Free RPG Day Review: Pathfinder Bonus Bestiary

Free RPG Day Review: Pathfinder Bonus Bestiary
Today’s review is of Paizo’s Bonus Bestiary for their Pathfinder system. If you don’t know what Pathfinder is, I strongly suggest you go check it out. It’s well worth your time. I can’t wait for the full system to be released. The Bonus Bestiary just wet my appetite even more for the release of Pathfinder. ...

Adventure Hook Thursday: Message from the Dead

This could apply to a fantasy realm or a modern one. One of the PCs receives a message from a dead relative. If it’s a fantasy setting, the message comes in the form of a ghostly manifestation of the dead one. If it is a modern/future genre, the message is the deceased’s voice left on ...

Free RPG Day Review: Hearts of Chaos

Free RPG Day Review: Hearts of Chaos
Today’s review is of Hearts of Chaos, also by Goodman Games. Hearts of Chaos is an Amethyst adventure. The Amethyst system uses the core 4e rules and expands on them to allow for a modern-ish setting. Why modern”-ish”?

Free RPG Day Review: Hero's Handbook - Immortal Heroes
Today’s review is the front half (or is it the back half?) of the duo-flip-reversed-book. This side is the Immortal Heroes which is part of Goodman Games’s Hero’s Handbook line of work. The book held fourteen pages of very well written, well thought out and nicely put together content. It covered nine different end-goals or ...

Free RPG Day Review: Hero’s Bane

Free RPG Day Review: Hero's Bane
Today’s review is about Hero’s Bane from Claymore Entertainment. The book opens with a brief overview of the eight ages of the history of the world, Ela’Tain. The information in there was very brief and hardly relevant to learning the system. It was also poorly written. Sure, the grammar and spelling were correct, but the ...

Adventure Hook Thursday: Four Arms

Here’s a cyberpunk hook for you guys. Pizza delivery men (and a few women) have turned up shot dead on their runs. This is nothing unusual in a dystopic future, but there are rumors that all of the deliveries were to different houses and the pizzas were all topped with anchovies and mushrooms. There have ...

Three strange portals opened up in town. Two are blue and seem to link to one another. The third is purple. Where does it lead? The PCs are hired to find out where it goes and return with information. Oh. By the way, people that go through the blue portals seem to come through with ...
