  • 20 Things: Curio Shop & Pawnbrokers (system neutral) This installment of the #20 Things-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Curio shops are laces I really adore IRL – there is something I enjoy about the uncertainty they represent in our structured “everything-always-available” world that makes them appeal to me; in media, there are plenty of examples wherein curio shops and pawnbrokers represent plot points, angles and exciting environments. As such, it’s pretty odd that so few supplements capitalize on how cool these can be.   This pdf begins with […]

  • 5E Mini-Dungeon: The Case of the Scrupulous Pawnbroker (5e) This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Oh, and the series now comes in an archive that also contains…*drumroll* a .jpg-version and a .tif-version of the map! Yeah, that’s pretty amazing! The dungeon’s number-less version of the map doesn’t sport any deceptive trap icons or traps – kudos, though the place where the secret doors are can still be gleaned by proximity…but if you conceal that part, it works well.

  • Mini-Dungeons: The Case of the Scrupulous Pawnbroker This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right!   This mini-dungeon begins with the PCs having either a business relationship or […]
