  • Shadows of Eldolan (13th Age) This adventure clocks in at 72 pages – since I only have the softcover, I can make no qualified statements on the pdf’s electronic features.   This book was moved up my reviewing queue due to me receiving the softcover of the book for the purposes of a fair, critical review.   First of all, this begins as a kind of gazetteer – the city of Eldolan, depicted with a nice b/w-map, comes fully detailed herein – and it is a n interesting backdrop: Situated near the Archmage’s metropolis of Horizon, but far enough away to be a sovereign entity, we still have, obviously, a magocarcy on our hands – with 3 different wizard schools, […]

  • Mini-Dungeon: Shadows of Madness This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right!   Wizards strive as wizards are wont to do, for knowledge – and much like dwarves […]
