The Petal Hack
by Randy G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/14/2016 06:12:53

The best Hack supplement I have read. Excellent introduction to the classic Empire of the Petal Throne setting. The classes, magic system and other rules are elegant and clearly laid out. Highly recommended.

The Petal Hack

The Hack system is generally good, especially for those who lack the time for a fully involved RPG campaign. I was pleased to see "Petal Hack", as "Empire of the Petal Throne" is a sentimental favorite for those who remember gaming in the 70's.

This may be the clearest introduction to the world of Tekumel Ever. There is certainly more you can know, but this will give you a good start and the Black Hack system is filled with Old School goodness.

Heroic Age of Tekumel Quickstart (Beta)

not quite as I remember the original, but it was 40 or so years ago. I can't remember it bring as sexually permissive, though the game system does seem improved.

Enchanter Class for Labyrinth Lord and OSR
by Derek H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/06/2015 10:19:11

There are three ways that a shaman class (one who can speak to spirits) can be constructed- the spirits are innate to all things, spirits are fairly common and wander about or having spirit familiars on hand at all times. The Enchanter is a combination of the latter two. Initially the enchanter will have to hope that a spirit is nearby and at 5th level one can be bound, though that isn't automatic or easy. There are no unique spells for the class, or actually the spirit world, but that is easy to rectify with all the OSR and AD&D/BD&D resources out there. The rules for finding out what spirits are around, if any, and what element and level they are are fairly simple and easy to use or modify as needed.

I am giving it a 4 because it isn't the best thing since sliced bread, but it is a well written and can be easily modified to fit many different styles of caster and play. Thumbs up.

Enchanter Class for Labyrinth Lord and OSR

A little gem; clear, concise and well-written with examples, open to interpretation to adapt it to your GM style but still with enough of a framework to grasp how the class works. A great variant on the standard Wizard.

Enchanter Class for Labyrinth Lord and OSR Games – Review by Kurt R

This is the first product by Brett Slocum and his newly created Welsh Bard Games and is offered as PWYW with a suggested price of $1.00; with additional commentary by James Spahn and Ian Borchardt

The first 2 pages are the cover and OGL and pages 3 through 6 are the content. The illustrations are great and very classical. The Enchanter class is a Spirit talker of sorts and I can see it being useful in many types of games, it is well thought out and includes example play in the last page and a half.

The special Class ability is Sense and Command Spirits and this is well written and easy to understand. The reaction roll determines the Spirit's willingness to help the Enchanter by casting spells for them. The Experience table is the same progression as a LL Magic-User and I think an Enchanter would be about on par with a MU of the same level.

One thing that stands out is the optional rules for quickly determining the Spirits element and level, using a standard playing card deck or a Tarot deck. Each suit is one of the elements and the face cards help determine the level of the Spirit.

I rate this 5 stars and recommend it to you without reservations.
