  • Star Log.EM: InsaneCorp’s Sinisterly Superb Cybernetics (SFRPG) This installment of the Star Log.EM series clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   *sound of static, white noise, a screech as if a thousand blades scarping on metal as space and time tear*   Check, check. Is this guy on? Huh, didn’t think that’d actually work. Guess he wasn’t kidding with all his stupid review-robot jokes. Where was I?   Oh yes! Greetings Hoomanz of the backwater planet Earth! This is none other than Doctor Malifaord Hudson Insano speaking, president of the  glorious conglomerate InsaneCorp Industries, situated in the Xa-Osoro […]

  • The Sinister Sutures of the Sempstress (DCC) The second Halloween adventure for DCC clocks in at 22 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2/3 of a page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 18 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look! It should be noted that this adventure is laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5), which means you can fit up to 4 pages on a sheet of paper when printing this.   This review was requested and sponsored by one of my patreons.   Unlike the previous Halloween-module “They Served Brandolyn Red”, this one begins at the lofty level of 6. It is strongly suggested to have a well-rounded group of characters […]

  • Advanced Adventures: The Pod-Caverns of the Sinister Shroom (OSR) The first of the Advanced Adventures-modules clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front- and back cover, 1 page editorial ½ a page SRD, leaving us with 14.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look.   This review was requested and provided as a prioritized review by one of my patreons.   All right, quick history lessons – this is, to my knowledge at least, may well be the first ever commercially available OSRIC-module ever, which is a pretty huge deal that renders this a sort of almost historical relic of sorts for fans of OSR-style gaming. Now, the trade-dress evoked by the module obviously hearkens back to feelings of […]

  • Looking for a deadly Lich’s laboratory?   The Sinister Secrets of Silvermote   This adventure is 67 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving a whopping 64 pages of content! Not bad at all, so let’s check out the dread laboratory of Temerlyth, the Undying! This being an adventure review, the following contains SPOILERS, thus I encourage potential players to skip ahead to the conclusion. Let’s get ready for some horror-show indeed, for after an encounter with some ogres and drow in the wilderness, even the entrance of the dungeon is not entirely simple, necessitating the solving of a riddle, which is always nice, at least for me – riddles are often painfully underrepresented […]
