Audio Book: NPC
Every once in awhile, I like to share the current audio book that I am listening to. For me to reference it here, the story has to be 'Warcraft'-ish in theme. This book, is titled "NPC" and has a 4.4 out of 5 star rating on Amazon. The cover text from Amazon says"
What happens when the haggling is done and the shops are closed? When the quest has been given, the steeds saddled, and the adventurers are off to their next encounter? They keep the world running, the food cooked, and the horses shoed, yet what adventurer has ever spared a thought or concern for the Non-Player Characters? In the town of Maplebark, four such NPCs settle in for a night of actively ignoring the adventurers drinking in the tavern when things go quickly and fatally awry. Once the dust settles, these four find themselves faced with an impossible choice: pretend to be adventurers undertaking a task of near-certain death or see their town and loved ones destroyed. Armed only with salvaged equipment, second-hand knowledge, and a secret that could get them killed, it will take all manner of miracles if they hope to pull off their charade. And even if they succeed, the deadliest part of their journey may well be what awaits them at its end.So far, I've listened to only 1hr (out of 7hrs) of the story, so about 20%. The story fits loosely into the WoW universe, except that horde (orc) and alliance (human male, human female and gnome) are working together.. Wait, I know this party... I rescued them in Zul'Farak the other day on a cloth run, then they turned on me.
