What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank: A Fantasy Lover’s Food Guide on Kindle for $0.99

One of the elements in old school games that is often given short shrift is what people people eat.¬†Often this is because food and rations are used only mechanically rather than being integrated into the story. Krista D. Bell’s writer’s sourcebook¬†What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank: A Fantasy Lover’s Food Guide examines food and gives lots of details on the sort of details that can be readily included not only in novels and stories, but in old school campaigns as well. In the book she covers such things as how foods are preserved, how to prepare foodstuffs for traveling, and how to manage hospitality and logistics for large armed forces moving across land. Included in the book are a number of historical recipes for you to also try at home. The book is available on Kindle for $0.99 currently, but is also available in hardcover for $15.41.
