any elminster fans around? :spam: :dragon: :dragon:
i dont know who that is.....dang....at times i feel so knowledgeable about FR, but then i quickly realize ive only read 6 books all centering around drizzt lol
elminster the highest position of a magic user in FR, he ranks just under a god. He actually talks to the gods on occasion.
But I believe there was more then one I can’t be sure it depends on what book you read.
But it might be because one might have been at one time destroyed then replaced.
Are you talking about the series called elminster? Or the person?
I'm not a huge fan of Elminster the character. I think I feel about him somewhere between what Imoen and Edwin think about him (if you know the Baldur's Gate games).
I haven't read books centered around him, so I don't know what he's like in them.
i mean the man.he has to be my fav fr char,
Yea, he's a very powerful Wizard. Although Tethtoril of Baldur's Gate is protected by no less than 3 Gods if anyone tries to harm him
Which three? I've always liked Tethtoril better.
Mystra, Oghma and Deneir.
Mystra often whispers to him during his sleep
Hehe, sounds about right. Makes sense too, why he'd loiter around Candlekeep every so often.
Why did Elminster sleep with Mystra? Or is Mystra just a bit of a whore?
Who HASN'T Elminster slept with. He fools around with all the Chosen of Mystra! Why not Mystra herself........ (which is funny, because the current Mystra used to fool around with Kelemvor)
True...Elminster is a bit of a man-whore
Well atleast he keeps them one at a time...his current toy: Alassra Silverhand (the Simbul) is a very nice choice
You know what I find funny though...when he first started out...he was turned into a woman
Elminster defies the laws of space/time and physics. A little magical sex change should be within easy grasp for him.
Well...he didn't turn himself into a woman...Mystra did XD
I'd sorely like to see him turn Volo into a squirrel
Heh..... I was a little disappointed with Elminster in Hell.... it was kinda've odd having to have him "rescued." But it was an orgy of high level spells being flung around, so it was cool in that matter.
I haven't read any Elminster books =[
He's a bit annoying at times. "Oh look at me...I'm close to godhood"...kinda annoys me sometimes :S
To true. But a few of the books that explain he humble beginnings are pretty good.
Havent read him in my Forgotten Realms adventures yet
Well, he's supposed to be the uber-character. I find him kind've annoying myself, but some of the things he does is pretty cool.
He's a meddling Wizard that's why. Pokes his nose in everything...well I find him to be that way. Other than that, he's pretty cool. He doesn't interfere too much, it's just that he's always in there for a bit -.-
