Places of Power: Raveneye Sanatorium

Places of Power: Raveneye Sanatorium An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Places of Power-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, we all have presumably played an adventure in a Sanatorium, right? At least those of us who enjoy dark fantasy and roleplaying games will know the tropes at this point. There's a reason for that, and it is mainly due to reality and how we see sanatoriums and the treatment methods employed there - while, from our modern perspective, e.g. lobotomies may look barbaric, not so long ago, they were considered to be a fantastic, extremely humane form of treatment. The advances in medicine have colored our view of these facilities and that bleeds, of course, into the games we play. This modern notion of medicine has influenced and shaped the respective representations of sanatoriums in the fantasy games we play - which btw. is clos...

CLASSifieds: The Wind-Warrior

CLASSifieds: The Wind-Warrior An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the CLASSifieds-series clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 9 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The wind-warrior class presented herein gains d10 HD, 4 + Int skills per level, full BAB-progression, good Ref- and Will-saves as well as proficiency with simple weapons, one-handed martial weapons, light armor as well as katana, naginata and wakizashi. Starting at 1st level, the wind-warrior may use Dexterity instead of Strength modifier with one-handed weapons capable of dealing slashing damage (oddly locking out the naginata -making me think it may have been a leftover from a previous iteration) with the Way of the leaf ability. Starting at 3rd level, the ability is upgraded to provide Dex to damage instead of Str-mod as well. Starting at 5th level, using way of the leaf provides a visible wind-effect that nets +1 to atk and damage while using Way...

5E Mini-Dungeon #033: The Legacy of Theft

Verlag: AAW Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/17/2017 03:56:53
5E Mini-Dungeon #033: The Legacy of Theft 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! When recent construction of an inn revealed the presence of a presumably abandoned complex, the owners of the inn to be constructed, Edwyn and Jackson Cairn decided t...

DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e)
von Tosh L.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/17/2017 00:45:45
DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e) It's a decent starting adventure that has gothic elements as well as tie-ins to the actual storyline. My only criticism is that if this is someone's introduction to D&D they might be confused with the backstory that comes from a module like this, since this adventure kinda assumes that you have a general knowledge of what the Gur are. Also, it doesn't do a great job of showing how the Gur aren't thieves and the players are supposed to not kill them or something like that, since it seems fairly obvious that they did the wrong thing. Overall, it's good it just needs to be worked on a bit more....

Cloak & Dagger (2e) This is the second product I buy and the first one was really high quality so I didn't think to look at the sample before I bought this one. It was a bad surprise when I opened the PDF to see that it was barely readable. So I advise anyone who wants to buy this to look at the sample first to see if the quality is good enough for you.

Demihuman Deities (2e) I have no problems with the content of this supplement, but have been very disappointed with the quality of the scan. I have the other similar PDF supplements (F&A and P&P) and "Faiths & Avatars" is far higher quality image than either this one or Powers and Pantheons. Twice the size, but much more usable and readable.

Carnival (2e) Lots of good fluff but found the reading a bit rough. It is almost entirely written as if a person is talking to you. While in parts gives you a good idea of how that NPC will intereact with the PCs, unless you read the whole thing does not give you the highlights. That said it has very interesting concepts and good adventure ideas, just the chapter format is not that great.

Exilium

Hinzugefügt am: 08/16/2017 11:28:59
Exilium Exilium is a great game with a very cool concept backing it. What makes this game stand out, and what I appreciate about it, is the singular perspective and cool concepts Exilium manages to cram in so few pages. Greg Saunders has a gift I admire and wish I had. Most D6 games follow a pack. They simply want to graft the system onto their favorite homebrew D&D or sci-fi (Star Wars) game and never dive any deeper into what the system should offer or what the game world content can highlight. Greg Saunders managed to do both in a package that’s very well presented. well done...

Hybrid Class: Vessel
von Thilo G. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Purple Duck Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/16/2017 06:42:15
Hybrid Class: Vessel An Endzeitgeist.com review This Hybrid Class clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 23 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So, what is the vessel? In short, it is a hybrid class of the medium and the oracle, but that is not really enough to adequately describe it. Chassis-wise, the class gets ¾ BAB-progression, good Will-saves, d8 HD, proficiency with simple weapons, light and medium armor and 4 + Int skills per level. Vessels start drawing spells from both medium and cleric spell-lists, starting at 4th level, casting them as psychic spells which are governed by Charisma as spellcasting attribute. As you will have noted, they are cast spontaneously and the class does not treat cleric spells of higher than 4th level as belonging to the list and is beholden to alignment restrictions regarding cleric spells. This also btw. Takes into account how orisons are treated as knacks. It should be noted, btw., that the class comes with ...

Pusher Gnomes
von Thilo G. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Knight Owl Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/16/2017 06:40:15
Pusher Gnomes An Endzeitgeist.com review This little pdf clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page back cover, (no SRD), leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So, first things first: Pusher Gnomes, as depicted here, are situated in Knight Owl Games’ Meatlandia-setting (review forthcoming), and the vast majority of the gnomes encountered in the setting belong to this trade, which stirred up no small amount of resentment. As written, they, flavor-wise, sport a significant distaste for meat-magic and the information contains quite a few references to Meatlandian specialties, though it should be noted that the meat (haha!) of the pdf can be used sans access to the big book. The Pusher Gnome class gets – 1 Str and Wis, +2 Dex, infravision 60 ft., magic resistance (all saves versus made are made at +2), 2 in 6 digging skill and a 5 in 6 chance to detect grades/slopes. They gain 1d4 HD and the class progression caps at 12th level and 45...

Dimensionist Hybrid Class

Dimensionist Hybrid Class An Endzeitgeist.com review This hybrid class clocks in at 13 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look! So, what is the dimensionist? Well, it is a hybrid class of kinteicist and witch; chassis-wise, it receives d8 HD, 4 + Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons and light armor and may cast dimensionist spells while in light armor without suffering arcane spell failure. The dimensionist gets spellcasting of up to 6th level and employs Intelligence as governing spellcasting attribute. As an Int-based caster, the dimensionist must prepare her spells in advance and spells are taken from custom spell list the class gets. The class gets ¾ BAB-progression as well as both good Fort- and Will-saves. The class gains a familiar and it is an important aspect of the class, acting similarly to the witch’s familiar, though with an even further increased potency. You see, theme-wi...
