) As always: more thanks than Sigil has portals for all you bring to the Realms!

Was there ever a "Lost Chapter" in Dragons of Faerun concerning information on updated information of the Draconic Pantheon, originally presented in 2nd edition's "Draconomicon?" A product description of the book mentioned information on the Draconic Pantheon before it's release. But I am sure it was cut, sadly, considering that was what originally sold me on the book. Would it be fair use to share with us with what was written, and never published, here at Candlekeep?

Had some questions that started rattling around the brain box recently. With respect to the terrific work you did with the 2e FR gods books, how did you come up with their avatar classes and levels? Drawing more "in-universe" for the deities themselves, did they just pick and choose what classes, levels, and attributes their avatars had? Or would it be based on something else like the deity's own competency like the 3e approach where the deity had their own clases/levels.

Back in the 2e days, did you consider if there was an upper limit to the class/levels a deity could manifest? In the 2e model, could Mystra have rolled out of her megic bed one day and decide to fashion a level 113 wizard/Fighter 50?

Unrelatedly, I've been going back through my old Realms catalogue and am continuously floored by the quality of the content in each work you contributed to. Thank you so very much for that.

Greetings!

This has probably been asked before, since we've been enjoying Power of Faerun for almost 10 years now (!!) but I'm having no luck with google.

There are 8 Coats of Arms, on pages 63, 67, 69, 70, 73, 75, 76, and 79. Which companies or houses do these belong to?

Thank you!
