That's fine with him, though; it means he gets to throw his beloved bombs.

The most common main ingredient in poke is yellow fin tuna, but this can be substituted with salmon, octopus, squid or any sushi grade white fish you might have available.
The story gives you a good feel for what towns and cities in Shadowfall are like. Although the citizens band together for safety from the undead that stalk the wilds of Shadowsfall, the citizens are also their own worst enemy, quarreling amongst themselves when not combating hosts of undead.
I enjoyed the story enough to read it through more than once.
I will be sure to come back to it as the other Shadowsfall Legends come out. The Shadowsfall Legends are shaping up to be high quality short stories. These compete with Paizo's Web Fiction for quality of author, story and characters. If you enjoy the web fiction, I highly recommend picking this story up.
Editing was top notch. I did not see any spelling, grammar or punctuation errors in the entire piece. I'm no fine critic of literature, but I greatly enjoyed this short story by Ed Greenwood. The idea of umbral kobolds tickles my fancy, especially one that still has a shop exclusively because people are too afraid of his bombs to run him out of town.
After reading the story, I immediately tried to figure out how to make this into a possible encounter for my players.
That said, there were some oddities in the text, such as areas where it was clear the kobold was speaking outloud, but the text wasn't in quotation marks. I quite enjoyed this, and I'm now trying to figure out how to throw a similar situation at my PCs :. Thank you Cheapy! Now I'm wondering if not using quotation marks is sometimes OK, especially if Itchy didn't notice any issue.
I think it's a DC 20 Will save to avoid being confused , as the spell, by thinking about the intricacies english language. I didn't notice any areas in the PDF of the story where someone was speaking and quotation marks weren't used. Glancing through the ePub, I found what you are talking about, Cheapy. One spot in the ePub where Kurdag didn't get quotation marks. I'll have to check it on my PDF at home I only have the epub on my ipod touch.
