  • Psionics Augmented: Mythic Psionics This massive book clocks in at 75 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 71 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This supplement was moved up in my queue as a prioritized review by my patreons.   So there we have it – the massive sourcebook that brings the much beloved psionics system up to mythic proportions, but can it whether the test of numerical escalation while also providing some iconic tricks? We’ll see.   First of all, the pdf does something smart – it covers terminology. Why is that smart? Well psionic powers tend to have an Augment-option, whereas […]

  • Psionics Unleashed Revised This Core-psionics-system clocks in at 236 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 232 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   First of all: What is this book? There are multiple answers to this question, the first of which would simply be: The properly tidied-up, pretty version of the original Psionics Unleashed-book, with some added material.   To be more precise – this book contains the two new races of Forgeborn and Norals introduced in Psionics Augmented Vol. I. It also fully implements the talent-system introduced in Psionics Expanded (think of that book as the APG for psionics – just as good and just as […]

  • Psionics Embodied This book clocks in at 69 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 64 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   So, we’ve all been there – suddenly, mid-adventure, a PC bites the dust and the player has no time to make a new character for now, requiring the temporary use of an NPC. Or, more often, one sits on the DM’s side of the screen and makes *yet another* NPC-build. I know I do that and it is an annoying bottleneck. There are certain tricks and combos one stumbles across and then re-uses them time and again. The issue becomes […]

  • Ultimate Psionics Sooo…this is it – 453 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement… 448 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, to properly preface this – I’ve been using psionics for about 80% of my DMing career – from 2nd edition to the rather poor 3.0 version (and its kind-of-fixes by Malhavoc Press) to the great 3.5-version…and this is when I found Dreamscarred Press. I liked what I saw there and got just about everything. Fast forward to pathfinder and Psionics Unleashed. It might sound weird, but without this book, my campaigns would simply have missed a central ingredient, like a dish missing salt. It […]

  • Psionics Augmented Vol. I In a display of superb customer-service, Dreamscarred Press offers the bonus-content scored from the Ultimate Psionics-hardcover-compilation-book as its own pdf, so let’s take a look, shall we? This pdf is 78 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with a whopping 75 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   We kick off this supplement with new races, first of which would be the Forgeborn – Half-constructs (the type is reprinted from the ARG) that have been engineered from people blended with what seem to be mineralized growths – thankfully setting them distinctly apart from the huge array of different construct races already available for PFRPG.

  • Psionic Items of Legend: Dissonance, Wind of the Mind This installment of the Psionic Items of Legend-series is 6 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/introduction,1 page SRD, leaving us with 3 pages , so let’s take a look!   What is this item? Well, as you probably know by now, legendary items come with a set of prerequisites and improve over the levels. So what is Dissonance – first of all, the weapon is a meteorite hammer – a cool weapon type that hasn’t been covered. Story-wise, this weapon crafted from an amethyst meteorite, was created to make concentration for foes almost impossible, thus allowing the first wielders to throw off the shackles of the dreaded intellect […]

  • Some books are just a LOT of work to review: This is one of them:     Psionics Expanded: Advanced Psionics Guide     This massive book is 220 pages long,  1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 216 (!!!!) pages of content, so let’s check this out!   Well, how to review this? This book is essentially the “Advanced Player’s Guide” for psionics, kicking off with an introduction that covers all the psionic aces and core races and their respective takes on the new classes introduced in this book.   I already did in-depth analysis of the respective component pdfs that worked as a kind of playtest for the compilation […]

  • Adventure Quarterly #1    This new magazine is 76, one page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving a whopping 70 pages of content, so what exactly is this new magazine? Well, first of all, it is a collection of 3 adventures by ADAM DAIGLE, TIM CONNORS and TIM HITCHCOCK. Yep. If those names don’t ring any bells, I probably can’t help you – they are stellar authors. Secondly, we get short supplemental articles. Sound familiar? The closest analogy I could think of is the following: If KQ is the spiritual successor of Dragon magazine, Adventure Quarterly could be considered the heir to Dungeon magazine and the very […]
