  • Letters from the Flaming Crab: Ioun Artifacts This installment of the Letters from the Flaming Crab-series clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Ioun stones are magic items near and dear to my heart; and, after the usual, well-written framing narrative penned on the world-hopping UCS Flaming Crab, the pdf makes one thing clear – the ioun stones herein are not priced; they are intended to have the proper GM-control and they should represent unique treasure. They all clock in at either CL 12 or, most of the time, CL 20 – which may be closer to how […]

  • Letters from the Flaming Crab: The Household Magic Catalog   This letter from the planes-hopping vessel UCS Flaming Crab, faithfully transcribed by J Gray, clocks in at 39 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with…35 pages of content? Woa, that is A LOT for the low asking price…so let’s take a closer look at this pdf…   …and once we do, we’ll realize that the title was not kidding: In the tradition of Aurora’s (At this point, if you get this reference, you’re part of the old guard…) or, more fittingly, the Sears catalog – for those of you not in the know (and my German readers), picture this like a Quelle […]

  • Villain Codex II: Adversaries for Advanced Heroeshttp://rpk-tramplin.ru The second installment of the Villain Codex-series clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page of introduction, 1 page of SRD, leaving us with 15 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with Evetta Laxley, a changeling dreamweaver witch, running an inn as a front for her nefarious operations. Solid one. Ferracyr would be a metal elementalist wizard…but he actually is a venerable elf, which is an interesting twist on what you’d expect – and yes, the ancient pioneer has schemes to prolong his life in nasty ways…but may his mind perhaps even warrant it? Interesting angle!   Speaking of interesting: […]

  • Wayfinder #14 The 14th issue of the eminent Wayfinder fanzine, by fans, for fans, clocks in at 80 pages, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 6 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 70 massive pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay. This is NOT a review in the traditional sense. Why? Because I am NOT going to analyze piece by piece, content by content everything featured herein – with a book as dense as Wayfinder #14, this would bloat the review to a level that would benefit no one, considering its free availability. What I’ll be doing instead, is first telling you a bit about Wayfinder…and what it means to me.   […]
