|Herald of Oblivion By: Jonathan Green|
Herald of Oblivion is the second in a new series of game books being released by Black Library. These put you in a situation similar to a choose-your-own-adventure novel, but guided by stats, equipment, and dice play.
I'm totally in love with the concept of these game books, but not sure if the idea can justify their price. At $20, plus VAT taxes and shipping, these books are nearly twice their original cost by the time they're in your hands and are only available through Black Library.
What I'm wondering, is if I should get it on the off-chance that it'll be awesome. I'm a sucker for Imperial Fists and the idea of role playing a terminator in a Space Hulk sounds like a blast. What do you think? Is the chance for success worth the cost of entry?
