You will not understand a lot of the references. You're intentionally left out of the loop. But as a secondary reward you do get some DM tools to help you run a corporate adventuring business.
The book description should say "how to build a corporate business in the forgotten realms flavored with references that you wont understand"
It's not appealing to me. I recieved the book today and it was damaged. I will gladly return this "Acq Inc" book. 1 out of 5 rating.
-just added a picture of the warped book, I didnt get a picture of the smushed spine.
There is so much existing setting and mechanical content from prior editions of D&D that one of the largest areas of opportunity is content that feels really new and different, and this book accomplished that incredibly.
The overall concept may sound fun and light, but truly there is nothing that requires this to be any more or less whimsical than the table wants it to be. It’s fun because the complete openness of tabletop role play is fun and you can absolutely create a franchised business model game and have an incredible time.
The franchising mechanics are well thought out, interesting and balanced. The magical item addition is a multi-faceted, creative idea. The monster additions perfectly balance the worlds of PA and D&D. The adventure is fun and interesting. The new race could easily become a standard of any campaign. It’s just a solid book.
Simply, the people who made this book love playing D&D and it shows. If you’ve been waiting for fresh content, here it is.
More than anything else, this book inspired creativity when I was thinking about story for my campaign more than anything I’ve read in years. “Maybe not exactly like this, but how could I work similar guild mechanics? I could make a multi-stage quest item and use this as a template!” So you don’t have to be running a “pure” Acquisitions Incorporated campaign to find this incredibly useful.
There is like NO mention of Binwin Bronzebottom or Aeofel Elhromane. This is a huge let down from anybody who's followed the saga from the start. I quickly skimmed through the parts of the book I hadn't completely read, so it's possible that I may have missed a note here or there. But the only mention I initially saw of either character was just their names and their creators listed in the legal text in the footnotes in the credits after the title page. Seriously, there is more information about Splug, the goblin from the very first adventure, than either of the other two arguably founding characters of the series.
There *is* one piece of art of a skeleton in an acid pit trap, so technically that could be Aeofel. But not having them in here feels like the revisionist history of the series and is just not fun. I understand that these characters are owned by their players and probably just decided not to be part of it for whatever reason. But it's sad to finally have this product and not have them in there in any way. That really took a lot of the pleasure out of it for me.
If you are a big fan of the C-Team and the more recent Acq Inc. stories, then you should definitely grab this book and enjoy! If you are a fan from the early days and was hoping to see more from that part of the series... you should definitely be aware that these two key characters aren't in here at all. It was like they never existed as far as this volume was concerned (and that really sucks!).
I understand that revisiting the history of the series is not the purpose of this book, it's more about giving you the tools to play in their universe and incorporate (no pun intended) their stuff into your own games. So for that, I feel that it excels and is a great supplement. It was just super jarring to see mention of the early days and even get stats for most of the main characters and NOT have these guys included.
DMs... Need extra time between writing or prepping a new campaign? Use the downtime to run an adventure entirely around the business. Lacking inspiration for this? Not to worry, there’s a six episode adventure included to get your feet wet with!
The juxtaposition between the mundane and the magical is what really makes this supplement shine.
