Word of Wizards - Excerpts: Practical Guide to Faeries
Practical Guide to Faeries Excerpts
I was curious to see what this book is really all about but at least my initial predictions of it were correct. If you haven't guessed it, it's a children's book about faeries, written for easy understanding and comes with alot of cute illustrations of faeries (but the redcap does look mean).
I'm not sure how exactly is this related with D&D but I guessed the mere mention of the word 'Feywild' justifies it. Although written plainly and obviously for a younger audience, there are a few things that can be picked up and turned into a good adventure seed or a simplified fluff of the fey so at least this book isn't actually useless for DMs.
The excerpts themselves are pretty useful to have if you need a little more ideas to flesh out the Feywild in your game. If the book itself is inexpensive, it's probably worth picking it up or if you have kids then this book should point a good direction towards fantasy roleplaying.
