  • Ultimate Relationships: The Cassisian Detective This installment of the Ultimate Relationship-series clocks in at 8 pages – 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page how to use, 1 page SRD leaving us with 4 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, so this series provides romantic interests for the PCs as per the Ultimate Relationship-rules, so I’m assuming you’re familiar with them. If not, check out that pdf first (and/or my review for it).   All right, so this time around…we romance a helmet with wings. No, I’m not kidding. Look up the artwork. The statblock is the most complex we’ve seen so far in the series, though, unlike another review I noticed, I […]

If not, check out that pdf first (and/or my review for it).   Okay, in supposedly a formatting glitch, we start this file with a double header: “The rabbit Prince” is oddly printed sans context above the proper headline, “The Viking Maiden.” Stat-wise, the lady would be an unchained barbarian with the […]

  • Imperial Relationships This pdf clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 2 pages editorial/introduction, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 12 pages of raw content, so what is this?   The short answer to this question is ultimately a very simple one – this would be the application of the relationship-rules (which unfortunately only work for 6-part-APs) to the Jade Regent adventure path.   Now obviously, as with the other AP-plug-ins, Legendary Games can obviously not use Paizo’s IP and proper names, though it should be noted that you can’t probably make the identity of NPCs more obvious to the discerning GM – each of the NPCs […]

  • The Secrets of the Masquerade Reveler This pdf clocks in at 40 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 35 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   So, what is the masquerade reveler? In the time-honored tradition of Rite Publishing, we are not introduced to a bland exposition, but rather are immediately drawn into the material, as a reveler explains the very essence of what makes the archetype tick, relationships with others and the fluff in expertly written in character prose that is actually a joy to behold and read.   Now I didn’t answer, so, again, what *is* the Masquerade Reveler? Well, on the […]

  • Convergent Paths: Fey Archetypes The second installment of Rite Publishing’s Convergent Paths-series is 16 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 11 pages of content – so let’s take a look, shall we?   Following the direction established in the first issue, we once again have the class options provided herein framed by a well-written narrative – and honestly, I do really enjoy these. If you read as many crunch-heavy supplements as I do, you’re welcoming supplements that don’t read like an EULA. Just wanted to for once acknowledge this, as the narrative also roots the content in a thematic context and, from experience, I know that […]
