alive :) the previous one died in The Time of Troubles and the new one accepted her name.

if you are searching for FR books send me a pm...
I am the whispers in your head
Letting you know you're the next one dead
I am the blade that cuts your skin
That forgives yourself for all your sin
I am the guilt that gnaws your soul
Corrodes the heart to a gaping hole
The hammers pounding all around
So you beat the walls to rid the sound
I am your memories, distorted and loud
That make you scream and shreik aloud
Yes, I make you crazy, it's all my fault
That we're here alone in this cushoined vault

Mystra was killed by Helm during the Time of Troubles when she defied Ao's interdiction to return in god's realm. The Archmage Midnight, who ascended to godhood, took her portofolio and her name.

The Shadow of the Avatar Trilogy by Ed Greenwood and The Avatar Trilogy by Richard Awlinson are the ones which I would recommend.

First Godess of magic: Mystryl

Sacraficed herself to keep the magic weave intact and passed her power to a peasant girl with a strong affinity to magic.

That girl came to be Mystra. She then died during the times of trouble as she tried to get back to her Godly plane, but was stopped by Helm and killed when she refused to turn back. Her power then passed to the mortal Midnight who ascended and changed her name to Mystra (how confusing :blink: ). That is the current Mystra who we know today. The avatar trilogy is good if you are willing to buy online.
Power for the Keep, Power for the Zhentarim!

Defy me and die!

Threads that have been silent for eight years should stay dead.

"The righteous need not cower before the drumbeat of human progress. Though the song of yesterday fades into the challenge of tomorrow, God still watches and judges us. Evil lurks in the datalinks as it lurked in the streets of yesterday, but it was never the streets that were evil." - Sister Miriam Godwinson, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
