Summary

Haunted with the ever-present memory of watching his parents get devoured by bears as a child, and now losing his adopted father and mentor, Klaus Richter embarks on a voyage of self-discovery and booze. He finds so much more - and so much less.

Not the best, I’m disappointed

Had to turn it off an hour in. By no means as good as the other books. For me, the constant drumming on over “his member” was just crass, and certainly not on par with the funny and witty story lines/characters/one liners from the other series.

This one just isn’t my cup of tea. Sorry.

Bahahahaha this is an epic back story, I loved every second of it, wasn’t what I expected but I never know what to expect from Klaus Richter notorious rogue.
Definitely recommend, performance was great.

If you like Critical Failures, you'll like Klaus

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, this short story follows a familiar path familiar to those who have read Bevans pervious work. Take an oblivious, alcholic half elf and throw trouble at him. See him do whatever he can to find another drink and stumble through the world obliviously. it's a formula that works and doesn't really seem that formulaic in Bevan's case. it damn funny and cringy and good. this might be a good test to see if you like the relentlessly immature Bevan. I certainly do. the Author's and Dragons are enjoyable, but I will need to listen to the podcasts to understand how three completely self absorbed idiots survive in a party. I might have liked Brandon Thighmaster a little better, as it had more moments of bursting out laughing, but this one was pretty damn funny.

a terribly wonderful facepalm

Robert Bevan has created a hilariously cringe worthy character while Jonathon Sleep helps to bring this character alive. The Klaus encounter will have you shaking your head with a wtf smile of morbid curiosity while you read or listen to this story.

Hilarious! Thanks Bevan.

As a fan of Author's and Dragons podcast, this one (as the 3rd installment) was the least true to character, as Klaus was never QUITE this stupid in the actual game. Doesn't matter. I laughed until I had to wash snot out of my mustache. I'm also glad Bevan's evolved humor isn't ENTIRELY reliant on fisting jokes. I was a little worried after 5d6. The older school fart and dick jokes are better. Definitely worth checking out if toilet humor makes you laugh.

The Worst story and narrator choice of all the A&D

I am a huge fan of A&D podcast. Listened to every episode and fund Patreon. But never did I think Klaus was as stupid as this book portrays him. Yes he is a douche and selfish asshole, but not an inbred moron.
Then after years of hearing Robert voice Klaus, having Jonathan Sleep try to voice Klaus was horrible. Klaus went from a selfish badass to a pussy and moron. The voice choice alone be balled him and dropped his IQ by 100 points. Piss poor effort all around with this book.
Listen to Rick's book instead, Silas Kane Scroll shows how much of a badass Silas can be when a group is not holding back.

Not good

I am a fan of the Robert Bevan’s Creatures and Caverns. although I laughed out loud a hand full of times, I struggled to finish the story.

I like the author's other stories, but not this...

It goes from bad to worse. Like beating a dead horse with an unbalanced amount sick humor.

Bevan needs to update his humor

Of all the authors in the Authors and Dragons group, Bevan seems to be the only one stuck in continuing his fascination with butts. His shingles stories constantly go for the butt humor. Critical failures, I gave up on, because you can only hear the same joke so many times. This origin story seems to be the least like his character in the podcast. I love the way Robert plays Klaus. Not a fan of the way he writes him.

The narrator did a great job and did bring the story to life, gross as it was.
