WotC's Chris Perkins on the Alice in Wonderland themes of D&D 5th Edition's Rage of Demon's Out of the Abyss by Green Ronin Publishing.
That's like asking, "How much raw sewage on your pizza is too much?" There is no acceptable amount of Drizzit.How much Drizzit do you think they got on it?
Not sure if I count. I'm not exactly a hater. I'm more of an avoider because Savatore's FR novels have always looked kind of lame. I actually do have a few I've picked up over the years for a quarter or so at yard sales, but have never been able to bring myself to read them.I am wondering for science =) If Salvatore is the worst writer on earth what kind of novels do the Drizzt haters read? I would love to see a bit of their reading list just to see what I must be missing, because I have read all of Salvatore's FR novels and will continue to do so as them come out.
From the Tweet:There's actually a fair amount out there about the Underdark in the Realms, and in particular about Menzoberranzan. Since the adventure description name-checks Gromph Baenre, it's not entirely unreasonable to assume that the PCs might be heading to Menzoberranzan for a visit.
You'll find stuff of higher quality than Salvatore on Zil's and God's lists, for sure...but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the Drizzt books. I mean, just because Citizen Kane exists doesn't mean there's no place for King Kong.That is an awesome list Zil. While I certainly have not gotten to all of those I have read several and enjoyed them to different degrees. I was being a bit of a smart ass with my question mostly because I really do not get all the hate any time FR or Salvatore stuff is posted about. Maybe I just have bad taste. Happy reading what ever you are in to.
The answer is not none, so by default must be too much.I didn't' ask "How much Drizzit is too much?"; I asked "How much Drizzit do you think they got on it?" -- completely different question!
Yes, it's surprisingly good.Has anyone here played "The accursed tower" module written by Salvatore and his gaming group (the Seven Swords) ?
IMHO this is one the best 1st level modules ever written for D&D (great fun both for players and DM) : wilderness encounters, a real (and fun) dungeon, and some interesting twists. (snip)
Well, it's not like we have any other choice.(snip) I think we should wait and see the ideas Perkins and co. have come out.
Indeed. Though it is possible (albeit unlikely) that that might be depicting a scene from before the start of the actual adventure.From the Tweet:
"Out of the Abyss cover - [MENTION=98644]Jacob[/MENTION]sontyler illustrates Demogorgon demolishing Menzoberranzan after a spell goes wrong!"
I think the likelihood that the adventure will at least partly take place in that dark city is quite high.
I don't read much fiction, but in fantasy I'm a big fan of Tolkien, and also enjoy REH's Conan. I want to like Lovecraft, but find him pretty hard going.If Salvatore is the worst writer on earth what kind of novels do the Drizzt haters read?
I'm a fan of both Howard and Tolkien, but I also don't read much fiction and fantasy fiction makes up a small subset of the fiction I do read.I don't read much fiction, but in fantasy I'm a big fan of Tolkien, and also enjoy REH's Conan. (snip)
