  • Relic Files: Treasures of the Earth I – Svarduun, the Black Hammer After the deviation from the formula in the last installment of this series, where we took a look at a power armor, this constitutes a return to the formula of depicting a relic, i.e. with a magic weapon that increases in potency every level. The pdf clocks in at 5 pages, with 1 page SRD/editorial, 1/2 a page front cover, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let’s take a closer look!   We begin this item’s entry with a significant and well-crafted section of fluffy introductory text, before getting into the details of the weapon – what, at first level, looks like a masterwork warhammer but […]

  • Gossamer Worlds: Incursion Earth 626 (Diceless) This installment of the evocative Gossamer Worlds-series clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Incursion Earth 626 is one of the infinite allotopias (i.e. alternate earths) than can be reached via the Grand Stair – but is a unique one. In 1985, reality cracked – this time not due to earth’s humans screwing it up, but due to an extremely expansionist empire called the “Incursion” piercing the veils of reality. These technocratic conquerors botched something, though, when they arrived in this reality and mankind suddenly was faced with a vast influx of psionic power – from […]

  • Mini-Dungeon: Shrine of the Earth-Barons This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right!   The PCs find a capstone that opens to a dome that once housed a […]
