Top notch content! Lots of detail about creating a hexcrawl (including a variety of methods for some of the aspects of it), running your hexcrawl, and a useful discussion about hexcrawling from the players' perspective. The author even takes the time to make this product acknowledge the way 5E's official published content employs random encounters, and shows you how to mimic that style (if you prefer). And it's all well written, well formatted, and free from obvious typos too--the author has given lots of attention to detail. Strongly recommended!

Somebody went to the best Dungeon Masters Guide ever written, the first edition of AD&D and perfectly infused Hexcrawling into the 5e system. At least I'm assuming the AD&D incorperation... WHICH I LOVE! Great little guide usuable in any campaign milieu. If you are not doing this in your games you're missing out!

Well, I only paid $2 for this, and I feel that it is worth five stars for that price point.

The first section is a nice rules summary for navigating and getting lost, and even better than the rules were the commentary on when you should and should not push the exploratory parts of the game.

Similarly, the section on random encounters presents a nice system and again several very helpful comments on what you should and should not do with the system.

I think this file is probably well worth $3.00. More than that I would only give it 4 stars or so.

First part of the PDF felt like a bit of a re-tread of Out Of The Abyss, but perhaps that is necessary for completeness. I enjoyed the random tables at the back. Worth the $5.00 that I paid for it.
