This book should be the cornerstone of any Game Master's collection, I don't think I've run games better than the ones I only need to spend 30 minutes prepping. Do yourself a favor and buy it NOW.

Kid Friendly Character Sheet

Adorable, amazing, and simplifies the character sheet down to one page. Though I do wish it had a spell sheet, it's still incredibly useful, I can see this also being used to explain various parts of the game to new players of all ages.

Howdy, Thanks for the very kind review. I'm in the process of making a slightly more simplified spell sheet aimed at kids, but until then the other spell sheet I have might do the trick: http://www.dmsguild.com/product/241282/Class-Character-Sheets--The-Spell-Sheet
Balasar's Guide to Exploration

(EDITED after further reading)

This book is amazing! Lots of flavorful additions, interesting rules, and I love traps and curses!... but there're two things that bother me. It has it's fair share of grammar and poor wording, especially in the subclasses, and it has a strange a lack of flavor for a book of it's kind, with the descriptive text and the presentation of the titular Balasar (though the classes boast a variety of interesting lore and are very well thought out narratively). For the former, I've created a little perusal of the first couple of subclasses and my callouts for grammar/spelling/poor-wording.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rjYS2pf7r8C3uXZwMPpBGeovjSmEaFREH15VMYGC-VU/edit?usp=sharing here's the thing for that.

As for the secondary issue, I think it's just a lack of art (which I know is hard to get/make, and this is a free supplement so I understand) but also the fact that Balasar isn't well established as a character. He seems to be a blander version of Volo in my opinion, I will not tell you how to write your character, but I think Balasar should be given more dialogue, more flavor to what he says, and depth and meaning to his quips. I would happily buy this as a full supplement, for an actual full price, if it had;

  1. Further editing, particularly in spelling, grammar, and wording.
  2. A bit more flavor, maybe some art if you can get it (public domain has a lot of good stuff, so does DMsguild for free use!) and more stuff about Balasar!
  3. It's own look, it just feels like a bland homebrewery PDF, it should have a bit of flavor with it's page color, maybe even it's font! Just an idea.

I won't pretend that I can critique your classes, I ain't THAT smart about DnD, but they look really cool though! The half races definitely look interesting, if a bit abusable. And the subclasses generally look well-made, well balanced, and very fun to play.

Hopefully a version 2 of this comes out eventually, with fixed wording issues, art, it's own product dressing, a bit more flavor from the narrator, and perhaps at a premium (5 - 10 bucks) price, so I can support it further. Once I get the money, I'll definitely be dropping a few bucks on this, since it's such a steal at it's current name-your-price. I know I've been critical, but overall, I really like this and it's a BOATLOAD of great content. Great job!
