According to Ed Greenwood (see, there are a number of back ups should Randal Morn fail to produce an heir.

There is there lots of juicy lore like that from Ed at Candlekeep which would really help to fill in lots of gaps in the FRWiki but I think the policy is still not to include them, sadly. I'll find a clause one day hopefully, which will mean the wiki counts them as official. I think Ed has even said his responses are tehnically offical by default but I can't quite find the post.--Eli the Tanner (talk) 03:30, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Good Article statusEdit

no (missing a ref. about the Tarkhen Hills)
Nearly complete 

I've been trying to find a reference for the Tarkhen hills, but have come up empty so far. However, I do know that the text in our article was probably copied from either here or here, so it might be plagiarism unless the original author was also the one that added it to our wiki. The name is similar to Tarkhaldale and the description puts it in the vicinity of that lost Dale/Vale (just on the other side of the Desertsmouth Mountains), so it seems it could be legit. I've searched around the Giant's Craw in the Randal Morn trilogy but didn't find the word Tarkhen anywhere, but might have missed it. Perhaps Eli the Tanner can remember seeing it in there. I'll see if I can dig up Elminster's Ecologies. —Moviesign (talk) 00:59, April 17, 2016 (UTC)

I've been looking through books for a mention of it too, but to no avail. It seems just plausible enough that it might be true (part of me feels like I've seen it in an official source somewhere) so that's why I've not removed it yet. I'll keep searching.--Eli the Tanner (talk) 20:01, April 17, 2016 (UTC)
I have a feeling it may have been on the Forgotten Realms Interactive Atlas. I haven't installed my copy on my new laptop yet. Also struggling to find reference in a book though. -hashtalk 21:29, April 17, 2016 (UTC)
