  • 20 Things #3: Wizard’s Tower (system-neutral) This installment of Raging Swan Press’ system-neutral #20-series clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with 20 weird magical effects you can encounter in a wizard’s tower – from beautifully-crafted illusions instead of tapestries to light-weighted objects starting to float, this selection is evocative and fun and, as supplemental material, sundials, impossible slender flagpoles and similar things are evocative, though system-neutrality purists may be annoyed by the reference to detect magic.   A total of 20 odd spell components and pouches […]

  • Places of Power: The Fragrant Tower The first installment of Raging Swan Press’ new Places of Power-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this series with essentially a breakdown of the demographics of the tower, a list of notable NPCs, a marketplace-section and a brief run-down of the respective areas on one page – formatting-wise, this adheres very much to the concise presentation established in other Raging Swan Press-supplements, which is a good thing in my book.   So why is this tower called “fragrant”? Simple: The lore-section the […]

  • Mini-Dungeons: Torment at Torni Tower This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.   Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.   Still here? All right!   Somervel has not been treated kindly by the seasons – its pale forts, somewhat […]

  • B19: Tower of Screaming Sands This module clocks in at 42 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 38 pages of content, so let’s take a look, shall we?   This being an adventure-review, the following review contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion.   All right, still there? As often, the powerful have fallen in this module: Neevoth-Ka, formerly a man of power and reputation, has succumbed to his paranoia. Served by only the spirits of his dead, consumed by his madness – he perished, but unlike Ozymandias, his creation remained – the tower of the screaming sands resurfaces, blown clear from the sands once every […]
