DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e)
by Aaron B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2017 20:10:36
DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e) Purchased for Roll20. Excellent art. Due to the high resolution of the maps however, some of the larger maps load very slowly. The designers did an excellent job of placing a lot of detail into the DM layer so that players won't see anything unless they're supposed to. Tokens/monsters are already pre-placed onto the map, saving a LOT of prep time. It's pretty much just plug and play.

Writing With Style: An Editor's Advice for RPG Writers
by Stephane G.
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 08/15/2017 19:17:52
Writing With Style: An Editor's Advice for RPG Writers I find this book a more complete guide to writing for those of you who wish to submit your work to a publisher or even if you want to self-publish. At 44 pages, it cover many of the elements needed for the RPG style. He gives us examples and suggestions on phrase stuctures, run-on sentences, word use, participles, player-text versus GM-text, etc. If you're submitting your work, he even recommends asking the publisher if they have a ''Style Guide''. Something I didn't even know existed, but then, I'm not a professional writer nor did I study journalism. Ray does a very good job of showing us the little thing need to write with style. Venger's book mentions this only briefly, were as Ray goes in depth. I believe that both of these books would well together, but that if you can only chose one, then go with ''Writing with Style''. For only 2$ more you get more bang for your buck....

E-Z DUNGEONS: Deluxe Edition

E-Z DUNGEONS: Deluxe Edition The printing was clear, I liked the textures, and the components are easy to build. A lot of paper models suggest that they be cut out with a hobby knife. I just used a pair of sissors and things look great.

Adventure Writing Like A Fucking Boss This book in my opinion is good if you want some tips on how to set up a basic structure for your adventure, whether you wan to submit it to a publisher or just for yourself, but may not be worth the price.

Primeval Thule 5e Campaign Setting Just got my printed copy in today, and I'm really impressed. You really can't tell that it's POD, unless you had the published version right next to it (I do). Looks great! We'll see how it holds up over time, but I'm pleased enough to be eager to purchase more POD products! Thanks!

DDEX3-12 Hillsfar Reclaimed (5e)
by Kyle M.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2017 16:32:01
DDEX3-12 Hillsfar Reclaimed (5e) This is the first part of a two-parter, and it's definitely a fun change of pace! I will try to keep this relatively spoiler-free, but players should probably just know that **we really enjoyed this module and it's not all fighting.** ## What I liked Unlike most AL modules, this primarily will test the characters (and players) ability to handle social situations as well as explore their environment to carry out infiltration and espionage assignments. It does this pretty well for the most part, including some pretty memorable scene setting. The fact that the adventure includes - and in fact needs - no maps whatsoever helps with this, because we can run it in "theater of the mind". In almost all situations, the adventure has a fairly open design, encouraging the DM to reward the players' creativity and come up with their own solutions. This will keep **everyone** on their toes as the adventure proceeds, but that also means everyone works together to create and tell a cohesive, i...

The Book of the Righteous (5E)
by Paul S.
Publisher: Green Ronin
Date Added: 08/15/2017 14:48:54
The Book of the Righteous (5E) I was a big fan of The Book of the Righteous for 3rd Edition D&D (and this from someone who didn't like 3rd ed much) and so I bought the pdf version when Green Ronin re-released it for the 5th Edition. All that was in the original is still there, the rich and detailed mythology, the structures of the churches who worship the various gods, a whole new cosmology (different from and - in my opinion - better than the D&D default) and advice on how to integrate it all into your own campaign. Aaron Loeb's original material remains as outstandingly good as it was. There is also a decent amount of "crunch"; a few new backgrounds, new cleric domains, new archetypes for classes and no less than six added paladin oaths. There is a new druid circle but it appears to be missing info - all it has is a list of spells. The small number of creatures and magic items from the original are also still there, updated. What the authors haven't done so well is adapt the original material for the new editi...

Random Encounters: Pack 1

Random Encounters: Pack 1 These minis (and the Heroes Pack 1) were a huge hit with my players. The BBEGs are scaled perfectly and truly give an imposing presence on the battle map - even if they are cute and colorful!

Cat's Meow: A One Page Adventure for 13th Age
by DANIEL S.
Publisher: High Level Games
Date Added: 08/15/2017 11:25:49
Cat's Meow: A One Page Adventure for 13th Age Let's get this out the way: the "adventure" is not really an adventure, it is a simplistic encounter of "you found this thing, kill it". With that said, the creature itself is nice, and I would totally use it in my campaign. The race presented (Chatoulim) is actually the best part of this PDF: if I was the author, I'd scrap the adventure, add a few more stat blocks and sell this as a new race/monster for a 5 star product. Nevertheless, it is worth the dollar in my opinion! :)

Wilderness Encounters
by Robert N.
Publisher: Assassin Games
Date Added: 08/15/2017 08:49:14
Wilderness Encounters Excellent supplement to add flavor to your campaign's wilderness treks. Some entries are combat encounters, some are interesting opportunities for skill checks, and some are flavor descriptions that add narrative interest to otherwise uneventful overland travel.

Pulpfinder: Fantasy Adventure in the Roaring 20s

Pulpfinder: Fantasy Adventure in the Roaring 20s An Endzeitgeist.com review This book clocks in at 65 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 60 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was sponsored by my patreons and moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review. So, first of all: What is this? In short, it is intended as a toolkit to create Pathfinder campaigns that take place in the roaring 20s, blending fantasy and pulp – a strange combo, but one that very well may work rather well. There are some considerations for such a game – unlike more far-out settings, Pulpfinder per default assumes a human-only version of the game; so no, unlike e.g. Hydra Cooperative’s almost system-neutral (and really impressive) Weird Adventures, you won’t have a full-blown blending of classic fantasy tropes with pulp. The other deviation from the base system would be classes. Unnecessarily complicated metrics for equipment: 1 gp = $2. This will sooner or later really be an...

Mythic Minis 104: Horror Feats S-Z

Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 08/15/2017 04:44:45
Mythic Minis 104: Horror Feats S-Z An Endzeitgeist.com review All right, you know the deal by now, right? 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, 1 page content, so let's go! It should be noted that the SRD page contains a feat, so don't miss that! -Spawnlink: Passively observe what the spawn sees while maintaining your senses. You also don’t need to expend actions to retain the link while it’s established and aren’t blinded while looking through the spawn’s eyes, but take a penalty instead. Use mythic power to gaze through all spawns simultaneously. HECK YES. Undead overwatch. AMAZING. -Spirit Speaker: Gain mythic tier to Diplomacy to get spirits absorbed to reveal intel. Spirits can be used to glean more information and mythic power to compel several answers, save to resist. Also, no longer take Wis-damage/sanity damage for using it. Really cool! -Stubborn Curse: Increases Dc to remove curses; by expending 3 mythic power, you make it persistent and only removable by someone whose tier is e...

Mythic Minis 103: Horror Feats P-S An Endzeitgeist.com review All right, you know the deal by now, right? 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, 1 page content, so let's go! It should be noted that the SRD page contains a feat, so don't miss that! -Protector of the People: Add the mythic simple template to the golem protector and ties it closely to the mission of protecting the people. Upon completion, the cost reduction benefit applies to any construct crafted and you gain a tier-based bonus. Nice boost! -Purging Emesis: Purge of poisons as a standard actions and affect all types of poisons. Also reduces the negative condition incurred by saving down to sickened. Also nets the feat a cooldown, including the requirement for food, via mythic power. Finally, the full-round action use can let you create a cone of slippery area. While the base feat does not note the effects of standard slippery terrain, it would have been nice to see them, but that is just me being ultra-picky and will not influence...

Mummy: The Curse
by Egor M.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 08/15/2017 03:34:09
Mummy: The Curse This is one of the few roleplaying books that left its mark on my soul. While I admit the game has its flaws (the trivial relic-hunting being one of them), it is quite unique in its glorification of personal history, hopes and thoughts of every particular character. Meanwhile, I strongly recommend buing this book with the **Sothis Ascends **and **Guildhalls of the Deathless**. The former is and rich and deep cultural research that tells a lot about several eras in human history (also Sothis Ascends shows how to run chronicles stretching from ancient times to near future with the same characters) and the latter is a detailed portrait of mummy organizations....
