  • Paragon Hags and Occult Covens This supplement clocks in at a hefty 28 pages,1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay, let us do this from the ground up: The pdf starts off with a summary of coven-benefits: If at least two coven members participate in the same occult ritual, they get +2 to all skill checks, saves and concentration checks for the ritual; when casting spells on another coven member, CL is two higher, but multi-target spells only gain target number increases by CL if all targets are members of the coven – great catch! The pdf sports a variety of coven related […]

  • Starfarer Adversaries: Sluagh (SFRPG) This installment of the Starfarer Adversaries-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 4 pages of content, one page of which is devoted to a one-page version of the creature-artwork, suitable to act as a handout.   The sluaghs receive a whole page of background story – face-stealers, servants of the unseen good; Void Demons, Lords of Dark Matter – many are the names applied to them, and none of them are kind. Their empire may have collapsed, but this has not mitigated the threat that these shapechangers represent.   Two different sluagh are included herein, at CR 6 the sluagh infiltrator, […]

  • The Red Prophet Rises (OSR) This module clocks in at 30 pages of content, already disregarding pages devoted to editorial, front cover, etc. The module was moved up in my reviewing queue due to me receiving a print copy in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.   Okay, so “The Red Prophet Rises” is an adventure intended for 3-6 characters of levels 3-5, using the For Gold & Glory ruleset based on 2nd edition. This means that we have THAC0s, descending AC, HD, morale noted, etc. – when all’s said and done, this means that conversion to pretty much any OSR-rules system is pretty simple, as the statblocks etc. note a lot of information. Even an activity cycle, mind […]

  • Monster Menagerie: Giraffenomicon This installment of the Monster Menageries-series clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page of SRD, leaving us with 10 pages of content, one of which is devoted to the introduction, so let’s take a look!   Okay, so see that one the cover? Legend Stan! Provides pretty hilarious artworks for all the monsters herein, so let’s check out whether the stats hold up as well: The first critter would be the Giraffecorn (CR 5), who sports a glistening silvery coat, cloven hooves and a sex-feet long, pink horn. It also, hilariously, can use invisibility at will and has an air walk that only works to a limit of 6 feet […]

That book is AWESOME!), the pdf does reprint the therianthrope template graft for your convenience. Therianthropes are btw. sapient creatures that have been corrupted with bestial instinct and rage, and the rules presented within do cover the wolf-like, most famous therianthropes, the werewolves, and more – two sample statblocks are provided, the first of which would depict a skittermander weremonoux operative (CR 3), and yes, before you ask, […]

  • A Credit for your Thots (OSR) This supplement clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover,  1 page editorial/back cover, leaving us with 18 pages of content, so let’s take a look! Wait, why supplement? Because, while there is a module included here, it’s not the central focus – the main meat of the module is devoted to rules and help for prolonged Alpha Blue games.   Now, as always, this is an Alpha Blue module – this means that it’s inspired by 70s/80s porn parodies of scifi movies, and as such, raunchy material is included in this pdf. If you have an issue with sexuality featuring in your game, this may not be what you want to purchase. […]

It may not be a surprise to veterans – but Raven’s Cradle makes for a pretty perfect fit for Ravenloft and similar settings/games that want to add a bit of folklore/horror in the vein of the […]

While hoard/horde is indeed one of the most common homophone errors I encounter, this time it’s no error. As for the rules-sets employed, the publication sports both 0e/1e stats and B/X-stats for the monsters included in the start – these would be a leech man, and a halfling/elf racial mix. Both are decent, if not spectacular critters. Both […]

There is one more thing to note: The pdf introduces a rules term, namely the “source entity” – this entity is basically akin to […]

This series adheres to a pretty minimalist approach to module presentation – two columns of black text in a white background. Headers are bolded, but the small statblocks have no internal formatting – this is as minimalist as can be. As for the rule-set, the module does not subscribe to a particular OSR-game or edition, claiming general compatibility, which means that you will have to do some tweaking to modify the module for your preferred old-school […]

Unlike many multi-part adventures, the different chapter manage to retain their own, concise themes while still gelling together […]
