"This is just the sort of high quality work that should be spotlighted in today's glut of mediocrity."
"Various plot hooks and near-by ruins ensure that a GM has plenty to throw against a party of players and the village includes nearly everything a party needs to gain experience and equipment."
d20 Magazine Rack
"...what makes The Village of Briarton such a surprise is that it's a compact, high-quality item, and in an industry choking on d20 products, that can be more than enough."
Open Gaming Exchange
"Definitely a product that GMs would find very useful. There aren't enough things like this for a GM to use out there. Villages...that can be easily plugged into any fantasy campaign setting are sorely lacking in the d20 market."
Anna M. Dobritt RPG Freelancers Guide
"I particularly like the inclusion of a home and hearth deity. These were far more common historically than they seem to be in role-playing products and add some verisimilitude to the setting."
"If I wanted to start characters as being from a specific place, I would want to start in Briarton, because then I have a ready-made place to adventure from that I can actually make come alive for players."
"...no published module provides such a well-detailed base of operations, an essential ingredient in an ongoing campaign. Village of Briarton goes beyond the majority of town and village resources. There's no better village supplement currently on the market."
