I remember seeing the name Majere in the deity section of the DL CS. Is he a god now?
|#2The_White_SorcererJan 08, 2004 11:27:10||He's dead.|
Majere has always been a god. He was one of those that Paladine called to his service. He's a lawful good deity of monks.
Majere is also a spice.
|#3zombiegleemaxJan 08, 2004 11:28:25||Raistlin died a while ago. He used to show up now and again despite this, but now he's finally moved on. Both Raistlin and Caramon's last name Majere comes from the name of a deity. The deity Majere predated them by... well the beginning of time. Majere is a scholastic deity, a "Monkish" deity, concerned with introspection self betterment.|
|#4zombiegleemaxJan 08, 2004 11:29:32||I think you might mean Marjorum is a spice, though Majere might also be one.|
|#5randpcJan 08, 2004 11:29:53||Rasitlin's been debateably dead for a long time, but he keeps managing to pop up occasionally so it wouldn't be all together difficult to bring him back if you so desired in your campaign.|
Riastlin's last saighting-in which he went into the afterlife with his old comrades was in the book Dragons of a Vanished Moon .

In War of the Twins, Raist and Caramon are talking about spices around a cookfire. A spice they used to use for rabbit stew was called majere.

|#8zombiegleemaxJan 08, 2004 11:37:42||No, its marjoram.|
|#9talinthasJan 08, 2004 11:51:22||yeah, if you keep reading that scene, you'll see that caramon says the spice sounded like their name, and raist says "the name of the spice is marjoram"|
and Gilon took his last name from the diety.
|#10The_White_SorcererJan 08, 2004 12:02:43||Then it might've just been wrong in the Finnish translation.|
|#11talinthasJan 08, 2004 13:44:00||i'll check next time i'm home. Although, i'm not sure i have a copy of the finnish translation of legends...i think my foreign editions are in japanese, german, and polish.|
hmm. looks like i gotta go hunt for some more =)
|#12b4realJan 08, 2004 14:21:44||Is the name of the spice really all that important?|
|#13zombiegleemaxJan 08, 2004 14:43:41||Well, marjoram is a real spice.|
