  • Mists of Akuma: Cursed Soul of the Scorpion Samurai (5e) This adventure for the Mists of Akuma-setting clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 38 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Now it should also be noted that two pages of the pdf are devoted to providing a recap of the mechanics for both dignity and haitoku, the attributes introduced by Mists of Akuma. The module is intended for 7th level PCs and should be used with a well-rounded group. While this is intended to be run in the bleak, mist-shrouded lands of Soburin, the module works in […]

  • Samurai of Porphyra This installment of the Porphyran class-option series clocks in at 30 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 27 pages of content, though it should be noted that the content is formatted for A5 (6” by 9”). So what do we get?   The samurai has always been a class defined by culture as much as by mechanics and as such, it is only suitable that this pdf begins with a contextualization of the samurai class within the framework of Porphyra….but after this brief piece of fluff, we begin with the first archetype almost immediately. This one would be the Blade of Two Minds, torn between the ideals of two […]

  • While I usually review PFRPG-related products, I’m also a huge fan of CoC and ToC and thus, today I’m going to take a look at one of the strangest cthulhu-related adventure anthologies I’ve ever read,   The Red Eye of Azathoth  This pdf is 108 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page advertisement and 1 page back cover, leaving 103 pages of content, so let’s check this scenarios out!   The anthology of adventures begins with a prologue depicting the rather complex plotlines that span a millennium and that will have your investigators struggling against terrible odds…and die. A couple of times. For one of the basic ideas of the anthology is that […]

  • Hej everybody! You may perhaps not know this, but I’m a  sucker for horror-games. I really love them to death. Whether it’s CoC, ToC or any kind of gothic horror, I’m all in. Thus, it should come as no surprise that I backed a trilogy that depicted horror from a  source that is rather rarely seen in gaming: Very dark, Japanese horror in the style of the old stories, blended with a significant touch of Ravenloft. Jonathan McAnulty and Michael K. Tumey have created an adventure trilogy as an introduction to these dark lands. Now, with a kickstarter for the whole setting, I figured it would be prudent to introduce as many people as possible to these neat modules. Thus, […]
