Have any Forgotten Realms fans here heard the 4E spoilers?
If they're true, it looks like a shark jump of Saga rules Krynn/World of Darkness proportions.
Copypasta from the Realms mailing list.
"Although this has already been revealed in the novels, most of the Drow
gods have been axed. All that's left is Lolth, Eilistraee, and
Ghaunadaur. Later Ghaunadaur is attacked by Lolth and moves to the Deep
And in 1383 a bunch of dwarven deities bite it. Gorm, Heala, Laduguer,
and Deep Duerra die in battle with each other. The book says that
Hammergrim "disperses" into the Astral. To me, that sounds like it
breaks off from the Fiendish Planes and is toast.
In 1384 DR, Tyr kills Helm in a romantic misunderstanding over the heart
of Tymora. Though nothing can be proved, the gods believe that Cyric is
somehow involved in Helm's death.
In 1385 DR, With help from Shar, Cyric murders Mystra in Dweomerheart,
destroying the plane and Savras, as well as sending Azuth and Velsharoon
into the Astral plane. Cyric gets put under "house Arrest" for the next
1000 years by Ao.
Magic bursts from the bonds of the Weave. Thousands of mages are driven
insane or destroyed, and the very substance of the world becomes mutable
beneath the veils of azure fire that dance across the sky.
Finally, we have the Spellplague. Apparently many planes are "shifted"
or destroyed. The book states that only the greater gods can protect
their respective planes from the destruction. I think this might mean
that some of the lesser [and intermediate] gods might not make it.
The last sentence of the book says that the Weave is destroyed and the
"old world" ends and a new one begins. What that means is anybody's guess."
Thoughts? I think this would be a cool AU (though in my campaign Vhaeraun isn't dead, dammit), but an odd direction to take canon. Considering the braintrust at WotC these days, this is shaping up to be Time of Troubles on crack.
