Still, there’d be enough space… – but hey, the masterpiece write-ups feature the pretty self-explanatory glyphs), 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content, so let’s take a look! In case you were wondering, btw.: This Everyman Mini is exclusively available as part of the Klickstarter-bundle.   We start off with two new 1st level masterpieces, the first of which would be the Dance of Infinite Steps for […]

  • Everyman Minis: Creepy Creatures This Mini is currently only available as part of the Klickstarter bundle, and it actually is not a mini – the pdf clocks in at 23 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages of SRD, leaving us with 17 pages, so let’s take a look!   In case you missed out on one of my favorite creature types in all of Pathfinder, the introductory page recaps what a levialogos is (plural: levialogi) – first introduced in Paranormal Adventures, I’ve been a huge fan of these super-deadly foes and their ability to actually withstand the punishing powers of high-level PCs.   The creatures contained herein, just fyi, all come with their own original full-color […]

They are a set of occult objects that increase in potency when combined. An occultist can select a panoply when choosing a new implement school, but in order to do so, they must have selected the implement school for all implements involved at least once. As with any other implement school, learning a panoply’s implement school nets access to the resonant power and base focus power, and the other focus powers may […]

A minor nitpick from the get-go – the rules verbiage tends to state “At level XYZ”, when PFRPG usually phrases that “At 3rd level…” – it’s a minor thing and won’t influence […]

The first of these would be the anarchist inquisitor, who receives access to mesmerist spells, but requires an (un-) holy symbol to cast them – this replaces monster lore and track. Domain […]

As you could glean from the structure of the denoting compound, wyrmtouched are essentially a novel take on the draconic-heritage race; instead of assuming a singular cultural heritage, the race adheres to a similar origin paradigm as planetouched races, resulting in wyrmtouched being born to parents of different races, provided they have the requisite traces of draconic blood in their ancestry. The write-up thus assumes parental races for the physical vital […]

  • Mythic Marvels This mythic plug-in clocks in at 22 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 13 pages of content – though, as always, it should be noted that there is quite a lot of content cramped inside of this pdf.   This review was requested to be moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreons.   So, what is this? It is, in short, a book that provides the means for GMs to make mythic rules more than just a template to be added on top of characters […]

  • Places of Power: Dead Man’s Run This installment of the Places of Power-series clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The location known as “Dead Man’s Run” is something refreshingly different, as far as I’m concerned – this stretch of land is situated on the border between two kingdoms; per default, that would be an elven kingdom and a human one, but it’d be rather easy to change the kingdoms to different races, should your game require that. From initial hostilities and border skirmishes, a truce sprang – one that ultimately […]
