  1. Absolutely gorgeous book, not a blemish in sight. Can’t wait to get into it and dm it.

  2. 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.

  3. Didn’t believe the hype, became a believer!

    So first of all, I was amazed at the outstanding level of service, the book was shipped with a custom-for-the-book box that hugs and protects the book during S&H.

    Mr. Nelson emailed me immediately after I had some questions, very courteous, prompt and professional.

    And lastly, the book itself is a gem of RPG material!

  4. Absolutely fantastic! This book is amazing, the price was well worth it, and the free gift was the cherry on top. Ordering online was super easy, shipping was quick, and the book is exactly what I expected it to be.

  5. This book is really impressive. I just started reading it, but it is definitely a high quality product. Also, it shipped in the most secure box I’ve ever seen. There wasn’t a single bent corner. Amazon should take notes from AAW on shipping books.
