  • Addendum: Shape Shifting (DICELESS) This installment of the Addendum-series for DICELESS roleplaying clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 16 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Shape shifting is contextualized as a power that is neither wholly of the Eidolon, nor of the Umbra; instead, it is an oscillating power of change in between and for this reason, mastery of either and shape shifting are a volatile combination, but more on that later.   Structure-wise, shape shifting is tiered in 4 levels: Lesser Shape Shifting (15 pts.), Shape Shifting (35 pts.), Advanced Shape Shifting (65 pts.) and Exalted Shape Shifting (85 pts.). Generally, shape shifting […]

  • Gossamer Heroes This LoGaS-supplement is 12 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 10 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This pdf kicks off with a short introduction to the matter at hand – namely, the depiction of new player characters, readily generated at the suggestions of Kickstarter-patrons to serve as player characters. hence, by intention and to allow for a user-base as wide as possible, the characters herein have a limited breadth of powers, which should not be considered a detriment, though.   So, who do we get? First of them would be Cordelia – a kind of pirate-queen/gossamer lady studded with quite an array of different unique magical […]

  • Lords of Gossamer and Shadows Addendum: Empathy (Diceless) This pdf clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This supplement details a new Lesser Power for LoGaS, namely empathy. the power costs 30 points and is based on Psyche, though long-term use also makes endurance important. As you probably have gleaned by now, Empathy allows you to open a gate to other minds, for better and for worse – causing or diminishing pain, even controlling lesser minds becomes possible, but at a risk – the channel opened goes two ways and makes one susceptible to psychic attacks, Icons and magic in […]

  • Lords of Gossamer & Shadows Addendum: Blessings & Curses This supplement for DICELESS LoGaS is 8 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   Based on Psyche, the ability to bestow blessings & curses costs 35 points – 15 points for the ability and a pool of 20 points to make said blessings & curses. Once these are used up, the rest of the required point costs are converted to bad stuff or detracted from good stuff. So…what’s the difference between stuff and these conditions? The pdf does explain that rather nice, and the process of delivering blessings & curses is also covered in […]
