What is it about open ended adventures that really makes them work well when they’re done right?

Or is it the fact that there are multiple paths and the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: Beyond the Ghostlight Reef by Christina Stiles from Kobold Press

Supplement Review: Journeys to the West by Christina Stiles and Open Design, Part I

Just to let you know ahead of time, I was a supporter of the Journeys to the West project through Kickstarter so I’ve had an interest in this collection of locations and adventures in Midgard since I first heard about it.

Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly Issue #22, Summer 2012

What is it about those darn kobolds? Every three months they produce a magazine covering several different systems: Pathfinder, 4e, the AGE System, and now for the first time with Kobold Quarterly #22, Castles & Crusades.

Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly – Winter 2012 Issue 20

What is it with the kobolds and Kobold Quarterly magazine? Do they have a stash hidden somewhere in the wilderness where they can just pull out a few choice morsels of game lore, ideas, interviews, and reviews and just throw them together for we outsiders to enjoy? All I know is that Kobold Quarterly 20 . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly – Winter 2012 Issue 20

Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly: Fall 2011 Issue 19

What is the biggest a kobold can actually grow to? The d20srd.org site says kobolds are 2-2.5 feet tall, weighing 35-45 pounds. And the Pathfinder SRD online doesn’t actually mention their explicit size though it does introduce the idea of different colors of kobolds. That said, you could always apply the Giant template to a . . . → Read More: Magazine Review: Kobold Quarterly: Fall 2011 Issue 19

Supplement Review: Alleys of Zobeck by Ben McFarland and Open Design

Weren’t Zobeck’s city streets full enough already? I mean… when I reviewed Streets of Zobeck back in July, I mentioned that it was dark and dangerous.
