I wrote a lengthy review of this author's other set of tables, the d30 DM Companion, which is a product I also highly recommend. As for this product, the d30 Sandbox Companion, LeBlanc has continued to implement his high standards for OSR supplements. It's 40% longer than the previous Companion, thoroughly hyperlinked, with table of contents and index, and makes efficient use of single die rolls to select a broad range of specific features at once.
The focus of the d30 DM Companion was below ground:
- quick character generation
- dungeon features
The focus of the d30 Sandbox Companion is above ground:
- adventure generator
- wilderness locations and locales
In each case there are multiple tables per section, with quick guides about which tables to use and when.
Together these two products are a solid package. Just a few rolls will get you seed thoughts that are sufficient for actual gameplay. In addition, you can quickly develop and solidify his suggestions via your imagination.
I look forward to the author's forthcoming d30 Creature Compendium.
