  • Vs. Ghosts Adventure: The Lights of Sand Island (VsM Engine) This adventure for the fun vs. Ghosts game clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 8 pages of content. The pages are laid out for digest-size (6’’ by 9’’/A5), which means you can fit up to 4 of them on a given sheet of paper if you’re conserving ink.   Now, first things first: The adventure takes place around mysterious circumstances in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore – my US-readers will probably be aware of this beautiful area at Lake Superior, but for an ole’ German like yours truly, checking them out via google etc. was rather inspiring and […]

  • Letters from the Flaming Crab: Her Story This installment of the Letters from the Flaming Crab clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, what is the theme here? Well, beyond the obligatory letter from our favorite plane-hopping ship, the book covers historical women and translates components associated with their lives into PFRPG-mechanics – but we also are introduced to the basics of their respective stories, as the eponymous title suggests.   The first of these women would be none other than Countess Elizabeth Báthory and the pdf begins with a thematically appropriate inquisition that allows the inquisitor […]
