By yasadu d. s.
“The NPCs for all three of the taverns were exceptionally well crafted. The ones with stats have interesting abilities that reflect their background well.
The formatting for this book is well done, with no mistakes I noticed. Overall, I rate this a 5/5.”
“I applaud this often neglected and stigmatized aspect of the facts of life. Run by Prim, a most charming hostess who was reimagined as a human in 5e and comes with full stats, this place is indeed a veritable oasis of delights – and information: The detailed rumors and events provided further emphasize this. Prim’s 5e-iteration is cool in that her luck-based tricks have been redesigned as several cool lair actions, which I most certainly loved.”
“I really enjoyed Kelly & Ken Pawlik’s Delectable Dragonfly – it is a unique and flavorful establishment that represents a nice change of pace- a sanctuary of women, a place to enjoy gossip and the finer things in life, the tea house is evocative and flavorful. The NPC-builds are creative and varied and then adventuring potential conveyed via the rumors and events as well as the serial killer subplot, is extensive.”
By Ismael A.
“The book overall does a good job of presenting the race with ample backstory and flavor text that establishes not only the Grippli, but the way that they are viewed by some other races. The material does well to expound on the grippli as a people, as well as why they would be adventurers, helping potential players with ideas that would fill out a Grippli’s backstory, personality, and even sample names.”
“…this is a very interesting little adventure with a cool concept that seems to be very fun to run or play.”
