"Every now and then an original d20 fantasy roleplaying game shows its head."
"Valus is not what I would call a standard D&D setting. It's darker, dirtier, and less forgiving than settings like Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms, which are typical high fantasy settings."
Lars Kåre M. Sukka, RPG United
"Valus ... seems to concentrate on portraying deeper and more believable sociology, more focus on people and societies than dungeons and monsters."
Alan D. Kohler, EN World D&D/D20 Reviews
"The setting shows an excellent amount of research and thought ..."
John Grigsby, d20 Magazine Rack
"It offers everything that a GM could want in a setting. It’s different from some mainstream settings in that there aren’t a lot of high-powered NPC’s and literacy isn’t the norm along with early death but the true standout point is the role religion plays not only in the background, but in the current day to day affairs."
JoeGKushner, EN World D&D/D20 Reviews
"Valus may not be high fantasy but it really does seem like a place that can have high adventure. It is also more then a great setting book; Valus is also a very good read."
Crothian non pdf, EN World D&D/D20 Reviews
"This is a pretty fine book, chock full of game-worthy content. Personally, I find it reminiscent of Greyhawk®, in that it is not an easy world for a character to thrive in. However, there are rewards for players who are willing to make the effort. Game masters will have fun with this setting, whether you belong to the “hard-work” school of dungeon mastering or the 'Torquemada' school of player tormenting. At $29.99, it is a decent buy for the money. Take a trip to their website and pick it up."
"An extremely well constructed dark, gritty, realistic world for d20/D&D with a detailed mythology that rivals Harn or Glorantha. In many ways the anti-Eberron of settings."
Jeremy Reaban, RPGnet

"Extremely well written!"
"Valus is that rarest of gaming books that finds a very comfortable niche on the "fluff/crunch" spectrum. The background and history of Ostia Prim is a very rich one, filled with all sorts of fascinating details that mesh wonderfully into a unified whole, and the d20 rules and mechanics that flow from this rich background follow logically and consistently."
John Cooper, EN World D&D/D20 Reviews
"This is good fluff, folks. If you've read Destan's story hour, you know that he can write with the best of 'em."
Joshua Randall, EN World - General RPG Discussion
"Destan's story hour is quite superb, and he has recently published his
campaign setting, Valus, which I've been lucky enough to sneak preview.
