Astral Wanderer: Have you read Zelazney's Amber books? They start out modern but become fantastic. The first, Nine Princes in Amber has some dated real groovy, daddy-o language but the writing is excellent, characters engaging, and the plot ultimately Byzantine enough for anyone.
I finished The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and finally started The Turn of the Screw, only to find that I have already read Screw. I'm rereading it because it was rather confusing and I don't recall the ending.
Not sure what to read next.
Female Humanish Very little class but on the level
I'm open to fleeing! I'll keep tossing healing and protective stuff which will be useful either way. Remember, we all have an extra 30' of movement for the next minute. ;)
I don't have another align weapon for Varlis' bow, but if somebody flanks with Emerion, all his damage can get through now.
If you love good books but you're broke (like me), check out this site. The Harvard Classics (5 feet of seminal Western literature) are here, as well as many other.
Note: Some of these (the newer works, generally) are only available for online reading, not easy download to an e-reader.
Huh. I just downloaded Heidi from PG, along with an anthology containing Benito Cereno. I'll hit those right after I finish a re-read of Moby Dick.
I also downloaded the autobiography of an executioner along with several books of strange folklore and military gear/tactics. They might be useful in-game.
I downloaded the ePUB of P&P&Z (sounds like a sandwich) from the local library and just finished it, silly thing that it is. The best part is the reader's guide at the end. Now that I know it's permissible to take a classic novel and embellish it with a few new sentences and a sprinkling of changes, my first book will be out before too much longer!
OK, the best part is when Elizabeth lops off Lydia's head, except she doesn't really. But didn't we all want to? Confess!

So... Dawn of the Dreadfuls, Dreadfully Ever After, or Classic Regency romance now with ultraviolent zombie mayhem?

Cayden help us.

I really enjoyed them and was disappointed to find only two Christie mysteries available on Project Gutenberg.
And I'm sure that can be arranged, CH.
Read 'Heart of Darkness', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Sense and Sensibility', and have moved on to 'Agnes Grey'. I need to return to 'Moby Dick' and 'Heart of Darkness' though, because I'm finding what I read affects how I write. I'm sure Wayfinder doesn't need the story of a poor but virtuous and spirited half-orc girl's adventures with beaux and balls.
