I kinda spaced that night, too -- so if you'd been online, you'd've easily gotten it posted before I remembered.

Another late Monday night, and we once more have two great things: New Realmslore from Ed, and me beating the Sage to the punch with it!

Hmmm. Sages of Multiple Earths?

Oh, that would make things so much easier.

Strangely enough, I'd forgotten anyway. So even if I were online, I don't think I'd have remembered about the link.

More offline troubles, I'm afraid, so I missed this one too.

Cool, it's like the realms version of the survival knife craze after Rambo First Blood

I wonder what happened to mine?

Not Thar, now i have to go back and rework all my homebrew ideas around Iyrauroth and Vorbyx.

But despite that, i'm glad old realms are getting some love once again, i only scanned it but im sure i saw the date 322 DR which means its pre spell plague, yay.

Well I've read the Thar article and it's awesome and I thank my lucky stars that Ed didn't invalidate any of my ideas for Thar.

In fact I notice his date of 451 DR for the destruction of the ogre kingdom of Thar matches a date I randomly picked in my thread about Thar.

Maybe an idea of mine made it into the realms, and maybe it was complete coincidence. Either way I'm a happy, happy man.

I had project meetings all day yesterday, again, and always, it seems, on a Tuesday.

Frustrated Sage!

I'll get you next time, Wooly. Next time. Hahahaha!

They were really slow to get that one up! Usually they are up at midnight, Eastern, but that one was 12-15 hours late.

And I was home by then. I should've checked, but I assumed Wooly would've posted the link earlier in the day while I was in meeting.

Perhaps the WotC employee who was responsible for posting the article suffered an unexpected visit from lizardmen.

I'm clearly going senile. For the life of me I can't find the bit of realmslore that I could swear was published here about how Iyrauroth and his spawn destroyed Northkeep and Tharniir. Any pointers?

It's the third paragraph in the "What Came After" section at the end of the "Cauldron of Monsters" article.

And they are way, way late, again... On top of that, when I first tried to get to the article this morn, it kept throwing all sorts of server errors.

Today, we learn about another beholder: The Thralls of Xaerogleth

I don't know if this one was late or not -- I forgot to check, last night!

This week, Ed gives us an Amnian merchant family: The Cleft Coin

I think WotC has decided to just give us our Edlore at random intervals, now... For a while, it was consistently right at midnight, Tuesday morn, and now I can't find any discernible pattern to when they post it...

Anyway, today we have a site of some import to the City of Splendors: The Traitors' Mill

I didn't see anything... But it wouldn't be the first time WotC dropped a web feature (that I liked) without warning.

If it's canceled, Ed hasn't been told. He's sent in at least a hundred columns, so there's at least 14 to go as I type this.

Hmmm, kind of reminds me of my Sleyvas' magical battery spell from 2nd edition that I later adapted as a class ability for my mystical disperser prestige class (it works better as a class ability, though one could adapt it as a feat).
