  • 5E Mini-Dungeon: Shadow of Madness (5e) This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Oh, and the series now comes in an archive that also contains…*drumroll* a .jpg-version and a .tif-version of the map! Yeah, that’s pretty amazing! The dungeon’s number-less version of the map doesn’t sport any deceptive trap icons or traps – kudos, though the place where the secret doors are can still be gleaned by proximity…but if you conceal that part, it works well. In short: Full, proper VTT-support and help for […]

  • Mini-Dungeon: Shadows of Madness This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right!   Wizards strive as wizards are wont to do, for knowledge – and much like dwarves […]

  • Class Expansions: Mysteries of Madness This installment of the Class Expansions-series is 4 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   As you could glean from the title, we get new mysteries in here, both of which are introduced with some aptly-written prose before we delve into the respective crunch. First of which would be The Cacophony, which immediately made me flash back to Demons & Wizard’s “Touched by the Crimson King”‘s introductory Discordia-chanting – alongside the fluff-text evoking the concept of Vestiges as a nice nod for aficionados of pact magic, we’re off to a good start. A total of 10 revelations are […]
