  • Smile with Us, Friend…(OSR) This weird module clocks in at 22 pages in the pdf version – 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial,1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 16 pages of content. The pages are laid out for a booklet/digest-sized A5-size (6’’ by 9’’), which means you can fit up to 4 on a sheet of paper when trying to conserve ink/toner. Enough delays, let’s take a look!   It should be noted that one of the pages herein is devoted to a mutation table that overlaps with Violent Media’s mutation supplement – it is decent, but if you have access to a more detailed one, I’d suggest going with that […]

  • Wizardzine #1 – The Aquatic Issue (OSR) This e-zine clocks in at 52 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 4 pages of SRD, 1 page space for notes, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 43 pages of content. It should be noted that, as in most OSR-supplements, the pages are formatted for booklet-size (6’’ by 9’’, A5), which means that you can fit up to 4 pages on a given sheet of paper when printing this out. Personally, I’d at least contemplate getting the softcover PoD – I based most of review on that. All righty, let’s take a look!   Ah, one more thing, in case that’s relevant to you: The OSR-engine employed […]

Personally, I consider the super low price for print to be well worth it – my review is mostly based on the softcover print edition of this supplement.   Okay, first things first – this is basically a […]

  • Pusher Gnomes (OSR) This little pdf clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page back cover, (no SRD), leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, first things first: Pusher Gnomes, as depicted here, are situated in Knight Owl Games’ Meatlandia-setting (review forthcoming), and the vast majority of the gnomes encountered in the setting belong to this trade, which stirred up no small amount of resentment. As written, they, flavor-wise, sport a significant distaste for meat-magic and the information contains quite a few references to Meatlandian specialties, though it should be noted that the meat (haha!) of the pdf can be used sans access to […]

The full-color cover artwork is included as a jpg and the scale-less map is also included thus. I own the softcover print version of this book, which sports the map as a back cover, just fyi. I will base my review mostly on the print version. While there is also a hardcover version, I do not own it.   This review was sponsored by one of my generous patreons, to be undertaken at my leisure.   “Someone has read Carcosa!” Ouch, ouch, ouch…hey, I promised I’ll use that quote!

My review is mostly based on the hardcover-version of the module, though I have also consulted the pdf and checked its functionality. The review is based on the fourth printing of the module, annotated and expanded by Zak S..   First things first: This is a very dark module. If you can’t […]

Nice!   Before you’re asking – the ruleset this is based on would be Swords & Wizardry, so if you’re familiar with the various OSR-rulesets, you’ll know what to expect here in that regard. After a brief introduction by the author and a […]

It should be noted that the pages adhere to a 1-column standard and the pdf is formatted for an 6” by 9” (A4)-booklet size-standard – if you print this out, you could potentially try to fit multiple pages on one sheet of paper, but I would not recommend that here, due to some elements of the layout. Instead, I’d suggest going for the PoD-softcover. My review is primarily based on the print version of this supplement, which was kindly provided by one of my patreons, with […]

Well, picture a setting, the Strange New World, that puts fantasy tropes in an era reminiscent of the interim between the two World Wars, as seen through the lens of the classic pulp magazines of old. The history of the world is thus somewhat akin to what you’d expect, though it should be noted than nice, poster-style artworks provide cliff-notes versions of what once was. It should be noted, though, that the focus of this book lies exclusively […]

As you can surmise, I actually own the hardcover, namely the second printing, which was provided by a generous patreon for the purposes of reviewing it at my convenience.

It should be noted that the layout of this pdf makes it possible to fit up to 4 pages on a sheet of paper, being generally intended for an A5/ 6” by 9”-standard.   We begin this pdf with “A Rather Unfair Trap” -a pool of water with a submerged cage containing a ruby. Touching the ruby switches places, potentially drowning the victim. Such a victim then slowly dissolves and the liquid changes the brain into a new ruby.   Next up are two d30-tables – one […]

The PoD-version sports the hex-map, which in the pdf is inside, on the back, in color.   Why encouragement? Well, yes, this module was originally penned for the benefit of Mandy Morbid, with artwork by Gennifer Bone and Wayne Snyder, cartography by Dyson Logos and content mainly by Rafael Chandler, though James Edward Raggi IV did write one […]

As such, the usual disclaimer regarding adult topics applies.

  • What’s your Sign? (system neutral) This’ll be a quick one. Why? This pdf covers 2 pages and it is FREE – one page contains the cover, the other the content.   What we get here would be a d4-drop-table with 12 fantasy signs: Each sign has 4 entries that you can just roll or choose from. These basically represent fluffy characteristics which may or may not influence the game – while e.g. 1 in 6 chances and similar notes are in concordance with OSR gameplay, there is no reason this cannot be applied to other, more complex systems as a little flavor guideline.   The signs covered would be Lemurs (which can yield, to list some examples, a keen sense […]

  • The Northlands Saga Complete This GIGANTIC tome clocks in at 795 pages if you take away editorial, ToC, etc.. No, that is NOT a typo. While I was a backer of the kickstarter that made this book, I was in no way involved in the production of this epic tome.   All right, so the introduction tells us a bit of what this is: A take on Norse adventuring, with a healthy dose of the weird, fantastic and sword & sorcery sprinkled in. It should be noted that the 8 pregens from the Player’s Guide, as well as the excellent “Winter’s Teeth” stand-alone module from the “Long Winter’s Night”-series are included in the back of the tome.   Okay, so […]

I covered all three big supplements for it, so if you’re not familiar with the game or unsure whether this is for you, take a look at the respective reviews.

I backed the kickstarter for Northlands Saga back in the day, but otherwise was not involved in this project.   This module is intended for levels 12- 14 and is set in Frog God Games’ Lost Lands campaign setting. It can be run in another context/setting without any hassle whatsoever, provided Norse deities exist; its raw content clocks in at 14 pages, if you take away the pdf’s editorial, cover, etc..   This being an adventure-module, the following contains […]
