This is really such value for money that I have never seen.
I really appreciate a 2-part solo adventure within one work, it feels like 2 separate experiences to enjoy together.
I actually like the linear progression of encounter numbers for once, especially after years of gamebook adventures in which every entry is given a random, forgettable number.
I also find the brown / red descriptive text a pleasantly nostalgic surprise, for I once had a core rulebook printed out in that colour, and that left an indelibly unusual gaming experience that remains almost visceral since.
Once again, the Chronicles of Arax scores with me, by providing a simple but nutritious pampering for the all-too-often overlooked genre of solo story gaming.
