Salvatore keynotes Camelot fanfest

Fantasy author R.A. Salvatore signs on to speak at this year's Dark Age of Camelot Roundtable Fan Gathering in Las Vegas.

There are three places where it's acceptable to wear tunics--the annual Dark Age of Camelot Roundtables, Renaissance Faires, and...OK, maybe only two. Tunic wearers at the former this year will be treated to a keynote speech by fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, who penned the Icewind Dale, The Hunter's Blades, and The Dark Elf trilogies.

Salvatore wrote the story for Atari's Demon Stone, and his works have influenced several games, such as Black Isle Studios' Icewind Dale. The author will talk about his experiences as a writer, how he got into the business, and his future projects in books and games.

This year's Dark Age of Camelot Roundtable Fan Gathering, a celebration of the massively multiplayer role-playing PC game Dark Age of Camelot, will take place at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on September 29 and 30. The event marks the first public showing of the upcoming Dark Age of Camelot expansion Labyrinth of the Minotaur.

Gamers who register for the event before August 25 will receive a beta account for Labyrinth of the Minotaur, a free copy of the expansion, and in exclusive in-game item. Hear ye, hear ye, for more information, head over to the convention's official Web site.

he was ordered to kill A character. he chose Chewie. wouldnt have been my personal choice (threepio) but hey... what made me mad was HOW he died. went out like a chump. he deserved a much better death.

One of my fave authors. If I'm not mistaken, he was ordered to kill Chewie in Vector Prime by Lucas himself.

Well Labyrinth of the Minotaur should be good. It sounds good from the info I have heard on it before.

Does he really want to get around fantasy/sci-fi fans in a setting where there's large weapons and animals after what he did to chewbacca? Personally I can't ever meet him, I'd probably choke him.

kinda cool. bob was a lot better before he made the best-seller list. now it seems he just writes a book every year for the big paycheck. the stories and characters have really gone down hill over that last 10 years. it seems his artictic flair has died out. the Demon War/Corona books were really good, but his "Drizzt" books are really shoddy anymore. the last one was the first one i havent bough in hardback since they started releasing them in hardback ( "the legacy" i believe) as my own silent protest. cant wait for the paper back tho. ;)
