This is the book that introduced me to roleplaying. Having just finished the Darksword trilogy at age 13, I picked up this -- the only other Darksword book I could find on the bookstore shelves -- not realizing that it was a rulebook for an RPG.

Not really related to the original trilogy except that it still takes place in Thimhallan.

I never got interested int eh RPG aspect, but still found the information and details interesting.
