...if you or your group is new to D&D, Into the Unknown would be a great addition to your library. For everyone else, you’re not throwing your money away but you’ll get most of the benefit this book has to offer you in the character builder.

Synopsis

D&D ENCOUNTERS SUPPORT: This product supports the D&D Encounters in-store play program by providing Dungeons & Dragons players with exciting new options for their D&D Encounters characters. The player material in this book is also suitable for home game use.

CHARACTER THEMES: This book presents several new character themes tied to dungeon exploration. Themes are popular with Dungeons & Dragons players, as they provide more depth to each character's back story and provide intriguing in-game benefits.

This book also includes advice for Dungeon Masters on how to integrate character themes into an ongoing campaign that features dungeons and other subterranean environments, as well as dungeon-building tips.
This product has tangential ties to the drow-themed marketing campaign.

...if you turn to supplements like this for more than the numbers – for things like quest ideas, character motivations and new settings – then Into the Unknown deserves a spot on your D&D shelf.

Even if 4e isn’t your D&D edition of choice, there’s a lot of great ideas in this book that can be used by any DM. It’s very friendly to any fantasy RPG of choice...

While I can’t exactly call Into the Unknown: The Dungeon Survival Handbook a disappointment - because there is quite a bit of cool material here - I nevertheless came away from reading the book, well, disappointed as a Dungeon Master.

The supplement is a useful guide for players and Dungeon Masters alike as well as even being an interesting read for those of us not firmly familiar with the 4th Edition of the rules.

...if you're a 4e player, this book once again gives you plenty of new material that can be used in the current Encounters season, which is a great benefit... For DM's I'd put this book up there with Neverwinter as being an essential purchase for its advice on how to build better adventures.

While the player section is a blast, I think the DM’s section is the best part of the book...There’s a sense of completion here that I just don’t think they’re going to be able to beat.
