Dharman wrote:Ok, I'm really pissed off. I have waited classic fantasy for years and I must admit that it's the masterwork I thought it was. But as soon as I realized that the talents, spells, items and so forth listed on the book go actually from rank 0 to rank 3... I can't stand for this. And now the coupe de grace: the second half of the book, UNEARTHED COMPANION, will be released in 2 years.
Here's the point: the product is clearly incomplete. They list various ranks from 0 to 5 and every rank is mentioned through all the book (random encounters included). But, if you want to play them, you have to wait 2 years and buy another book.
Such a terrible joke.
The product in not incomplete. My playesters, playing every week or two for a full year and a half only reached Rank 2. There is plenty of information in the book to keep a campaign going for a long time.
What he has produced is a work of art and should be able to handle most of the original TSR scenarios from levels 1-8.
I wrote that I really appreciate your masterwork, but I feel it remains a joke somehow. Don't feel offended for this.

For the reasons I mentioned above we were very strict with page count. What he has produced is a work of art and should be able to handle most of the original TSR scenarios from levels 1-8.
I couldn't have done it. Well done.
