With all the "blurps" and "glorps" in this session report, I thought it was taken straight from the script of Spaceballs! I'm not sure the report is going to play well in Toledo, but the rest of the world will have a blast reading through this. Excellent job!

I've read enough of these kinds of monologue-esque reports to know that they don't often end well...you'll have to see if this is another such report. Our reporter does a great job giving us a view into our hero's head and it's an engaging read. Bravo!

Wow, so this is what you get for 100 pieces of gold.

While it may not be quite up to the level of the great English writer mentioned in the title, this offering does something quite remarkable: it turns a rather dry gameplay (and this is coming from a great fan of the game) into something that can read like an enjoyable tale. I just wish there was more of it. Great work!
