Takže souhlasíte s Mortem, nebo ne? Jaký máte názor na příručky k Forgotten Realms a DnD/D20 od Wizards of the Coast vůbec.
Před tímto textem jsem kritizoval například příručku Lost Empires of Faerun, že místo nějakého hlubšího poisu ztracených království obsahuje 60 stran zbytečností - pravidel a monstrous manuálu.
Stejně tak sjem porovnával rozsah Demihuman Deities a Faiths and Pantheons.

Some definitely feel more 'lopsided', but the writers are trying to give something for everyone.Dalcor píše:Well i mus confirm that FR has a :lots; of background informtions - desriptions. But main part of every forgotten realms handbook consists of rules / mainly PrCs, speels, feats, skills. It is great difference to 2nd edition stuff.
Yes, there are plenty of players out there who like the rules part and don't really care about the background. There are others who are just the opposite. I am somewhere in between - I like SOME new rules and stuff, but I don't need an entire book of background to 'hold my hand' and walk me through everything. I like to take ideas presented, and flesh them out myself.
Myth Drannor is a 'special' circumstance. I agree with you that it is one of the more tragic parts (And cooler parts) of FR history. That's why I think we'll eventually see products that are devoted ONLY to Myth Drannor. They had them in 2nd edition, so I bet we'll see more of them in 3rd, too! It just might take some time.
I am not saying 3.5/D20 is perfect. I change rules, too, to suit my group better. I am just saying that I think the FR books are (for the most part) still very useful, beyond the special new rules they provide.
