DISCLAIMER: PUBLISHED BY THE BRILLIANT GNOMES OF HOUSE SIVIS, THIS ILLUSTRIOUS VOLUME EXPOSES TRUTHS YOU WON’T BELIEVE ABOUT THE LAST WAR! YOU MIGHT THINK THAT’S ENOUGH TO SATISFY YOU, DEAR READER, BUT THERE’S MORE! THE BOOK ALSO CONTAINS DICE-FUELED RULES FOR REENACTING THRILLING EVENTS IN THE WORLD OF EBERRON (DICE NOT INCLUDED). ALSO, DON’T FORGET TO RECHARGE THIS BOOK’S MAGIC WITH A DRAGONSHARD ABOUT ONCE A WEEK. IF YOU DON’T, THE BOOK WILL TURN BACK INTO A POTATO.
Cheer Inside the Covers
Have you ever read the disclaimers at the front of the published WOTC books for Fifth Edition? They make me giggle and usually one of the first things I look for when I purchase a new book.
Every officially published book that I have gotten my hands on the inside cover has had a cute little disclaimer that is based on either the theme of the book or about the cover. The special edition covers also have the disclaimers and a picture of both cover versions. If you only use digital books from D&D Beyond do not despair as at the bottom of source book page (the Players Handbook disclaimer from D&D Beyond is shown in the pic below).
My absolute favorite is from the Monster Manual
It would just be like a Mind Flayer to make us go watch internet cat videos for prolonged periods of time. I'm sure the internet and social media would be a good way to have someone stay willingly still for a good brain snack. Also thank you Mind Flayer for saying that our gamer brains are desirable.
