Well, there's some pictures of the table of contents. But what's in there?
A procedural system that drives adventure and player engagement in sandboxes!
Here's how it works.
You are standing in the center of a fantasy world. The Dungeon Master has all his adventure sites and environments prepared.
The players can do whatever they want, but if they want to sleep indoors, they are going to have to come up with the cash. If not, what adventure will befall them on the streets or in the wilderness?
The canny players will be like "How do we get ahead of the game?" You'll grin, and hand them the guide (we calling them control panels now?) in the back of the book with downtime activities. They have to pay that cash on the barrel-head, on a regular schedule using any of the classic and modern calendars contained in the appendix to keep them motivated. Like the Merwish calendar from 1978! Every month events occur, based on percentages you set. The world lives.
All of which lead seamlessly for adventure.
Now, it's not a good idea to run a blind sandbox, there are usually starting adventures that provide different hooks to draw the player into the world. That's why transparently adding this to your campaign reinforces all your hard work! Players will begin to examine your world as a place they can get the resources and information they need to accomplish their goals.
With staged rumors, lots of secondary and tertiary dimensions for players to approach adventures, (Gain influence in town to raise an army, send out expeditions to accomplish secondary goals, manipulate influence from behind the scenes) completely compatible rules for either basic or 5th edition for clearing land and building castle, and lots of treats for players like growing vat monsters, building airships, or setting up bandit camps, it adds new realms of engagement to your game.
Oh, and some of the most creative ideas and tools from the best minds in fantasy gaming.
That's it! My players seem to really like it. So do everyone that already has a copy!
