DNA - The Buried Zikurat OSR Adventure Originally posted: http://punverse.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-buried-zikurat.html-
Overview: The Buried Zikurat is the second part of Kevin Watson\'s Haunting of Hastur series. It\'s for a party of characters level 6-8. It has an implied setting, but is easy to import into any game. A zikarut has been discovered by a clay mining operation and the pc\'s are hired to investigate. Layout: Each room of the zikarut is presented in a simple and useful layout like this: Number - Name of Room Ingress/Egress: how to get in and out of the room and where it leads Description: Detailed description for the DM. Players: Descriptions for players: Lore: History of the room. Not all room descriptions feature this. Crunchy Bits: 1 new monster (Nexus Guardian), 1 new spell (Destroy Stone), 3 new magic items (Boots of Formene, Cloak of Formene, Ring of Elvenkind) Thoughts: This adventure is full of puzzles/riddles. This is a nice change of pace from most published adventures I see, which ...

Nations of Théah: Avalon (Book 2)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 01/16/2017 08:51:47
Nations of Théah: Avalon (Book 2) Avalon, the 7th Sea analogue to Britain, is a place of myths and magic, a land where the Sidhe still dwell, a race older than human beings but dwindling now. It\'s made up of three kingdoms - Alvalon, the Highland Marches and Inismore - but all hold the glamour, the mystical nature of ancient Celtic lands. Avalon is a beautiful and terrifying place, legend woven through the fabric of reality. Chapter 1: The Glamour Isles is the main part of the book, jam-packed with detail on the history (or is that legends?) upon which present-day Avalon is built, beginning with the Sidhe. The islands were united under a single monarch early on, the first king being presented by the Sidhe with an artefact - the Graal - which he was told would provide protection and blessings. Indeed it did until one king in 1028 who had three sons divided the kingdom between them instead of nominating one to succeed him. One son protested and was banished for his pains, the other two fought each other to a standsti...

Past Lives: Secrets of Reincarnation

Past Lives: Secrets of Reincarnation An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 23 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! Reincarnation in d20 and its derivatives, ultimately (and undeservedly so) often boils down in relevance to being a subpar version of returning the dead to live and a plot contrivance. This pdf\'s mission-statement is to change this. Formatting-wise, this is achieved via the introduction of a so-called past-life profile - and no, that is NO chosen by the player. A past life profile conveys a series of bonuses to a respective PC at certain levels - this is represented in certain abilities gained, etc. While the design-goal is that of a net-gain, each past life also has an accompanying disadvantage stemming from the experiences of said existence. The unifying downside of the past life profile is that spells that return the dead from ...

Campaign Backdrop: Marshes & Swamps An Endzeitgeist.com review This installation of the helpful environmental toolkit-compilations by Raging Swan Press clocks in at 87 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisements, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page stat blocks by CR, 2 pages of author bios, 1 page of advice for reading statblocks for novice GMs, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 76 pages of raw content, so let\'s take a look! Taking a cue from Raging Swan Press\' other, no less intriguing compilation books, this one features a table of all statblocks used herein by CR (spanning the range from CR 1/4 to 10) with accompanying page numbers and, as a nice service to the talented authors involved, we get a page of author bios, which is great to see. But what is this? Well, the short answer, as already hinted at, is that this is basically a toolbox for a specific type of terrain, namely the swamps and marshes. Where other Raging Swan Press collections for example collected the significant am...

Ultimate Occult

Ultimate Occult An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive sourcebook clocks in at 150 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 145 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! So, what is this? This book basically represents a take on psionics, one that re-envisions it as using the psychic magic system. Basically, it lets you use psionics in a game that doesn\'t, for whatever reasons, allow the use of Dreamscarred Press\' superb Ultimate Psionics. This endeavor is based, in short, on three base classes: The Mentalist gets d6 HD, 2 + Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons, 1/2 BAB-progression, good Will-saves and Intelligence-governed prepared psychic spellcasting of up to 9th level. Instead of having a preconfigured spell-list, they receive two psychic spheres (the analogues to psionic disciplines), +1 at 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter -starting at 2nd level, one spell per spell level that is associ...

E-Z DUNGEONS: Deluxe Edition

Publisher: Fat Dragon Games

E-Z DUNGEONS: Deluxe Edition This was a worthwhile buy. I play a lot of D&D, but I don\'t usually build my own terrain--when I do, it\'s basic stuff, and shabby-looking. This set had really clear instructions so even a first-timer like me could put together some legit-looking scenery. It\'s enough to make a complete dungeon, although there are more advanced sets for unique pieces. For the best experience, I recommend getting white cardstock, super glue, and a glue accelerant.

INDEX CARD RPG Vol. 1 I love the concept of the cards! I watched the YouTube video first. I run a high school level group. Tonight each person was dealt 3 cards. Played the cards at the beginning of the round. It was hilarious. Only criticism is there were a couple of cards with no close rpg equivalent. The kids struggled with that. It was great fun using them. Good filler. I would buy another set. A volume 2.

Savage Worlds Deluxe

Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 01/16/2017 00:41:10
Savage Worlds Deluxe If you are looking for a simple yet not simplistic universal rules system that gives you plenty of tactical crunch for you combat; this is it. If you love using polyhedral dice definitely the game you want. If you are tired of getting stuck in a class based advancement system this is worth the price of admission. This game system came out of a mix of the very detailed Deadlands and a table top game called the Great Railwars. The designers used the experience gained from the above mentioned games and came up with a streamlined rules system that covers a lot of ground and presently has dozens of settings. This game is for gamers who like to push miniatures around on the table top, but don\'t want to spend an hour fighting a battle between a half dozen figures. I have consistenly been able to run combats with in excess of 2 dozen figures in a half hour or less. The action is Fast, Fun, and Furious. A great game for grognards and neophytes alike. ...

OneDice Universal

Publisher: Cakebread & Walton
Date Added: 01/16/2017 00:15:08
OneDice Universal Simplistic not simple. I can\'t imagine why anyone...including myself spent money on this. I checked out the quickstart. I for some reason thought that there had to be crunchier rules in the actual settings/universal rules...there aren\'t. No ranged combat. Even though weapons are given ranges. I figure the GM is supposed to SWAG that. Since it appears that despite PCs having a movement rating there seems to be no apparent reason given for having one. No rules for covering distances on foot at all. No rules for cover. Although the GM can arbitrarily determine if a roll has advantage or disadvantage. This book has no setting, but costs as much or more than the setting books. Here\'s the catch the setting books have the same set of minimal rules in them. I bought this Universal set of rules on sale for a little over 5 USD. Each setting book is regularly 7 USD. You can get the entire Fate Core set of rules and Fate Accelerated, over 400+pages of complete rules, for pay as you want. Yo...
