    I'm all over these two Nentir Vale products (as well as the entire adventure trilogy). And thats the only two definite buys for me.

    The Plane Above will get a look-see, but I'm totally on board with the "less is more" approach of the 4E MOTP: I'd rather do my own thing with the framework presented there.

    Thanx for the FYI, Thalmin

    On the Astral Sea, characters face off against angels, devils, githyanki, and even the gods and their exarchs while exploring dungeons,
    Exploring Dungeons.

    *wince*

    That's pretty much anathema to my heavily Planescape inspired view of the planes. At least it's a different cosmology and setting entirely in 4e, rather than trying to impose that style of design ethic on prior material (which approached the planes from a very different perspective than extraplanar dungeons).

    While I don't run dungeons either normally or especially in the planes. I don't see having dungeons as being a bad thing for the book. Especially when you consider this book is oriented not specifically at just Planescape games, but just planar games in general.

    There is no reason dungeons can't exist in the planes. Be it a shifting changing cave complex in the Elemental Chaos, the pits of Hell, etc. It is afterall just another option for games, I am sure there will be plenty of other stuff as well. Afterall with this being core D&D and not a setting one, it is even more expected to just take what you wish.

    Well, I started in PS also, and I gotta admit there are PLENTY of planar "dungeons" to explore; UnderSigil, the caverns of Pandemonium, The realms of demon lords and archdevils, the festering corpses of dead gods, Githyanki citadels, the caverns of thought, etc.

    They're not 10'x10' rooms full of random treasure and wandering encounters, but they are "dungeons", so I don't find the two complete incomparable. Besides how else is your thief gonna slink into some high-up's kip, rob him blind, and give him the laugh, cutter?

    I go by the philosophy that "A dungeon is where the people with red circles under their feet are."

    Office building acting as a front for a secret government lab, filled with g-men, soldiers, and sentry drones? Dungeon.

    Distressed slum in Sigil's Hive, vacant except for the mad castoffs willing to shiv you for a single coin? Dungeon.

    Body of a forgotten god, cast adrift on the astral sea and swarming with undead horrors from before time? Dungeon (...actuallly, they published that one already)

    Will anyone who has DDI buy this? I can see the argument that people want a book so they can browse it at their leisure, but a 32 page softcover? Anyone who has DDI will get all the crunch for free and this time the crunch is limited enough that you can browse it fast in the DDI even if you are not much of a fan of reading on a screen and we already have a very decent dragon article for fluff.

    Thanks as always thalmin for tpying this up. I really appreciate it. One question about the catalog though, does it also happen to list WotC novels? If so could you do me a favor and list off any campaign settings that are getting novels in this quarter. If not then don't worry about it.

    I personally am going to get it in part to see what these books are like. Although I can certainly see some people picking it up for the fluff itself if a decent amount of the book is fluff.

    When I said 4E planes where "dungeons everywhere" some people rushed to defend world axis.

    Now there it is: Wotc's own words. The planes are big dungeons, no matter how much sugar people put in it.

    For people who see D&D as a combat game it's fantastic. For me, not so much.

    Look, I like 4E A LOT, all my games are 4E, I'm not an edition basher.

    I just hope the people in charge of 4E fluff be in charge of something else when 5E shows up.

    This dwarf village looks nice to me.
    The 3D tiles are surely a change.
