Elements of Evil: Gnolls
by Tyler M.
Publisher: 5Realms Publishing
Date Added: 08/21/2017 22:32:01
Elements of Evil: Gnolls I wrote a review/overview on my [website](http://www.zargo.games/gnoll-week-day-1-unearthing-
-arcana-special/) and Patreon, Zargo Games, but I'll share it here too! Brief Summary: Create a playable gnoll race based off wolves instead of hyenas. Overview: This product has a surprisingly high production value for such a short product. There’s an illustration, a cover (with the same illustration), a title page, a legal page, and a back cover. However, the core of the product feels lacking. The flavor and illustration makes the gnolls feel more like werewolves stuck in the wolf form rather than a monstrous humanoid. The names section is rather small and has pretty on the nose names such as “Snarl” and “Flesh-Carver.” Past that, the traits are a mess. The race is ridiculously underpowered by the fact that all three of the mental stats are decreased by two but only two of the physical stats are increased by two, and one of them by one. The rest of the features feel a little ridiculou...

Swords & Wizardry Light - Character Cards

Swords & Wizardry Light - Character Cards These new Character Cards add style and convenience to the Swords & Wizardry Light roleplaying game. Designed for immediate use and insertion into your S&WL sessions, these cards take all of the work out of character generation (which is under normal circumstances simple to begin with) and emphasize the on-the-go quick-play nature of the game. Great for Demos, conventions, and any other first time play experiences. Very handy for the last-minute add-on player, henchman, or NPC. Everything you need to start play is on the cards. The nice touch is that they are full-color and beautiful to boot! Highly recommended for anyone planning to play or run Swords & Wizardry Light....

Tome of Horrors Light, Volume I

Publisher: Frog God Games
Date Added: 08/21/2017 21:44:21
Tome of Horrors Light, Volume I Another PWYW product (read: free) from Frog God Games supporting Swords & Wizardry Light! Here is another batch of 'horrors' to throw at your S&WL adventurers, featuring a nice array of challege types and difficulties. From beasts, to human combatants, to mythical creatures like the medusa -- Tome of Horrors Light will add new threats and terrors to your games. Compact and beautifully laid out, it works well both as a digital file at the gaming table or as a printed document. The next piece of the expanding S&WL catalogue, ToHL is a must for every GM running this streamined and fast-paced OSR roleplaying game. I can't recommend it enough!...

Assault on Raven's Ruin (Basic)
by Sean B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/21/2017 21:23:49
Assault on Raven's Ruin (Basic) I ordered the Print on Demand hard copy and was mostly pleased. The quality is decent and the adventure itself is a fun starter mission for new groups, or novice players. My one gripe with the PoD version is that the map has been reduced in size, and merely added to the booklet as additional pages, rather than a full-size map for play.... I would think with the print on demand setup it wouldn't be difficult to produce the proper sized map with the module.

The Enlightened Man So far I've only browsed through the material in this module, but it looks excellent - just what I was looking for to drop some complexity into the FATE game I'm running. Good stuff!

Coriolis The Third Horizon - Quickstart

Coriolis The Third Horizon - Quickstart I finally got a chance to sit down and look at this. At first glance I thought, "Oh no another D6 game system based off the old storyteller system. But then I actually went deeper into the rules. This system is very close to one I had been developing on my own in my earlier twenties, and that got me rather excited again. This definetly looks like a very refreshing game setting, and I hope in the near future I can actually buy the PDF manual for this. Over all Modiphius has been coming out with a ton of Roleplaying games, that are games I would "Really want to try and play" . You folks are I think keep the RPG gaming genre alive and kicking. So thanks for the hard work. ...

Symbaroum - The Mark of the Beast
by Matt B.
Publisher: Jarnringen
Date Added: 08/21/2017 15:26:42
Symbaroum - The Mark of the Beast A complete and well written urban adventure. The premise is engaging and the flow and balance of problem solving to action is good. PCs will also get to meet some key NPCs (maybe) and experience a bit of the Thistle Hold landscape. I was a bit confused about a couple of the particulars about why and how the antagonist was doing what she was doing, but it didn't phase my players, so no big whoop.

Swords & Wizardry Light Did you or your kid get more fun out of the empty boxes than the gifts that came inside? Are you consdered multi-classed because you work two jobs to keep up with the 100-lb sea anchor that is most rpg systems? Take comfort beleaguered ones, the cavalry has arrived. Swords and Wizardry Lightl is everything you need for a complete fantasy rpg experience for levels 1-3. Everything, everything, EVERYTHING is on two two-sided notebook sized pages: the four iconic classes with starting kits and spells, weapons, treasure, appropriate foes, and combat rules. Everything works on the roll of a d6 or a d20, so no more sounding like a junk wagon toting all those dice to the table. Giving SWL as a gift and you don't want to seem cheap? Get the Character cards (beautiful artwork with a player's guide on one side and a character sheet on the other) and the Tome of Horrors Light Volume 1 for whatever you paid for SWL. Want more on-the-fly fantasy goodness? SW Continual Light, going a...

The Castle
by Jan S.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 08/21/2017 06:53:55
The Castle The Castle is an excellent adventure. Each stage/step is made of several steps and you can make the adventure you want: more action, less action, more horror/less horror, choose the ending you want – the tools are there, just pick and go. It’s not perfect – there are minor typos (e.g. see page XX), and there could be more consequences/opportunities for each scene and reminders about the scene overall importance: For example there is a library, which is the key location for most of the approaches. The text could remind us that, for example „if you decided that you want to lift the curse, the library offers this and that pieces of information.” But these are minor things, and an experienced GM can manage easily. It took us 5 hours to complete and I rushed the ending a bit, since the group decided to fight the Villain. Using all the scenes it can be easily stretched to probably 8 hours, and with bare bones (4 scenes shoud do it) – down to 3 or 4. As such, it is much, much better as a...

ASA: Alice in Wonderland #4 PF

Publisher: Playground Adventures
Date Added: 08/21/2017 05:11:29
ASA: Alice in Wonderland #4 PF An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth part of the adventure series for the youngest of players (I’d recommend the series for ages 4 – 6, 8 at most) clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/SRD, ½ page advertisement, leaving us with 11.5 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This adventure is designed for 2nd level characters and was moved up in my review-queue at the request of my patreons as a prioritized review. … .. . The White Rabbit is up to his usual shenanigans – while being late, he panics and inadvertently locks the Duchess out of her own castle! It’ll be up to the players to provide the proper means for the distressed Duchess – who promptly and hilariously collapses into a chair while mumbling about rewards. The PCs have to open the door on the front and may encounter their first trap here – as a minor aside, damage type is not specified for triggering the trap. This, however, remains a minor glitch and the exploration is pretty cool: ...

Play Your Character Like A Fucking Boss
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Kort'thalis Publishing
Date Added: 08/21/2017 05:10:12
Play Your Character Like A Fucking Boss An Endzeitgeist.com review This advice book clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page Kort’thalis glyph inside of front cover, leaving us with 13 pages of content, two of which are taken up by nice pieces of b/w-artwork, so let’s take a look! It’s interesting, really – while there are plenty of GM books around, there are almost no player advice books. Sure, more math-intense systems have a lot of optimization guides, but what many folks forget, is that a good game is as much reliant on having great players as on having a great GM. Anyone who has played in a a Living Campaign will probably nod knowingly right then and there – I know that it took some seriously horrendous experiences gaming with strangers to appreciate my main campaign and faithful cadre of players…and similarly, playing with strangers did highlight the strengths and weaknesses of my own players…but that as an aside. This pdf, thus, is focused on player advice and as such can be considered to be a co...

5E Mini-Dungeon #034: Mysteries of the Endless Maze

Publisher: AAW Games
Date Added: 08/21/2017 05:07:12
5E Mini-Dungeon #034: Mysteries of the Endless Maze An Endzeitgeist.com review 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 one does not come with VTT-maps or player-friendly iterations, which is a bit of a bummer. 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. ... .. . Still here? All right! This is a ready to use portal-maze, but one with a twist: Upon entering one of the segments, you roll 1d4; on a 1, the segment's challenge is a riddle; #2 is a trap (...

DDAL05-16 Parnast Under Siege (5e)

Date Added: 08/20/2017 23:55:49
DDAL05-16 Parnast Under Siege (5e) Vert fun but also dificult module, and has rules in it for running the module with two tables. I highly recomend this adventure for anyone who wants to know what it is like to dm or play in an epic, since this is as close as you will get without going to one. Running all of the tier 1 modules and finishing with this one feels like a better start to the storm kings thunder hard cover than playing through the great upheaval, it takes longer but builds up a better role play and gives the players a better feel for the urgency of the situation at hand. ...

DDAL05-03 Uninvited Guests (5e) Have DMed and played both sides of the story, both take the players through a great story very enjoyable, and fun to go from this strait into giant diplomacy. By far the second best module of the season with giant deplomacy being the first.
