A new, free PFRPG creature – the Exasperating Ooze

Wandering through forests, or in the deeps, pretty much anywhere adventurers can be found, the Exasperating Ooze is a strange, blob like ooze. Ranging in color from dull orange to dull red, with black vein like structures, it slowly moves through any terrain. What it survives on, where it comes from and even why it exists are all questions that …

Quick Review – Fey Folio: Clans of the Fey for the Pathfinder RPG

I have an abiding love for the world of the Fey.  It’s clear that Alluria Publishing share this love with me.  They’ve spent a lot of effort to make a fantastic product in the Fey Folio: Clans of the Fey . Let’s start with the content because, when it comes down to gaming, that’s the most important …

What about SORD? A (short) review…

Some days ago I wrote about game master screens and readers correctly pointed out that even if I don’t use a traditional screen, when I use my laptop in the game the computer serves the same purpose as the screen. Think of it as my electronic game master screen! Behind this screen I keep my campaign notes on Excel, PDF copies of several documents…

Pulled an all nighter

Wow, haven’t done that in a long time. We wrapped up the Council of Thieves campaign last night and it pretty much took all night. Things got a little bogged down and one of the players was running late due to family commitments. But we survived barely. Things got out of hand a couple times

Council of Thieves Fin. Hello Spelljammer

As you are reading this we should be beginning the last session of our Council of Thieves campaign thanks to the miracle of technology and scheduling posts to the future. This has been a fun ride. A member of our group who hadn’t DM’d for us before ran the entire Adventure Path. He did a

My Orcus & Me!

Today I got my Orcus, Prince of Undeath Gargantuan Figure. I was so excited to get the news that my FLGS had received it that I spent all day daydreaming about it. To the points where I remembered an old toy commercial from the late 80s for a doll for boys, My Buddy, and spent the whole day singing my version of it on my head. My …

Does the GM Screen deserve to go the way of the Dodo?

I always tell myself I’m not going to buy it. But I always do and I’m consistently underwhelmed or outright disappointed! There was a time when I had a use for Game Master Screens. They offered cardboard-based defense technology from the prying eyes of my players as well as tactical displays of essential information. When I played AD&D and AD&D 2 nd edition …

What about the Genius Guide to Mystic Godlings? A review…

Like my previous post this one is also a review of a PDF product we received a review copy of, this time around the Genius Guide to Mystic Godlings by Super Genius Games . This is the sequel to a previous electronic book, the Genius Guide to Godlings , which I do not own, but this book told me I did not need the first one…

Preparing for Pathfinder: Geography [Game]

Tonight I’ll be running our third session of Pathfinder.  The last two have been very well received, and my players have continued to exceed my expectations.  Rather than slaughter the goblins they discovered squatting in an abandoned farmhouse they fed the starving family and managed to glean some useful intelligence.  Thus far they have not entered into combat, but …

Review: Curse of the Crimson Throne Player’s Guide

I recent reviewed the Rise of the Runelords Player’s Guide quite favorably. Little did I realize that Paizo had taken what I thought was a great approach to introducing an adventure path to players and improve upon it so significantly. What exactly did they do that I like so much? Let’s take a look inside and find out. The Physical Book Like…

Review: Sunken Empires

Sunken Empires is one of Open Design ’s latest Pathfinder compatible products. On 82 pages you get in my opinion the definite works on underwater adventuring for Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG and much, much more. I don’t exaggerate when I tell you that this book is packed! It’s amazing how many stuff you can squeeze into a 82-pages softcover book. The softcover …

First Pathfinder Session Summary

It’s become a tradition that every summer I run (or play in) a D&D game of some sort.  This year I gathered a group of players who are almost entirely inexperienced in the ways of roleplaying games, save one who played with me the last two summers, and persuaded them to try out Pathfinder.  We had our first session on Thursday and…wow. …

4E AP: Osirion Session #2 (The old Monastery)

Our second session added Shai Hud, warforged paladin to the group’s mix, bring the group up to four and leaving us just one player short from our normal group size. Rakash’s player should join us in session #3, although I had his character follow around the party this session to avoid having him suddenly “appear” since I anticipated that the reclaiming of the monastery would span …

Pathfinder Session One Tonight

Tonight, we play the very first Pathfinder session of our summer. I've neither GMed nor played the game at this point, so it'll be an adventure for all of us, to be sure. I don't want to reveal too much here, just in case one of my players happens to read this pre-game, but if you want an idea what the…

Review: Rise of the Runelords Players’ Guide

This one’s kind of dated but I’ve been working my way through a backlog of Pathfinder stuff I’ve picked up over the past six months and this is just one more item in the pile.   The Rise of the Runelords was Paizo’s first post-Dungeon adventure path and it was the first indication that Paizo had some …

Few thoughts on our Pathfinder PBeM

My latest experiences with PBeM (Play-by-e-mail) are from a Pathfinder campaign that has recently started. So far I’ve enjoyed quite much since due the tight schedules, the possibility to roleplay when I have the time for it, really works. One thing which has made this PBEM possible is that my friend and I, have tried
