This is an incredibly good collection. I've never seen anything quite like it, and that's too bad, because this is fantastic. DnD could use a lot more products like this, focused on different perspectives and on diversity and inclusion. I eagerly await further volumes.

The few criticisms I have are mostly pretty minimal, almost trivial. Some of the many scenarios presented are a bit linear and underdeveloped. Some of the scenarios are so dependent on specifics of the presented setting that they would be difficult to integrate into an ongoing campaign setting. A lot of them work better as one-shots or for the sort of campaign that involves an itenerant bunch of adventurers wandering from place to place, but that's not a bad thing at all.

Probably the most significant critique I have is that as written, a couple of the presented scenarios more or less play out with the characters being witnesses to events rather than the story being driven by the character choices. I personally feel that is pretty much the cardinal sin one can commit in game design. Stories which aren't ultimately driven by the characters and what they do are probably better left as short stories rather than roleplaying game scenarios.

None of this makes this collection any less wonderful, though. This is top-notch stuff, highly recommended.
