  • The Haunting of Larvik Island (DCC) This module clocks in at 34 pages, 1 pages of front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 30 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   All right, so this is a module for first level characters, and the second adventure that was once intended to be a part of the Princes of Kaimai-storyline, which seems to have been discontinued. Fret not, though, for while the module’s aftermath is intended to provide an angle towards these mystical lands, it is really easy to disjoint the module from this angle.   This module comes with not one, but 6 different hand-outs that basically can be […]

  • Attack of the Frawgs (DCC) This module clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 1 page advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 20 pages of content, laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5), so let’s take a look!   Okay, formally, this is a funnel that is probably closest to what you’d consider to be a linear wilderness trek – you move from wilderness encounter to encounter towards the finale, so if that irks you, then, that’s something to be aware of. This is intended for 8 – 14 level 0 characters, and playtest of the module left between 3 to 4 survivors for parties that explored all locations. […]

  • The Corpse That Love Built (DCC) This module clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, ½ a page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 15.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing queue because a patreon requested the other Halloween modules, and I’m somewhat OCD and needed to get this one done as well.   This module is intended for a 2nd level party, and a well-rounded party is preferable. PCs should be able to carry their weight in combat, but other than that, this has no requirements per se. The pdf presents well-written read-aloud text that oozes atmosphere, and […]

  • They Served Brandolyn Red (DCC) This DCC-module clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page back cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 22 pages of content, laid out for 6‘‘ by 9‘‘ (A5), which means that you can fit up to 4 pages on a given sheet of paper if you need to conserve paper.   This review was requested by one of my patreons, to be undertaken at my convenience, and this being October, I felt that a review of a Halloween adventure would be suitable for the month.   This adventure is designed for 8 – 14 0-level characters and acts as a loosely horror-themed funnel adventure. The pdf recommends at […]
