VGTC Wheloon.jpg
Wheloon was a small city in the kingdom of Cormyr, lying where the Way of the Manticore crossed the Wyvernflow River. A town sprawling across both sides of the river, it was sometimes nicknamed the "Jade Towers" for its ubiquitous green slate roof tiles. Wheloon grew up around the Wyvern Ferry crossing, linking Cormyr's two busiest trade routes, and becoming one of the kingdom's most prosperous and industrious towns. It was famous for its talented craftsfolk and entrepreneurs, who built boats and wagons, fashioned baskets, grew fruit and other foodstuffs, bred pets, and created cheap transport companies.

Though it once was the site of a battle with the Witch Lords and was one of those places conquered by the Lost King Gondegal, Wheloon oft-enjoyed only a small role in Cormyr's history, thanks to rulers like Lord Sarp Redbeard who worked for the good of Wheloon, rather than that of the crown. Unfortunately, it later hosted a false temple to Mystra, which was found to be a front for cultists of Shar, and was eventually turned into a prison city for Shar worshipers and Shadovar, and its cobbled streets came to be dominated by gangs of rogues.

Starlight Enclave cover.jpg
Starlight Enclave, released on August 3rd, 2021, is a novel featuring Drizzt Do'Urden by R.A. Salvatore, and the first entry in the The Way of the Drow series.
After the settling dust of the demon uprising and two years of peace, rumblings from the Menzoberranzan drow have Jarlaxle nervous. Worried his allies may be pulled into a Civil War between the great Houses, he is eager to ensure Zaknafein is armed with weapons befitting his skill, including one in particular: Khazid’hea. A powerful artifact, the sword known as “Cutter” has started wars, corrupted its users, and spilled the blood of many, many people. Nonetheless—or maybe because of that—the rogue Jarlaxle and a small group of friends will go on an expedition looking for the weapon’s last wielder, Doum’wielle, in the freezing north, for she may be the key to unlocking the sword’s potential…and perhaps the key to preventing the bloodshed looming over the Underdark.

GT-comic-cover.jpg
The Grand Tour is a limited-edition comic published by TSR, Inc. in 1996. Mainly used as promotional material for Dungeons & Dragons and its campaign setting, the Forgotten Realms, the comic features the now-mature characters from the Dungeons & Dragons animated series, and popular characters from the Realms itself.

The famed sextet of adventurers, Bobby, Diana, Eric, Hank, Sheila, and Presto, appear in Shadowdale after somehow arriving from a different world. During their journeys, they had befriended the magical unicorn, Uni, and even faced off against Tiamat herself. Now in Faerûn, they meet the Old Mage, Elminster, and the wizard of the group becomes his apprentice. Elminster and his new student explore the Realms, where they observe legends such as Drizzt Do'Urden and Qilué Veladorn, and even meet the well-known storyteller, Volothamp Geddarm.
