Hero Battle: Drizzt
by Chris Sims and Chris Youngs
The name strikes fear into the hearts of villains across the Realms, and admiration in those of nobler pursuits. But what might happen if the heroes of your Forgotten Realms campaign crossed swords with one of Faerûn’s most legendary figures? Given the right motivation, the dark elf could find your adventurers a serious threat, and seek to end that threat. This scenario is intended to let you find out what will happen when your PCs cross swords with world's most famous dark elf. It can be modified in any number of ways, and the article provides several options for doing just that. Unleash Drizzt on your players’ characters, watch the double takes, and enjoy.
Trees have been bent with snow for the past several miles. The rough path is choked with drifts that require constant effort to push through.

Breaking through the tree line, you step into the first true foothills you’ve seen in your quest for the map of Gauntlgrym. An ancient stone tower, built partly into the hill, perches on a ledge ahead, its walls crumbling and its roof long gone. Part of its southern wall has fallen in, and pale blue light glows from within the ground floor. A deathly calm hovers over the winter-shrouded landscape, as if the world was holding its breath.
