  • Alien Ass, Hydrogen Gas, or Cosmic Grass… No One Warps For Free (OSR) This massive Alpha Blue supplement clocks in at 74 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages kort’thalis glyph, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page ToC, 3 pages for notes, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 64 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreons.   All right, first things first: This is an Alpha Blue supplement – this setting/game is author Venger As’Nas Satanis’ homage to sleazy 70s scifi porn parodies. The rules-set employed is, as always, VSd6, a super rules-lite d6-based system, supplemented by a metric ton of dressing […]

  • Rude Awakening (SFRPG) This module clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover/advertisement, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, first of all, this is FREE. Originally created as a One-Page-Dungeon, it surprisingly does not show this humble origin; the adventure is intended for 4 1st level characters, and sports a detailed read-aloud introductory text, that presumes that the PCs are in cryosleep, something allowed by the cryogenic pods, bulk 4, which is introduced herein. Once common, in a post-drift era, these have become more rare, and for a reason. The pdf also notes the details for good crew berths and […]

It should be noted that you do not need this pdf for the module to work properly.   As a system neutral adventure, the module lacks any stats, information regarding general difficulty or the like…at least not for the most part, for the adventure does need to reference a couple of rules, courtesy of its plot. More on that later. The adventure features […]

  • The Mini-Manor #2 – The Flayed King (OSR) This FREE mini-adventure clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This adventure contains slightly mature themes. Nothing grievous, but if you’re really easily offended, you may want to look elsewhere. Personally, I consider this to be pretty much PG 13. The module assumes S&W rules and should best suit a party of 4 of about 3rd – 4th level characters; depending on player-expertise, lower level PCs may survive.   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump […]

  • Cave of Seiljua (OSR) This is a one-page-dungeon; as such, the dungeon and all text literally fit on, well, one page. There are no stats here, with monster-names bolded instead; the map is hand-drawn, in full-color, and surprisingly well-done – while a player-friendly, key-less version on a second page would have been appreciated, I still was positively surprised by the map.   As per usual, I don’t expect a pdf of this brevity to provide earth-shaking stories or the like. The adventure assumes a gold standard. Spells and magic items are not perfectly formatted.   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. … .. . Okay, only GMs around? Great!   The […]

    The Starship from Hell (system-neutral)

    The Starship from Hell (system-neutral) This pdf clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 3 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 39 pages of content, though these are formatted for the A5 (” by 9”)-size, which means you can comfortable fit 4 of these pages on a given sheet of A4/US-letterpack paper, making printing this out pretty economical.   Okay, confession time.

  • Crimson Dragon Slayer 1.11 This one-hour game-version of Crimson Dragon Slayer clocks in at 11 pages -all content, no frills.   So what is this? Intended for relative novices to the game, this is a stripped down version of the regular Crimson Dragon Slayer-rules, with a different focus – where the regular version features a goofy, over-the-top and awesome metal attitude, this one emphasizes dark science-fantasy as a default assumed genre. The pdf explains the basics of roleplaying and the system, which is ridiculously easy.   The basis for this is VSD6-system: A roll of 1 is a critical failure, a roll of 2 a failure, a roll of 3 mostly failure, 4 = mostly success, 5 = success and […]

The Wayfinder magazine is FREE, costs absolutely ZILCH and contains evocative, unique material. Even if you don’t play Pathfinder, the excellent artwork tends to make the magazine a great download to just print out and use the art as handouts.
