Fate Adversary Toolkit
by Johnathan W.
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
Date Added: 08/23/2017 17:16:25
Fate Adversary Toolkit I'm already using this in my adventure design. SO helpful. For anyone who wants to go beyond the vanilla cannon fodder NPCs in the core book, or who wants to create fiendish death traps or deadly lairs this book is for you!

DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e) Great way for the players to jump to level 5! Also a good challenge, and the contents of this module are of really good quality! A must have (and free!!!)

DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e)
by Walter G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/23/2017 17:01:52
DDAL06-02 The Redemption of Kelvan (5e) Puzzle oriented game, depending on the party, it can be boring. I really like this module but the maps are not detailled enough and not available in JPEG.

DDAL06-03 Crypt of the Death Giants (5e) Nice module, everything is great, but the challenge is a bit too hard on most parties. The maps for the GM are not detailled enough and not available in JPEG.

Adventure Shorts, Volume 3 (5e)
by Robert N.
Publisher: R&D Adventures
Date Added: 08/23/2017 16:28:03
Adventure Shorts, Volume 3 (5e) All of the Adventure Shorts volumes from R&D Adventures are well written and conceived. They also come with excellent maps. For this volume, I modified the Carpath Brothers adventure short for my 5E campaign. Adding a little more to what was written provided a solid 3-4 hour side adventure for a smaller group of my players.

Inked Adventures Encounter Lairs 4: Barrow Tomb
by Robert N.
Publisher: Inked Adventures
Date Added: 08/23/2017 16:23:04
Inked Adventures Encounter Lairs 4: Barrow Tomb The Encounter Lairs Sets are very useful to me as a DM as short-adventures or side adventures. This one in particular is awesome! Although small in space, this tomb along with the Leafy Dungeon Entrance Tile made up one short adventure for my 5E group. You can see the write up here: https://thulaen.wordpress.com/.

Werewolf: the Forsaken 2nd Edition
by Adriano C. T.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 08/23/2017 11:54:15
Werewolf: the Forsaken 2nd Edition I have finally received the physical copy of Werewolf the Forsaken 2nd Edition, and now I feel like it's time for me to give my personal review of this book. Honestly? I loved it. I loved it in a way I never even expected I would. This book embraced everything that was done right in the first edition and corrected or improved everything that was wrong or somehow lacking. Now, let me say that I've always been a fan of the World of Darkness Werewolf line. In fact, Werewolf the Apocalypse was the first roleplaying book I ever bought, and one of the first roleplaying games I ever played. I'm saying this to show that I have a great deal of affection towards these games. However, despite always enjoying them, there was always something I never *quite* liked. They were never perfect, in my opinion. Always fun, yes, but never perfect in my opinion. In Werewolf the Apocalypse, it was the tone and the tribes; in the 1st edition of Forsaken, it was again the tribes and some mechanics that were...

The Tekumel Sourcebook - Swords & Glory Vol. 1
by Zygmunt L.
Publisher: M.A.R Barker's World of Tekumel
Date Added: 08/23/2017 09:43:39
The Tekumel Sourcebook - Swords & Glory Vol. 1 I ordered both the hardback print-on-demand and the PDF here in the UK. I'll review the content separately from the presentation. If you want to run a Tekumel campaign, this is the one book you must have. It is a stunning piece of creative work, and more than anything else helps you understand the mystique that has grown up around Tekumel and The Empire of the Petal Throne. The author, Professor M.A.R. Barker, was a teacher of linguistics who travelled extensively in Asia and who has created a completely alien world. It is wonderful. Tekumel is very different to anything in the western fantasy tradition because its influences are South Asia, Southeast Asia and Latin America. The Tekumel Sourcebook describes the 50,000 year history of the planet Tekumel, the civilization, cultures and customs of the Five Empires, and especially Tsolyanu (The Empire of the Petal Throne). How do people dress and speak. How the armies and 20 temples are organized. Then there are all the non...

Revelations in Cold Iron
by Guy H.
Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
Date Added: 08/23/2017 06:15:07
Revelations in Cold Iron Berin Kinsman knocks it out of the park with "Revelation in Cold IRON", the first supplement for his Lighthouse RPG System. Revelation is a dark fantasy thriller, based on the concept that an Illuminst-esque conspiracy is manipulating themselves into absolute power using sorcery to overwrite the objective reality of the world with their own subjective reality. The setting? Our own world, ripped from today's headlines. The Cult of Moloch feeds off the pain and fear caused by the corruption they themselves sow, and only the Resistance can fight back before reality is completely overrwriten ...

Echelon Reference Series: Cleric/Oracle Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) [BUNDLE]

Echelon Reference Series: Cleric/Oracle Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) [BUNDLE] An Endzeitgeist.com review Okay, this massive reference-TOME clocks in at 580 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page blank, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 9 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a staggering 566 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, first things first – this is a reference work and I will rate it as such; it also represents a compilation of spells for the cleric/oracle classes and as such, there are constituent files for the respective spell-levels available, in case this colossal compilation breaks your bank. As you may have gleaned from the title, this book not only contains the PRD spells, but also contains a vast array of 3pp spells from a wide variety of different sources, making this one of the most massive comprehensive spell-sources you’re likely to find anywhere. It should also be noted that the warpriest, employing the cleric spel...

Echelon Reference Series: Clerics (3pp+PRD)

Publisher: Echelon Game Design
Date Added: 08/23/2017 04:14:32
Echelon Reference Series: Clerics (3pp+PRD) An Endzeitgeist.com review This colossal reference-book clocks in at 542 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 9 pages of SRD, 1 page echelon reference dashboard, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a staggering 527 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, first things first – this is a reference work and I will rate it as such. This book focuses on the cleric and my review is based on the iteration that is based on both PRD and 3pp-material from a wide array of different sources. After a brief introduction, we begin with the cleric at a glance, including class skills by attribute, class features and the like; Rite Publishing’s by now venerable Divine Channeler is also listed in such a way. From these base classes, we move on to the archetypes – these are provided alphabetically, noting their respective sources under the header, making it pret...

Four Horsemen Present: Hybrid Class - Possessed

Four Horsemen Present: Hybrid Class - Possessed An Endzeitgeist.com review This hybrid class clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page RSD, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The possessed is a hybrid of medium and witch and gains. Chassis-wise, d8 HD, 4 + Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons, light armor and light shields (interesting differentiation that we don’t see often). Armor heavier than light imposes spell failure chance. The possessed casts arcane spells drawn from the custom spell-list of the class. The class is a full caster, gaining access to all 9 spell levels and casts spells spontaneously, with Charisma as governing spellcasting attribute. The class gets knacks at 1st level and receives ¾ BAB-progression as well as good Will-saves. In a minor complaint, the 20th level entry has a superfluous “+6” in the 20th level entry’s BAB-column. It should be noted that 4th level yields the protected vessel ability, which nets a +2 bonus to Fortitude saves...
