Happy Holidays Evil Geeks! It was a scorcher of a 4th yesterday but Arthur knows what you all need, a little bit of the calm, cool and collected. Luckily for you, I have all of that, plus a side of scruffy beard. I introduced a new column the other day called “Let Me Put My Suggestions In You” where I not so subtly suggested you all get into the Forgotten Realms universe consisting of the great Drow Elf Drizzt Do’Urden. Today’s Villain Spotlight comes from the same universe, and is literally one of my favorite characters of all time. Ladies and gentlemen, get out your gold and prepare to hand it over, because the assassin Artemis Entreri is coming to town, and he has a life sucking dagger with your name on it.
Good afternoon my glorious adventurers! I know you all get your weekly Villain and Horror fix from your boy Arthur, and I know you all love it, however, today marks the beginning of something brand new for me, for you, and for the Evil Geeks. I come to you humbly and solemnly, and ask you all for the biggest favor I have ever asked of the internet, and people in general….please, please…Let Me Put My Suggestions In You? I came up with this idea for a column after having a nice back and forth with some buddies over the weekend. Between each of us suggesting reading material to each other, I came out of the shadows of a smoke and alcohol tinged den not wonting for new material, and I figured it would be very wrong of me not to share it with you all. For the inaugural entry, I am going to suggest to you all something that I love, and have spent an ungodly amount of time on. That my friends, is the Forgotten Realms universe, and in particular, the Drow Elf Drizzt Do’Urden, and the companions that he meets. I will be focusing mainly on his origin in the Dark Elf Trilogy, because if I gave it to you all today, it would run close to 40 million words…not even joking. Shall we take a look? Of course we shall!
