Default The Burning Shore

Anyone else read this book? I think its pretty good, I liked the way it goes in depth with the Slaan, showing its immense intelligence. Overall I can't find anything wrong with the book. Anyone else have any comments?

It truly is a fantastic book. By astonishing coincidence, I created a Bretonnian Mercenary soon after reading that book.

A Bretonnian, who has some rich relatives, finds he has worked up a very large debt with the local loan sharks, and his brother can't bail him out. Not too eager to have his kneecaps broken with a smith-hammer, he joins an expedition to Lustria.

The journey is long and perilous, for the seas of the Old World are not kind, and nor are the beasts within, or the crews that sail on her...

Upon reaching Lustria, the expedition finds an ancient temple. Within the temple are great riches... but the place is not unguarded.

...and you'll have to read it for the rest.

I assume you mean it is not unguarded?

Sounds good...funny, or dark?

I agree, the servant is probably one of the best characters in the book. And... well there's really not much you can go into without giving anything away.

Not the servant, the slave! The guy who's a pet for the Scar-Veteran!

Oh! You mean the crazy old man...Gottfried, Scythera's pet? I was thinking of Lorenzo. My bad. I re-read some of it today... and I think it hints at the ancient Mage-Priests being able to travel by the webway... or something like it. Says they could travel to other planets in the system.
