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.

In this episode Richard Baker, Forgotten Realms author, returned to our studio to read a select passage from his most recent novel, Corsair. Second book in the Blades of the Moonsea series, Corsair continues the exploits of Geran Hulmaster several years after the events of Swordmage.

Kamoth Kastelmar, Lord of the Black Moon

He was a sadistic young lord who charmed his way into the marrying the Harmach of Hulburg’s sister before he was exiled for conspiring against his new brother-and-law.

Now he is Captain of the Kraken Queen, High Captain of the Black Moon Corsairs—a ruthless pirate fleet that scours the Moonsea, raping, pillaging, and burning wherever they go.

He was willing to let bygones be bygones, but when the Harmach of Hulburg arms a warship to thwart his piracy, he starts taking their actions against him personally.

It’s time to teach the harmach a lesson in respect.

It’s time to raze Hulburg.

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.
