The Secrets of the Divine: Death, Justice, Healing, & Madness (PFRPG)

The Secrets of the Divine: Death, Justice, Healing, & Madness (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review The latest installment of Rite Publishing's books detailing the unique pantheon of Questhaven along the unique servants of the respective deities clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 21 pages of content, so let's take a look! Now if you're not familiar with the series, here's the basic summary: The deities in Questhaven are peculiar in that their true names are not spoken - instead, they have aliases like "Our Shifting Oracle of Genius" or "Their Mistress of Madness," with the precise epithet depending on your personal relationship with the deity. The deities sport favored weapons, domains and the like and concise write-ups and the pdf also offers unique options for the respective servants of the deity - often to the point, where the archetypes and feats provided radically change how a character serving the deity plays. The first deity covered herein is, concept-wise, a...

Four Horsemen Present: Abstraction Golems Expanded

Four Horsemen Present: Abstraction Golems Expanded An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let's take a look! What is the abstraction golem? Well, the obvious response would be that it is a mythic template that allows you to create golems from the very fabric of concepts like love, war etc. - abstract concepts. First introduced in the massive and exceedingly impressive Construct Companion, the base template is provided herein, but, as the title suggests, the options introduced there are further expanded herein, providing new abstraction templates to craft these conceptually awesome golems from. The first of these would be Fate, which obviously is luck/doom themed and can even grant mythic wish 1/week. More interesting to me, since it pretty much was an imho required addition, was the Hate golem, which not only sports a rage-inducing aura, but also the titan's rage champion ability and associated benefits versus the t...

Call to Arms: Axes & Picks

Call to Arms: Axes & Picks An Endzeitgeist.com review The second installment of the Call to Arms-series clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let's take a look! After a brief paragraph of introductory prose, we are treated to a solid little introduction of the history of both axes and picks and their roles in warfare before we are introduced to the subject matter at hand - here, beginning with properly codified flint weapons, which, while fragile, may ignite flammable material when struck against metal - which is one of the trademark "Why hasn't this been done before?"-moments I love in the series. Similarly, I am pretty sure that more than one GM out there will appreciate the rules for weapons with double heads, allowing for the free action switching of them. If you're like me and contemplate converting Age of Worms, you'll certainly appreciate these rules for the signature weapon of servants of dread Kyuss. Alas, there is a sensible modifica...

Tomb of Nyarlathotep

Tomb of Nyarlathotep Ran this for some experienced players with 1st level characters as a warm up for a new campaign. It was a good 3-4 hours, enjoyable, but unfortunately at the end there was a TPK ! :( Possibly as there were only 3 of them due to a no show on the night but it does have a very deadly final encounter!) 7/10

Basilisk Goggles & Wishing Wells

Date Added: 01/31/2016 19:52:13
Basilisk Goggles & Wishing Wells I’ve always found compendiums of new magic items (or spells) to be among the hardest products to review. That’s because such collections often lack an overarching theme, without which the book is little more than the sum of its parts. When there’s no overall unifying element, it’s difficult to put together exactly what (beyond the technical aspects of the book itself) to comment on. This was not a problem I had with Fat Goblin Games’ Basilisk Goggles & Wishing Wells. This (mega-)collection of magic has all of its magic items occupy a particular theme. Or rather, by having a collection of themes, each of which has several magic items. For example, the book has almost a dozen “alien items” that extraterrestrial items which are fueled by spell energy…but also leak radiation while they work. There are over twenty “focusing items,” which convert spells of a particular level (or above) into a set spell(s), etc. Over three dozen such themes are to be found here, not to mention a section...

Swords of Kos: Necropolis

Swords of Kos: Necropolis Love the art, love the subject matter. Greek mythology has always fascinated me and Michael writes with such authority and detail I almost forgot I was reading a work of fiction. The locations involved are so accurately described, it would be easy for any GM to recreate the setting for their own adventures. Great stuff!

Cards & Quests: An Innovative Fantasy Role-Playing Game

Cards & Quests: An Innovative Fantasy Role-Playing Game Love this product, love the cover art too. I love this concept, I really like the changing 'battlefield' mechanic - highest card and lowest card wins is fun but what to play when second highest wins... lots of fun bluffing. I thought the rules were relatively straightforward but after reading other reviews suggest checking out the Cards and Quests YouTube videos to anyone who wants to see how the game is played. "D-Inifinit plays Cards and Quests" is a whole adventure and very funny it is too. I also have the Cards and Quests Bestiary and recommend you get that too....

Cards & Quests Bestiary 1: Monsters of Kos

Date Added: 01/31/2016 07:47:13
Cards & Quests Bestiary 1: Monsters of Kos Delighted with this product. I have the Cards and Quests rules, which I heartily recommend you check out too. You can never really have enough monsters in your bestiality and this book does a great job of providing you with new and classic encounters of all power levels. I like the chart at the beginning, in particular, which gives you a feel for the challenge rating as is prevalent in other RPGs such as D&D. With Skirmisher you are always guaranteed a quality product at a reasonable price and this is no exception. I can easily see myself using these monsters in other games even when I am not playing Cards and Quests. Excellent purchase, well done all involved....

101 Not So Random Encounters: Urban (PFRPG)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 01/30/2016 23:40:24
101 Not So Random Encounters: Urban (PFRPG) This supplement clocks in at 51 pages, including 47 pages of content. After a brief introduction, we dive into 101 detailed encounters. A few general notes about these encounters: all of them assume you are using the Questhaven Campaign Setting. If you aren’t familiar with it, that’s okay, because this book gives you enough to understand it. In fact, this book could work as an introduction to Questhaven. Also, these encounters are not just brief collections of generic monsters. Rather, each encounter gets about a half a page of fluff describing the creature(s) motivations and place in the world. All the creatures in this book belong to a faction called the Fold of Mother’s Pride, which is a criminal cartel in Questhaven. Strung together, these descriptions can give you ideas for campaign plots even if you don’t use the stat-blocks. The creatures in this book show the full range of the CR gamut. At the low end, we have a pair of CR 1/2 creatures: “Nightblood”, a CR 1/2 ...

101 Urban Spells (PFRPG) DISCLAIMER: I received a free copy of this product in exchange for my review. I received no other form of compensation, nor am I affiliated with Rite Publishing, Steven Russell, or Dave Paul. OTHER DISCLAIMER: At the time of this writing, this product was released less than one year ago. Hence, all opinions expressed in this review, and in particular the Long Term Rating, should be considered TENTATIVE. This supplement clocks in at 50 pages, including 47 pages of content. First comes a one page introduction, which reminds the reader of the Settlement Size Modifier mechanic from Paizo’s Gamemastery Guide (which was itself copied from WotC’s 3.5 DMG). Some of the spells in this book have their effects modified by the size modifier of the settlement they are cast in. There are also a handful of spells which depend on the other settlement modifiers described in the GMG. Next comes the conventional tables of spells by class and level, with their abbreviated descripti...

Pro RPG Audio: Clockwork Factory This track is exactly what it promises to be by the title. You get a steady rythmic sound of gears clicking away. However the fault of this track is that there is no variation or other sounds to break up the monotony of the sound. I'm sure thats the point but I found it on the first couple of listens to be more distracting than interesting or immersive.

Egyptian Tomb (encounter)  - from the RPG & TableTop Audio Experts Wonderful track with a lovely soft woodwind intrument that conveys an exotic tone. Yet intersperced within are groans and hisses making the overall feeling of menace hang in the air. I love this for any tomb raiding set against an Egyptian background. I hope there are more in this theme.

Pro RPG Audio: Celtic Battle I love some good background music for my games. This one is very good. It conveys the feeling of an all out scrum style war. Think the battle scenes of Braveheart or the Vikings TV show. In the distance is a loud blaring horn that maybe is calling for reinforcements. In addition to using this in my games, I also like to add these to my powerpoints when giving lectures in my history courses. This one works for most early eras of warfare.
