  • Vathak Terrors: Cured of Ursatur This little bestiary clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with a brief introduction of the context of Ina’Oth and the deadly Plague of Shadows that ravages these lands…and the results of the methods to combat the plagues that sweep Ursatur.   The children of vinari healer Anna Schafer still haunt the places, constituting the first critter within, Anna’s Forgotten, a CR 13 undead. Born from the desperate attempts to find a cure from experimentation on children, the canonization of the good Dr as a Saint of […]

  • Vathak Terrors: Denizens of the Silver Tower This little bestiary clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The supplement begins with a brief, one-page run-down of the Silver Tower noted in the title, sketching the environment and noting some sample denizens that can be found within, taking creatures of up to Bestiary 6 into account. While no terrain features or concrete details are provided, this at least provides a nice contextualization for the creatures to come.   The first of these would be the CR 7 Riven, a plant that had me shudder and flash back […]

  • Vathak Terrors: Horrors of Halsburg This supplement for Shadows over Vathak clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC (which looks a bit sad with only 4 lines – probably would have fitted on the editorial-page), 1 page of SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let’s dive in!   After a brief introduction to the matter at hand, namely monsters: We begin with the CR 1 Poxivum, which has a rather cool description: The tiny plant looks like a grotesque cross between a big onion and a human heart, scurrying around on artery-like appendages. The powerful plant seeks to attack itself to a victim, being surprisingly powerful […]

  • Terrors of Obsidian Apocalypse: Haunts This supplement clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, 2 pages form-fillable character-sheets, 1 page mini-monster-sheets, leaving us with 4 pages of haunts, so let’s take a look!   This pdf provides a collection of haunts, obviously, one ranging from CR 1 to CR 10. The respective haunts follow a nice formatting, with CL, XP-values, CRs etc. being provided alongside a short flavor-text and, obviously, triggers, hp and all required pieces of information.   Now haunts constitute one of my favorite innovations that came out of Pathfinder, as a franchise, not as a system – I’ll always fondly remember entering Foxglove manor for the first time, with downright brilliant spooks […]
