  • Wayfinder #15 This magazine from fans, for fans, clocks in at 84 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 78 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Well, first, before we do…let me ask you why you’re still reading this instead of downloading this right now. The Wayfinder magazine is FREE, costs absolutely ZILCH and contains evocative, unique material. Even if you don’t play Pathfinder, the excellent artwork tends to make the magazine a great download to just print out and use the art as handouts. So yes, I do believe that you should download all of them right now.   That being said, while I […]

  • Convergent Paths: Clerics of the Cloth This installment of RiP’s Convergent Paths-series is 14 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We kick off the pdf with a simple archetype – unarmored clerics. These guys don’t get the proficiencies with armors or shields, but when not heavily encumbered and unarmed, they get wis-mod to AC and CMD, also applying the bonus when flat-footed and against touch attacks. When under fear-related conditions or confused, these bonuses are negated and they don’t stack with other wis-to-AC-abilities. Generally nice, if a bit weak – especially at medium to high levels, an additional benefit could help. […]

  • Pathways #27 The latest installment of Rite’s free e-zine Pathways is 39 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 12 pages of advertisements and 1 page of SRD, leaving us with 24 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This time around, David Paul’s editorial is about cool products (and free, linked spin-offs!), so I encourage you to check it out! After that, we’re introduced to the Watchman creature template by Steven D. Russell, whose sample CR 19 creature is lavishly illustrated on the cover by Keith Seymore. The template per se is rather cool, blending deadly gazes with vulnerabilities and clocking in at CR +2 – weirdly, though, one table that’s part of the template looks […]

After David Paul’s editorial, in which we get an inside glimpse at the things to come from RiP, we delve into this issue’s template by Steven D. Russell, the despiser creature, which clocks in at CR +2 and boy is this template EVIL: Geared towards planar weirdness, despiser creatures are essentially harbingers of madness and doom – they have a madness-inducing aura (including a new type of madness), can fold space and teleport others offensively into solid objects and also […]

Russell’s creature also complements well this April’s fool’s theme – at CR +3 we get the deadly prankster who can make floors slick, create deadly, obscure booby traps, curse beings to suffer when kicked throw burning hot pie at foes, curse foes with diarrhea (players will HATE creatures that do that to their characters!), curse inappropriate beings to fall in love and finally, make people run into […]

Inhabited by otyughs, kobolds and ghouls the concept is introduced to enterprising DMs to develop and introduce to their dungeons as they see fit. The entry […]
