Review: Jalizar, City of Thieves

Cover

So I got Jalizar - City of Thieves just before Christmas in July -sales - which is good for you if you're interested in this great urban setting, as I got my review written when there's still little time to buy it on sale if you hurry. I had to finish this review in a hurry, so I apologise if I've forgotten something

Savage Sword & Sorcery goodness!

Beasts of the Dominions cover

I've been very busy lately, and even now I haven't been able to read Beasts of the Dominions completely, even if I got it... at least three months ago I believe? But I've read most of it and thought of giving a reviewish of it. To be honest, when reading the book's description when it kicked off at IndieGoGo I wasn't fully convinced if it would have enough substance to the cost. But I've learned to trust the quality of stuff written by Umberto Pignatelli and jumped in, and I'm happy I did so.

Playing DDM in winter terrain

One of the earliest terrain items I've created, after dungeon walls and some woods and rocks is winter terrain. Having often seen use, this terrain can be used in almost any genre and world; Marines invading arctic base of an evil mastermind, friends of Drizzt adventuring in Icewind Dale, An icy planet to be explored... 

Thoughts about D&D5E (after long 3E & 4E experience)

2 D20, d8

I guess everyone has their own preferences about what 5E should have. That's why the news of having a core system and optional rules, both for DM's and players, sounds like a good idea. This makes it even more important to have a very functional base system. D20, hitpoints, target numbers etc. will most likely stay pretty much as they were. Personally, I'm not so fond of hitpoints anymore, but I guess they are D&D.
