    Mythic Monsters: Norse This installment of the Mythic Monsters-series clocks in at 34 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 23 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay, we begin this installment of mythic monsters not with feats or the like – no, we begin this with a pretty glorious array of monster options – namely 3 templates. It should be noted that both this series’ installment on giants and colossal threats work exceedingly well with these: Two are relatively simple: The MR […]

  • Southlands Bestiary This massive bestiary for use with the Southlands campaign setting (but not limited to it) clocks in at 122 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of backer-lists, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 3/4 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 112 1/4 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   I was a backer of the Southlands kickstarter, but am otherwise not involved with this book. My review is primarily based on the softcover print version of this book, though I consulted the electronic version to verify e.g. presence of bookmarks and similar components.   This book is pretty much a sans frills experience – the brief version […]

  • Treasury of the Orient This collection of magic items clocks in at 22 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page introduction, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 14 pages of raw content, so let’s take a look!   All right, so the items featured herein, as depicted on the handy table in the beginning span the range from humble 30 gp alchemical items to 180K gold (and one artifact) – but what kind of items do we actually get?   Well, the first one would be kokowai, a protective salve that supposedly wards off demons and temporarily nets the user the stench-quality. There are two magical […]

Much like in my review for the supplement dealing with the ARG, I am not going to judge the content herein on the virtues of the source material on which it builds (or the […]

Now if you’ve been following my reviews, you’ll probably have noticed that I don’t have a particular high opinion of any of the […]
