  • Swordmaster This pdf is 23 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1/2 empty page, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 19 1/2 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Dex-based combatants have always been popular in style, but it is a fact that in d20, the fencing/duelist/swashbuckling characters often felt a bit off. Dervish Dance might be powerful, but it is limited in both fluff and execution and does not manage to offset the investment when compared to a similar str-based build. The Swordmaster seeks to remedy that by providing a dex-based front-line fighter. Does it succeed?   Mechanically, the class comes with d8, 2+Int skills per level, proficiency with all simple and martial swords […]

  • Hej everybody, today I’ll take a look at Dreadfox Games’ other Grimoires, starting with   Grimoire Tempestus This pdf is 38 pages long,  1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s check this one out!   This installment of Dreadfox Games’ Grimoire-series deals with a vast selection of evocation-spells. After 7 pages of spell-lists covering all the core-classes, APG-classes and the magus, we dive headlong into a selection of evocation spells, so do they do anything but blandly blowing up things?   Now, evocations are essentially mechanically not too exciting – and this pdf somewhat strives to change that. Take the very first extract, Alchemist’s Revenge: Almost impossible to […]
