Focused Review - Strixhaven: A Syllabus of Sorcery

by Mike Bernier of Arcane Eye

Taking classes in a magical school cannot be the easiest thing in the world. Powerful teachers, deadly school rivals, and intra-faction romance can all work against your GPA. Well, your magic-school fantasy might have just taken on another level of challenge with Strixhaven: A Syllabus of Sorcery from Arcane Eye. It is a book of charts and events that can happen while enrolled in the Strixhaven curriculum.

This book is designed to work with Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos. Within the pages of Strixhaven: A Syllabus for Sorcery, the former manual is often referenced, with page numbers to make it easy to find a given rule. The author worked hard to integrate the two books and it pays off I think. The class events alone, (class as in school class, not character class), would have been worth the effort, but the author has added group and rival mechanics. This could overwhelm the DM if they are not careful, but it provides material for almost any situation that a DM can come up with. And if not, the tables provide some fodder for situation building.

In terms of design, the book is pleasant, reminding me a bit of an ancient Rolemaster companion with all of its tables and extra goodies. If you are running a Strixhaven campaign or something similar, there is a lot of value here. Four flying brooms out of five.

Images are too large. For me, they don't even fit on my screen. Small place holders linked to the full sized images would be better imo.

I like the short review, well done.
Not sure the top 5 Adapt products is needed. Aren't those already just a search on the Guild away? What about some categories like "New Creators Worth a Look", or "New from Our Favorite Creators" or "Best New Adventures", "Best New Player Options", or "Best New DM Resources".

No rule is inviolate
So why did Minsc's tattoo migrate from one side of his face to the other? Go for the eyes Boo! Butts will be liberally kicked in good measure!

I agree. A review isn't super helpful if it just flags stuff that are already best-sellers that get a spotlight on the DMs Guild site anyhow. Much more useable would be something that dives into the under-the-radar independent stuff to dig out the hidden gems.
