Sorry to hear of your disappointment - I have just had your comment shown to me. No - no not a rip off. 'The Blooding' was a promo section of the main book Master of War - which as you would have seen from the full book itself was a very generous portion of the book, almost a 1/3rd in fact. And for 29 p rather good value I would have thought.
