Bedlam City is a grim and gritty setting with a black sense of humor. The book itself is rather large, coming in at 400 pages thoroughly detailing the important parts of the City’s history, neighborhoods, government, culture, crime, villains, and lots more. There is no “Bedlam universe” to work around making it very easy to drop into an existing campaign or easily made to be the focus of one. The few resident heroes are minor and easily dropped.
Liked: The author's warped sense of humor and Bedlam’s heavy flavor makes it feel more like a reoccurring NPC than a campaign setting. Plus its got Hitler's Brain!
Disliked: If you own the adventure “Bedlam in Bedlam” you’ll recognize several sections since they were copied and pasted from it. I was disappointed about this and would have liked a more in-depth review of the various neighborhoods. Some of the villains could have been cut to add this.
Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to inflicting this city on my players.
