  • Directive Infinity X This module clocks in at 58 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, 2 pages of editorial, leaving us with 53 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   I received this module prior to public release and playtested it. It was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   The premise is pretty much fantasy modern day: In a world that is pretty much like our own, monsters and the like are common and pose a significant risk to the populace. The government has two choices for the truly dangerous creatures out there: Submit to a painless death or be confined and […]

  • Demoncall Pit   This module clocks in at 35 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages editorial/SRD, leaving us with 32 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion.   All right, still here? There we go! The Cellend family has been haunted by a prophecy most dread – according to the premonitions, one of their scions was destined to one day initiate a demonic apocalypse of “opening the worldwound”-level of catastrophe. Unlike many a stereotypical plot like this, though, the family took counter-measures -prohibiting careers as arcane casters, instead focusing on virtue, bringing forth paladins galore over the ages. Alas, as often, the […]

  • Gaming Paper: Barbarian This small pdf by Gaming Paper is 8 pages long, 1 page cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, 1/2 page empty, leaving us with 5 1/2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   DISCLAIMER: As a short look at the editorial will show you, I’ve looked over the beta of this pdf and helped develop it – I did not control the final outcome or have a say in what goes and what stays, though, and thus don’t feel my verdict is compromised in any way.   That out of the way, let’s take a look, shall we? We kick off this pdf with a thoroughly well-written piece f in-game prose that gets one in the mood, […]

  • A Steam-Peek Guide to Orbis This free teaser of Gaming Paper’s Seeampunk-setting of Orbis is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover/editorial/SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 8 pages of content – though that would rather be 16.   Why? Well, because the pdf has one weird quirk – even if set to single page, it always displays two pages at once, something that usually only happens when a file is scanned in. Slightly annoying, but oh well.   So what is Orbis about? Essentially, it endeavors to be (as far as possible) realitsic, at least regarding the results of the availability of magic – the old guard, those that command arcane and divine might, are essentially the […]

  •   Fractured Phylactery    This module is 54 pages long,  1 page front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page back cover, leaving a total of 50 pages of adventure so let’s check this out!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion!   All right, still here? Leander d’Arstand is not your everyday lich – in fact, the undead creature was rather smart and modified the standard phylactery-ritual to split his phylactery into 4 parts and scattered them subsequently to the elemental planes. Half a millennium has come and gone and the tide of years has eroded Leander’s resolve to exist, nourishing a subtle death wish. Now, he depends […]

  • Today I’m going to take a look at one rather uncommon take on a dungeon, Citadel of Pain   This pdf is 119 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page of ToC, 1 blank page prior to the content, 1 page of Kickstarter thanks to patrons, leaving 113 pages of content, quite a bunch! It should be noted that the new version of the pdf is separated into 2 files – adventure and map-sheets and thus uses up less space than before. (The high-res map-sheets should be printed out anyway!) The adventure kicks in with a neat splotch of blood and a famous line by Oscar Wilde prior to getting into the action. It should […]
