Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Hey everyone! Before we get into today’s review I wanted to talk about reviews moving forward for a little while. I have them lined up for the next couple weeks with the last one being the first Thursday in August. Currently I am not actively pursuing reviews as I am going to be cutting down the rate at which I do them. Doing them every week is time consuming and while I feel that I give a pretty good run…

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…

Hello everyone! Here we are at the start of the second revisit series! We begin to take a look back at the last 10 entries for the Libris Monstrum and some of the things I was unable to fit into our original outings. First up is the gorgon or, as we discovered is the more common name at table, the medusa. If you missed out on that entry go back and take a look. We talk about what gorgons are…

Review: The Northseat Book 1

Review: The Northseat Book 1

Hello everyone! Today we come back around to the North Seat with Book 1 of this campaign setting / adventure module. For those of you who are intrigued in this you can also find Book 2 which recently came out. If you were here a few weeks ago I was going to be reviewing this product back then, but realized I needed more time and how important it would be to review the Player’s Primer first. You can find the…

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…

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…

Resources For Every GM: Settings Part 4

We are going to continue the road of inspiration for today’s Resources article. Instead of classic D&D entities I want to share some settings from throughout the ages of Dungeons & Dragons. Each of these I love for different reasons. If you haven’t had a chance to play any of these you might still want to look into them. There are all kinds of inspiration you can take from those settings for your own and hopefully my brief mentions will…

Libris Monstrum #24: Oni

Libris Monstrum #24: Oni

Good evening everyone! Tonight we have another Twitter-voted creature to add to the Libris Monstrum! This time you asked for the oni and I am rather glad, because these beings have a diverse history at the table. My first interaction with them stems from the original 3rd Edition Monster Manual and moves forward from there. Here I will reveal some of their mythological roots, as well as some of the ways they have evolved in our RPGs since I saw…
