The preferred classes section on each land gives the reader an idea of the type of people they will encounter. Plus, a lot of critters I haven’t seen before, including a small section of what I guess you could call “stock” demons. I have Dragonlords llords Melnibone Each nation is listed with a number of factors that influence the traits of an individual character.
Originally reviewed by Jesse Dean of AtFantasy. Stylistically it is well done, but it does not convey distances in anything more than a general sense. There is also a sidebar of PC classes available by region.
Introduce all the feats you want – these are additional powers and you don’t limit anything by adding more. However, with Elric back in reprint have the novels really ever been out of print a lazy weekend can have you in the feel without too much effort.
Relics and Rituals, for example, only introduced one skill. The art ranges from good to lovingly terrible, the writing is good, and the treatment of demons and their summoning, control and role in the game is excellent — easily the best part of the book, IMO.

The game rules give applications for allegiance, how to acquire oords points, and how to become the champion of a law, chaos, or balance. Robert Lease rated it really liked it Sep 10, The demon summoning system is interesting and offers a different way of maintaining game balance by having stat point costs to bind demons A similar book from WOTC would probably cost almost double that they price the non-core books really high.
