Don't just read about D&D's latest news and announcements -- listen to them as well! And where better to find inside information than from the very halls of Wizards of the Coast. Presenting Episode 27: R.A. and Geno Salvatore.

In this episode, we sit down with authors R.A. and Geno Salvatore, to find out more regarding their forthcoming books: The Pirate King and The Stowaway.

The Pirate King

Luskan in flames!

The Arcane Brotherhood, a cabal of powerful wizards with a dangerous secret agenda, have infiltrated the Hosttower of the Arcane, seizing control of the port city of Luskan. No one has been able to stand against them, and their iron hand is beginning to squeeze the life blood from the city. Captain Deudermont doesn't like what he sees, and is determined to save Luskan from the Arcane Brotherhood -- and itself. But he may not be able to do both.

The Stowaway

Nearly two decades ago, R.A. Salvatore introduced the world to Drizzt D'Urden in a series that has since become a fantasy classic and a consistent presence on best seller lists. Now, for the first time, Salvatore partners with his son Geno to craft a brand-new story just for young readers, featuring a cameo of the most beloved fantasy character of all time. For young readers seeking the next great fantasy saga or for long-time fans who can't miss any installment in the Drizzt saga, this book delivers all the action, intrigue, and magic you've come to expect from the Salvatore name.

About the Hosts

Mike Mearls is the dark hope of chaotic evil: young, handsome, well endowed in abilities and aptitudes, thoroughly wicked, depraved, and capricious. Whomever harms Mearls had better not brag of it in the presence of one who will inform the Demoness Lolth!

Evil to the core, Mearls is cunning, and if the situation appears in doubt, he will use bribery and honeyed words to sway the balance in his favor. He is not at all adverse to gaining new recruits of any sort, and will gladly accept adventurers into the ranks, but he will test and try them continually. Those who arouse suspicion will be quietly murdered in their sleep; those with too much promise will be likewise dealt with, for Mearls wants no potential usurpers or threats to his domination.

David Noonan is a designer/developer for Wizards of the Coast. His credits include co-designing Dungeon Master's Guide II, Heroes of Battle, and numerous products for the Eberron campaign setting. He lives in Washington state with his wife, son, and daughter.
