Vandria Gilmadrith

Since the Chosen of Eilistraee is a religious oriented player group, naturally there is a place to have theological discussions. That is in-game religions; please leave real-world religion out of it. Debate the fine points of a certain dogma, how a church can enforce worship while staying true to its tenets or simply why one deity is better than another one is. All are free to talk about it here.

Vandria Gilmadrith

Post by Bhaern Quel » Sat Nov 14, 2020 4:01 am

I have just recently read about this goddess, sister to Eilistraee some websites indicate.

https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Eilistraee provides some information.
Vandria, who is also the daughter of Corellon and Lolth (no Araushnee in core D&D), but an elven goddess rather than a drow one (though her hair, often worn in a long braid, is white due to her dark elven heritage). In her story, before Lolth's betrayal, she was a free spirit like most elven gods, and lived enjoying the beauty of Arvandor.
Another site https://forgottenrealms.fandom.com/wiki ... Gilmadrith states
Vandria Gilmadrith originates from the "Setting Neutral" sourcebook, "Races of the Wild" and it is as such unclear to what extent, if any, she is worshiped within the Forgotten Realms setting.
So in part I am asking about this possible older sister to the twins. Anyone know more about her and if ever appeared in the Realms?

Funny you should mention Vandria. She was introduced in the 3rd edition splat book races of the wild, As far as I could tell during my reading of her section in the book she hales more from the 3rd edition setting of greyhawk and is more of a very distant(being lawful good and all) counterpart than an actual sister. I do believe she wasn't really mention ever again after that not even in 4th edition.

She's Lolth's and Corellon's daughter in Greyhawk. She had originally nothing to do with the FR canon.
