    Well done Beth. Very useful, for those of us who both do and do not find XgtE to be what we want(ed).

    my main complaint is reprinted content from other books.

    btw I am reading it on D&D Beyond and I like the popups when you highlight keywords. pretty cool hyperlink type stuff

    My only complaint is the reprinted sub classes. Now that I understand the AL standards I get why but really dislike it. Other than that, best book outside of the core three. My group has already had a blast with all of the "this is your life" content.
    Our favorite is our barbarian who's superstition is that when an elf looks you in the eyes they're trying to read your thoughts. He ended up being married twice and randomly rolled elf for both his wives.

    So, I have two questions:

    1: Does it reprint green flame blade and booming blade? (I may have the names slightly off). These two cantrips are essential for playing a "gish" and it's a shame they weren't in the PHB. It would be nice if they were here.

    2: It's Xanathar's guide to everything but... how much Xanathar is there in there?

    They are noticeably not there.

    He gets a blurb box on most subjects.

    Most of his comments are pretty funny. And to be fair, hes not the really famous Xanathar, so it makes sense for him to be a bit comedic.

    I found the Xanathar's comments to be pretty useless, to be honest. Neither interesting or amusing.
