There is literally nothing in this document that could not be provided by your standard GM. Evernote could accomplish what this does, very easily and for free!

I came for the random encounter lists, and found blank entries for adding your own content. Actually, there is NO content here.. just provided organization, which has no interactivity or form fillable fields or anything.

For $1.99, I guess you get what you pay for... unimpressed.

Bleh! I have previously used the Superline Campaign Planner (by Ronin Arts, I believe) and while I was mostly happy with that product, I figured for $6, I could see if this product was superior and would better fit my needs.

...Couldn't have been more wrong.

Pages 7 - 23 (about 25% of the PDF) are all reserved for information on Archetypes. Seriously. I could understand a page or two, maybe even three pages dedicated to personal notes regarding archetypes (we CAN print more pages if we needed more, btw) but instead they chose to dedicate 16 pages to archetypes, many of them specific to Devil's Workshop Archetypes which, like many other potential buyers I might assume, don't own and have no intention of owning.

There is literally NO style to the lists, they look as though they were created on Word (or Open Office) and consist mostly of the blank lines with a Header at the top of the page. While I understand this is a campaign planner and artistic style isn't the primary design goal, it would've been nice to see something more than the same chart, page after page, only differentiated by the header.

Should they update this product (or Heaven forbid, make a sequel) how about a nice silohouette outline of a character so players might make a simple costume design, or injury location, or weapon storage???

Had they shown some innovation, ANY innovation, the grade would be better... But this is a derivative waste of $6.

There are a few pages and lists that I may find myself using in my campaign, but there isn't anything here that isn't presented better in the Ronin Arts Campaign Planner. I have no idea what the price for that product is now here at RPGNOW, but it is an infinitely better product.
