I think Birthright is the most 'mature' product to ever have come out of
TSR. It steers clear of many of the things that have led myself and many
of my friends to ridicule D&D, such as Drow, Elminster, Modrons and
Gelatinous Cubes. The setting is powerful and rich, the races are
interesting and different, and provoke the player into exploring the
nature of the race, rather than just trying to remember how Gimli or
Legolas behaved. It thus attracts a 'better' class of roleplayer, but
then I would think that, wouldn't I?

A Cool Yule to y'all.
