Get an angsty high school dropout and get him to design a post USSR communist empire in a sci-fantasy world and it won't necessarily be any more coherent but it would probably be cooler.

Also ORBS are what Monty calls his anal beads.

Most of these EP planets would work better as rumours, actual places that big organisations (which Firewall is supposed to be) been to are much better documented.

Even primitive explorers usually got back good impressions of edibles, valuables and stuff to avoid.

Alchemists must be the biggest chumps ever: a bio automaton janitor who just needs table scraps and a mangy cot in the basement is waaay better than whatever magical nightmare juice you can extract from its corpse.

I think I've probably made my feelings abundantly clear on this game. If anything, I've been more polite than some of the only other reviews you might locate. The language used makes it hard to talk about and you might look at my comments in this update regarding black people and the Japan expy and think I'm exaggerating a bit, but I'm really not.

So, a question to the peanut gallery. There are thirteen free supplemental items for this game and more are coming out all the time. Do you want to hear about ezo-latin food? How about stealing breastmilk from babies? The author's apotheosis? They're all one page, I believe, so there might be one more update in me if people want more.

The only possible way to get a use of the printed material is to declare it to be made up entire from hearsay and subjective opinion.

So Kender aren't thieving children it's just a very shallow look at a non-private property culture and maybe some incidents of misunderstanding.

There was a Death Gate adventure game and it's a good way to experience the best bits of the books (namely the runic magic system) without reading all that dross.
E: it's probably take less than an hour with a walkthrough (90's adventure games died for a reason)

Meanwhile in Good Krynn:

"...As I said earlier humans and some other races have an obsession with hoarding property.
that one time I was wondering about the city I've met a number of dispossessed people who solicited me for coins and food, when I asked them why aren't they being cared for by the greater community they told me that they get by on 'donations'.
That the Idea of holding everything for one's self and then gifting a minute amount based completely on whim is patently insane did not occur to anyone I talked to that day."
