I often find that homebrew content can sometimes rub up harshly against the design philosophies of 5e, namely being an overall easy-to-understand system that gives the DM tools to easily adjudicate a player's unique approaches to the game without having to trudge through a rulebook. Balduran's, on the other hand, cooperates with this philosophy, and feels as natural an extension to the game as if it was in the DMG from the start. In essence, this documents offers the rules and scenarios to get players in the deep end of interesting encounters where the players not only understand the goal, context, and stakes, but often are the ones to establish these three, giving them a satisfying sense of impacting the world. This would be a welcome addition to any table that's looking to really get their hand's dirty with politics, warfare, and any other epic scale stories.
