The Octagon $6.96
Publisher: Encompass

Art & design are good, plothooks are available, inhabitants are nicely described.

As answer to the negative feedback from other reviewers Encompass has also within 24h released additional ink-saving battlemaps for each of their products, so this issue seems to be gone.

Reasons for not giving 5 stars are the missing basement and the fact that to me the wizard theme was too similar to Encompass' other product "Mad Wizards Tower". Also The Octagon has only 4 inhabitants (5 with familiar) which gives me a feeling of "emptiness" - to me a lost opportunity for providing more plothooks and room for intrigue as it was for example done in "Tendril's Oak Inn".

[4 of 5 Stars!]
