  • Echelon Reference Series: Fighters (3pp + PRD) This installment of the Echelon Reference Series clocks in at 290 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 16 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 269 pages of content, so let’s take a look! (This page-count is the one of the 3pp + PRD-version, mind you.)   So, at this point, I have covered multiple Echelon Reference Series pdfs, so I’m going to be brief regarding the details: There are basically three different steps of completion for these pdfs: They grow, and once they have grown, their price goes up as they become more refined. There are three steps: […]

  • Echelon Reference Series Core Classes (3pp + PRD) Bundle   This review was requested as a prioritized review by my patreons.   I need to change my usual reviewing style for this bundle, due to its sheer vast and staggering scope. I began with breakdowns of page counts etc. at one point, and realized that this would only render the review a) bland and b) less informative than it should be. Since I have already covered the barbarian, cleric, sorcerer and wizard installments contained within this bundle, I’d like to point you towards these for a detailed breakdown of how a specific installment in the series works.   What kind of scope are we talking about? Well, how do more […]

  • Echelon Reference Series: Sorecror/Wizard Spells Compiled (3pp + PRD) First things first: This review is based primarily on the version that takes 3pp-options as well as PRD-spells into account; for a link to the PRD-only version, see the bottom of my review on my homepage.   This COLOSSAL reference tome clocks in at 1176 pages. Let that sink in. 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 12 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a ridiculous 1159 pages of content. It should be noted that the pdf sports a 37 pages strong index; this index not only lists the spells alphabetically, it also sports hyperlinks, allowing you to jump directly to […]

  • Echelon Reference Series: Sorcerers (3pp + PRD) This massive reference-book clocks in at 352 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 9 pages of SRD, 1 page series-overview dashboard, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 337 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This pdf was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   So, what is this book? Well, first of all, in case you’re wondering, this file exists in two versions – one organizes and collates only PRD material, while the other includes a smattering of worthwhile 3pp-material. I am, unsurprisingly, mostly concerned with the latter, though PRD-only groups […]

  • Echelon Reference Series: Barbarians (PRD + 3pp) This massive book comes in two versions: One that focuses on PRD-options only, and one that also features 3pp-content. My review is based on the latter option, since it also encompasses the former. For completion’s sake, the PRD-only version clocks in at 180 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 4 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, for a total of 171 pages of content. The PRD + 3pp-version clocks in at a MIGHTY 352 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 10 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a massive 337 pages of […]
