  • Today, I want to take you back through a bit of my personal history: When the 3.5-days of old were winding down, I was disillusioned with much of the rpg-offerings out there: I didn’t like the encounter-format WotC was starting to promote, didn’t like the direction 4th edition was going, my go-to publisher Necromancer Games was on hiatus and I was not sufficiently active online to know about the “secret” small companies that didn’t show up at my FLGS. Then I bought “Burnt Offerings” – and liked it. I liked the gritty minor bits and pieces and thought “I’ll give this one final try”. I bought “The Skinsaw Murders” and “Hook Mountain Massacre”. And was blown away – here were […]

  • I was always a weird kid. I preferred the villains to the heroes, rooted for Skeletor, not He-Man and always had a fascination with the macabre – Horror-stories in particular. When other kids enjoyed children’s storybooks, I was all in my parent’s ears to explain how exactly a pendulum works. You get the idea. Now what I’m trying to say is that as long something is not too creepy and keeps violence down, children may definitely enjoy creepy modules. Here’s one!   A Frightful Time The latest adventure in AaW’s series for the beginner’s version of Pathfinder and direct sequel to “A Learning Time” is 28 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page […]

  • Hej everybody,   today I’ll take a look at the second release by Xoth Publishing,   Song of the Beast-Gods   This adventure is 28 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 2 pages SRD and 1 page advertisement, leaving 23 pages of content for the latest adventure by Morten Braten, the mastermind behind the modern Sword & Sorcery classic Ancient Kingdoms: Mesopotamia.
