DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e)

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) I was a bit worried about this adventure as a lot of people have said that it is a lot more difficult than it appears. The party I ran it for was well organized and prepared however, and did not have any trouble getting through it. There APL was weak but they were able to finish the final fight at Average strength. I like that this adventure is more of a test of endurance. The players are forced to keep going, and not given a chance to rest which was a nice change of pace from the usual fight, rest, fight, rest formula....

Deep Magic: Shadow Magic for 5th Edition

Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 07/13/2017 07:56:37
Deep Magic: Shadow Magic for 5th Edition People have always been afraid of the dark, of shadows. Shadow magic, at least in your game world, may be one of the reasons why. Perhaps it's a sinister NPC, or even a player-character with dark edges to his spells... Various ways of tapping into this darkness are provided. The first (and fairly obvious one) is a sorcerous bloodline. Maybe you prefer the idea of a warlock whose pact is with a being from the Plane of Shadows, or maybe it's a rogue who has taken his kind's natural affinity with shadows just a little too far. Each is provided with appropriate class abilities to embue them with a touch of shadow. Next, there's a spell list. Some little gems here, like Dark Dementing - "A dark shadow creeps across the target's mind and leaves a small bit of shadow essence behind, triggering a profound fear of the dark" - how's that for something really nasty to do to your enemies? You can also summon creatures or effects from shadowy realms, hurl shadows around and extinguish lights....

Adventures in Middle-earth - Rhovanion Region Guide I've been a big fan of Cubicle 7's Adventures in Middle-Earth books from the word go, and I think the Rhovanion Region Guide is a great addition. It adds some great details, new npcs, and a wealth of new ideas to those presented in the other books.

Rogue Planet

Rogue Planet I'm only a recent skirm-style game convert and have tried a number of systems looking for that elusive 'something special'. I think I've found it with Rogue Planet. The depth of tactical choice coupled with the amount of character the mechanics afford is absolutely bang-on. Couple that with basically zero book-keeping, low complexity and a huge amount of adaptability and flexibility... I'm just dumbfounded that my mates hadn't discovered this gem before me! The system provides the means of running an entertaining battle with only a handful of miniatures on each side and little or any homework/prep. If you'd like a sense of how the game plays, you might like to check out this [Battle Report](https://southernbermanblog.blogspot.com.au/2017/07/l-
ibuscha-primes-defense-rogue-planet.html) - if you get a sense that we've enjoyed the game, well you're right! I'm looking forward to trialling Brent's other creations in due course....

Shapeshifter (Base Class) An Endzeitgeist.com review This new base class clocks in at 37 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 33 pages of content, so let's take a look! This review was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreon. All right, so another take on the shapeshifter? This'll be interesting! Chassis-wise, the class gets d10 HD, 4 + Int skills per level as well as proficiency with light and medium armor and simple and martial weapons. They get full BAB-progression as well as good Fort-saves. At first level, the class gains a pool of primal energy equal to the class levels. Primal energy can be spent or invested - reallocating these points is a standard action and spent points replenish after 8 hours rest. At 5th level, points may be reallocated as a swift action, at 10th level as an immediate action. Starting at 1st level, the class gains visages, which are prepared - 2 at first level, scaling up to 13 at 20th...

Veranthea Codex: Forever Dark An Endzeitgeist.com review This expansion to the Veranthea campaign setting clocks in at 86 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 3 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 79 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, this massive pdf represents the underdark sourcebook for the world of Veranthea, which, as you undoubtedly have surmised by now, is called "The Forever Dark" in this setting. We begin the survey of these realms with a general list of the peculiarities of the place, including the ever-present darkness, animals having an instinctual fear of the place, shifting mazes, Trekth remnants (represented by a variety of hyperlinked traps and then proceed to move on to a brief list of the respective notable locales (more on that later) and the history of this extensive area. Now, we have before commented on the way in which Veranthea classifies races and people and this notion is expanded with another notion - that of the Horror...

On a lonesome shore of rocky headland, known as the Harpy's Head, there lies the wrecked ruin of an erstwhile powerful ship - and it conceals an alliance most peculiar: You see, a flight of harpies has lured the vessel ashore - but the wreck contains no signs of slaughter, but rather an impromptu war-camp, for the harpies thus forcefully recruited the crew of survivors as soldiers in their desperate fight against Dagon and his strange, deformed minions that rise from the depth in a truly unique coalition. Following the tradition of the series, we do get notes on Lore and the appearance of local folk, as well as the nomenclature employed. The 6 events and rumors further enhance this unique constellation of characters - from harp...

King Arthur Pendragon: Edition 5.2

King Arthur Pendragon: Edition 5.2 I'm old enough to remember v1.0 coming out but I've only just bought it as part of a Bundle of Holding deal. This is astonishingly good. This book is the best "reading" RPG rulebook I've ever encountered. It's enjoyable enough just to read as a reference book on the Romantic Arthurian era. Coupled with the Great Pendragon Campaign, you will be able to experience the richest, most complete feudal RPG ever written. Greg Stafford cannot get enough praise for this acomplishment. If you're wavering, just buy it. You will regret every day you didn't have this once you have read it....

World of Farland Players Guide Great quality and layout. This setting is the best I've found. There's so much information on the website. This condensed version of all the most important information for getting started in Farland is superb. If you're looking for a new setting or have been playing in Farland for years, this guide is exactly what your gane has been missing. Enjoy!

7th Sea: Nations of Théah, Volume 1
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 07/12/2017 19:15:28
7th Sea: Nations of Théah, Volume 1 The material covered in this book could have and should have been included in the core book. The content is far too "thin". While the material attempts to answer overall excluded content questions from the core book, it still feels very incomplete; and that there are two volumes priced separately just feels like a money grab. I want information about playing a role playing game based on a good, solid setting, not a "The Once and Future King" retelling (T.H. White did a better job of telling that story). Overall, this lackluster book feels like a disjointed tall tale instead of role-play material. Headings, subheadings, basic paragraphs and bullet points. That's what you're buying. Rules? Stats? Solid Content? Nope....

Peripheral Code: Writing in the Margins of Ars Magica, Issue 2 (Summer 2017) I'm really impressed by this. I can find a lot to like with the solo rules, and fully intend to use tehm for my game. The White Ship being used in an adventure is a source of genius. Really nice adventure which I'm totally using. Well thought out elite grogs for the Tremere. The second ring. Faeries. The Count of Roses is a neat idea - have to think where to put it. All in all, this is a really professional group of ideas. Really well done.

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) This adventure is made to be part 2 after DDAL 05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber, but can also be played as a standalone. A fun module for adventurers that enjoy using mind over might as they expore this great wizard's tower. As a DM, my first reading of it took a while to comprehend how to guide the party, but the second time went much better. I recommend encouraging your players to keep some quick notes to keep the pace fast and watch their eyes light up when they solve them.

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e) This adventure is made to be part 1 followed by DDAL 05-07 Chelimber's Descent, but can also be played as a standalone. This short adventure puts you into a swampy residence that may have your DM slipping into a country accent as you encounter the local flora, fauna, and some colorful characters. Some printings may have incorrect xp listed, so take a moment to check the last couple of pages of the latest Adventurer League FAQ for the module errata.
