  • The Alternate Path: Martial Characters This pdf clocks in at…wait…what? 119 pages? Okay, this’ll be a long one. Of these pages, 1 page is devoted to the front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 116 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, there are classes herein – a lot of them, and they are defined pretty much by their cultural niche and concept – being labeled as exotic classes, since they may be more specialized than a given class, but still taking the same niche. So no, these do not count as alternate classes. Rules-wise, we are introduced to so-called “trappings,” items, which, much like e.g. an arcane bonded object, is a defining […]

  • Gonzo This supplement clocks in at a massive 65 pages of content, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages blank, leaving us with 60 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Wait, one note before that – this pdf comes with a second version that provides a 2-page layout, but for the purpose of page-count, I opted for the one-page version. Got that? All right!   So this book kicks off with a definition of what “gonzo” is – in short, it is an experiment in testing out the malleability of pathfinder, of providing weird ideas, in being somewhat bonkers. It also aims to retain the functionality of the system and maintaining enjoyment […]

  • Dragon Tiger Ox This massive book by Little Red Goblin Games clocks in at 172 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 7 pages of SRD (with some pages duplicating text from the adventure at the end of the book), leaving us with 163 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Now if you’ve been following my reviews, you’ll know that I usually take apart crunch for races and classes in a pretty detailed manner. The problem with a book of this size and my approach is evident -were I to do that here, the review would bloat beyond compare. Hence, I’ll be somewhat less detailed than usual in this review, picking out the cherries and the […]
