  • Haunting of Hastur #2: The Buried Zikurat (5e) The second installment of the Haunting of Hastur-series clocks in at 28 pages of content if you take away the editorial, ToC, etc., but that does not really represent the module properly.   This review was moved up in my queue due to me receiving a print copy of the adventure.   You see, that page-count only covers the core adventure sported, and the book comes with two supplemental tomes: The first would be the Map and Illustration booklet, which provides full-page, high quality renditions of the artworks, as well as all the full-color maps of the module. These are provided in the pdf as well, and oddly, the maps in the […]

  • 5E Mini-Dungeon: Buried Council Chambers (5e) This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Oh, and the series now comes in an archive that also contains…*drumroll* a .jpg-version and a .tif-version of the map! Yeah, that’s pretty amazing! The dungeon’s number-less version of the map does come with iterations sans the deceptive “S” denoting secret doors, but the secret rooms have not been retouched/covered, so players will still know where to look…but then again, 2 bucks.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short […]

Potential players should jump to the conclusion. All right, still here?   Imperial Marshall Karridoc Castellan of Valera, one of the most powerful men in the 7 cities, requests the presence of the PCs – for an uncommon task: Below a bathing house, recent tremors have unearthed an old ruin of the Valeran empire – one the PCs are to scour for works of art and similar valuable memorabilia of interest to Valera.
