Legendary Kineticists II

Legendary Kineticists II The elements move in mysterious ways. I'll begin by saying I was provided a review Copy for this. Here we are, Legendary Kineticists 2. Is the ride coming to an end? well... If it truly is, this is leaving with a decent bang, ill tell you that. Although, I think the sentiment from me on this is "not what I was expecting." Lets see what we have here. Bestial Kineticist- Right off the bat, something I didn't expect.This is new animal companion archetype! Your animal companion is infused with a level of kineticist energy and can trade tricks for limited access to wild talents and infusions. It can also enact blasts on it's own, and even pass you it's blast for use- plus if you and it own the same element of blast, it can tag-team blasts with you. I find this archetype pretty interesting. That cats a Dynamo! Metakinetic Savant- Hrm... you can modify and manipulate metakinesis by way of using metamagics at an improved degree, including improving your internal buffer specifically...

Deep Magic: Clockwork

Verlag: Kobold Press
Hinzugefügt am: 03/24/2017 10:58:36
Deep Magic: Clockwork An Endzeitgeist.com review of the revised edition This installment of the Deep Magic-series of 5e-pdfs clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, almost one page of SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 14 1/2 pages of content, so let's take a look! There are few aspects I associate as much with Kobold Press' phenomenal Midgard-setting as clockwork magic. (In fact, only one: Fey...but I digress..) The magic which spread from the by now legendary city of Zobeck across the disk (Midgard's flat) is evocative and interesting...so how has it been translated to 5e? Well, beyond two clockwork-associated gods (surprisingly missing Rava!) after a brief introduction to the history of clockwork magic, we dive right into a new cleric domain, the, surprise, clockwork domain. The domain nets proficiency in clockmaker's tools and heavy armor as well as advantage on attacks versus clockworks and constructs, with the spell-dispersal making sense and good use of the n...

In The Company of Genies (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the amazing "In the Company..."-series, my go-to-series for playable monsters, clocks in at a mighty 31 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page of back cover, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let's take a look! This pdf was moved up in my review-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. We begin with a gorgeous image of a letter, representing the correspondence of Pers Veilborn with Qwilion of Questhaven, contextualizing the pdf within the context of the series in an awesome hint of a frame-narrative. Speaking of which - in case you are not familiar with the series, let it be known that you're in for a treat: The installment thankfully follows in the tradition of the pdfs, as it depicts the introduction to the race herein, at least partially, from the in-character perspective of its members, making the pdf actually nice to read. (So not kidding you - I...

The Cult of the Colour out of Space

The Cult of the Colour out of Space An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 18 pages,1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, this first very positive surprise you'll notice when reading this pdf would be the general set-up that is presented in the history of this cult. At this point, we have all seen iterations of the color in fiction or CoC/ToC-supplements before, but this pdf actually puts the influence of the entity in an interesting sequence of events: You see, the cult's locale is situated within the Bright Mountain Valley, where the local fey population, xenophobic korreds, have been fighting a losing battle versus the approach of civilization. The ever more desperate fey resorted to conjuring forth lethal plant-creatures - though that backfired big time; turns out calling mindslaver molds with imperfect control over them is a really bad idea and so the fey fell to the mold's influence. Worse, t...

Monster Classes: Sand and Spirit An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Dreamscarred Press' Monster Classes-series clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, slightly more than 1 page of glossary, leaving us with ~12 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 employ basicall...

e-seven/ Das Universum des Doktors bietet wortwörtlich unendliche Möglichkeiten. Mit der TARDIS, einer blauen Telefonzelle mit erstaunlich viel Stauraum, steht einem nicht nur das komplette Universum offen, man kann auch jede beliebige Zeit ansteuern. Ein ideales Setting für ein Rollenspielsystem, oder? Seit dem Jahr 1963 und 36 Staffeln reist Doctor Who, der Doktor der gleichnamigen BBC-Fernsehserie jetzt durch das Universum. Ihm als letztem der unsterblichen Timelords steht dabei nicht nur der endlose Raum zur Verfügung. Mit seiner TARDIS kann er auch jeden beliebigen Punkt der Zeitlinie aufsuchen und so in einem Moment an der Seite Winston Churchills London gegen die Deutschen und die Daleks verteidigen, während er im nächsten Augenblick auf Robin Hood im mittelalterlichen England trifft. Oder er rettet einen Weltraumwal davor, Werkzeug eines grausamen Polize...

Super Kids - A Superhero Expansion for Hero Kids

Super Kids - A Superhero Expansion for Hero Kids With my kids reading comics and watching shows like Teen Titans and Powerpuff Girls, I'm glad to see someone finally bringing superheros to the Hero Kids rule system. I'm a bit disappointed in the amount of content included. The setting is very lightly explained in one page. Yes, I can make my own or place it in our city; but most games give one to use or base your own off. I like the sample characters, and my kids have always used the pregen characters for any Hero Kids game, but this is a genre where I think personalized characters could be amazing. I think this could combine very well with the publisher's Character Advancement rules, especially if the kids have a list of possible superpowers to choose from (and possibly level up). :hint: :hint: :nudge: :nudge: This has potential, and could make for some fun adventures (should the publisher want to make some pregen adventures with maps I think there's a market). Sorry if Hero Kids core and Bayhaven have gotten my expectations u...

Player's Guide to the Aegean (BASH Fantasy)

Hinzugefügt am: 03/23/2017 18:09:58
Player's Guide to the Aegean (BASH Fantasy) One of the things I like most about Skirmisher Publishing is the amount of detail they put into a product. In the Player's Guide to the Aegean we are presented with all manner of options for character creation. This product presents a myriad of ideas ranging from the various Human nationalities to their take on elves and dwarves. There are also 'monstrous' creatures like centaurs as character options. I really enjoy this product. It is written with BASH in mind but it can be used as a resource for most any fantasy game. The versatility and detail lend themselves well to translating to other games. Well worth the investment....

DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e)

Hinzugefügt am: 03/23/2017 17:44:55
DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e) There are some real concerns with the mod, but all of those for me can be adjusted by simply using DM's perogative to upgrade, or give tactical advantages to the NPCs. As it is currently designed, most compentent parties are going to death stomp these encounters pretty quickly. The only time folks were even a bit squeemish was during a possible threat by an actually very low HP creature. I agree with another commentor's idea that the boss villain from the past mod should return here to launch a surprise attack. The positives: I liked the extra dimentional setting, and thought the mod was competently arranged. I liked the continued involvement with the University, and would want to see that expanded to additional encounters and story flavor. It was clear to understand the path of the adventure, even when it included a puzzle (I am not a puzzle fan, but my fellow players are, and they loved it.) Extra-Dimentional Room for Improvement: 1) It's a magic school. Offering professora...

Player's Guide to the Aegean (BASH Fantasy) Following Men & Monsters of the Aegean, the folks at Skirmisher Game Development Group now give BASH gamers the Player’s Guide to the Aegean a guide to creating heroes for their Swords of Kos fantasy rpg set in the lands and isles around the ancient Aegean and Mediterranean seas. As with the last BASH product, the book is a mix of modern and old artwork, some black and white and some in colour. We are given beautiful colour maps of the greater Mediterranean area and the Aegean in close-up. The Isle of Kos, the center of their setting is also mapped out in black and white and perfect for handing to every player in a cost effective manner. The Player’s Guide provides a quick history of this world of ancient Greek legend as it would have progressed a few centuries, without the dominance/interference of Rome. In this alternate Grecian history there was a great cataclysm a century earlier that brought many monsters and races back to the world (including a few new ones). This book ...

MPS Complura-Class Passenger Liner

MPS Complura-Class Passenger Liner Travellers travel, and typically book passage on a scheduled route like anybody else. If it's going to be a passenger liner, instead of waving your hand and saying "And you arrive at Praxis IV," they can have adventures enroute. The Complura-Class Passenger Liner is perfect for that scenario. The deckplans are extensive and keyed, no matter where the characters wander. I enjoyed the booklet's Exotic Dish d66 table, which serves up delights like Scrambled maharedi eggs, Living sting beetle maggots, and Thin slices of crispy fried nijima sausage....

The Legacy Weapon - A Dungeon World Artifact and One Shot This is a brilliant solution to two player Dungeon World -- maintains the feeling of playing the full game, while solving for lack of moves if you're down to one player. Above and beyond that, it creates interesting stories in its own right as you describe the history of the weapon itself. Can't wait to show this one off to more people!

Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 03/23/2017 13:16:41
DDAL05-14 Reeducation (5e) There are good things about this mod which make it worth buying, and the things wrong with it could be easily fixed for the most part. As other reviewers have said, the combats are way, way, too easy. This is more of a Tier 2 challenge than a tier 3 fight. I fixed it by simply having a grand melee where ALL of the monsters attacked them in waves until the entire place was empty. That actually made the characters pant a bit, but the boss was still not even as tough as "The Dark Lords" end boss, so that fight was over quickly. Note: This could be a West Coast specific thing, and other players in regions with fewer "optimized" characters might find it a challenge. What I liked: The Story was fun, I enjoy Hsing and interactions with him, the history of the school, and the NPC who ran it are all interesting and well thought out. I think this is a well written mod, but the challenge rating will have to be scaled to your party more enthusiastically than the typical charts for mo...

The Legacy Weapon - A Dungeon World Artifact and One Shot Heard about this on Misdirected Mark and Discern Realities podcasts. A fantastic idea implemented very well, the kind of fiction I like often focuses on some specific character arcs I don't often get to experience in a group dynamic, this allows for that goal wonderfully. The layout looks great, professional, clean, and great implementation of a design goal I am excited about.

RMS Titanic: The Millionaire's Special
von Megan R. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Pelgrane Press
Hinzugefügt am: 03/23/2017 09:20:04
RMS Titanic: The Millionaire's Special OK, we all know that the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank on her maiden voyage... but what else was going on? In this adventure, the Investigators - all travelling aboard and in First Class, no less - meet a gentleman who has a mummy (the Egyptian sort) that he's going to donate to an American museum but is eager to show it off to anyone who is interested. There's a legend that anyone who looks at this particular mummy's face is doomed, but that's all a silly superstition, isn't it? The background for the Keeper explains how the being doomed stuff is not quite as silly as it sounds (with a little bit of help from the Mythos, of course) and provides a spine for the adventure. This begins with a luncheon date with the mummy's owner and ends (naturally) with a certain iceberg... There's some interesting background on the trans-Atlantic trade of the time, and a quite detailed timeline of the Titanic's voyage. Rather neatly, all the encounters and events of the adventure are included in t...
