White Wolf has once again shown that they are still at the top of their game. Compass of Terrestrial Directions Vol.1: The Scavenger Lands does a wonderful job of fleshing out the Confederation of Rivers. Whether it be the combat stats for the 7th legion of Lookshy, the often strange laws of Nexus; or the Mask of Winters’ brutal overthrow, occupation and pacification of the city state known as Thorns, it all has the same high level of polish and creativity, that is expected from a company such as White Wolf.
Storytellers and players alike find the information within Compass of Terrestrial Directions Vol.1: The Scavenger Lands, very useful: maps, city layouts, laws, customs, general knowledge, obscure knowledge, and how they treat the chosen of the sun is contained within its pages. Stats are also given for the various gods of the region, along with some of the odder things that call the scavenger lands home.
This book offers up wonderful ideas and plot points to be used in any campaign along with aiding storytellers with a plethora of well thought out settings that impose no restrictions on the imagination.
Keep it up White Wolf
I really liked this book and found it to be not only useful, but also a great read.
