n my 30 years of stomping around the Forgotten Realms, I never put together that “Waukeen” and “Joaquin” sound the same until one of my current players made a reference to her re-emerging as a deity as “Waukeen Phoenix.”
Heh. I suspect it was.
"Suspect" because I didn't create Waukeen. I think @GrubbsTweet did. One of the nicest and most creative men I know, and a friend I value.
I always think of Waukeen as "there she goes, the Merchantsfriend, Waukeen away with all the money." ;}#Realmslore
