Echelon Explorations: Polyhedral Pantheons An Endzeitgeist.com review This supplement clocks in at 42 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages blank after ToC and SRD, respectively (odd), 1 page back cover, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page reading "appendices" before the SRD, leaving us with 33 pages of content, so let's take a look! This was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, what is this? Well, have you read Rose of the Prophet? No, well, all right: Basically, it is a system that defines deities and their values, if you will, as an interconnected geometrical shape - which also, by virtue of connections, situates neutral deities as a mix of good and evil -it is basically a way to generate a spatially-consistent model of a pantheon's abstract interactions and, by its spatial depiction, of contextualizing the deities thus. We have a system for pantheon-creation on our hands here, and one that has an intrinsic value as far as I'm concerned, but we...

Everyman Minis: The Skinsuit Ritual

Everyman Minis: The Skinsuit Ritual An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Everyman Gaming's minis-series clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let's take a look! Okay, so first things first: This is an occult ritual. I assume that you have Occult Adventures on hand (If not...why?? It's literally one of the best books Paizo has ever made!) and thus know how occult rituals work. All righty, so, the ritual herein would be a level 8 and represents an evil polymorph effect. As befitting of a proper ritual, the materials required are delightfully exotic: Living steel buttons? hag's hair twine and boiled calamus root, licorice and lilacs? A sewing needle made from keketar bones? HECK YES, this breathes flavor in the components/focus line - big time. So, backlash is deadly - the ritual causes the hapless caster's skin to slough off...oh, and if you botch it, you may well be transformed by the 4d6 Cha drain into a doppelgänger. The ...

The Ytroth Larvae of the Scarsea Cliffs

The Ytroth Larvae of the Scarsea Cliffs An Endzeitgeist.com review This module is system-neutral and clocks in at 2 pages - all content. Structure-wise, we have a basic 3 locations - each of which sports a brief read-aloud text, a more detailed elaboration of the respective area and then a couple of different dangers that the GM can use. Creatures are explained, with notes like "medium damage, high health", notes on "moves" and "impulses." Additionally, each of the 3 sections sports sample treasures (using gold standard, just fyi). All right, and this would be as far as I can go sans going into SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. ... .. . All right, only referees around? Great! Let me paraphrase a part of the setting the scene section: "To the South there are twisting, jagged ravines covering the barren earth like lashes on the back of a whipped prisoner. The lands provide no crops or lumber...[...]...Crawling up from the bowels of the earth are the chitinous and undulating Ytrot...

Extrastellar Set One: Space Adventurers A great set of sci-fi themed paper minis. I love the variety of characters both *civilian* and *military*, including space sword wielders, *robots* and *aliens*. Looking forward to use them in many scenarios far, far away :-)

Ninth World Bestiary 2

Ninth World Bestiary 2 This is a great addition with lots of new enemies to add to the game. I would give this a perfect score except my main gripe is they include some beasties from previous publications. It would have been nice to use that space for new creatures instead. Otherwise, I find this bestiary better than the first one.

Asian Archetypes: Magical
by Vladimir C.
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 05/28/2017 17:58:27
Asian Archetypes: Magical DISCLAIMER: This review is based on a free PDF provided by the author and the publisher, which in no way had an influence on the final score. Asian Archetypes: Magical is the second archetype book in LG’s Far East product line. Like its companion book, it covers a wide range of arcane and divine magical classes (11 to be exact), including even a paladin and a bloodrager one. As always with LG, their books include awesome full color art and handy electronic features. By the way, the title for my review comes from random words spoken by a kung fu movie spellcaster LOL! What’s inside? Not counting covers, ads, index etc., 21 pages of juicy, crunchy content, which include: -14 Archetypes for 11 classes: Bodhisattva Paladins can be of any good alignment. They are better at magic and their abilities are more heavenly in origin, an example being their lay on hands hurting fiends and their spawn instead of undead, and their channeled energy getting more righteous options. They can...

The First 100 Days - A Presidential Fiasco Playset A hilarious political cartoon in the form of a Fiasco playset. Even just as a read it's worth $3 easily. I will definitely be playing this soon.

Vergogne - City of Romance
by Jonathan S.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 05/28/2017 13:02:57
Vergogne - City of Romance Okay, first off, the pictures that Andrew selected for this that are not from the free resources from DriveThruRPG are spot-on perfect. Much of the product is devoted to the fleshing out of Vergogne, both its history and how being Theah's romance capital affects day-to-day life for the residents and travelers. I have to say, this is a very interesting setting, and could be easily used as a focal point for a campaign, even if the Heroes are not currently in the romance market themselves. The bit on local festivals and people of interest provides some great story hooks for GMs to build a Story around. In terms of game mechanics, there's very little in the way of crunch to be had, which is perfectly fine. Andrew did update his work on fashion from the 1e web supplement Noblesse Oblige, discussing the basics of how clothing is worn in Theah, who generally sets the fashion trends, as well as a breakdown of the different articles of clothing worn by men and women and the degrees of ...

The Red Isle

Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 05/28/2017 10:33:54
The Red Isle Throw this adventure in sometime that the party is taking a long sea voyage... it's easy to drop it into any campaign as it is based on a remote and rarely-visited island. The DM's Background explains the situation in which the party will find themselves and provides a neat way for them to hear at least a little of this information: the captain of the ship they are on likes telling tales of an evening! It all begins with a shipwreck. The characters wake up on what appears to be a remote and deserted island. This survival situation turns into a delve as a long-lost pirate lair is discovered and (presumably) explored. The pirate captain was a bit paranoid, so it's quite well defended, not to mention other creatures that have moved in. There's a clear plan of the lair, presented as a side elevation (it makes more sense that way, but is nicely-done) and each location therein is described in detail, with what (and who) is to be found there and all you need to run the ensuing combat. And ...

Entartete Kunst

Entartete Kunst A parody of obtuse and self-important game design; it's as if Andy Warhol wrote an RPG. Not a game in any meaningful sense of the word, but mildly amusing. I don't regret the buck I spent on it.

Ponyfinder - Character Sheet
by Leanne C.
Publisher: Silver Games LLC
Date Added: 05/28/2017 07:46:01
Ponyfinder - Character Sheet I'm sorry i cant recommend it, the layout is good, it covers everything you need with plenty of room to write all stats and abilities. I have no complaint having a detailed 6 page character sheet, but the color is too dark for printing in black and white and hard to adjust in photo editing programs such as Photoshop. When you are needing to print multiple copies all the time, printing in color, while it would solve the darkness issue, is simply not practical. For my campaign I think I'll just make my own sheets. Will edit my review if this is changed at any point....

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) Travis did an amazing job of making a very small foe a HUGE one in regards to game difficulty. The map, the way kobolds attack player characters, the way traps are made and the way actual monsters work is pure enjoyment. However to be honest the final encounter is a slight overkill. If not for a guideline of Twin-Casted Haste, the final boss can just throw 2 fireballs on a tier-1 party and finish it with little problem. You have to read that guidance if you want your players to have a chance of winning....

DDAL05-16 Parnast Under Siege (5e) This is a unique module in that it can be run as a mini-epic. In fact it was seemed to be designed as such thus it is recommended you do so in order to fully appreciate it. I ran this for a three-person party of tier 1s and I had no choice but to cut out the part of the cave encounters in order to make it finish within the recommended 4 hours. The mechanices of the final encounter with Bad Fruul's siege was fun as it showed some tangible rewards from the PCs' efforts. The whole storyline for the Tier 1 quests though seemed a bit disjointed with this module doing its best to patch it up together into something coherent....

Date Added: 05/28/2017 01:04:37
DDAL05-09 Durlag's Tomb (5e) Now if Durlag's Tower was a sandbox, you don't get any more linear than Durlag's Tomb. This is a straight-up classic dungeon crawl, with little to no RP social encounters and puzzles, and a greater emphasis on combat, traps, and do or die skill checks. And again, you also have that annoying special stone mechanic that makes your teleportation and planar travel wonky as hell. But I get the idea behind the design choices, because death traps and such are one of the few reliable ways of providing a possible challenge to high level parties....
