Yes. Your mom. She's going to LOVE KQ#12. It's not only becuase your Mom Loves Kobolds... let me tell you why else
It's Kid Friendly
It looks awesome! What a great experience for those kids!
"This tongue is fastened to the front of the froghemoth’s mouth and is normally kept rolled up inside the creature’s head, though it can reach down its own throat with its tongue to dislodge food or items stuck there." -- The Honorable Sir McAnulty
The History Channel is Included
We all know how much Mom loves the History channel, right? Or.. wait.. maybe that's Dad? Anyway... there's not really a subscription to the History Channel included, but there is this really nice, sweet but short article about ... (drum roll please) ... the history of Ninjas, by Catherine McDonald. Ok... before you ask, Catherine is NOT a ninja - but apparently she knows a lot about them. In her article you'll get three lessons about how to be a Ninja in your game.
(Loud barking samurai voice starts now)
"LESSON #1 - A NINJA NEVER BRAGS ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY KICK ASS!"
"LESSON #2 - A NINJA ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING TO KICK ASS WITH!"
"LESSON #3 - A NINJA NEVER RUNS AWAY UNLESS THEY NEED TO RUN AWAY!"
It Has Book Reviews
So, since Moms are all the same - I'm assuming that she gave you the same advice too.
"Now remember son, if you read enough book reviews you can just skip reading the books themselves. Don't ever forget that - it's an important life lesson." -- my Mom.So... look closely... you can see in tiny type on the cover of KQ12 that there are book reviews inside. How many? you ask. Three. i say. What books are reviewed? Pierres Anthony's Steppe, Cherie Priest's Boneshaker, and James Enge's This Crooked Way. And... while I haven't read the books myself, I have to say that the REVIEWS are awesome. Very well written and informative. I might even not need to read the books! Wohoo!
There are tons more reasons why your Mom loves Kobolds -- you just need to talk to her to find out what they are -- and... if she's a gamer like you are, then she's absolutely going to love every single page of KQ12. Just check out what else is inside:
