With the redone Keep being released- are there any reviews out there? Any of those lucky enough to have a copy already care to share your thoughts?

I think mine just arrived! I will be reading through it tonight.

EDIT: Took a look, quite the volume! I'm still not so sure about including both reprints + the variants, it's literally half the book. This seems like an ultra-historical take on a 5th Edition adventure that is essentially for beginning DMs and Players (at least according to the text I read through last night.)

The Fifth Edition content as usual, is fantastic. The rooms are fully populated with interesting monsters, characters, and loot.

Or it's an ultra-historical reproduction and re-presentation, that happens to also have some 5e content... :wink:

Not so much a review, but an observation. Noticed some discrepancies between the weapons and equipment in various sections of the book. Example: In The Keep on the Borderlands, the Kobold Cave lists elite kobolds and the kobold chieftain as having specific weapons and armor in Appendix B that are totally different than what they have listed in the keyed areas. I'm going to assume the keyed area listings are the correct weapons and armor.
