Buck-A-Batch: Magic Wear I $1.00
Publisher: Creation's Edge Games

As with the other Buck-a-Batch files I've purchased, the quality of ideas runs the gamut from boring to original and interesting.

Cons:

  1. Lousy game mechanics. Too often there are no DC's given for an item's ability. Most items do not specify the type of action (standard, free) needed to activate them. Also, the pricing seems pretty out-of-whack, with several items actually cheaper than less powerful items in the DMG.
  2. 50 items? There's some repetition among the items, though much less than in some of the other pdf's by this company. For instance, instead of listing five individual Belts of Resistance (one for each element), just list one and specify that it functions against only one element.

Pros:

  1. Ideas. The author seems to be very weak on mechanics, but is strong on flavor. There are some good items in here. I especially liked the Boots of Light Step.
  2. Value. At a dollar, I just can't knock this product too much. If I can work just a half-dozen of the better items into my campaign, I'll have gotten more than my money's worth. <br><br><b>LIKED</b>: Some of the items are original and useful.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Weak game mechanics.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
