  • Spooky Gardens: Deadly Gardens Autumn Special The first extra-length special of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, ~1/2 a page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 11.5 pages of content, so what do we get?   Well, after a brief introduction, the first piece of crunch we get is the spirit cudgel, a +2 gloom bough heartwood club that protects the wearer as protection from evil when an incorporeal undead comes within 60 ft. Okay, I guess.   More interesting would be the first creature, the delightfully twisted CR 5 brain pumpkin – basically, these thinking plants have dangerous tendrils and a gaze that can enthrall those subject to it, who thereafter get close to the […]

  • End of Autumn This pdf is 35 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages SRD, 1 blank page, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 28 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS, thus potential players are advised to jump to the conclusion.   All right, still here? The Wandering River area into which the PCs stumble makes one thing relatively clear – they’re in for trouble, as ominous mists are rising and no matter how well they fare survival-wise, they always seem to end up in the same location again. Healing magic seems to be impeded in certain areas as […]

The first of Michael Tumey’s Haiku of Horror series of supplements details a bath house and as such, since in Western culture they are not that common, we kick this supplement off with an introduction on the concept of bath houses that essentially takes the basic concept from Japanese culture and introduces the audience to Kaidan’s particular take on the concept as well as providing concise lists of prices. Throughout the supplement, terms ranging […]

  • ‘Tis the October wind that speaks of death lying, waiting behind trees gone chill and bare.  Whistling through the limp limbs of despair, the wind sets restless souls loose on the still.  We light our campfires to ward our bodies from autumn’s shadow as we have for years gone black.  Most nights our primal safeguard of flame keeps demons’ souls at bay.  Yet, this night is Hallows Eve, the day of living hell. This night of deathly solstice calls shades of havoc that would walk amongst the living just as wolves stalk wintry livestock, huddled together to parry the cold.  Hades’ gates have now swung open to unleash the hounds of hell on our mortal flesh; they aim to announce […]
