Echelon Reference Series: Cleric/Oracle Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) [BUNDLE]

Echelon Reference Series: Cleric/Oracle Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) [BUNDLE] An Endzeitgeist.com review Okay, this massive reference-TOME clocks in at 580 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page blank, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 9 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a staggering 566 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, first things first – this is a reference work and I will rate it as such; it also represents a compilation of spells for the cleric/oracle classes and as such, there are constituent files for the respective spell-levels available, in case this colossal compilation breaks your bank. As you may have gleaned from the title, this book not only contains the PRD spells, but also contains a vast array of 3pp spells from a wide variety of different sources, making this one of the most massive comprehensive spell-sources you’re likely to find anywhere. It should also be noted that the warpriest, employing the cleric spel...

Echelon Reference Series: Clerics (3pp+PRD) An Endzeitgeist.com review This colossal reference-book clocks in at 542 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 9 pages of SRD, 1 page echelon reference dashboard, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a staggering 527 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. So, first things first – this is a reference work and I will rate it as such. This book focuses on the cleric and my review is based on the iteration that is based on both PRD and 3pp-material from a wide array of different sources. After a brief introduction, we begin with the cleric at a glance, including class skills by attribute, class features and the like; Rite Publishing’s by now venerable Divine Channeler is also listed in such a way. From these base classes, we move on to the archetypes – these are provided alphabetically, noting their respective sources under the header, making it pret...

Four Horsemen Present: Hybrid Class - Possessed

Four Horsemen Present: Hybrid Class - Possessed An Endzeitgeist.com review This hybrid class clocks in at 14 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page RSD, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The possessed is a hybrid of medium and witch and gains. Chassis-wise, d8 HD, 4 + Int skills per level, proficiency with simple weapons, light armor and light shields (interesting differentiation that we don’t see often). Armor heavier than light imposes spell failure chance. The possessed casts arcane spells drawn from the custom spell-list of the class. The class is a full caster, gaining access to all 9 spell levels and casts spells spontaneously, with Charisma as governing spellcasting attribute. The class gets knacks at 1st level and receives ¾ BAB-progression as well as good Will-saves. In a minor complaint, the 20th level entry has a superfluous “+6” in the 20th level entry’s BAB-column. It should be noted that 4th level yields the protected vessel ability, which nets a +2 bonus to Fortitude saves...

GM's Miscellany: Village Backdrops I (SNE) An Endzeitgeist.com review This compilation of Raging Swan Press' critically-acclaimed and well-received Village Backdrop-series is a massive 89 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 2 pages of editorial/foreword, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 81 pages of content - so let's get this on, shall we? Okay, first things first: This is NOT the same book as Village Backdrops I for Pathfinder! Instead, we have a different compilation on our hands. This is evident pretty much from the get-go, with a different page-count – but also with a slightly different organization and villages featured. The book, for example, begins with a brief chapter that should provide a helpful guide for GMs and prospective designers alike to make compelling villages, going through the process step by step, often with random tables to roll for sample names, general events to flesh out, etc. More importantly, the book notes important aspects from industry to h...

TP2 Building Resistance

TP2 Building Resistance It is nice to see one of the Dimgaard series that delves deep into the Dimgaard setting. I guess the "gimmick" is that this series uses only free or pay-what-you-want sources. If this goes to 20th level (like the previous series did), it will be interesting to see what there is.

Faiths & Avatars (2e)
by Robert L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/22/2017 23:04:02
Faiths & Avatars (2e) This is one of my favorite (definitely in the top 3) sourcebooks for 2E Forgotten Realms because it provides such great depth of detail for each of the deities within its pages. Just reading the entries sparks idea after idea for ways to make the various faiths in this setting come alive for the players, from divine guidance and intervention to religious/political intrigue. A player reading the entry for their patron deity gains a much better understanding of the faith, which can help to add depth in how they roleplay their character...rather than just a deity's name on their character sheet. The follow-up sourcebooks (Demihuman Deities and Powers & Pantheons) follow suit. All three soucebooks together provide a LOT more information than the 3E Faiths and Pantheons - which tried to capture the FR deities in one sourcebook, but with much shorter entries - and are invaluable to DM and player alike. Another great benefit with these books is that most of the material (fluff like dogma, ...

Pro RPG Audio: Medieval Village

Pro RPG Audio: Medieval Village This is a very good loop that sounds pretty much like you'd expect... * chickens, goats, pigs as you walk through town, with some cows in the distance * a flock of geese flying overhead (or around a nearby lake?). * a wagon rolling by * sounds from a blacksmith shop nearby * etc. Well done! :)

DDEX1-14 Escape from Phlan (5e)
by Randall A.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/22/2017 19:07:27
DDEX1-14 Escape from Phlan (5e) Escape from Phlan is a decent module for tier 2. There isis rare magic item available, a good mix of combat and RP opportunity, and some great backstory for the area. The writing is a bit disjointed and leads to a few stoppages in play if the DM is not thoroughly prepared. That doesn't preclude a five star rating for me, though.

Date Added: 08/22/2017 17:15:24
WG7 Castle Greyhawk (1e) Haven't played it yet so I don't know how to rate the material. I was asked by a player to look into converting this to 5E as he really wanted to play it. I agree with other reviewers that the scans are nice. I dinged it a star because it is doesn't have OCR searchable text.

by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/22/2017 16:32:15
DDAL05-02 The Black Road (5e) This is a good introduction to the season 5 tier 1 storyline as it brings the PCs to Parnast and introduces some of the NPCs that will appear again in later adventures. It is a guard the caravan adventure, but adds enough variety in to make it interesting instead of tired.

by Richard C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/22/2017 16:21:57
DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e) Much like DDAL5-14, this adventure lacks challenge for a typical tier 3 party. The combats were weak and are more like tier 2 fights than tier 3. It did have a Sudoku puzzle in it, so it has that going for it.
