Instead, it would indeed be significantly more rewarding for such privileged ladies to visit the Delectable Dragonfly, a tea house of exquisitely good taste, where the gossip of the local elite and […]

  • Christina Stiles Presents: Waysides – Didjer’s Crab House This supplement is 20 pages long, 1 page front cover/foreword, 1 page SRD/editorial, leaving us with 18 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This being the first in the Waysides-series, it kicks off with an introduction on what to expect from the series – and Didjer’s tavern is just the first – coming with a nice map in b/w and with grid (and, unfortunately, the annoying numbers) as well as copious information on the seedy staff catering to scrupulous clientele. As a major plus, the wayside comes with a menu table – which I applaud. What I don’t consider as neat is that the description of the victuals unfortunately […]

The first of Michael Tumey’s Haiku of Horror series of supplements details a bath house and as such, since in Western culture they are not that common, we kick this supplement off with an introduction on the concept of bath houses that essentially takes the basic concept from Japanese culture and introduces the audience to Kaidan’s particular take on the concept as well as providing concise lists of prices.
