Current Clack

  • The Forgotten Realms Wiki saw its 26,000th article, with Arrow of Justice from the always-impressive Sir Whiteout. The good knight blasted back into Realmspace again, flying aboard the elven armada that fought in the great War of the Spheres, but the only conflict he saw was trading for spelljamming lore from a pushy dohwar. Going above and beyond, Sir Whiteout also conducted actual astronomy, making calculations of orbital periods and distances, the gravity of planets, and the atmospheric properties of Coliar. (Personally, I wonder if the cosmology is a highly complex 3-manifold.)
  • Meanwhile, Johnnyriot999 was kidnapped by pirates of the Inner Sea. While swabbing the decks, he heard tales of the great pirate captains—Immurk the Invincible, Methlas, and Thevren—and of the battle of the Fallen. Fortunately, he was rescued by his old friends in the Knights of the North, and hustled away, well, northward.
  • Regis87 has emerged from shadow-haunted crypts bearing back issues of Polyhedron! From Polyhedron #36 to Polyhedron #59, and onward, she's checking which magazines (sorry, "newszines") could give us Realmslore, from The Living City to Maskyr's Eye, and beyond.
  • Finally, remember that the Forgotten Realms Wiki is, as our name says, dedicated to the canon Forgotten Realms setting. We don't cover Eberron, Dragonlance, Greyhawk, or Nerath. Well, okay, we do, but only when Realmslore directly relates to those settings. But we definitely don't cover your tabletop game, player-character, or favorite streaming campaign. Try searching for a wiki dedicated to them, or make your own.

Larloch - Carl Critchlow
Larloch was a Netherese male human and a lich. He was the former Sorcerer-King of the enclave of Jiksidur in ancient Netheril and later the master of the Warlock's Crypt and Shadow King of its undead inhabitants. He was one of the oldest non-draconic beings in Faerûn and one of its most powerful mages, as well as one of the few surviving Netherese sorcerer-kings.

A lich of extreme age, Larloch's body was greatly decayed, leaving only his white-boned skeleton, with two orbs of red light in place of eyes. Streaks of emerald energy moved about his body, and at least two dozen ioun stones floated around his skull. He was also insane, his mind affected by his extreme age. Sometimes he could be calm and even whimsical. Other times he was crazed, snarling and launching spells at random.

Larloch possessed incredible power and was a superintelligent genius. He sought only greater arcane Art and was a talented and cunning inventor of new spells, magic items, and magical techniques and strategies. He forged the Death Moon Orb artifact. He was a master of curse magic, and modified many of his own spells and abilities in surprising ways. He enjoyed inflicting horrible transformations and curses on those who failed him or trespassed in his tower. He also performed cruel necromantic experiments on captured travelers.
