    About " Keith Baker "

  • Keith Baker

    I ve been interested in games since I first fell under the sinister influence of the Dungeons Dragons boxed set, back in sixth grade Over the last few decades I have managed to turn gaming from a hobby into a career Here is a list of the highlights of my life as a game designer If you have any questions, let me know From 1994 2002, I fell into the computer games industry My first job was with Magnet Interactive Studios, in Washington DC Sadly, Magnet never managed to hit the big time as a game developer I worked on a number of projects during my stay at Magnet for a time I was lead designer on a game called BLUESTAR, a position that was held at other times by such roleplaying luminaries as Ken Rolston and Zeb Cook However, the only work that ever saw the light of day was some level design on the abstract arcade game Icebreaker.Magnet began a slow implosion in 1996, and along with a number of other people I went to work for a Colorado company called VR1 I started as lead designer on VR 1 Crossroads, a text based MUD centered on warring conspiracies The X Files meets Illuminati, with a world of dreams thrown in for good measure When VR1 decided to move away from text games, I started work on a graphical MMORPG based on the pulp serials After a few twists and turns, the project ended up being known as Lost Continents But early in 2002 I decided that I d had enough of the computer games industry and left VR1 to focus on writing Then in June of 2002, Wizards of the Coast announced their Fantasy Setting Search, and I thought What about pulp fantasy And the rest is history Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information.

  • The cover art is what got me interested in reading the book . The writing and characterisation of the many and varied peoples in the atory kept me reading . Thorn is a sympathetic protagonist .


  • Keith Baker returns to the game world of Eberron with the Queen of Stone. As the creator of the world, Baker obviously has ideas and plans for all aspects of the setting, and with the Queen of Stone he delves into one of the most fascinating and least developed countries there - Droaam, the land of monsters. While Galifar was distracted by it's 100 year civil war, monsters living on it's frontiers organized a brutal kingdom of creatures that normally wouldn't work together under the brutal leade [...]


  • I liked Thorn but on the other hand she had nothing special about her ((view spoiler)[apart from being a dragon,(hide spoiler)]but that happens in the end of the book and feels almost as an after thought or a "it's fate" solution to end the story).I like the setting (I have been is a Eberron DnD champaign for 2 years or so), but it's nice to get to know other parts of the world.I guess I noticed some little details that are an Eberron flavor, like the fact that there are 12 nations + 1 nations t [...]


  • The Queen of StoneThorn of BrelandThe medusa on the cover made me pick it up, but the writing sucked me in. The first three chapters are extremely well-done, and kept me guessing for quite some time. If you love strong female characters, this is a book for you.The main character is a super spy named Nyrielle Tam. Code name: Thorn. Picture OO7, except she’s a female half-elf who uses magic. Instead of all the technical gadgets that James Bond has, Thorn has magical items to help her on her secr [...]


  • It is a game fiction tie in, but not a terrible one. The beginning of the books weak, but a few chapters in it picks up and the writer seems to find his footing. It is apparently a follow up series, and unfortunately, it did not explain enough of the previous events to make the references to the previous events clear. The handling of the Queen of Stone character was very well done, as were a number of the interactions. I felt like character was obtuse at times to a frustrating degree, but that i [...]


  • This is one of the best Eberron books out there. It starts off a bit slows but more than makes up for it as the book goes on. The characterization of the inhabitants of Droaam was deep and engaging and really made you question the morality of the Five Nations and the necessity of wiping out the "evil" races of the world. At one point one of the Droaamites points out to a Brelander, "While you spent 100 years undoing the work of a kingdom that lasted a thousand, we created someting new." They nev [...]


  • I enjoy books set in the D&D or Ebarron worlds as long as they are well-written. It's not just the world that I like - the story and characters have to be engaging as well. I want a well-crafted story. Baker really built the world of Eberron, so he does a good job of fleshing it out on the written page, and this novel is pretty solid for what it is. It does start kind of chaotically, and the beginning was a little hard to follow. However, it does settle into a cohesive story that kept me int [...]


  • I think Baker does a nice job of creating some central characters that you can actually care about, which isn't easy when one is a medusa. Unfortunately, the book ends with way too many unanswered questions. I'm sure those questions are answered in the books that follow, but I would have liked a little more explanation at the end.Still, I did enjoy it, and it was a nice way to start off the new year.


  • This was a really good book. Not so many twists and turns or anything, but just a great story. Eberron was a great realm to base stories in, and I wish I could find a way to get others to play in something like it. Thorn is a great character with enough of a secret by the end, that I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.


  • It started pretty mediocre and finished the same. It was terrible but it was never particularly interesting nor original - about the only reason I finished it was the fact that it was short and I figured I may as well see it through to the end.


  • I was intrigued by the premise of the book wherein the lead gets involved in a monster-ruled nation within Eberron (a D&D campaign setting). Sadly it's full of lifeless, one-dimensional characters with a simplistic plot and just not worth reading.


  • Though it wasn't until recently that I even enjoyed fantasy, but the Eberron setting with it's mixture of science fiction and fantasy adds to the action packed scenes and big reveal of an evil even inside a kingdom of monsters. Good read but it really isn't going to win awards.


  • Excellent pacing, and Thorn has now become my favorite D&D character. Really focuses on what an Eberron story is really like.


  • Interesting and involved plot with wonderful characters that draws you into the story, again not predictable like so many other books
