Observed

Velsharoon is referred to as the "Lord of the Forsaken."

Expected

Velsharoon's correct title is "Lord of the Forsaken Crypt" and should be listed as such in these references. This title is consistent throughout all references to him in the Forgotten Realms 2nd and 3rd edition canon.

Notes

Strings 50064 and 50070 have VO. At a minimum the strings lacking VO should be updated.

Referring to Velsharoon as a "Lord of the Forsaken" implies that he has some concern or domain over those who are abandoned or deserted, which he does not. Velsharoon is a demipower of necromancy, necromancers, lichdom, evil liches, and undeath--those who forsake, or seek to forsake, the grave.

Only two of the strings from this bug report (50059 and 50534) have been corrected. 50064 and 50070 still refer to Velsharoon as "Lord of the Forsaken."

#8 Updated by Anders Svensson almost 3 years ago

Yes, they have VO and won't be changed.
