In some ways, this is the sort of setting I was looking for: Practical, and detailed where such is really helpful.
It's a small continent. There isn't something too special about it (no steam, no gunpowder, no science fiction); it's mostly a generic setting, but well done as such, good for traditional adventures - with a nice dose of information on various factions.
Settlements are very well presented, their particulars listed on tables besides common descriptive text. The part where all the taverns and inns on the continent are listed is too much in my opinion; those pages would have been better served with more settlements instead perhaps, but on the other hand these lists have their usefulness as well.
The part with the new creatures is good to have (I especially like the NPC types), but I'm disappointed that the statistics aren't always strictly correct (in some cases stats being assigned without adhering to proper calculations). It doesn't bother me much, though. Perhaps of more concern is that there are no pictures for the new monsters, but the publishers may provide us with those later. I hope.
And then something really bad... the maps. I can accept them being simple, basic CC3 maps, I'm perfectly OK with that. But some of the text is SO damn hard to read. Really, I'd be unable to use them properly if I didn't do some special editing of mine about it. It's because of the maps that I didn't give this a full five stars.
All in all, this was a good purchase. I, for one, am going to use this setting, despite its drawbacks. I hope you found this review useful.
