I have to qualify 'humanocentric.'


The population figures, even in the 3e materials, reflect a pretty low population density for humanity.

Romance gone bad, perhaps.

With the idea that Ehlonna is part of both the Flannae and elven pantheons, I thought she could actually be the daughter of Obad-hai with an elven deity (Rillifane Rallat ...

'Cold iron' is poetic language for a sword or similar weapon made from iron.

So far as I know, it's only been portrayed as a special material in some RPG stuff and recent fantasy fiction.
