Re: Kickstarters

The guy is an ass. I am, by no means, a delusional fanboy. I have been (fairly) critical of past releases and continue to do so. My history of various reviews on my blog a testament to this.

Re: Black Libram of Naratus VS HH Players guide

From what I remember presentation is a tad different but content is pretty much the same. So much so that I parted with my physical copy of the Black Libram.

Re: Kickstarters

Well, the Trolls royally screwed up with the print version of Victorious. Amateur editing mistakes. Mistakes I submitted myself for correction.

Re: Reading through the Epic Level Play PDF...

The nice thing is you can hand this and not the whole CKG to a player at the table during creation or leveling. Exactly... it's also great for the player who just has the PHB but doesn't want to invest in the CKG. The only downside is that it really is just for epic stuff and I haven't heard of any...
