Bruennor the dwarf, along with some others, set out to find his ancestral home that he was driven from over 2 centuries ago. Mix in an assassin going after the halfling, a wizard going after Drizz’t because he thinks Drizz’t has the Crystal Shard and a dragon trying to kill them all, and you get a good rollicking adventure story.

the continuing adventures of Drizz’t. A magical do-hickey from the bowels of hell comes to the surface and takes over a weakminded wizard. He threatens 10 towns and it is up to Drizz’t and a new character named Wulfgar to save the day. Kill dragons and demons, face down hordes and get magical weapons.

Good for what it is, pulp fantasy.
