Cugel's Compendium of Indispensable Advantages is exactly that -- a solid, but slim volume of all things useful in enhancing the basic game of The Dying Earth RPG. It is especially useful for Cugel-level games, though there is nothing to stop more powerful characters perusing its contents. Further, its concentration upon the pettifogger, the con artist or trickster, pettifogger, swindler, fraudster, shyster and the like, means that it becomes a useful fund of information upon a subject that few games cover --Matthew Pook, rpg.net
