  • The Wealth System This pdf clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 10 pages of content – for the screen-version, that is. We get a separate version for the printer, which presents all information on 5 pages in a classic layout (as opposed to the tablet-optimized screen version). Kudos for going the extra mile there. The supplement also features an extra pdf, a handy one-page cheat-sheet, but I’ll get back to that later.   This review is based on V.1.1 of the file.   So, the wealth system presented herein would be basically an abstract system to handle the affluence of PCs via an attribute […]

  • How Do I…Fly (revised edition) This installment of the series that explains the more problematic concepts of PFRPG clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 8 pages of content. The printer-friendly version comes with a different layout and manages to cram the relevant information on 4 pages.   All right, flight. So, one of the strengths of PFRPG’s rules, at least in my opinion, would be that the rules are organized in a very clever and sensible manner, at least compared to many other games. I never realized how good the organization actually was until I started designing for other systems as well and noticed […]

  • How do I…Grapple (revised edition) This humble pdf clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Wait – that was the screen-use version. The printer-version manages to jam all required information on 3 pages, sparing you some ink/toner – kudos!   Okay, so in 3.X and PFRPG alike, there is not a single mechanic among the base maneuvers that is as complex as grappling. It is not exactly the most popular part of the rules and most players aren’t that savvy when it comes to standard grappling, much less grappling that accounts […]
