ABOUT THE BOOK
Teddy Bear Island has as many grizzly tales as it does flesh-eating plushies, and it’s bursting at the seams. From the elven vagabond lurking the jungle to the hired mercenaries looting the temple, every corner of the island has its own history, and its own secrets. Tear into this collection of curious, creepy, and downright crazy adventures based on Teddy Bear Island, where escape is never easy, and nothing is quite as innocent as it appears. Around every corner waits something eager for the ripping. Grab your toughest dwarves, your surliest orcs, and your most loyal kobolds, and get ready to spill some stuffing. What story will you tell?
4/5. Although I have never had experience with RPG games, and was unfamiliar with the basis for this book, I really enjoyed reading it. The world that was created in the game is a really interesting platform in which these authors were able to create their characters. The majority of the stories had well-developed and funny characters that I simply was not expecting, given the length of each story. I became very invested in each character’s story very easily and liked the fact that all of the stories, and characters, were so different. I did find, however, that I enjoyed some more than others and that the different paces of each author’s writing made the overall composition seem a bit awkward. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will definitely look into possibly playing the game.
