Today in the Realms...

...it is 30 Flamerule, or the 30th of Summertide.
On this day:

  • Midsummer's Eve is known as the Celebration of the Moon to worshipers of Hathor, marked by a day of celebration and a night of moonlit trysts.
  • Worshipers of Lurue celebrate with a night of wild revelry.
  • Midsummer's Eve is the grandest of all the many festivals of Sharess and given to the pursuit of pleasure with even less inhibition than usual.

CitadelOfBlackAshEntrance

The Citadel of Black Ash was a temple to Gilgeam, god-king of Unther, located in the eastern Smoking Mountains near the Black Ash Plain at the apex of a 3-mile-long (5 km) valley filled with waist-deep silty ash, giant monstrous scorpions, and other hazards.

A millennium before Enlil founded the nation of Unther, a clan of dwarven explorers investigating lava tubes deep in the Smoking Mountains inadvertently awakened a great brown wyrm named Vulpomyscan. The dragon enslaved the entire clan and put them to work mining a hoard of gems and building a lair worthy of his cunning and might.

When the expanding Untheric empire eventually encroached upon Vulpomyscan's claimed territory, clashes broke out and the dragon terrorized and plundered the human settlements. Soon after, the god Marduk the Justice Bringer led an army to fight the dragon and defeated him in a titanic battle with heavy loses on both sides. After looting the Citadel, they abandoned it, and it remained forgotten until Gilgeam, son of Enlil, rediscovered it almost a thousand years later and claimed it for himself.

Realms of Valor
Realms of Valor was the first anthology of short stories from the Forgotten Realms, published in 1993. It was edited by James Lowder and features stories from many contemporary authors of Forgotten Realms novels, as well as many of their characters, in adventures tied in to recent novels and Realms events, including a Ravenloft cross-over. In the Afterword, Jeff Grubb presents a short history of the development of the Forgotten Realms to that point.

It includes:

"The Lord of Lowhill" by Douglas Niles • "Elminster at the Magefair" by Ed Greenwood • "One Last Drink" by Christie Golden • "The Bargain" by Elaine Cunningham • "Patronage" by David Cook • "A Virtue by Reflection" by Scott Ciencin • "King's Tear" by Mark Anthony • "The Family Business" by James Lowder • "Grandfather's Toys" by Jean Rabe • "The Curse of Tegea" by Troy Denning • "Dark Mirror" by R. A. Salvatore
From the secret annals of Realms history come eleven never-before-published tales of valor, featuring the greatest heroes of that magical world—Drizzt Do'Urden, Arilyn Moonblade, Adon, Elminster of Shadowdale, Jander Sunstar, and many others—told by your favorite authors, including: R. A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, Douglas Niles, Troy Denning, Christie Golden, and others.
