  • And now for something completely different – today I’ll take a look at Kobold Press’ Real Scroll-series, which portrays one spell per installment in a lavish, hand-crafted calligraphy.   Each of these pdf is 4 pages long – 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, 1 page regular text of the spell and 1 page for the real scroll calligraphy version of the spell.   These reviews are not about content – they are about aesthetics and as such, much more so than my regular reviews, I invite you, the reader, to take these as just that – my personal preference and opinion regarding these. Got that?   Great! It should be noted, that the scrolls don’t contain arcane gibberish, […]

  • Today I’ll be taking a look at the planar source book of Open Design,   Dark Roads and Golden Hells   This pdf is 111 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving a total of 106 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Disclaimer: I was a patron of this project, but didn’t contribute due to time-concerns.   All right cutter, I see you’re rather clueless about them’s roads, so here’s the chant: The pdf kicks off with a rather interesting treatise on the nature of planes, making the outer planes essentially a foundation spawned from the soul essence of beings, entwined with an ever-swelling tide […]

  • Tales of the Old Margreve   This adventure anthology/sourcebook is 113 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving 107 pages of content, so let’s take a look at it!   The anthology sets the mood immediately via a two-page short fable about fey and beer and offers thus a great lead-in to the gazetteer-section on the Margreve, the ancient forest of Midgard, where both the wonder, strangeness, creepiness and awe of the forest come back to live and intermingle with the cruel Germanic and Slavic folktales. Both attitudes of the folk, their old ways and rites and customs and the global powers of the forest are […]

  • Northlands This pdf is 114 pages long, 1 page front cover,  1 page editorial/ToC , 1 page patron list, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving a whopping 109 pages for the Northlands, so let’s check it out!   Disclaimer: I was a patron for this project and contributed my fair share of material to the book. Additionally, I’m working with Scandinavian literature and culture as one of my day-jobs, probably not making me the most unbiased of potential reviewers in this instance, but I’ll try to remain as critical, nitpicky and obnoxious as in my other reviews.   Now that that’s out of the way, let’s check it out! Northlands is a sourcebook for the North, to […]
