  • The Reaping Stone This massive mega-adventure clocks in at 206 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 1 page advertisement and 2/3 of a page SRD, which leaves one with a massive 201 1/3 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion.   All right, still here? Set in the metropolis of Maerh Varza (which comes detailed in a short appendix and with a full statblock), the PCs begin this module in a tavern of all places – and are dumped right into the action, as deadly adversaries enter the tavern and drop a vial – one, […]

  • Bullet Points: 3 Templates for Stone Golems This Bullet Point is 4 pages long, 1page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 2 pages of content for 3 templates, so let’s take a look, shall we?   The first template herein would be the Diamond-template, which increases CR by +2, add DR and HP. Being made of unrefined diamond, appraising and identifying the golem is difficult. Attacks by Diamond golems are rather deadly and every attack that deals less than 15 points of damage may actually result in the weapon being subjected to a sunder-attempt. OUCH – especially thanks due to the DR, which means that 30 points of damage are required to avoid this ability. Rather nasty!   […]

  • Scions of Stone: Six Original Gargoyle PC Races This massive supplement is 98 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with a massive 92 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we!   Bernie McCormick, the author, kciks off this massive supplement with some information on what made him design this supplement, as well as a word of warning on the power of these gargoyles – via ARG-rules, they clock in at about 20 points. But sinc, personally, I consider the ARG to be broken as all hell, I’ll refrain from taking them apart by these rules and instead show you what these gargoyles can do – and […]

I encourage potential players to skip to the conclusion.   Still here? All right! This adventures starts off rather simple: Yuri Statel, sage of Rybalka, needs  some special kind of mushroom (perhaps for his […]
