full disclosure i won this in a contest but was planning on buying it anyway. I love to listen to their podcast and twitch streams so highly reccomend finding and listening to them. Critacademy is great for players and DMs both but caution NSFW due to swearing.
Now for the review
First off most if not all players love combat but as a dm you want to toss other things at them as well. This fits that perfectly. Gives you solid examples of encounters that utilize the players skills to solve problems and some are even useable in combat.
Each example is given a difficulty that has to have so many success before so many failures. Depending on the result there is good and/or bad things that happen. All of the examples have a great flavor to them and can be tossed in any system with barely any modifications.
There is also fantastic ideas for unique terrain to add into combat so it livens it up some. These terrain pieces make it so either you want to stand near them or try to at least keep the enemy from standing near there maybe even move them into harmful ones.
Traps are included some as well that have fun ideas to them. These last two are a fun addition but not the main focus.
Overall grab this if you want to add something more to your game than just simple fighting or simple skill check to see if the noble likes your party enough to lend aid to mission filler #35.
