Much like Raging Swan Press’ […]

  • Assassin’s Breach: A Tavern Gambling Game (+Rest at the Wayside Inn) This tavern gambling game/adventure clocks in at 31 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 27 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We’ve all been there – the PCs are at a seedy tavern or casino and want to get information from that NPC over there at the table…so how do they do that? In most cases of published modules, the answer will boil down to “Make a Profession (Gambler)-check!” or a similarly meta replay. But let’s face it – actually gambling would be more fun, right?
