“He was the classic misunderstood, unappreciated hero. People judge him unfairly.,” said Salvatore, adding that everyone can relate to that. In Way of the Drow, “Drizzt comes full circle.”

Salvatore also talked about the differences between writing books and videogames. In a book, you're seeing through the characters' eyes. In a videogame, the most important character is the player's. saying that he takes the approach that the story in the videogame is along the side the books without being the story in the book.

Another D&D Movie

Joe Manganiello, director and producer of the official D&D documentary talked a bit about progress on that upcoming movie. But first he said, “Ultimately, it was my love of Dragonlance that opened the door for my involvement with the brand, working tirelessly to develop a live-action version of the Dragonlance novels that have never been far from my thoughts throughout all these years since I first read them.” That confirms comments about a Dragonlance TV project Manganiello mentioned in an interview last month.

Then Manganiello launched into talking about the the official documentary in progress on the 50-year history of D&D with RPG scholar Jon Peterson. He said the documentary includes “elevated conversations with a host of creators, directors, screenwriters, authors, showrunners, rock stars, politicians, talk show hosts, comedians, professional wrestlers, studio executives and visual artists who all came from completely different worlds but transformed their own lives and as a result, the culture we live in.”

“I think it's important to say that we're not just documenting D&D's roller-coaster of a history,” said Manganiello, “but also the incredible impact that it has had on the world and our culture until now.”

More updates on the documentary will come as we get closer to the release date in “the Year of the Dragon, 2024.”

Dragonlance is better in TV, but some one-shot story, because there is more time to tell the story. I wonder if it will be animated or action-live.

If it worked, and I hope it, could we watch a production of Dark Sun in TV?
Joe said live action.

This made me literally spit out my coffee with laughter.

Good grief lol.

If he gets this going, I really pray he makes a Dragonlance TV show, not a movie.
