  • Forever Young (5e) This brief pdf clocks in at 8 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, there is some merit to playing kids. For one, if your players ARE kids, it may make sense to start playing as kids and then transition to adult adventurers after e.g. a “formative” adventure in youth; similarly, adult adventurers turned into kids can be a nice change of pace. In PFRPG, the massive toolkit “Childhood Adventures” makes for a great way to depict all the eventualities, but at least to my knowledge, no such toolkit exists for 5e…apart from this one.   Now, before we start, it should […]

  • B24: Young Minds This module clocks in at 41 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC,1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 36 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This module, like Colin Stricklin’s previous offerings in the series, takes place in the city of Hordenheim, which is…let’s say, peculiar. If you have missed the excellent “Death & Taxes” and “For Rent, Lease and Conquest“, I’d strongly suggest getting them.  The form a kind of unofficial trilogy and while they all are self-contained, their collective does paint a very interesting picture of the city.   All right, this being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS.

  • Four Horsemen Present: Young Character Options This pdf clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of SRD/editorial, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This pdf was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.   We begin this pdf with several observations regarding how childhood in a quasi-medieval setting would look like – and if you’re a bit of a history buff, you’ll know that even games thus basically focus on teaching skills. In a given fantasy setting, this is twice as important – after all, the world is a dangerous place. The age-range for children of the various core-races receives a […]
