Emer IV notes
« on: December 06, 2019, 09:36:20 AM »
Delving deep into Emer IV. As usual, lots to develop from earlier material beyond the City of the Dead. But then there are the rumored  lost journals Loremaster Selas Vey.

Of all your upcoming projects, the final quadrant of Emer is the one I am most excited for. Really looking forward to it!

IV will be as diverse as III, not just a big desert. There is a lot going on along the coasts, and more inland... And the City of the Dead will be nothing like the Jinteni city in SE Emer. Fewer Undead, more mazes, and puzzles, and tech... oh my!

Will Emer IV also include information or "links" to Gethaena?

Anyways I am very much looking forward to the book. :)

I am afraid not. Gethaena was originally written before Shadow World and not 'canon.'

Hey Terry,
Do you mean it was written way before the actual publication of the book, and then "made to fit" Shadow World to place it under Emer?

Gethaena was written long before there was the idea of an integrated Shadow World. I stuck it underground in the old atlas, but had no plans in future integrating it. I'm sure it will still be available.

With the death of Terry, unfortunately I do not think we will ever see it published. Or maybe in an uncompleted version, if I.C.E. already has what Terry had written?

I was so looking forward to Emer IV. I hope something can be done eventually.

Terry had said that he had the guide to the area completed, and was simply working on City of the Dead.  I had suggested to him that he do the latter as a standalone, and he liked the idea and was looking into it.  I think ICE can publish a complete Emer IV, and that it would be a fitting tribute to do so.
