On behalf of my good friends Erik Scott de Bie and Rinonalyrna Fathomlin (Since Erik is more of a perpetuator than a starter)
here is a scroll to discuss who is hot and who is not in the realms. (with an emphasis on who is) Please state you case as to why your choice is or isn't!

P.S. In case some find this scroll a tad juvenile......Thats what we were aiming for!

A wonderful idea, and a fun way to blow off steam, but just a friendly reminder to make sure to have fun and try not to get too juvenile. We don't want to loose our stuffy reputation . . . but seriously . . . just make sure not to step outside of the normal CoC rules.

Well, if we are going for actual temperature, I'm sure Klauth has a rather high personal temperature . . .

The usually sexually-themed exchanges between myself, the Lady Hooded One, and several of our other more prominent scribes here at Candlekeep, are largely meant in jest. We've usually tried to maintain a certain level of respectability, and have always attempted to follow the guidelines for such discussions as noted in the Candlekeep Code of Conduct [see my sig].

So long as these types of discussions continue to echo previous similarly-themed exchanges here, we won't have any problems.

My vote goes to the Laeral.

She possesses such a level of intelligence and maturity that is far more intriguing to me, than any lingering hint of physical sexuality. But that's just me. I tend to find cerebal qualities to be more "sexy," than any particular physical attributes.

Just for some equal time, I vote Valen Shadowbreath from Neverwinter Nights: HotU, even though he isn't canonical. I've always had a thing for tieflings...

His voice actor helped, too. "I'm yours to command" Oh, Valen honey, I wish...

Agree on all points. Any woman that I can sit with and have an intelligent discussion ranks high in my book. Plus, I really liked her picture in the Heroes' Lorebook. Whoever drew that should keep drawing for Wizards of the Coast.

Heh... you don't have any Illithid relatives, do you? ;)

I think Sune's avatar would be quite interesting... after all, gods are more than meets the eye. They'd have to invent some sort of Divine Splendor negation, though.
Hm. I just read through the entry for Sune's avatar, and... she can cast 20th level spells.

But you know, every 216th female you meet, has a natural charisma of 18 ; )

Now, my initial thought went to Aliiza, the half fiend, plaything of Kaanyr Vhok. After all, if she can please him .......there's got to be something hot to her.....

My vote is going to have to go to The Simbul. Just a woman in control of that much power and the fact that she doesn't hide it at all is why she gets my vote.

Wizard's First Rule: Chapter 36, Page #397, US Hard Cover (revealed by Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander).
Explanation by Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander: "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

She's my second choice.

Aliiza, becuase she is witty and an Alu fiend. But also Laeral, she has a stormy past and Khelben had a good thing with her. She just strikes me as one of the more romantically depicted Realms characters.

Elaith Craulnobur, definitely
And there was something to Manshoon (the "early one") as well.

Well, I do tend to fall for the bad guys - the evil, but cultivated ones, that is ...

Jarlaxle's okay, too ...

I was mostly joking . . . but very well. Some levity amidst all this angst can't be a bad thing.

Really? It isn't every 5th? (Hmm . . . must be just D&D rules.)

Acknowledging that the Realms is replete with incredibly beautiful and alluring folk, and leaving aside my own novel characters for the sake of fairness . . . (even though we all know Davoren is rolling in teh hotness ) . . .

I am something of an Innovindil fan, though I couldn't really tell you why. Something about elf women. If it weren't for the red hair, she'd have Cattie-brie beat a hundred ways from Shieldmeet.

My favorite Seven Sister would be Dove, though she's well and goodly married (perhaps I should write myself into the Realms as a character who can outlive Florin), followed secondly by Storm (ahem--not married, eh RW?).

My favorite lady of darkness would be Scyllua Darkhope, not necessarily for what the FRCS says about her, but because of how hot she is in my home games (what can I say? I like the fallen paladin thing).

Cheers

My vote goes for Alias. In spite of the fact that her hair always looks ridiculous, she looks great in that armor she wears.

Alias's is mine also... mmm red heads. :)

As for a not, the description of the hag in the 2e Skullport sourcebook still starts make me nauseous whenever I read her desc.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Myrmeen for me, and Loene, Aurora, Dove, Storm, Kitten... In that order. Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? The reasons for these are to many to mention; mature, beautiful, intelligent and able to thrash anyone that might bother me. Perfect.

As for not, well, elves are not my thing, so any of them. Oh and Skylla Darkhope or whatever her name is. Not a pretty sight in the pictures I have seen.

I toss in my chips for the hawtest* couple in the Realms:

Sememmon and Ashemmi! Both are quite attractive, magically powerful, and darn clever. (And since late 1374, no longer evil! :) ) I mean, check out their update in Dragon 357; it's indeed quite smexy*.

*note intentionally inane spelling

One usually has far more to fear from the soft-spoken wizard with a blade and well-worn boots than from the boisterous one in the ivory tower.

Ah yes, Alias. She goes on my list with Liriel and Storm. Liriel and Storm, while physically attractive, really get on the list for their personalities, as does Alias, though the fact that she is a red head definitely helps, and its worth noting that while the first two ladies can be seductive and playful, Alias makes the list because the last thing on her mind usually is actually using her feminine charms.

And I still love the line from the old FR comic . . .

"Nice armor."

"Its enchanted."

"I'll bet."

Also, when it comes to attractive artwork for these women, I love the original picture of Alias from Azure Bonds, the Valerie Valusek version of any of the Seven Sisters, and the Lockwood version of Liriel from the current release of the Starlight and Shadows books.

As far as not goes . . . have to agree with Kuje about Mhaug in Skullport . . . I used to really disturb one of my players, who was playing a necromancer that would drop by her shop for supplies, when Mhaug would flirt with him. It was great.

Good call...

Halisstra when she was in regular form...

Of the Seven, I'd have to go with either Storm or the Simbul.

There's a really wild energy about the Simbul and she's aggressive and confident, which are both really attractive traits to me. As far as Storm goes, she's not quite as overtly aggressive as the Simbul but she's confident, poised, she's funny, etc. So yeah, those two definitely come to mind.

Liriel definitely comes to mind in a sort of cute and malicious way. I really enjoyed her as a character.

Alusair comes to mind for much the same reason as the rest of those that I'm thinking about: she's bold and very confident and really vibrant as a person.

Shandril, when she was around.

Actually, of the Alias vessels, I'd prefer to hook up with Cat.

I thought of a "not", too. It's someone who has, to the best of my knowledge, never directly appeared in a Realms novel or sourcebook. But Fyodor obviously knew of her, when he encountered her hut dancing in a clearing. I speak, of course, of Baba Yaga.

But apparently, she can produce an attractive daughter (though she isn't native to the Realms . . . i.e. Iggwilv . . . who has hooked up with Graz'zt who kidnapped Waukeen, so in the end, its sort of Realmsian).

. . . and I think she goes by Stara Baba in the Realms.
