The short story takes a brief glance into the world of BareBones Fantasy's 'Karanak Kingdoms' setting. In its 24 pages gives me nothing I did not enjoy. The writing style is accessable and fun, without the kind of shorthand jargon that so easily can be taken for granted in the fantasy gaming community. The only thing really wrong with it is that I now want to know the rest of the adventure and just what happens to the people in the story, which is really quite easy to imagine just how to run in a game of my own. I am prone to leaving a lot of five star reviews, as when I like something well enough to review it, I am usually that pleased wirth it. This story stands well in that esteemable company.

Very exciting tale, that went in a different direction than I expected. RPGs that are supported by fiction have always held a special place in my heart as they reveal the living side of the games and supplements they represent. I feel like I'm very acquainted now with Clave , the knightly order, and the tribe presented in this tale. It felt like i was immersed in an episodic slice of the daily struggles in this game world and i haven't even had a chance to read the rule book yet, which I will read next. Great Tale not too long, not too short, but well made and a great introduction for me to this game system/universe! I hope to see more!

This is a quick little story that drops us right into the action. Author Eric Johnson does a great job giving us just enough information to grab hold of our interest without bogging us down in needless details. The story is fast paced, includes a bit of mystery and tension and gives us a few details of the Keranak Kingdoms without becoming a lexicon. Of the few characters that are introduced, the old knight is excellently written and I finished the story wanting to know more about the character. The main female lead is interesting as well, but in something this short there is just not enough room to give us much more.

Overall, I enjoyed this story and wish there was more. For the price ($1.99), this is a great diversion for someone that likes fantasy and enjoys reading. Eric is clear, well written and easy to digest.

I would recommend this story and look forward to reading more.
