  • Adventure Path Iconics: Path of Jade This collection of pregens for the Jade Regent AP is 29 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, 1 page caravan-sheet, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Now this is the second set of pregens that a 3rd party publisher has released for the Jade Regent AP and hence, I’ll compare how it fares with Imperial Heroes by Legendary Games. That out of the way, we get a short introductory page that explains how Paizo’s intellectual property is maintained before providing us with the first character – Chan-Ona, a cynean wizard who may seem ponderous, but in fact is a brilliant scholar with a good […]

  • NeoExodus Chronicles: The Quartermaster’s Handbook This pdf is 27 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   As an equipment book, we kick off with the section on mundane equipment and honestly, many of them had me wonder why the items had not been covered before – take for example the two versions of ball and chain we get in here or the tracing paper. Among the items, we also get some anachronisms like razor wire, which, while personally I like the idea, will probably not fit in with every setting. The Field Medic Kit deserves special mention, as it allows for the non-magical removal of […]

Now the NeoExodus campaign setting has been around for a while and this book fills a niche I think any 3pp who endeavors to create a campaign setting should try to fill. Which one you ask? Well, whether it’s the NPC-Codex or the general statblock section in the Gamemastery Guide, any DM needs a selection of statblocks to fall back on.

  • Bilecrawler   This pdf is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving 2 pages of content. This is straightforward, we get two incarnations of a slug-like monster somewhat similar to the Ankheg. -Bilecrawler (CR 3): A nice slug-like critter that spews caustic bile and hunts by digging up, surprising enemies. -Vilecrawler (CR 5): The domesticated, weaponized advanced version of the Bilecrawler, this is just a bigger, more bad-ass version of the Bilecrawler. Their flavor-text includes some references to other critters not yet released and made me interested in them as well. The artwork of the creature is top-notch and cool. There is one editing relic in the passage on their tunnels.   Conclusion: There is nothing […]
