Jadepunk: Tales From Kausao City
von Cal E.
Verlag: Reroll Productions
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 18:54:20
Jadepunk: Tales From Kausao City Simply a great book. The setting and style are beautifully brought to life, the writers absolutely deliver a strong concept and immersive, detailed world. They also managed to bring some great new gameplay ideas to the table, while also being accessible, and explaining the FATE system for anyone that has not tried it yet. It is the ultimate resource for those who love steampunk, wuxia, and FATE!

DDAL05-02 The Black Road (5e)
von Dan H.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 12:13:03
DDAL05-02 The Black Road (5e) While cute, this in no way adheres to the expectations of 5th edition. A single encounter followed by a long rest does nothing but roll a bunch of dice. Even a deadly encounter will be no challenge for PCs who have all their resources. Further, as a low level module it establishes expectations among beginning players that they can blow their full load every encounter with no need to conserve resources for later encounters which is 100% contrary to encounter design in 5th edition. The writers and editors need to learn how to structure an Adventuring Day. (The DMG explains this rather extensively)....

Skill Challenge Handbook

Verlag: Rogue Genius Games
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 11:23:30
Skill Challenge Handbook An Endzeitgeist.com review This handbook clocks in at 79 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 3 pages of advertisements, leaving us with 71 pages of content, so let's check this out! This book was moved up in my reviewing-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. It is no secret that I never liked D&D 4th edition. I tried the game and I'm not trying to discredit it or its playstyle - it just wasn't what I considered to be enjoyable and in contrast to PFRPG and 5e, it didn't let me tell the stories I wanted to tell. That is not to say that I think it's a bad system. I get why people like it and it has its definite merits. One such merit outshines, at least for me, pretty much all others, and that would be the concept of the skill challenge. In short, this represents a cooperative, dangerous endeavor undertaken by the group, based mostly on skill use - preventing a raft from going down the water...

LG BK Classics #1: Blue Scales, Red Secrets

LG BK Classics #1: Blue Scales, Red Secrets An Endzeitgeist.com review This module clocks in at 29 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let's take a look! This review was moved up in my review-queue due to me receiving a print copy of the book. So, before we start, a little history: The Living Greyhawk campaign back in 3.X was a campaign I would very much have enjoyed playing in; I always liked Greyhawk's relatively down to earth and classic tone. In particularly the region of the bandit kingdoms would have tickled my fancy, for the Bandit Kingdom summary-book I read really made its shades of gray mentality and pretty gritty feeling sound like something I'd appreciate. Alas, the general public doesn't have a way to play these modules now - they're lost...or rather, they had been lost. You see, this module would be the conversion of one such module to PFRPG, with the serial numbers filed off, if you want. I sincerely hope that we'll get to...

Esoterrorists: The Love of Money

Verlag: Pelgrane Press
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 10:30:57
Esoterrorists: The Love of Money An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive adventure for The Esoterrorists clocks in at 111 pages, 107 if you take away editorial, etc. This review is based on the print copy of the module. I do not have access to the electronic version. Okay, so the first thing you have to know about this massive adventure would be that it is pretty hard to integrate into an ongoing campaign, working best if you have a couple of months to set up the proceedings. Otherwise, it may make sense to play this as a one-shot with the supplied pregenerated characters - 6 of these are provided, with detailed motivations and notes for the players to establish their relationship to their team-mates and the NPCs featured herein, in particular a specific one, but more on that later. For the GM's convenience, we actually get a handy table that sums up team-skills by category, providing all you need to know on one page - really comfortable and nice to have! It should also be noted that this module is r...

Echelon Reference Series: Barbarians (3pp+PRD)

Verlag: Echelon Game Design
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 05:49:13
Echelon Reference Series: Barbarians (3pp+PRD) An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive book comes in two versions: One that focuses on PRD-options only, and one that also features 3pp-content. My review is based on the latter option, since it also encompasses the former. For completion's sake, the PRD-only version clocks in at 180 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 4 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, for a total of 171 pages of content. The PRD + 3pp-version clocks in at a MIGHTY 352 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 10 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a massive 337 pages of content, so let's take a look! This massive compilation was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, let us talk a bit about Pathfinder for a second: PFRPG is a damn long-running RPG at this point, proving that stories told matter more than just splatbooks. That being said, PFRPG has an intimidating, impressive array...

Deadly Gardens: Dream Weed

Verlag: Rusted Iron Games
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 05:46:10
Deadly Gardens: Dream Weed An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 2/3 of a page SRD, leaving us with 3 1/3 pages of content, so let's take a look! The pdf, as always, includes a couple of magic items - the first of these would be the low-cost accursed thorns - really cool magical caltrops that temporarily affect the unfortunates with a deforming curse, halving their land speed. The second item would be the silvered apple, which detects nearby lycanthropes and may be eaten to temporarily silver the unarmed and natural attacks of the person consuming it. Nice! Also included in the deal would be 6 natural items, including tatzlwyrm glands that provide a bonus versus paralysis and sleep after consuming it. Shadow mastiff eyes can be flung to the ground (as a thrown weapon or slingstone), shattering and dimming the environment. Gecko glue, gar scale armors, disenchanter trunks that can sometimes recharge items (though it imho sho...

Larius Firetongue's School of Sorcery An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive toolkit clocks in at 100 pages, 1 page of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page artist contacts (nice), 1 page writer's contacts, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 93 pages of content, though it should be noted that the pdf comes with 3 hex-crawl-y jpgs - one with icons and labels, one with icons sans labels and one that only notes the starting position. Nice! Before you're asking - the ruleset this is based on would be Swords & Wizardry, so if you're familiar with the various OSR-rulesets, you'll know what to expect here in that regard. After a brief introduction by the author and a similarly brief background story, we take a look at the first chapter, which deals with character creation for an all-caster party; the first suggestion we have here would be rolling 2d6 + 6 for an array of characters who are less prone to having devastating Achilles heels. After that, we talk about lifting racial class restrictions - which mak...

Veranthea Codex: Adventurer's Handbook An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive compilation of player-centric material for Veranthea clocks in at 197 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial,1 page ToC, 1 page of SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 190 pages of content, so let's take a look! Okay, so we begin this book with a brief timeline and introduction to the setting of Veranthea and its distinct continents, with detailed (and really nice!) 1-page maps of the continents in question. The pdf explains the continents and leitmotifs in a concise and player-friendly manner, including the information on the Forever Dark, the collector cabal and a basic outline of the tesseract called the Veil - though here at least the main thing going on, metaplot-wise, is clearly spelled out for PCs, which is NOT something I would have wanted in a player-book. Pretty big SPOILERS there... From here on, we revisit the various gods of Veranthea - you have at this moment seen those guys in the camp...

Baba Yaga's Hut I really enjoyed putting this together. The instructions were simple to follow. I really recommend following their lead and getting card stock and a liquid glue stick! Looking forward to making more of their models.

DDAL05-05 A Dish Best Served Cold (5e) Probably my favorite adventure of Season 5. It has it all, fun combat, good opprotunities for roleplay, and some magic shenanigans. I especially love the fact that some of the combat encounters can be resolved through roleplay rather than murderhobo-ing. And, the magic item is fantastic in this. I highly recommend this adventure, both as a DM and a player.

Coriolis - The Third Horizon core book
von Roger L. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Modiphius
Hinzugefügt am: 07/17/2017 03:37:32
Coriolis - The Third Horizon core book http://www.teilzeithelden.de Jahrzehnte lang war die Raumstation Coriolis ein Garant für den Frieden im Dritten Horizont. Doch nun brechen alte Konflikte wieder auf, und neue Gegenspieler erscheinen auf der Bildfläche. Für tatkräftige Abenteurer gibt es also genug zu tun, doch können sie das Dunkel zwischen den Sternen stoppen? Kickstarter-Projekte in der Rollenspielszene gibt es inzwischen wie Kiesel am Baggersee. Manche werden erfolgreich finanziert und verschwinden dann doch im Nirwana oder enttäuschen die Spender. Coriolis gehört zum Glück nicht dazu. Das Projekt aus Schweden ist seit einigen Monaten in Buchform sowie als PDF erhältlich und macht auf dem ersten Blick einen sehr guten Eindruck. Ein schlankes Regelwerk und ein Setting, dass die Kult-Serie Firefly, die Alien-Filme und orientalisches Flair miteinander mischen soll, wirken vielversprechend. Doch hält das Projekt, was es verspricht, oder scheitert es an seinen Ambitionen? In den folgenden Zeilen erfahrt ihr es! Di...

DDEX03-13 Writhing in the Dark (5e) Love this adventure. It has a great macabre horror element to it, which is always nice. The Puzzle is a fun one that anyone can enjoy and solve (it just might give them a headache ;) ). I definitely recommend encouraging the entire group to work on it and definitely use the suggestion of dark thick sleeves for the puzzle pieces, I went with dragonshield card sleeves as they get the job done. The Combat can be a fun challenge, and perhaps punishing, depending on the party build and the DM. The only complaint I can make is that I wish it was longer. I would highly recommend this adventure, whether you're running it or playing through it....

DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e) Good adventure, but it does have some issues. Decent number of traps and puzzles that will require you to put on your thinking cap, and what combat there is can be a real challenge. If the party you're running for isn't equipped for the puzzles though, or your players are more combat interested, it might not be a fun run for everyone or they might find it unduly hard to proceed through the adventure. I definitely suggest running and playing through this though. I'd just advice that the party make sure to be a little more balanced and try to have at least one person with Comprehend Languages prepared....

Rake's Corner Map Wonderful map. Glued the segments to foamcore, then glued and taped the foamcore togeather. Have it in two halves (right at the river) so it stores easily in a closet. Working on buildings to populate the map and eventually wall-segments to enclose the town.
