  • #30 Bloodrager Organizations This unusually massive installment of Rite Publishing’s #30-series clocks in at 62 (!!!) pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, which leaves us with 57 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, what do we get herein? Well, basically, a significant collection of organizations for bloodragers, but NOT, and that is important, a full-blown faction-style break-down for them. So no, if you’re looking for fame, prestige, etc.-mechanics, you won’t find those here. Instead, each organization begins with a pretty well-written piece of in-character prose and then sports the alignment of the organization. The tenets are briefly explained and the organizations entry-requirements as well – these usually […]

  • G.U.M.B.O. This module intended for younger audiences clocks in at 34 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 29 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the behest of my patreons.   Before we dive into the nit and grit – this module does sport 3 pages of pregens with nice artworks for each, though, due to space-constraints, the attribute-modifiers, associated attributes for skills etc. are not listed – particularly for the target demographic of kids, these short-hand basic pregens may actually be more confusing when learning the game – so […]

Potential players should jump to the conclusion. … .. . Still here? All right! The town of Pindleton, a farming community that houses no legendary heroes, but which drips in local color, has been suffering -the picturesque area has been hounded by inexplicable raids, to the point where the desperate villagers had to even enforce a curfew.

  • Today I’m going to take a look at Silver Crescent Publishing’s   Realms of Twilight Campaign Setting  I actually own only the dead tree copy of this campaign setting, so I’ll break my usual format for this review. The Realms of Twilight Campaign Setting comes as a massive hardcover book, including two pages of character sheets and 1 page map. After a page of editorial and a page ToC, we get 2 pages introduction and overview of the contents. After that, we get introduced into the world of Relistan. One of the things you immediately notice, is that the b/w-artwork is stunning and ranks among the best you can find in any 3pp-books. Chapter 1 details the fundamentals of the world […]
