Glossy Hardcover Reviews

Before you drop that fifty bucks on the latest glossy hardcover from Wizards of the Coast, you might enjoy reading my reviews of some of the newer releases.  Be warned…. we go in for some serious analysis of design and content on this site.  If you want a paragraph and a few stars, go to Amazon.  If you want an in-depth assessment of what’s good and what’s bad, with reasons why, you’re in the right place.


Ghosts of Saltmarsh

Ghosts of Saltmarsh is an anthology collection of classic modules, much like Tales from the Yawning Portal, but with mandatory nautical flavor.  This article will discuss where the leaks can be found.

The Review
Eberron: Rising from the last war

Normally I wouldn’t review a book that I have neither bought nor read, nor intend to read.  This isn’t really a review of the book, but more a review of Eberron as a setting, with some dicussion of how to make something so different fit into D&D.

The Not Really A Review
Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes

Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes is a great book, and I’m very happy with my purchase. If you want more details than that, read on and decide whether you want your own copy.

The Review
Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

The first actual rules supplement for D&D 5th Edition, Xanathar’s Guide is essentially a set of fixes for oversights in the original rules.  There’s also some DMG-style material, but not much for players.
