Episode #89: Forgotten Realms “Dark Mirror” by R.A. Salvatore Part 1 of 2
Today’s episode starts a two part reading of a short story called “Dark Mirror” by fantasy author R.A. Salvatore from the D and D Forgotten Realms world. It comes from a compilation of short stories in the book Realms of Valor. Listen along as I butcher the names left and right and try to avoid putting in running commentary (everything probably would make more sense if I were more familiar with the world or Dungeons and Dragons). I enjoyed it, though – I feel that since I write in this genre, I should at least try to educate myself a little … This story, which we’ll finish next week, has the popular dark elf character, Drizzt. (I mangle his name, too, and holy smokes, forget about his cat’s name. I tried.)
The first page had this title illustration by Ned Dameron.
To be continued next week!
