I like the book.


I had my review eaten by the Post Monster, so I will try again. I like the basic concept of the book. I was a little frustrated by the layout of the Table of Contents when trying to find particular subjects. Maybe it was just my initial read of the book that caused that though. Basically, I found some interesting sections on Background story that could be used by both my gaming group and in my creation of my PF Society PC's. Just my 2 cp.

PC Pearls: A Collection of Character Inspiration


PC Pearls is amazing!

I got my pre-orderd copy from Paizo last Friday. It's full of both unusual and serious advice, with sprinklings of levity that caught me off guard and had me laughing out loud. The cover art is gorgeous and the inner art adds spice to the text. The Lord Bedlam Havok section and insets are hysterical - worth the price of the book by themselves.

I just ordered five more hard copies as gifts for gamer friends and relatives, one serving in Korea. I've also purchased the PDF to make copies for my own group. What an inexpensive way for the GM to spice up play.

You gotta' get your hands on a copy.

A Treat for the Senses


The writers who brought us GM Gems have done it again. This book is simply fantastic. It draws you in, and you don't even want it to let go.

Okay, yes, I helped write it, BUT ...


By any standards, this book is really, REALLY good.

I wouldn't have been interested in working on it if the original GM Gems hadn't been one of my most obsessively-used books, and I certainly, CERTAINLY feel that the sequel (with a few little nudges on my part!) is even better.

This is a fantastic book - and though I may be the first to say it, it's only because I already own a copy. I most certainly won't be the LAST to say it. Gift Certificates
