  • Legendary Worlds: Polaris 7 This installment of the Legendary Worlds-series clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 10 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Orbiting a red dwarf star, Polaris 7 is best described as an inhospitable, frozen ball of ice, and one wracked by massive polar vortices; to make things worse, making the equatorial zone the only region habitable by any stretch of the word. The atmosphere is thin and requires supplemental oxygen for most humanoids. Why would anyone be here? Well, the answer […]

Anyone is allowed in. […]

  • Uncertain Worlds (system neutral) This pdf clocks in at 96 pages, 2.5 pages of ToC, leaving us with 93.5 pages of content, laid out in 6’’ by 9’’ (A5). I own both the electronic and print version of this booklet, and my review is based on both of them.   So, what is this? This is basically a collection of fragments, of odds and ends, of what I’d call a GM’s Miscellanea, a toolbox if you will; more detailed and specific than dressing, less detailed than finished supplements, this is a book to open when you’re looking for some inspiration to get your design-engines going. The content was curated from author Patrick Stuart’s blog, but the super low asking price […]

  • Crisis of the World-Eater Delta: Devourer of a Thousand Worlds The second adventure in the Crisis of the World-Eater campaign serial clocks in at 41 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 35 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   The second part of the “Crisis of the World-Eater”-serial begins at 12th level, which means you’ll have to slot in some modules between the Alpha adventure and this one – some adventure-ideas are briefly touched upon before we begin the module proper. The adventure does contain two player-friendly maps – one half a page-sized, one full-page sized. I wished the former got its […]

  • Worlds of Power This supplement of options/sketches of campaign settings for Spheres of Power clocks in at 45 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 41 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin with the chapter “Grimorie”, which depicts the world of Athanasia…no, it does not have anything to do with Samsas Traum’s by now legendary underground song. The world as depicted is a young one – semi-divine beings only known as “strangers” nowadays entered the world and proceeded to guide evolution by virtue of transfiguration via the Alteration sphere. Animals tough this power sought to model themselves somewhat after the strangers, becoming anthropomorphic in many […]

  • Gossamer Worlds: Empyrea Infinite worlds lie on the Grand Stairs – here, we get Empyrea in the second installment of the Gossamer Worlds-series in a 9-page pdf, of which 1 page is the front cover, 1 page the editorial, leaving 7 pages – so what is this place all about?   If you’re a comic-book-nerd, think New Genesis. If that doesn’t ring any bells – think an idealistic, enlightened greco-roman-style planet of essentially superhumans – guided by a benevolent allfather who is only slowly coming to grips with the existence of the Grand Stair, the people of Empyrea essentially live in bliss and, via positive eugenics, can be indeed considered superb beings. If you’re like me, this makes you shudder […]
