This product is very promising, with this preview full of highly detailed information of various towns. This information includes:
- The town map
- Important places
- Important figures
- Important events within the town
- Major issues faced by the town
- The history of the town
All discussed in depth. Each town segment should contain everything you ever need to know about the town, its people, and how it will interact with your adventurers.
Visually, the book is also extremely appealing. It has the faded, sepia pages of an old tome, with readable font, and detailed artwork. The way it is written truly paints a picture of the situation it discusses. It has the layout of most classic D&D books, without sacrificing much readability.
The only downside would be that there are some walls of text, which are inevitable when discussing things in depth. To combat this, the paragraphs are well spaced, with readable font, and images (where possible). There are some sections that may be difficult to read for those who struggle to concentrate. Many of the names are very complex to read/pronounce, which can make it harder to read, or much more difficult for those with conditions such as dyslexia.
Overall, however, I would say that this is truly worthy of a 5 star rating. It is detailed, readable, and contains everything you ever need to know bout locations, people, and situations. I look forward to the final product.
