  • Skill Challenge Handbook This handbook clocks in at 79 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 3 pages of advertisements, leaving us with 71 pages of content, so let’s check this out!   This book was moved up in my reviewing-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   It is no secret that I never liked D&D 4th edition. I tried the game and I’m not trying to discredit it or its playstyle – it just wasn’t what I considered to be enjoyable and in contrast to PFRPG and 5e, it didn’t let me tell the stories I wanted to tell.

The main drive is to get out word about the $25 “PDF bundle” reward, which gives supports a collection of more than 75 PDFs from dozens of companies, with a value greater than $400!

  • Today, I want to take you back through a bit of my personal history: When the 3.5-days of old were winding down, I was disillusioned with much of the rpg-offerings out there: I didn’t like the encounter-format WotC was starting to promote, didn’t like the direction 4th edition was going, my go-to publisher Necromancer Games was on hiatus and I was not sufficiently active online to know about the “secret” small companies that didn’t show up at my FLGS. Then I bought “Burnt Offerings” – and liked it. I liked the gritty minor bits and pieces and thought “I’ll give this one final try”. I bought “The Skinsaw Murders” and “Hook Mountain Massacre”. And was blown away – here were […]
