Deadly Gardens: Catchweed
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Rusted Iron Games
Date Added: 02/17/2017 04:14:20
Deadly Gardens: Catchweed An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 a page SRD/editorial, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! We begin this installment of Deadly Gardens with the twigman fetish, which can generate a wooden construct, which then may be directed by the user to attack and otherwise idles. I like this item per se very much, though the interaction of the item with save-prompting spells and effects make it a bit flawed - I assume auto-failure, but I\'m not sure. The pdf also features two terrain types: Razor Shale is EXTREMELY hard to climb and requires similarly high Ref-saves to prevent taking damage while doing so. Worse, it damages ropes... Shifting dunes move targets on them, necessitating Acrobatics-checks to remain standing...neat. The titular creature herein would be the pretty neatly-drawn CR 10 catchweed, which is a Large plant that not only may grapple foes, it may also e...

Trail of the Apprentice: The Oracle's Test (Pathfinder)
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 02/17/2017 04:12:07
Trail of the Apprentice: The Oracle's Test (Pathfinder) An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth installment of the Trail of the Apprentice-series, designed to teach RPGs to both players and GMs alike, clocks in at 52 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 43 pages of content. The pdf also comes with an art and map folio that clocks in at 27 pages (if you take front cover and editorial away), presenting the art as hand-outs as well as versions of the maps with and without grids, player-friendly and key-less - kudos for that! Seriously, as far as custom map-options goes, this should be industry standard. Now, as always, the Trail of the Apprentice is designed to be relatively family-friendly and should result in no issues for kids ages 8+, unless you have particularly sensitive kids. This is very much kid-friendly, though, as always, I\'d strongly suggest parents using this saga to reward n...

Starjammer: Core Rules

Starjammer: Core Rules I love the content, the races are well balanced and lend to the Science Fiction feel. The insectoid race has multiple options to keep almost any player happy. 5 stars and well deserved.

Apotheosis Drive X - Fate-Powered Mecha RPG - HD Mix
by Steven S.
Publisher: Machine Age Productions
Date Added: 02/17/2017 01:11:49
Apotheosis Drive X - Fate-Powered Mecha RPG - HD Mix The book is a mess, the style is sloppy and despite this being called the HD mix comes across as really choppy and low res but that is merely the beginning of its problems. The biggest and most unforgivable to me is asking this price and yet delivering so little in the way of content, they hint that they\'ll give it but then don\'t follow through, the factions despite so much writing, mostly form in-universe characters giving their own narrations, couldn\'t be less well described in a coherent fashion, the page on the mechs they say they\'ll give some idea of how it feels to pilot them, but then gives absolutely none not even a description of the various control interfaces, why they needed to turn the first few gens pilots into super soldier cyborgs for instance, thats completely left out despite that obviously being a big thing. I understand the need to give an open world for DMs to do their own thing but theres such a thing as taking it to far, imagine a forgotten realms boom that na...

(ME505d) - Theo's Focus
by Anthony G.
Publisher: Mithgarthr Entertainment
Date Added: 02/16/2017 21:33:14
(ME505d) - Theo's Focus Not bad. I like the simplicity, but it feels a bit like a random dungeon and seems to lack a climax or twist. Still, it\'s good raw material to add spice to.

Vehicle Handbook
by Christopher R.
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 02/16/2017 20:01:24
Vehicle Handbook Lots of great options. From bicycles to massive anti-grav battleships, if you can invision it you can build it. The system is easier to follow then the one for spaceships (*High Guard*), but then again a minivan isn\'t as complicated as a starship. My main complaint is the example vehicles don\'t go tell you how many spaces are being used for crew/passengers. The book suggests 1–5 (or more) per person, but the exact number isn\'t given for the examples.

Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of core book
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 02/16/2017 12:11:20
Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of core book This massive and beautiful work brings the world of Conan the Barbarian back to our role-playing tables with all the impact that Conan himself has... richly illustrated and replete with detail to help you bring the Hyborian World to life. The foreword by lead developer Jason Durall tells us why: it\'s been written by people who really know and love the Conan stories and have been inspired by them in their role-playing for a long time before this project (or even previous Conan RPGs existed). Durall feels a kinship with Robert E. Howard, having grown up in a similar small town and escaped into fantasy, whilst I feel a kinship with Durall, having discovered Conan as a youngster and swept him into my role-playing, working this wonderful setting up for use with whatever ruleset was to hand at the time. Interspersed with quotes from original Conan stories, the Introduction continues this theme of a desire to create a role-playing game that is true to the original stories, working hand-in...

Cultures of Celmae: Briranor
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wayward Rogues Publishing
Date Added: 02/16/2017 03:33:53
Cultures of Celmae: Briranor An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Cultures of Celmae-series clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 19 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! The briranor, prior to the Shattering, were an isolated people, dwelling on the Emerald Isle (fully mapped in full color!) - a tribal people fighting as much amongst themselves as with the orcs. When the Shattering tore Celmae asunder, they faced titanic beasts and had to retreat, in unity, to the newly unearthed cities of ruins opened to the sky by the now floating landmasses. Occupying the remains of this erstwhile civilization, they tried to rebuild...but soon had to come to grips with not being alone: The majestic behir and the briranor, after a tentative first contact, entered into an alliance that persists to this day, an alliance that allowed them to reclaim their lands. Initially reluctant to mingle with the strange new race they found in th...

Monster Classes: Giants and Reptiles

Publisher: Dreamscarred Press
Date Added: 02/16/2017 03:31:33
Monster Classes: Giants and Reptiles An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Dreamscarred Press\' Monster Classes-series clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, a page containing only a bit of glossary, leaving us with ~10 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! So, what is this? In one sentence: It\'s Dreamscarred press providing the Savage Species type of \"Play monsters\"-rules for the context of the Pathfinder roleplaying game. The pdf does acknowledge that this series (or even, individual installments) may not be for everyone - the fact is that most modules are humanocentric and thus, playing monsters can wreck havoc with the assumptions of a given game...more so than players are liable to anyways. Let\'s not kid ourselves here - the guidelines presented in the bestiaries aren\'t really doing a good job; CR = levels doesn\'t work out too well - the concept needs a finer balancing. The series acknowledges exactly this requirement. The solution here would be to empl...

Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of core book

Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 02/16/2017 02:07:02
Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of core book **Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of** set off to become the definitive Conan RPG. While many have tried before them, Modiphius has managed to pull off this claim, coming up with a game that contains what could be best described as the very essence of Conan’s adventures. **Art & Layout** The artwork in the book is phenomenal, and well used, each one conveying the manic vibrance and urgency of Conan’s pulp adventures. While there was still a few instances of a naked lady being sacrificed in an altar, most of the other artwork showed sensibly-dressed women in situations of empowerment and adventure. The layout is crisp and clean, and made reading the book a lot more pleasant. Callout boxes with and tables were used with consistency and an eye towards clarity, and even with the textured printer-unfriendly version, the background didn’t interfere with the ability to clearly read the text. As a PDF product, the entire thing was bookmarked and searchable ...

The Gardener Base Class
by Tyler E.
Publisher: Glenbuckie Publishing
Date Added: 02/15/2017 20:07:59
The Gardener Base Class Built like nothing you\'ve ever seen in the Pathfinder system, the gardner is equal parts half-tank, harasser, and Magic: The Gather counter deck, giving the whole class a design philosophy and play style that truly is all its own. Starting from a base build similar to that theorhetically tankier rogue, the Gardener gains access to newly designed plant powers, supernatural abilities that allow them to transform harmless seeds into deadly plant based weapons that function like nothing seen in the game. Difficult to describe in depth without explaining nearly the whole book, what makes each of these powers; from giant smashing vines and spiny cactus limbs to health choking nettles so interesting is not just their ability to cause trouble for your enemies but the fact that ALL OF THESE POWERS CAN BE ACTIVATED AS IMMEDIATE ACTIONS in response to enemy actions. Now, on the surface that might not sound that devastating compared to the host of options floating around in Pathfinder but when co...
