The Goblin's Lair (Basic)
by Michael W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/29/2017 21:54:16

The pdf is broken (many pages render solid black or can't be rendered in several different pdf readers) and several pages are just blank or otherwise missing (easily 20 pages). The pages that are present are not good scans.

The Legend of Spelljammer (2e)

I've always liked this boxed set. Unfortunately the map, which is pretty critical to the overall campaign, is not included in this scan.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Daron F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/25/2017 00:51:38

Good things:

  • AWESOME concept. Exploring a sunken wizard's tower starting at the top is pretty sweet.
  • Interesting puzzles. Working them out triggered a lot of discussion and role-playing among my players.
  • Elemental and Magic Deities motif was cool. It was a great way for new players to learn some deity lore in a constructive way.

Meh things:

Lots of typos, errors, inconsistencies... generally difficult to follow.

  • I would have liked to see an explicit statement of agenda for the traps and the elemental phrases puzzle. I had to flip back and forth multiple times to understand what was going on.
  • A lot of the information was scattered and took a very long time to properly prepare the module in a faithful way.
  • The interaction with Hsing for the extra Harper renown is very awkward for players that have not encountered him yet, the only opportunity of which is "The Black Road". If you had the foresight, you could introdice Hsing in "Uninvited Guests" when the party asks Azam to attend the feast. What I ended up doing was having Azam sitting with Raggnar when detailing the mission and describing Hsing for the players.
  • Definitely seemed like this module assumed the characters would be in a totally different tier, and then hastily scaled back. Honestly, this probably would have done very well as a tier 2+ module, because there could have been more interesting magical effects in play, and the final encounter could have been more exciting.
  • The story award, Faction Copyist, is confusing, and honestly kind of bad. 10 downtime days for a single spell?

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Jesus M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/24/2017 13:00:57

Spoilers ahead: With two of the items that are able to be obtained in this adventure to get through the marsh, i don't understand why it was necessary to make checks to see if the party would get lost. It made no sense so didn't make my group do it. Which shortened this adventure greatly.

The Factol's Manifesto (2e)

Good book, but the scan is a bit light. Still readable, but you might have trouble on certain devices.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/22/2017 15:10:53

Soooooo many editing problems, so many errors, many skill checks for no reason. Here, make a skill check to understand what this runes say.... mod doesn't provide what the mod says.

Thieves' tool or Dispel Magic to open this door. So if the TIER 1 party has no rogue etc, you just stare at the door until a random Tier 2 character walks by with Dispel magic.

When you need half a page of "unofficial errata", you should know your mod has a problem.

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/22/2017 15:07:56

The story behind it is good and overall there is minimal editing problems.

The funny thing about this mod is that DDAL5-6 and DDAL 5-7 is suppose to be one single mod, split into two, and written by two different person. DDAL5-7 is so horribly written, editted, etc it makes it really hard to enjoy DDAL5-6 when it is played together.

Fantastic Locations: Fane of the Drow (3.5)
by William W. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/20/2017 22:33:08

(This review is for a print-on-demand copy of the book)

CONTENT - A solid set of four battle scenarios for four 4th level D&D 3.5 characters, set in the Underdark, and usable with both the RPG and the D&D Miniatures game. There's a small amount of background information and lore provided for each of the scenarios, and adventure hooks and further adventure suggestions for each of them as well. The NPCs are fleshed out well (Amandrucul is particularly nasty), and color text is well written. While it is short (17 pages), this product could open up a lot of opportunities for further adventures in the Underdark.

PRINT - The print-on-demand product is very good looking - the color cover is vibrant and not grainy, and the printing and artwork on the interior pages is clear even with the gray background graphics. The only issue with the print edition is the color maps, which look great, but do not come out to the proper scale for miniature use, and the binding prevents making color copies to scale up to the correct size. I'd recommend getting the PDF/print bundle and printing the map pages at a bigger scale in order to use them.

D&D Basic Set Rulebook (B/X ed.) (Basic)
by Miranda S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/20/2017 22:32:04

This is the rule book I had when I was a child. It's easy to understand, has great examples to help you on your way, and it's still good all these years later. I taught my kids using this book and they hve both designed their own dungeons from it. That meant the original was getting a bit tatty which is why it was so great to be able to buy an elecronic version!

The new scans are amazing. The cropping is fine, the maps are there, Bookmarks are present and the quality of the pages is just perfect.

The Factol's Manifesto (2e)
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/18/2017 18:02:30

The Factol's Manifesto is a great book expanding upon the main factions of the basic setting. It includes information on the leaders and abilities of the factions (new abilities gained as you move up in a faction) as well as their base of operations and ways of roleplaying a member. Additionally, each faction has a rumours section which can be used as a jump start to further adventures and all in all, the information contained is excellent.

However, the scan does need to be redone. Although readable, it is somewhat pixelated in some places. Some of the pages scanned in show the edge of the page as it was torn out of the original book which can be a little distracting, since this is a scan though it is understandable that it was going to look perfect.

All in all, I would recommend this product if you want more information on the main factions and can see your way past the imperfections of the scan.

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Dave Z. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/16/2017 18:00:33

I'm a little surprised by some of the low ratings for this adventure. It thought it was interesting, easy to run, and made sense. It may not be groundbreaking, but overall, I really liked it. I've certainly played and DMed much worse AL adventures.

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Jon E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/16/2017 14:33:40

More of a combat heavy module which is good as it lets players flex some muscle from time to time. The combat overall made sense and was fun to run. A really low level party could easily wipe if they aren't careful as some unfortunate rolls can cause pretty high spike damage in some encounters. The skill challenge was pretty average and basically came down to just rolling a dice and seeing what happens. If you have the right party member it is trivial and if you don't it is a little annoying.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Jon E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/16/2017 14:16:04

This was a hard adventure to run. A lot of times these products have skill checks built in to help players out but this mod didn't really include that. There is only one combat which is totally fine but it wasn't commenserate with the build up to get down there. The puzzles are pretty complex and rely on knowledge of deities that broders on minutia. Finally the spell book found and copying spells caused a pretty big fight amongst the players and what they could do with this when they have no players with spellbooks.

Next time I run this I would prep similar to a hardback chapter and not a DMs Guild adventure.
