I picked this up at GenCon. It’s a beautiful book. It’s also very detailed and full of great, dynamic encounters. I can also sum up its writing and play style with the following:
“The training wheels are off.”
While a new DM might feel overloaded, I love it. I’ve read up to page 45 and it feels like it already covers a dozen sessions of play or more. Great locations, supurb NPCs and lots of roleplaying opportunities. Nice relaxed writing style too. And how it’s not so much mission-based, but there’s obvious goals to achieve, the book presents them, then lets the players determine how to go about tackling any of them making it feel like they are in a lot of control, no railroad here.
I’m having too much fun reading it. I will certainly be running it, and once I do I must remember to write a full review.
Great work on this guys!
