Merge proposal[edit]

I have boldly merged a few articles into this one as the subjects are of unclear notability. I propose that Zinzerena and Eilistraee are also merged here, but have not done this myself as the articles are very long. I also note that Lolth could well be merged here, but it's possible that there are sources about the character available. Finally, I note that Vhaeraun (currently a redirect) has some content in the page history which could be fruitfully merged here. Josh Milburn (talk) 16:08, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Got to disagree on Lolth at the very least - major villain, there's got to be some sources out there somewhere. 65.126.152.254 (talk) 16:24, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
I personally don't think that the article about Eilistraee should be merged with the one about the Drow Deities. Eilistraee is a character that has become iconic to the drow in the Realms--even (arguably) as much as Lolth is, when it comes to that setting. She is well known among the fanbase, and popular as well, having been featured in many novels and sourcebooks, being some her followers iconic characters of the Realms (like Liriel Baenre, or Qilué Veladorn), and having brought a deep change in how the drow are perceived (with whole communities/societies of non-evil drow, which are unique to the Forgotten Realms).--Irennan (talk) 14:42, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
All of these have far, far too much trivial detail supported only by TSR/Wizard's product line. Zinzerena should definitely be trimmed and merged (or deleted outright). Eilistraee is so long, and frankly bloated, that merging it would be difficult, but once trimmed down, that would be the right goal to shoot for. The single independent source there is a listicle from Kotaku which describes the character as "nonsense", and which also has WP:CIRC problems, as it cites Wikipedia for other sections. Lolth is less weighed-down, but it's still lacking in sources. I wouldn't be totally surprised of sources exist for Lolth or Eilistraee, but if so, what is everybody waiting for? If they exist and can be found, they should be added, but until then, the articles should be merged. Grayfell (talk) 01:25, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Considering that both Eilistraee and Lolth are WotC's copyrighted IP, it makes sense that the only sources existing for them (and I mean sources that provide info about them, rather than being opinions about them) are WotC/TSR products. Irennan (talk) 16:15, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
