This bonus pdf clocks in at 21 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, […]

  • Welcome to Dolmenwood (system neutral) All right, so this humble FREE pdf clocks in at 6 pages, 1 of which is the front cover; the second page contains the editorial – and the rest provides exactly what it says on the tin: An introduction to Dolmenwood!   While Dolmenwood is a kind of serialized campaign setting, in that it is expanded in the Wormskin-zine, and while the setting’s rules are presented in B/X as the chosen OSR-rules-setting, this pdf is 100% player-friendly, and should be considered to be a kind of a teaser trailer for PCs. On a rules side of things, this means that this does not feature rules, and as such, it gets the system neutral tag on […]

  • Narcosa (OSR) This massive book clocks in at 108 pages, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 1 page weird glyphs, leaving us with 104 pages of content. The full-color cover artwork is included as a jpg and the scale-less map is also included thus. I own the softcover print version of this book, which sports the map as a back cover, just fyi. I will base my review mostly on the print version. While there is also a hardcover version, I do not own it.   This review was sponsored by one of my generous patreons, to be undertaken at my leisure.   “Someone has read Carcosa!” Ouch, ouch, ouch…hey, I promised I’ll use that quote! Anyways, this book […]
