Gonzo Archive

  • Monkey Business (OSR) Okay, the first thing you’ll notice upon downloading this, is that you get an archive that contains 6 files – one is a read me, while three are cheat sheets; the other two files are Monkey Business, and the “Appendices”-file – which may be rather misnamed, but I’ll get to that below. The adventure booklet is 51 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover left blank, 1 page editorial, 1 page introductory quote, 1 page ToC, leaving us with 46 pages; the Appendices booklet clocks in at 55 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, leaving us with 52 pages of content. The booklets are laid out in […]

  • Gonzo 2 This book clocks in at 419 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with…414 pages of content. … .. WTF, 419-pages?? Seriously, I had various iterations of the playtest-doc since last year. It’s the only reason you’re seeing this review NOW. This has been moved forward on my review-queue as a prioritized review…and doing so was smart, for this book has been in circulation among playtest classes for more than a few months This is seriously the biggest book of CRUNCH I have ever reviewed, even taking the one-column layout into account…and it would completely break my format. So how to review this?   All right, let’s establish some standards, shall […]

  • Gonzo This supplement clocks in at a massive 65 pages of content, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages blank, leaving us with 60 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Wait, one note before that – this pdf comes with a second version that provides a 2-page layout, but for the purpose of page-count, I opted for the one-page version. Got that? All right!   So this book kicks off with a definition of what “gonzo” is – in short, it is an experiment in testing out the malleability of pathfinder, of providing weird ideas, in being somewhat bonkers. It also aims to retain the functionality of the system and maintaining enjoyment […]
