The original announcement from Critical Role's Darrington Press made a brief mention of it, but Beadle & Grimm has now shared some details about the boxed set version of the campaign setting. You can pre-order it now.

I fell in love with Tal'Dorei when I first played in it, and have loved running in it for the past two years.

I also love... special editions, for lack of a better overall concept. I'm happy to pay more to get more.

But I do not see what, if anything, justifies such increased costs. This looks like paying a lot more to get a little more. Or... paying for bragging rights? "I have money to spare. I am therefore clearly better than you."

What in there is worth the extra $200 to $300?

Also, maybe someone else who has Bought Beadle and Grimm before can explain... how is breaking my lovely hardcover down into several little softcovers better? I have the Numenera Boxed set where they did this - given to me as a present - and I have no use for the numenera-in-three-parts book.


That being said, I've already earmarked my money for the Tal'Dorei Reborn HC.

I would say that if you have that kind of money for a special edition, the price shouldn't be an issue. Though, I agree with you that some other Beadle Grimm boxed sets were more impressive for less money.

I can feel/agree with that statement. The front cover on the regular Hardcover is pretty great looking and it would suck to break it into smaller softcovers that probably won't have it. Honestly I would probably say that, unless you REALLY want the Faction stuff, which is kinda crazy priced as it is, I'd say that really only the Awakened Tier edition, that comes with the Battle Maps, is truly worth it.

I do have the Waterdeep: Dragonheist B&G and will say that for THAT particular adventure, breaking it down into smaller books made a lot of sense and was very helpful due to the "seasonal" permutations of the adventure - it saved a lot of page-flipping. That was B&G's first adventure, and I assumed it was a choice made specifically due to the structure of WDH. I did not expect that they'd keep doing it for more conventionally-structured books, and I agree it seems an odd choice.
 


IDK, I feel like a $350 boxed set should include all the battle maps.
It includes BOTH the Battle Maps and the Faction Icon goods, which I can only assume is the reasoning that shoots that Tier to its $349 tier. I personally feel the Faction stuff is somewhat overpriced to begin with. The $299 tier allows you the choice of either the Maps OR the Faction stuff to be included.

If you don’t see the value of being able to hand out the player options booklet to one person while another reads the lore book, then fair enough part of the set isn’t gonna be for you.

I got the Eberron set, and if you were to tabulate all the things inside, at their quality level, I got them at a discount, overall.

The encounter cards, the many full sized, high quality, maps, the magic item card deck, the handful of short adventures complete with handouts, the general purpose handouts like the broadsheets with adventure hooks in the news articles, etc. It is very much not just the book and some trinkets at a big markup.
