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.
