Now, where’s war, there are vehicles and if you’re like me, you love the […]

  • Gonzo This supplement clocks in at a massive 65 pages of content, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages blank, leaving us with 60 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Wait, one note before that – this pdf comes with a second version that provides a 2-page layout, but for the purpose of page-count, I opted for the one-page version. Got that? All right!   So this book kicks off with a definition of what “gonzo” is – in short, it is an experiment in testing out the malleability of pathfinder, of providing weird ideas, in being somewhat bonkers. It also aims to retain the functionality of the system and maintaining enjoyment […]

  • Necropunk: Welshen Source Book This sourcebook detailing the second of the two mayor factions/societies in Necropunk clocks in at 41 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 37.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   We kick off with a more than aptly-written introductory fluff that makes me once again crave a necropunk AP and a novel before diving straight into the new crunch, namely, Welshen-specific archetypes, first of which would be the H’devvel – a kind of living philosopher/artist who receives points with which to inspire allies – for 24 hours. Other than that, the ability utilizes interesting bonus-type juggling and can be considered an interesting variant […]

  • Necropunk Bestiary This bestiary for Little Red Goblin Games’ SUPERB, intelligent dark-scifi-setting necropunk clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1.5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 40.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This pdf kicks off with the new alien type and all required information to create more aliens – and these creatures are more colorful than you’d imagine – weird, yes, but also pretty organic. Resonating the themes of Necropunk, the aliens provided herein often hearken back towards strange insectoid beings or creatures that look like they may have spawned in an alternate evolution, so kudos. Attack Bug Swarms, gigantic clusters of nanomachines that can scourge and […]

  • Dragon Tiger Ox This massive book by Little Red Goblin Games clocks in at 172 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 7 pages of SRD (with some pages duplicating text from the adventure at the end of the book), leaving us with 163 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Now if you’ve been following my reviews, you’ll know that I usually take apart crunch for races and classes in a pretty detailed manner. The problem with a book of this size and my approach is evident -were I to do that here, the review would bloat beyond compare. Hence, I’ll be somewhat less detailed than usual in this review, picking out the cherries and the […]

  • Tome of Twisted Things This pdf is 34 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 31 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   We kick this pdf off with the Darkborn-PrC – essentially a character who opts to take the wickedness into him/herself, slowly becoming the monster they ought to destroy – in the words of “The Dark knight” -either die a hero or become a monster. The PrC spans 10 levels and ofefrs d10, 4+Int skills per level, 3/4 BAB-progression, 7 levels of spell progression and medium ref-saves. Unlike many other PrC, this class comes with a fighter/melee-centric alternative that offers full BAB-progression, but no spell-progression. Rules-wise, […]

  • War Journal II This pdf is 28 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content – quite a bit of ground to cover, so let’s dive in!   After a short intro-narrative, we get the first new base-class, the combat medic, who gets full BAB, good fort and will-saves, d8, 2+Int skills per level, proficiency with simple and martial weapons as well as all shields (and even tower shields) – and no spells. Yes. This is actually a healer-class that doesn’t use divine spells – so let’s look at whether this works out: Essentially, they get a special ability called “Field Medicine” that allows you to expend a use […]

  • Tome of Spell & Sword This pdf is 27 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let’s check this out!   The pdf kicks off with a new base-class, the Dimensional Knight, who gets d8, 4+Int skills per level, 3/4 BAB-progression, good will-saves, proficiency with simple and martial weapons as well as light armors. Dimensional knights also cast arcane spells of up to 6th level and cast them spontaneously, but use intelligence as a casting attribute – a deviation from established cha/int-casting-style dichotomies you should be aware of. They also get arcane pool points equal to 1/2 class level + Int-mod that partially stacks with e.g. the […]
