5.0 out of 5 stars Hit's the Sweet Spot!, 19 Dec 2011

This review is from: Neverwinter Campaign Setting: A 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Supplement (4th Edition D&d) (Hardcover)
If you want something different from the usual kill monsters get xp/loot then this is a good guide. Many have complained that 4E has sucked the 'role playing' out of D&D, this adds it back in. By focusing on open ended storytelling/plot building and keeping it at the heroic tier Neverwinter is riddled with plot and RP opportunities. The decision to keep it to heroic tier (you can of course change this as you wish!) means that combat flows more smoothly and things are a bit more deadly. But that's not what makes Neverwinter unique.

It is the factions and various plotting elements trying to gain control of this once splendid, now ruined, city that makes it interesting. Is a local noble lord actually altruistic or is he imperialistic, are the new harpers there to preserve balance or gain control themselves? The moral ambiguity can be played up for extra plot layering or ineed can be played down if you want black and white 'kill the baddies' type games.

All in all it's packed with good stuff and worth buying, however I'd recommend that you either know faerun from previous editions/computer games or get the campaign guide as once you leave neverwinter you're essentially back in faerun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with detail and ideas, 21 Jan 2012

This review is from: Neverwinter Campaign Setting: A 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Supplement (4th Edition D&d) (Hardcover)
In the last year or so Wizards of the Coast have found a formula that works really well and this product is no exception. It is full of story ideas, places, NPCs and backgrounds. There are also a couple of chapters with player options. It is all well laid out and illustrated to a high standard.

I've you've not played Forgotten Realms before I think it is worth starting a campaign just to use this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to neverwinter, 24 Aug 2011

This review is from: Neverwinter Campaign Setting: A 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Supplement (4th Edition D&d) (Hardcover)
I have a fondness for the neverwinter setting that comes from playing the PC games as a youth and this book did not let me down. The content is good and interesting, most importantley the book is hard cover unlike the past few products that wizards have released. To me it feels like a return to form both in content and production value.
