Presentation and Content
The book is a blast to read. The art and writing were both excellent, as expected. No complaints at all. The mechanics work well, and support the game's goals without becoming overbearing. Again, as expected.
For those of you who like hard copy, Kinkos will take the PDF file, print it out 4 pages to a sheet in landscape mode, cut it, add a vinyl cover (clear front, black back), and then wirebind the whole thing into a very nice and portable trade-paperback sized booklet for just about $8. Highly recommended.
I showed the booklet to one of the groups I normally game with. The overall reaction was quite positive. Most people thought it was a clever idea, and nearly everyone laughed as they were reading it over.
Surprisingly, the reactions I was anticipating were somewhat reversed. Several people who I thought would scoff and call it "gimmicky" were the ones who seemd to like it best. And similarly, several people I expected to enjoy it, both for the satire on D&D gaming and the Director Stance aspect, were the ones who panned it. In one case the somewhat condescending comment was:
Superb job. If all the games I ever bought were this quality, I'd own a far fewer number of them :smile:.[ This Message was edited by: DaR on 2001-08-01 22:44 ]
