Azathoth's Answer
by Fabio B.
Publisher: Pyromancer Publishing
Date Added: 05/28/2018 04:33:33
Azathoth's Answer Elegant little game with a neat layout. Apart from some minor typos and non-translated words, it is really a nice product. I would not mind seeing some additional contents like adventure seeds or a GM guide with some more indications. Only thing that I didn't like was the layout of the character sheet, there is room for improvement! All things considered I recommend it and I am looking forward to play!

Legendary Kineticists II
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 05/28/2018 03:57:19
Legendary Kineticists II An Endzeitgeist.com review The second of Legendary Games‘ expansion books for the kineticist clocks in at 40 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of introductions, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 32 pages of crunch, so let’s take a look! We begin this supplement with a selection of new kineticist archetypes, starting with the bestial kineticist. Here’s the thing. It’s not for your CHARACTER. It’s for your animal companion! A bestial kineticist may select any feat that requires kineticist levels, using HD as kineticist levels, as companion feats. Additionally, if the companion and master know the same kinetic blast of the same element and have Interweave Composite blast both, they may use that feat to interweave a composite blast that requires the element as primary and expanded elements in addition to the normal effects. Kudos: Takes wood properly into account, even if you play prior to Arcane Antholog...

13 Wizard Cantrips and Spells (13th Age Compatible)
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Jon Brazer Enterprises
Date Added: 05/28/2018 03:54:53
13 Wizard Cantrips and Spells (13th Age Compatible) An Endzeitgeist.com review This crunchy little supplement clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page taken up by an old, but nice stock-art piece, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 7 pages of material, so let’s take a look! After an introduction, we begin with the one cantrip herein – that would be Quench, which falls firmly into the utility region and does what it says on the tin, with higher levels allowing for the extinguishing of far away fires or bigger ones nearby. Nice one. The pdf has 2 different utility spell: Arcane Eye. Yes, the beloved I-spy-with-my-little-eye favorite of any wizard-operator finally makes its way to 13th Age, at 3rd level, with upgrades for 5th, 7th and 9th level provided and a concisely defined limit regarding range and speed, as well as AC and PD. The new 5th level utility spell herein would be another classic – Wall of Stone. This one completely blocks out Adventurer tier characters, allowing only champion ti...

DDAL05-12 Bad Business in Parnast (5e) I loved this adventure. The investigative part is not trivial, there are various occasions for Role Play and events happen with a good cadence. Great magic item for Tier1

DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e)
by Lorenzo R.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2018 03:01:03
DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e) This adventure has good parts and some less good. I quite liked the part with Gralm, while the part with the Pandi dog is too ridiculous. Moreover, the diplomatic side with Gralm and the proposal to defeat the boisterous creatures seemed to me to be imposed. The magic items is useless.

DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e)
by BRETT V.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2018 01:48:41
DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e) My players had a lot of fun with this! During and afterwards they provided some feedback which I've provided. One point raised which I could understand was a desire to have d20's on both sides of the competition during the racing rather than using d8's on one side and d20's on the other, or have it as an individual race. I understand that may bring time/complexity challenges. The party we ran with had three players, which made the word puzzle fairly simple: we felt this could be more challenging, however that may strain the 2-hour timeframe with a larger party. We were happy with the storyline flow into the race and afterwards. The storyline link to the next adventure was great I felt, as it happened literally right at the end and so will be quite easy to recall if we don't run the followup for a few weeks or a month. Overall this definitely an enjoyable and memorable evening for both players and DM. The above feedback points really did not detract much from the game. We re...

GURPS Lite (Fourth Edition)
by Richard B.
Publisher: Steve Jackson Games
Date Added: 05/28/2018 00:24:27
GURPS Lite (Fourth Edition) A great free introduction to a great game system. GURPS has gained a reputation as an overly complicated RPG. This 32 page PDF shows how simple it realy is to play. The game is complicated, I won't lie. However, GURPS is no more complicated than Dungeons and Dragons or Shadowrun. GURPS has gained it's reputation because it loads the complexity into starting the game. While D&D allows you to just pick a race and class and learn more as you go GURPS requires an understanding of the system to create a character. GURPS Lite helps this process by reducing the list of abilities you have to chose from to some common ones usefull in most genre. The full rules offer other means of simplifying the character creation process for new players such as using templates. Once play starts the game becomes fairly simple with rules to adapt to many play styles, levels of realism and different genre. If you're tired of having to learn new rules every time you want to play in a different setting or w...

Xao: Island of Iron and Silk (PFSRD)
by Yannick G.
Publisher: LPJ Design
Date Added: 05/27/2018 23:12:11
Xao: Island of Iron and Silk (PFSRD) Xao Island of Iron and Silk is a great product, as a stand alone product, you could even just use it to get inspiration for an asian setting. As part of Exodus, this offers an exotic land to visit as it seems the island of iron and silk don't have any presence for all the other races of Neo Exodus. As mentioned in the pdf, a lot of feats were made during 3.5 and were not updated, so they are mostly just there to serve as inspiration, I could see some of them turned into traits even or some of them already have PF equivalent versions. Since it is mentioned in the NeoExodus campaign setting that sometime foreigners stop there (well people from the regular setting basically), I would have wanted to see how they deal with these foreigners. I can imagine that people talking about strange technology, planes and etc...probably affect their society, a bit. (Maybe related to how people are often found to be mad coming from there) Anyway beside that, it's a great product, just couldn't ...

One Shot World (Beta)
by Jeremy W.
Publisher: Yochai Gal
Date Added: 05/27/2018 22:39:25
One Shot World (Beta) One Shot World is a perfect one-shot or short campaign game. I enjoy the fast pace and narrative arrangement of these games, and OSW seems to deliver a fast paced, rules lite, action heavy game experience. This game would be a great way to introdroduce non-gamers to the hobby, without having to absorb lots of mechanics, they can get right into the action and adventure. I will definitely run this again.

100 Fantasy Castles and Towers The description are very rudimentary, and at 100 of them with no maps, just serves as a list of 100 keep names.

Fantasy Map Making - a step-by-step guide for worldbuilders
by William E.
Publisher: Jesper Schmidt - Fantasy Publishing
Date Added: 05/27/2018 21:31:03
Fantasy Map Making - a step-by-step guide for worldbuilders This book provides a thoughtful and detailed framework of the most important decisions and details required in creating a believable fantasy map. Tectonic plates, weather patterns, and many other geographical considerations that serve as a checklist to building a world that won’t break the viewer’s sense of immersion. Text is a good length for the material covered, but note that it doesn’t intend to outline the entire process of worldbuilding, nor is it a “how-to” for the actual drawing, although it scratches the surface of these broader topics as well. I found it to be well written and useful despite being somewhat limited in scope....

DDAL07-06 Fester and Burn (5e)
by Christopher S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/27/2018 20:57:36
DDAL07-06 Fester and Burn (5e) I've played this twice and DMed it twice. I think everyone had a great time with it, even though one time ended up in an almost TPK. The time we almost TPKed was long and epic to say the least. A common trip up on DMs I've noticed is they read the dragonchess "treasure" section and let it slip that the potions are potions of poison (they read the text like its a textbox for the players). It might be advisable to rewrite it to say there are 2 potions (then in parenthesis say they're poison but appear to be healing). DM advice: That first fight scene can go very different depending on the group and which set of creatures the DM decides to pick. The double flame skulls with double fireballs? Ouch! 7 players and low level could easily wreck a group. Be careful as the DM as to which you pick! Can easily run in less than 2 hours....

DDAL07-04 A Walk in the Park (5e)
by Christopher S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/27/2018 20:51:23
DDAL07-04 A Walk in the Park (5e) Overall I liked the trilogy but thought this was the weakest of the 3. Problem with the module as written: - The kids are above the group and fish out items...then its a chase scene. How did the characters get on the same level as the kids? Players got confused there. - The bag shop went well until they needed to leave. Basically they felt it was their only clue and had no where to go after....and the next clue doesn't show up until they step out the door. - Our friendly grung offers his services because he wants some extra coin...but then ends up paying them with goggles of night? The fights were light so if you've got players just interested in combat this one is probably best to avoid as it was more about an investigation, and traversing through the jungle....

DDEX2-15 Black Heart of Vengeance (5e)
by Christopher S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/27/2018 20:34:44
DDEX2-15 Black Heart of Vengeance (5e) There's a lot going on in this one. It can definitely run long if players hit all the investigation locations. The combat is dispersed through out the investigation and then its a small dungeon at the end full of delightful "traps". I ran this with 6 level 5 characters and the ending was brutal, even when i ran it very weak (techically they were weak). A gorgon with a cone blast doing petrification is murder on level 5's with no way to remove it. The ceiling collapse at the end made things super bad. I'd avoid running this one with low level characters. Also one point - i thought the reuining between Alyed and Cassyt ended oddly. They're fighting and suddenly the embrace? It didn't read right to me....
