Vacant Ritual Assembly #4
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Red Moon Medicine Show
Date Added: 07/20/2018 04:54:16
Vacant Ritual Assembly #4 An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth installment of the Vacant Ritual Assembly ‘zine clocks in at 24 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of editorial/ToC and notes on recommended files/media, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 20 pages of content, so let’s take a look. It should be noted that the pages are laid out in the standard 6’’ by 9’’ (A5) pamphlet style for many OSR-zines, which means you can fit up to 4 pages on a given sheet of paper – in theory. In practice, printing this one out yielded issues for all printers I used, which may be relevant to your interest. I am not penalizing the pdf for that, though. As before, the default OSR-rules assumed herein are the LotFP (Lamentations of the Flame Princess) rules. The content is suggested for mature audiences. We begin this issue with an article on “The Abstract” – no, not the general notion, but rather an etablissement where dope-fiends, disgraced scholars and other patrons cavort in the hazy twilight. In short, this ...

Crisis of the World Eater Delta: Devourer of a Thousand Worlds (PFRPG)
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: LPJ Design
Date Added: 07/20/2018 04:52:00
Crisis of the World Eater Delta: Devourer of a Thousand Worlds (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review The second adventure in the Crisis of the World-Eater campaign serial clocks in at 41 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 35 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The second part of the “Crisis of the World-Eater”-serial begins at 12th level, which means you’ll have to slot in some modules between the Alpha adventure and this one – some adventure-ideas are briefly touched upon before we begin the module proper. The adventure does contain two player-friendly maps – one half a page-sized, one full-page sized. I wished the former got its own page. Anyhow, the adventure also depicts another faith of the implied setting of the campaign-serial, namely a religion worshiping the 4 central tenets, the physical entities, that drive the complex metaplot of universal struggle – in a way, these are overgods, not akin to how Io worked; whether you like this or not is up to personal ...

Spheres of Might
by Jonathan O.
Publisher: Drop Dead Studios
Date Added: 07/20/2018 02:55:17
Spheres of Might With nine new classes and hundreds of combat talents this book gives a wide range of options and is excellent resource for macking martial charcters fun. Allows warriors to shine on and off the battlefield without needing to be spellcasters, and gives options for evertything ranging from frontline killing machines to alchemists, trapsmiths and devious tricksters. The sheer level of custmisization possible may seem intimidating at first but the book is well laid out and very easy to understand. An emphasis on mobile fighting and standard actions eliminates the full action slog pathfinder warriors often seem to get locked into and creates a more dynamic battlefield in which every action is useful. ...

DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e)
by Jeffrey F.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/19/2018 21:15:51
DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e) Overall Suits of the Mist is a good adventure with an interesting hook into into the Ravenloft series. The five mini adventures are fun, but the portrayal of the Gur in the scenarios is problematic. The Gur fall into many of the negative stereotypes attributed to the Rom people. More thoughts needs to be put into the portrayal of the Gur and the Vistani.

Tall Pines, A Surreal Murder Mystery Game
by Charles E.
Publisher: Self-Critical Hits
Date Added: 07/19/2018 18:42:06
Tall Pines, A Surreal Murder Mystery Game This game allows you to make weird, Twin Peak style mysteries with compelling characters and a system of incorporating symbolism which looks deceptively simple at first. We were surprised by many of the twists and turns, but it all felt like part of a cohesive, if strange, narrative.

Tiny Frontiers: Revised
by William M.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 07/19/2018 15:28:06
Tiny Frontiers: Revised Tiny Frontiers: Revised was unlocked as a stretch goal as part of the Tiny Dungeon 2nd Edition Kickstarter. As a backer of the original Tiny Frontiers, I admit my skepticism of a revision on a game that is good already. However, there were quite a few awesome new things built into the later TinyD6 games, and I didn’t mind getting those built in by default. When I heard there would be a new set of micro settings, I was sold 100%. You can read my full review here: https://liamwrites.com/2018/07/19/rpg-review-tiny-frontiers--

DDEX3-05 Bane of the Tradeways (5e)
by Diana V.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/19/2018 13:54:14
DDEX3-05 Bane of the Tradeways (5e) 4/5. Ran at my FLGS. This adventure is fun for everyone, but a few warnings: the chase is fun, but it is VERY easy to get bogged down in precise details. I ran almost all of it theater of the mind and tried to focus on the story over the exact mechanics. It's also quite difficult to motivate players to do anything if they don't already know what's going on in Hillsfar, and my players personally weren't too motivated by "a shipment" that racists were sending. I almost had to call the module there, as they basically were uninterested in following the rebels. Also, this module comfortably runs in about 2.5 hours, not 2. ...

DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e)
by Diana V.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/19/2018 13:53:27
DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e) Ran at my FLGS, and it's a blast. I have a bit of a soft spot for this module, but it's a wonderful way to get new players interested in D&D, and it's a great three-pillar adventure. There's plenty of RP, and a bit of exploration in the library, and my newer players lit up and shouted in joy when they realized they were going to fight a dragon in D&D after exploring a dungeon. It does require a bit of a mixed party, and some of the plot transitions (Why are adventurers looking for missing books anyway? Why isn't "2 missing librarians" the more important thing to investigate?) are a bit ill-conceived, but for the most part it's a blast. My only word of warning is that it really needs more like 2.5/3 hours to be run comfortably. I had to hand-wave a lot of stuff after my players spent too much time investigating early on. ...

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Diana V.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/19/2018 13:52:47
DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) One of my favorite AL modules, both to play and to DM. My biggest comment is that you should be open to a non-combat solution to it. If someone speaks Primordial, the gargoyles are perfectly willing to help them. And as for the wight at the end, as far as I can tell, he seems far more interested in maintaining the library than anything else. Given that the hobgoblins sent by Bad Fruul are dead, they don't need to actually steal all the books, or fight the librarian. If they have a clever solution, like trading knowledge (suggested by Oghma's shrine upstairs), leaving a party member as collateral, copying the information there, or working to establish a policy for borrowing books from the library, I say let them. It's a far more interesting endgame than just "hack and slash"....

DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e)
by Diana V.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/19/2018 13:51:33
DDAL05-06 Beneath the Fetid Chelimber (5e) Not the best, and it seems more like a slog through the marsh for the sake of a slog through the marsh. The final fight seemed a bit overwhelming for T1, but my players managed. Not the best AL I've seen, but not the worst either. I like this much more as a DM than a player.

Werewolf Gift Compilation

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 07/19/2018 12:38:49
Werewolf Gift Compilation This is an enjoyable title covering all the standard breeds, auspices and tribes. I was particularly impressed with the addition of Croatoan and Bunyip gifts. Of course as a self confessed lover of the Shadowlords I was keen to see what was in store for them, and I was not disappointed!

The Dungeon Alphabet **A** is for Absolutely Awesome Adventure Addition! **B **is for Bad-Ass. **C** is for Creative, Conscise Compendium. **D** is for *Damn; how did I get along without this?* **E** is for Every DM, Judge or Game Master can find something to enhance their RPG sessions here. **F** is for Friggin' order it already. **G** is for Goodman Games does it again. **H** is for Helpful. Which describes this product in a nutshell. **I **is for I won't be listing the rest of the Alphabet. But, I think you get what I'm trying to say here. THE DUNGEON ALPHABET is worth every penny in inspired ideas alone. The fact that it's been updated is even cooler. Thanks Michael Curtis for yet another essential tool for the tabletop. -MARS....
