I hate how good product descriptions are some time. They me all excited but I find that the majority don't deliver. This one sounds extremely tasty though. If anybody picks this one up or has a chance to sift through it, please let me know what you thought about it.

I actually thought it sounded a little weak. A whole campaign setting based around a couple dark entities... not enough crunch to get me running to the bookstore.

I could build a universe around such a thing. Just look at the Titans in Greek mythology. I think if each entity is well described and if presented in the right fashion, the book could be awesome. But as I stated before, few books actually are as exciting inside as they sound when reading the summary on the back.
