User Summary: The kingdom is threatened once again, this time by the ghosts of past champions, guided my a mysterious evil....
Demian's Thoughts: This was a thoroughly disappointing adventure; the Knights of the Round Table show up, you kill them, you discover who summoned them, and then it's all over... not counting all the senseless coin-flipping, number-guessing and time/date-checking that bogs things down in the meantime. The story is even thinner than usual, the encounters are boring more than anything else, and the gameplay is poorly designed and meaningless -- it just makes no sense to penalize the reader for happening to read the book at the wrong time of day or on the wrong day of the week; I've complained about this before, but it's so monumentally wrong that it's worth mentioning again. The only thing I found at all entertaining was the horrible monster encountered on page 69, though even this strange beastie is nothing I haven't seen before. Oh well; maybe the next one will be an improvement....
