    The Good - Very fun mechanics, absolutely love the gambits. All the classes are recognizable adaptions from the 5E PHB but reimagined in a broken world. Easy and fast NPC / monster building system. Interesting races (called origins here) that give the player choice in crafting the unique creature they are. Great choices for art.

    The Neutral - No setting. By default this book is a collection how-to's not what-to's. As with the D&D core books no assumed or implied setting is the default. Rules are given for surviving and perservering in a broken world, not how the world broke. Zombies, robots, aliens and multiple other threats are all included within.

    The Bad - Really, really needs a few more editting passes. Numerous typos, a few mentioned but then not described gambits (think I counted 2).

    Super enjoy this supplemennt. The group I'm in has two alternating games currently encorporating these rules - a lighthearted 5E version of After the Bomb, and a more gritty zombie survival game.

    Game is very interesting, gave it a little shot and i love it. Just missing some of things in the books like smash hit for example would love a fix for that

    This is a great system for helping 5e players experience a different world and it is great. I am GM'ing a game and it is going well so far but I worry about the crafting and loot because it was rather confusing. Other than that, this is absolutely amazing.

    Here's a link to a longer review.

    Overall, I like Hellscapes. It's not a comprehensive post-apoc tool kit, but it provides some fun classes and other mechanics to make a memorable campaign. The folks at Scrivened have a real talent for re-engineering mechanics to fit different genres and for keeping those mechanics simple and fun. If you enjoy the way 5e plays and want an adaptation to the post-apocalyptic genre, Hellscapes is a good fit.

    While it is certainly not as polished as their other work, it lays a great foundation for Post-Apocalyptic activities and enemies. The crafting, scavenging and vehicle combat systems add unique flavor to any post-apocalyptic campaign.

    That being said, I do have some complaints, though they are minor complaints.

    1. I'm a little disappointed that there was not a re-skinning of the Monk class. An apocalyptic monk would have been a great addition to the spectacular array of classes and sub-classes Hellscapes already presented.
    2. The book felt a tad plain. The artwork that was there fit really well, but it would have been nice if the book had been presented more as a post-apocalyptic document you found, rather than just a plain text and pictures book.

    Overall this is a great product, and while it needs some tweaking in future expansions I think it's well worth the buy.

    While I don't think this is quite as polished as Scrivened's Hyperlanes book, I still think that this is a really compelling 5e supplemental. By building off of D&D 5e's rules, it allows you to play using rules that you already know while still bringing something new to the table. I'll be using this to create a Fantasy-Western setting.
