  • An instant classic, this fantasy book steeped in lore is sure to get any Realms fan in the mood. I highly suggest you get out an old wooden pipe, don your musty wizard robes, and pull up a guady, over-sized plush armchair next to the fire, no that’s too close… OK, there you are.  Now, have a seat, light your pipe and crack open this old… er new tome.  Trust me, you’ll be lost within her pages fast enough. Yes, it’s that good.  A book published by WotC that caused my jaw to drop due to the fact that they finally let Ed Greenwood have his way, and run amuck through his world.  Losing the constraining statistics of various systems has truly set this […]

  • You have finally arrived at the City of Silverymoon in the Northern region of Faerun.  The air is cold here and the environs intimidating and far from tame.  Surprisingly amidst the cold wilderness awaits a city full of riches.  The word “riches” is defined far differently in Silverymoon than the rest of the Realms; Wealth here refers to the retention of great knowledge and artistic strides.  An organic city with smooth shapes and curves bend and twist with nature so that trees, shrubs, and flowers grow as one with the magically shaped architecture. Strolling through the magical city is a welcome course after such a long time on the snow covered roads of the North.  The temperature has been magically altered […]

  • Chapter 11 “Let us see if we art truly underground. Mine eyes have been deceived before.” Queless muttered as he drew his Drow longsword, knowing that it would glow magically in the darkness. When the sword was pulled from his sheath he noticed that it did not glow. “Curious.” Queless pulled the Velvet Champion’s whistle out of his pocket, put it to his mouth and blew. It was silent for a moment and then a strange light could be seen moving ever closer from the deeper depths of the cavern. As Queless watched the light grew brighter and brighter until it was upon him! A giant glowing orb with a huge eye in the center and a gaping maw full […]

Perhaps we can gain their assistance. I will first go visit the lovely Loli Savage and her brother Karis. Afterwards I’ll try to find master Greenhill. I’ll return after a few other stops.” “Good luck my friend, please be careful. I will pray to Moradin Soulforger for your safe passage in the city.

He immediately rose up and out of the water, standing just on the very surface. Rings pulsated out as he took each step, then he heard the strange noise again and began to run as fast as he could in the opposite direction. His feet splashed on the top of the water as if there were only a wet floor as opposed to a foot or more of water! He simply sought to escape entrapment in the sludgy sewers of Waterdeep.

Large groups of 6 or more guards on horseback rode past with torches often. Surprisingly not one of them stopped to harass Queless as he was used to. Being a Drow could be tough at times. Luckily if one picked an above world city to live in, Waterdeep was it. Even goblins or kobolds with […]
