Elminster: The Making of a Mage
by Ed Greenwood
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786902035, Mass Market Paperback)
In ancient days, sorcerers sought to learn the One True Spell that would give them power over all the world and understanding of all magic. . . .
The One True Spell was a woman, and her name was Mystra -- and her kisses were wonderful.
Priest Havilon Tharnstar
Tales Told to a Blind Wizard
It is the time before Myth Drannor, when the Heartlands are home to barbarians, and wicked dragons rule the skies. In these ancient days, Elminster is but a shepherd boy, dreaming of adventure and heroics. When a dragon-riding magelord sweeps down upon him, though, the boy is thrust into a world of harsh realities, corrupt rulers, and evil sorcerers.
With patience and grit, Elminster sets about to change all that. The result of his labors is a world reborn and a mage made.
