But this information can largely be summarised by the set of tables that are found at the end of the book. I like ruling rather than rules, stuff that makes sense at the time we do it. I’d certainly recommend the Wilderness Survival Guide. It also has a sweet little section on running games in general a sort of precursor to the kind of material that is in Robin’s Laws of GMing and the 3e DMG2 that crystallised many vague concepts into solid advice.


Looking for a good wilderness-type adventure The book was repackaged with a totally new book of adventures, called Wild Thingsand released inas a way to get rid of excess copies of the first edition of Wilderness Survival Guide.

A secondary skill roll gave you a bit of character background. Much of the stuff in the DSG was reworked and expanded in the excellent 2e book Campaign Sourcebook and Catacomb Guideso if you have that there is less value to the DSG, but it gets my vote nevertheless.

It’s got some great adventure locations and predates the hostile FR underdark takeover. Obviously this can either be tailored to race or campaign or you could just reroll results you find inappropriate to your setting or race, but most people don’t bother in my experience and just ignore their secondary skill if it turns out to be something they don’t care about.


To me it felt like I had just bought a large collection of weather tables, and I rarely ever referred back to the main text itself. Need to know how a forest fire spreads? The WSG has a level of detail that the 3. Tuesday, 31st December, Join Date Sep Location brink of total screaming madness Posts 6, Even the art in this book felt rushed to me.
