Episode #94:  Forgotten Realms “Elminster at the Magefair” by Ed Greenwood Part 2 of 3


Today’s episode is #2 in a three part telling of a fantasy short story by Ed Greenwood about Elminster the mage from the TSR Forgotten Realms anthology Realms of Valor. In this episode, we find out why his going to the mage Con creates such havoc.  My daughter refers to him as a “trouble maker.”  But he’s sufficiently well known, trouble maker or not, to have his own wikipedia entry, where you can learn about him and his creator, Ed Grrenwood:
