But I loved it back in the day.

I never had it back in the day, but recently picked a copy up from Noble Knight. It's a fascinating read, and interesting to see what parts of their dwarf lore still matches and what doesn't. For example, they pitch dwarven armies as mostly guerilla fighters, which is a different take from the doughty, well-armored legions generally pictured these days.

Also, the adventure part's pregens are far more well-defined then TSR's tended to be, with details about their past and motivations that might clash with each other's.

I used to have that book!

....and, yeah, those dwarves are gonna talk $!?# about you once you turn your back.

This is the one I got the most mileage out of. The Mystic Locations were great and had nice fold-out maps. I never got a player character high enough level to even consider using the Arch Magician class, but I've used Arch Magician NPCs before. While most Role Aids supplements were chock-full of stuff you could rip off and reuse, this was the one I ended up reusing the most.

I can't remember which was the one with the Great Beasts? You had "dungeons" which were inside the bodies of ancient leviathans; the maps were great and the ideas were superb.
