Very good stuff. Straight out of the books of Sword and Sorcery (so much so that I was expecting a double-cross). Many of the small elements are beautiful, when you pick them up hold them to the light. (The face through the curtains is a very nice visual). It's lacking a certain something though. I feel like it could benefit from a bit more fleshing out, more magical defenses, or a few events that might occur. Maybe a guest visits? Maybe Baza takes a meal in the garden? How would Baza react to the PCs if they decided to ambush him as he left the house? And where was the bathroom? 4.5/5 Go to Comment
It looks like a cook's book. It is a cook's book. It is also where the cook, who happened to be a master spy, encoded all his secrets and contacts. The book has innocently fallen into your group's hands. Everyone wants it, and many are not subtle or peaceful in their attempts.
