Around this time last year, I did reviews of the Player’s Handbook (PHB) and Dungeon Master’s Guide (DMG) for 5e Dungeons and Dragons. Examining these books through the lens of racism and fantasy is important, because Dungeons and Dragons is the biggest fantasy game out there, with reach and influence out of proportion for a simple collection of game books they are by any standard. At the time, there was a rumour floating about that implied that there would be no campaign setting book for Faerȗn, the new default game setting better recognized as Forgotten Realms. This turned out to be a half truth. As opposed to a single book, it appears that Wizards of the Coast (WotC) will instead be releasing a series of books instead, and the first was released in early November. So it’s time to take an in depth look at the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide!
