Down-to-earth divinity[]

Hello Lhynard! About the article from Dragon magazine 54, that would really be interesting to know if it should be taken as Canon (at least when it does not contradict anything else). Please keep me up-to-date when there's any answer! There were some more things based on it added to the wiki, I guess we might have to revisit them. I did not check earlier and have only now realized how much earlier than the Forgotten Realms products that Dragon article was. Anyway, specifically for Nobanion, there's this other source that seems to call him Aslan, Polyhedron 115. Or is there any indication that that sentence in the article is mistaken?

Hello Lhynard! Any news on that front, given the continued work on Sneel and the corresponding new post about him? Daranios (talk) 13:26, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay! Some of us decided that, since it predates the publishing of the Realms and since the purpose of the article is to describe how DMs might create their own pantheons (as opposed to presenting lore), it should not be treated as canon. However, Ed has since then confirmed that the rat god indeed is within the canon Realms. ~ Lhynard (talk) 00:14, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for informing me. Good to know. Any objections to adding Aslan as an alias for Nobanion based on Polyhedron 115? I don't have access to that myself, but no reason to doubt what's currently in the article. Daranios (talk) 18:11, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
As much as I must admit that I hate that it does, the fact is that #115 does indeed say that, so yeah, you can add it with its source. ~ Lhynard (talk) 18:33, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

Dragonwrought Kobolds/Urds[]

Hello, I'm not sure if you saw the message on my Talk page replying to you. I haven't figured out how notifications work on these wikis yet, but I'll drop it here just in case:

"Thank you for reaching out & welcoming me. I don't edit wikis much & will try to remember your advice. I left a response on the Talk:Dragonwrought kobold. BlackRamSage (talk) 16:02, 16 June 2021 (UTC)"

In that response I mention editing the Urd Page's cover-image. Other pages have tabs for specific editions, so the current image can be the 2e representation. This was the only 5e image of an Urd I could find: - via VGtM. The GHotR also reuses an image from RotD with a caption identifying it as the blue Dragonwrought kobold "Kuraulyek, the First of the Urd":

This last image is currently used for the Dragonwrought page, but with that caption should also be used for image-less Kuraulyek page in my opinion. BlackRamSage (talk) 07:10, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Noctumancer deleted.[]

Hi Lhynard, just saw that you deleted my article for plagerism. I quoted it right out of the manual and stated it was from Tome of Magic by WoTC in the article. Did I miss something here?

That's exactly what plagiarism is, copying stuff from a book. Additionally, this wiki is focused on lore, not crunch. --SilverTiger12 (talk) 05:05, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

Shaliim Wyrmslayer[]

Shaliim Wyrmslayer is suppose to hire adventurers to find ancient lore on how the yuan-ti defeated the old great dragons. Where would I find the information relating to that? I have looked everywhere and I haven't found anything.

I have no idea. I have never even heard of Shaliim. sorry! ~ Lhynard (talk) 23:07, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
Shaliim Wyrmslayer was mentioned in two 3e sourcebooks - Serpent Kingdoms and Shining South (sourcebook), but i doubt his adventures were ever in published materials. -Artyom.pavlov (talk) 23:12, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
I wrote the Shaliim Wyrmslayer article, there's nothing more known about this storyline. As for yuan-ti versus dragons, hunt around the wiki in yuan-ti history, or else check out Serpent Kingdoms, or, of course, make something up for your game. :) BadCatMan (talk) 23:34, 1 October 2021 (UTC)


Dear Lhynard I searched the sources and I know for sure that Guulvorg is a creature that appeared in Monster Manual V 3.5 and Monster Manual I 4 e. What shoul be done to start a page for the creature I mmean just the basics because I'm not so good in editing.

This is the wrong wiki for that. If you want to create those articles, you should find another wiki to host them.
You did an okay job starting the articles otherwise. Though you would need to fill in some more text, especially adding a lead sentence describing what the creature is.
