  • Lands of Lunacy Setting Guide (OSR) This supplement clocks in at roughly 27 pages if you take away editorial, ToC, etc. – why “roughly”? Page Zero contains an etymological definition of “Lunacy” that blends actual fact with some fantastic tidbits, and the final page has only approximately half a page of text, so it comes out at this page-count.   If the title wasn’t ample clue, this supplement does deal with madness to a degree and starts with a proper disclaimer. Personally, I consider it laudable, yet also a bit sad that nowadays, our elfgame-supplements, particularly ones like this, need such a disclaimer. To contextualize this: The supplement is probably as PG-13 as can be.  This is not a horror […]

  • Lands of Lunacy Setting Guide (5e) This supplement clocks in at roughly 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page mission statement, 1 page back cover. It also features a brief etymology of the word “lunacy” on one otherwise mostly blank page, one that blends the real and fantastic in a pretty smart manner. As a whole, we thus have approximately 27 pages of content. If the title wasn’t ample clue, this supplement does deal with madness to a degree and starts with a proper disclaimer.

  • Lands of Adventure (Porphyra RPG) This supplement clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 3 pages of SRD, leaving us with 20 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, first things first: This is a supplement for the Porphyra RPG, the currently continuation of Pathfinder 1’s rules that is currently being designed by Purple Duck games. The Porphyra RPG seeks to streamline a few aspects, but otherwise has the ambition of being 100% PFRPG 1 compatible. Thus, while I will designate Porphyra RPG books as such, you should have no problems whatsoever using them in conjunction with PFRPG. That being said, a couple of formatting conventions are different. As per the writing of this review, […]

  • Lands of Porphyra Campaign Setting This massive campaign setting clocks in at 214 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with a massive 219 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Porphyra…Purple Duck Games’ in-house setting is massive, it’s regional (and extremely crunchy) player’s guide clocking in regularly at 60+ pages…and unlike most campaign settings, this world was not crowdfunded…it just slowly, steadily, came to be…which is an impressive feat in my book. Anyways, Porphyra’s details and unique components are many and have been suffusing Purple Duck Games-supplements for years: Whether it’s the unique mini-game arabakmpsi, the lovecraft gaming toolkit or other offerings – never obtrusive, but the […]

  • Mundane No More: Texts and Tomes II – The Lands Beyond This expansion to Rich Howard’s Mundane No More-pdf on research rules and tomes clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page ARD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The pdf kicks off with a minor errata of book 1 (which, in my opinion, has nothing to do in the pdf-age -why not simply update the original file?), but oh well.   So what does the book contain – well, to cut a long story short, we receive 4 different sample tomes, including background stories etc. – which would be […]
