I love all of the comodity card set ups.. they help jog your brain for materials and other items you come accross in the world... Also they have each volume separated into catagories with percentile rolls too...

VERY useful tool. These massive (but not TOO massive) charts allow you to tailor your more "mundane" finds and allow you to quickly furnish your areas with "stuff" without having to say, "ok, you search and find 6 silver pieces and a bunch of other non-valuable stuff". Now you can easily populate those not so important room and actually identify what all that "stuff" actually is! Hey, I didn't know terrycloth fetched that much gold? This was especially invaluable when populating the "blank" rooms in the old Gygax module, "In Search of the Unknown".

I am really not happy with this product at all. Based on the product description, which says that the cards "depict" various items, I expected illustrations. Instead, every "armor" card has the same picture (a fuzzy suit of plate mail), every "potion" card has the same picture, and so on. All that changes is the text. This is a big disappointment to me, and almost a complete waste of my $10 (bundle). Sorry to be harsh, but I did not get what I was expecting, based on the product description and lack of any available demo page.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The tables at the beginning might be useful.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The actual cards themselves, which are really the whole point of the product!<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Poor<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Ripped Off<br>

Chris, We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with the Commodity Cards products that you purchased from us. Based on your comments, we have removed the word 'depict' from our product descriptions as we never intended to imply that each item has individual artwork. We are sending you a free copy of the Gems & Minerals Bundle, which is the same value as the Commodity Cards Bundle. We hope that you enjoy our products, and want to keep you as a valued customer. Thank you, Coy Kissee & Geoff Habiger Tangent Games

I like this series ... it's very comprehensive and while I don't know how compatible it is with D20 (particuarly D&D), I find it's depth and thoroughness to be very good.

I printed them all off and have them as a great reference.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Thoroughness.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Not sure how keyed in they are with D&D source books.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

I'm actually going to post the same review for Commodity Cards 1 through 5 since I bought the bundle and have the same things to say about them:

The Commodity Card series makes it quite easy to generate "mundane" (and more realistic) treasure for players, which should make it harder for them to get too much treasure and encourage them to interact more with the fantasy world and NPCs. It's quite nice to have summary tables of the cards, which I think I'll use much more than the cards themselves. In addition, someone wanting to use the variety provided will probably have to do some research to find out what some of the products really are and how they get used, but some basic hints are provided for the esoteric items. Even if a DM wanted to change the values of some of the commodities, the list provides a good comparison of relative worth between commodities. Although there may not be much provided in terms of fantasy commodities, it wouldn't be hard for a DM to make some up and use the existing information to price it appropriately.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
