Oh, this is a game? Not a book?
And more importantly, how do you know he's a Gary Stu? How do you know he wasn't decided for you to hate him? Does he look exactly like the author but with a better body? Is the author named Elminster?

Elminster is a Gandalf impersonator in Vegas. For about $25 an hour he'll show up at your wedding and smoke some pipeweed.

Elminster is the Grand High Gary Stu of Faerun, and the most blighted creation Ed Greenwood ever conceived. He's the kind of character who you either adore or you loathe.

And he's even worse in the novels. Screw you, Forgotten Realms. House Vadalis shall stand tall! *Eberron reference to Xiao's favourite group to play as*

Still, it could be worse. He could be Drizzt.


Are you talking about the Drizzt in the earlier books, or later on? He wasn't such a Gary-Stu in the first 2-3 books as he is now.

I never liked Drizzt, he's only gotten worse as the books have kept on going, and to top it all off EVERY GROUP I PLAY WITH has a wanna-be Drizzt fanboy. It hurts me, it hurts me so much...

I'm not sure anyone I play D&D with reads the books very much. They never mention it during the games, except to call the Drow whiny.
