Sorcery, book 4 – the final stage, the infiltration of Mampang Fortress to take back the Crown of Kings from the Archmage. My journey through the Baklands leaves me in an interesting predicament: Skill 10, +1 sword, +2 armband of swordmastery = 14. Nice. Luck 14. No joke; a natural 12 then books 1 and […]

Unbelievable. The Seven Serpents, book 3 of the Sorcery! epic, is just merciless. I made it all the way to the Lake Ilklala… without meeting a single serpent. I know that’s not good, that I should have run into at least 2 of them during Act 1. Then the book let me jerk around for […]

Infinite Universe, though, is a sci-fi adventure. So let’s check it out… I’ll […]

Spectral Stalkers… still In my last update, I had found my way to the Ziggurat World and watched a silica serpent eat somebody alive, and befriended some sea creatures who think I can save their queen. I have climbed the cliff to the second level of this world. I see some towers in the distance […]

We continue being Spectrally Stalked as we travel the cosmos in a series of vignettes, courtesy of the Aleph. I have so far seen a giant library outside of the universe, a crappy version of my home world where I was almost robbed, a chess game in which I was a pawn, a clay golem, […]

I am taking a brief break from the Caverns of the Snow Witch, because frankly it’s ticking me off. I grab a book at random off the shelf, and… Spectral Stalkers I have played this one before, and already have it on the website. It’s written by Peter Darvill-Evans, and illustrated by Tony Hough – […]
