    Nah, NWN is good, but I never had as much fun with it as I did with BG.

    I was always pissed that NWN didn't have a Dark Elf in the character selection!

    So I just made my elf black with white hair but it wasn't the same.

    God, that cliche.

    The number of emo drow in games is astounding. I wonder if there's any evil drow left, with all the Drizzt clones out there. :p

    To be fair, though, msot are now playing night elves in WoW.

    I usually play a Paladin. I like the class, it's tough and restrictive, and being an undead hunter kit was helpful for avoiding level drain in BG2.

    In serious D&D campaigns, I always use elf wizard. It's classic and tad unoriginal, but I love elfs. :D

    In some adventures I use silly characters, for fun. My favourite is halfling barbarian. :p

    For true fun, play a Half-Elf from Silvermoon. Emo!

    It surprises some people when I tell them I've never played D&D. When I first got into RPGs my friends were done with it many moons ago and we played Marvel and DC and Traveler 2300.

    But I always loved the D&D game material, food for the imagination it is.

    I suppose if I actually sat down with people right now I'd go for a Soulknife character. From what I can see it is a tad underpowered, but I like the idea of summoning a weapon at will. Been captured? Captors took your stuff? The Soul Knife is always armed. And in a way it's like having a Jedi lighting up a lightsaber that he or she does't need a piece of technology to use.

    Evereska has a psionics school...

    Despite my venemous prejudices for anything elfy, I'm due to read my first Forgotten Realms story, Homeland, hopefully this weekend. A night elf was the best I could manage, and it wouldn't hurt to have some understanding how light reading Realms books are. And after a 4 week delivery became 9 it better impress me!

    Ordered the omnibus trilogy rather than separate box for bigger font. I've perused some Realms book on the shelves; apparently, almost all have tiny font. Who do they think they are?

    Ex

    Why, oh, why, do you ask for advice you insist on ignoring?

    Homeland/Exile/Sojourn should be read AFTER the Icewind Dale Trilogy!!!

    Salvatore wrote them to explain how Drizzt got where he was, and how he got Guen.

    Icewind Dale introduces his friends, his swords (Icingdeath and Twinkle), and hints at his past.

    The Dark Elf Trilogy gives him a backstory.

    If needs be, I can track you down and give it to you this weekend! Just read it first!

    I want to read about drow society and this Underdark that I've just played through. What I read about Icewind Dale doesn't interest me at the moment. All the more reason to read a prequel backstory, no? I've read surface books, but I can't say I've read an underground story like Exile.

    I was told it the other way around and I prefer to have read the back story and then another adventure, and both trilogies are wonderful IMO

    I read Homeland in a day. I have to say I was impressed. Nothing spectacular but I really enjoyed it. Spotted some of the Shadows of Amn game items here and there was fun. I still despise anything elfy, but dark elfs were refreshing to read, so much torture, all that mayhem.

    Only Mara in the pizza was Drizzt's first feel of the upworld. It was so breezy, when it should have been a serious, emotional moment. As a matter of fact, the game was almost right out of these books, in events and some details. It was fun. The Dark Elf Trilogy omnibus had a brief foreword rom Greenwood and Bob himself, explaining how Drizzt came to birth.

    I've just got Feast for Crows for a special $8, but I've waited 2yrs I can wait a bit longer. I think I'll actually read Exile next. I want to see how mindflayers are done!

    I'm reading Icewind Dale right now (I'm going based on the Legend of Drizzt order.) It flowed perfectly fine for me reading Dark Elf trilogy first.

    Mind flayers are annoying. Just played an epic game of D&D Minis (2 v 2; LG & CG vs LE & CE) against Shuluth, who's a Rare mind-flayer. Brain sucking is never a cool thing.

    Lucky, Epic Drizzt (217pts! 3x Attacks!) was on hand with Guenhwyvar...

    :D

    Anyone know, by the way, what a Wonderous Onxy Figure is worth? [face_mischief]

    Drizzt is a lucky lad, let's say that much.

    I mean, not just because of Gwen, but Icingdeath and Twinkle are plain nasty.

    What do Forgotten Realmsers think of the Drizzt TPB comics?

    Looking for art, dialogue and some preview samples. Worth getting?

    FR comics exist? Wow.

    I'm just reading Sea of Swords, great read. Stories with good ol' Drizzt never get boring.
