as I said in the review is was adverage, they just fail to take advantage of the delevery method.  It's basicaly a glorifed MM with standard FR area descriptions throwen in.  However, as I said in the reivew, I realy liked the few pages that explaned how too use the serpent villians in a campaign.  That brougt it to a 6/6, then I took 2.5 off for no maps.  J/k.  Though If it had maps I probaly would have given it a 4, maybe.

also I learned a new word...circumflex.

It seems like a expansion book that has just enough  to intrigue players, but not so much that they have to put a lot of money into R&D. The end result is sqeezing some more money out of gamers.
The Folly of youth is to think that intelligence is a subsitute for experience. The folly of age is to think that experience is a subsitute for intelligence.
