Allow me to tell a brief story. Literally about half an hour before Anne sent me this to review, I had been doing a Let's Build video on my podcast - essentially where we have our followers vote on which two pop culture characters folks want to see us build as a D&D character. I was building Brigitte from Overwatch, and was massively stuck on how I would make her mace-flail-morningstar work. Low and behold, in Ghesh's Guide to Making Things there are all the tools I need.
Anne has put so much work into this masterpiece, and it is obvious from the minute you open it. You crack it open, and I can almost feel the energy in this piece thrumming through me as if you had discovered the secret customization station in a video game - and combined with Sapphyra's amazing cover art, Ghesh's is amazing. I immediatly found what I needed to complete Brigitte's weapon - the Grappling weapon enhancement - and then gut sucked into the book.
Anne - how do I say it - Anne is a true conniseur of what players want and what DMs need. She spent a year playtesting all the content in this sucker, that is how dedicated she was to making this whole thing work. In 38 pages you get so so much that people around the table have been craving for years. Overall, Ghesh's is a stunning job, and I tip my hat to one of the most talented creators I know and look up to. I am honored to award Ghesh's the Comics, Clerics, & Controllers Golden d20 Badge.
