The art looks spectacular and the promotional video looks really well made. I recommend watching the video even if you're not going to invest in this.

I really like the design of the Dragonborn and the overall sword & Sorcery feel of the world.

Thanks for sharing! I particularly like how there are symbols throughout the book that help the GM identify optional rules that will provide their game with a particular tone. I wish more systems did this.

I also appreciate the – for lack of a better word – flavorful art and world description. If the PHB and DMG had been presented in this way, I suspect I would've been more excited for 5th Edition.

Looks great but at $42USD postage to Australia I’ll pass.

Yikes! That's terrible. I'm really sorry to hear they couldn't come up with a more economical option, such as using PoD through DTRPG outside the U.S.

The intrigue rules is something that caught my interest. The other rules additions too, but especially this bit.

I'd be curious to see how easily I could combine Action with Dark. Sounds like the recipe for a real Points of Light style campaign, to me.
