Acquisitions Incorporated Review for D&D 5th

First let me confess that at one point I watched a good deal of the live show this material is based on.  But with the departure of Chis Perkins who really was a great comic straight man and DM I have lost interest in the series. So I was sort of the audience for this book like a year or 2 ago.  But with the growth of D&D and most of the new players exposure coming from show like Acquisitions Incorporated this book seems like a no brainer for Wizards of the Coast.

So the concept of Acquisitions Incorporated is Adventuring group as Corporation with a Comic twist.  Think The Office with swords. While the concept of adventuring group as a guild or company or guild is older than D&D.  I think this concept has potential for a solid campaign setting.

This book contains a campaign to take characters from level 1 to 6 based on the idea that the players are starting a new Franchise of Acquisitions Incorporated with the characters gaining a level each chapter instead of the carrot on a stick XP. Which I like and it makes sure that the campaign moves at a decent clip. The adventures are pretty good but mostly standard fair find the pieces of an Artifact that is can destroy the world before someone that wants to use it for evil.  I think what separates this from just your run of the mill Fantasy game is the downtime activities to help you build your franchise, live in the town, or investigate the mystery.

There is a section to help you build characters for this game and these are a new path for a City Barbarian, character backgrounds, race, and spells. The City barbarian is interesting as a kind of mob enforcer and the Spells have a new component type where every time you cast it  the original creator gets a gold.

Humor elements and the characters of the show are woven into the DNA of this book but is not as intrusive as you would think. This book is dense new people that pick this up expecting to be laughing as much as watching the show will probably be disappointed as this book is good fan service but lacks what makes the show any good the people that bring it to life and fails to transcend to something more.
