    Yeah, I can speak from experience that mixing the 3E FRCS and SCAG doesn't cause any explosions or anything.

    Of all the reasons to dislike this book, "It's too much fun for D&D" is unequivocally the worst.

    The downtime and faction stuff make this sound like the perfect source for adapting a Ptolus 5E game. It's easy enough to tone down the jokey stuff, IME. It's almost enough for me to put aside my dislike of PA (and I've never been into Actual Plays, so I don't have any attraction from that standpoint). But as a resource for making my own awesome, I'm sorely tempted.

    Pants-on-head zanny fun in a D&D game is not to everyone's taste. I am not buying the book but I am happy it was released.

    I'm adding homebrew Acquisition Incorporated auditors to my game to harass the new franchise:

    There is no place for silliness and whimsy in a game that has owlbears and beholders.

    I would have chosen flumphs instead of owlbears*, but the point remains the same.

    *Owlbears, if you ignore the magical crossbreeding fluff, can actually be actually bemade non-silly. Say that they're dinosaursthe fur is actually quill-like protofeathers (as found on some theropods), with regular feathers in the appropriate places. And the beak with teeth is can be seen as an adapatation to an omniverous diet.

    I love the idea of this book, and dig the art style, but my campaigns are in Greyhawk. Do they suggest where to locate the adventure in Greyhawk, or is that even possible?
