It covers each of the races but only had 6 classes, none of which are magic users - I think they were trying to avoid the more complicated aspects of the game.
Excellent in all aspects.
Great illustrations , very very helpful layout , easy to read, great and very useful and full of flavor details.
O ponto negativo do livro é que seu preço é salgado para o tamanho, ele é apenas complementar e não inclui jogabilidade ou regras ao RPG, nem conteúdo novo, e também não abrange todas as classes e raças. algumas ilustrações como a de raças poderia ter o corpo inteiro desenhado e para os dois sexos, facilitando a perspectiva da mesa sobre como são de fato as raças (o livro apresenta apenas os rostos femininos para raças, e rostos masculinos para as classes). poderia ser mais completo.
The book is filled with well made pictures of races, items, weapons and armor, but it doesn't describe any attributes, quantity of items in a pack or anything. The best part of it is when it gives you pre-made character for a class, giving you some tips and personality traits.
It's cool to look at, but it is not useful on an actual D&D campaing. What are learned from it is that there were 2 races I had never heard of before, the Tabaxi, that are cat like creatures, and the Kenku, that are crow like creatures (they remind me of some enemies in bloodborne)
I don't recommend getting this book, unless you know absolutely nothing of D&D and want to know what some races and characters look like. But you can just google that.
Das Buch ist natürlich hauptsächlich für Neueinsteiger gedacht, aber selbst für den erfahrenen, aber unentschlossenen, Spieler kann es häufig nützlich sein. Die Rassen sind sehr gut beschrieben, das Artwork ist top-notch und Ausrüstung & Gegenstände bieten das Gleiche. Sogar die Klassen sind gut beschrieben, ohne spezielle Regeln erwähnen zu müssen und es gibt sogar einen Entscheidungsbaum, sollte man mal nicht wissen, welche Klasse man spielen möchte. Leider sind in diesem Buch nur die Non- bzw. Half-Caster beschrieben. Sprich Barde, Kleriker, Druide, Sorcerer, Warlock und Wizard fehlen leider. Für diese kommt erst (10. Mörz) 2020 das schwer zu findende "Wizards & Spells" heraus, welches sicher noch einige andere Infos über Zauberklassen beinhalten wird.
Bei den Rassen haben sie dafür kaum eine ausgelassen. Sogar Tortle sind beschrieben. :D
Buenas y bonitas ilustraciones así como buena calidad en todo sentido
Lo único malo es que no viene nada de protección dentro del embalaje, venía en una caja pero dentro de esta no tenía ningún resguardo. Llegó bien y completo pero si no tienen cuidado los de paquetería pueden pasar cosas feas
Compre también el de creaturas pero eso es otra historia
Ya quiero que salgan los otros dos (dungeons y hechizos )
Lo recomiendo para principiantes o para coleccionistas, pues el arte está muy bien pulido.
