Anyone else notice that they used time travel as a way to have a none Archfey Tasha for this?

Btw this is the first time to my knowledge that Tasha herself has appeared in the Forgotten Realms.

Also they mention some Gods die in this adventure, watch Mystra dies, AGAIN, but Tasha is there to merge with a dying Mystra to become the new Goddess of Magic.
Unlikely. Also Tasha is not in the Forgotten Realms, the 3 Wizards are meeting in Sigil.



Szazz Tam for FR? Or even the Dead Three as I mentioned in my last post?

Iuz would make a lot of sense for Greyhawk, given his connections to two of our wizards here, and he was mentioned in the Saltmarsh adventure. Tasha/Iggwilv might have entrusted part of the Rod to her son, maybe? If not him, maybe Rory?
Yeah, some smaller scale (compared to Vecna) Big Bad for each of the 7 Settings seems likely, with Lord Soth and Count Strahd being the easy given pickings.

The Dead Three would make sense for the FR, as they didn't really see any resolution in Baldur's Gate.

Iuz for Greyhawk would make a lot of sense.

Llolth is the one major Demon Prince who hasn't really had a big appearance in 5E, would she maybe make sense for Planescape?

Leaving Spelljammer and Eberron as question marks. Eberron is loaded with potential antagonists, and Ibwould suppose Spelljammer will tie in LoX in some way...
