Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Hello everyone and welcome to another self-imposed challenge! When I had the Twitterverse vote on these, which feels like months ago, I was very happy that the Oni-Blooded sorcerer came out as one of the things I should try to do. In the time since then I have managed to produce an entry of the Libris Monstrum that talks about oni and come up with some ideas on what I might do with this class. We’re going to start with…

Review: Helheim Unbound

Review: Helheim Unbound

Good afternoon everyone! Or I guess it is evening by the time you are reading this….assuming you click the link today. Anyways, I have a review that I have been looking forward to sharing for a few reasons. This game is one that I have had a chance to see a couple versions of. Not a lot, mind you, but I think it has been at least 3 and each one has shown some wonderful improvements. Not only that but…

Plague Doctor Class Draft 1

Plague Doctor Class Draft 1

Greetings everyone! Today we finally get back to working on some class-based stuff. If you recall a recent subclass article, I discussed using the bard college of lore as a simple way to make a plague doctor character. If you haven’t read it, you can check it out here. For the TL;DR I concluded that, while possible, the plague doctor really deserves its own class. To this end I decided to skip the attempting to build another subclass this month…

Review: Awaken RPG

Review: Awaken RPG

Today, just a few days late, I have a review for an indie RPG that I had never heard of until the publishers decided to shoot me an e-mail. Awaken is a dark fantasy game with a new supplement that is on Kickstarter right now and you should definitely shoot over there and help if you can. There is only a few days left and they still need a bit of money to make their goals, but if this review…

Mini-Review: Orc Stabr

Mini-Review: Orc Stabr

Today I have a very interesting review for you, the likes of which I hope to see more of. This is a one-page RPG and, for those who don’t know, the concept has given rise to lots of amazing little games over the past few years. You might be familiar with All Outta Bubblegum, Lasers & Feelings, or Honey Heist. The point of games like these is to generate an easy and fun RPG that can be used at any…

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

When this was the topic that was voted on by those of you over on Twitter, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do. I put the option in there because, frankly, the warlock patrons are pretty lacking. This isn’t to say that you cannot get a diverse set of warlocks. In fact, I think warlocks are probably one of the classes with the most diversity among builds. Between patron, pact type, spell selection, and invocation selection there…

Mini-Review: Role vs. Roll

Mini-Review: Role vs. Roll

Hello everyone, this week I am taking some more time to review a physical product for the table. This time, though, it isn’t just for Game Masters but for the table as a whole. It is one meant to be used by everyone, can be used in any game, and hopefully adds some fun to your sessions! The product is a deck of cards known as Role vs. Roll and it made by Jack Monkey Games who you might recognize…

Preview: The Retroverse

Preview: The Retroverse

Today I have something I have been waiting to look at for quite a while. It is also something I was hoping to be able to direct you towards. Sadly, the Kickstarter has been delayed but the reasons are good. Despite all the work that has been accomplished and how far along this project has gone, there were some simple problems that Chris and Lluis ran into with general logistics of the release. This was manly promised rewards, tenability, and…

Sub-Class: Bard College of the Plague Doctor

Sub-Class: Bard College of the Plague Doctor

Okay everyone, I need to start today off by saying that this sub-class challenge has been just that: a challenge. Some of these come out better than others and all of them need a little work. There is something that is beginning to trend with my thought process though. For the Hag Coven wizard (find it here if you haven’t read it) I was unable to really flesh out the entire build. The farthest I got for features was level…

Review: North Seat Player’s Primer

Review: North Seat Player’s Primer

Hello everyone! Remember when I was here last week and I had to change up the review? Well, it definitely ended up being the right choice. Today I do not bring you the review of the first book of the North Seat campaign setting. Instead I have the Player’s Primer which is a supplement to go along with the setting and an absolute must if you are going to play North Seat Book 1. I will get into that, but…
