By Kent David Kelly on June 19, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is one of the rare books in Gary Gygax's Gord the Rogue series. Although begun with TSR (with the release of Artifact of Evil and Saga of Old City), when Gygax was unceremoniously removed from the company, he took his finest creation with him. This one is interesting because instead of being a single tale, the book is divided into 9 short stories, each highlighting a different time and place in Gord's illustrious career. In The Heart of Darkness, Gord and Chert plunge into the Ruins of Castle Greyhawk; in Cats vs. Rats, the Thieves Guild of Greyhawk is thrown into chaos, with highly amusing results; and in A Revel in Rel Mord, Gord finds himself preyed upon by a sinister circle of Night Hags. Each story is a wonderful slice of Greyhawk lore; lots of details of the monsters, locations, and personalities of this famous world are revealed at every turn - lore which you can't find in any other book! And of course, readers can delight in the master himself, as we finally get to see how an AD&D adventure game should *really* be played. Although a bit disorienting to anyone not intimately familiar with the saga of Gord the Rogue, Night Arrant receives my utmost recommendation. It's that good!

This book helps to flesh out Gord as a carouser and rogue. The stories are often comical yet Gygax is able to successfully build suspense nonetheless. This is required reading for any D&D fan (or anyone that likes fantasy, for that matter).

Some may say that Gygax wasn't a very good writer, I disagree, I love the way the story line flows and watch how Gord evolves from a scrawny street urchin to a move and shaker of his world.

Just terrible writing, the dialog is ridiculous. No one talks the way Gygax writes. The plot for the stories are undeveloped with the stories ending abruptly without any real sense of finale

Not bad for a Gygax novel, he should have stuck to short stories like this collection.
