EN World Pre-Release Review – The Book of Vile Darkness by WotC

book of vile dark coverGreetings fellow D&D gamers!  I hope this week finds all my Readers well, and that your plans for the Holiday Season are shaping up to be happy ones!  Despite the rushing around we all experience this time of year, I’m trying my best to keep my game sessions going, even though roping everyone to the table for a few hours can sometimes be a real challenge.

This week, I’ve posted a new review over on EN World News, and I have to say, it’s quite a big deal!  As discussed in my short blog on Tuesday, this week I received a pre-release copy of The Book of Vile Darkness, and as promised, I have had a chance to read through this new supplement, and there is as fully detailed a review as I could write – nearly three-thousand words discussing the content of this new and exciting supplement for D&D 4E.

Pre-Release Review: The Book of Vile Darkness by Wizards of the Coast

While I have some misgivings about the presentation and the page count of this new supplement, I cannot deny that the author, Robert J. Schwalb, did an excellent job of tackling a wide range of topics dealing with adding a new level of evil to existing campaigns, or to actually running an “evil” campaign itself for your players.  He certainly impressed and inspired me, and I look forward to bringing a little more vileness to both my Dark Sun and Forgotten Realms campaigns!

I should note that the release of The Book of Vile Darkness is precipitous as the D&D movie by the same name is now in post-production.  Should be interesting to see what SyFy dishes up as a D&D-based movie inspired by a tome of pure unadulterated evil!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
