[Adventure] Pinnacle (1986) Dan Greenberg (Mayfair Games Inc.) Levels 4 – 5 I’m starting to consider the possibility that maybe Role Aids wasn’t all garbage. After the promising but flawed Clockwork Mage and the unadulterated oldschool glory that was Deadly Power perhaps the late 80s were Role Aids’s glory days and its catalogue is in fact brimming with undiscovered … More [Review] Pinnacle (AD&D 3pp); Fool me twice…

Can James Vail lead us through the darkness into … More [Review] Xas Irkalla Pt. III – Conclusion.

[Adventure/Self-help book] Broodmother Sky-fortress (2016) Jeff Rients (Lamentations of the Flame Princess) Level JEFF RIENTS GIVES ZERO FUCKS (but anything around 3-7 seems legit, Lvl 1’s only for the most hairy-chested of murderhobos) Hot damn what a time to be alive.

I; Once more unto the Breach!
Some time needs to be spent mentioning the overly elaborate and almost Byzantine random encounter tables for both inside and outside. It is regretable that most of them are just creatures, with no other details added, but to Chandler’s credit, a FUCKING RANDOM TABLE is added so you can generate complex encounters between multiple parties … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (lotfp) Pt. III; Barrier Peaks Redux
