From back cover:
Caramon, Raistlin, Tika, Laurana, Tanis, Sturm, Flint, Tasselhoff...heroes all, their names are known by everyone familiar with their saga. But there are others as well: veterans of the War of the Lance, players behind the scenes, and even those who had no involvement wit the War whatsoever who are still heroes in their own right. Many are presented here for the first time. Among them:
- Grindlethorpe, the first Krynnish gnome to complete three Life-quests
- Fester, Queen of the Gully Dwarves of Mudhole, wife to Nomscul, Best Cook, Chief Shaman, and Queen's First Husband (a much more distinguished title than "King")
- Liliornin, an elven wizard whose first adventure pitted her against a death knight and an enclave of Wizards of the Black Robe (and introduced here to her longtime adventuring companion)and many, many others.
Each entry is presented in a format akin to the Monstrous Compendium pages, with statistics, proficiencies and other pertinent information, a description, and background material, among other things. Many entries first appeared in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Trading Cards, and have been expanded for inclusion in this product.
