Supplement Review: Advanced Feats: Might of the Magus by Sigfried Trent and Open Design

Confession time. Though we played through part of the Second Darkness adventure path for the Pathfinder RPG in my last group, I haven’t actually dived into what makes PFRPG so fantastic. To be fair, the giant hardbound book (or huge PDF) scares me a little.

The Gassy Gnoll: Adventures in Product Size

My how product sizes have changed. When this Gassy Gnoll started gaming, all the books were huge hardcovers. Yes, they were from TSR and cost a pretty penny even in the 1980s, but they could be used to do some serious damage in hand to hand combat and that was something.

News & Reviews from Around the Net: April 8, 2011

Sorry I’m a few weeks behind in posting my “Around the Net” articles. The first week I was out of town for a work-related conference (I’m a software engineer in my other life) and the next week I was simply recovering from the first week. Now however I’m back in the swing of things and . . . → Read More: News & Reviews from Around the Net: April 8, 2011
