Warlords of the Accordlands: World Atlas

Finished reading another Warlords book.

I've got to say, I'm really enjoying this series. If you have any interest in d20 settings, this may well be worth the look. It's definitely one of the best books I've read this year, and not just those submitted for the ENnies.

The world itself has a compelling history, and the various races are interesting and just different enough to make them unique. As an atlas, the book gives great detail on each race and kingdom, and includes maps for several major cities. The cartography is clean and easy to read. Te art is consistently good, with no real stand out pieces (for good or ill).

It's a fantastic book. I give it a 9 out of 10. It might do a tad better, but the history is just a little disorganized, and throws a lot of names at you that just don't stick real well.
