It's (Not) Just a Game
The second half of the mid-adventure interlude. I hope my writeup of book 4 is much shorter than book 3. Book 3 doesn't even involve that much stuff and it still took me, what, half of the story's current chapter count? Holy hell...

I picked apart quite a few game books for this section: minor articles forgotten by later books, linguistic notes, Paizo blog posts, message board threads, old 3.5 books that were never removed from canon despite WoTC's best efforts. I did the research here for sure.

Now we can get back to adventuring and maybe leave the next major plot pile for the end of book 4, no?
