So What's The Weapon Like, Anyway?

Thu, 04/26/2012 - 05:02
So What's The Weapon Like, Anyway?Publisher: Raging Swan Press

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM'S RESOURCE by Richard Green

The PCs stand triumphant over the bloodied bodies of their fallen enemies. As they bind their wounds and begin to loot the corpses they ask, “So what’s that fighter’s weapon like, anyway?” An answer such as “it’s a masterwork longsword” is somewhat of an anticlimax, but who has the time to prepared detailed weapon descriptions these days given that the PCs will probably just sell it?

So What’s the Weapon Like, Anyway? banishes this problem by providing hundreds of detailed items for the busy GM to immediately use in his campaign.

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

High School Horror

Wed, 04/25/2012 - 19:50
High School HorrorPublisher: Library of Ancient Scroll

It seems that high school and horror themes just have to be mixed. Pop culture has easily assimilated the school corridors full of nerds, lonely „emo-black-metal-listeners”, football team players and cheerleaders, as well as tutors, headmasters and, of course, janitors. 

The next pages contain ideas for adventures, locations and characters, for use by a GM who wants to create a story full of horror, terror and revulsion – which are, according to Stephen King, the three essential keys to a good Horror story – connected with high school. 

And one more thing... 

All the ideas which I’ve mentioned here more or less capture the genre High School Horror. Let’s remember that RPG, most of all, should be fun. We – the Game Masters – don’t want to cause trauma in our players – we want them to have some good time. I hope that you like these ideas and that you use at least some of them, or that they provide you with ideas for your own, high school horror-inspired, scenarios.

Hex Grid with Isometric Triangle Inset

Wed, 04/25/2012 - 19:31
Hex Grid with Isometric Triangle InsetPublisher: Frugal GM

This graph paper combines the superior facing of a hex grid and the ease of use of a square grid layout by merging a 1” hex grid with 1/2” isometric triangle insets.  The triangles come together at the center of each hex, allowing you to easily draw right angles.  You no longer have to use one map for indoor use and another map for outdoor use.

This grid setup was originally created for use with fantasy RPGs to help with placement of minis that moved in multiples of 1/2 standard movement rate, but is also convenient for use with other genres.

Print off as many sheets as you need, no more buying graph paper!  This download consists of graph paper sized at Letter, Legal, and International A4.  Also included is a roughly 4 &frac;12; square 300 DPI portable network graphics (PNG) file.  Use this PNG file to resize for larger/smaller grids or to tile together for a larger format.

GM Idea: Use your favorite graphics program to tile the PNG to a large size, like 3’by 4’, and have your local copy shop print it to paper or vinyl.  Laminate or cover your printout with acetate (available cheaply at larger fabric stores) or even plexiglass for a cost-effective battlemat.

Don't Read This Book

Wed, 04/25/2012 - 16:22
Don't Read This BookPublisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC

Down a lonely alleyway, under a starless sky, lies a city that never was, yet is: the Mad City, where nightmares walk the streets, and a good night's sleep can get you killed.

Here, then, is a book from that place. Within these recovered pages are the tales of the Awake, insomniacs who've walked those perilous streets, bringing a bit of the power of dream with them to fight back the night—always at a terrible cost.

For many, it will not end well. For a few, they might just become heroes—or at least find their way back home.

For you, a choice. Turn away. Don't read this book. And maybe you'll continue to rest easy. Or open the cover and enter a world unlike any you've ever dared to imagine...
