  • Welcome to Scarthey (almost system neutral) This setting supplement clocks in at 64 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page acknowledgements, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 53 pages of content – at least in the single-page version. If you prefer e-readers and the like, there is a double-page version of the pdf included as well.   This review was added and moved up in my reviewing queue because I was tasked to review a module set in this setting, and it makes no sense and violates my OCD-tendencies to cover a module […]

  • Star Log.EM: Kami (SFRPG) This Star Log.EM-installment clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   On the introductory page, we get a pretty massive subtype graft that grants kami immunity to bleed, polymorph and mind-affecting effects, resistance 10 to three energy types, as well as CR-based telepathy. Additionally, they designate a ward, which may be a creature, location or object. The kami may merge with the ward and share senses as a standard action, and emerge just the same way. Nice: This takes mounting wards into account regarding size category implications. While within 120 feet of the ward, the […]

This archetype nets the best-gob Skill Focus with Engineering at 2nd level as an alternate class feature. At 11th level and every 4 levels thereafter, the insight bonus increases by 1. Additionally, at 4th, 6th, 12th and 19th level, you may take […]

The builds make use of the Spell Bane feat and the bounty hunter theme; the latter being a welcome, if unusual deviation from the straight application of class grafts here, as far as I’m concerned.   The builds seem to be missing the -2 adjustment to Reflex save mandated […]

Nominally intended for characters level 4th to 7th, I’d suggest in favor of sticking to the lower level range if […]

The pdf is laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5), which means you can fit up to 4 pages on a given sheet of paper.   As always: While this is intended for the Porphyra RPG currently being playtested and streamlined, the book as a whole is properly compatible with PFRPG 1e with minimum fuss.

As though something odd that I’ve forgotten has… *THWUMP* *tap* *tap* Is this reviewer-dude on? Great! Hoomanz of Planet Earth, this is Doctor Malifaord Hudson Insano speaking once more to you from beyond the boundaries of your backwater galaxy, directly transmitting my brainwaves into this mortal vessel to tell you about my delightful disintegrators and how they can solve your problems!   What problems? I’m glad you asked! […]

  • Keeping It Classy: The Barbarian (5e) This class-centric supplement clocks in at 40 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 33 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   All right, after a brief introduction, we dive right into new primal paths – 15 to be precise. Discussing all of them in detail would bloat this review beyond any usefulness, so I’ll keep it short and to the point. I assume that you know when […]

  • Starfarer Adversaries: Thugs (SFRPG) This installment of the Starfarer Adversaries-series clock in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   As always with these pdfs, we do get a neat one-page full-color rendition of the cover artwork, which makes for a nice handout. Beyond that, we also receive not one, not two, but 6 different statblocks in this pdf – CR 1, CR 2 and CR 4 are based on regular orcs, while CR 3, CR 6 and CR 9 are heavy thug statblocks, based on ogres.   Let’s start with the orc-builds, shall we? They use the soldier […]

  • Advanced Adventures: Stonepick Crossing (OSR) This adventure/supplement clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front/back cover, 1 page editorial, ½ a page SRD, leaving us with 10.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was requested by a supporter of my patreon, to be undertaken at my convenience.   All right, so, as always, this supplement was designed with the OSRIC rules in mind, though formatting conventions do somewhat deviate from the system’s established standard. The module is intended for characters level 1 – 3, though at first level, the experience of running this can be rather deadly. A well-rounded group is certainly suggested, and it should be noted that there is actually plenty of roleplaying […]

  • Galaxy Pirates: Katar Light Freighter (SFRPG) This installment of the Ship-supplements for the intriguing Galaxy Pirates-line clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s check this out!   The light freighter of the katar would be a tier 1 ship, powered by a pulse brown power core, equipped with a basic drift engine, basic computer, and budget short-range sensors. This one has 3 cargo holds as expansion bays, but one thing that is not basic, that is actually better than what e.g. the heavy freighter offers: The little vessel has good crew quarters! Defense-wise, it sports mk 3 armor and mk 2 defenses, as well as basic […]

Nice! The race may, at first glance, be mistaken for human, though their skin pigmentation does differ, and their increased hair growth means they have mighty manes – but this resemblance with humans that are into hair metal is only skin deep: The zephyrian physiology allows them to absorb radiation from sunlight to defy gravity, and a nine-chambered stomach allows them […]
