Very well written, with a lot of depth to the world and characters coming out from a reasonably short volume. You can see that there is more to these characters than just 2d cutouts of stereotypical traits. the story itself has a feeling of weight to it that you'd usually only find in much longer books but doesn't bog down in exposition beyond what feels natural. The only faults I found are the occasional spelling mistake.
Loved it regardless.
Stream of consciousness tale that might, just might, be going on inside someone's head. Is this a glimpse into someone's innermost secret thoughts?
It doesn't really go anywhere, there's no plot: it is more like evesdropping on thoughts never expressed. Sometimes it's almost like what goes on in my own head.
For we see ourselves far differently from how the world sees us. The uncertainties, the childish imaginings that never quite leave us...
Rather strange tale that appears to talk about someone who fell over... but if there is any point to this story (except maybe don't fall over) it escapes me.
The descriptions are reasonable but it is unsatisfying on virtually every level: plot, characterisation, realism... I reached the end merely in an attempt to see if there was anything at the end to resolve the story, but it didn't.
Not one of Andrijeski's best, alas. He can write well, maybe this was an off day.
Excactly as advertised, although I rarely use music during gameplay, I always listen while scenario writing.
Another excellent product from Pinnacle Entertainment and an awesome price point from Drivethrurpg.com
There's something to be said for keeping a positive outlook on life in the face of adversity, but Jimmy's take it to a hilarious extreme in this short. In a meeting with their son's teacher they react to his rap sheet of escalating transgressions with an amusing ability to find silver linings in everything and anything. It all culminates in a very satisfying, funny end. I won't spoil it, of course.
This is an entertaining short thanks to funny and clever dialogue, the characters that come across with personality despite the short page length, and a great idea executed well....
If the Addams family could be re-wrapped into a more suburbanite format, with all their unusual quirks intact, then this play would be the best representation, to me. The story flows and is visual to the degree that it would make for a great sketch (TV and theatre). The narrative flow works like a charm and has a great dose of that Addams family dark humour at the right points. You can see where it's all going but it doesn't stop you from wanting to read it all to make sure.
This is an interesting concept, a genuine Level-0 adventure that begins with the characters as 'ordinary' people with none of the special abilities or equipment of an adventuring class... but ends up with them fully-equipped and ready to begin a career as adventurers.
The premise is simple. For whatever reason, they are travelling and have stopped for the night in a place that is a lot more than your average inn.
To facilitate the party becoming adventurers, the place is seeded with the items that they need - instruments for bards, spellbooks for wizards and so on. By ensuring that the characters are created in advance, you can know what is needed and make sure it is there: the effect if handled well can be like them having the best Christmas ever with all the stuff they really want turning up!
Layout is basic, nothing more than word-processed, but it is clear with the information you will need to hand in the appropriate place, including monster stats, NPC reactions and so on...
This really isn't my cup of tea but it might be for others. Overall I'm neutral on the product. I think you can tell by the price drop others are as well. If you like western-rock then this might be for you.
It took a while to figure out how to download it to my new Android Next book Google tablet, and once I did, I had to figure how to open it in Adobe Reader. Once I got that figured out, I like the nice format and it is a good, easy book to read. I am enjoying the story so far also. I bought my tablet just to read hard to find, real books that are available in eBook form, for a lot less than a hard to find print-book. Heck, I bought my tablet just for these books, the EarthDawn Novels.
:-) Thank you, DriveThruRPG for having this book and the other EarthDawn novels that you do have. I have also enjoyed your freebies and free RPG day materials that you have. I will be back to purchase another novel soon.
