The Forgotten Realms Atlas (2e)
by Jeff G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/22/2014 06:26:56
The Forgotten Realms Atlas (2e) This was once one of my most treasured gaming books. It had a wealth of information and it was easy to 'follow along' with many of the novels released about the wild frontier of D&D that was Forgotten Realms. I had already read the bulk of those novels when I got this tome, and it was easy to go back and see where the events of note happened. The scan is really clean, almost looks like it was from an original digital source though the era this book is from makes that unlikely. If the fact that I've rated this poorly for a title that shows so much nostalgia for me is confusing, there is a serious issue with this product that significantly aggravates me. Because of the way "Two Page" mode works with PDF readers, the publisher and/or producers of this product needed to add an extra page to offset the cover scan. They failed to do this. Thus on every map that was meant to be spread across the spine of the book, are seperated from their proper page siblings. This sounds like a...

Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (3e)

Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (3e) This is not a review of the source material, but of the quality of the pdf. The resolution of all the pages is very good. The images look brilliant (like you had the hardcover in hands) and all texts are readable. Not only that, the document is completely searchable, which is a must have for PDFs as I see it. On the downside there are only thumbnails for the first two chapters in my download. I guess this will change in later releases, but for now that takes away the 5th star of my rating. Another star is subtracted for the lack of links in the document. I don't expect a fully linked document, but links from the Table of Contents to the different chapters of the book would be enough to make this book a lot more useable and thus earn another star. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase. To earn a full 5 star rating, some "modern" pdf features are still missing....

Player's Secrets of Binsada (2e)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/13/2014 10:16:18
Player's Secrets of Binsada (2e) Of all the realms in the Birthright world of Cerilia, Binsada is one of the most fascinating - not least because it is ruled by a female line that goes back centuries. A player representing Binsada in a classic Birthright game will need to play a female character if they wish to be the ruler, although advisors and courtiers can be of either gender as the player chooses. Prospective queens will need courage, determination and a flair for the dramatic to win their realm over. The work starts with the High Priest's Exhortation, addressed to that would-be queen (but fascinating and useful to anyone wishing to exert influence in Binsada, of course). He has a startling secret to reveal, and also makes it plain that he wants to see the spread of worship of his deity, Leira, even more than he'd like the realm to flourish and grow! Fortunately, he claims that Leira has told him that Binsada and her Queen are destined to rule Cerilia... Next comes the history of Binsada, grown out of nomad...

D&D Rules Compendium (4e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/12/2014 17:29:36
D&D Rules Compendium (4e) Quick warning: this has no player facing content. That said, if you want a good reference of all of 4e's rule, it's perfect. Came in handy more than once.

Ravenloft Campaign Setting, Revised, Boxed Set (2e)
by Brett D.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/12/2014 07:34:45
Ravenloft Campaign Setting, Revised, Boxed Set (2e) Nice books, but the conversion to PDF is extremely lacking. The cards were scanned by placing nine cards at a time on a scanner bed. As such, there's no common alignment. If someone wanted to trim and use these, it'd be a mess. Maybe re-scan and offer these with DTRPG's card POD service I've heard about? The maps were provided as pages for each 'tile' of the map instead of a single big page for each map. Very hard to navigate. (I thought it was only one map at first, actually.) The poster art piece is just nonexistent....

Birthright: Book of Priestcraft (2e)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/05/2014 12:46:33
Birthright: Book of Priestcraft (2e) Never mind the Birthright setting, if you want to play a Priest character as more than a healing machine who casts spells (never mind that they're divine in origin rather than arcane) and can fight a bit, this is worth a look. If you are playing Birthright, all the better... let your Priest take a full part in the intrigue and manoeuvering that is part and parcel of this unique game. It starts with a thorough review of the different gods in the pantheon of Cerilia. Your chosen deity need never again be merely a name on your character sheet... you will know all about him or her, understand the organisation of that deity's church and know the festivals and rituals, and if you are playing a priest or a paladin you know what you need to do and what powers you get. So even if you are merely a devout individual rather than one of the 'professionally' religious, the bits about the deity and the church are worth reading! It's really all quite fascinating. There's enough here to fuel many...

N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God (1e)
by Martin K.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/04/2014 14:08:29
N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God (1e) One of the best modules for AD&D. It's not just a location with a flimsy justification for the players to explore at their leasure, but actually provides a solid background for why the PCs went there in the first place and what they want to accomplish, as well as providing an explaination why there inhabitants live in the place as they do.

GAZ4 The Kingdom of Ierendi (Basic)

GAZ4 The Kingdom of Ierendi (Basic) When the map issue is fixed I will raise my rating. I love the gazatteer series. While Ierendi feels a bit weird, it is still a worthwile addition to the series. However, the map is an integral part of this module.

D&D Basic Set - DM's Rulebook (BECMI ed.) (Basic)
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/30/2014 13:17:59
D&D Basic Set - DM's Rulebook (BECMI ed.) (Basic) The scan of the DM book is pretty good. Prints out well. Quite clear; and cheap at £2.94. I tried finding the error that was mentioned, but couldn't seem to find it ( I might be reading it wrong). Wizards: PDFs of the Expert, Companion, master, etc WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. You've done a good scan of the basic set; get the others done (or is it too much to ask for?).

D&D Expert Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic)
by Christina F.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/16/2014 04:52:02
D&D Expert Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic) This is an excellent product, and a great follow on from the basic version. I first picked up the Easy to Master (Black Box) edition of D&D in 1991, and followed that up with the Rules Cyclopedia, but I really like seeing how the rules of the system have evolved over time. Obviously, this product gets only 4/5, since it is not perfect by any means, especially when compared to today's standard. However, it does give an immense insight in to just how far D&D has come over the past 40 years. Hopefully, the other rulebooks will also be added here in the future. I am curious to see exactly what the Companion and Master sets added, even though I believe these were released under the BECMI revisions, but I much prefer the single book format of B/X ed. for some reason......

Dark Sun Campaign Setting (4e)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/15/2014 11:25:54
Dark Sun Campaign Setting (4e) The Introduction jumps right in, explaining what is unique about the Dark Sun setting. Athas is a dying world, where mere survival is a constant battle... and where any sensible person would concentrate on creating a stable sustainable environment, 'heroes' of course prefer to seek glory. The differences between Athas and more conventional fantasy settings is encapsulated in the Eight Characteristics of Athas - it's a desert planet, most people living there are pretty unpleasant selfish types, metal is scarce, arcane magic caused a lot of the current problems and still does damage if you try to use it, long-lived sorcerer-kings rule city-states as the main centres of power, deities seem to have lost interest in the place, the monsters are deadly, and even 'familiar' races are not quite what one would expect. Handy thumb-nail sketch, which makes me wonder if I actually want to visit... well, I do like deserts! There's a note about the original Dark Sun - published in 1991 by TSR using t...

C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness (1e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/04/2014 20:20:08
C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness (1e) Worth owning for 1'st ed enthusiasts and Greyhawk completists. It's set in the Duchy of Urnst, and the shadow instigator, "The Seer" played a large part in the backstory of the unfinished "Absolute Power" series by Erik Mona in the Living Greyhawk scenarios (unavailable through official means). The scan is good quality.

Circle of Darkness (2e)
by David L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 06/27/2014 09:42:32
Circle of Darkness (2e) So close and then falls apart at the end. The good: I have always found Yagno one of the worst darklords. He always struck me as an idiot darklord who probably spent his days eating his own feces. This adventure changed that making him an interesting, complex and almost sympathetic villain. The adventure managed to keep Yagno from either of the two most common evil cleric tropes: insane madman or political opportunist. G'henna may not be the scariest domain, but it is possibly the most unsettling domain, since it represents a collective madness. The encounters in the city include a lot of interesting roleplaying challenges like how the players will handle people willingly starving themselves to death. The adventure manages to double as a sourcebook for G'henna without sacrificing any pages of the adventure. Rather than using heavy handed tactics to force the players through encounters like a lot of second edition adventures, the module simply gives the players the ro...

Dark of the Moon (2e)
by David L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 06/27/2014 09:07:31
Dark of the Moon (2e) An adventure that both misuses a good darklord and shows some of the worst tendencies of ravenloft adventures. the good: the use of inclement weather is extremely well done (even if the rules have to be heavily modified in order to use it In non-2nd edition). In fact the inclement weather is so well done that if they had made it the focus rather than the werewolves this adventure might have been an all time great. Some of the encounters while the players are in the head village are moderately interesting. the bad: They take a villain and domain and fast forward it 18+ years for the sole purpose of stripping the interesting parts off the villain and turning him into a generic mustache twirling nemesis. Like a lot of Ravenloft adventures (the created, adams wrath, hour of the knife among others) this adventure uses heavy handed tactics to force the players into certain encounters. Modern day players are far more likely to get angry at the tactics rather than enjoy the advent...
