That’s the best you could come up with? By comparison there are already neat little ideas in this product starting at page 5 where Mike has had the forethought to provide the player with some ideas for the basic classes in an urban environment.

Before I finish this chapter I would like to point out that the Secrecy section pg 84 – 85 has one of the most useless game mechanics I legenfs ever run across. Best Reads of the Week! It is well written and thought provoking.

The lgeends feats are either too nuanced to be used in a sandbox game which mine almost always are or just simply workz to be abused in ways that will make you regret buying this book.

Now I want to point out that in my last review, Dragons by AEGthat I didn’t come to anything useful in that book until page 10, and what I found was rather measly at best. Now normally when you come across a third party character class you hold your nose and tip-toe past it hoping that your players don’t dredge it up because they’re usually fucked; but unlike most of my previous experiences Mike Mearls is actually able to create two usable classes in this book: Of those last four pages only the spell Erad’s Silent Killer pg 35 is worthy of being included in an active game.

It is a common complaint where Mike Mearls is concerned that you will have to wade through some copious amounts of cow flotsam in order to get to the gems that he drops every two or three pages. And you follow up that brilliant moment by copying the officer career path onto the Ranger pg 10proclaiming that the Monk is a martial arts instructor pg.

The last part of this book is dedicated to Spells pg 35 and the dubious Urbanmancy Prestige Spells pg. And while we’re on the General Advise section let me just say that this section should have been at the beginning of the chapter with a fuller discussion of playing in the city environment and the proper mindset that you have to develop for the urban game.

The chapter begins with a quick explanation of the difference between an urban and wilderness environment. That’s the best we can do for those guys. Next we come to the inevitable Feats pg 11 section which manages not to provide me with anything new and should have been lumped into the General Advise pg.

The Speaker of the City pg 28 – 30 is outstanding. Lzirs is the real meat of the book with a detailed analysis of how a city comes together through a mindful conceptualization of the fantasy setting in its most basic sense.

I own seventeen monster manuals, tombs, and guides across a variety of systems and editions that now clutter up my gaming shelf — the vast It is a common complaint where Mike Mearls is concerned that you will have to wade through some copious amounts of cow flotsam.

The Cleric is a missionary pg 7 ; the Fighter an officer pg 8 ; the Bard a star of the stage pg. Looking For Something Special? The Great Blog Roll Call. Nothing creative or unique just some trite mess that we have to wade through and pretend like it’s all cool? This is the sort of chapter that can drive a man to make spread sheets.
