Superb developing work of the Greyhawk setting and adaptation to AD&D by Carl Sargent. Content presents an alive, changing and vibrant world. I find this much more interesting than the bland, decaffeinated contents published by WoTC in most of its 5e materials. Very good quality scans. I would love to see this and other Greyhawk titles in POD!

I've always liked FTA simply because there is adventure here and bucket loads of it. Both books are crammed with adventure hooks, high intrigue, mystery and wonder. The post war Greyhawk setting is a dangerous place but is somewhere that adventurous souls can really make a difference.

The new (2014) scans clock in at a mighty 144mb but the quality is greatly improved over the previous versions. The text is much clearer and easy to read and the maps are no longer cut up and spread over several pages of the PDF.

The essential boxed set for Greyhawk 2nd Edition, a gem of the Dungeons&Dragons history. It provides a lot of historical, geographical, racial, religious information covering Flanaess as well as the expanded lands around the Free City of Greyhawk in depth. The reader will also find useful adventure hooks, several mini-adventures and of course colour maps. From the Ashes is a must for all those who collect D&D material or who cherish quality traditional worlds of epic fantasy.

<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: It offers a very detailed and quality description of some lands of the Greyhawk world. The six mini-adventures and the card sheets are a nice addition.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: From the Ashes focuses just on Flanaess, the eastern part of the continent Oerik. It does not deal with Oerik or any other continent in its entirety. Moreover, I would have wanted it to contain bigger city maps and of course a greater number of them. When it comes to the quality of this .pdf file, it is unquestionable that a better fate has befallen the .pdf files of other 2nd Edition boxed sets, such as those of Forgotten Realms, Dark Sun. From the Ashes file is thoroughly searchable however and in integrity it gets 5 stars as it includes everything, the 2 booklets, the cardsheets, maps etc.

<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br><BR>[THIS REVIEW WAS EDITED]<BR>
