Ladies and Gents,

Hello! I hope this is the right/best place to ask this, but I registered specifically to see if anyone has the answer...

Jolene of Samprastadar. Important lady, yes? Yes. So where is Samprastadar? I mean, it can't very well be some podunk backwater if the daughter of the Plar of Veluna has taken is as her demonym, can it? So where/what/how big is it?

Many thanks in advance,

LL

Looks like, per Jason Zavoda's index, that it is mentioned in the LGG on page 130:

Quote:

Samprastadar [TWN]
LGG - 130


And that's the only place we know of it for sources published prior to 2003.

Allan.

Thanks for the replies, gents! Glad to know it's not just me that's coming up empty on this. Never even heard this place-name until recently. I've been playing since '78, and it's always just been "Jolene of Veluna"...

As far as it being a town, that's speculation on Jason's part unless he knows something we don't. Though that does make sense.

I think it's the name of her noble house, not a town. It's common in the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer to add "of [noble house]" to the name of nobles. As in "Baron Anladon of Neheli," "Ivid I of Naelax," or "Duke Luschan VIII of Rhola."

That is true. Also [TWN] indicates anything from a hamlet to a city.
