offical DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fiction disscousions & comments :

I am getting back into d&d fiction been gone for ten years I've noticed on my nook that the forgotten realms are on there an I love the drow race . And I've noticed that dragonlance is also appearing on the nook and I love the
kender and elves of kryn . And I was wondering if there are any other fans out there.

Re: offical DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fiction disscousions & comments :

Just because there weren't any replies doesn't mean no one's interested. I can only speak for myself, but I've been working on a D & D story for some time now (the operative word being "working" ) I actually posted it in the fiction section once, but it's been my experience that non Trek stories don't get as much attention in the forum. I rarely go in, so I could be mistaken on that, but it just seems like there are very few. * shrugs *

But if you'd be interested in what little I've written, drop me a PM. I keep meaning to get back to it, but RL tends to get in my way.

Haven't ever read an Eberron book. They any good?

I tend to think most of the Forgotten Realms (particularly the Drizzt books) are overrated. Big fan of the Weis/Hickman Dragonlance books and a few of the Ravenloft books. Dark Sun not so much...

Re: offical DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fiction disscousions & comments :

my favorite series are the dragonlance novels . I have'nt tried ebberon they tend to mix magic and steam tech not my thing . If I was going to do magic and tech which I have done I would still be reading shadowrun . Now the darksun books are fun read. espescially if you psyonics.

I love the world of Dark Sun and I have some of my fondest 2nd edition memories playing in the arena, but the fiction never really grabbed me. I loved the Eberron setting so I may have to check them out anyway.

The Shadowrun books are a bit of a mixed bag too, but not too bad when Stackpole writes them.

stackpole is one of my favorite writters especially when he did shadowrun and battletech + star wars x wing novels were some of my favorites . I just wished
he would've done some dragonlance or forgotten realms . also I like douglas niles.

Dragonlance really didn't need much of a story beyond what Weis and Hickman wrote really. No one else has ever captured any of their quality except for maybe Knaack's Legend of Huma.

Stackpole's Battletech was good too.

Re: offical DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fiction disscousions & comments :

^ When you say Eberron, do you mean novels or the general books associated with the campaign setting? I find the setting rather interesting, but I generally never have time to read the novels. It's a different take from how Forgotten Realms is set up.

I personally love the setting and campaign books, just haven't read any of the novels.

I really liked Temple of elemental evil. The Moonshae books, Curse of the Azure bonds. Any Dragonlance written by Weis and Hickman. The Drizzt books and The cleric quintet.

Gord. Despite the fact that it stopped being "official Dungeons & Dragons fiction" after the second book.
