I am thinking about getting this book, but I need someone to tell me if it is good...

My personal opinion is that they are only for the ubernerds and completionists.
The read is not worth it.

Aren't you though? I recall you having a pretty big collection?

Do you have the white dwarf magazines, marvel winter special and completed sticker album? ;)

I'll top that and use the proper Umlaute which I, being German 'n' all, should have done in the first place.

At least i can prove not to be an Übernöörd by simply not knowing the book! :)

I read in the last three weeks:
The Great Expanse Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

Now i am in the middle of Part 5.

Each of them has 600 pages, medium class science fiction, but no, i am no Übernöörd, just because i don't know the topic of this thread.

You guys really make me feel good. :mrgreen: :D

I have read a lot of fantasy, and I know these books will be no ASOIAF, but are they on par with a run of the mill D&D book?

It's orrrrite.

Its main purpose is that it is written proof, should anyone really need it, that the Fire of Wrath spell doesn't require target LOS.
