Council Of Waterdeep

If the intention is to provide players with an easy way to glance and understand the council, then this is really a product that should shine on aesthetics. After all, it doesn't tell me anything I already know. Sadly, the font makes it hard to read, and the layout is quite jarring. The flavour text is a nice touch, but nothing you couldn't do yourself in a few minutes. The pictures aren't in the least uniform in style, which ordinarily wouldn't bother me, but once again this is a product selling you an aesthetic experience.

I appreciate the feedback, I had included a .docx version where the font could be edited to meet the users needs better, as well as change the overall data as some people's campaigns differed with who was on what. As for aesthetics, I again appreciate the feedback, it was something I threw together for my group when I could not otherwise find anything, and I decided since I couldn't find anything then others were likely in the same boat and may want to take a gander at what I made. It is available free of charge, so there is nothing required to look at it. If I were to do it again I would certainly make adjustments to the overall look and feel, though as we are in an altogether different campaign this isn't in the cards. Thank you again for the constructive feedback!

I wasn't sure what was in this, so I grabbed it and thought that I'd provide some explanation. It has five pages inside, each of which is an A4 full colour guide to one of the factions. Roughly equal space is given to art and text, so these pages are attractive but not hugely comprehensive. For example, the one for the Emerald Enclave is 317 words long. However, this is probably a good length for the players to take in, so that is good.

The front cover ostensibly depicts Waterdeep, but sadly it doesn't match the images or descriptions of the city found elsewhere. The art otherwise is good, with evocative images of Zhentarim crouching on rooftops and the like. The images of the NPCs are perhaps too small for the page size.

One thing to note is that the Lord's Alliance page lists Laeral Silverhand, not Dagult Neverember, so you'll not be able to use these until after the first council meeting. The file is also in PDF, and so you cannot alter them if needed; this means that I won't be able to use these, as I'll be using Peirgeron the Paladinson as the Open Lord in my campaign, but that's more my fault than the author's.

Recommended, but you'll probably want to hack the Lord's Alliance page to make it more useful.
