Glad I Read It

****( )

I am not a huge fan of the Kung-fu genre nor is Tian Xia an area of Golarion I care much about. Therefore it has taken me a while to pick up this book (certain for a while that I never would). I'm glad I picked it up.

This book delivers what it promises, great Kung Fu feel. It takes two of Pathfinder Tales' most famous characters and transports them around the world. They and their loyal companion are soon split from each other and placed in very different circumstances. In doing this Mr. Gross explores much of Tian Xia (culturally if not geographically) from different perspectives. They mythology, the organizations, the history are all so well laid out and presented with fun and exciting events that the reader can't help but get caught up in them while learning about the world.

This is all accomplished while nodding repeatedly to the genre as a whole which brings a smile to the reader's face when seen through the very thin rice paper that veils it.

Pick it up. You won't be disappointed.

Too Fragile

***( )( )

I am not a metal, custom painted type of mini collector. I like the minis painted and rugged. These are not rugged.

I love most of the sculpts and paints, but I've found these need to be handled far to carefully. I've had four of them break on me already, and that's just because I put them all in the same box (unpadded) to transport. These would be great minis if not for the brittle plastic.

One other thing of note, and this is to the entire line (including the forthcoming Runlords set) there are too many repeats. Too many goblins, too many duplicates of what can be found in that "other" line of pre-painted fantasy minis. What about some truly unique minis, like say a Froghemoth or perhaps a sahuagin or mite or something.

A Fun Read and a Brilliant Muse

*****

Got my hard copy in the mail today, and it is everything I could have hoped for. A quality print product, well laid out, easy to reference.

The content? Brilliant. I've read YWH since the first post on the KQ blog, so much of this was not new to me (though some of it is). Every entry is not only useful flavor, but has some great mechanics for putting into a game. It also has the stats for both the Master and the Homunculus.

Get it . . . now.

Another Win

*****

KQ is (as someone famous said) what a gaming magazine should be.
There is so much useable content, including some wonderfully wicked stuff such as truly horrific monsters and Derro alchemist options. Plus this issue has a great interview with Christina Stiles--her gaming history, her passion for the hobby and how she's turned her passion into game writing.
If you aren't a subscriber, you should be.

Harrowing Indeed

*****

We finished book 1 last night. I know that our GM (who is excellent) made some tweaks, and I have not read the original. However, this was perhaps the best round of RP sessions I have ever had, and the content of Harrowstone are to be credited. Yes, yes, and yes again.
