Run Like Hell (Book 1 of Wandering Monsters)


Elliot Kay's new book Run Like Hell asks and answers the question: "What is it like to be the monsters when an adventuring party kicks down your front door?"

Although the book is technically game-related literature, it doesn't have the usual hallmarks of character sheets or explicit rules elements. It's just set very solidly in the generic fantasy game setting, with the perspective reversed. Gaming fans will have a lot to recognize while finding quite a lot of new and interesting elements from the perspective shift. It's definitely light reading, and quick at just under 200 pages.

Highly recommended for gamers, who will find a few hours of light amusement at a good price (free via Kindle Unlimited). Non-gamers can probably take a pass, not because it's bad, but because you won't have any idea what's going on or why it's funny. Very reminiscent of Drew Hayes.
