Ambitious and Interesting, good but not perfect

****( )

2 special notes:
1) I was given a reviewer copy for free. This did not influence my review.
2) I'm also a publisher, I look at this as though it were something in front of me to print and scored it based on that perspective.

The Good: Every specific piece has line art, the layout is top notch, and the cover is gorgeous. Several items stand out and pricing seems pretty legit on everything. My opinion on the items is mixed but that is to be expected in multi authored work. I will call out a few as superb like the bombardier beetle shield, the variable shield, the toy barding, the clarion flail, and the Gemini shirt sword were some of my favourites.
The Bad: I see no reason for a dragon to keep a lot of this stuff and I'm going to call out a complete lack of fluff. If you're going to name this The Dragon's hoard give me a short intro story or a 1 page introduction of any sort discussing why a dragon keeps weapons and armor for medium creatures. It's a nit pick but inject some fun... give me some foreplay before getting to business. I'm also rather confused by the choice to cite the authors on some work and not on others, it's a little distracting but irrelevant to the score.
The Ugly: To be blunt anyone who hangs on the Superstar forums is going to see some tropes from the past couple years sneak in. Windstriker style blade check (no less then 5 from the past couple years), assassin's crossbow of killing, blood blade for the blood god, they are all here. Mind you they have been done well but it doesn't change that they seem like rehashes of things I have seen before. I do see a problem with the darts that turn you into a lycanthrope being a balance issue, and one item clocks in at over 130k which is pretty much pointless as the wealth by level to achieve this is pretty much at the end of most games. On the other end of the scale we have few options for the lower levels where a lot of games live.
Overall Mostly those are nit picks and this is a very fine supplement falls between 3.5-4 stars so 4 stars. Nice work all round, I'd print it.
