This is the BASH! equivalent of purchasing the first 3 AD&D hard backs plus Oriental Adventures! [Remember pre-'89 AD&D? This book captures that spirit.] The only drawback is that some knowledge of the genre is presupposed. The typical monsters covered in the OGL are statted here but not given descriptions, so new players and GMs could be thrown off a bit. Don't look for fancy art here either, but then again first generation rpgs didn't have much of it, and Basic Action Games doesn't need to pass the cost of commissioned art on to the consumer. A well-formatted printer-friendly version is included.
