Dungeon Master Guide, Revised (2e)
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/27/2016 20:52:09

I love 2nd Edition AD&D, so there is nothing wrong with the substance of the book. However, I really hate the revised edition. The art, layout, drab colors with glaring red titles and boxes, and general asthetics of the book don't compare at all to the original 1989 printing. I wish I could purchase a copy of that as a pdf.

OD&D Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-gods & Heroes (0e)
by Patrick U. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/26/2016 05:43:38

As with the previous reviews, it's too bad they had to edit out original contents for the rerelease. Todays' gamers are missing out on a lot of original content that us "old timers"were able to enjoy.

Pregen Characters: High Elf Fighter (5e)
by Jon L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2016 10:17:38

Of the pregen fighters WotC made, this one is better than the human. It has more interesting options and is better designed to be more effective in and out of combat. The character seems to be an arrogant high elf "gish" (fighter-mage) using the Eldritch Knight subclass and Sage background. You get to use melee and magic right from level 1.




  • Dex makes a good fighter, and getting to 20 quick is smart. I personally prefer more abjurations over evocations for Eldritch Knight spell choices, but at least you have Shield. I like Thunderwave and Darkness as well. Scorching Ray and Magic Missile aren't good choices IMO. Smart players will swap them out. Perhaps Find Familiar (or Protection from Good/Evil) and Gust of Wind would be better. An Eldritch Knight should be using spells for utility and battlefield control, not damage. You're a fighter. Get a longbow. Two attacks at +9, d8+5 are just about as good as scorching ray's three at +8, 2d6. Even the character's darts (two attacks, +9, d4+5) are only a little worse than Scorching Ray.




  • The character should be fun to roleplay, with that haughty, arrogant "Charisma is my dump stat" elf Sage sneer. It comes through in the character's Flaw, which should earn you a lot of Inspiration, if you play it well. Just criticize EVERYONE and EVERYTHING, often using polysyllabic words to sound smart and educated. It should be a blast! You're basically playing a Dragonlance elf :-)




  • Because they put this pregen out there, WOTC needs to clarify the common question about War Magic and whether you can use the attack before the cantrip. Luckily this build doesn't have Poison Spray. Though it SHOULD. Even if you can't use the attack first, this character could be using War Magic to be attacking and using Poison Spray every round (with forced disadvantage) against tough monsters.



  • Again, these WOTC pregens don't use feats, which is a little annoying, because this character should probably take a feat - War Caster comes to mind because it lets you use your shield and rapier and still cast. (The human fighter DEFINITELY should take a feat, but that's another issue.).

Pregen Characters: Human Fighter (5e)
by Jon L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2016 09:54:12

There are two pregen 5e fighters. This one is built to be a "leader of men" / "great tactician" concept. It uses the stock human and champion fighter, with the Soldier background. The other is a haughty, sneering high elf fighter with the eldritch knight subclass, and is more interesting and more effective than this one.


This fighter is not a very good contribution to the party unless your group is using Basic Rules Only characters, or not using Feats. Here are some of this fighter's drawbacks:




  • Dex is a terrible "dump stat" to take for a fighter. Especially a Champion. 9 Dex means poor Dexterity saves, low initiative, and poor Acrobatics. The Remarkable Athlete class feature is wasted because of the low Dex. If this character's Dex and Int were swapped, it would be better. I get that the idea is to make this character a "leader of men" type with History and Intimidation, with decent Int and good Cha to back them up.



  • At level 10, the character's damage output is low, with two attacks at 1d8+5. Using Splint Mail at level 10 seems odd, since plate would/should be affordable by then. Just using their swords, the elf has better damage output and only 1 lower AC (the elf can also cast Shield to temporarily boost their AC).

Dungeon Masters Guide (1e)
by William T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2016 01:25:14

This is a good-quality copy, but, as a nostalgic owner of print DMGs with both the Sutherland and Easley covers, I can't help but feel it would have been a more pleasing product with both original covers included (maybe as addenda), especially Sutherland's iconic wraparound artwork.


For those who had previously obtained scans from WotC, this IS a new scan , and is not missing p.175, as in earlier editions. Also, the ad on p.235 has been replaced with the TSR Wizard logo and p.237's product listing is now a Gygax Memorial Fund notice.


Other than that, the scan is clear and readable, and will be a worthwhile purchase for the nostalgic gamer or the devotee of the Old School experience.

B5 Horror on the Hill (Basic)
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/20/2016 11:35:55

Great pdf version of this module. I owned the hard copy 30 years ago and it got lost over the years. I bought this pdf version after trying to find other pdf versions online and failing to find a complete, good version of it.


This version is complete. It's even color on the cover and back cover, just like the old-school modules. Everything is included.


Overall, great version of this module. Definitely recommend, and it's easily converted to 5e. This is one of the best older modules. Fun for players and DMs.
