Audible has brought celebrities together to read passages from R.A. Salvatore’s The Legend of Drizzt: The Collected Stories – a series of 12 tales set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons – for the 40th anniversary of the fantasy game. Audible has released the project today and Tom is a part of it – listeners will have free access to it for 40 days.
Actor Tom Felton (Harry Potter) performs the origin story of Guenhwyvar, Drizzt’s black panther companion and one of the more mysterious aspects of the Forgotten Realms.
Guenhwyvar is one of 12 short stories featured in The Legend of Drizzt anthology. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Dungeon & Dragons this year, these individual stories – as well as the complete collection – will be available for free at Audible for forty (40) days starting August 12th 2014 12:01am ET through September 20th 2014 11:59PM ET.
The Legend of Drizzt: The Collected Stories expands upon the epic legend of the dark elf with 12 tales performed by the all-star cast of Felicia Day, Dan Harmon, Greg Grunberg, Tom Felton, Danny Pudi, Sean Astin, Melissa Rauch, Ice-T, Wil Wheaton, Al Yankovic, Michael Chiklis, and David Duchovny!
For years, the Legend of Drizzt has included short stories published in Forgotten Realms anthologies and Dragon magazine. Available here for the first time in audio are all the classic stories by the New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore!
From the startling origin of Drizzt’s panther companion, to the tale of Jarlaxle and Entreri’s first encounter with the dragon sisters, the tales in The Collected Stories enrich this vividly-imagined series by building the world around Drizzt through exploring the backstories of side characters and magical locations.
