As a huge Drizzt and Jarlaxle fan, I'm liking it so far! I just hope it doesn't feel as rushed as Hero.

I'm so so so soooooo tired of Drizzt and the Dark Elves in general. There was a time when this IP was very dynamic and interesting. That was a very long time ago.

I'm tired of "mustache-twirling evil" Lolthites, but I would love to see more of Eilistraee and Vhaeraun, especially given their return and supposed truce (from someone who respects them, like Elaine or Ed, not from someone who literally sniped many parts of the lore to warp and distort it, like Smedman did). Sadly, it will likely not happen.

Yeah... don't expect that from Salvatore. He has already confessed that he doesn't like Elistrae and Vhaeraun at all. Thus they have never once been mentioned (I don't believe) in 30+ books focused on a dark elf. Drizzt doesn't become 'special' if there are many other drow that forsake Lolth after all.

I know, I wouldn't want to see E&V from RAS either. Elaine is the only writer who wrote a novel where Eilistraee played a major part while staying true to her lore (and the way Eilistraee was there for Liriel in all the key moments, yet subtly and delicately, was beautiful). Sadly, Elaine is out of WotC's loop.

About Drizzt's "specialness", the fact that his perceived uniqueness as a character is based not on a character trait, but on something that is--in all honesty--poor worldbuilding (for many reasons), speaks volumes on how WotC regard him IMHO.

wait... they're putting out novels again??? Granted, not a big drizzt fan, as I'm still not caught up on all of them, but still.... that's possibly a good sign. Is it under WotC and will it be physical?

No, not WotC. It's Harper Collins, and yes, it will be physical.

Ok... so is there any official news on maybe harper Collins will be releasing FR novels now? Did they buy the license? Or did they just buy the license for drizzt?

Just RAS/Drizzt. They explicitly said as much. From what I understand, their lines are character-based, and they expressed interest in getting Drizzt.
