Xanathar’s Guide To Everything – In Review

dx_xanathar_sub-header

I realize Xanathar’s Guide To Everything came out over a year ago…

But I felt inclined to review it after using it quite a bit in my current campaign.

I will only be reviewing the content that I’ve been using, as opposed to the whole book

CHARACTER OPTIONS (Archetypes);

First there’s the fact that it holds a generous amount of New Character Class Options/Archetypes

3 For Barbarians, 3 For Bards, 2 For Clerics, 2 For Druids, 3 For Fighters, 2 For Paladins, 3 For Rangers, 4 For Rogues, 3 For Sorcerers, 2 For Warlocks And 1 For Wizards

These alone make the book worth getting

As a DM (Dungeon Master) I’ve used several of these new options to create several NPCs…

Such as a Multi Class Samurai/Kensai Monk…

…Samurai being a new Fighter Option, and Kensai being a new Monk Option.

I love this character

Also I’ve made a ‘Horizon Walker’, and a ‘Monster Slayer’, which are two new Ranger Options

Love them both

My Player who plays a Pact of the Chain Warlock, also took on one level of ‘Shadow Magic’, a new Sorcerer Option.

She loves it.

========================

The next section has been huge for me

log

RANDOM ENCOUNTER (Charts)

This includes lists for Player Levels 1-4, 5-10, 11-16 and 17-20 for the following areas;

Arctic, Coastal, Desert, Forest, Grassland, Hill, Mountain, Swamp, Underdark, Underwater and Urban

As a DM this has saved me from having to create my own Random Charts, plus has exposed me to all sorts of Creatures I would otherwise never used.

These Charts are DM gold

NEW SPELLS;

There are a ton of new Spells as follows;

11 New Bard Spells, 5 New Cleric Spells +2 Cantrips, 30 New Druid Spells +10 Cantrips, 42 New Sorcerer Spells +8 Cantrips, 30 New Warlock Spells +6 Cantrips And 68 New Wizard Spells +9 Cantrips

These alone, as well, make this worth getting.

This is not a huge book, but is jammed with relevant content

Lastly there’s a whole section on

CHARACTER NAMES;

For such Races as;

Dragonborn, Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Halfling, Half Orc, Tiefling

Also a large assortment of Human Names;

Arabic, Celtic, Chinese, Egyptian, English, French, German, Greek, Indian, Japanese, Mesoamerican, Niger-Congo, Norse, Polynesian, Roman, Slavic, Spanish

These are extremely useful as names for me can be tough

For 192 Pages this thing is packed and there are other things in this book that I’ve never used as well.

Not bad for 20ish bucks at Amazon
