Supplement Review: Adventures in Awesfur – The Dark Totem, Part 1: The Chantry Keep (PFRPG) by Charles T. Marleau and Kristofer Konkel of Rocks Fall Games L.L.C.

If it’s one thing that can get me going as a gamer, it’s a good story. Couple that with a good setting and the opportunity to change the course of events (or even the perception of being able to change the course of events) and you have my attention as a GM and as a . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Adventures in Awesfur – The Dark Totem, Part 1: The Chantry Keep (PFRPG) by Charles T.

Supplement Review: Dungeon Crawl Classics #66.5: Doom of the Savage Kings by Harley Stroh from Goodman Games

The Old School movement and Dungeon Crawl Classics have produced some of my favorite adventures of late. There’s something especially freeing about the wanton destruction of beginning adventurers. And why should they make any apologies for weeding out the would-be’s and the has-beens from the tally of real heroes?

Supplement Review: A0: Crow’s Rest Island from AdventureAWeek.com

Yes, I’m more than a bit behind on reviews, but I keep chugging along. This past weekend I had an opportunity to check out A0: Crow’s Rest island from Adventure A Week (AdventureAWeek.com).

Supplement Review: Midgard Adventures: Beyond the Ghostlight Reef by Christina Stiles from Kobold Press

What is it about open ended adventures that really makes them work well when they’re done right? Is it the fact that the railroad factor seems to fade into the background and offer less of a way to beat players over the head? 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: Haiku of Horror: Autumn Moon Bath House (Kaidan/PFRPG) by Michael K. Tumey from Rite Publishing

Fantasy RPGs (like any number of other genres) have several tropes we all tend to trip over. You know the ideas I’m talking about… Elves don’t like dwarves. Dwarves are drunkards who speak with a Scottish accent. Dragons like hoards. And adventures usually start in taverns with some crazy guy sitting in a dark corner . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Haiku of Horror: Autumn Moon Bath House (Kaidan/PFRPG) by Michael K.

Supplement Review: The Stealer of Children by Peter Spahn from Small Niche Games

Of late, I’ve had the opportunity to review several quality books from small publishers and seen how well a product can be produced even on a budget. That said, occasionally I come across a product with a great concept where something fails to grab my attention and hold it the whole time. The Stealer of . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: The Stealer of Children by Peter Spahn from Small Niche Games

Supplement Review: Shadowlands: The Gates of Tarina Adventure Module by Jaye Sonia and Ben Cacchione from BlackStar Studios

Have you noticed how memorable movies and television programs use catchphrases to sometimes drive home key points? For example, in Star Wars, C-3PO says “I have a bad feeling about this” and we hear the phrase come up in a variety of ways over all six films. Or in The Princess Bride, Vizzini uses the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Shadowlands: The Gates of Tarina Adventure Module by Jaye Sonia and Ben Cacchione from BlackStar Studios

Supplement Review: Shadowlands: Secrets of the Tainted Adventure Arc (PFRPG) by John Maki from BlackStar Studios

Back in the fall of 2011, I backed a Kickstarter project from BlackStar Studios to see what the world of Shadowlands was all about (they have a new Kickstarter going as well – check out the links at the bottom for more). Largely that decision was made based on the art that appeared on the . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Shadowlands: Secrets of the Tainted Adventure Arc (PFRPG) by John Maki from BlackStar Studios

Supplement Review: The Vile Worm by Jimm Johnson and Jeff Lynk from Brave Halfling Publishing

So once you’ve killed broken in a few 0-level DCC RPG characters via The Ruins of Ramat from Brave Halfling Publishing, why stop there?

The next logical step is to slaughter get those new 1st level characters into another adventure! Thankfully Jimm Johnson and Jeff Lynk from Brave Halfling have just the thing… The Vile . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: The Vile Worm by Jimm Johnson and Jeff Lynk from Brave Halfling Publishing
