Any other company would be charging at least $20 for such excellent content. It evokes sense of wonder without being "gonzo," conjuring a sense of myth and a sort of "Fey wilderness/woodland" setting with interesting situations and encounters, mini-sceearios, fascinating characters and ambience.

A lot of RPG products offer encounters and settings, but all too often they feel like they're from a generic fantasy land. This product drips with atmosphere; the author doesn't just develop generic situations -- he is immensely creative and gifted at creating places that burst with story potential.

I was so pleased that I purchased all the available Rosethrone products and will be keeping an eye out for anything else from the same company.

I have a difficult time understanding why anyone would rate this lower than 4 stars, or, honestly, 5.

  1. The layout and art are professional and evocative.
  2. The writing is top-notch. When describing mechanics, it's crystal clear. When it's describing the setting, it skillfully conjures a strange new world.
  3. The sandbox construction mechanics are amazing and among the very best available. It's possible to buy this product for that purpose alone, because of their utility for any fantasy role-playing game… 4…. but the setting is top-notch as well, supplying a good reason for western and eastern hero archetypes to journey together. There are plenty of foes large and small, some intended for one-shot scenarios, and some for the long term campaign, including some great mysteries. It just begs to be played.

Kevin Crawford's work sets a very high bar. Highly, highly recommended.
