A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity: It is time to put a stop to the marauders! For years the coastal towns have been burned and looted by the forces of evil. You and your fellow adventurers have been recruited to root out and destroy the source of these raids—as hundreds of good men and women have been taken by the slavers and have never been seen or heard from again!
A2: Secret of the Slavers Stockade: The battle against the slavers continues! You and your fellow adventurers have defeated the slavers of Highport, but you have learned of the existence of another slaver stronghold, and you have decided to continue the attack. But beware! Only the most fearless of adventurers could challenge the slavers on their own ground, and live to tell of it!
A3: Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords: Into the Drachengrab Mountains! Hot on the trail of the marauding slavers, you and your fellow adventurers plunge deep into hostile Hills. Spurred on by your past success, you now seek the heart of the slaver conspiracy. But hurry! You must move quickly before the slavers recover from your previous forays and attack!
A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords: Trapped in the dungeons of the Slave Lords! The hardy adventurers must find a way out, with only their wits and courage to help them. But can they do it before everything is destroyed by the dreaded Earth Dragon?
R.A. Salvatore’s The Companions, the first book in The Sundering collection from publisher Wizards of the Coast, begins to lay the groundwork for putting the mysteries surrounding some of the Forgotten Realms most epic events to rest.
This latest installment in New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore’s beloved fantasy saga, The Companions, moves Salvatore’s signature hero Drizzt into a new era of the Forgotten Realms. As Drizzt’s fate hangs in the balance, he reflects on the lives of the trusted allies who stood by his side throughout his early life — the friends now known as the Companions of the Hall. Meanwhile, the first stirrings of The Sundering begin.
Beginning this summer, Dungeons & Dragons fans will have the opportunity to participate in The Sundering, a major “Realms Shaking Event” that will forever change the fate of the beloved Forgotten Realms setting. To kick off this exciting cross-platform epic, six notable authors – R.A. Salvatore (The Companions), Paul Kemp (The Godborn), Erin Evans (The Adversary), Troy Denning (The Sentinel), Richard Lee Byers (The Reaver), and Ed Greenwood (The Herald) – have drawn on the legacy of the Realms to create an overarching theme vast enough to inform adventurers during D&D Encounters in-store events occurring at hobby shops around the world. In the end, the books, along with input from fans, will go on to influence future Dungeons & Dragons games and products set in the Forgotten Realms.
