LOOKING FOR FEEDBACK

Just a quick question:

Most of the CRPG blogs out there write about their adventures from the perspective of the player, talk about the mechanics of the game, etc.  In order to try to be different, I approached Champions of Krynn through the eyes of the adventuring party.  But, I'm not sure if it's working out.

What do you prefer?  Do you prefer straight reviews or do you enjoy reading the story as seen through the eyes of the characters in the game?

  1. I prefer either. I know that doesn't help much, but let's just say I'm enjoying it as is.

    I must be psychic. I was just wondering last night if you were going to make a post in which you asked this question. o_o

    1. Wow, you really must be psychic, considering I didn't even think about asking that question until today. I enjoy telling the story through the eyes of the characters and allowing people to see how the stories in the games develop. I suppose there are plenty of blogs already where they can read a straight review.

  2. Well, I've only read one post so far. I thought it was pretty humorous and well done.
    Not sure if that's what you're looking for, but that's my opinion.

    Both types of 'reviews' have their place.
    I didn't realize there were other people out there like me who liked the old CRPGs or I might have found you sooner!

    1. It's helpful to know that someone finds it entertaining. So, that's something. I just wasn't sure what people enjoy reading more. Just wanted some feedback, and that's what you've given.

  3. I really enjoy your writing, and hope you will continue like this.

    Keep it going like it has please! It heavily reminds me of the way that I remember the Goldbox games and FRUA. I remember the story and the pacing, I don't remember the hassle of looking up entries in a book and such.

    Personally I'd like both. While your style is entertaining I wouldn't mind some more critical analysis of the games' design and mechanics. I like how your characters comment on some of the illogical parts of the games, though, like that the city watch of Phlan should have no problems clearing out the slums.

    Although too much analysis can ruin the experience...
