SO, as the premier lore person for the forgotten realms, do you think that Szass Tam could ever take down the combined forces of the Harpers, Lords Alliance, Order of the Gauntlet, Zhents, Lords alliance, and emerald Enclave? Heh. Depends on his proximity to what's hidden in the heart of Thay (see Tyrants In Scarlet by George Krashos, from this year's GenCon Candlekeep seminar, soon to be available at the DM's Guild). Your "ever" means I have to answer yes, but in MOST cases/situations, I'd reply no.
