    I appreciate the druids, but there are so many wonderful and strange Eberron locations that they could have gone for instead… and yet they return to the most completely generic fantasy setting of them all.

    This just feels a little bit overly cynical, to me. They’ve just switched dimensional planes all together without even bothering to tap the more unusual parts of the setting they’re already using. It feels a bit like a money grab.

    “Hey, look at us! We’re doing the boring parts of the Forgotten Realms too, now! We embrace your Drizzzzzzt characters! Can we be cool enough now to have your money?”
