  在 费伦大陆Faerûn,古老王国 穆尔霍兰德Mulhorand 是仅剩的几片居民不崇敬 泛费伦神系Faerûnian pantheon 的土地之一。一支名为 穆尔霍兰德神系Mulhorandi pantheon 的神祇家族,以绝对的神权统治着穆尔霍兰德。与穆尔霍兰德帝国的巅峰时代同步,他们的势力范围一度包含现在的 参法Semphar穆洪Murghom塞尔Thay、以及 落湮沙漠the Raurin desert 的土地,但目前他们的景况已大为下降。今日,这支神系在塞尔和参法得到的仅是象征性的承认(在那里 泛费伦神系the Faerûnian pantheon 占据了实际的统治地位),而在穆洪,他们的崇拜者群体在急速缩减。除了在 阙森塔Chessenta 边缘性的影响力外,该神系已迅速开始扩张其影响力到它古老的盟友与敌人——恩瑟Unther 的土地上。随着 恩瑟神系Untheric pantheon 的崩灭,对这个泛神神系而言,扩张的巨大机遇已经浮现,但穆尔霍兰德的诸神力们需要与远更生机勃勃的泛费伦神系争夺恩瑟民众的内心与灵魂。
The ancient kingdom of Mulhorand is one of the last remaining lands in Faerûn whose inhabitants do not venerate the dominant Faerûnian pantheon. A family of deities, known as the Mulhorandi pantheon, rules Mulhorand as an absolute theocracy. At one point their sphere of influence incorporated the present-day lands of Semphar, Murghom, Thay, and the Raurin desert, corresponding to the height of the Mulhorandi empire, but their fortunes have since fallen considerably. Today the pantheon receives only token acknowledgment in Thay and Semphar (where the Faerûnian pantheon actually holds sway), and their flock of worshipers in Murghom is rapidly dwindling. In addition to marginal influence in Chessenta, the pantheon has rapidly begun to extend its influence into the land of Unther, its ancient ally and enemy. A great opportunity for pantheonistic expansion has emerged following the collapse of the Untheric pantheon, but the Mulhorandi powers are competing with a far more vigorous Faerûnian pantheon for the hearts and spirits of the people of Unther.

  穆尔霍兰德的诸神力和恩瑟陨落的神祇们都起源古老。千纪前,在 伊马斯卡帝国Imaskari Empire 的巅峰时期,那片土地的法师们挥赫着巨大的力量,骄傲着不向任何神性存在低头。在他们土地上的人口在一场灾难性的瘟疫中崩溃时,这些不信神巫师们开启了一扇通向另一个世界的异界之门。在一系列的闪电式袭击中,他们掳掠了无数的奴隶、并带回了 艾伯尔-托瑞尔星球Abeir-Toril,然后永久性地关闭了这些地方与 诸国度the Realms 之间的连接。这些新来之人来自于那个世界的两个不同地区和时期,但很快与彼此、以及幸存的 伊马斯卡人Imaskari 公民联姻,形成了一支名为 穆兰人the Mulan 的新民族。尽管受到了来自法师们的严厉镇压,但穆兰人保持着他们对其故乡世界神祇们的信仰,并为了得到拯救和解放而献上了无数的祈祷。
The powers of Mulhorand and the fallen deities of Unther are ancient in origin. Millennia ago, at the height of the Imaskari Empire, the wizards of that land wielded immense powers and in their pride refused to bow down to any divine entity. When the population of their lands collapsed in a calamitous plague, the godless sorcerers of that empire opened a pair of gates to another world. In a series of lightning raids, they captured countless slaves and brought them back to Abeir-Toril, and then permanently closed all connections between those lands and the Realms. These newly arrived people came from two different regions and time periods of that world, but quickly intermarried with each other and the surviving Imaskari citizens to form a race of people known as the Mulan. Despite harsh repression from the wizards, the Mulan maintained their faith in the deities of their home world and offered up countless prayers for their salvation and emancipation.

  艾欧Ao 听见了他们的祈祷,并召唤了 卜塔Ptah 神,后者是一位 荒宇Wildspace 的古神,其信仰起源于穆兰人的故乡世界,而其追随者在不久前出现在 国度天宇Realmspace(包含有艾伯尔-托瑞尔星球的 晶壁系the crystal sphere)。在艾欧的要求下,卜塔返回了他的故乡世界,并集合起那个天宇的两支相关的神系。他向后者解释了他们的信徒遭遇了什么,并转达了穆兰人渴求拯救的祈祷。然后,卜塔又转述了艾欧让两支神系进入国度拓展势力范围的邀请。自从伊马斯卡的术士们在两个世界之间,创造了一道阻止穆兰人的诸神进入国度天宇的、无法突破的魔法屏障以来(在流程上类似于被使用了 术士王权杖Scepter of the Sorcerer-Kings,后者的描述见《魔法百科ENCYCLOPEDIA MAGICA》卷3和《神器之书Book of Artifacts》),神系们进入艾伯尔·托瑞尔星球的唯一途径,便是在卜塔的陪伴下,派遣化身通过荒宇。卜塔解释说,由于在可预见的未来中,他们的化身将与位于 外层位面Outer Planes 的神性本质断绝,因此如果他们要与伊马斯卡法师们战斗,化身就需要尽可能地强大。而创造如此强大的化身(名为 显现体manifestations),需要牺牲巨大的神性力量。
Ao heard their prayers, and summoned the god Ptah, an ancient deity of Wildspace whose faith had originated in the home world of the Mulan and whose followers had recently discovered Realmspace, the crystal sphere containing Abeir-Toril. At Ao's request, Ptah returned to his home world and assembled the two relevant pantheons of that sphere. He explained what had happened to their faithful and conveyed the Mulan's prayers for salvation. Ptah then relayed Ao's invitation to the two pantheons to extend their sphere of influence into the Realms. Since the Imaskari sorcerers had created an unbreachable magical barrier between the two worlds that denied the entrance of the gods of the Mulan into Realmspace (in a process similar to that employed by the Scepter of the Sorcerer-Kings described in the Encyclopedia Magica Volume 3 and the Book of Artifacts), the only way the pantheons could enter Abeir-Toril was to send avatars through Wildspace accompanied by Ptah. Ptah explained that their avatars would be cut off from their divine essences in the Outer Planes for the foreseeable future, and hence needed to be as powerful as possible if they were to battle the Imaskari wizards. Creating such powerful avatars, known as manifestations, required a great sacrifice of divine power.

  和他们的许多神性子孙一样,拉Ra(日后将变成穆尔霍兰德神系的神祇家族的首领),以及 恩利尔Enlil(日后将变成恩瑟神系的神祇家族的族长),都答应了艾欧的提议。卜塔带着诸神的显现体,以一件名为 光之道标Beacon Light (描述见《瓦罗的完全魔法物品指南Vofo's Guide to All Things Magical》)的强大神器穿越了荒宇的黑暗。
Both Ra, the head of the family of deities who would become the Mulhorandi pantheon, and Enlil, the patriarch of what would become the Untheric pantheon, agreed to Ao's offer, as did many of their divine offspring. Ptah led the gods's manifestations through the darkness of Wildspace with a powerful artifact known as the Beacon Light (described in Vofo's Guide to All Things Magical).

  雷Re(拉的显现体的名字)和他的孩子们搭乘着一艘名为 万世之船Matet 的巨型战争桨帆船。(在晚上它则变成一艘名为 夜之船Semktet 的简陋驳船。)恩利尔和他孩子的显现体则搭乘着 诸神的桨帆船Galley of Gods(描述见《魔法百科Encyclopedia Magica》卷3),这艘船由河流与海洋之神 恩基Enki 建造(他选择不陪他们同行)。
Re (as the manifestation of Ra was known) and his children rode in a huge war galley known as the Matet. (At night it changed into a simple barge known as the Semktet .) The manifestations of Enlil and his children rode in the Galley of Gods (described in the Encyclopedia Magica Volume 3), constructed by Enki, god of rivers and oceans, who chose not to accompany them.

  这两支神性家族,降落于伊马斯卡帝国东北边界山脉、今日被称为 达泰伊拉·珊the Teyla Shan众神守望山脉Godswatch Mountains)的最高峰。在那里,他们进一步将剩余的神性本质分离并创造了一种凡人性形态的较弱化身,这种形态名为 转生体incarnations。这些转生体突降到下方肥沃的平原、到了他们被遗弃已久的人民之中。他们将最具才能的人培养为祭司,将真正虔诚的人转化为 神侍divine minion。(卜塔未创造显现体、转生体或神侍,因此几乎没有穆兰人崇拜他。然而,穆兰人将他当作穆尔霍兰德神系的缔造者铭记。)
The two divine families landed on the highest peaks of a range of mountains on the northeastern edge of the Imaskari empire known today as the Teyla Shan (Godswatch Mountains). There they further divided their remaining divine essences and created lesser, mortal forms of avatars, known as incarnations. These incarnations descended into the fertile plain below and went amongst their long-forsaken peoples. The most talented they made priests, and the truly faithful were transformed into divine minions. (Ptah created no manifestation, incarnations, or divine minions, and hence was never worshiped by the Mulan. He is remembered, however, as the founder of the Mulhorandi pantheon by the Mulan.)

  在过度自满的法师们意识到发生了什么之前,他们的穆兰人奴隶在公开的叛乱中起义了。许多的转生体和他们数以百计的神侍在随后与伊马斯卡术士们的战斗中被毁灭,叛乱开始失败。随后,显现体们从山脉上、沿着日后将被名为 诸神之径the Road to the Gods 的小路出现,将他们的神之怒火的全部威力完全释放。由于已经在之前消耗了太多的魔法,不信神的法师们和伊马斯卡帝国在一场毁灭了这片土地、并创造了落湮沙漠大部分的大火中迅速被毁灭。
Before the overly complacent wizards realized what was occurring, their Mulan slaves rose in open rebellion. Many of the incarnations and hundreds of their divine minions were destroyed in the subsequent battles with the Imaskari sorcerers, and the rebellion began to founder. Then the manifestations emerged from the mountains along a path that would become known as the Road to the Gods and unleashed the full power of their divine fury. Having already expended much of their magic, the godless wizards and the Imaskari Empire quickly collapsed in a conflagration that devastated the land and created much of the Raurin Desert.

  显现体们带领着遭受重创的穆兰人残余向西涌入了被 突拉米人the Turami 占据的、更肥沃的土地。祖先主要崇敬拉的穆兰人,与雷和他的孩子们一起在 阿兰勃内海the Alamber Sea 东岸定居下来,在那里,他们与突拉米人混血,建立了穆尔霍兰德国家。而恩利尔、他的家族、以及他们的崇拜者则继续前往阿兰勃内海的西岸,他们在那里建立了恩瑟国家,将“野蛮的”突拉米人赶到更西地方,即今日的 突米斯Turmish
The manifestations led the shattered remnants of the Mulan westward into more fertile lands occupied by a people known as the Turami. The Mulan whose ancestors had primarily venerated Ra settled with Re and his children on the eastern shore of Alamber Sea where they interbred with the Turami and founded the nation of Mulhorand. Enlil, his family, and their worshipers continued on to the western shores of the Alamber Sea where they founded the nation of Unther, driving the “barbarian” Turami of that region even farther west into present day Turmish.

  不久后,具现体们退隐到他们塔楼宫殿的隔绝之中,以专心突破伊马斯卡法师们修建的屏障,而留下他们的转生体和他们的人类后裔作为 神王god-kings 进行统治。偶尔这些转生体会遇弑,但具现体总是会在他们的某位人类后裔的肉体上改造出它们。在随后的几个世纪,穆尔霍兰德和恩瑟打了几场领土战争,但,本着过去的合作精神,具现体们唤醒了自己宣布永久休战,以 万剑河the River of Swords 作为两国之间的永久边界。
The manifestations retired soon after to the isolation of their towering palaces to concentrate on breaking through the barrier constructed by the Imaskari wizards, leaving their incarnations and their human descendants to rule as god-kings. Occasionally these incarnations would be slain, but the manifestations would always reform them in the physical body of one of their human descendants. In subsequent centuries, Mulhorand and Unther fought several territorial wars, but, in the spirit of past cooperation, the manifestations roused themselves to declare a permanent truce, with the River of Swords an eternal boundary between the two nations.

  具现体们是否可以重新与他们位于外层位面的神性本质联通?这个问题并无答案,因为 兽人门战争the Orcgate Wars(开始于-1075 DR)戏剧性地打断了他们的努力。最后一位幸存的伊马斯卡法师学徒——“巫术导师”塞尔德the Theurgist Adept Thayd,被认为在其-1081 DR煽动穆尔霍兰德和恩瑟的法师陷入叛乱不久前,开启了一道通向第三个世界的异界之门。在五年后的-1076 DR,一支由某个事前不为穆尔霍兰德与恩瑟所知的类人族类形成的部落,在那道异界之门出现,蜂涌穿过寻找新的土地掠夺。具现体们从他们的塔楼中出现,并率领他们的军队迎击这些“兽人”。作为回应,兽人萨满们召唤来他们神系的化身们防御。在这场名为 众神之战the Battle of the Gods 宏伟冲突中,雷于-1071 DR为兽人族的族长神 格乌什Gruumsh 所弑,许多恩瑟神系的资深成员也遭弑杀,包括 伊南娜Inanna格鲁Girru基Ki马杜克Marduk南纳-辛Nanna-Sin涅伽尔Nergal 以及 乌图Utu。然而,兽人诸神的化身们也在战斗中被严重削弱, 2年后穆尔霍兰德和恩瑟神系联合起来抵御他们,随后于-1069 DR将兽人们从该地区逐出。陨落的具现体和与其相联的转生体从国度消失,但具现体留下的部分神力被留下的诸神吸收。(祂们的逝去让其得以绕过那道古老的屏障,祂们的具现体被其位于外层位面的神性本质重新吸收。)
Whether the manifestations might have succeeded in reconnecting with their divine essences in the Outer Planes is unanswered due to the dramatic interruption of the Orcgate Wars (which began in -1075 DR). It is believed that the Theurgist Adept Thayd, last surviving apprentice of the Imaskari wizards, opened a gate to a third world just prior to his execution in -1081 DR for inciting the wizards of Mulhorand and Unther into rebellion. Five years later in -1076 DR, a horde formed of a humanoid species previously unknown in Mulhorand and Unther discovered that gate and poured through seeking new lands to plunder. The manifestations emerged from their towers to lead their armies against these “orcs.” In response, the orc shamans summoned the avatars of their pantheon to defend them. In a titanic clash known as the Battle of the Gods, Re was slain by the orcish patriarchal deity, Gruumsh, in -1071 DR, and many senior members of the Untheric pantheon were slain, including Inanna, Girru, Ki, Marduk, Nanna-Sin, Nergal, and Utu. The avatars of the ore deities were severely weakened in the battle, however, and the Mulhorandi and Untheric pantheons rallied to defeat them two years later, subsequently driving the orcs from the region in -1069 DR. The fallen manifestations and their associated incarnations vanished from the Realms, but left part of the power of their manifestations to be absorbed by the deities left behind. (Their deaths allowed them to bypass the ancient barrier and their manifestations were reabsorbed by their divine essences in the Outer Planes.)

  紧接着兽人门战争,穆尔霍兰德的具现体们为了继承雷成为神系的领导者而互相争斗。在-1050 DR,赛特弑杀了他在王座上的主要竞争对手 奥西里斯Osiris,但吸收了雷神性力量的 荷鲁斯Horus 将他放逐进了落湮沙漠。然后在-1048 DR,伊西斯Isis 复活了奥西里斯(他的神性本质尚未离开国度),而除了赛特,幸存的穆尔霍兰德神系都团结在了 荷鲁斯-雷Horus-Re 的身后。几个世纪后,在恩瑟,恩利尔(也被称作 安努Anu)退位让予他的儿子 吉尔伽Gilgeam、并从国度消失。在不久,伊师塔Ishtar 在将其具现体的力量给予伊西斯后,同样消失了。剩下的诸神隐退到他们的神殿中,继续他们规避伊马斯卡法师们构建的神性屏障的古老工作。
Following the Orcgate Wars, the Mulhorandi manifestations battled each other to succeed Re as leader of the pantheon. Set slew his chief rival for the throne, Osiris, in -1050 DR, but Horus, who had absorbed Re's divine power, becoming Horus-Re, drove Set back into the Raurin desert. Isis then resurrected Osiris (whose divine essence had not yet left the Realms) in -1048 DR, and the surviving Mulhorandi pantheon, except for Set, united behind Horus-Re. In Unther, after a few centuries, Enlil (also known as Anu) abdicated in favor of his son, Gilgeam, and vanished from the Realms. Ishtar gave the power of her manifestation soon after to Isis and vanished as well. The remaining gods retreated to their temples to continue their ancient work trying to circumvent the divine barrier constructed by the Imaskari wizards.

  直到 动荡之年Time of Troubles,穆尔霍兰德神系的状态在诸世纪中几乎未有改变。在穆尔霍兰德(以及恩瑟)的中期,两国领土大幅缩水。穆尔霍兰德神系的具现体们在这个时期只出现了一次,与古代 纳菲尔Narfell洛曼萨Raumathar 的最终一战所释放的被召唤怪物和次级神力进行交战。拜兽教Beast cults 则在其衰亡前得到了短暂的眷顾。费伦的盗贼之神 马斯克Mask,被允许在 斯库德城Skuld 培植追随者,而作为交换,欢愉与猫之女神 芭丝特Bast,则进入国度西部漫游在那里被作为 夏芮丝Sharess 崇敬,不过在穆尔霍兰德她仍然有少量在其原名麾下的追随者。
Little changed in the status of the Mulhorandi pantheon for centuries until the Time of Troubles. During this intervening age Mulhorand (and Unther) shrank significantly in territory. The manifestations of the Mulhorandi pantheon emerged only to battle the summoned monsters and minor powers unleashed in the final battle of ancient Narfell and Raumathar. Beast cults found favor for a brief period before dying out. Mask, Faerûnian god of thieves, was permitted to cultivate a following in Skuld, and, in exchange, Bast, goddess of pleasure and cats, wandered off into the western Realms where she was venerated as Sharess, though she still has a small following under her original name in Mulhorand.

  在恩瑟,吉尔伽,他的具现体参与到了恩瑟的日常统治事务中,并发生了显著的变化。一个个世纪过去,恩瑟的繁荣与势力都在衰落,随着税负的上升和民怨的增涨,吉尔伽变成了一位残暴而好妒的主上。他设法将除了 拉曼Ramman 和伊师塔(伊西斯)外所有剩余的恩瑟神性具现体通通逐出了国度天宇。(阿斯兰Assuran霍尔Hoar 则是在几个世纪前被拉曼从恩瑟逐出的,而艾欧允许他在泛费伦神系的势力范围内获得崇拜者,作为交换,密丝特拉Mystra 被允许在恩瑟受到崇拜。)
In Unther, Gilgeam, whose manifestation was involved in the day-to-day details of ruling Unther, changed significantly. As the centuries passed and Unther declined in prosperity and influence, as taxes rose and the peopled hatred grew, Gilgeam became a cruel and jealous lord. He managed to drive all the remaining Untheric divine manifestations from Realmspace except for Ramman and Ishtar (Isis). (Assuran/Hoar had been driven from Unther by Ramman centuries earlier and allowed by Ao to gain worshipers in the sphere of influence of the Faerûnian pantheon in exchange for allowing Mystra's worship in Unther.)

  当动荡之年到来时,和泛费伦神系的成员一样,穆尔霍兰德和恩瑟的所有具现体的力量都被显著削弱。神王们试图通过吸收他们的转生体(被派遣出的凡人转生体陷入了昏迷)所持有的神性碎片来恢复一些力量,但无济于事。在动荡之年期间,为了给诸世纪前被后者从恩瑟驱逐复仇,阿斯兰(霍尔)杀死了拉曼,但 安荷Anhur 得到了这位恩瑟战神的神职,并再次将阿斯兰从恩瑟逐出。
When the Time of Troubles came, all of the Mulhorandi and Untheric manifestations were reduced significantly in power, as were the members of the Faerûnian pantheon. The god-kings attempted to regain some of their power by absorbing the divine fragments held by their incarnations (sending the mortal incarnations into comas), but to no avail. During the Time of Troubles, Ramman was slain by Assuran (Hoar) in revenge for his having driven that deity from Unther centuries earlier, but Anhur seized the Untheric war god's portfolio and drove Assuran from Unther again.

  在动荡之年的结尾,艾欧驱散了隔绝穆兰人幸存诸神与祂们位于外层位面神性本质的魔法屏障。具现体们从国度消失、与他们外层位面的神性本质重新融合,而他们的转生体在昏迷中苏醒,变成了区区凡人——这些凡人有卓异能力或伟大技能,但尽管如此,凡人就是凡人。在动荡之年前,艾欧允许这些神的具现体在国度一直存在,以在国度维持一个崇拜者团体。
At the conclusion of the Time of Troubles, Ao dispersed the magical barrier separating the surviving gods of the Mulan from their divine essences in the Outer Planes. The manifestations disappeared from the Realms, having rejoined with their Outer Planes' essences, and their incarnations emerged from their comas as merely mortals—mortals with exceptional abilities or great skills, but mortals nonetheless. Ao allowed only those gods whose manifestations had maintained a continuous presence in the Realms until the Time of Troubles to maintain a body of worshipers in the Realms.

  提亚玛特Tiamat 是很久以前为马杜克所弑的恩瑟神系远古宿敌,在一支为了摆脱他们神王的暴政枷锁而绝望地投向了神王的宿敌教团的努力下,她的三首转生体在动荡之年前重现于 国度Realms。在动荡之年期间,仍然强大的吉尔伽弑杀了彩色龙后相对虚弱的转生体,但她的本质分散到了该地区内颜色契合的最强大的三头彩色巨龙身上。
A three-headed incarnation of Tiamat, an ancient foe of the Untheric pantheon slain long ago by Marduk, reappeared in the Realms prior to the Time of Troubles through the efforts of a cult who venerated its god-king's traditional enemy in a desperate attempt to throw off his tyrannical yoke. During the Time of Troubles, Gilgeam slew this relatively weak incarnation of the chromatic dragon queen, but her essence dispersed into the three most powerful chromatic dragons of the appropriate colors in the region.

  察斯萨Tchazzar,他是一头自称为“察斯萨之父Father of Chessenta”的红龙,花了许多个世纪谋求神性,他得到了其中一份提亚玛特的本质碎片。他被驱使着找出了 葛丝塔纽思Gestaniius,那是一头也成为了提亚玛特神性力量容器的跛腿太古蓝龙,然后杀死了她、吞噬了她的尸体。察斯萨感到全身涌动着神性力量,并且长出了一颗蓝色头颅。然后在他完全吸收提亚玛特的神性本质的探索道路上,他找到了 查苏乌兰卓斯Chathuulandroth 的后裔,绿色的 史考索辛Skuthosiin。在一阵包括长出一颗绿色头颅的、突如其来的转变中,他的凡人形态随后完全被提亚玛特融合,这头彩色巨龙再次显现于国度。在 诸神之战the Godswar 后,提亚玛特与吉尔伽(他发现自己的神力极度下滑、跌落到了半神力)的交战贯穿了外层位面和恩瑟,并毁灭了 恩瑟拉斯城Unthalass 的大部。吉尔伽与一尊提亚玛特的化身一并消逝,提亚玛特被严重削弱到了在一段时间内停止向自己的信徒授予法术的程度。然而,她已悄然地秘密回归,并继续在恩瑟、阙森塔、瓦萨Vaasa,以及最近,在 拜龙教Cult of the Dragon 的队伍中煽风点火。
Tchazzar, a red dragon who styled himself “Father of Chessenta” and who had been seeking godhood for centuries, received one fraction of Tiamat's essence. He felt compelled to seek out Gestaniius, a crippled great blue wyrm who also served as a receptacle of Tiamat's divine power, and then slew her and devoured her corpse. Tchazzar felt the divine power surge through him and sprouted a blue head. He then sought out green Skuthosiin, spawn of Chathuulandroth, in his quest to completely absorbed Tiamat's divine essence. After an abrupt transformation that included sprouting a green head, his mortal form was then totally subsumed by Tiamat, and the chromatic dragon was once more manifest in the Realms. After the Godswar, Tiamat battled Gilgeam (who found his power much reduced to that of a demipower) across the Outer Planes and in Unther, destroying much of the city of Unthalass. Gilgeam died, as did one of Tiamat's avatars, and Tiamat was greatly weakened to the point where she ceased granting spells to her worshipers for a time. However, she has quietly and secretly returned and continues to foment trouble in Unther, Chessenta, Vaasa, and, very recently, within the ranks of the Cult of the Dragon.

  目前,除了秘密活动中的提亚玛特唯一幸存外,恩瑟神系已基本作古,现在这片广大地域已被纳入泛费伦神系的势力范围来运作,而她的恩瑟面相脱离该神系,在 酒杯之年Year of the Tankard(1370 DR)年末至 断弦竖琴之年Year of the Unstrung Harp(1371 DR)年中之间的某个时间默认加入泛费伦神系一事,看上去也不可避免。穆尔霍兰德神系最终与其位于外层位面的神性本质重联,而不再于国度维持具现体以及被称为转生体的、凡人性的较弱化身。实际上,穆尔霍兰德神系现在遵循与泛费伦神系相同的规则。然而,所有剩下的穆尔霍兰德神祇都与其原先在世的转生体维持着一种联系,让那位凡人能够轻易地召唤这位神祇的化身到从前转生体所连接者身上。(穆尔霍兰德相对年轻的法老 荷鲁斯特普三世Horustep III 强索荷鲁斯-雷的化身不断神临于他身边的行为,在消耗着荷鲁斯-雷的耐心。)而其余的神王(转生体的凡人后裔)尽管有着远远高于人类平均水平的能力,但只能算雷和他的家人的人类后代。
Currently, the Untheric pantheon is essentially deceased, with only Tiamat remaining, working only covertly, and now operating to such a great extent within the sphere of influence of the Faerûnian pantheon and outside of her Untheric persona that it seems inevitable that she join that pantheon by default by the end of the Year of the Tankard (1370 DR) or the middle of the Year of the Unstrung Harp (1371 DR). The Mulhorandi pantheon has finally been reconnected with its divine essences in the Outer Planes and no longer maintains manifestations in the Realms, nor the mortal, lesser avatars known as incarnations. Effectively the Mulhorandi gods are now governed by the same rules as the Faerûnian pantheon. However, each remaining Mulhorandi deity does maintain a connection with its primary former living incarnation that allows that mortal to easily summon an avatar of the deity to whom the incarnation was formerly connected. (The relatively youthful pharoah of Mulhorand, Horustep III, is taxing the patience of Horus-Re by demanding the constant presence of an avatar of Horus-Re near him.) The remaining god-kings (mortal descendants of incarnations) are simply human descendants of Re and his family, albeit with abilities far above the human average.

  穆尔霍兰德神系的诸神也迅速意识到:艾欧的法令(即他们在国度中神力,与祂们的崇拜者数量以及狂热程度成正比)给他们带来的危险处境。塞尔和参法今日已脱离他们的势力范围,而穆洪正在他们的手中迅速流失,于是将诸多的恩瑟公民转化为他们的信徒一事,对穆尔霍兰德神系突然变得至关重要。穆尔霍兰德的力量将会增长,还是在力量和影响力上保持稳定,甚或是在不断膨胀的泛费伦神系面前枯萎,这个问题在未来许多年内都不会有答案。
The gods of the Mulhorandi pantheon are also rapidly becoming aware of their precarious situation given Ao's decree that their power in the Realms is proportional to the number and fervor of their worshipers. With Thay and Semphar now beyond their sphere of influence and Murghom rapidly slipping from their grasp, it has suddenly become crucial to the Mulhorandi pantheon to convert as many of Unther's citizens as possible to their faith. Whether the Mulhorandi pantheon grows in power, remains stable in power and influence, or withers in the face of the ever-expanding Faerûnian pantheon is a question which wilt not be answered for many years to come.

  这道过去被简称为 召唤侍者summon minion 的法术,仅 穆尔霍兰德神系Mulhorandi pantheon 的祭司们可用。它让施法者得以召唤一只 神侍divine minion(见《怪物纲要Monstrous Compendium》这本资料集后部的章节)。这位仆从在施法者在法术距离内指定的位置出现。神侍忠实地侍奉着这位祭司,执行任何不违背其神祇规定的命令。其中包括在战斗中放弃自己的生命。同一时间只能有一只仆从侍奉着这位祭司。
This spell, previously known simply as summon minion, is available only to priests of the Mulhorandi pantheon. It enables the caster to summon one divine minion (see the Monstrous Compendium entry at the back of this sourcebook). The minion appears where designated by the caster within the spell's range. The divine minion serves the priest faithfully, performing any command that does not violate the dictates of its deity. This includes giving up its life in combat. Only one minion may serve a priest at a time.

  对这道法术而言,材料成分是这位祭司的圣徽和价值至少1000 gp的一大块宝石,宝石必须在施法过程中献祭给这位神祇(并在这一过程中被毁灭)。
The material components for this spell are the priest's holy symbol and a large gem of at least 1,000 gp value, which must be sacrificed to the deity in the casting (and is destroyed in the process).
