I can definitely tell love went into this adventure. I loved the descriptions of the goodbeasts. Fun and shows a silly side. The world itself definitely feels like Golden Treasure in trial of Darktooth and Allmother. However, there is definitely a lot of the spark of your own style that comes through in the descriptions of things, from the signs and the goodbeasts and occasional other side things.
I would love to see your work move in that direction more, though, obviously your focus on the elders meant you had to focus on characters, which meant you had to channel Ludwig's writing more. And, I think you did well in that respect!
Short but most certainly a treat!
