I never liked "The Battle of Emridy Meadows" and its French translation "Emridie". Emridy reminds me of the puns that EGG loved to do so much.
em: variant spelling of en-1, en-2 assimilated before b, p (as in emblazon).
Rider. If ridy is cavalry, what is em-cavalry ?
Any idea on the pun ?
It reminds me of an American movie:
Title: La Charge Héroïque
Original Title: She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
I think "The Meadows of the Heroic Charge" would have a better meaning. But I need a shorter name.
I also found on greyhawk wiki this indication:
"The battle itself is portrayed as the introductory cut-scene in The Temple of Elemental Evil, an Atari computer game from 2003. In this version, the cleric Hrudek of Hommlet, along with other members of the good allies, did not complete the cleansing of the lower chambers of the Temple. As a result, years later the Temple would rise again driven by the clerics Lareth of Lolth and Lord Hedrack of Zuggtmoy"
OK for Lareth of Lolth and Hedrak of Zuggtmoy or only in the PC game ?
In the original Temple of Elemental Evil adventure, Hedrack is indeed in charge of the resurgence of the Temple. In that adventure, Hedrack is a 9th-level cleric of Iuz instead of Zuggtmoy.
However, Lareth is another story. In the original adventure, Lareth is only a 5th-level cleric of Lolth, and is the final boss of the Moathouse dungeon, which is the introductory dungeon most PCs face before they head on to the Temple of Elemental Evil. Whle Lareth was considered an up-and-comer or a possible "Chosen One" by some in the Temple of Elemental Evil, he was not a driving force behind the Temple's resurgence.
