  • Threats: Dawn of the Dwimmerlaik (Diceless) The second of Rite Publishing’s ecology-style sourcebooks detailing threats for the LoGaS-setting is 26 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving 24 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   As per the tradition by now, this sourcebook is written in glorious in-character-prose and depicts documents of the dwimmerlaik – a narrative by one of these threats in LoGaS, taking a cue from LPJr Design’s “First One”-pdf and doing something smart – establishing from the get-go that, what follows, are lies. The origin-myth depicted, analogue to Shakespeare’s Tempest blended with several classical topoi from mythology, starts with the ascension of the race, elevation from shackles and wilderness and the overcoming […]

  • Threats: Echoes of the Typhonians (Diceless) This supplement for Lords of Gossamer and Shadows is the first providing a spotlight for a particular kind of threat (D’unh) faced by the Gossamer Lords and Ladies (and other – we don’t discriminate on the great stair…) clocks in at 23 pages, 1 page editorial, 1 page front cover, 21 pages of content – so let’s take a look!   So, as has become tradition with Rite Publishing’s supplements, this one as well in written in aptly-crafted in-character prose, introducing us to the so-called Usari. What are these people? Well, you’re probably familiar with the saying that everyone has a Doppelgänger out there? Well, we have one world. With infinite worlds at one’s […]

  • Gossamer Worlds: Tetsujin Shogunate This installment of Rite Publishing’s extremely affordable tour through the infinite worlds of the Grand Stair is 10 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The world of the Tetsujin Shogunate has been hit by a catastrophe – caught in-between the insterstellar warfare of the alien races oni and kappa, much of the world has become uninhabitable when the aliens crash-landed there. That being said, there also were positive aspects to all of that (or at least: supremely cool ones!): The kinda-slightly-benevolent Kappa came down in Japan and were coerced/swayed to help stem the tide of the monstrous oni that kept […]

  • Gossamer Worlds: The Nightmare Kingdom The third in Rite Publishing’s series showcasing the infinite worlds of the Grand Stair, this one clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving 9 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So what is the Nightmare Kingdom? Well, the nightmare kingdom is, as the in-character narrative postulates…strange. Even for the Grand Stair. There is a theory postulated (which may or may not be true) that the Nightmare Kingdom can actually reach places without using the Grand Stair, drifting through shadows and luring unsuspecting beings in. Touching the infinite worlds via closets and subverting doors, the hellish conglomerate of the fears of a thousand times thousand worlds is […]

  • Lords of Gossamer & Shadows Addendum: Blessings & Curses This supplement for DICELESS LoGaS is 8 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   Based on Psyche, the ability to bestow blessings & curses costs 35 points – 15 points for the ability and a pool of 20 points to make said blessings & curses. Once these are used up, the rest of the required point costs are converted to bad stuff or detracted from good stuff. So…what’s the difference between stuff and these conditions? The pdf does explain that rather nice, and the process of delivering blessings & curses is also covered in […]

  • Gossamer Worlds: Empyrea Infinite worlds lie on the Grand Stairs – here, we get Empyrea in the second installment of the Gossamer Worlds-series in a 9-page pdf, of which 1 page is the front cover, 1 page the editorial, leaving 7 pages – so what is this place all about?   If you’re a comic-book-nerd, think New Genesis. If that doesn’t ring any bells – think an idealistic, enlightened greco-roman-style planet of essentially superhumans – guided by a benevolent allfather who is only slowly coming to grips with the existence of the Grand Stair, the people of Empyrea essentially live in bliss and, via positive eugenics, can be indeed considered superb beings. If you’re like me, this makes you shudder […]

  • Lucien’s Guide to the Grand Stair (DICELESS) This pdf is 26 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 24 pages, so let’s take a look!   I LOVED Lords of Gossamer and Shadows – its imagery of this vast staircase with doors to infinite worlds resounding well with my tastes and sensibilities – here, then, we have an account of one well-versed in the intricacies of the Grand Stair, the rather powerful Warden Lucien, who guides us in a neatly written in-character prose through some of the weird and wonderful places of the Grand Stair. From the interplanar market place to the unstable (and lavishly rendered) rickety stairs and the starlit stair over to the […]

  • Lords of Gossamer & Shadow (Diceless) This massive sourcebook for Erick Wujcik’s Diceless system is 168 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page list of patronage/Kickstarter-thanks, 1 page ToC, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 163 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   Born from Amber Dicelss Roleplaying, LoGaS depicts a setting which, unsurprisingly, makes use of countless worlds – the Gossamer worlds, made real by ethereal, true power. These countless worlds are connected to another via the Grand Staircase, an unfathomably huge staircase that features countless doors leading to countless gossamer worlds. Behind the screen, the forces of eidolon and umbra wage war eternal – eidolon being the force of […]
