The entire book is a visual treat and a wonderful read. Each of the adventures is well thought out and presented with a plethora of accompanying content to further enhance both the DM and the players’ experiences. While the book is aimed at the more casual player, veterans will also find a lot to love here.

Honestly this is the type of 3rd party D&D content we need more of.
