The Great Dale Campaign Guide has been available on the DM’s Guild for a little over a month now and I’m quite pleased by how it’s been received thus far.
We were lucky to have Brandes Stoddard of tribality.com write a balanced and comprehensive REVIEW of the production. We received a 7.9/10, with high marks for our Settting and Monsters
- “On material alone, this is a substantial work.”
- “The setting material in this book sheds a lot of the cruft and gets to the good stuff.”
- “…the setting material is strong, evocative, and feels immediately usable…”
- “…the Great Dale does have connections to other parts of the Realms, but they’re minor enough that this is a great entry point to the Forgotten Realms, especially if you love the Mirkwood. If you don’t care one way or the other about the Realms, this is still a good contained setting with a lot of conflict and room for heroics.”
One of the challenges in pulling together a book of this nature is that our content targets a variety of different D&D consumers. We have exciting character build options for players who like to experiment with new and intriguing options, we have a ton of NPCs and new monsters that DM’s can drop into their home games, plus we have a comprehensive description of the lands and lore of the Great Dale region.
But does everyone want all of this content? What if a DM is only interested in reading about the lands and lore of the region and has no interest in new Player Options? Are they willing to pay the full price for the complete campaign guide when they are only interested in 1/3 of its content?
As such, I’ve decided to offer extracts of the Great Dale Campaign Guide that are focused on these different aspects of the game. You can now purchase Great Dale content focused on specific content at a more affordable price point.
Now available for purchase are:
The Great Dale – Lands and Lore: An extract of chapters 6,7,8,9, and 11, all of which are focused on describing the region and the lore surrounding it.
The Great Dale – Creature Codex: An extract of chapter 10, showcasing a collection of new NPC’s and Creatures from the Great Dale.
The Great Dale – Character Options: An extract of chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, offering a wealth of new character options for players to experiment with in their home games.
