- SilverTiger12 explored, and then escaped, a temple to the naga deity Ssharstrune, and was hunted by a ha-naga and its nagahydra, bright naga, and nagatha minions. Afterward, the Tiger went down, down to goblin-town, meeting the mysterious goblins of Grodd and the brutish norkers, before being hunted by a varag.
- Ir'revrykal sunk his teeth into some new books: the Book of the Raven, Mazfroth's Mighty Digressions, and the so-called The Joy of Extradimensional Spaces. And those teeth? They're the notorious Teeth of Dahlver-Nar. Ouch.
- Artyom.pavlov is making himself comfortable in the Tethyrian town of Mosstone, but he had to drop the Cynicism first. At the Oak-Father's Boon, Artie stuffed himself silly on olive oil crust pies while documenting other magic items like a scarab of goodwill, The Salamander's Tongue, and The Great Oak, which was left behind by a druid.
- We welcome the disturbingly named Stabbier, who's documenting the Seven Imaskarcana, and the confusingly named JC10169, who went to the divine realm of Azuth and all they got was a lousy rod of absorption.
Featured ArticleIoun stones were rare but renowned magical stones and gems that orbited their owner's heads and bestowed a wide variety of powers and enhancements according to their shape, color, and composition. They could only be crafted by experienced spellcasters well-versed in the creation of magical items. Only certain gems could be used, known collectively as "the nine secrets", though there were at least ten. Some unique ioun stones carried essences and souls from once-living beings, which gave them their power.
They were first created in the year −3462 DR by the precocious young Netherese arcanist Congenio Ioun, marking him as one of the greatest arcanists of his age. By the 14th century, ioun stones were much desired and highly valued, though Congenio Ioun himself had been long-forgotten, with only his name surviving in his creation. Great collections were found in Athalantar, on the Wyvern Crown of Cormyr, and around the head of the mighty lich Larloch, the Shadow King of Warlock's Crypt.
New & Upcoming ReleasesOne-Eyed Jax: A Forgotten Realms Adventure is a short audio story written by by R.A. Salvatore and narrated by Victor Bevine. Published by Audible Originals, it was released on June 3, 2021, exclusively on the Audible streaming app.
Featured SourceTreasures of the Savage Frontier is a Dungeons and Dragons computer game developed by Stormfront Studios and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. It is the sequel to the popular Gateway to the Savage Frontier video games, and was the first ever role-playing video game to feature romance with an AI companion.
The players are the famed Heroes of Ascore who recently halted the Zhentarim's plans to conquer the Savage Frontier and the Moonsea. Continuing this journey of heroism, they are called upon to protect ambassadors from the Lords' Alliance. In a turn of events, the Zhentarim and their allies regroup, abduct the ambassadors one by one, and "replace" them. The new "ambassadors" of the Lords' Alliance smear the Heroes of Ascore as traitors, and the party must regain their well-earned name. Treasures of the Savage Frontier sees the party reaching new heights, from freeing the oppressed people of Farr Windward to slaying the great white dragon, Freezefire.
Today in the Realms...
- The thief Tiep found himself pressed into servitude by the Zhentarim, who wanted him to steal one of the Nether Scrolls that his adopted family had recovered on behalf of the mysterious Lady Wyndyfarh.
- The gate-town of Glorium connected the Outlands to the plane of Ysgard and so was appropriately nestled between towering mountains on the shore of a handsome fjord and surrounded by glaciers.
- Ranguri, capital of the Kuong Kingdom of Malatra, was also called the "Temple City" because of how the city's core seemed to be one enormous, interconnected complex of temples and palaces.
- Duke Windheir was a prominent avoral and one of the Companions of Talisid, the Celestial Lion. Like the other guardinal paragons, he resided in the House of Nature.
- In a dubious case of ironic punishment, High Lord Fzoul Chembryl of Zhentil Keep permanently polymorphed the Harper spy Raenalla Quietsong into an actual harp.
- The desert centaur Tebessa al-Khawati of Zakhara found herself captured and given an unwanted haircut by Shorn cultists but was ultimately able to escape in what can only be described as a close shave.
- The darkswords were a set of twenty magical blades created by Melegaunt Tanthul, one of the Princes of Shade, as a gift for Bodvar the Black, chieftain of the Moor Eagle tribe in Vaasa.
- A dwarven thrower was a type of warhammer that immediately returned to its wielder's hand when hurled away. Mordenkainen saw this feature as both "greedy and devious" and as a good example of dwarven ingenuity.
- Ice drakes were elemental drakes found in cold deserts that could grow to a length of 12 feet (3.7 meters). They specialized in climbing icy surfaces and were, unsurprisingly, not big fans of fire.
- The Demiplane of Imprisonment was an extremely obscure demiplane that seemed to exist purely to trap intelligent creatures within, such as the unfortunate (and very evil) archwizard Madryoch of Imaskar.
And, from the archives:
- The Sun, the source of light and heat for worlds in Realmspace, was home to a variety of fiery creatures, such as firenewts.
- Trillimac, a type of fungus that grew in the Underdark, could be used to make food, writing materials, and even hats.
- The Vorkani Mountains that arced across Koryo were home to the feared Krestung and enigmatic "birdmen" who ruled its peaks.
- Bauhei, the Black Leopard, was a great spirit of Kara-Tur who was worshiped and once imprisoned by the rogue Black Leopard Cult.
- Leaves of the singing trees of Zakhara emitted beautiful tunes, luring creatures closer so that they could drink their blood.
- It took Lashilmbrar the Sly of Impiltur three separate attempts to have his elder brother Talryn executed so that he could be king.
