This quite a tremendous book. I've been playing a variety of RPGs since 1980, and love these little books of themed tables. I've no shortage of imagination of my own, but books like this are a great springboard for ideas. The Wilderness Alphabet contains a number of topics and tables based on the ideas of things you'd find in the wilderness. Each table gives a quick reference for when you're riffing on the players wandering 'off the track' of the adventure you have planned. Further, it could be a great resource for detailing adventures before play, as well. There are no system-specific rules for any of the material within the Wilderness Alphabet. Indeed, many of the strange things encountered are given no explanation. For example, in the "Archways" table, you might come across a strange archway filled with mist. The book doesn't tell you anything more, which I find excellent. It gives you the initial idea, and then leaves it up to you to explore. Physically, the book is very... More > nice. It's a little digest-sized paperback, easy to toss into your 'GM's toolkit' along with your dice and other paraphernalia. The art is mostly public domain, but well-used. You can't argue with the classics. Great book, and deserves to have a spot at every GM's table.< Less
