  • Panataxia The latest module by 4 Dollar Dungeons and heir to the SUPERB “Horn of Geryon” is a whopping 70 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 67 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion.   All right, still here? Adrift in the vastness of the astral plane, there is a demi-plane…or a fraction of a planet. Or a sentient construct – whatever its nature may be, it’s called Panataxia, it’s shaped like a dodecahedron (a D12) and its layout may feel like an underground dungeon/cavern crawl, but it is so much more […]

  • This adventure is 65 pages long, 2 pages front cover/editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 61 pages of content, so let’s check this out!   This being an adventure-review, the following text contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right! It all starts with a missing rabbit. No, seriously. When the rather difficult daughter of a retired adventurer turned innkeeper misses her rabbit, he asks the PCs to investigate and, providing the distracting child can be persuaded to let the PCs snoop through her things (her interference actually makes the job harder – VERY cool!), they will find that a bauble has gone missing alongside the pet.

Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   All right, still here? The village of Pig’s Trotter is your typically (un-)friendly backwater village – peaceful, distrustful of strangers and featuring a pig-based economy. All would be well, were it not for strange incursions from the nearby forest – pigs get slaughtered and though the village is located […]
