I should have known better, I know. I picked this book up because, every time I peruse the role-playing games section at Barnes & Noble, I yearn for those days. So I picked up the first book of TSR’s newest role-playing milieu, thinking to lose myself in a brand new, imaginative, fun world. And it was bad. I have made it through twenty-five pages, and I’m throwing the book away. The first problem? The font. The [picture of the first page](http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0786935847/ref=sib_rdr_ex/103–8864882-9534203?%5Fencoding=UTF8&p=S00E#reader-page) doesn’t do it justice. It is awful. Tiny, jagged, too thick… hard to read. Though I could stomach that if the book itself weren’t slow, unimaginative, trite, and full of fanboy “coolness” that no longer appeals to the twelve-year-old in me. Perhaps because he is thirty-four.
