Lore You Should Know: Thay

Hi, I'm a Mindflayer, but don't let that worry you
Red Wizards appeared in a few of the D&D Next playtest adventures, which definitely made it seem as if they would be important adversaries in the future.

Personally, I love using wizards as villains. Their large arsenal of spells makes them very interesting and versatile as antagonists (both in and out of combat).

Perkins brought up the inter-edition modules, and made a point of how they have been sprinkling them throughout the edition's adventures, and we would likely see more of them soon.

They're supposed to be the villains for the Ghosts of Saltmarsh season DDAL adventures, aren't they? I wonder if there's more to it than that.
That might explain the current LYSK episode's rationale: I feel that the Red Wizards are being set up as ultimate villains for a big AP long term, but I've thought that for a few years since they keep popping up piecemeal in books.
