  • Kefitzah Haderech – Incunabulum of the Uncanny Gates and Portals (OSR/almost system neutral) This booklet clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page thank you note, leaving us with 30 pages of content, laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5) – and yes, the pdf does not have the front and back cover as part of the pdf itself.

All right! First of all – this module is intended for use with the Tarina Guidebook – which, more than a year after this module has come out is nowhere to be seen, so I’ll treat this hypothetical book as if it did not exist and ignore any reference to it.   This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS.
