Woody & Ted: "Meeting Salvatore I"
Posted: Friday September 29th, 2006 by

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Mythic is bringing me out for their annual Las Vegas Roundtable. So, I'm off for a weekend of talking to DAoC fans and digging up more info on Warhammer Online.

Now, as it happens, this year's keynote speaker is R.A. Salvatore. I've met and spoken with "Bob" a few times now, but I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for Ted to meet him. But, meeting Salvatore wouldn't really be enough for Ted. So I had to ask myself, how exactly would Ted respond? And, given his love of getting dressed up... the answer was somewhat obvious: He'd dress up like Drizzt.

Now, I know if I were a relatively famous person and someone came running up to me dressed as one of my characters, I'd probably poop myself and flee. But, this is the man who spawned a hundred thousand name-ripper-off-ers. He must have seen someone like Ted before, right?

And that's why there are times (like this) that I wish Ted was real... just so I could get an answer without having to mull it over myself. Hell, I'd ask Salvatore for an answer based on Ted's "character". But, I'd lay down 10 to 1 odds (it is Vegas after all) that he's seen GU strips before but hasn't read more than 3 of them. So, he has no idea who Ted is.
[Actually I know he's read atleast two.]


Now, I know some of you may not like Salvatore's books. But please, don't bash them here. He's a funny guy, a gamer, and an all around "good person". To use his own words:

Hope you like the book....if not, don't tell me! Lol.
