No wonder that this adventure put Zedeck Siew on the indy RPG map. It's so good.

A great non-Western, native take on southeast Asian folklore and fantasy in an easy-to-understand and flavorful package. He imparts so much of the culture and the vibe through simple tables and descriptions, without ever needing to go on a lengthy diatribe.

The bachelor is such a great villain, divided against himself, striving for godhood, physically and metaphysically tied to the land. Mythic. Yet still approachable for adventurers.

Note that this is a sandbox, not an adventure path. There's no linear path for the game to follow. It's an exciting and tense powderkeg for the players to light fire to however they want. Siew gives a few suggestions for directions the PCs may wish to go at the end, but the choice is theirs.

I ran Lorn Song of the Bachelor a while ago and it's a wonderful adventure. A living regional sandbox, A mythic journey into the psyche of a demigod, a mystery and a jungle adventure that manages to avoid the typical supported by art and writing that work well together and offer up the sense of an actual place. Simple to run, evocative, well paced and a foray into the unusual both grounded and coherent.
