I can tell the creator put a good amount of effort into this content. Between the playbook, the custom items, and the custom racial options, there is a good amount here for $1.99. My biggest frustration comes from no preview available for the playbook, and not much information on the class besides some basic flavor. I was looking for something like the Shade, but less combat focused (which I have found other options but was wondering what this one was like). There are some cool out of combat moves, but a lot of the moves are about adding damage, armor, weapons, etc. Which for some people is great, but not what I was looking for. So, might be exactly what you want, but I would have liked a way to have known that before I bought it. So yeah, a preview some of the moves blurred out to ensure they still had to buy it, or more explanation of specific mechanics in the description to give me a better idea before I buy.

Hello Madeline, I am sorry to hear the full-size preview did not contain enough details for you to make an informed decision before buying. It is not my intention to trick people into buying my products without them knowing what it is. As a result of your review I have included an extra page on the full-size preview that contains the rest of the starting moves in the hopes to better guide future customers. If you encounter any other of my products that do not have enough information for you to make a decision, don't hesitate to contact me through here or via email. Also, when there is a new product being worked on I usually post via Facebook, G+, and Tumblr about it and ask if anyone wants to give feedback on it before publishing it (which helps me polish the product and lets future customers take a peek at what is to come).

The Shade has everything a playbook needs. The class gives of an anime ninja feel, with a focus on stealth and supernatural powers. There’s a very short introduction followed by the class itself. Moves are good and varied, mostly using Dungeon World’s hold mechanic to give The Shade tactical options. I can see the dramatic tension rising on the tabletop – do I spend my hold to evade the guard, or do I try to take him out quickly to conserve it for a more critical time? The book also holds a few magical items, some more imaginative than others but all useful. The Shade is a good playbook, though it does not go beyond expectations it delivers a solid class.

Downloaded this today and have read through the playbook. Interesting class that, at first read, doesn't seem like it will be over powering to a DW game. Will have to see if I can work it in to my current DW game and give it a real test. The playbook is clear, easy to understand and once printed, the background does not over power the text (very nice). The cover really sets the mood for the character. The addition of the character specific magic items at the end are nice as well. Good job. As far as the character sheet goes.... well, it's barely functional, the type face is just WAY too small for me. Would really need to redesign this. Improve the use of the space you have. Lots of "dead" space on the first page, Stat blocks could be smaller to give even more space. The type size just doesn't cut it. An otherwise 4 star effort, I have to give it a 3.
