  • Lost Lore: Ecology of the Troll This installment of Frog God Games’ Lost Lore-series clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 3/4 of a page blank, leaving us with 4 1/4 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with a brief piece of in-character prose, setting the mood…and then dive into the genesis of the troll, here depicted in the telling of a legend, where mighty Eirik, lord of the North, instructed the dark sorceror Inghard to find a way to gain soldiers that would not de – and hence, in truly compelling prose, we accompany these two on the way to the doom that befalls […]

  • Lost Lore: Ecology of the Basilisk This installment of the Lost Lore-series clocks in on 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 3/4 of a page blank, leaving us with 5 1/4 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay, so the first thing I actually noticed (and enjoyed) about this pdf is that it’s actually written in character – so yes, the reader is basically diving into the field notes of Lady Daxitroniusilluminarious Jaedall – and know what? I really like the style in which this is presented: Beginning with a brief anecdote, we go on to properly classify the creature within the context of its history and physiological contexts – and […]

  • Lost Lore: Town of Glory This little supplement clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so what is this?   Well, know how I love kingdom-building and consider Ultimate Campaign and they expansions released by Legendary Games pretty much one of the most awesome things ever? If you’ve been following my reviews, then this will come as no surprise. What may come as a surprise, though, is that I think that the kingdom-building-rules don’t work perfectly in the highest and lowest echelons – as recently commented on the boards, I’m waiting for a supplement to add the mythic element to kingdom building at the high […]

  • Lost Lore: Horses of the Wild This installment of the Lost Lore-series clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content!   Okay, so I wanted to start this review with a Richard III-quote…but alas, the pdf already did that. What does it sport? Well, for one, it sports basic light horse stats…and 5 variants of light horses, specifically bred for different tasks and with mechanically-relevant repercussions. The heavy horse receives a similar treatment, mind you – and a horse can make all the difference: A steed of proper pedigree can help you dealing with nobility and certain breeds can make the difference between life and death, […]

  • Lost Lore: The Portalist This supplement of Frog God Games’ Lost Lore-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   What is the portalist? The simple reply would be that it is a new base-class that gets d10, full BAB-progression, 4+Int mod skills per level, good Ref-saves, proficiency with simple and light as well as single-handed martial weapons and light armor, but not shields. Portalists receive +1 to initiative at 1st level, increasing this bonus by +1 at 7th level and ever 4 levels thereafter, but their signature trick, obvious, is the eponymous ability to create portals.   A portalist […]
