5.0 out of 5 stars A great Sword and Soul collectionBySteve Rosensteinon March 8, 2016Format: Kindle EditionAs an introduction to the upcoming RPG of the same name, Ki Khanga: The Anthology succeeds on several levels. The first thing is that it lays out the wonderfully detailed setting of the the world in which the game exists; a pre-prehistoric Africa, similar to Howard's Hyborian setting. Many of the concepts that one can imagine will be important in the game are covered in these stories: magic, spirituality, technology, social and cultural items are all integrated into the tales of the anthology giving the reader a taste of what they can look forward to in the game. Even short tales, such as "A Name Long Forgotten" serve as great adventure hooks for a game, revealing much even in their brevity. 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.
