  • Vathak Grimoires: Echoes of the Final Heartbeat The second Vathak Grimoire clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1/2 a page blank, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Echoes of the Final Heartbeat, firstly, would be a new, dread grimoire – and one that has a more evocative and distinct (and more detailed) fluff-introduction than the first installment of the series, with the grimoire’s grim origin story providing a first and rather interesting hint at the things to come – written in blood to the point of complete self-destruction, this tome indeed is the dread testament of its creator. So, can […]

  • The Mad Doctor’s Formulary This pdf is 16 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, 1 page introduction,1 page back cover, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The pdf kicks off with rules for chirurgery, which is portrayed as an unpleasant ability to modify bodies in ways they were not meant to be modified in a world where magical healing is the default. Basically, it requires the skill focus (heal)-feat or at least 5 ranks in Craft (alchemy). If you meet either prerequisites, you may learn chirurgical procedures in a way similar to spells – upon learning them, though, you can use them at will. Studying from a book or another […]

  • Gothic Grimoires: Spellbones of the Destroyer This installment of Legendary Games’ so far impeccable line of weird receptacles of knowledge forbidden and foul is 8 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, 1 page introduction/how to use, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 4 pages of content, so what exactly are these spellbones about?   When archeologists or anthropologists seek out isolated people in a call-of-cthulhu context, the result is seldom pleasant – so here as well. When the researcher that would be the originator of these spellbones entered a poppy-smoke choked tent to unearth the secret of the dawn people, Muham Shab would be lost and in her mind, a drive for knowledge of the most […]

After 7 pages of spell-lists covering all the core-classes, APG-classes and the magus, we dive headlong into a selection of evocation spells, so do they do anything but blandly blowing up things?   Now, evocations are essentially mechanically not too exciting – and this pdf somewhat strives to change that.
