DDAL07-09 Unusual Opposition (5e)
by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2018 12:20:56
DDAL07-09 Unusual Opposition (5e) Unfortunately, this starts off as a simple fetch quest with the characters going to get information to be used later in another adventure. Then the opening encounter felt like padding added to reach the desired XP total or run time. It had no purpose being in this adventure since it neither advanced the story or depleted resources since the characters get a long rest after this encounter. The second and third parts provide some great opportunities for roleplay as both the hags and the Ramshackle Court feature some interesting NPCs. The final fight was a challenging one, especially if you modify the spell list of the archmage. Psychic Scream + Hellfire Orb make for a great opener to the fight. Maze the Paladin or the strongest looking melee striker. Pre-cast Mage Armor, Mirror Image, Fire Shield and Crown of Stars for the archmage, and use your reactions to Counterspell instead of using Shield. ...

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e) A simple, straight forward exploration adventure that doesn’t actually have much exploration since they are able to find the location with little effort. The fight at the end can be tough depending on the party make up. There is one entertaining NPC that the DM can have some fun with. I enjoyed playing Feetor when I ran this.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2018 12:14:52
DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) I wanted to like this one, the framework is there to have a good adventure. It just didn’t come together in a way that was fun. I like the fact that there are few combats and lots of puzzles and traps. However, half the puzzles were badly written and confusing, which was made worse by the poor maps.

DDAL05-08 Durlag's Tower (5e)
by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2018 12:14:14
DDAL05-08 Durlag's Tower (5e) The exploration of the grounds and building while looking for clues to get in was pretty well set up. The ambush spiced up this section as well. The issue that I had is with the invisible chest that contains most of the reward for this adventure. The final fight was fun, but turned pretty quickly. This is a situation where action economy is going to turn towards the players very quickly. Giving the Staff to K'Nap was an odd choice. He's so squishy and his to-hit modifiers are so low that it's not really plausible for him to try to stun a PC with it (as his tactics direct). The best thing to have him do is just use the powers of the staff to throw some lightning around. ...

DDAL05-09 Durlag's Tomb (5e)
by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2018 12:13:27
DDAL05-09 Durlag's Tomb (5e) Great dungeon crawl, even though it's linear. The author did a good job of challenging Tier 3 players, not by adding monsters, but by using environmental effects. Make sure the players pay attention to what SEER or Hsing says at the beginning. This will save them some pain once inside. Most of this dungeon is puzzle- and trap-laden, although there are also clues to some of the traps hidden on some of the floors. Of course, there are also monsters to fight and some of the combats can be very challenging. ...

C1: Crucible of the Gods
by Joe N.
Publisher: DDE Adventures
Date Added: 08/14/2018 09:10:59
C1: Crucible of the Gods Crucible of the Gods is my favorite dungeon. For some, they think fondly of Tomb of Horrors. For me, it's Crucible. Why? The adventure is engages both the players and the characters. The puzzles are challenging but very do-able. The monsters and battle scenes are few and evocative. The premise is iconic, and the meta-puzzle hits that sweet spot where perceptive players will figure it out. This game runs well not only in D&D 4E, but also 5E (with some conversion; use 5th level characters or so) and also Dungeon World. If you love awesome dungeon one-shots, give Crucible of the Gods a try!...

PFV: Fire Witch (Poster Sized Jpeg) Well there is a woman here and there is some fire. But nothing really "witchy" about it. Still I downloaded it and used it as my phone background for a bit.

Companion Expansion

Publisher: Barrataria Games
Date Added: 08/14/2018 08:43:07
Companion Expansion The Companion Expansion by Barrataria Games didn't get the same level of hype as the B/X Companion, but it covers much of the same ground. I have not looked at them together to see how they cover similar topics, but they seem very compatible. For new races there are gnomes and wild-wood (sylvan) elves, half-orcs, half-ogres and half-elves as race-classes. Wood elves share the same spell lists as do druids and gnomes share a list with Illusionists and bards. All for the B/X system It also has a Bard, Druid, and Illusionist Classes that are roughly equal with the AD&D versions. But the real feature of this book is the expanded spell list. If you are looking to extend your illusionist, druid or bards a bit more with more spells then this is a good way to do it. While this book does not have the feel of the first Basic and Expert books, it does have a ton of useful information and all of it (well all but about 0.5%) is 100% OGL. I consider this book a forgotten treasure....

Adventure Framework 25: Revelry in Northgate
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Low Fantasy Gaming
Date Added: 08/14/2018 06:30:30
Adventure Framework 25: Revelry in Northgate Simple quest to track down an errant drinker in a busy city before he does an "Oliver Reed". Would benefit from a timeline (with locations) for Lord Hargreaves; in a fun scenario, the despotic overlord and forced meeting with his Inquisition, the Anointed, is a jarring note. (See "The Lost Lush" for a better integration of this idea into a political situation.) Four stars for the innovative plot and hilarious mishaps that Lord Hargreaves may suffer.

Monsterhearts

Monsterhearts Avery Alder's Monsterhearts has been one of those games I that I have wanted to review and play some more ever since I first encountered the First Edition all the way back when I was introduced to it at Gen Con. Monsterhearts is a game on what it like to play teenage monsters. Monsters as metaphors for teenage life and feeling a little outside the norm. I think it is something everyone can relate too I think. The system is an easy one, based on the Apocalypse World Engine, something else I have wanted to delve into further. The base mechanic is simple; 2d6 + whatever mods (depending on the game), get higher than 10 for a success, or a 7-9 for something weird. Characters have playbooks (much like many PBA games) but they also have a "Sex Move" they can use on other characters. They are teens afterall. Don't expect a lot of combat here or a detailed combat system, this is not "Supernatural", this is Buffy in the early seasons, Twilight, or Carmillia the Web Series. I am...

DNH4 - Confronting Hastur - 5th Edition

DNH4 - Confronting Hastur - 5th Edition An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth installment of the Haunting of Hastur-series clocks in at 36 pages, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 34 pages of content – this does not take the sturdy wrap-around cover into account. This cover is detachable, and the inside of this massive cover, is a GORGEOUS map of the city of Meavold, depicted in full color and in a player-friendly version – you can just hand it to your players. Big aesthetic plus! The module, like every installment in the series, does come with an alternate introduction to the series, should you and your players be new to the series, making it easy to get into the series. This is easier this time around, courtesy of the structure of the module, but more on that later. My review is based on the Kickstarter exclusive premium print edition, which I received in exchange for a fair, unbiased review. If you have been playing the series, you will have heard about Meavold before – it is the human city on the...

Swords & Wizardry Continual Light

Swords & Wizardry Continual Light An Endzeitgeist.com review This game clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page blank inside of front cover, 1 page editorial,1 page SRD, 2 pages blank at the end of the pdf, leaving us with 18 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was requested by my patreons, to be undertaken at my convenience. So, first things first: What is this? Well, Swords & Wizardry Light is a super-brief twist on the classic Swords & Wizardry OSR-rules-set – and it’s available for free, so you can check it out without any hassle. All basic rules are presented in the file, and it really helps getting newbies into gaming – no need to read hundreds of pages of rules and the like. That being said, its use is contingent on an experienced gamer filling in the brevity-immanent holes, and it does not suffice to play a longer campaign. It is intended to provide easy access to gaming at, for example, conventions, but from a longer-term perspective, it is not stand-alone in the tradition...
