Top quality work

*****

This adventure is simply stunning. Al-Qadim was good. Desert of Desolation was good. This adventure takes everything that made those products great and blows it away.

Incredible work Paizo. Just incredible.

Wanted to see great quality

**( )( )( )

Unfortunately, I have to give this a less than stellar review. The main problems for me are the map that comes with the book not following some of the maps in the book (shapes of the landscape change dramatically?).

Also, in a couple of places, place names are spelled differently.

The writing quality is definitely there, but the cartography really needs a review.

High quality, worth the price

*****

Books of this quality do not come along very often. The writing and art is top notch, as well as the breadth and depth of material for DMs to use when running the adventure.

The characters vis-a-vis the setting may seem unnatural at times, but I suspect this is a Paizo convention to highlight the flavor of the campaign world.

GREAT Intro to the Pathfinder World!

*****

I thought this was an awesome product. For $13 bucks you get a LOT of flavor of the world of Golarion and get an extensive history to boot!

It also REALLY feels like an epic D&D world. The designers really put a lot of thought into the world to design it as realistic as possible while still being a D&D themepark. Great stuff!

Doesn't feel like D&D

**( )( )( )

The main complaint is the most important one: Dungeons & Dragons is more than just a rules system. D&D has a personality and for the most part, that personality has been shredded in this new edition.

Gone are the days when you felt like you were building a character. The new version of the game emphasizes mechanics and rules over story and roleplaying. In this version is more important to build an effective combat character than an interesting character.

This is sadly, not what D&D is supposed to be about. On its own, it's not a bad game, it's just not D&D.
