  • Heroes of the East III This supplement is 30 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2/3 of a page SRD, leaving us with  27 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   After a short introduction on what to expect, we immediately kick off with the first supplemental base-class found herein, the Yamabushi (which is unfortunately named just like a certain already existing class by Zombie Sky Press).
