Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide – Review

I have been reading Wizard of the Coast’s new D&D Book: Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide (SCAG), and overall I really like it. It’s a nice addition to my growing collection of 5th edition books. To be honest, when I first got the book, I just skipped to the back portion of the book where there were mechanics to see what is new. And then I decided to give the book a good read through, and I am glad that I did.

SCAG Sword Coast MapI realize for some people this is just another Splat book. Some of you aren’t playing Forgotten Realms, and what can be used in your campaigns is minimal. There is a section at the end that has instructions/ideas for converting some of the Class options to other D&D campaign worlds;  Dragonlance, Ebberon, Greyhawk,and Homemade Worlds. I think that the primary purpose of the book is as a player resource for inspiration with the people and places of the Sword Coast.
