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
Believable magic, like ordinary physicis, operates according to some invariable laws that always result in some kind of cost or "bounce back". The grater the magic, the more it should cost the character physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
