Very much looking forward to this new games shop only D&D book focusing on new magic items and other cool gear - hopefully Orc's Nest will have it soon. The art gallery is up on the WotC site and is looks great. A few things in particularl caught my eye....

Looks like ioun stones are back in 4e at last:

I think Wayne England is brilliant at drawing magic items:

Never thought I'd see magic beans in D&D but looks like they're in the book:

Ioun Stones were back in 4E in the PHB- only one in there, but four were added in Adventurer's Vault, and I think some more in the AV2. Mordenkainen's repeats one from AV, then adds a rare, 21 stone for each ability. Being head items, you can only have one in orbit though, so no replicating the picture or the satellites of earlier editions, but they're still pretty potent.

I don't think the Bag of Beans returns (it was an item in 1E and 2E); the beanstalk comes out of the story item section. For random, wacky items, the Wand of Wonder does show up.

It's a very nice book, and the rarity system has allowed the designers to come up with items that aren't trying to be entirely balanced.

Cheers! Had clearly missed the ioun stones in the 4e PH and the bag of beans!

Glad to hear the quality of the text lives up to that of the art. There may have been relatively few new D&D products this year but those we've had have been jolly good.
