Dark Age of Camelot Roundtable 2006 Report

RPG Vault is offering up a two-page report of EA Mythic's recent Dark Age of Camelot Roundtable event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Saturday morning brought a couple of notable speakers. The first was best-selling fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, whose presence had apparently been arranged by his son Bryan, an avid Dark Age of Camelot player. Bob - that's how he refers to himself, not as R.A. - delivered a keynote address that was both entertaining and interesting. He began by talking about how he arrived at the profession that has seen him sell some 15 million copies of his books, many of which are about the adventures of his tremendously popular Forgotten Realms dark elf character, Drizzt Do'Urden. The spark that first pointed him in this direction was provided by a Tolkien boxed set he received for Christmas in the late '70s. When he finally got around to reading some weeks later, it re-awakened the love of reading he had somehow lost.
