  • Demon Cults: The Emerald Order This installment of Kobold Press’ Demon Cults-series clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page advertisement, 2/3 of a page SRD, leaving us with 10 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   “A Demon Cult? Urgh.” If that was your response, then you’re pretty much like me and oversaturated by bland “doing it for evil’s sake”-idiot-plot-device adversaries. Thankfully, Kobold Press seems to have taken up the mantle to make secret societies and organizations no longer suck and actually have a distinct identity – at least that’s the goal. So can the Emerald Order fulfill it?   Well, for once, the Emerald Order is not actually a […]

  • Prestigeous Organizations: The Order of the Nullblades This pdf clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So what are the Nullblades? Essentially, they can be considered an organization fiercely opposed to the MACS-suffering casters – megalomanical arcane caster syndrome that tends too infect just about every high-level spellcaster. You know the drill – the point where the friendly arch-wizard experiments a bit too much and makes the fabric of reality unravel, transforming the town of Bimberton into undead oreo-cookies. And this makes sense in-game to me – there would probably be an organization like this, annoying, harassing and potentially, eliminating spellcasters they […]

  • Charity Product: The Merciful Cousins Cavalier Order This pdf is 4 pages long, 2/3 of a page front cover (with a sketch by Wayne Reynolds!!!), 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 1/3 of a page content, so let’s take a look!   The dragon has raided the village, the orc-horde has rampaged through the town, the necromancer-king is ravaging the country-side or the insane druid has conjured forth tornados and tidal waves – business as usual for adventurers: They set off, kill the bad guy and there – all well! Well, not in my game. I always considered it weird that there was no repercussion for the people – beyond a motive for closure/revenge – what help is it […]

  • The Order of the Black Earth The first player faction-offering for the Vathak-setting is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 10 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Player faction? Well, yes, for this is more than an organization – devoted to the Book of Black Earth, an ancient tome of cataclysmic prophecies unearthed from ruins led to genesis of a secret organization – on available for PCs, though personally, I’D rather suggest this ephemeral cabal more as antagonists. But more on that later: Drawing in a cool professional way on how factions in Golarion are presented, we get the basic faction rules regarding prestige explained to us […]
