  • No Dignity in Death: The Three Brides (OSR) This collection of 3 loosely-linked modules clocks in at 38 pages, front and back cover are contained in a separate pdf and so are the 4 pages of maps and the 2-page handout (more on that below). It should be noted that the page-size assumed would be a5 (6” by 9”) and that you can, provided you have good eyesight, jam 4 pages on one A4-page when printing this out.   All right, so, the 3 modules herein are set in the capital letter ODD town of Pembrooktonshire; while the companion-book depicting a gazillion of weird and strange characters is not required to run these, it does add to the general experience…but […]

  • Faerie Tales from Unlit Shores 2.5 – Three Nights in Portsmouth (DCC) This module/expansion clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Well, what is this pdf? In short, it could be considered to be the anthology/director’s cut-version additional content for the second part of Daniel J. Bishop’s AMAZING “Faerie Tales from Unlit Shores”-series, The Portsmouth Mermaid. As such, there will be minor SPOILERS for that one in here as well, but mostly of a structural nature.   Anyways, this being an adventure-review, the following obviously contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. … .. . All right, only judges around? […]
