Heroic Fantasy

Heroic Fantasy **What Do You Need to Know About Heroic Fantasy?** Heroic Fantasy (the game) touts itself as a heroic variant of the old school game [The Black Hack](http://dieheart.net/the-black-hack) (TBH). Heroic Fantasy (HF) has nine classes, a race and alignment system, more spells, magic item creation, PvP. And more. *I got a review PDF from the author, Graham Spearing. This is a reading review.* **How does Heroic Fantasy compare to The Black Hack?** TBH offers a rules-lite game experience on 20 pages. It added modern ideas like player-facing rolls to the traditional core. Thus, TBH feels old school without being a straight retro-clone. *(Read more about TBH [here](http://dieheart.net/the-black-hack/).)* Where does HF fit into? I see HF as a set of house rules to TBH, although it's a stand-alone game. It feels almost like the same game, but catered to a different gaming table. HF makes gameplay *even more* heroic. In TBH, low-level characters are sturdier than in OD&D becau...

Psionics Augmented: Psicrystals Expanded

Psionics Augmented: Psicrystals Expanded An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Psionics Augmented-series clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 11 pages f content, so let's take a look! Psicrystals have always been a crucial, distinct feature of the psionics system as far as I'm concerned; the idea of taking a part of one's personality, extracting it and having it float along as an externalized component of a facet of your personality has pretty much been roleplaying gold, as far as I'm concerned. Thus, the introduction of this pdf's content, which talks about the different types of psicrystals, how they're created and the interaction with them, at least to me, represented a tantalizing reading experience. This section also deals explicitly with the details of repairing psicrystals and provides an expansion for Psicrystal Affinity: For the purpose of this feat, all feats that depend on it and all abilities that stem from it, all psion...

Caster Prestige Archetype: Cyphermage

Caster Prestige Archetype: Cyphermage An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Caster Prestige Archetype-series clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, what are these? In case you are not familiar with the concept, a prestige archetype represents a way to not have to take a prestige class; after 3.X's flood, many players and GMs were justifiably tired of the concept...something that is also represented within the design of some PrCs out there. Worse in my opinion, the 3.X flood killed the "prestige"-aspect - the PrCs felt more like kits that could only be taken later, to use a 2nd edition analogue. PFRPG has partially inherited this issue - while there now are significantly more PrCs that emphasize "prestige", we still have ample of concepts that do not have to be represented by a PrC. The massive amount of excellent assassin-fixes out there would be just one example that not all PrCs should be PrCs. Enter this series. Presti...

Fetishistic Arcana

Fetishistic  Arcana An Endzeitgeist.com review This little pdf clocks in at 25 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page blank, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 19 pages of content, though it should be noted that they're formatted for A5 (6'' by 9'')-sized booklets; you can fit 4 of them on one sheet of paper, if you choose to print them out, so let's take a look, shall we? So, on the first page, we actually get a public domain extract from a German ethnographic collection, including a bit of text, which was somewhat hilarious and fitting to me, contextualizing the concept presented within these pages. So, what are fetishes in the context of this pdf? They are items that must be worn or held and their construction requires the arts and a ritual, but not necessarily any staggering costs and any of these fetishes may be used by any spellcaster. A total of 12 such fetishes are included in the pdf, with 4 qualifying as ancient fetishes - more on those later. Well, for once, they represe...

The Goblin's Lair (Basic) I had this box set, along with the rest, when it was first published. It is a great play, but until they fix the problems, the missing adventure "Red Hand Trail" and the chopped Minies its just not worth getting.

100 Baffling Riddles Buyer beware! Lee's List of 100 Baffling Riddles is useless. The riddles are barely in English and make no sense at all. Worst $1 purchase I've ever made. As an alternative, throw your magnetic poetry set at the fridge and the results will be better riddles than this product contains.

Basic Dungeon Tiles : Expansion Set 4

Editeur: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Ajoutée: 03/21/2017 09:04:03
Basic Dungeon Tiles : Expansion Set 4 At 14 pages, 12 are the maps. As with the previous expansion sets; this set adds more room 'shapes' to your dungeon maps. Graphics of the tiles are, as usual, very clear. The floor tiles of each room are very nicely detailed; some are cracked, which adds some age to the rooms. A nice addition to the Basic Dungeon Tiles. At 0.87 Pence/$1.07, it's well worth thte price.

Mythic Monsters #40: North America An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Legendary Games' critically-acclaimed Mythic Monsters-series clocks in at 34 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 23 pages of jam-packed content, so let's take a look! We, surprisingly, begin this pdf with supplemental material that is not only useful for mythic contexts per se - the pdf introduces Scrimshaw items as an item-class, with a respective feat to fashion these (though it oddly does not have the Item Creation descriptor, but that just as a nitpicky aside) - scrimshaw magic items, though, are rather fragile - and this fragility is a central focus of the respective items introduced: E.g. a knife that returns those slain with it as undead servitors, which is balanced via the chance of splintering. The pendant of life sense can help communicating, but ...

Slaves of Tsathoggua An Endzeitgeist.com review This adventure for Crimson Dragon Slayer (the new, d6-based version) clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 a page editorial, leaving us with 14 1/2 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, we begin this pdf with a d20-chart that lets you determine how much of a peasant your character is: While some of these have minor in-game effects (like being a bad gambler), they also include living in a cardboard box, having dirt on even the dirt on you, etc. In short - this can make for a fun negative-bragging at the table: "Dude, my characters is so peasant, he only has *rolls* 3 teeth remaining!" The PCs thus approach the little village of Needham, witnessing a strange funeral procession - the priest seems to have died and is now carted towards a cave...after all, anyone who has entered it will thereafter be brought back there for an eternal vigil. The 8 rumors similarly seem to speak of nasty things hidden there...but the road's been long, the...

Race Options: Svirfneblin An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Race Options-series clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 page SRD, leaving us with 7.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! And now for something completely different - this time around, we take a look at expansion material for one of the arguably most powerful races for PFRPG, the svirfneblin. The racial properties of the race, all its traits etc. have been reproduced herein for your convenience and with SR, constant nondetection and similar tricks, it's not hard to see why the race is often banned. That being said, this review will simply accept the significant power-level of the base-race and look at the new material herein, starting with alternate racial traits. We get a total of 8 of those and they range from an alternate hatred versus aberrations (represented as both atk-bonus granting and AC-improving traits) to applying SR to darkness and darkness-creating effects (interesting!). Losing skills bonuses for We...

DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e)
par Jasmine L.
Editeur: Wizards of the Coast
Date Ajoutée: 03/21/2017 00:37:51
DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e) Spoilers. PDF File: Thumbs down. The PDF has no bookmarks, and is locked so I cannot add my own. Which is lame. Story: Thumbs down. All the story happened in the previous module. This one is just a dungeon crawl with some combat encounters and a puzzle. No roleplaying to speak of, and not much plot. It's not even an interesting dungeon. Encounter design: Thumbs down. The encounters are basically all low-CR enemies that T3 characters will easily steamroll. They're a joke. Way too easy. The hardest encounter is the first one, and while there are a few nasty effects that the enemies there can dish out if you fail your save, they still have to get lucky to even have a shot. After that, everything just gets steamrolled. The only challenge is keeping the NPC alive when the nagas hit him with a series of lightning bolts, or whatever—and that's not exactly very compelling. Player agency: Thumbs down. The plot is entirely on rails. Proceed through each room in sequence. Kill the...
