      My wallet become filled with inner peace when it sees a d&d release that is clearly a pass.

      Agreed. I love the stream, don't really have room for the silliness in an actual game.

      Can't help myself. Had to get it. I plan to run the included adventure as a mini campaign and generally enjoy it as something to read. I doubt I'll be incorporating AI into my home campaign.

      Well, it does make other books look like better purchases Yeah, a bit too much silly... and I have enough reading material as it is.

      The blurb doesn’t really say what the book is for someone who has never heard of this before.

      D&DBeyond did a preview of it last week: https://www.dndbeyond.com/posts/459-...t-acquisitions

      THere's a new player race, some expanded faction mechanics, more monster and NPC statblocks, and a 1-6 adventure.

      I'll probably skip this one - it's far too gonzo for my own tastes to use at the table.

      Then again, I do quite like PA and AI, so could eventually pick it up at some point just to read rather than use.

      What's the opposite of a hard pass? A soft receive? I soft received on this. The C-Team started around the time I moved across the country and effectively stood in for the social ties I left behind. There's no accounting for taste, of course; I do not expect everyone to like it. But I do.

      One area of acute interest are the Acquisitions Incorporated team roles. For those unfamiliar, these are a collection of classes that run parallel to -and independent of- your character's main class. They provide equipment and abilities like any other class does. Until now they have been homebrew, but being published as official DnD material raises some questions for which I'm quite curious to read answers. For instance, does this represent the usual power creep as the edition ages, or is there some heretofore unknown negative aspect acting as a balancing factor? Regardless, I look forward to seeing what level of faction-based benefits will be officially sanctioned here.

      I honestly do not see this as being any more silly than any of the faction in Dragon Heist. If anything, it fits the flavor of FR Waterdeep perfectly.

      Branding is everything. Quality-wise, this is no better than the Magic book, well it probably is because more effort was probably put into it because the IP is less known, but reception will be worse because the IP is less known.

      I don't play gonzo D&D so this will be a non-purchase for me too.
