  • Colossus, Arise! (DCC) This adventure clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 28 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue, as one of my patreon supports asked me to cover the DCC modules at my convenience.   So, as always, this Dungeon Crawl Classics module does come with a list of encounters; as (almost) always, we have exceedingly well-written read-aloud prose, and, on the less amazing side of things, the cartography provided is awesome, but lacks player-friendly versions, which means that only the judge ever gets to see them – unless you enjoy immersion-breaking […]

  • The Secrets of the Twisting Colossus (5e) This module clocks in at 39 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, leaving us with 36 pages of content. The module does come, however, with a bonus-pdf that contains no less than 17 pages of handouts, which is pretty amazing as far as I’m concerned.   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreon supporters.   Okay, so the first thing you need to know about here, would be the exemplary handout-array provided. I genuinely did not expect to see this level of support – the module comes with an extra pdf that contains no less than 16 pages! Some of […]

  • Maiden Voyage of the Colossus (PFRPG/DCC) This module clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 22 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   First things first: This module was written for the Iron GM-contest (which is frickin’ amazing!) that basically makes GMing a competitive sport and it’s cool to see a module published based on this amazing event. Seriously, huge fan of it!   That being said, the module as presented here is dual format, for PFRPG and DCC, with PFRPG-material being denoted by purple headers, DCC material by black ones – the color-coding is a nice touch here.   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players […]

  • By now you’ve probably all heard that the monthly membership cost is going up.  The price increase affects new members immediately, while existing customers will be seeing a price increase by September of 2011.  I know, I know, it IS a huge bummer to lose out on a few extra bucks a month, it adds up!  Should we be grandfathered in?  I think so.  Netflix disagrees with me.  I’m the kinda of guy that sees a glass with water in it, and I’ll try be thankful that I have water, as opposed to focusing on how empty the glass is, but it’s tough to swallow another hit to the pocket book… Hopefully this helps… New to Netflix Instant Streaming:   […]
