Oh one other

Any info on this artifact Daarthos Koruna found in the sunrise mountains (i.e is it JUST seven circlets which hide their wearers or something more)

http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/frcc/20070425


hile many Thayans look down on warmages as narrow-minded louts, they can't deny the usefulness of having a contingent of these casters in their armies. From the perspective of the Red Wizards, warmages make excellent subjects because they are powerful weapons but lack the magical protections to defend themselves against mental control. A band of politically neutral warmages has arisen in Thay in recent years under the leadership of Norano Reked (N Mulan male warmage 14). Calling itself Daarthos Koruna after a strange magical artifact the members discovered in the Sunrise Mountains, the band serves Thay as mercenaries for hire. The Daarthos Koruna are seven circlets that render their wearers undetectable by magical and psionic means. For the most part, the band clears out the ruins of the Sunrise Mountains and Delhumide, but they have been known to perform special missions for a number of zulkirs.

Hmmm, what the hell.... kind of a magic item.... magical pits

There's several magical "pits" found in places where either drow are or where there might be other underdark elements. For instance

The Pit of Maleficence in the Cliffside City of Peleverai in the Shaar where Gargauth was trapped
The Dark Pit in Narathmault/Dun-Tharos
Athamault the Iron Pit (from Lost Empires of Faerun)
The Pit of Ghaunadar in Undermountain

Other than them being obvious places of great evil, is there any other commonality to these magical places? Any of them similar to the wells of darkness?

Hmmm, and I guess one final ... kind of a magic item....

The various "portals" that have opened and dropped Illuskans/northmen/Rus into various places around the realms (i.e. Rashemen, the eastern Shaar, etc...).... song paths made by the elves that got triggered by some bard singing a song they find with the "triggering controls" of the elven portal system focusing on certain words or snippets only that might have gotten reused in human songs?

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I was hoping to hear more about Aunagar and maybe how it ended up in Balagos' claws? Who was he? When was he?

Another one would be The Shadowstar. I know we have had discussions about it here on the forums but it would be nice if something "official" were to be done to clean up the lore on it. And to also say what it can do. I know that is asking a lot but if you are going to ask for submissions, I might as well shoot for the moon.
