I didn't like it because I don't like JJ abrahms style of directing. Definitely better than the prequels fwiw

I allow elves, but only if they're played like keebler elves.

I know I've suggested it before, but a numbered hex map would be nice for those of us who like to sandbox.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/blooper.png

My issue with 5e isn't so much the rules. It is an improvement over 3.0 through 4e. My main issue is the support material. WotC's Tyranny of the Dragons is pretty dumb, and if this kind of shlock is what we can expect from them when it comes to settings and such, count me out.

You can get some hardback books to lie flat, but forget POD style hardback doing this. It will be expensive, not many book printers will do the type of binding required for this style cheaply.

I try to keep to the rule that with riches and wealth comes a grim downside.

You should check out the D30 sandbox companion, something that allows you to organize overland locations. http://www.rpgnow.com/product/124392/d30-Sandbox-Companion

It's nice for a ref to have something fast to get from location to location. I don't like to share the actual map from the game with my players, just rough hand drawn maps that may or may not be accurate.

Khromarium in my game is HUGE. I used the Vornheim book from LotFP to build it. Lots of slaver gangs, seedy thief guilds, and corrupt nobles. The idea behind it is that it's ancient and been built over numerous time. The undercity is massive too.

I've had a little difficulty in handling this as a referee in my games, but my players haven't ventured too far outside Khromarium. I'm used to numbered hex maps to make the sandbox a little easier to navigate on the fly, and kind of wish there was one of the map for this game.

I've got a plan to redraw the map in hexographer and let the program number it for me. There's a tracing function in the program that'll allow me to place the actual map underneath and trace over the actual lines. The trick is getting the hex cells to match up.
