Excerpts: The Art
Ed Greenwood Presents Elminster's Forgotten Realms

To all who peruse this volume, these:

Well met, as always, and welcome to the latest tome from the pen of Ed of the Greenwood that purports to lay bare secrets of the world I dwell in, the place best known to ye as "the Forgotten Realms."

A world so vast and rich that its secrets could fill libraries—to say nothing of the myriad passing details of everyday life, the strivings of folk mighty and simple. Beggars and humble crofters can change the Realms as much as kings do, and its heroes are not always those lauded. Like thy world, the Realms needs splendid deeds from us all for life to hold a goodly measure of pleasures and rewards.

In short, it needs thee to make a difference.

In today's look inside Ed Greenwood Presents: Elminster's Forgotten Realms, we continue with Chapter 6: The Art. "The Faerunian counterbalance to the strong sword has always been magic—wonderful, awesome, terrible magic. Magic gives its users the ability to harness natural forces to do things that frustrate or counter brute force, awakening fear and respect in those who deal in force of arms, and serving as a deterrent that keeps them from lashing out at will and whim."
