I don't see a topic for this book on The Piazza yet. (There isn't even a page in The Book-House on The Piazza yet. I'll have to fix that later. EDIT: I've just added a Hammerfast: A Dwarven Outpost Adventure Site page to the Book-House on The Piazza and added three reviews to it.) I see this description on the Amazon page for Hammerfast: A Dwarven Outpost Adventure Site:
Hammerfast: A Dwarven Outpost Adventure Site (4th Edition D&D) Paperback – March 16, 2010
by Mike Mearls
A ready-to-use adventure location for any D&D® campaign...
Need an exciting adventure location for your heroes to explore? Look no further.
Hammerfast presents a fully detailed, ready-to-use dwarven town, complete with secret locations, maps, adventure hooks, monster and NPC statistics, ready-to-play encounters, and a full-color, double-sided battle map. The book is perfect for Dungeon Masters looking for an intrigue-laden adventure location that fits instantly and easily into their existing D&D campaigns.
The dwarven outpost of Hammerfast is described in the Dungeon Master’s Guide® core rulebook and gets mentioned often in D&D published adventures. However, this is the first time the town has been fully detailed. In addition to an adventure location, Hammerfast can serve as the base of operations for characters exploring Nentir Vale.
Does anyone have this book? How much detail does it give on Hammerfast? How much extra information does it give over and above the DMG? (Is there anything in the DMG that isn't mentioned in this book?) Is there a lot of information about how Hammerfast fits into the Nentir Vale setting? Does it provide a lot of information that makes it good as a generic dwarven book for 4th Edition?
Is there anything different about the dwarves of Hammerfast and dwarves in other D&D products?
How easy would it be to raid from this book and to use Hammerfast to help provide inspiration for other dwarven settlements (both inside and outside the Nentir Vale setting)?
How many other Nentir Vale/4e products have links to Hammerfast?
