Bits of Wilderness into the Wildwood is a new PDF by Table top Games. These people know how to make my life easy as a DM. They have books like this on all about descriptions. They are well written, well laid out, and even have art in them when the art really is not needed. But it is really nice to see. The book is not really designed to be print out in full, and this I find really creative. They have all the descriptions organized on cards that can be printed out making them even easier to use. I print out the cards and then paperclip the descriptions I want to use to the places in the adventure they are going to be used. This saves times, makes them easy to organize, and most importantly makes sure I do not forget to use. The book is also book marked and has a great index making it useable in different ways what ever works for the DM.
The idea behind the book is simple and genius at the same time. The whole Bits of series works off the same idea. Descriptions of rooms, cities, different places the players encounter can be a bit of a pain for some DMs. I know I especially have problems coming up with descriptions on the fly when the players decide to go somewhere that I really was not quite expecting them to go. And these are not just descriptions, but well thought out information about the place. The writing and images the words bring on are defiantly better then I could come up with and present a level of detail most people just do not have the time to do. This particular book covers places in the forest. It does do different types of forest but also does the weather and different seasons. There are also two basic types of descriptions one can find here. The first are bits and the second are shards. Bits are smaller descriptions a little easier to make use of and apply. Shards are bigger and longer and still easier to use but they describe a larger section and might need a bit of alteration if a particular part does not exactly fit.
It should be no surprise that I am giving this book a high rating. It does the job it set out to do very well. It does a job that no other book or company is really doing these days. And it is very useful for practically any DM. There is really not much more one could want from a book or from a company.
