Is Diancastra in the Realms? I read on only one scroll I found here saying that while she is a giant goddess and is worshipped in the Realms, she is really just another alias of Mask. I am looking for some confirmation.

That doesn't immediately ring any SageBells, but the 2e On Hallowed Ground source doesn't mention anything specific about Diancastra worship being in the Realms. All that we do know is that she "Wanders," [as noted in her 'Home Plane' listing] so perhaps her faith has occasionally made itself a home on Toril.

I ask cause a poster mentioned in this closed thread that it was the case in the novel "Prince of Lies".

Found it, it was in the Crucible. She is definitely canon in the Realms.

I really should read crucible.

It seems to hint that Mask is also Vhaeruan and Kali as well.

I noticed the multiarmed transformation. I wouldn't say he IS them but more like he impersonates them.
