Even This Guy Wears a Belt
Sitting here holding the book, I find that I am happier with it than most of my RPG purchases over the last few years. So often I'm flipping through a new book and thinking "Dear God what the hell did I just buy, and why the hell did I buy this?" This one is still bringing a smile to my face.
It's much nicer than I thought. I've never bought anything through Lulu, and am surprised. I swear, the binding even looks like it will not splinter into a thousand pieces if I open the book up wide. The art is cooler than I thought it would be, and it is so much damn easier that reading the pdf. And what I have read seems to be clearing up misconceptions and confusions that I've had with D&D for 30 years now. I think I have a winner here.
The boy is tucked in his bed reading a tattered copy of The Hobbit. I think I shall grab some ice cream and apple cobbler, retreat into my bedroom, and devour Labyrinth Lord. Oh, and maybe the cobbler and ice cream too.
