100 Dungeons Deluxe
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Lee's Lists
Date Added: 08/16/2017 05:17:35
100 Dungeons Deluxe 100 Dungeons Delux offers 100 dungeon seeds with some rough illustrations accompanying them. These dungeons are not thoroughly fleshed out and serve as points of inspiration for the GM to work from. When I purchased the product I assumed that given it's price ($19.15AUD at the time of writing) that it would be containing complete and ready to use dungeons or at the very least a list of key locations within each of these places. For instance in the example of The Beastly Skeleton one is informed that this skeleton is a pig or boar with scales that 'probably ate humans', that it was capable of regenrating and was killed by a small band of hunters with exotic weapons and powerful combat spells. We are then told that the skeleton is worshipped by a tribe of mutants who tranform into scaled monsters by eating bits of the dead monster and feed captives to the rot around the skeleton. This is all the information in this book and the other dungeons are treated with similar levels of d...

DDAL05-17 Hartkiller's Horn (5e)

DDAL05-17 Hartkiller's Horn (5e) That Talos remhoraz was a great fight! I have a tough time everytime I play it. The rest of the mod is good. The roleplay with Good King Hartwick is really nice, and I love retelling the story of the end fight with the Jarl. The boss fight for the characters has room for improvement though, as its really not as cool as the fight happening with the Jarl. I understand why it is that way story-wise, but it felt too much like the last fight in Sword of Selfaril. Also, that's the 3rd time I've seen the Dagger of Venom as the magic item, please stop lol....

DDEX2-10 Cloaks and Shadows (5e) A great story right from the start! A whodunnit and a race to clear your names. I love the locations that can be visited, especially the guy with the flying machine! I always enjoy running this adventure, because the roleplay in it is fantastic. Simply a well made module that my players always have fun with.

DDAL04-13 The Horseman (5e)
by Tosh L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2017 23:02:29
DDAL04-13 The Horseman (5e) I thought this was a challenging, dark, and enjoyable module that emphasized the insanity that Barovia can drive its beings. The fights weren't too much of a challenge, except for, of course... the boss fight. This boss is rivaled only by the "Dark Lord" (both of them) herself. His mind-flayer, blue-dragon, mongrelfolk, monk combination is truly terrifying that could easily mean one to two deaths for the party. Nevertheless, it's one that is both awesome and frightening to run. I would not advise this adventure for anyone who has qualms about deadly adventures (I actually wouldn't recommend any of season 4 for said people). My only issue with this is that at certain parts the editing could use a little work, and the fight with the elves can be a bit clunky with so many combatants....

DDAL04-12 The Raven (5e)
by Tosh L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2017 22:52:26
DDAL04-12 The Raven (5e) A module that is **very** confused on what it wants to focus on. Does it want to focus on the gothic element of railroady (something I'll get to in a bit) wolf fights? A set of combats that... admittedly work ok? Or the strange roleplaying moments with the ravens (which I actually enjoyed, it just seemed kind of wierdly tacked on as a tie-in to ravens)? Whichever one you choose you still have the major problem of railroading. There's a general rule that goes with modules which is that you'll agree to the missions and whatnot, but it seems really strange that the adventurers are trying to get a person who is known as a fanatical terrorist (Ixusaxa Terrorsong) away from some Orcs... why? What's wrong with the orcs having her? I get that we have to rescue Sybil and all, but why Terrorsong? This part annoys me to no end. For this is the third time that we've seen her and we haven't really learned anything other than: "She's a smart elf who is/was a fanatic." If she's showing up so much, sh...

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Tosh L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/15/2017 22:30:06
DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) An ok puzzle module, that suffered severely from lack of proofreading and understanding how D&D mechanics work. It has ok ideas and a... kinda forgettable story to be honest with you, but it just falls flat from the amount of errors that would have been easily noticable on an additional read-through.

DDAL05-11 Forgotten Traditions (5e) Another great mod by Travis. This hits all the right keys with a pretty awesome set of exchangeable encounters, creative traps, and interesting atmosphere. Then there is the boss fight. This is seriously deadly, and proves that sometimes you just have to run! Amazing job

DDAL05-05 A Dish Best Served Cold (5e) A fun adventure which provides descision making from the PC's to fight, how to travel etc. Every step of the way the party's decisions effect how events play out.

DDEX2-14 The Sword of Selfaril (5e) A well put together adventure. It provided a equal amount of role play and combat. I would have like, as a DM, a little more fleshing out of the faction interactions. ie where, who, and motives.

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

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 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)

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...
