    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Actually, would reading the "Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" campaign module count, since I am currently working on getting this ready to run for a new tabletop group?

    It's out of the ordinary for me to read about a female lead character - but the intrigue and subterfuge are just amazing in this book.

    I have about 80 pages left, and it seems to be heading to a glorious ending. I haven't been able to figure out how it will end - which is a HUGE plus in my book.

    BRAVO, Mr. Freer!!!
    Done. About 20 pages from the end, I figured it all out... and was VERY pleasantly surprised to be TOTALLY wrong!! Freer has done a great job on this book.

    Next up, more research for my campaign world: "Merchants and Moneymen - The Commercial Revolution, 1000-1500" by Joseph and Frances Gies. Yeah, it sounds boring as hell, but it's to keep the air of reality in my campaign world.

    I believe I picked it up on the 6"x6" section of fantasy books at Wal*Mart. There's not much for sci-fi/Fantasy here in Alabama...

    One of the things that I really like about it is that it COULD be continued in a sequel - or it is just as good sitting as a stand-alone novel. I DESPISE books that just set up an unwritten sequel and leave you hanging - and this was NOT one of those. The characters were believable, their motivations clearly explained (once you were told, anyway), and there were some cool twists in how we view various races in D&D (sahuagin are the "cleaners" of the seas, collecting dead bodies, shaving their hair and weaving beautiful "soul nets" that help the drowned sailors' souls find peace - or else the seas would be overpopulated with ghosts and wandering spirits!!) An aspiring DM/GM can get a GREAT insight on how secret societies work and how REAL schemers work behind the scenes. I could VERY easily have seen this book play out around a table, surrounded by geeks with dice in their hands. Freer is a good story-teller.

    Here's a linky to the book on Amazon for the low, low price of 1.93 for a used copy.

    And in doing that search, I find that there _IS_ a sequel being released this April (Dog and Dragon). I will wait for the paperback and snatch it up as soon as it comes out.

    Having never done much with cyberpunk, aside from a pair of Shadowrun games, I thought

    Aside from a pair of Shadowrun games and watching Bladerunner I've never done spent much time in the cyberpunk setting. I thought I'd change that, and I'm reading Neuromancer.

    I've done even less with steampunk, perhaps I'll dig up some stories in that genre next.

    I'm reading a couple different things right now.

    Star Wars: Darth Plagueis
    One of Don Pendleton's The Executioner books called Volatile Agent.
    I also just got the Daniel X series and want to start reading that too. And I've been itching to read The Lord of the Rings again.

    I am currently reading the last book about Harry Potter - being absolutely busy, I couldn't get to it earlier... I have to say, I quite like it so far.
