  • Book of the Faithful: Oracle Mysteries This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with two pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Why does this book exist? Well, author Dale McCoy Jr. considers mysteries as lenses through which the oracle should attempt to see life -and at the same time be MYSTERIOUS. Hence, we get two new ones:   First would be the Fitness-mystery, which nets a climb speed, immunity to fatigue (and later exhaustion), +2 to Str, Dex or Con that is later enhanced to +4, +10 ft. speed (and doge/mobility as bonus feats), bonuses to CMB, slow falling, minor natural AC, 1 minute per level sprout bird wings […]

  • Cavalier Mounts This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This pdf is Dale McCoy Jr.’s answer versus the problem of boring cavalier mounts for e.g. dwarves and other races – ignoring the horse/camel limitation in favor for some more exotic, weird mounts – a total of 11 different base statistics, all of which advance at 4th level (with one exception, the wolfhound advances at 7th level) and the creatures are interesting indeed:   We get a riding ant, elks, riding beetles, cave salamanders, giant gila monsters, the obligatory riding eagle, riding hawks, spiders and OSTRICHS and TUMBLING PIGS! Hell yeah!   […]

  • Book of Multifarious Munitions: Vehicles of War This pdf is 12 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, 1 page ToC/introduction, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   All right, first of all: I LOVE that we get new vehicles – they feature heavily in my campaign, make combat more dynamic and bring whole new tactical options and cinematic flair to a game. That being said, not a whole lot of books have tackled the subject so far, in spite of the existence of these rules since ultimate combat. Enter Jon Brazer Enterprises’ second Book of Multifarious Munitions and we thankfully get some new fodder to […]
