By Monte Cook, Weinlein Cook, Ed Greenwood, Jeff Grubb

As with all anthology a few tales during this set have been larger than others. a few have been general a few have been really stable. such a lot had attention-grabbing characters and plenty of action.
The set additionally supplied a pleasant creation to the land of the Dimond Throne, the atmosphere for Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed RPG.
My merely grievance (and it's a minor one) is that the authors appeared to think that the readers are acquainted with atmosphere and used races and/or monsters which are detailed to the area. this can be effective, yet on occasion i might have cherished to have a bit extra description of those races to be able to know the way they differed from different delusion mainstays (such as people, elves, dwarves, etc). yet this didn't remove from the tales which have been stress-free.

Sample text

It was still hard to smile, even now. On that cool spring morning, when Jynnie came rushing out of the room where she slept and found her father cutting up some bread to take for his lunch, neither of them knew what to do about the rune. Erlen would be late to the mill that day, no doubt about it. Jynnie had the rune right on her face. It was red and green—a swirling pattern that ran down her cheek and onto her chin. Parts of the curving lines framed her right eye in a way that made it seem as though she was looking at you very intently, whether she was or not.

Something within soothed her, calming her again. She closed her eyes and walked right into the flames. She could feel the heat, and feel the fire drawn into her throat and lungs as she breathed, but the sensation never went beyond that. It was uncomfortable (and disconcerting, to say the least), but the flames didn’t burn her. Inside the burning building, she looked around for her father and the two people who worked with him. Unfortunately, while she could ignore the burning of the fire, she still couldn’t see through it.
