I just didn't warm to Essentials at all. Mind you, I only accessed it as electronic on D&D Beyond, maybe it's better in a box.

One of the good points about the Essentials Kit is you get some extra stuff online at D&D Beyond with it, IIRC. As well the (limited) character generation rules and the sidekick rules for 1-1 and small group games.

And lots of useful cards with box. And a screen. And a map. And the Beyond material to expand. Plus rules to Level 6 and a decent adventure.

Whereas the starter set has some uninspiring characters (in how they look), less complete rules and a decent adventure. And the box is padded with a spacer. And it’s £15 vs £20.

Essentials is a modern take on Basic D&D.
 
I lay the blame squarely at the door of First Age's grotto, but I am delving into Ironsworn (I did win a preview copy at a Garricon).
The game mechanics are clean, the art style is evocative and sharp in crisp black and white cosplay (plus the models easy on the eyes).

At the threshold... and ready to delve...

I like digest books, I am resisting the Kobold Press Tome of Beasts in digest. I don't need it, I just like bestiaries and digest books!
I also thought that Gods and Magic looked good. I'd love to play the Rise of the Runelords one day.. have they PF2-ed it yet?
