I'm glad the next book is waiting for me in my queue. He'll oppose the evil plans of the Dark god, Murmur, whatever it takes. Because this has the veneer of a book I should hate: 1 It's self-pubbed. I will admit that being a long time player of Dungeons and Dragons I picked up on a lot of winks and nods that the uninitiated would probably miss. For the gamers who were playing the adventurers, it's not a big deal--after all, that's what backup characters are for.
An old-fashioned fantasy tale with a feel not unlike Ready Player One. I also enjoyed the basic character setup. This books pulls together some great 'what if' ideas from fantasy tabletop role playing. It was common knowledge, after all. This book is for you! Would you be willing to try another book from Drew Hayes? I liked how the author played with the expected stereotypes the gnome would be the rogue, the noble girl would be the mage.
What I truly enjoyed, though, was the play against stereotypes. It was a pleasant read. What if you choose the role of Wizard, but you're more suited to the role of Barbarian? Recall, if you will, that I initially read this book because it was in the Kindle Unlimited program. At the end of the day its a good fantasy about a group forced to danger beyond expectation or desire and how they cope with and overcome it. I was actually unexpectedly surprised, as opposed to expectedly surprised I suppose. An interesting story with a definite unusual approach.
Overall I enjoyed the book and would gladly read more by Hayes along this vein. Granted, I love hearing them all enjoying themselves so much but there is no pull to join, the whole thing is an anathema. And what a unique presentation he's brought to the table! The As you may guess from the title, there's a certain amount of role-playing games involved in this fantasy. Most fittingly it does it in the printed medium requiring your imagination much like the materials it lovingly references. They aren't the heroes, just the people that try to survive the heroes. I really enjoyed it and will likely pick up the next in the series if it sticks with me after all the other books I have to read. Of course, that's a terrible arrangement for the Shadowkin; orcs, goblins, kobolds, and their ilk must apply for to become Noncombatant Paper Carriers to avoid being killed and looted by heroes.
Topple the most famous player in Saga Online. And someone get on writing it. When the quest has been given, the steeds saddled, and the adventurers are off to their next encounter? I just couldn't get past that part. Especially considering that your in-game partner is someone really special to you - and this person already lives a virtual life? Of course this doesn't take a lot, a whole lot into account. When the quest has been given, the steeds saddled, and the adventurers are off to their next encounter? Things don't quite as expected and I really enjoyed most of this book. I rather enjoyed this book, I did.
I still haven't, though, because I couldn't figure out how to tell them about it any better than I could come up with a review. No one understood why, but the more adventurers were around, the greater the number of monsters that were drawn. And what if this was the only thing you're really good at? I just read a book by this author Drew Hayes and really enjoyed and am waiting for the next in that series I decided to wait for the audio. This was definitely good fun : I listened to the audiobook narrated by Roger Wayne, who was a new-to-me narrator. Normal and boring, that is, until the day their father's best friend shows up at their house - dressed in what appears to be a bathrobe. How would you like to bust your hump for a large corporation 60-plus hours a week without a wage or a single day off for the vague promise of some mysterious perks in the distant future? Which you might be, you pervy minxes.
The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them. The voice acting was some of the best I've heard. I expect rampant sexism, ableism, racism but it's not racist if the race being hated on isn't a real race! Once the dust settles, these four find themselves faced with an impossible choice: pretend to be adventurers undertaking a task of near-certain death or see their town and loved ones destroyed. By and large, they are one-note, one-dimensional characters whose sole purpose is to serve the story and help the players achieve their objective or to oppose them in their efforts and allow for gleeful slaying of copious quantities of kobolds. You'll never look at Goblins the same way again. Through only his wits and his guts to help him survive a weakened arrival, Edward must rise to power if he is to earn the right to live another day. While there are some funny and ironic moments mostly related to breaking stereotypes or recognizing player behaviour it's not really a comedic book, which seems like a lost opportunity.
It was kind of a blast, actually. I got kind of attached to some of the ones I helped make. Would Lola, the Loquacious Courtesan with the heart of gold ever pursue her dream of becoming a file clerk? Specifically, they assume the role of the four dead people. By and large, they are one-note, one-dimensional characters whose sole purpose is to serve the story and help the players achieve their objective or to oppose them in their efforts and allow for gleeful slaying of copious quantities of kobolds. I was actually surprised by how much deeper this book turned out to be on a certain level.
My time would probably be better spent on a different series. The voice acting was really good. It was like they grouped up in scale to the number of adventurers present to give a proper challenge. Perfect excuse to burn and pillage, say, the village the four people are standing in. Since I can't handle prolonged cuteness, I read the book in small chunks, interspersed with more serious texts specifically, Vicious, which is a history of human brutality to wolves, and the self-explanatory Emperor Wu Zhao and Her Pantheon of Devis, Divinities, and Dynastic Mothers. One who is always a brute but is trying to be more in touch with his human side because it's hard to reconcile your savage, violent nature with your civilized, white-person half, amirite? As far as that sort of thing goes. I just read a book by this author Drew Hayes and really enjoyed and am waiting for the next in that series I decided to wait for the audio.
