From beginning to end I was immersed and captivated with this story. The author has great skill for detail; they hit the sweet spot of writing enough despription to keep you fully present without bogging down the narrative. The arc of the main character is very well thought out and nuanced - without spoiling anything I will say there are things I didn't see coming that made the story layers deeper and much more interesting than your every-day hero's tale. I can't wait to see what else this author comes out with - I'm dying for a sequel already! Great work.
Also, the feats and items included with the story are super fun and playable, I really appreciate the inclusion of rules for both 1e and 2e compliance.
