  1. Seriously – just buy it.

    I am not super into D&D and so I was on the fence about getting something like this. My wife really wanted some lore for our campaign with her family for the Underdark, so I bought this for her as a surprise. This book is so amazing it has single-handedly elevated my opinion of D&D.

    The setting is AMAZING.
    The art is AMAZING.
    The quality is OUTSTANDING.
    The story is AMAZING.

    If you are on the fence, just spend the money if you have. This is better than ANYTHING Wizards has put out in years. If you have any interest in playing in a subterranean setting, this is the book to grab.

    The PDF is a good deal, but the book is really stellar. It is such high quality construction, crystal clear art, great looking pages, and fantastic foiling. The book is 100% worth the $100 price tag.

    Customer service is also fantastic. I caught the book on a sale, but needed to delay shipping due to travel for work. They got back to me same day and delayed the shipment by a week. A+ customer service.

    You CANNOT go wrong with this purchase!!

  3. I have to say this book is higher quality and significantly better than anything Wizard’s has put out by a pretty wide margin. I bought this and Out of the Abyss together and ended up giving away OotA because it’s hot garbage and has zero originality.

    Rise of the Drow has a bunch of really good ideas to work with to create original encounters versus the WOTC style of yet another random encounter from the Monster Manual with a vanilla description that you’ve got to throw out and put in a lot of effort replacing.

  4. Epic isn’t a good enough description! The opening moments are fast and frantic, the storyline is complex yet fully fleshed out, and the ability to add or modify encounters to suit your group is key to keeping the pacing. I have been DM’ing this adventure for about 2 months now, and my group is loving every moment. I have been playing DnD since the late 70’s and this adventure should go down as one of the games best!

  5. The quality of this book is great. It has a firm construction and the pages are great paper quality. The storyline layout inside is superb and easy to follow as a DM. Thanks AAW!
