  • We Be Leshys This adventure clocks in at 28 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This review was moved up in my reviewing-queue as a non-prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   So, first things first: This module works best as a one-shot, courtesy of its unique premise: If the similarity in the name wasn’t ample clue: In this scenario, the PCs play Leshys, namely the leshys known as Brindlewild’s Protectors – these special leshys all come with CR 5 sample statblocks and represent the pregens for the module. The pdf provides some notes for customization, should the like be […]

  • We Be Dragons This adventure clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 21 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   If the appropriation of Paizo’s slogan for Goblin-PC adventures was no clear indicator – this module is set apart by one very crucial factor: The PCs are all dragons! While it is possible to use appropriate regular dragons, the module’s base premise works imho best if you use the plentiful pregens included. 9 of these are provided, all clocking in at CR 4 and representing, as a whole, a pretty diverse spectrum. The dragons range from arcane dragon to blood dragon, caustic dragon, corruptor dragon, harmonic dragon, […]

  • 5E Mini-Dungeon: We All Start Somewhere (5e) This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Unlike most 5e Mini-Dungeons, this does not come with player or VTT-friendly maps. 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. … .. […]

  • Alterkine Figure Flats: The Ones We Were These figure flats come as two .ppt-files – one two-fold, one three-fold, with both of them sporting two pages you can print out. The figure flats are full-color and represent both the characters (including cultist leader Daniel Sutter) as well as the more horrific creatures featured in the module – and generally, I really like figure flats and the somewhat whacky creatures of the module, like the owlbear-style bear/frog-hybrid Brog.   That being said, I’m a bit of a snob; I can’t help it. I just can’t really get behind CGI-artwork like the one employed herein. There is nothing wrong with the material provided. There truly isn’t…however, the module’s weakest component was its […]

  • Today I’m here to examine a product by Wordcasting Entertainment,   Advanced Class and NPC     This pdf is 50 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 46 pages of content – not a bad price-per-page-ratio, so let’s check this out!   We kick off this offering by Wordcasting Entertainment without an introduction, without a foreword, but rather get right into the first NPC-class, the Battle Commander. This class gets d10, 4+Int skills, full BAB (which lacks the “+” in the table), proficiency with all simple and martial weapons and shields (including tower shields) and a good fort-save. The class is rather interesting in that, from […]
