it was ok

This would have been better if it could have escaped the trap of sounding *exactly* like a roleplaying game campaign. I don't care if that's what it's based on - there should be a token effort to hide the rolled dice. This would almost be forgivable, if not for the slightly stilted dialogue and the not-infrequent grammatical errors. The book was nearly good enough to overcome two of these issues - one, it could have managed, but with all three, it's just got too many glitches to make it the involved read it could have been.
