Hearts and Harlots
by Jonathan S.
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 05/26/2017 11:25:43
Hearts and Harlots So first off, this is pretty much an update of the old Jenny's Guild web supplement from first edition, pertaining to the Vendel League, both authored by Andrew Peregrine. And while it doesn't get into the sordid details of the Jenny's Guild, it does cover quite a bit of the Guild's history and how the Guild operates as a business entity. It certainly does provide a bit more detail on what the life of a Hero with the Jenny Background might have been like, especially depending on which Nation they originated from, such as what particular fashion trend they might have employed during the course of their "work," to say nothing of citing what roles men and children would have within the Guild, with it being made very clear that children are kept as far away from "the work" as humanly possible. It also discusses how the Jenny's Guild represents itself in each Nation, with Vodacce pretty much outlawing it due to the Guild's ties to the Vendal League, to how in Castille the patrons are mor...

Asian Bloodlines
by Vladimir C.
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 05/26/2017 10:47:00
Asian Bloodlines DISCLAIMER: This review is based on a free PDF provided by the author and the publisher, which in no way had an influence on the final score. Asian Bloodlines is a book in Legendary Game’s Far East product line. It is a very focused book, containing only bloodlines for the Sorcerer and Bloodrager classes (and maybe some feats, archetypes and other 3PP classes). As always with LG products, it has amazing art and handy electronic features that really show the production values. What’s inside? 18 pages of pure crunchy content (plus 3 amazing full-art pages) for x bucks, which include: -9 Bloodrager Bloodlines, presented with a nice, fluffy introductory paragraph, followed by bonus feats, bonus spells, and bloodline powers. Imperial Dragon is special, since it borrows heavily from the normal draconic bloodline. It includes specific changes, especially with the Forest Dragon Bloodline. Like “vanilla” draconic, these are very flavorful and will be popular among many tables (who ...

Bad Myrmidon

Publisher: Neoplastic Press

Bad Myrmidon An Endzeitgeist.com review This module clocks in at 52 pages, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page encouragement, leaving us with 48 pages of content. These have been formatted for booklet-size (A5 or, approximately 6'' by 9''), which means you can fit up to 4 pages on a given sheet of paper. I tried it and the text remained legible. The PoD-version sports the hex-map, which in the pdf is inside, on the back, in color. Why encouragement? Well, yes, this module was originally penned for the benefit of Mandy Morbid, with artwork by Gennifer Bone and Wayne Snyder, cartography by Dyson Logos and content mainly by Rafael Chandler, though James Edward Raggi IV did write one of the hexes. It should be noted that this module is intended for adults and sports some non-graphic, but pretty explicit descriptions. Easily offended folks should probably not play this. All right, that out of the way, this module takes place in a weird and fantastic Greece, setting-wise, to be mor...

Monster Menagerie: Troops

Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 05/26/2017 06:07:21
Monster Menagerie: Troops An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Rogue Genius Games' Monster Menagerie-series clocks in at 22 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page introduction, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let's take a look! Okay, let me state something from the get-go: I LOVE the troop subtype. I always hated that mobs of low-level commoners and soldiers sucked so much and the troop subtype keeps these low-level threats viable and simulates the "advantage in numbers"-aspect. As you may have noticed, I tend to enjoy a somewhat gritty and high-challenge playstyle and troops help immensely in that regard - hence, I'd be lying if I said I didn't look forward to this pdf. But what exactly do we get? Well, we start with a full recap of the troop subtype, which is really appreciated and from there, move on to the CR 9 centaur warband...and here, you'll notice that, yes, these troops have a plethora of signature abilities: The centaurs, ...

5E Mini-Dungeon #010: Candelabra Towers
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: AAW Games
Date Added: 05/26/2017 06:05:45
5E Mini-Dungeon #010: Candelabra Towers An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Unlike most 5E Mini-Dungeons, this one does not come with VTT-maps or player-friendly iterations, which is a bit of a bummer. Since this product line's goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great! ...wait...there's...I haven't...Yep! My memory is not betraying me: I have never seen this module before! #10 of PFRPG's mini-dungeons was called "Ghastardly Deeds"! This is a completely new module, designed for 5E! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclus...

This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Oh, and the series now comes in an archive that also contains...*drumroll* a .jpg-version and a .tif-version of the map! Yeah, that's pretty amazing! The dungeon's number-less version of the map doesn't sport any deceptive trap icons or traps - kudos, though the place where the secret doors are can still be gleaned by proximity...but if you conceal that part, it works well. In short: Full, proper VTT-support and help for guys like yours truly that can't draw maps.

The One Ring - Adventurer's Companion
by Ty N.
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 05/25/2017 16:55:30
The One Ring - Adventurer's Companion I was hoping to be able to create characters and have a reference to the rules a player needs to know. The book only gets part way there. I can't properly create a character because there are numerous references back to the The One Ring RPG book and there isn't a good/full section on the rules the player needs to understand to play. On the flip side, the book is really nice looking and the art is beautiful. The content that is provided is easy to understand and a pleasant read. However, if you want a "players guide" you will be dissapointed like me....

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set A lot of effort went onto this game and it shows! A neat system that looks to be fun and simple! The Loot mechanic has a video game rpg feel to it that I like and the effort mechanic is awsome! Most of my gamers are new to RPGs and are recovering boardgamers. I think their gonna love this. Great work!!

W20 The Song of Unmaking
by Anna R.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/25/2017 15:40:51
W20 The Song of Unmaking World of Darkness, and especially Werewolf the Apocalypse novels aren't uncommon. However, one issue they all tend to share is a very varying view on the setting. While minor omissions and mistakes can be forgiven, there are times that the novels' world does not match the Werewolf-setting enough for the reader to understand things in context. This is not the case with Song of Unmaking. The book takes pains to include things important to the Werewolf the Apocalypse setting and make sure they all matter. The Litany is there, Rank among the garou is there, as are challenges. The reader can easily use their knowledge of the setting to understand the gravity of each scene and the politics present in the sept the story is set at. However, if the book was just accurate to the setting, it would at max get three stars from me and mostly because setting accuracy is so rare. But Song of Unmaking is also a good story, using the setting material masterfully to craft the story, rather than be ...

An Echo, Resounding: A Sourcebook for Lordship and War
by Brian K.
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Added: 05/25/2017 13:20:37
An Echo, Resounding: A Sourcebook for Lordship and War This is an amazing resource. A really great way to set up a sandbox campaign in general and even more amazing when combined with the Domain and Faction rules presented. It really strikes a stark contrast with the way domain management is handled in ACKS and other similar systems that inherit their rules from the BECMI. These rules are much more freeform and adaptable, and can implemented to handle different levels of DM preperation.

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e)

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) I love this adventure. I got to play it at a convention in West Virginia and everyone at the table seemed to have a very good time. I got to run it for the first (of what I think will be many) time last night at my weekly FLGS AL night and everyone had a blast...including myself. Players loved the note in the area with the kobolds playing with the giant weasel. I found the boss and inventors (especially the inventors) a lot of fun to play.

Asatania (ASX-3): The Prisoner of Spur Rock (5E)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Fantastic Reality
Date Added: 05/25/2017 07:52:42
Asatania (ASX-3): The Prisoner of Spur Rock (5E) This 'side adventure' is an optional addition to the core adventure The Rebel Prince, you may choose to run it at a particular point - it's all about staging a prison break on behalf of said Prince of someone he reckons will be useful in the fight against the Kan Demon. If you don't want to run this, provision is made for him to turn up anyway (either he got out on his own or never got banged up in the first place, it's not really mentioned). Many parties won't baulk at breaking someone out of gaol anyway, but if yours worries about the ethics of it all, well, here's another of those tough choices this campaign is full of! The individual in question is one Roger Blodgett, a seaman and explorer whose 'crime' was to sail out into the open ocean to find out what was over the horizon, something forbidden by the Farasene Imperium of Tere. The gaol of Spur Rock is located on a tiny spit of land twenty miles off the eastern coast of Tere and pretty far from anywhere. It contains a mix of p...

The Rune of Hope

Date Added: 05/25/2017 04:41:50
The Rune of Hope An Endzeitgeist.com review This module for Rhûne clocks in at 87 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 3 pages short story/advertisement (actually worth reading!), 1 page back cover, leaving us with 80 pages of content - a massive amount! All right, first things first: The mythic sidebar/support from "Into the Pale Tower" is maintained herein; if you've been playing the anti-tech side of the Rhûne factions (via The Ælven Agenda), then...you'll actually have a different intro, gaining specialized Aodain Shrouds. While transition from this angle takes a bit more finesse for the GM, it is very much feasible - though perhaps the coolest way to play this would be to play BOTH previous modules with different characters...that way, if one group gets wiped/defeated, the second can pick up the pieces...and if all fails, you can use the PCs from one of the modules as NPCs...Just my 2 cents, of course! If you've been using the factions from "Into the Pale Tower", they w...
