Minsc and Boo’s Journal of Villainy Review (Plus a List of all the Proofreading Issues)

I made a video review for it that you can access through the above embedded link or by going to https://youtu.be/Rfu8E3yqdLQ. Overall, I found that the book is good. But that doesn’t mean it was without its faults. The book really needed to flesh out the Cowled Wizards more. Them banning all arcane magic (whichContinue reading “Minsc and Boo’s Journal of Villainy Review (Plus a List of all the Proofreading Issues)”

Nerdarchy’s Out of the Box Encounters Review

Certainly my most disappointing purchase to date. The layout and presentation of the book is so underwhelming for a product of its cost (it costs $50 USD + shipping normally).  For instance, The book has encounters organized by the title of the encounter and not by difficulty or environment. Which could be fine. Except itContinue reading “Nerdarchy’s Out of the Box Encounters Review”

I reviewed all 700 spells in Kobold Press’s Deep Magic Book

I made a video review of the book that you can find here: https://youtu.be/rALWDbLCjQU  You can find a link to the Google document where I break down my thoughts on all its 700 (ish?) spells here https://docs.google.com/document/d/144rWx1Y6o9urLYi_41VkZkcdmymDzG7TLvi6GLa8Wc8/edit?usp=sharing The point of the document is not for people to read through it all (that would be asContinue reading “I reviewed all 700 spells in Kobold Press’s Deep Magic Book”

Friendly Arm Inn: The Friendliest Inn!

Review of Sources There really are only three sources for this. You’ve got the Baldur’s Gate 1 video game, which is where I think most people would know it from, and then you’ve got both Volo’s Guide to the Sword Coast and the 2nd edition campaign setting. The video game actually does a much moreContinue reading “Friendly Arm Inn: The Friendliest Inn!”

The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 3: Formatting Problems and Missing References)

Part One of this examination can be found here, while Part Two can be found here. Formatting Problems Not having an index really makes using the physical copy of this productContinue reading “The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 3: Formatting Problems and Missing References)”

The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 2: Spells and Spell Access)

Continuing onto spells. I thought I’d talk a bit about all the problems I found with spells and spell access in this book. Part One of this examination is here. Part Three is here. Spells The term “spellcasting level” is used in 4 different spells in this book however its not actually clarified what thisContinue reading “The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 2: Spells and Spell Access)”

The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 1: Races, Subclasses, and Feats)

I was originally going to make like a bunch of Youtube videos giving a breakdown and review for the Midgard Heroes Handbook. But I don’t really have an interest anymore. So that is why I randomly know so many of the problems in this book (I read it cover to cover a few months back).Continue reading “The Midgard Heroes Handbook is a Mess (Part 1: Races, Subclasses, and Feats)”

Luskan: Pirate Accents Are Welcome

I’m not sure there is any city in the Forgotten Realms setting that has changed as much as Luskan has. Perhaps Baldur’s Gate, which they’ve most recently decided, needs to be a gritty Gotham like place for some reason, but Luskan has probably changed even more than it. Because of this, the first place youContinue reading “Luskan: Pirate Accents Are Welcome”

Gullykin: A Halfling? Gnome? Human? Village

Review of Sources Surprisingly, Gullykin only makes it into two official sources. I wish more had been written about this small little halfling village. So often on the Sword Coast we see human settlements (or at least settlements found by humans). It’s so rare and such a treat to see somewhere not founded by humans.Continue reading “Gullykin: A Halfling? Gnome? Human? Village”
