I have to say that this is one of the better DM-only fluff books to come out of 4e. It concentrates heavily on the movers and shakers of the Underdark, including kuo-toa, aboleths, beholders, mind flayers and drow. It delves into the monster and societies of the Shadowdark and Feydark and offers enough strong plot hooks to fill several campaigns. The writing is clear and crisp and the new monsters are fun (and the stats can be found on the DDI). I was wondering at first how this book would differ from all the other 3rd edition books on the same subject, but it treads quite a bit of new ground and is just fun to read. Thumbs up.

Underdark, like most D&D 4th Edition books, is well-crafted and tightly written, with excellent production values and superb graphic design. The contents of the book include chapters on the general features of underground exploration, the Shallows (the upper parts of the underdark), the Deeps, the Shadowdark and the Feydark, plus an appendix of new monsters.

The Underdark has been detailed in many previous D&D supplements before, of course, but here we see the classic underground themes being forcefully shoe-horned into the rather odd cosmology of 4th Edition, with a heretofore unknown god called Torog becoming the centre of the whole demesne, for some unknown reason. Lolth is still present, but the entire metaphysical and physical structure of the Underdark now revolves around a new god of imprisonment and torture. Even the terrain features, such as godsblood, the King's Highway and godstone, are from Torog. The writers tie the Far Realm ever more strongly to the Mind Flayers, Aboleths and deeps of the Underdark, which works well but runs the risk of repetition.

The sections on the Shadowdark (a name so ridiculous is should have been laughed out of the design stage) and the Feydark are rather thin and make the superficial separation of these realms rather pointless. Still, DMs are free to construct the geography of the Underdark on their own, as there are no maps of the whole place as there were in the excellent 3.5E version of the Underdark.

Large chunks of the book are devoted to mini-adventures (dungeon delves) which are finely-tuned and well constructed...if you like tactical miniatures skirmishes. Which I don't, but I won't fault the game here because that's an intentional design choice in 4E.

Loved it. A great companion to the newly released Menzoberranzan book this year. Perfect even for DMs and players not so much fans of Underdark campaigns. It at least gives great ideas from where you can create new adventures.

Horror, madness, danger, and FUN!

The Underdark has long been one of the coolest, spookiest features of D&D and Forgotten realms settings, and this book is no exception.

If you are a fan of the denizens of the deep, or just want to throw your players up against these foul creatures, this book provides a lot of fun adventure hooks and color to a campaign. One of my particular favorite aspects of the book, is giving background and history to The World Below by providing a history of its creation by a fallen god and his battle with an ancient primordial for domination of this new world. This does a great deal to explain why this world has been bursting with magic and otherworldly weirdness since it was first described in early editions of D&D.

At long last the creation, development, and details of the Underdark have been laid out--and in true 4th edition style PLENTY of fun open-ended ways to make this story your own. The detail that is going into these books and supplements is inspiring, and is not only helpful for creating an adventure or campaign--but just a fun read as well.

Get this book, but BEWARE the underdark will eat you alive if you are not ready for it. Tread softly and only bring sufficiently prepared or powerful heroes into this dark world, or they might end up food for He Who Crawls...

I'm pretty excited to make my party fight mindflayers and stuff. It does a great job of laying out possible sequences of events without limiting your creativity.
