  • Adventure Quarterly #8 The 8th installment of Rite Publishing’s spiritual successor to Dungeon magazine clocks in at 55 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 50 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This book was moved up in my review-queue due to being prioritized by my patreons. Additionally, I received an early access iteration, which allowed me to complete actually testing these modules prior to release – one of the reasons you’re seeing this review so relatively close to AQ #8’s release, in spite of the issues that have haunted real life for me in the last couple of weeks. We begin this installment, […]

  • Alterkine: 8 Pregens (D20 modern/future) This pdf clocks in at 18 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 16 pages of content – which makes sense as soon as you open this pdf.   Why? Because as soon as you do, you’ll be looking at character-sheets – pregenerated at 4th level, two pages of standard character sheet per build, because these are not pregens in the traditional sense – they are basic stats with some crucial equipment added. No names, no character. The alterkine-compatible sheets with slots for wealth and reputation have been filled rather nicely and cover the base classes trooper, warrior, tech, scav, mystic, investigator, drfiter and charmer.   Aaaand…that’s about it. Class abilities, […]
