Demian's Thoughts:

This is the first of the four books based on the Runesword fantasy novels from Ace Books. These books are a bit larger than the rest of the series, and they feature tear-off flaps attached to the front and back covers. The back cover flap is the character sheet, while the front cover flap is a set of six square cards which can be cut apart. The cards included with this book are four red spells (33 - Blinding Flash, 34 - Wall of Flame, 35 - Enlarge and 36 - Magic Blast) plus two items (the Stones of Amber and a Silver Wand). There is also mention in the rules of role-playing books related to these fighters; this probably explains why the character sheet lists a skill (Linguistics: 7) that has no bearing on combat, but I don't think this role-playing system ever came to pass. As for Bith herself, she's not an especially notable character, and I can't comment on the accuracy of the adaptation from the Runesword books, since I haven't read any of them.

soren_nyrond's Thoughts:

Notes: She is described as a 'Cleric' but actually acts more like a Junior Miss sorceress. Her only weapon is a dagger, which makes for poor damage modifiers; on the other hand, she has more 'Cast Magic' slots than anyone else, and one of her spells is capable (if it hits) of taking many opponents out in one pass.
