  • Star Log.EM: Rougarous (SFRPG) This installment of the Star Log.EM-series 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!   As always, we begin this supplement with a brief contextualization of the race in question within the Xa-Osoro system, before diving into the information on the rougarous, who btw. also hail from the lost world of Azan, destroyed in the cataclysm of the Regicide. Interesting to note would be that the race develops first like wolves, but ages slower, with the second birthday being a benchmark for them to start the development towards a bipedal stance, and their cognitive development is […]

  • Star Log.DELUXE: Planar Scions Reforged (SFRPG) This deluxe-sized Star Log-installment clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Sooo, the first thing you need to know here, is that “planar scions” is the catch-all term for races suffused by planar energies; these, previously, often turned out to be humans, but in the Nova Age, this no longer necessarily holds true. The races herein thus have the mortal heritage trait. This trait lets them choose a base race of sorts from a list, and gains the race-trait noted. The Disguise check to pass off as said race is not modified, […]

The archetype nets an alternate class feature at 2nd level, namely clutch bond, which allows for the formation of partner bonds with two willing nondragonkin creatures simultaneously. All members of the clutch roll initiative and share the highest result, which is a pretty […]

Well, for one, it’s a CR +1 template you can apply to your critters. The creature gets AC +1, blindsight 60 ft. and planar sense, which extends the sight of the creature beyond adjacent planar borders, allowing the creature, for example, see from the material plane into the shadow plane’s twisted reflection and vice versa. These creatures also get +2 Str, Dex, Con and Wis, and the Dimensional Agility, Dimensional Assault, Dimensional Dervish, Dimensional Maneuvers […]

This book thus aims to upgrade teamwork feats to make them useful for characters that don’t have a class feature that makes them more viable. Let’s dive in!   Teamwork feats require that […]

    Pop Culture Catalog: Vidgames (SFRPG/almost system neutral)

    Pop Culture Catalog: Vidgames (SFRPG/almost system neutral) The first installment of the Pop Culture Catalog-series clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 9 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 patreon supporters.   Being the first in a new series, this supplement deals with something that was painfully absent from many a supplement in many a science-fiction/science-fantasy/space-opera game – flavor, particularly regarding the small details. Whether you think of Star Wars or series more in line with my tastes like Firefly, Defiance or The Expanse, you’ll notice something when […]

Originally, levialogi were […]

  • Everyman Minis: Lost Children This Everyman Mini clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Somewhere between the Plane of Dreams, the Shadow Plane and our mortal realms, there lies a place that we all can remember from our childhoods: The realm beyond the streets, beyond the bed, beyond the walls of the closet – the Underverse, a place where nature is not fixed, a place that can be equal parts Neverland or Nightmare realm. Time is erratic, and entryways and exits are ephemeral. Whether you visit UnLunDun or one of the aforementioned places – they all potentially fit […]

  • Everyman Minis: Eidolon Knight This Everyman Mini 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!   After we briefly discuss the morality of riding an eidolon, as the unchained summoner was kinda prohibited from getting a mount eidolon, at least pre-Ultimate Wilderness, due to mount as an evolution being relegated to non-good subtypes only. I wholeheartedly subscribe to the notion expressed here, that riding an eidolon is not disrespectful or demeaning.   But we’re not here to talk philosophy, we’re here to check out the eidolon knight archetype for the unchained summoner. These guys get proficiency in simple and martial […]
