The in-depth descriptions of the people in the town are not only well-done, but also seem easy to work with at the table. Ditto the day-by-day description of events in the town. The use of watches and alcohol makes it all work more smoothly than what I would have run by my own devices.

Luka Rejec's Witchburner is a joy to just flip through, with several beautiful ink-style illustrations to feast your eyes on. The content itself is very usable and helps the GM set the scene for a village that is about to undergo a lot of trouble, some involving witches. It holds an extensive list of personas from the village, as well as an oversightful list of events that carry on from day one. It is written in a style that enables you to use the content in most OSR games, ranging from Lamentations of the Flame Princess to Knave, which again makes it broadly suitable for many game groups. If you like what you see in the Burner Edition, I strongly recommend going for the paid version, which holds even more content!

Nothing in this neat little module is anything short of excellent, however, the things that stand out for me with Witchburner are the scenario and the town. The scenario is a definite twist on gaming conventions. It is a great example of putting players in a painful moral quandary without railroading them in the slightest. As for the town, it is clear that Luka has a very deep dual understanding of people and tragedy; how they can be petty and painful and noble and fearful all at the same time. Witchburner takes all these facets of humanity and crams them together into a little town until they become a powder keg... and then the players arrive, carrying a lit match.

I grabbed this to read. I knew it would be too dark from my regular gaming group, but I wanted to see a good Halloween adventure. Witchburner didn't disappoint. The setting is loaded with detail to enhance the mood, and the ethical quandary at the heart of the adventure is going to be something for adventuring groups to grapple with. I enjoyed the PCs and the 'day at a time' developments in the adventure. Given the right group, I think this would be a blast to run or play. The writer was also careful to give enough detail, while staying away from hard and fast mechanics, that this can be dropped into most FRPG game systems very easily.
