Thematically, it focused on a mix of druidic, Norse mythology and King Arthur type fantasy. Douglas had a fleshed out world, playable module with a ton of adventure ideas and two half written books, ready to go.

Reviews for the book Darkwalker on moonshae

His module was well received and reviewed so his half written books got the green light. The Forgotten Realms novel line was a reality.

From sparse info on the internet it looks like sales for Darkwalker on Moonshae were a huge success. The book I downloadd with the original cover was 12th printing and his books were re-released a few years ago. If you read this in a bubble, with passing or no interest in DnD or rpg's and you hated it, I don't fault you. This book was largely written to flesh out his creation of the isles, explore areas and show the possible campaigns one could have by playing his module.

There's lots of adventure hooks here for people who did play at the time.

There's castles, fortresses, all different kinds of terrain options and magic weapons. It practically begs you to download the adventure.

The major story hook of this novel that sets it apart from other novels of its type released around the same time is its main character, who at this point requires no introduction. Start-of-act journal-like essays added to later editions of the Icewind Dale Trilogy, I think provide additional insight into Drizzt's character and outlook and speak directly on the story's themes without intruding on the plot or bogging the overall product down with preachiness.

The pacing of Drizzt's portrayal in this book, which I can't help but feel tapered off somewhere after the later novel Starless Night, is very well-done here, and in re-experiencing this book again after so many years, I find myself remembering quite fondly why I loved the character so much in his heyday.

The rest of the cast is likewise entertaining, although coming at this book after the rest of the series is a little awkward in several aspects.

For one thing, the first three books listed under the Legend of Drizzt title, the Dark Elf Trilogy, are Drizzt's origin story but were written later, so reading the books in chronological order does for the writing what watching the Hobbit Trilogy before the Lord of the Rings movies does for the action and special effects: There are only two parts of his story in particular that feel unwieldy to me, however.

The first is the character of Catti-brie, who in later books is written as both a more prominent character and speaking with a dwarf-like accent which she inexplicably does not have in her appearances here despite having it at the end of Sojourn, Book III in the Drizzt line, and in Streams of Silver, immediately after this one.

She does absolutely nothing worthwhile but the narrative insists that she is strong, fiery, and independent, which kind of feels like the book wanted to make her the token female warrior but gave up halfway through and settled for having her say some mildly interesting lines of dialogue here and there while taking great pains to describe how much her eyes sparkled.

Drizzt mentally refers to her as his most trusted friend and companion, but we are given no context for this connection within the book itself, resulting in Catti-brie's inclusion here feeling forced and awkward.

This is doubly stark if the reader happens to be a long-time fan of Drizzt and his companions prior to reading The Crystal Shard, as Catti-brie is one of the most interesting and frequently-utilized members of the "Company of the Hall" in later stories. Seeing her so minimalized is, in retrospect, kind of insulting to the character.

The second unwieldy portion of the book is the dragon that happens to be involved in the barbarian Wulfgar's portion of the plot. While the scenes involving this dragon are well-done on many levels, this particular part of the story feels awkwardly tangential when it occurs, because all of the other plot threads involved in The Crystal Shard--from the barbarians to the political conflicts of Ten-Towns to the dwarves to the demon who ends up being summoned by coincidence to the world during the story's events, right up to the primary conflict with Akar Kessel's army--the dragon is the only part of the story that receives no build-up and only a very small token bit of foreshadowing before it happens.

When it does happen, it happens with style, but it feels almost like a one-chapter sidestory than a real part of the novel.

The inclusion of a dragon feels forced, as if it were an item on the checklist of Fantasy Adventure Staples the author needed to include, and compared to other dragon encounters in fantasy fiction, such as Tolkien's Smaug, or even Shimmergloom the shadow dragon in the book immediately after this one, this one falls flat and leaves a lasting legacy not so much in the imagination of the reader as on Drizzt Do'Urden's own weapon belt.

As Niles' partly written novel was traditional Celtic fantasy, it was a pretty good fit for the Realms.

Darkwalker On Moonshae

The novel, Darkwalker on Moonshae , was then released as one of the first two Forgotten Realms products in May — alongside the compiled I Desert of Desolation adventure; it was so early in the release of the Realms that the novel didn't even carry the Forgotten Realms logo on the cover for its first printing!

But the novel was just the first step … Continuing the "FR" Sourcebooks.

Since the Moonshae Isles was one of the earliest areas revealed in the Realms, it made sense to detail that region in an "FR" sourcebook too. Within the Isles, the sourcebook covers topics like geography, economy, and religion. It also details several specific regions.

The Known World "GAZ" sourcebooks , which preceded the "FR" series by several months, probably suggested some of these topics. Most of the material is "fluff", with very occasional game crunch. Expanding the Realms.The author refers to Guenhwyvar as a male when he indicates a gender at all, often just calling it 'the panther' or 'the cat'.

For example, one guy gets turned into a fine mist.

UK Origins. Darkwalker on Moonshae, by Douglas Niles, is the first book in the Moonshae trilogy. The rest of the cast is likewise entertaining, although coming at this book after the rest of the series is a little awkward in several aspects. Each title will feature all new cover art and new introductions written by those who have become familiar with Salvatore and Drizzt over the years.
