  • A Thousand Dead Babies (NGR/OSR) The second of Zzarchov Kowolski’s self-published dual-format NGR/OSR-adventures clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was requested by my patreons.   So, let’s talk about the pink elephant in the room first.
