* But the PC does fail. He died ignominously under a massive pile of rocks in his moment of nominal glory. And of those who cheered and booed him in Neverwinter, how many knew him by title ("Knight Captain", "Squire of Neverwinter"), birth ("Harborman"), or accident of circumstance ("Kalach-Cha")? And how many knew him by name? Only the ones who presumably died with him under that same pile of rocks. In a BioWare title like Mass Effect, heroism ends in victory, leaving the PC's mark on the galaxy for generations to come. In Neverwinter Nights 2, heroism ends in an enemy you can't stop--death by lair collapse.

*Shouldn't this be put [[WMG/ForgottenRealms here]]?

* Sand could never cast Teleport even if it existed in the game, as teleporting falls under Conjuration which is his banned school.

*** Not really "at will" - there's a limit per day. But yes, even 1/day would be more than enough to save herself.

**** Most likely. Also, Kaelyn's strikes were never large in nature. They were literally hit-and-run raids that last for a short amount of time to fry a few souls loose before they had to retreat as Kelemvor's forces reacted. Still, the symbolism is there that Kelemvor could use to point out that the Wall is flawed and that even the gods must remember that mortals are not their playthings. Sure, Kelemvor could theoretically just punt them out of the Fugue Plane, but so long as Kaelyn is unable to destroy the wall itself, she's harmless enough to the overall scheme of things. "A few are saved from the Wall!" is not an argument against the Wall itself as the sheer number of dead is far more immense then what Kaelyn can save. Now, could Bane or Cyric accuse Kelemvor of shirking his duties while this goes on? Certainly possible, but it may not be a fight that those two may want to get involved in.

*** Given that the entire universe got reshuffled it could easily go either way.

** Also - Githzerai - she runs on Planescape rules for these things.

*You should all be nicer to Grobnar, he's a bro. Qara, on the other hand...

[[WMG: Toril is an alternate Earth with more oxygen in its atmosphere]]
That would explain the awesome strength and toughness of many characters there. Also the huge insects, whose growth would only be possible on a world with a higher level of O2. And the incredible flammability of buildings.

** But they're ''not'' the only characters to die. Grobnar and the Construct both get squished by a pillar, and Sand dies if he defected...and in that case, Qara dies anyway. If you were a downright jerk to her, Neeshka turns on you and has to be killed. Really, with the right (or wrong) playthrough, you can lose over half of your original party members.

** That's a common misconception. It's a symptom of the stupidly stripped-down version of the Realms we get in 4E. The Fugue Plane gets a single paragraph in the new setting that basically says it's where souls go after they die and that Kelemvor lives there. The setting also makes no mention of Kara-tur, Maztica, or Zakhara, but are we going to assume they no longer exist either?
