What I like about this series is that it does offer a bit of variety to magical treasure and gives some good ideas for new items. Also, at a $1 each, you really can't complain too much. Still, there is a lot of repetition as item types are just repeated.

As with this all of these I have seen so far, this product is decent with a large volume of "duplicate" items with only slightly varying abilities. It's not strictly true that the product contains 50 new itmes. It's more like 15 - 20 with most of the others being almost identical with slightly different abilities.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: A reasonable amount of fresh ideas for $1. At best, the product sparked an idea of my own, at which point I wrote a completely original item based only loosely on the one in the product.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Many of the items are weak. Only a handful are truly original. Most of them are basically duplicates with effects differing only on the element of the effect, the type of creature it affects, etc...<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

I bought a bunch of these (most if not all) and like them quite a bit. I'm always on the lookout for interesting magic items that are well made. These fit the bill well. Very reasonably priced as well. <br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Great value for the price. It's nice to not have my players immediately recognize the items the just found or werer awarded. What DM can't identify with that? Clever stuff

Hm. A lot more brittle gems, 14 or so.

The Molten Coin gives no way in the rules that characters might "possibly losses [sic] a hand". I like the idea of the rest of the coins. The decanters are all right in general, but I absoutely hate the Decanter of Potion Purchasing, where you put in twice the potions market value for a dose of potion. That would have no place in my campaign, but it might work for others.

The search glasses from Magic Items I are mentioned here. That particular oversight seems to be a failure of editing. The Stone-view glasses seem more complicated than they need to be for distance and thickness to be seen through.

The Orbs are a good idea, but I'm not sure that permanently fusing it to the character is so great, but wishes, miracles, and divine intervention are rare enough in my campaigns that I change most magic items that require such things to be removed to require a remove curse with a varying caster level check.

The Sonic orb seems underpriced compared to the others (i.e. the same price) considering the very few creatures that have sonic resistance. The pricing of elements is by the book, it's just a personal preference.

This series is a very good value.

Lots of good stuff! A good resource for those DMs who need that something different without having to really work at it!

A LOT of great ideas for gaming for the buck! Great addition to any GM's library.
