Generated by ABC Amber LIT Converter, http://www .processtext.com/abclit.html The Legacy R.A. Salvatore Prelude The rogue Dinin made his way carefully through the dark avenues of Menzoberranzan, the city of drow. A renegade, with no family to call his own for nearly twenty years, the seasoned fighter k new well the perils of the city, and knew how to avoid them. He passed an abandoned compound alo ng the two mile-long cavern's western wall and c ould not help but pause and stare. Twin stalagmi te mounds supported a blasted fence around the w hole of the place, and two sets of broken doors, one on the ground and one beyond a balcony twen ty feet up the wall, hung open awkwardly on twis ted and scorched hinges.

He shoo k his slender shoulders and pulled his concealin g piwafwi cloak around him, remembering how vuln erable a houseless drow could be. A quick glance toward the center of the cavern, toward the pil lar that was Narbondel, showed him that the hour was late. At the break of each day, the Arch-ma ge of Menzoberranzan went out to Narbondel and i nfused the pillar with a magical, lingering heat that would work its way up, then back down.
