Powers & Pantheons (2e)

I would like to start off by saying I own the hard copies of all three within this series (Faiths & Avatars, Powers & Pantheons, and Demihuman Deities) and the content is excellent. You can read my review of F&A under that title where I give a number of kudos and reasons for purchasing. I purchased the PDF copy of F&A, and was very happy with my purchase because it was a proper PDF. It was properly bookmarked, the text was searchable and selectable, etc. Because I was happy with the F&A PDF, I moved forward with purchasing the PDFs for P&P and DD.

THIS PDF for Powers & Pantheons is abolutely terrible!!! The scan quality is quite poor, it's not searchable, and most of the pages do not contain text...just the poor-quality scan image of the page. If you do stumble upon some actual text, it's completely garbled and unuseable....here's an example:

Mon: CMD.U NDEAD: C: Ye,N iof -ev il, SP No, Cru: No. M m N o All c l u b , cruden, monks, and w i a l t y pauo of the Red Knight re. ceivc religion (FwhrPn) PI a b u r n onrmpon prdciency only in recent memory hsr the Red Knight emerged PI ndemipom in hnomripht,dhttlnsthmTempm.M o n f o l k c i l l v i c w ~ ~ a f o l ~ o r ~ p e cotf Tempur, dmilar eo Veiroi and him, the Foehammer's twin %e& Alchwh the Red Knight lerve all iidci In battle, vilissa, ud city d a n k p ccivc her PI nn ally ofcivtlhtion who cnablea s d l n umba of

I'm beyond dissatisfield, but I'm trying to maintain a civil tone here. The publisher needs to fix this and provide a proper PDF like they did for F&A. I highly recommend NOT purchasing this title until the publisher fixes it!

This book compliments two others, Faiths & Avatars and Demihuman Deities, and has pretty much the same format. All three detail the powers and specialty priests of the Forgotten Realms. This volume describes the demigods of the main Faerunian pantheon, as well as other human-worsipped gods of the Realms including the Mulhorandi (Egyptian), Untheric, and Chultan gods.

I primarily bought this book because I enjoy the whole "backstory" of the Forgotten Realms, and it didn't disappoint. If you ever wanted to know more about obscure deities like Hoar (of the Three Thunders), Gargauth the Outcast, or Sharess, Goddess of Lust(!), then this is the product to buy, as there's more detail about them here than in most other products. There's also a section on some of the major temples of the Realms.

The game mechanics for specialty priests of these gods are also interesting, but probably not as useful unless you still play pre-3rd edition AD&D, whereas the deity descriptions can be adapted for any game system.

Overall, this product is good value for money for any DM running a Realms campaign. The writing is good; the illustrations less so, especially the strange generic "ancient greek woodcut"-type cartouches that pop up all over the place. Unlike another reviewer, I found the text easy enough to read, although the scan isn't perfect.

<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Great campaign info for Forgotten Realms, detailing obscure deities. Specialty priest info for each god.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Illustrations are sporadic and of varying quality.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
