Hi, the Goblin War began in 753 DR, but when did it end ?

Well if THE Eric Boyd says so, it must be true.

George, you are listed as a reference on the FRWiki Chondathan language page so I thought I would ask you. I am looking to come with a Chondathan word for Justice's Return or Law's Return and I have been unable to find anything close to justice or law. I am going to use it as the name of the festival that is thrown in Iriaebor to commemorate the city's liberation from the Zhentarim. I figure the day will have some minor similarities with France's Bastille Day.

"Iriaebor is a fine city. So what if you can have violence between merchant groups break out at any moment. Not every city can offer dinner AND a show."

Well, unofficially law is "immlin", justice is "menlin" and to return is "erdlim", but "erdla" is return as in "he made his return". The word "dul" denotes 'of' or 'belonging to' so 'law's return' would be "immlindul erdla" while 'justice's return' would be "menlindul erdla".

Note that this is all made up so you can do what you like or suits you. I suspect though that Ed would adopt the above and save himself making it up.

Thank you, good sir. There are already 22 yearly festivals so what is one more (that doesn't include the balls and cotillions the rich folk have). I should probably put all those in a list on a page to make it easier to see if something is going on when an adventuring group hits town.

Hi George!

I see you listed as having a hand in the Grand History of the Realms. Could you perhaps shed any light on Auseriel, where it is and what it is like?

I had input into the entries re Auseriel in GHotR with Eric Boyd only because we were told very late in the piece that Rich Baker had forgotten that the Tree of Souls was there and had planted it in reclaimed Myth Drannor in his novel trilogy. I came up with the idea of the white dragon attack and originally wanted the tree to be wrecked, etc. and a new sapling emerges which is then reclaimed and returned to Evermeet for replanting in Myth Drannor.

In editing the decision was made that the Tree was never actually planted there and the timeline entries you see in GHotR were inserted accordingly.

You have to understand that at the time we were not privy to the impending events of the Spellplague and 4E - this product was written in Feb-April 2007. I found out about the changes at Gen Con in August of that year. Similarly, the timeline entries after 1375 DR (notice how they move away from specific dates) were created by WotC and I was unaware of them until the product was published.

So in relation to your question, I have never detailed Auseriel in any way. No one has officially to my knowledge. WotC used to have a general policy that specific creations of particular authors were "left alone" by other writers. At least mostly. At that time, Elaine was slated to revisit Auseriel in her writing and so it never received any official attention.

Given that Salvatore has now gone with the idea of a good drow city in the frozen North I expect that Auseriel will never be mentioned again by WotC. So the good news is that you have free rein to do what you like with it.

Thanks George! Hmmm, yeah I think I am going to just run with the last thing you said and just make Auseriel my own. I have an elf PC who, for backstory purposes, is trying to flee some very bad and very powerful extra-planars who have just murdered members of his family. I'm looking for a remote and near unknown place for him to disappear to. Evermeet is too well-known, so I was thinking maybe Auseriel? I can always just create something, but I try to keep things as consistent with the lore as I can usually.

This is sad to me on so many levels (the main being that Elaine was slated to revisit it and won't now). Part of me also wants to find out what Salvatore is doing with that city for myself, just to try and keep in the know.... but the other part of me doesn't want to read all the novels that I'm still behind in in his series. Think the last one I read they went to Gauntlgrym and found the sleeping primordial.

Yeah, Gauntlgrym. Boy, is that a major headache at the moment in terms of trying to reconcile this place in the historical narrative with the various sources. We are many hours in and still going.

I forget the exactly storyline of the original neverwinter nights (think that was the name), but I remember it having the sarrukh having some kind of involvement with the heat source of Neverwinter. Granted computer games aren't canonical... and honestly, I can't remember what that plot was anymore... but I was surprised to hear they were possibly changing the heat source.

I think it actually had "Old Ones" who were a lot like sarrukh, but not specifically named as such. They were detailed for 3.5e in one of the "Silicon Sorcery" columns in Dragon.

Thank you for that. So, Dragon #303 labels them "Creator Race" and shows them as very lizardfolk like... could just as easily be a variation on dragonborn if one wanted to twist it that way, or saurials too. But definitely NOT snake bottomed, gives them bonuses to arcane spellcasting of sorts, and their clawed hands are inordinately large

George, I've looked through the stuff I have and I cannot find any references to a place called Fort Helm. On the FRWiki entry for the Bridge of Fallen Men, it is on the map to the WNW of Proskur. Could you check your extensive notes to see if you have any information about it? Combined with Stormhawk (Power of Faerun) and the Sign of the Silver Harp (Code of the Harpers), that is the only other location I have seen near Proskur.

It's from the map in the "Backdrop - Cormyr" article in Dragon #365 by Brian R James. He liked putting locations on maps and not providing any detail on the locations (or if he did, he overwrote and it got cut in editing). He did the same thing in his "Backdrop - Vaasa" article in Dungeon #117, his "Backdrop - Chessenta" article in Dungeon #178, and his "Backdrop - Sarifal" article in Dragon #376. It was kind of his thing.

Thank you very much. That lets me know I have a free hand in what to do with it without fear of stepping on established lore.

George, as a seeming keeper of languages, how are you with Gnim? I am looking for the gnome word for "Trailcloud". I figure, being an exacting sort of people, that is what they would call a chamber that had several Trail of Mists nexuses (nexi?). I am working on that Trail of Mists map and have need of that term now. I have some of the Sword Coast mapped out with there being a "Trailcloud" under the Citadel of Mists and the gnome settlement in the northern part of the Trielta Hills named Hulnimerle. There are some "bad stops" also like Warlock's Crypt and Arghenrock (both used to be gnome settlements per Ed).

I can't help you with "trail cloud" in Gnomish as that lexicon remains rudimentary. You're going to have to ask the big man himself.

Oh, and the Gnomish word for their language is "Munthar", not "Gnim".

If you look in the FR Wiki, it says Gnim (and it references your Dragon mag language article). Munthar came from Ed in one of his many answers to questions here on Candlekeep. I have Munthar in my gnome notes, or gnotes, but Gnim is easier to remember. I take it as the Common name for the gnome language while Ed said that Munthar is what the gnomes themselves call it. Kinda like how English speakers say German for the language while Germans call it Deutsch.
