from the creator's introduction:
"This book details how to play in a setting that promotes evil. To be the monster, instead of the hero, this is the place to make your start. That said, this is not a book detailing how to use monster races. There are already books about that too. This book is unlike those mentioned in that it gives you a reason to play evil beyond what you would normally expect.
"What will you find in here? For starters, there are new races, new feats, new classes, new prestige classes, new spells? well, you get the idea. There's plenty of new game information packed into these pages to make it worth reading. But there's more than that. There's a new idea. This book is based on the idea that there is no reason why a party of evil characters cannot function well together and, in fact, better than a party of good characters.
"Why evil? Well, for one thing, evil is fun. After all, this is a fantasy game, and if you played the good, law-abiding citizens every time, how far is that removed from your every day life? (Let's hope not too far.) This gives you a chance to spread your creative wings and soar into new possibilities. Within these pages is the basis for an entirely new city, one founded on the ideals of darkness."
This book provides a solid basis for a campaign based around evil characters, or the information can be used to provide a different kind of challenge for a group of good characters.
Whether you're looking for something new for your next campaign, or you want something fresh for your players of any level in your existing campaign, Garath 'Nok has something for you.
(Note: There is no city map.)
