If you've downloaded the PDFs of Level Up from DTRG, we'd really appreciate it if you'd spare a moment to leave a quick review or comment!

I've added star reviews, but Trials and Treasures isn't showing up as a product I can review. It's there in my Library, but the link leads me to a page saying the product is not available.

Slight glitch but try again! :)

I see Rant is back and reviewbombing them with the same old junk he was posting here.
Yeah. He very angry. I expect he'll do that on all of the books. Which is why it's important that folks have a selection of reviews to read!

I see since he got banned from here he downgraded his opinion of Level Up from "I like it but my definition of compatibility is this exact thing" to "I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU!"

Q: I know level up is a standalone game, but how easy is it to pick bits and pieces of it to use with 5e core?

This might influence my Christmas purchasing decisions. :)

I'll just cut-and-paste my review over at DTRPG of the Trials & Treasures book:

I give this 5 stars for the Encounter Design, Exploration, and Exploration Challenges sections alone. That's about 120 pages of content that any GM could use - and a lot of it could be used in games that aren't strictly fantasy; the Regions and Explorations Challenges could be put to use even in sci-fi games. There's also 13 pages on worldbuilding, and sections on Maladies, various kinds of Adventuring Rewards, and of course Enchanted Gear!

Fairly easy. If you remember the days of 3.0/3.5 when you might use stuff from one in the other it's a level of effort that is probably similar or ;less depending on the thing. The biggest loss you might run into is that o5e has a lot of things that allow a player to just automatically succeed at something at no cost/effort like outlander/goodberry/tiny hut/etc while levelup/a5e is designed to avoid that kind of stuff. You can use o5e archetypes with levelup classes but tbh the a5e ones with all of their choices are so much better & flavorful that nobody will want to :D
 




Y'all made me go read the reviews just so I could read his!

What I have found over time is that all 1 star reviews can be ignored. It's the 2 and 3 star reviews you want to focus on, because they will have positive and negative things to say and often reveal plenty about a product, whereas all 1 star reviews are just unhinged rants or someone complaining that their particular product was faulty (which isn't really a review).

Sometimes 1-star reviews are good for entertainment value.

Sadly, I don't think I'm informed enough about the products to leave a review at this stage. After I read them thoroughly, try a game with the system, etc., I'll try to get one written.

Righto! Never considered this, but I really should go through my dtrpg library and review a lot of books that I’ve liked…
