The Complete Ninjas Handbook

Post by Havard » Wed Nov 08, 2017 4:05 pm

I think the main reason why I ended up getting this book is because it was written by Aaron Allston. I do remember someone playing a Ninja type character in an AD&D 2d Ed Ravenloft Campaign I played in at some point, but I don't remember if he actually used the Complete Ninja's Handbook for his character.

Has anyone used this sourcebook?

I have not used it, but I am planning to at some point. Some day. I want to run an rogue campaign in Al-Qadim.

I like the variation from the thief subclass. I find the kits flavorful. The martial arts rules are a little confusing, and some reviewers consider them overpowered.

The forum has a lengthy [Let's Read] The Complete Ninja's Handbook thread.

I have it but I've never used it in play as a character or a GM.
