Everyman Unchained-series Archive

  • Everyman Unchained: Eidolons This installment of Everyman Unchained clocks in at a massive 50 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages of SRD and 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 43 (!!!) pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Or rather, well, before we do, let me state that this book was a ton (no, really!) of work, but also one I truly appreciated. When i began reviewing the Everyman Unchained-series, I had to cover basically everything…and compare the individual builds with Purple Duck Games’ takes on the same concepts. Which turned reviewing these into a comparative nightmare. Worse, from a reviewer’s point of view, the two approaches taken diverged significantly. Wherein Alexander Augunas stuck […]

  • Everyman Unchained: Skills and Options This installment of Everyman Gaming’s support-series for Pathfinder Unchained clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 14 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, if you’ve been experimenting with skill-systems from Pathfinder Unchained and your group is like mine, you’ll have had an experience that mirrors that of author Alexander Augunas – backlash. In practice, none of the skill systems worked for my game. I’m not judging you if the suggested systems work for you and yours – just stating it does not work for everyone. Still, several design-ideas provided in the skill systems doe have some merit – and as […]

  • Everyman Unchained: Unchained Rage The third book in Everyman Gaming’s conversion of archetypes clocks in at 21 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 18 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   Unlike the monk, obviously, the unchained barbarian has a different set of prereqs – this time around, one has to establish terminology for referring to rage powers as provided for the base class and for its unchained version -which Alexander Augunas, with trademark efficiency, does – in short: If it’s an unmodified rage power, it refers to Pathfinder Unchained, while if quoted as modified, it refers to rage powers or sources in books that predate it, modifying […]

  • Everyman Unchained: Monk Archetypes II The second pdf by Everyman Gaming that covers Unchained variants of archetypes for the monk clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   As in the first installment of this series, we begin this pdf with an extremely useful piece of information beyond the introduction – the sidebar on cracking the code depicts the extrapolation and abstraction of unchained archetype replacements as used in this supplement and can thus be considered an intriguing piece of information for designers and hassled GMs seeking to adapt unchained archetypes. This useful piece of information out of […]

That being said, while I am not a fan of all changes and design-decisions utilized in the respective revamps of the base-classes, there is undoubtedly one fact that may prove to be somewhat unpleasant for some groups – quite a few of the extensive customization options […]
