  • GM’s Miscellany: I loot the Body! (system neutral) This compilation of the „I Loot the Body!”-series (easily one of my favorite series-titles ever) clocks in at 56 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC/how to use, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 49 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Note: This is almost identical to the “PFRPG”-version with the black cover – which is almost system neutral. However, this system-neutral version did obviously get some polish – a couple of entries have been streamlined, references to specific languages have been made more general – you get the idea.   We begin this compilation with a […]

It happens all the time. What do you do first? You run down the magic items and armor, describe them, then the magic jewelry…and this is where things become problematic: You describe a ring? Suddenly it may be of importance. That weird figurine? hmmm…may be more worth, right? This is pretty annoying, at least to me – it makes smuggling unique and relevant items into PC […]

Even if you are not interested in 13th Age, please read this review. Finally: I do not own the pdf version of this book, so I can’t comment on it.   All right, so if you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, you’ll know what my introductory spiel will be here: If there is one thing I loathe about d20-based systems, it would be that they wrecked magic. What do I mean by this? The massive rules-interaction possibilities and mathematical crafting rules […]
