WotC earning cash,
This review is from: Player's Handbook 3: Dungeons & Dragons Core Rulebook (4th Edition D&d) (Hardcover)
For a rule book its nicely made. Everything seem to keep the same quality as the rest of WotC DnD4E stuff. This is positive. However the context is vague at best. New classes and Races are introduced as always. This time they simply seem far fetched like a living Construct of Crystal. Of course minotaurs are in for the ride - Since DL back in the 80ties introduced Minos are players the creature have always popped up from time to time. But we are not talking about the sailing seamen of Krynn. These are the monsters made playable.
Classes are specific to Psyonic so if you like playing a mentalist (which IronCrown called their version and which seem more fitting) then this book is for you.
Items, abities and soforth are made in the book for use with the book in other words the powers are focusing on Psy-stuff mostly.
Is it usable - well yes as much as PHB1 and 2 actually, if you feel the need for this 4th power type.
Personally I wont ever use it in games I play but at least I bought it and supported WotC money machine that way - so that way WotC wont mind a bad review.
It got 2 stars : well I dont hate the product (which is 1 star) I just simply feel its a waste of money and honestly if I was the author I would be a bit ashame sending such a thin product on the market, but still quality of the product interms of paper/picture/layout is nice and in line with DnD4E.
