This is truly a ‘must have’ for any DM. I don’t drop that lightly on any product. This is the second game changing item I have received in the past month, and this is a game changer without a doubt. The addition of fantastic terrain to your game can not be easier. Justin & Co. have done a superb job of presenting something we didn’t know we NEEDED in our games and giving us easy ways to incorporate it.
Not only does this supplement present new challenges and boons to your party, but we are given just enough lore to create a game session for these magically infused pieces of real estate. As I read through this, I came up with at least (3) different sessions I want to run for my group, based off the lore of the terrain. Some of the penalties are so beautifully subtle that newer players will not understand just how bad it is to lose hit dice…until it is too late!
This supplement is a great addition to any game, but perhaps even more for a homebrew game as these are amazing locations to add to a growing world – locations that will have your party wanting to explore more, and perhaps being a bit hesitant to blunder wildly ahead after encountering one of the detrimental locales.
If you happen to have Unearthed Tips and Tricks: Vol I you have a great companion piece to Fantastic Terrain, as there are many synergistic ways to tie the various tips and ideas in UTT to FT.
Do yourself a favor and grab this; or perhaps make it a gift for your favorite DM – you’ll reap the rewards of an enhanced game with a tool like this in your DM’s hands!
