    I would have to say (besides Drizzt).... Jarlaxle...he was just a very cunning, mysterious, and intelligent character and no matter the situation he always kept his cool...besides who wouldn't want to be the leader of a powerful rogue group such as Bregan D'aerthe??? then I would say Artemis Entreri...who was just as clever and talented.

    Tarl Desanae from Pool of Radiance, Darkness and Twilight. Militaides from those books is pretty cool too. And I know I'll catch a lot of flack for this but I can't stand Drizzt

    hmm... yeah I like Drizzt thought there's something about him that bugs me... Jarlaxle is very cool, the reason Dragn9 gave.

    Jarlaxle's bad-ass. I haven't read forgotten realms in QUITE a while, so I can't remember who else I liked,.... Danilo would probably be one, Liriel Baenre is pretty sweet too. Alias from Azure Bonds is pretty cool too. That's all I can remember :( Oh! The old wizard in Cormyr (the present part) and the female mage who protects... Azoun the 1st I believe? And also the shapeshifting one from the present part of that book. Man, Cormyr was such a good book, I need to read it again!

    Artemis Entreri - a most fascinating character! Complex, yet elusive. Definitely my fav.! :D

    I completly agree with Freedom, Artemis Entreri is the best. He rivals Drizzit in skill with blades and is the most savy in my opinion. His insidious plans truly show us that The Ends justify the means. Plus whats cooler then an Assassin really? Ill have more when i finish Servent of the shard (book 1 of the spellsword saga)

    Hands down, it would have to be Morik the rogue. drizzt may be the better swordsman, but there nothing better then cheating to win. Plus he's a master of disguise

    For me, I found Morik to be a bit of a surprising character. Who would have thought he'd end up with a bit of honor about him? *shrugs*

    Rumblebelly is a great anti-hero... I like those! Not the toughest or most complex of characters but I kept longing for the parts about Regis when I read Icewind Dale Trilogy.

    Drizzt is cool, of course. He's got a llot of noble qualities, and kicks ass with his blades. On that note...

    I think Entreri is such a loser! (Sorry, Enreri-fans, don't flame me!) He's so petty, narrow-minded and narrow-visioned. Can't he just DIE already?! Ugh! :D

    I also love Sarevok (from the Baldur's Gate games). He's the son of a human mother and the God of Murder, Bhaal. Such a cool bad guy! Very charismatic :) And he's actually portrayed alright in the books, unlike most the other characters.

    Elaith Craunolber and Danilo Thann are the most interesting characters. I also like Drrizt and Jarlaxle.

    I love the dragon lord characters in forgotten realms but if it the Drizzt series every one is talking about

    Pickle boulder shoulder would be my favorite.

    Drizzt. There needs no words to explain his greatness. It is all summed up in the word DRIZZT.

    Read the Dark Elf Trilogy. Then the Icewind Dale Trilogy. Thats Homeland, Exile, Sojourn, The Cystal Shard, Streams of Silver, and The Halflings Gem. Im currently reading Streams of Silver. However, read HOMELAND. It will get you hooked.

    Oh, and Drizzt still rocks! :banana:

    HA! I am right there with you Winterine, I utterly hate Entreri, he should have died the first time, but no he just keeps on getting saved, now there is some crap with a shade. Oh well, I am one of the only people to come out to the RAS boards about my hatred of the character, I wish more people would though.

    Artemis Entreri is an intriguing character... kind of like Pe Ell... the assasin from The Heritage of Shannara, although I like the later best.
