    Birthright Books

    I am not playing BR right now, as one of the players has
    an aversion to AD&D from a bad incident with WHFRPG. They
    hate this other game with a vengeance, however they have
    not played AD&D and are unwilling to do so because of the
    bad experience with the other game.

    Now I would like to know what people consider to be the
    best Birthright novel, which could entice this player to
    consider playing Birthright. Is there one that has decent
    intrigue, and good adventure ?

    I must admit that I have never read a RPG inspired novel
    that I know of.

    TIA



    Dom

    yep, i would suggest 'The Iron Throne' by Simon Hawke, i *believe*
    (not sure about the author)
    excellent piece of work, which really gets the blood flowing in
    those viens..

    My personal favorite BR book is Greatheart. It gives a good flavor for BR
    elves, IMO, and I liked the Shadow World snippets. It is not, however, a
    "fight the monsters, save the damsel, grab the treasure" novel. I also
    enjoyed the Iron Throne and the Spider's Test. The Spider's Test is
    significantly shorter than the Iron Throne and, as a result, an easier
    read. These novels are both written from a realm-forging (Spider's Test)
    or realm-saving (the Iron Throne) standpoint.

    The Hag's Contract, IMO, was just OK, and I thought some of the material in
    War was very inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18. The same could
    be said, to a lesser extent, about the Iron Throne. I don't want to read
    about sex in a novel based on a TSR game world.

    This is all just IMO, of course. I'm sure other people have much different
    ideas about the best BR novels. I'm a big fan of the Sidhelien, so I was
    pre-disposed toward liking Greatheart.

    Regards
    Craig

    The best AD&D inspired novels?

    THe Deeds of Paksenarrion (written by a now established author Elizabeth
    Moon and not tied to AD&D or a gamewrold specifically nor published by TSR
    but the elements are ones taken froma Role-playing game that Leizabeth Moon
    was involved in) this book tells the story of one Paksenarrion
    Dorthoansdottir from dauther of a sheepherder-mercenary-freewarrior-paladin
    and it is an utterly brilliant read for character development.

    I would have to go with the story of Michael Roele in the book called
    the Iron Throne. This sets the stage for Birthright Anuirean campaigns.
    The Hags Domain is good for brecht campaigns and the Spiders Test
    (Endier) are both good too, but go with the Iron Throne. Greatheart is
    about elves and is okay. War the follow up to the Iron Throne is okay
    also. But go with the Iron Throne. I need to get a new copy as I read
    mine to the binding went off and every time I read it I find something
    new.

    I must say I did like all Birthright novels I did read. I would suggest you
    to make him read "The Iron Throne" or "The Spider's Test".

    They refuse to play AD&D, because they don't like Warhammer Fantasy
    Roleplay? Where's the logic in that? Why, that's like refusing
    to eat oranges, because you don't like bananas...
