Foundations has been getting great coverage in the gaming media. Check
out some of these reviews and podcasts:
“The mechanical aspects of the book are top notch and continue Goodman
Games’ commitment to quality 4e products. The setting material provides
a sufficient level of detail (sometimes misplaced) to allow DMs to run
several campaigns and gain very different perspectives on the game world.”
vs. Hero: “Genuine soul-searching like the kind provoked by the world
of Amethyst Foundations is priceless; it is always the starting point or
the end product of the best kinds of storytelling.”
“Overall, Amethyst looks like a very solid offering in the GSL for settings.
I hope we see more of it.”
