As some people might have seen in other threads, I've mentioned that I've just finished the first 3 books on Elminster. I'm just wondering what your thoughts on Elminster (as a character) are, and your pro's and con's are about him.

and sorry if im repeating a past topic

These were my first books that I've read that take place in the FR. So I might be a bit naive as a say this but I'll give my thoughts anyway. Elminster seems to me to be a pretty cool character so far, a bit overpowered at times but nevertheless, an OK character.

There is quite a lot of talk about Elmister in this link. You should take a look at it.

<font color="#ffccff">Mal there are a lot of people here who dislike El, Personally I like the way Greenwood setr him up. But then I also like the whole "Chosen" thing. I don't make the moral or artistic quibles others do when talking about Greenwood, I just decide if I like the book I read [img]smile.gif[/img] I like most of his stuff, wether it was the "Ecology" series of articles in Dragon Magazine or the Forgotten Realms Novels. </font>

Lol, I'll never forget when at the beginning of "The Making of a Mage", El swears to kill all evil wizards blah blah. Then at the end he tells his theif buddy (forget his name), "magic is what i do".

<font color="#ffccff">Soooo Malavon, you never grew up and learned that you were wrong about something as a kid? I can think of many instances where I grew up thinking one thing, only to find out that I was completely wrong.
It is the ability to accept these kinds of facts and to work with reality that allows us to grow as people, I thought that Making of a Mage illustrated life quite well. </font>
