From the minds behind Düngeonmeister, The Düngeonmeister Cookbook, and A Dragon Walks Into A Bar, a new challenge awaits: coloring! Authors Jef Aldrich and Jon Taylor have penned an all-new series of encounters for your favorite role-playing game module. It’s called The Düngeonmeister Goblin Quest Coloring Book, and we got a review copy from Adams Media and Simon & Schuster; here’s what we think!
The Düngeonmeister Goblin Quest Coloring Book Is Free-Form, And That’s Okay!
One of the first things we noticed when opening the pages of The Düngeonmeister Goblin Quest Coloring Book was pretty important. We saw that while it had many different illustrated pages (as a coloring book should), it didn’t have a ton of guidelines. I, personally, am more than okay with this as it leaves plenty of room for the Game Master’s imagination to shine through. Just as the pages are uncolored, the module is practically unpopulated with anything beyond the bones of a few encounters. But this isn’t a bad thing!
As for the content itself, it’s a pretty typical fantasy plotline. It contains goblins, ogres, and even something even stronger at the very end. The pages do reflect only scenes as well as maps, and no character images (for either PCs or NPCs). However, this should suffice for anyone who wants, again, to populate the story with the color of a good narrative.
The material comprising this coloring book is good. Its pages are fairly thick, so pose no likely risk of tearing unless desired. The cover is satin-textured with a few gloss embellishments where aesthetically pleasing. Despite being paperback, it holds up especially sturdily.
Our Verdict of The Düngeonmeister Goblin Quest Coloring Book
The Düngeonmeister Goblin Quest Coloring Book is a top-notch coloring book for any RPG-loving gamer. This book falls in line with other coloring books we’ve reviewed on this site and does the job well. What’s more, it creates a series of encounters that are sure to entice players into taking their markers to the pages and having a great time. We really like this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to delve into fantasy RPGs.
