Thanks, Paizo...Damn you, Harmony Gold!

****( )

This is great -- getting a BTech module that has nothing to do with the Clans, or the FedCom or anything of the other novel innovations -- just classic, down 'n' dirty Succession-War-era BattleTech. Davion Forever!

The only thing that keeps this from being five stars is something that is not the fault of either Paizo or necessarily FanPro/FASA. Most of the art in the book has been excised to remove the "Unseen" BattleMechs (ones derived from the anime series Macross, Dougram and Crusher Joe)that FASA had licensed from Japan, due to the lawsuit brough by Harmony Gold who was angry that they weren't getting a piece of the pie.

Pretty good, but...

***( )( )

I liked this issue pretty well (I'm thinking of someday using the Robin Hood setting), but y'all didn't include the postermap of Nottinghamshire that is key to one of the articles in the issue...

Great magazine, and great maps (revised)

*****

The issue is pure gold -- Demogorgon AND a death knight for the PCs to face? I can't wait to put an unsuspecting party through that one. However, my one complaint was that the Greyhawk maps were originally scanned at too low a resolution -- they were near impossible to read or discern any of the locations smaller than the broadest regions, even when the magnification in Adobe is set to the highest I can put it without pixellating.

However, Paizo's recently fixed and now higher-resolution maps removes this complaint as the maps are now usable and readable. That bumped my review up to 5 stars. Thanks again for giving us the chance to have great digital versions of one of the most iconic worlds in D&D.


A thinking player's module...

***( )( )

but not in a completely good way. The idea is one that is intreguing -- a dungeon full of puzzles that reward brains rather than brawn -- but the execution makes the module run more like the SAT than D&D. I have not run this one with my group yet, and I'm not sure I would without severe modification -- with this many puzzles and math problems and logic problems, most players would probably get bored with the thing, leave the dungeon and tar and feather the DM long before getting to Lyzandred himself.

A long-needed e-tool for DMs.

*****

This is what every frustrated DM needs (especially one who can't map worth beans) -- a series of maps ready to be populated and placed anywhere you need a catacomb, evil temple or tomb where adventurers boldly go where no adventurer has... (I'd better stop, I hear lawyers being sharpened :) ). The price is excellent, and the functionality of the PDFs are eye-popping. You can literally strip the maps down to just the outlines of the dungeons if need be, or leave them blue-filled and stocked with items and trap locations. By all means, buy this download.
