Not very well edited. A proofreader would have done this thing some good. For example, on the very first page there is a line that reads ?Otter?s worries are not unfounded as the your party?? And later there is a sentence that reads ?Among the great and many magic items in invention?? and goes on in a really bad run-on sentence the rest of the paragraph. Stuff like that is throughout the booklet, and its kind of annoying. It?s weird that the product starts off with a section on plot devices before it even gets into the relics. I?m not sure what I?m supposed to do with this information.
Once it actually gets into the relics, however, things get better. The relics are interesting items. The author gives just enough information to make them unique while leaving out enough information so that the DM can tweek the description to suit his own story for the game. I don?t know if any of these things were actually playtested or anything, as some of them could potentially knock a game completely out of wack. But I guess it?s like any relic. The DM has to think before using it. This is not a product you can just flip through and grab a random item to use. You need to read it and think about how it will impact the game. There isn?t a lot of artwork, but the art there is works well with the product and the layout is clean.
<b>LIKED</b>: Nice selection of relics to use for story ideas.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: bad editing.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
