Haven't read it yet, but I was told that the story is Realms related. Can anyone confirm this?

"And All the Sinners, Saints
Paul S. Kemp
short story from Dragon #297
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=books/fr/allsinnersaints


Unfortunately Wizards has gone and pulled the rug from under us, and I suspect themselves too, since very few of the linked articles on their novel product pages seem to work anymore (and for quite some time too, at least the last 4 months that I'm aware of). However, it also seems that they have at least mirrored most of those articles (ironically on their Mirrorstone site), even if getting to them is a little obscure. I'll use the above non-working link as an example:
The broken link
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=books/fr/allsinnersaints
should be replaced with
http://ww2.wizards.com/books/mirrorstone/Article.aspx?doc=fr_allsinnersaints

I suspect this will work for any of the other broken links to for instance Ed Greenwood's Spin a Yarns, etc.

Simply replace
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=books/fr/
with
http://ww2.wizards.com/books/mirrorstone/Article.aspx?doc=fr_
followed by the article name.

I hope this helps.

The Sellplague began, for all intents and purposes, in the dominions of the Corporation. Greed murdered Good Design, unraveling common sense in the cosmos and destroying her dominion. At the same time, Sales Fears and Warcraft Envy happened into alignment. This cataclysmic coincidence led to upheaval, shaking apart the primeval order, opening up holes in wallets, and reshaping everything...

I haven't updated this thread because Alaundo is hosting this list in Word format here on the site. I am updating it regularly, and it should be up to date as of the next site update. I'd like to keep this thread going with summaries of the stories and novels that have yet to be covered, and posts of any new material I may miss.

It was only published in The Highwayman and I doubt it will make it into a Realms book. Perhaps if they decide to go with a Best of Salvatore collection...

REALMS OF DRAGONS II

“Woman Who Drew Dragons, The”
Jones, Rosemary
Year: 1373 DR -- It's actually 1362 DR and the reason for the change was "that would be cooler" from a WOTC editor :)
Location: Halfknot (a very small town halfway between bigger cities in Sembia). Otherwise known as very first time that this author was allowed into the Realms so she wasn't going to mess up the sandbox by destroying someone else's town.
Characters: Malaeragoth is an Ed Greenwood sapphire dragon. The character description used to be up on the WOTC site. And, while I had an idea for the plot before I read it, I realized Malaeragoth was the only dragon who would really, really work well in this situation.

The rest of the characters are my own. Petra, the painter, is my homage to all the great dragon artists who make the Realms books so gorgeous. Mr. and Mrs. Varney just appeared as the point-of-view characters for the story (sort of like the bugbears who infested CRYPT OF THE MOANING DIAMOND - I don't know where these characters come from but they just show up and stick their noses into my plots). Badger Bates, Nix, and Silver are the adventurers who get more than they thought they would when they start making bets about dragons.

And the WOTC description of this plot is:
"Even the painting of a dragon can be dangerous if you look it in the eye."

My description when I pitched the story was:
"Never bet with an artist -- and never refuse to pay!"

Thanks Rosemary, I enjoyed this tale tremendously, but was never able to write a synopsis that I felt good about.

So glad you enjoyed it! It was great fun to see this one come out as it was my first sale to WOTC.
