Surprise Round - Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden

In this episode Jeff sits down with Brandes Stoddard and Enrique Bertran (a.k.a. NewbieDM) to give a brief first-look review of the newest D&D release, Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. This is the second episode in a new format for reviews - it features a timely review that is not in as much depth as a typical Tome Show review. The idea is to give this first look and then come back later for a more standard Tome Show in-depth review after everyone has had time to read and play with the material in the book. We hope you enjoy this new format!
