  • 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 […]
