  • The First Sentinel (OSR) This module clocks in at 28 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This adventure is intended for characters level 3 – 5, and, as far as old-school modules go, is dangerous, but not a meat-grinder – though there is one instance that can be considered to be brutal. It still should be noted that death is very much possible, and that a well-rounded party is recommended, with particularly a remove curse being a recommended thing to have. The adventure takes place in the Whisper Vale introduced in Whisper & Venom, and uses the same rules – descending AC, […]

  • Bird of a Feather (OSR) This adventure clocks in at 21 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page back cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This module uses the Swords & Wizardry rules, but can be easily converted to other OSR-rulesets. It is intended for characters level 3 – 4 and works best when used in conjunction with Whisper & Venom, as it takes place in the Whisper Vale and basically presents an overland sidequest. The module provides stats for all creatures from Whisper & Venom it uses, and sports a couple of magic items on the quirky side of things. The fantastic overland maps of […]

  • Whisper & Venom Compendium (OSR/PFRPG) This massive hardcover compendium of Whisper & Venom clocks in at 99 pages if you take away the editorial SRD, etc. for the OSR-version; for this version, I have consulted the hardcover, which a generous patreon supporter has sent my way as a present; while the person in question told me not to worry about a review, I figured it’s time to cover this.   I also have the PFRPG-version of this book, but I have that version only as a pdf. It clocks in at 142 pages, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page front cover, 1 page back cover, 1 page ToC, 5 pages editorial/dedications, leaving us with 131 pages of that iteration.   […]
