Im very new to table top gaming in general, and im being forced to be the GM for my friends. this makes the job so much easier, and makes the campaign feel like an actual world. (thats the point right?) the only part i could have lived without were the extra prestige classes. it may just be me but i feel that the low templar is kinda stupid... well whatever, that isn't enough to keep this product from getting a five/five
This book does a lot of the thinking for you. There's plenty of detail about different races along with multiple ethnicity of humans, and a concise history, government, culture, and geography lesson about each area.
They cover deities, a timeline of events, and they have a calendar, all very neat touches to flesh out the world. If you want to have a very well-thought out world to play in, I would strongly urge you to pick it up.
Oh and there's a lovely map that comes with it to boot.
i love this one, i buy it when it was a brand new book, but i have doesn´tt read it yet... i love a lot of things, hate some others.
the bestiary part is great, the prestiges classes are good...
theres a lot of etnities for humans, but i also will love if came options for every one in here (i have to make my own, and there is not a description of what every human likes to do in theyre homelands)
