  • GM’s Screen: Borderland Keep (system neutral) This GM-screen-insert clocks in at 6 pages, though only one page of these is actually content.   Now, it should be noted that this insert, structurally, sports dressing that you can spontaneously use, partially compiled from previous Raging Swan Press dressing books.   One column notes 10 entries for dressing, including sparring dummies and smoke rising from a chimney of the fort. Minor complaint here: Dressing outside and inside should probably be separate. The second 10 entries are devoted to sights and sounds, which does have a bit of an overlap with the previous table: A single boot jutting from the mud due to rain (table 1), compared to a raven squatting on the […]

  • Mythic Maps: Island Keep This Map-pack comes in a zip-file that sports two folders: One containing high-res jpegs, one that sports pdfs.   Let’s start with the jpegs – these come with full-color and b/w-versions as well as a rendition of the cover – both come in two versions: One sports labels that denote which buildings are which, whereas the others come without them for maximum immersion.

The southern shore also sports a significant array of […]
