Three companions who find themselves trapped in a city filled with warring priestly factions, devious machinations, and an angry fiend.

Plays on classic D&D tropes well

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed most how it made fun of some of the classic 2E tropes. 10 foot poles. Analyzing each and every door. Spiking doors after they been opened. If any of these things seem familiar to you, you'll enjoy the books take IMO.

Justice Incarnate With Just a Hint of Flippant Fae

Where does White Plume Mountain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best I have listened too. The character has that Greyhawk feel and is well placed in the original D&D setting. Very well written and very well read.This is a must for anyone that has played D&D when they were young.Chaotic good portrayed in a setting where law is what you say it is when you are out in the wild. Good folk judging bad folk and kicking their butts because they did wrong.


What other book might you compare White Plume Mountain to and why?

This book and it's series is right up there with March up Country read by Rudniki. Both are excellent character builds with stories that propel the main character and their groups into the story.


What does Bernard Setaro Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The tempo is well done and the timing is right on. I read this book many years ago and this reading by Bernard did it justice.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this book and the next in the series were what I was looking for. It would be excellent for a cross country trip in a car or a long flight across an ocean.


Any additional comments?

The characters work well against each other. Polk the teamster is a character everyone knows. No matter how well you do something he makes comments on how it could have been done better, Always there with advice until you ask him his experience and find out he has none. Good nature, well meaning but a know it all makes for a good chuckle from time to time. Throw in a clepto faerie to match wits with the main character who believes justice over all and you you have cocktail for good laughs, interesting situations and the mix to make good friendships.Read it and it's series and you won't regret it.
