This week on the Vintage RPG podcast we check out Book of Vile Darkness (2002), D&D 3E's super edgy overcorrection of the family friendly 90s era. It's kinda weird! You'd think after decades of criticism about how D&D was a tool of the devil, you wouldn't go and put out a book that A. is of limited utility to most games and B. makes the critics' case for them. It's still pretty cool, if you dig demons and devils, and can look past all the torture and stuff.
