  • 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.

  • 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 […]
