Hey! I did proof it. I'm just out of practice. Being a stay-at-home-mom isn't generally stimulating, grammatically speaking. If someone else wants to proof it, be my guest. I'm off to Mexico....

I think this should stay, though:

The sadist thing about Cityscape
This relatively minor typo changes the review from being about a book that just isn't written or put together well to one that was done that way intentionally, for the purpose of causing the reader pain. And that's a writing philosophy I can get behind. ;D
I'll definitely check out Sharn, though. I agree that a campaign set solely in one city would be fascinating, and well worth playing or running.
And I could use some more bland and uninspiring music.
