Section 1 Spooky Introduction:
|This is my Thursday Evening. the Cover is by Jeff Easley. The interior art is by George Barr. |
George Barr is 82 years old. Jeff Easley is only 64.
All right. I'm drinking wine and playing this solo quest. Allen Varney wrote this. He seems like a cool guy. This book is from 1989. The introduction features to lovers presumably going to bang in a cemetery, when they are killed. Hold on, sorry they are just put to sleep by spooky ghosts.
It is even more metal now. I am dead and the Allen is describing how much I hate the living. I am super jealous of the living. Time for a sip of wine.
Holy shit I am being eaten by a weasel. This could have really used an illustration.
Guys, I killed the weasel.
A quarter of a column later I am talking to the dead weasel. I really need a picture of this weasel.
The weasel just told me I'm undead.
I googled weasel skeleton. They are freaky
Guys! In this choose your own adventure you are a suicidal skeleton that talks to a dead weasel. Allen Varney is a god.
Section 2 There are rules:
Crap now there are like 2 pages of rules out of nowhere. I need to go get a pencil.
OK. I'm back.
Here's the deal I am an undead paladin with amnesia who rolls a d12 to hit stuff. I have something called a cerebricule (I have no idea what that is), a magical sword, and weasel skull(sorry buddy). I am trying to recover my memory and stop being undead. And I have 24 hours and I have to keep track of what time it is. Sounds great. Wait. it turns out I have 24 hours to look for the "staff of waterdeep".
Section 3 Introduction again:OK, that was jarring. Back to the narrative though. A lich is telling me what to do. I have already finished my first glass of wine and I still haven't gotten to make any choices. Ok. the lich says i have to find the staff that can destroy it even though it is scattered around Waterdeep in 12 parts not hurting him. You're losing me Varney. Cool lich drawing though.
|You can ask about most of the items in this picture, which is weird and didn't really move the story forward.|
Section 4: Adventure Time
Actually time for a flashback where I recall my past life. Turns out the liches ex husband and I used to hang out. The weasel skull is starting to get annoying. It's a know-it-all. I'm treating this like a seder in that I'm pouring a second glass of wine.
|This is the cemetery. It's pretty|
|In this picture you can see the bottle of wine I gave to the shrunken head.|
|This is the depiction of Waterdeep. It's covered in sleep gas or else there would have been way more buildings to draw.|
