B2 The Keep on the Borderlands (Basic)
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by Estel-Lia T. [Verified Purchaser]

This is a great introductory module to Basic D&D and B/X in general. I would have loved to give the POD version a higher score, but sadly, the map for the Caves of Chaos appears to be printed all the way down to the spine, and given the binding of the book, a part of the map impossible to read unless you almost break the book by opening way too wide. Another issue I encountered is with the reference sheet just before page 15; both sides of the reference seem to have the printing cut off at the bottom. Thus on the first reference sheet page, the word "Shield" in the armor section is cut off and the information below "Shield", as well as the section underneath "Wooden Pole" on the right column are missing from the POD. Similarly, on the other page of the reference sheet, the last few lines of the wandering monsters (rolls of 18 to 20) are cut off and missing. Surprisingly, this is not an issue in the PDF.

Due to those choices regarding the map for the Caves of Chaos, and the printing errors for the reference sheet, I can't rate this higher than 3/5. The module is still useable, but for your own sake do not buy the POD alone, and get the PDF alongside it to print the complete reference sheet and a useable map for the Caves.

GAZ1 The Grand Duchy of Karameikos (Basic)

I'd rate this 5 stars if PODs came with foldout maps. As it is, this is a very good reprint of the legendary GAZ1, but the map being printed on several pages makes it slightly less useful. To make matters worse, the JPGs included in the ZIP file from the files in the digital version don't line up perfectly together, so printing each page of the hi-res JPG files separately will still not give you a 100% facsimile of the original. It's a shame.

B1 In Search of the Unknown (Basic)

Bought the POD. A word of warning, you'll want better maps. The ones in the POD are exactly the same as those in the PDF as of 7/25/22 (no surprise though), so they are blurry and while not unreadable, aren't exactly great either. I'd suggest finding some alternate versions of the maps online, even though I wish the team in charge of document scans at WOTC would do a better job with it. The book itself is fine. The text is slightly faded, but perfectly readable. Still cheaper than trying to find the original in perfect shape on eBay.
