This book contains exciting new character builds and options that are thematically rooted to the Feywild, a wild and verdant plane of arcane splendor, full of dangerous and whimsical creatures. Characters who trace their origins or backgrounds to the Feywild gain access to unique feats, powers, and mechanics. The book explores what makes fey-themed characters so fun and distinct.

Nearly $30 seems a bit high in my opinion for this kind of resource. Wizards needs to look at a soft cover marketing strategy to bring down the cost on interesting but non essential products like this one. I might shell out $15 for something like this but 30 is much too high a price point for me.

  1. Seems like an interesting game. You're certainly right about 30 dollars perhaps being too high for a game though the guys need to make their money from somewhere if you know what I mean. Games like this are likely on a decline in sales as it is.

  2. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I've recently put out an ebook of my writing, called 'The New Death and others'. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story 'The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune' and HP Lovecraft's 'Under the Pyramids'.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please let me know your email, and what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy. You can email me (news@apolitical.info) or reply to this thread.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.

    Yours,
    James.

  4. But considering many people who would want this are 40 year old men who live with their parents they deffinetly have the cash to spare!
    (not to say all roleplayers are like that, I role play and I ain't like that but the stereotype existst for a reason!)
