Good old fashioned D&D

I really liked and enjoyed this entire series, wish he had written more... Characters develop as the series progresses... I have read the series several times, and listened to it twice now.

A Letter to Paul Kidd

Son! You can't attain greatness like this, son.


You could be as great as other authors like R.A.Salvatore or Ed Greenwood but son, you abandoned your greatest characters like the Justicar, Escalla, Cinder and especially me, ME! Son!? Me? It's just not done, son. 


I thought I trained you better than that, son? I thought you knew what it took but I can see now that I took my hands off the stirrups too soon. I should've paid more attention to what YOU were doing instead of chronicling the adventures of Escalla and Evelyn the Justicar.


I'm disappointed, son! I've talked to several people over the years in many pubs and they all ask me the same thing. They all say Polk, where is the Justicar and Escalla? What happened to the Paul Kidd? Why did he stop chronicling the adventures of the two greatest heroes and lovers of our time?

They could've been great, son! They could've been as great as Drizzt Do'urden, Elminster, Cadderly Bonaduce & Danika, the Dragonlance heroes and so many others.


 Son, I knew when they turned me into a badger that my writing days were behind me. I can't hardly hold a bottle in these clawed paws much less a quill but you, son, You can still take up where I left off. I'll even make you my official apprentice, son, but you gotta redeem yourself to your fans, son. Greatness doesn't come that easy. I thought I taught you better than that, son???


Everybody asks me, they say, "Polk, when is Paul Kidd going to resurrect the greatest characters of Greyhawk? When's he gonna tell us more about the Justicar and Escalla, the faerie?"

I make them buy me a drink to get my answer but I can only make excuses for your dereliction of duty, son. You've let us all down, son. You're one of the most prolific authors of our time and this is how you're going to go out? O, no son, it's just not done this way, son. It's just not done...


(Note from the scribe: Polk the badger continued to rant but I'm ending this letter here because I unfortunately know how long winded he can be. My finger is tired of punching these buttons and I'm signing off. Just know that Polk is passionate about his friends and his fans who miss him, the Justicar, Escalla, Cinder and the entire world that you , Paul Kidd, have created in that marvelous mind of yours. I'm sure that Polk will forgive you eventually but Badgers do hold a mighty grudge when they get angry. I can only imagine that writing more tales of the Justicar and Escalla would mollify his anger and SHUT HIM UP! PLEASE, for the love of the gods, Mr. Kidd, bring these characters back to life once again!)


Sincerely yours, Polk the Teamster Badger, hero & chronicler of the Greyhawk heroes of legend.

An amazing follow up to a classic series G1-2-3 + D1-2-3

I wondered how they would approach the story with the existing characters and I was not disappointed. I remember playing this with my brother and his friends and being frustrated because of the mysterious situations. The story was written well keeping that element alive and throwing the team into a battle with a demi-god.

Just Plain Fun

What a great sequel to the Justicar and Escalla saga. I strongly recommend those three books. I hope there will be more. Does not hurt the performance by Benard gets you deeper into the story

I loved it!!!

Paul Kidd really needs to continue the adventures of this loveable band. He could write and insanely popular series on them alone.

Another return to the D&D classics!

Listened to this on Audible audiobook - another in the series based on classic D&D modules. This story was not as engaging as the previous ones in the series, but it was still enjoyable - recommended if you enjoyed the others in the series!

I love these books!

I love everything about Paul Kidd's Greyhawk trilogy. It's a great story all the way through. This wraps it up for his three books and the ending is full of action and adventure.
