Take on Magic Items
by Micah B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/05/2014 10:36:19
This is a set of 24 pretty unique magic items. Mr. Friesen writes about two paragraphs explaining the effects of each item. There isn't simply a +1 Damage fire sword. The items are interesting and many of them are quite humorous, and humor is what keeps your games worthwhile.

I love the Jellied Eyeballs.

If you like this set I recommend taking a look at "10+ Treasures" from Awful Good Games and my favorite item collection I've seen, "Unusual Magic Items" from Scavenger Studios.

Take on Establishments

Great for fleshing out urban environments and giving locations more character. Could have been longer...

A great set of treasures that conform to the Dungeon World theme very nicely, and provide helpful inspiration for creating your own.

It's ok but nothing to spectacular. If you want a few quick backdrops when you're caught short then you might want to reach for this.

Take on the Lower Depths
by James S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/29/2013 12:01:28
Take on the Lower Depths provides some great ground work for inclusion into an existing campaign, or starting one shot.

The attention to detail on the monsters is great, and I really like that each creature has defined instincts and tactics.

The Ghöl's seem appropriately nasty, and surely will provide a challenge to any adventurer's foolish enough to stand in their way.

My favorite monsters are the Ichtha-Gogs, and Mark Daniels's illustration of them is fantastic.

The locations & situations provide just enough detail to not be overpowering, and the associated custom moves really help flesh out the atmosphere of the scenes.

Overall Take on the Lower Depths is a solid supplement for Dungeon World, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to venture into the Lower Depths.

Take on Magic Items
by Sage L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/16/2012 18:53:34
The biggest strength of Take on Magic Items is that most of the magic items feel, well, magical. There are few straightforward bonuses and +1s, instead there are many interesting abilities that sound like they came directly from a folktale.

Most of the items are firmly grounded in what they do, not the specific mechanics, which is an added bonus. It's also part of what makes them feel magical, not like shopping items.

The items here are of a comfortable level of power: they're all open to interesting uses, but unlikely to make the person wielding them a demigod. They should be easy to fit into any game, and are brimming with opportunities for creative uses.

A few items fall a little short with mechanics that don't quite live up to the concept or unclear effects, but there's only a couple of those. The majority are clever and sound like something that adventurers would talk about around a tavern table.
