Format: Paperback
It's hard to explain just how much treasure is buried betweenthese covers. You get ...pages of information on the intriguingworld of Mystara - perfectly supplementing the Gazeteer series withexclusive information! Highlights include: Maps of the world, the location, government, resources, descriptions, histories, monsters, and famous personages of every realm, detailed breakdowns of every major army and navy in the world, complete with stats; biographies and stats on every major ruler; and best of all, ...pages of adventure hooks, set throughout the calendar year of 1010! It's the most complete, easy way to begin a spectacular campaign in the world of Mystara, for D&D or AD&D. By legendary "Hollow World" writer Aaron Allston.

A nice extension to the regular Gazetteer series. Heavy on details and has the overall look and feel of a true almanac.

Format: Paperback
Poor Wizard's Almanac tries to tie together all of the nations of the D&D campaign world into one easily digestible work, but with poor results. This book lists nations on one-by-one basis, dealing with each in an extremely limited way (listings include only the basic geography, customs, army size, and major sites. No maps of any sort are included for the small-scale locations, although they would be appreciated). Further on, the world history is dealt with on an event-by-event basis, leading to a section describing the current status of all things. The listings are quite disorganized and can be quite confusing, and while they provide some amount of flavor to the campaign, most of the data is generic (and unnecessary) filler.
This handbook is not the most useful or interesting. Either buy one of the more specific works, or use your imagination.
