    Famous Characters

    While the Forgotten Realms is home to many famous characters for books and Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, such as  Elminster and Drizzt Do'Urden,  Faerûn has a large cast of unique characters created for its games.  The Baldur's Gate series is well known for Minsc and Boo, the mighty ranger and his pet hamster, and villains Jon Irenicus and Sarevok.  Some games are based on campaigns, such as pool of radiance, others are original video game stories. In addition to many great developers, particularly Bioware, Forgotten Realm's writers, including Ed Greenwood and R. A. Salvatore, have worked on the storyline of multiple games.
