EN World Review – Amethyst: Evolution by D.E.M.

amethyst evo coverWell it’s Wednesday once again, and only one week to GenCon 2011, and you can almost feel the gaming community twitching in anticipation!  But as it is Wednesday once again, it is also the day for another installment of my review on EN World, and this week is no exception – impending convention or not!

This week I have had the opportunity to review the new Dungeons & Dragons 4E supplement for the Amethyst setting from Dias Ex Machina Games.  Last year I had the opportunity to do a pre-release review the main sourcebook for this 4E gaming experience, Amethyst: Foundation, in a two part review (Click here for Part 1 and Part 2). The book was frankly amazing, so it was with great anticipation that I awaited the release of this new supplement for the Amethyst setting – and it did not disappoint!

Review of Amethyst: Evolution by Dias Ex Machina

I am really impressed with what the author has done with the D&D 4E system by creating a setting which draws on both fantasy elements as well as science-fiction elements.  In some respects it remonds me of the Shadowrun universe, but here magic and science are not comrades-in-arms, but deadly rivals, fighting for supremacy over a post-apocalyptic planet Earth.  It is a unique vision of order versus chaos, and well worth exploring for any D&D group.

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
