"Hyboria, in Northern Brun is one of the least
known areas of Mystara and there is very
little information available in more-or-less
official accessories or on the web. The Hyboria Gazetteer By Omnibius covers the vast stretch of icy Sword & Sorcery wasteland & its environs. "
Sometimes one finds Sword & Sorcery goodness in some most unexpected places. Case in point tonight we stumbled upon a Free English translation of the Italian fans of Mystara's Hyboria region on the Piazza website & forum. So tonight between game sessions the printer was going burr getting this lovely piece of Mystara goodness into our greedy little hands.
Now I can already hear the bitching. What another Gazetter guide book for Mystara?! And its a fan one!? Who cares?! We'll lots of folks actually care & this section of Mystara is almost unknown outside of many of the Mystara fan forums. The Hyboria Gazetteer clocks in at twenty pages of crammed regional goodness information with several key sources of information drawn into its sections. The whole cloth book feels very professionally done, with some solid cartography, goodlay out & some smoking sections of Mystara goodness.
So is the Hyboria Gazetteer worth the trouble to down load it?! In a word yes! The reason for me saying this is that in twenty pages the Hyboria Gazetteer manages to squeeze out every Sword & Sorcery goodness & regional secret that we need for this area of icy Mystara.
You've got each of the regions of Hyboria broked down & explained including how these regions interact, make war, devide the burden of this area among the clans & families and much more. In twenty pages you get just about everything you need to start adventuring within Hyboria.
