  • Secret Societies of Vathak: The Final Phase This Vathak-supplement clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Final Phase is a cult that sprung form an appropriately nihilistic vision of life as sorrow unending and thus, it should come as no surprise that the already questionable ideology (as much of it as the well-written intro-fluff showcases) has been perverted even further in a world like Vathak – now, the cult is pretty much a decadent accumulation of cultists with a surprising range of influence. More disturbingly, the cult believes that the Great Old Ones hold […]

  • Vathak Grimoires: Echoes of the Final Heartbeat The second Vathak Grimoire clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1/2 a page blank, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Echoes of the Final Heartbeat, firstly, would be a new, dread grimoire – and one that has a more evocative and distinct (and more detailed) fluff-introduction than the first installment of the series, with the grimoire’s grim origin story providing a first and rather interesting hint at the things to come – written in blood to the point of complete self-destruction, this tome indeed is the dread testament of its creator. So, can […]

  • Enhanced Racial Guide: Bhriota This massive racial guide for the Bhriota clocks in at 42 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page advertisement, leaving us with an impressive 36 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The Bhriota are a human ethnicity and as such, I feel I should mention one fact – I’m a huge fan of human “races” – chalk it up to my extensive reading of Sword & Sorcery literature, but I’d rather have different stats for different ethnicities than x pseudo-humanoid races with almost human cultures and outlooks. It’s a matter of taste and thus, I am rather in […]
