The expansions for Blackstone Fortress are being sold at ridiculous prices all over eBay and even scalped here on Amazon. However, there is a solution!
This little book has several quests in it as well as retinue characters. Buy or sub in some new models and you have a whole series of one-off adventures! In addition there is a great set of tables for folks further along that sets up Precipice as a location a bit better than just visiting your ships for loot.
So this is a collection of short stories centred around the Blackstone Fortress. In some regards it is a sequel to the novel by that name. In other regards they are spinn-offs and expansions to characters and fractions featured in the specialists tabletop game. Unfortunately I feel that many of the stories are there to showcase what is available from the game, not so much revolutionize or turn the setting around on its head. It's limited to "Okay these models are what you can paint and play with. The story won't affect your roleplaying session". But outside of that limitation I enjoyed most of them.
This collection of short stories does a good job of retaining the feel of the preceding novel 'Blackstone Fortress'. Whether that in itself is a good thing might be up for debate.
It's still surprising that after about 800 pages of books, and the materials from the game and its three expansions, we know basically nothing about the titular Fortress - by which I mean really basic stuff like what it looks like; what overall form it takes (it's clearly much larger than the six Fortresses we've seen before, but beyond that... nothing).
There are some interesting implications in some of the stories which should be extremely important to the grander narrative of the setting, but which aren't expanded upon, and in all likelihood never will be (like the Mechanicus presence!)
If you didn't mind the slightly off-kilter feel of Hinks' 'Blackstone Fortress' novel there's some fun to be had here, but don't expect to learn anything much about the setting.
