About a week ago I received my copy of Worm Witch and I wanted to circle back to my original post and jot down some new thoughts as well as provide some pictures and comments on the final product.
You can find the original review here.
First thoughts On the print copyThe hardback book is beautiful. Coming it at over 70 pages, the text is meaty and well-stocked with high-quality illustrations. The gloss pages do justice to the excellent art, and the cover really pops. Most fantasy TTRPG books aren't very adventurous with their cover choices, but Worm Witch really stands out. Even when it is on my bookshelf in a row of similarly sized RPG supplements, the spine jumps out with its striking purple color.
|The striking colors really make this book pop (apologies for the glare and poor lighting)|
My Condensed Review
The Worm Witch brings some excellent imaginative old-school RPG classes and spells. They are well thought-out and deeply rooted in the world. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective, as it is hard to pull much from the book that would be useful in other games. The environment that the book details is richly decorated with exciting locales and people, but ultimately serves as more of a backdrop and toolbox for adventures than an adventure in itself. Fortunately, this backdrop is rich and endlessly interesting.
