Drizzt posts the "I don't know her" GIF in response to Warduke and HankObviously, the money makers like Drizzt, Warduke, or Hank the Ranger, but how deep of a dive should they make?
Those two haven't made anyone significant money in more than 40 years.
I wouldn't include any of your list but Drizzt.Who do you include from Birthright? Where do you stop with Faerun? What about past hotness like Alias and Dragonbait? What about one-shot wonders like Duchess and Candella? Or maybe even Gord the Rogue? Bargle and Aleena should be obvious but would little known but critical to the setting characters like Emperor Thincol Torion of Thyatis have a chance?
I think the lore glossary should be for questions like "who is Bigby and why does he have all these hand spells," "can you tell me more about these demon lord patrons without handing over the Monster Manual," "what is this Blood War the Monster Manual mentions several times?"
I don't see the value of NPC "celebrities" being collected all in one place, unless the gods of Krynn intend to drop a meteorite on all of them.
