Look in the discussion area for my in-depth review. This is a great supplement with no major flaws. There are a number of minor ways they could improve it and make it even better. It's a solid 4 stars, and it definitely is worth five bucks.
Are you in need of a dungeon of epic proportions but one that will challenge your low level adventurers, the lair and background of the adventure might need a bit of work and heavy modification for use with a game such as Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea. There are some heavily Lovecraftian elements of sword and sorcery fun that make this one a snap to use. But for a game such as AS&SH some liberties might need to be take to add in the elements of Hyperborea. In this case the goblins might need to be switched out for primitive humans or some such. Is this worth the trouble? In a word yes. Because this adventure has a epic mini dungeon feel to it with some classic OD&D such as the brigands and the monsters of the adventure location.
There are some solid elements to this adventure that border on the horrific and foulness of a Marvel 1970's sword and sorcery comic book with some seriously wonderful twisted pulp elements making this adventure a nice addition to a Realms o...
This is a wonderful toolkit for building a RPG campaign (or region within) that will be identifiable but unique compared to others familiar with the same setting. It's wonderful, yeah I said that already but that's because it is. The author does more to present adventures an camapign building with a few paragraphs and a couple tables than one will find in entire published lines of books and this book itself is a good meaty tome.
It's evocative and illustrative without locking one into specific canon or a preconceived notions of what a campaign setting is supposed to look like (maybe it has redefined that notion)....
This collection of disturbing beasts defiled all other monster manuals, devoured them alive, and then vomited their digested remains into new quivering forms. I'm glad this tomb of messed up creatures is now in my hands. Great Stuff!!!
A good module for a sneaky, burglar type character. Lots of intrigue and investigation rather than combat. Nice NPCs. Cannot work out what campaign setting these HHQs are supposed to be in, if any. Easily adaptable though.

All right, you know the deal - 3 pages - 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, let's go!
First of all - these curses can be inflicted by mythic bestow curse or mythic major curse (in the case of major curses and spellblights) and cannot be removed via anything other than a wish or miracle (or limited wish for non-major curses/spellblights) -got that? So let's take a look!
-Anoris Curse: Knit the mouth of the creature together! Ouch! Better yet, from feeding tubes to Glasgow-smile solutions, temporarily granting respite is covered...but beware, the curse reasserts itself...Cool!
-Cruciatic Sympathy: Target suffers from nonlethal damage when attacking other creatures as well as from negative conditions due to pain. This sympathy also extends to fear and pain-effects - great roleplaying tool to punish bloodthirsty characters or NPCs!
-Polypollex Curse: All fingers become thumbs. This not only looks disturbing, it also...
All day, I've been quietly wanting this PDF and quietly lusting over the insanity inducing madness of these monsters. There isn't really an easy way to talk about the monsters within this tome, from the moment when I received my copy of The Lusus Naturae I've pretty much been all over this LoFP download. Look do me and yourselves a favor and go grab this book now! Right now! To say that this is not work safe is an understatement and its very well done in what it does. The description of Lusus Naturae is Lusus Naturae is a bestiary for Lamentations of the Flame Princess (and other old-school games), featuring 103 face-melting monsters. And it lives up to the hype. This book isn't for kids and this is a strictly adult book of monsters that go far beyond the usual suspects.
The Lusus Naturae is a book of monsters in the way that body horror is a genre, for those who don't know what I'm talking about here's a definition: body horror, biological horror, organic horror or venereal hor...
First and foremost I’d like to say that this is my first ever review of any gaming product, so in no way will it come close to that of the most prolific reviewer Endzeitgeist and will likely ramble. Secondly, I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review to be posted at Paizo, OBS and Amazon.
This GM Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing is a compilation of a lot of material that Raging Swan had already produced, collected and compiled and I presume updated with any noted errata and it appears in many places may have had new material added that was not previously available in any other Raging Swan product.
The entire PDF is 339 pages long, with about 6 or 7 pages of covers, OGL and Table of Contents leaving a whopping 330+ pages of content to work with and explore. The PDF is divided into 4 major sections, including Dungeon Design, Dungeon Dressing, Riddles and Treasure Hoards.
The Dungeon Design section is all geared around thinking about why a dungeon might...
Fantastic addition to the game, especially for those interested in exploring beyond the hints in the core book and guidebook. I'm incorporating three of he organizations in my first campaign, and will reference it often for plot hooks. Thanks!
Pincers Down, My Favorite Insectoids
Length: 14 pages total: 2 pages front and back covers; 1.5 pages credits and licensing; 10 pages of content; .5 pages of GM advice.
Format: 2-column, with a single information table spreading from side to side. Overall, laid out well and easy to read. I noticed 15 typographical and grammatical errors while reading, but they were mostly unimportant and did not cause confusion or diminish the quality of the book.
Art: The front cover art is cropped from an interior piece, and the back cover has what appears to be a cropped photograph of a moth. 7 pieces of interior art, 6 of which represent various Entobians and 1 half-page scene featuring 2 Entobians in a forest. All of these interior pieces are in color and of very high quality; they make a strong impression and immediately made me want to play a character of this race. Many insectoid creatures from bestiaries are hard to relate to but the artists for this book (Dean Spencer and Eugene Jawo...
Beautiful. A unique rendering of a pillaged/ruined graveyard. The publisher is even wise enough to include VTT versions, perfect for online play at places like roll20.net (which I think is the best service out there).
I buy anything from the Battlemap line and I recommend you do the same.

Awful. In most, the flames look like glass sculptures with weird color pallets for fire. Other flames look more like alien orange plants and bushes.
Not at all useful. I recommend passing on this product.

I wish these came with optional non-grid images. I'm not a big fan of the gray grid, especially when the dominant color of these tiles are gray. But otherwise, this is a useful product if you can't find better ones.
