  • Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures: Imperial Land Griffon This installment of the Crawthorne’s Catalog of Creatures series clocks in at 5 pages – the front cover containing the header, creature artwork and the social media icons/homepage of misfit studios. The SRD takes up about 1.5 pages and the editorial is in a sidebar – to get all the material you thus have to print out the cover with the icons as well.   So, what is the land griffon? Well, according to the nice cover artwork they are basically non-airborne griffon with bird-like forelegs – as such, their carrying capacity is reduced – which is something I like. However, containing attribute modifications via class features, it would have been nice to […]

  • The Mists of Akuma – Imperial Dragons (5e) The fourth free preview-pdf for Mists of Akuma clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page list of things to expect, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content, one of which, as always, is devoted to the continent of Soburin, so let’s take a look!   After a gorgeous art and proverb, we dive into the wonderfully crafted prose that details the history and nature of Imperial dragons – and no, they’re not conveniently color-coded. The pdf’s crunchy meat supplementing this prose would be three sample dragons – the wyrmling underworld dragon (challenge 6) that gets a nasty multiattack, necrotic breath and frightful […]

  • Player Paraphernalia – Imperial Druid (Archetype) (Revised Edition) This installment of the Player Paraphernalia-series clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 4 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   The Imperial Druid’s angle, concept-wise, would be the inherent natural order of things within the animal kingdom, providing control over this concept by graces of the celestial Court. Imperial Druids thus need to be neutral good and may utilize metal weapons and monk weapons, gaining their proficiencies…but at the cost of all armor and shield proficiencies.   The imperial druid also receives an imperial bond – either a domain chosen from air, earth, fire, good, celestial […]

  • Imperial Relationships This pdf clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 2 pages editorial/introduction, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 12 pages of raw content, so what is this?   The short answer to this question is ultimately a very simple one – this would be the application of the relationship-rules (which unfortunately only work for 6-part-APs) to the Jade Regent adventure path.   Now obviously, as with the other AP-plug-ins, Legendary Games can obviously not use Paizo’s IP and proper names, though it should be noted that you can’t probably make the identity of NPCs more obvious to the discerning GM – each of the NPCs […]
