Some of the Christmas gift cards people gave me went to gaming materials. The last of them arrived today:
At a glance, it's interesting. It should be a fun read and give me ideas for my own games. I don't generally use much of the fluff from game books, and with a 5e D&D book I don't need the stats exactly. But a well-written combination of stats and fluff can inspire me quite well. Plus I do like to see classic AD&D monsters turned into modern rules stats so I can see how current designers view what those powers should do in the current system.
It will be a good bedside reader to slowly get through. Or quickly, if it's as good as I've heard.
