The Random Esoteric Creature Generator

Today I got my copy of James Raggi's The Random Esoteric Creature Generator, published by Goodman Games. In general I like it. However, I do have two criticisms.

  • First, and most important, to the publishers: black text on a gray background with white lines is much harder to read than black text on a white background with black lines Please, please, please, don't do this. It doesn't make your book look any better, and it just irritates anybody with less than absolutely perfect vision!

  • Second, to the author: In the Basic Body Shape table, on pages 6 through 7, in the Polyhedron sub-table you missed the obvious: the Icosahedron shape should occur on a roll of 20.
