(From the publisher):
It is the time before Myth Drannor, when the Heartlands are home to barbarians, and wicked dragons rule the skies. In these ancient days, Elminster is but a shepherd boy, dreaming of adventure and heroics. When a dragon-riding magelord sweeps down upon him, though, the boy is thrust into a world of harsh realities, corrupt rulers, and evil sorcerers.
With patience and grit, Elminster sets about to change all that. The result of his labors is a world reborn and a mage made.
The origins of Elminster, mightiest mage in Faerūn, have long been lost in the wash of time. Only the old wizard himself remembers how he came into being, and he hasn't told. Until now...
