30. In 1986 Greenwood sold his campaign setting to TSR. Since 1987, Forgotten Realms has grown into a successful gaming project. Greenwood has worked on almost all TSR projects. Fans of computer role-playing games with experience must have come across at least a few games from the "SSI" company, to which Greenwood had a hand ("Eye of the Beholder III: Assault on Myth Drannor"), not to mention "Baldur`s Gate", " Tales of the Sword Coast and Baldur`s Gate II, which he worked on for Interplay, Black Isle and BioWare. Greenwood is the author of several novels and many stories about the Forgotten Realms world. Co-authored several times. He invented Elminster, a powerful magician, one of the recurring characters in the Forgotten Realms books and games. Elminster: The Birth of a Magician is his first hardcover novel. Ed Greenwood about myself “I cannot remember a time when I was not a reader, fantasy lover, and a writer or storyteller (that is, I came up with new adventures for the heroes from the moment the book ended). I grew up reading avidly; In my parents` house, in the homes of all my grandparents and other relatives, there was a magical room full of books, and as soon as the formalities of the visit were over, that was where I headed ...

to spend wonderful hours reading! I already had publications from the age of 7, but it was not (for my family of writers, teachers, etc.) such a great achievement. I loved reading books by J.R.R.

Tolkien, William Morris, Fritz Leiber, Lord Dunsany, and others (and all of the Ballantine classic Lin Carter fantasies as soon as they came out), and I wanted to tell new stories about swords, wizards and crumbling castles. I especially liked Leiber`s habit of writing completely independent, complete stories, the action of which only took place in the same world, so that the world in the "background" was completed with each new thing I read ...

and I decided to do the same with my (terrible ) fantasy stories. I started writing in this manner stories about Forgotten Realms (focusing mainly on Myrtle, a fat, Falstaff-like, Conan-like, old and short-of-breath kind of Conan) long before the D&D game (circa 1967), but when As AD&D came out, I quietly changed everything in my writings to better match the specific characteristics of monsters from the Monster Manual, and Vance`s "limited memory" magic system from the Player`s Handbook. I also started playing AD&D games, this spurred me to write new stories, I started using Forgotten Realms to illustrate articles I wrote for Dragon magazine (since 1979, although I was not published until the 30th issue), and ultimately TSR, wanting a new world for the 2nd edition of AD&D, bought them from me with all their magic guts. I never looked back, and I never had time for this!
