was a small city in the kingdom of Cormyr
, lying where the Way of the Manticore
crossed the Wyvernflow River
. A town sprawling across both sides of the river, it was sometimes nicknamed the "Jade Towers" for its ubiquitous green slate roof tiles. Wheloon grew up around the Wyvern Ferry crossing
, linking Cormyr's two busiest trade routes, and becoming one of the kingdom's most prosperous and industrious towns. It was famous for its talented craftsfolk and entrepreneurs, who built boats and wagons, fashioned baskets, grew fruit and other foodstuffs, bred pets, and created cheap transport companies.
Though it once was the site of a battle with the Witch Lords and was one of those places conquered by the Lost King Gondegal, Wheloon oft-enjoyed only a small role in Cormyr's history, thanks to rulers like Lord Sarp Redbeard who worked for the good of Wheloon, rather than that of the crown. Unfortunately, it later hosted a false temple to Mystra, which was found to be a front for cultists of Shar, and was eventually turned into a prison city for Shar worshipers and Shadovar, and its cobbled streets came to be dominated by gangs of rogues.
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.
