Mini Review - One Night in Slateholm (Gaming Fiction)
One Night in Slateholm is +Chris Gonnerman 's 1st Volume of what will hopefully be a multi volume set of gaming flavored fiction.
Although I felt the start of the story was slow, when it hit it's speed the virtual pages flew by. A warrior and a half elven magic user / thief get in over their necks trying to save a young woman from an evil wizard. Sure, it may seem like a hokey premise, but it works.
We get to see some classic spells get put to use (charm person and web were two of my favorite spell scenes), well done dungeon scense and most importantly, I only caught one typo.
If you enjoyed the classic TSR fiction - this is better than most and sticks closer to the gaming rules sources. Definitely a good yarn if your are looking for some gaming fiction for your virtual bookshelf.
If you have a Kindle and an Amazon Prime account, you can even read it for free ($3.25 otherwise)
