I agree with the other guy who said that there was only one good story. The Story that Tasslehoff Promised he Would Never, Ever Tell (which is the real name of the story) was spectacular. It captured the mystery behind the lances. Were they magical, or just steel? The ending of the story still leaves this mystery unsolved. That is excellent literature. Another is war machines. It captures the humorous aspect of gnome machinery and a gnome of many working to perfect his life quest. The rest is absolutely terrible. One other note...I expected the Vingaard Campaign to be awesome. It was terrible.
