I'm not going to write a long review this time around, I have other things that needs to be done right now, so this will have to make do

Eschalon: Book 1
Eschalon book 1 was quite a nice little game. It did in many ways remind me of the D&D-based games that were released during the mid 90's (but with a more intuitive rule system, AD&D was not the most intuitive or straight forward system around). The game was relatively short, clocking in at just shy of 9h, the first time around. There were a handful of sidequests left undone, but I did most of them.
Overall I thought the game was well made, the writing was good, the game system worked well and the music was fitting. I would have liked to see the same system & engine being used for a more tactical party based game, but it worked well for a single character game.
