I think I may have asked this a long time ago, but unfortunately I can't remember what page of this thread it's on :)

Can anyone tell me if the Rogues series of books is any good (and are they meant to be read in order or standalone titles?)

Thanks

That scroll was only a couple of weeks ago.

The main opinion was The Black Bouquet is one of the best books

Each book in each class series (Fighters, Rogues, etc) is a stand-alone novel.

Great thanks for that, will order a few of them (along with the WotSQ gift sets). Also I'm thinking of picking up some more books from Amazon, taking advantage of free postage, though can't seem to get a copy of Masquerades or Tymoras Luck.

I got a little bored with the Return of the Archwizards trilogy and only read the first book. Will I need to finish it before I read Shadowbred or are the two books not related?

Cheers

Dear fellow scibes!

I would like to hear your commands, any commands, on 'the Parched sea' (The Harpers book 1). Is it worth buying?

Same goes for 'Realms of Magic' btw!

I've not read the Parched Sea in ages, but I really enjoyed it, back in the day.

Realms of Magic has some great short stories, including, IIRC, one with Tertius Wands and Ampi (minor characters from the comics).

If you can still find it around, get it. Additionally, it is a fairly good novel. the first Ruha (sp?) book.

I enjoyed Parched Sea, mostly because it took place in Anauroch and thus provided us with a story about a region we hadn't head much about at the time.

A definite favorite for me -- especially because of the Szass Tam story... Red Ambition.

Thanks for your quick answers! I may call 'the parched sea' my own now! :)

As for 'Realms of Magic' - we will see in a little while! *crossing my fingers*

My question is, what have I missed?

Probably not much, but I want to be sure. The last two FR novels I read were Blackstaff and Darkvision. Which were both very good. What novels have come out since then?

And if the PCs DO win their ways through all the liches to Larloch, “he” will almost certainly be just another lich (loaded with explosive spells) set up as a decoy, with dozens of hidden liches waiting to pounce on any surviving PCs who ‘celebrate’ after they take Larloch down. As the REAL Larloch watches (magical scrying) from afar. Myself, as DM, I’d be wondering: “Such a glorious game, so many opportunities laid out before your PCs to devote your time to, and THIS fixation is the best you can come up with? Are you SURE you’re adventurers?” -Ed Greenwood

And to the first page of the book itself.

Mazrim_Taim, here are Realms products listed in publication order. Four Realms novels have been published since, including the opposite-of-not-much Swords of Eveningstar.

Indeed. That's why it's on my list of useful links.

Any chance you could send that "list of useful links" my way, you furry hamster?

I'd like to compare it with the Sage's.

What do you want to compare?

We both know mine is longer than Wooly's.

Now that I am about halfway through my current book, I am looking for my next read. One option I was pondering was the Watercourse Trilogy. Any advise / recommendations?

Also, I was intrigued by the Shadow Stone (as I have vague recalls of people recommending it... can't recall where I might have seen that, or if I'm suffering from delusions).

Finally, the Nobles book, Escape from Undermountain. Any advise in regard? Also, does one need to read this as a series, or are they stand-alone?


Thanks in advance for any advise you may be able to impart.

I never finished reading the Nobles books... But I'm pretty certain that all of them are stand-alone novels.

I've not read Escape From Undermountain in many years. I did not care for it, though, because it seemed to me that it was not true to the known lore about Undermountain.

Of course, we all have differing opinions, so you may well enjoy it.
