    To met: Well, you used another different wording and it virtually makes me go wtf especially when that term is non-existent in FR. And I believe I'm not the only one lol! :D

    To Dragn9: Yeah bingo on that. You got it right on the spot. :)

    Wow, even Wiki has gone gay. Amazing... :S Go to the FR wiki if you've got the chance. The info there is much more accurate...

    to Met/Az82: I don't think that I've ever seen Gates to the Heavens in a drizzt novel, but I think maybe in other FR ones. And I'm sure that in the games Icewind Dale II and Baulder's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, you can find a book item referring to helm during the time of troubles, and it says he "stood before the Gates of Heaven" and when the battle between helm and Mystra, milady, he blocked her entrance from the Gates of Heaven. So, maybe R.A. Salvatore just doesn't like that term. :)

    It wouldn't be found in the Drizzt novels. It's Time of Troubles stuff, that's like "ye olde days" stuff in terms of FR history. Dunno why Salvatore would write about it.

    Lol wtf, wiki hasn't gone gay just because it uses a different term >_<

    tbh, I've done a check on the FR wiki on the Gates to Heaven and it's like "dude! no related articles". Tbh Graft, the whole Gates to Heaven wasn't found in the Drizzt novels. It's actually a part of the Avatar novel trilogy and in it, the real term is "The Celestial Stairway". Only issue with this whole thing is that met doesn't like the formal term and cooked up some other term for it in his head while I prefer to stick to the original term lol! :D

    And met, why I'm saying wiki has gone gay is because it's actually using a non-existent FR term instead of the real one. Info wise, it's still as accurate. It's just only the damn stupid issue of the term used.

    Ok, I think we've gone on long enough on this shit. Might as well we let it rest since this will just go on and on without any end. >_<

    You do realise I have to remember these questions off the top of my head. I'm not going to remember every term accurately. I don't surf the net to answer the questions or ask them. I do them based on what I remember, because I feel it should be done from one own experience with FR, not just googling the answer or a hard question.

    Enough of this met. I've said that we should let this stupid topic rest even though I admit that I start this stupid argument. Anyway, wtf is taking Dragn9 so long? Is that guy on the same timezone as you met? :S

    Erm, I don't know if you ignored the posts above you, but the question given by Dragn9 was:

    What was the name of Chogurugga's "prized son"? (Hint: I can't remember where it was first mentioned...but I know it's mentioned in Sea of Swords)

    The name is familiar, but nothing I can bring to mind at the moment. Not sure about the spelling of the name...
