there are nine Jewels of Neverwinter as well as nine bodyguards to previous Lords of the city (the Neverwinter Nine). Is this coincidence or does the number nine hold greater significance in the City of Skilled Hands? It holds greater significance beyond those. As well as being a friendly hello to my friend Roger Zelazny, of Nine Black Doves and Nine Princes In Amber fame.
I'll check my NDAs to see what more I can tell you…(may take a few days)…#Realmslore
