Episode #95:  Forgotten Realms “Elminster at the Magefair” by Ed Greenwood Part 3 of 3


Today’s episode is #3 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, Elminster meets his match and is helped by a friend.  There’s also an afterword that talks about how Ed Greenwood and many others created the Forgotten Realms universe – essentially an open source multisite project spanning decades.

Found this funny picture with a quote from our man of the hour.  I guess when you have lived 5 centuries, it’s easy to be zen about such things.
