  • Faces of the Tarnished Souk – An NPC Collection This massive book clocks in at no less than 323 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 4 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 314 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved ahead in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   Well, first of all, I will deviate from my usual take on detailed analysis of the individual pieces of content herein -why? Because that would take AGES and bloat this review beyond the page-count where this would have any semblance of help for anyone of my readers. Beyond […]

  • GM’s Options: NPCs 2 – Druids, Fighters and Monks This installment of the GM’s Options-line is 20 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Much like the first installment of the series, we get statblocks in this pdf, in 3 different level-ranges -as 1st level, as 5th- and level 10-incarnations. Much like in the first installment, we also get advice for each character to integrate them into the upcoming Porphyra-campaign setting by Purple Duck Games as well as sample boons his respective incarnations may provide to PCs if they befriend him. The first character would be Connaghyn Halfhand (so nicknamed due to […]

  • Today I’m here to examine a product by Wordcasting Entertainment,   Advanced Class and NPC     This pdf is 50 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 46 pages of content – not a bad price-per-page-ratio, so let’s check this out!   We kick off this offering by Wordcasting Entertainment without an introduction, without a foreword, but rather get right into the first NPC-class, the Battle Commander. This class gets d10, 4+Int skills, full BAB (which lacks the “+” in the table), proficiency with all simple and martial weapons and shields (including tower shields) and a good fort-save. The class is rather interesting in that, from […]

  •   Not all too long ago, TPK Games joined the fray of 3pps and have since evolved into quite an interesting publisher focused on dark themes. Their growth can easily be seen when taking a look at their Infamous Adversary-line, which kicks off with a free one,   Infamous Adversaries: Slogar the Uncaring   This pdf is 20 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages advertisement, and 1 page SRD back cover, leaving 13 pages for Slogar the Uncaring, so, what is he about? After a full-color, one-page artwork of Slogar the half-orc and his zombie-steed daisy-pusher, we get a new short-fiction, Slogar’s statblock (half-orc cleric 8[theologian], btw.) as well as an elaboration of his motives […]
