How I Learned to Love D&D: X is for Q'Xorrlarin

"X" was a bit of a stretch, I freely admit.

While I've read DnD and Forgotten Realms novels over the years, I'd never been a devoted a reader and often avoided them.

Gaming fiction isn't always anywhere close to good writing, but in reality, I've always been a slow reader.

However, I've found that reading on a Kindle or my iPhone has speeded up my rate of reading by a large margin (light has always been an issue with causing headaches while I read).

eBooks lead me to the Sundering series from the Wizards of the Coast that told the transition from DnD 4th Edition to 5th Edition in story form.

I found myself devouring this books and and truly enjoying them.  And since then, I've kept up with the new Forgotten Realms books being published.

It took twenty years, but I'm glad I decided to start reading these stories.

Oh, and Q'Xorrlarin is the name of a drow city in the Underdark.  It used to be the fabled dwarven city of Gauntlgrym.
