Ed Greenwood: Elminster Must Die!

Elminster Must Die! is the debut 4th Edition appearance of one of the Forgotten Realms world’s most iconic characters, written by the creator of the original Forgotten Realms campaign setting. An instant classic, and a must-read for every Realms fan.

When the goddess of magic was murdered, Elminster’s world shattered. Once the most powerful wizard in the world, immortal, beloved of the goddess of magic, and the bane of villainy, he is now a tired old man. He is powerful but mortal, and with all the enemies a man who makes a habit of saving the world tends to accumulate.

To make matters worse, Elminster has needs—feeding powerful magic items to the Simbul, his lover, is the only thing that keeps her sane—but their increasingly risky collection leads his enemies right to him.

Erin Evans: The God Catcher

A fallen statue, caught in the cobbles of the city it tried first to save, and then to destroy.

Hollowed out, built over, and rented in pieces as apartments.

Dreams heavy with prophecy emanate from

The God Catcher

Tennora wants to master wizardry at the House of Wonder and forge a life in the bustling City of Waterdeep. Her plans are unfolding admirably until a madwoman arrives at the God Catcher, where Tennora has rented a room, and screams for the landlady -- soon demonstrating she's more than a crazy woman with strong lungs. Quite a lot more.

The God Catcher is a wild adventure that rages from end to end of Waterdeep; it features vivid characters who have fascinating lives. I loved it, and you will too!

Bruce Cordell: City of Torment

You didn’t get away. It caught you.

Anusha took the warlock’s sleeping potion to stay in her dreamform while she battled the great kraken.

What do you mean?

That potion that prevented her from waking in time to escape the kraken’s trap.

That godsdamned relic sucked your mind into its heart.

He’d do anything to free her—even go to the City of Torment itself.

Don’t worry. I will go to Xxiphu. I will free you.

He just has to figure out how.

James Wyatt: Dragon War

"Whatever you deserve, freedom is what you have been given. Use your freedom as if you deserve it."

Eberron’s fragile peace is crumbling. Armies gather, and for the first time in generations, dragons rise to war. Prophecies are fulfilled. And the one man at the center of it all, the prophesied Storm Dragon, lies helpless, his powers stripped away, his mind teetering on the edge of madness.

Even as a band of desperate heroes try to restore the Storm Dragon and prevent another world war, darker forces are at work. Some lust for power and are willing to do anything to seize it, even rouse Eberron’s most fearsome powers for a fullscale...

Dragon War.
