You don't need to care about the RPG to enjoy this, though. I think any fan of Fantasy fiction should give it a look. There are some technical issues (formatting glitches and misspellings), especially in the latter part, but it wasn't too distracting.
One issue I have though is that I think Watu-Joka is more correct than Joka-Watu if you want to say "dragon people" in Swahili. I'm not an expect, but from what I've read Watu-Joka is better.
The anthology is not without flaws, however. As is often the case with anthologies, the quality of writing ranges from pretty good to mediocre. In this Kindle edition, there were also numerous typos. On one occasion, a character's name kept switching back and forth from one thing to another, and it did so often enough that I couldn't be sure which was correct and which was a typo. Overall, they were a minor, but noticeable distraction. They had best find a good editor before they send this thing off to print.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed this anthology, and I eagerly await the release of the roleplaying game later this fall.
As one delves further into the book, the stories shift from shorter, almost oral histories to full blown Sword and Soul and Steamfunk takes. There are recurring themes and villains, city names pop up in different stories helping to weave a rich vibrant world populated by noble heroes, jokers, warrior women, sorcerers, fools and straight-up bad-asses. Even if you don't like Role Playing Games, if you like Sword and Soul or Sword and Sorcery, pick up this book, you will be glad that you did.
