  • Recall Knowledge: Fiends (PF2) The second installment of the Recall Knowledge-pdfs clocks in at 27 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a priority review at the request of my patreons.   PF2’s Recall knowledge use of the Lore skill, with its sub-categories, is something I genuinely loved seeing, and which I felt to be curiously absent from the Bestiary – and as such, I very much welcome what this series brings to the table for the GM. In this supplement, the sub-categories will be Daemons, Demons, Devils, or Religion; non-unique fiends are […]

  • Fifty Fiends (Patreon Request) (OSR) This massive supplement clocks in at 76 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover/editorial, 1 page ToC/introduction, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 71 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was requested to be moved up in my reviewing queue by one of my patreon supporters.   In many ways, this is a love letter to the Fiend Folio of old (not the 3.X version), and rules-wise, this employs the B/X rule-set, making this pretty much Old School Essentials-compatible, even if Gavin Norman’s new presentation of the classic rules is not explicitly pointed out, the description of the respective attacks and special […]

  • In the Company of Fiends (revised edition) The revised edition of „In the Company of Fiends“ clocks in at 45 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 41 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   Now, as always in the series, we begin this supplement with an introduction to the race at hand, written from an in-character perspective. This time around, the race would be the nephilim, and the arguments fielded in favor are twisted, delightful and compelling, worthy of the logical leaps of e.g. Paradise Lost, […]

  • Close Encounters: Hyperspace Fiends (SFRPG) This supplement clocks in at 30 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisements, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreons.   After a brief introduction, we’re introduced to the Fiendish Wastes – what’s that, you ask? Well, picture a section of hyperspace where planar boundaries collapsed, fusing a section of the abyss with hell. Yes, that means demons and devils in the same region. No, the results are not pretty. When attempting to cast a spell in the fiendish wastes, a character must […]
