Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    “You know, those five-sided things, Pentegarns. What?”

  2. fred Says:

    Pentegarn is the Wizaaaaaaaard!, so do all of his pillars have knobs on the end?

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    I don’t think stabbing that thing is going to do any good.

  4. Tor Mented Says:

    Why am I thinking of the British character actor Skelton Knaggs?

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    Pick a path to adventure. Choose the wrong path and be bored.

  6. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Everyone groaned at Grandgoof’s “I think it has a bone to pick with us” joke.

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    Every humanoid in this cover has the Left Hand of Cramping, a condition caused by trying to keep five or more places open in your book.

    I can see Jack Black and Karen Gillan, but where’s The Rock?

  8. Francis Boyle Says:

    C’mon Tat, you know the deal. In 1982 the black guy always died first. Next will be the kid – he’s obviously too stupid to live.

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    The wizard must have cooked up some magic sunblock to keep the barbarians’ legs and arms that white.

    This is uncommonly (perhaps not so much here at GSS) ugly and yet dull at the same time.

    Wizaaard seems to be saying “You 3 go on ahead and start stabbing the thing. I’ll be back here, doing er… wizaaard stuff”. The critter appears to be assembled and moving thanks to some sort of magic, so shouldn’t Wiz be taking it out?

    And how annoying is the kid that they put him up front, with just a dagger? (I thought he were a halfling at first)

    @B’man: I agree. Clubs would work better, trying to smash the bones apart.

  12. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Everything is just frozen solid on this cover except her levitating hair.

  13. Cygnia Says:

    If I remember correctly, the kid with the dagger is supposed to represent You (since this is a Choose Your Own Adventure style story).
