DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e)

DDIA05 Storm King's Thunder: A Great Upheaveal (5e) I Dmed this adventure on fantasy grounds for a group that I normally play in . I thought it was laid out nicely, very informative for a new DM and easy to use. I had the use of maps that were part of the module, which worked out great for those early big battles. There was a lot of areas that the players could RP, which was nice to always having to slash and gash everything they saw. I feel that it was a great transition into a lot of the tier 2 modules.

DDAL05-13 Jarl Rising (5e)
by Mark D.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/15/2017 14:51:25
DDAL05-13 Jarl Rising (5e) On the whole a decent adventure, nice variety in encounters with a few to hold in reserve if you are not short of time (although it is spelled out clearly that running extra encounters gives no extra rewards). My only quibble is the 'Challenge of Blots Notes' section is in part 3, it should have been at the start of part 2, having it in part 3 is illogical. I would run this adventure again, it gives a nice lead in to the final tier 2 adventure Hartkillers Horn (DDAL05-17)

DDAL05-11 Forgotten Traditions (5e)
by Mark D.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 07/15/2017 14:42:08
DDAL05-11 Forgotten Traditions (5e) Absolutely excellent adventure! Plenty of options as there are numerous traps and encounters that can be used as alternatives for the ones in the standard adventure, the traps are particularly good, my party failed to find any of them and suffered greatly! The encounters offer plenty of variation and are well thought out. For the more lore/rp based party I could see this adventure running VERY long as it is chock full of the history of the giants, but it also works well for a more dungeon crawly type of party. The fina lecounter is VERY tough for a party at the lower end of the level scale, I had to back off a bit otherwise they would not have survived. First rate!...

5E Mini-Dungeon #030: The Burning Tree of Coilltean Grove
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: AAW Games
Date Added: 07/15/2017 14:13:05
5E Mini-Dungeon #030: The Burning Tree of Coilltean Grove 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! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion. ... .. . Still here? All right! While travelling inside a large forest, the PCs happen upon a sight most peculiar - Coilltean Grove. While this grove of the dryad Flùràlainn would be a most intrigui...

Jaunt: The Trickle
by alexander m.
Publisher: Roan Studio
Date Added: 07/15/2017 14:00:20
Jaunt: The Trickle The design is wonderful, but the technical layout is crippling -- the whole dungeon is on one "page" but that page has been extended to roughly 6 _times_ the normal length of a portrait page. the PDF is 32 meg per "long page" so my pdf viewer (skim on OSX) is dying under the load of rendering even one page of this. I hoped that I could just print it and be done with digital problems, but since the dungon's page is abnormal ratio, I have the option of either having a natural zoom/ratio picture of the middle 20%, or rescaling it down to fit, resulting in an unreadable strip of art down the middle. #### Note to Author If you reformat it to make it usable, such as either of the following, I'll update my review. (The art deserves 5 stars) 1. pdf with print-friendly page dimensions 2. a jpg per dungeon (if you can't abide nasty page breaks in the art. This would allow client-side rendering to adapt to circumstances in a way the pdf format was designed to _not_ do.) ...

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set
by John B.
Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 07/15/2017 13:33:38
INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Simply put: buy this game. The rules are so simple yet robust that player and GM will wonder why it hasn't been done this way before. The digital version comes with mini's (paper print-outs), online tokens, rules, two unique world primers (Fantasy and Sci-Fi), small monster manual, and the now legendary Game Master section. This section alone is worth the price of admission. The system is regularly updated by the creator (updates to digital version free to those who purchased through DTRPG) and the Google+ community is simply incredible to find inspiration, help and groups to play with. This is a Core RULES Set; it does not include the Vol 1, 2 or 3 card decks just as those do not contain rule sets. You do not require the card Volumes to play this game (my group uses crafted sets). That being said, all card Volumes are highly recommended as well for table-top and online play as the art is fantastic and help in story creation. Is it perfect? Probably not. But I will say ...

Mind over Matter: Psion and Soulknife (PFRPG)
by Skjalg K.
Publisher: d20pfsrd.com
Date Added: 07/15/2017 11:56:34
Mind over Matter: Psion and Soulknife (PFRPG) This is a terrible product. The Psion archetype that opens the book does not gain any new features until 8th level. The new features are bland and mostly pointless, which is true for all the archetypes in this book. Add to that the options that just do not function and the terrible rating and rampant errors and flaws, and this is an utter waste of money even at the low price it is currently sold at.

Mind over Matter: Psychic Warrior, Aegis & Vitalist (PFRPG) This is a terrible product. Most of the archetypes don't even function, and those that do are just bad, trading out important class features for extremely weak options.

Racial Prestige: Kyubi Paragon
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 07/15/2017 11:05:00
Racial Prestige: Kyubi Paragon An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Racial Prestige-series clocks in at 17 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 5 pages of SRD, leaving us with 10 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. If you're somewhat of a Japanophile, you'll certainly appreciate the pdf specifying the origin of the word "kyubi" as a bastardization stemming from "kyuubi no kitsune" - and btw., if you're looking the currently by far best take on the kitsune race as a proper race with options galore, be sure to check out the Dynastic Races Compendium. Anyways, let's move on to the racial paragon class: To qualify, you must be a kitsune with the Kyubi Awakening and Magical Tail feats and either have 5 ranks in a skill, BAB of +5 or higher or the ability to cast 3rd level spells. The class nets 4 + Int skills per level, nets no armor or weapon proficiencies and a 3/4 BAB-progre...

The Complete Vivimancer

Publisher: Necrotic Gnome Productions
Date Added: 07/15/2017 11:03:30
The Complete Vivimancer An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive supplement clocks in at 90 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 85 pages of content. It should be noted that the pages adhere to a 1-column standard and the pdf is formatted for an 6'' by 9'' (A4)-booklet size-standard - if you print this out, you could potentially try to fit multiple pages on one sheet of paper, but I would not recommend that here, due to some elements of the layout. Instead, I'd suggest going for the PoD-softcover. My review is primarily based on the print version of this supplement, which was kindly provided by one of my patreons, with the task of finishing a review of this pdf at my earliest convenience. All right, so the default OSR-rules-set for this supplement would be Labyrinth Lord, though conversion to other rules systems is pretty simple. The vivimancer class gets d4 HD, 9-level spell progression and behaves basically like a magic user specialist. I...

Theorems & Thaumaturgy Revised Edition An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive supplement clocks in at 138 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page blank inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial/ToC, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 131 pages of content, so let's take a look! First things first: This review is mainly based on the softcover, though I do also have the pdf. Both were provided by one of my patreons for the purpose of a review at my leisure. The pdf is formatted for an approximately 6'' by 9'' (A5)-booklet-size and you can, if you choose to print this out, fit up to 4 pages on a single sheet of paper. The default rules-set assumed by this supplement would be Labyrinth Lord, and the material, over 160 new spells codified for three magic-user specialists, is not just simply lobbed at the reader: Instead, we begin this book with a series of considerations for the referee (or labyrinth lord) to add these to the game: The book provides exemplary guidance in that regard, talking about conseq...

Chains 1 Page Background

Publisher: The Knotty-Works
Date Added: 07/15/2017 02:42:00
Chains 1 Page Background I like this release of the Knotty Works a little less than other titles of their product range: the “washed” effect (I don´t know how to call it any other way, as I am not a native speaker) lets you think twice before you use a small font size in your title. But if you are looking for the heavy-metal-hell” approach in your product (and the other offers of The Knotty Works do not fit your bill somehow), this one will be it. Plus, the price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material. ...

Knotty Works Backgrounds Set 7 By now, this one became one of my standard covers for non-mutated post-apocalyptic list/item titles. Before, I found it hard to find a suiting cover, as I looked for something dark but non-flamboyant and matter-of-fact. This set does the trick. The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material.

Black & White 3 Page Background This thorny-looking piece of b/w background forms the background for personal-use character sheets in a dark-fantasy FATE(tm) micro-campaign of mine, and I happy that I have found it. I can also see its use in the printer-friendly versions of dark-fantasy-themed PDF products. The price and license condition is more than fair and a true treat for those who just begin to release their own material.
