  • The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil (5e/OSR) The freshman offering of Dark Naga Adventures clocks in at a classic 32 pages, with one page editorial and 1 page SRD, leaving 30 pages of content – and no, this does not include the front and back cover, since this book very much does not only hearken back to the classic era in tone – it is saddle-stitched and has a detachable color cover that sports maps on the inside – of course in the classic blue/white!   This module was moved up in my review-queue due to me receiving a print copy. The review is based on this print copy of the kickstarter premium print edition.   Okay, before we dive […]

  • Ponyfinder: Forgotten Past This massive book clocks in at 72 pages, not including front cover, ToC, SRD, etc. – that’s pure content, so let’s not waste any time and dig right in!   This book was moved up in my review-queue due to me receiving a print copy of it in exchange for a critical and honest review.   Forgotten Past, the 3rd Ponyfinder book I am to analyze, begins with a brief elaboration on the history that shaped Everglow, and it has some, concept-wise, rather intriguing ideas: For once, the very notion of exploring crypts, dungeons, etc. is seen as a challenge; a kind of heroic real life extreme sports event for the curious and brave, if you will.

  • More Forgotten Feats The second collection of forgotten 3.X feats updated for Pathfinder clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 7.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin with a nice piece of b/w-artwork as well as a handy feat-table listing the content herein and then dive right into the feats – so what do they do?   -Ambidextrous: Halve TWF-penalties. This feat is odd in that PFRPG streamlined the heavy feat tax that made 3.0 rangers so dip-required for TWF – so let’s run the numbers: normal penalty: Halved to -3/-5. Off-hand weapon light? -2/-4. TWF? -2/-2. Off-hand weapon light + TWF: -1/-1. […]

  • Into the Breach: The Forgotten Classes The latest installment of the Into the Breach-series clocks in at 37 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 32 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved forward in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the behest of my patreons.   But wait – what exactly is this? Well, know those NPCs classes? Well, they actually get some modifications in this little book. “But why would I care?” Simple: Either you’re a GM and look for some enhancers and novel tricks for them…or perhaps, you’re looking for a change of pace […]

  • Forgotten Core Feats (Revised) This pdf clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 page SRD, leaving us with 6.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Without an introduction, but thankfully with a table that lists the feats herein, we delve right into the meat of this book, so what do we get? Feats. A lot of them.   -Boon Pack: Animal companions and familiars are treated as druid level +2, up to a max of character level. Stacks with boon companion. Essentially a second feat for a total of up to +6 levels animal companion/familiar progression. Nice for multiclass-chars.   -Cunning: For every HD beyond 3rd, you gain +1 skill rank. […]
