A Review of the Role Playing Game Supplement Knowledge Check: Thieves’ Cant Dictionary

Knowledge Check: Thieves’ Cant Dictionary by Richard D. Bennett and published by Fat Goblin Games is part of their Knowledge Check series of supplements, which are, in according to the publisher, intended to add a little knowledge focusing on one particular aspect.

Unlike the sylvan setting of Springwood Forest, Darkwood is, as the name suggests, rather more dangerous.
