* The short story "Traitors" takes place in -25,089 when elves and humanity are still under the absolute rule of the dragons. The elven rebel Winterflower is involved in a plot by rebel nobles to steal draconic magic. During her mission, she suffers a TraumaCongaLine of being the hostage daughter of a rebel lord, having to pretend to be a gold dragon's consort (consensual, but she was not happy about having to do it), narrowly escaping when her plans to steal his magic grimoires going horribly wrong, her entire rebel army being incinerated by aforementioned PO'd gold dragon when he realizes what she's done, her lover dying in battle against the dragon and finally learning that she was the only one of the runners who survived the destruction of the rebel base. Each of the runners was given one of the stolen grimoires in the hope that some part of their mission to steal draconic sorcery would succeed and that the huge sacrifices made wouldn't be in vain. She crosses the DespairEventHorizon when she realizes that her book isn't even a spellbook and starts to throw it into her campfire but relents. Maybe there's a ''small'' possibility that an abstract treatise on the relationship between dragons, nature and the stars could proved useful. The DistantFinale shows that 89 years later, the gold dragon and his court were watching the night sky when a red star rose in the heavens...

* Torm, a minor and obscure deity at the time, sacrificing himself to destroy [[BigBad Bane]] in the city of Tantras. This event was so awesome that the Ao, the overgod, resurrected him personally for remaining loyal to his portfolio.

* Most of RA Salvatore's attempts at a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for his characters come off seeming a little cheesy, but most of them still get at least really good one.

* [[RealNameAsAnAlias Lhaeo]]. It's hard to tell what Khelben expected from him [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive proclaiming]] that now he's called, it's time for the RightfulKingReturns as opposed to "hiding behind the beard of the Old Goat". But apparently did ''not'' expected to see all his [[GuileHero chronic]] [[KnightTemplar vices]] briefly summed up, washed in vitriol and handed to him. Including the fact that he, obviously, ''stolen'' the Royal Regalia he so grandly offered to the would-be king. Lhaeo obviously knew exactly who and what Blackstaff is and still ''flattened'' a semidivine being playing the hand of destiny. AwesomeMomentOfCrowning can wait, but CrowningMomentOfAwesome should never be missed (he got both). Khelben later even apologized for the "theft" in writing... hiding behind "Mystra's grace", of course. With "Your Majesty" and all. [[hottip:*:''Lands of Intrigue'', [[http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/downloads freely available]].]]

** YourMileageMayVary. Lhaeo had originally been willing to entirely skive off the job until Khelben arrived to shame him into it, even Sylune agreed that it was the opportune strategic time to try for a reconquista of Tethyr (when before it would not have been feasible), and returning aleady-stolen property to its rightful owner is ''not'' theft. But Khelben's role ''is'' to be the ButtMonkey in any plot involving Elminster (just take a gander at ''The Fall of Myth Drannor'' for a hilarious example), so, not surprising it happened.
