Played: Descent into Avernus (DnD 5e)

Descent Into Avernus is a scavenger hunt in the true Railroad sense. It’s less about linear storytelling and more about chasing the story through dungeon crawls.

Played: Storm King’s Thunder (DnD 5e)

Queen Neri has been murdered and it looks like the small people are responsible. At the same time, Annam, the all-father of the giants, has broken the order of the giants. Every tribe and clan of the giants tries to get into the favour of the god of the giants through deeds and achievements.

Review of Trophy Dark

Trophy Dark is a horror storytelling game where the players are treasure hunters and set off to a dangerous place (abstractly called the forest, although it can also be a swamp, castle or something else entirely). However, the focus is not on finding treasure (that would be more like Trophy Gold), but on the character’s personal downfall. The game is a play to lose game, where the impending doom, whether death or physical as well as mental change, is in the foreground.

Review of Ten Candles

In Ten Candles, the entire group tells a tragic horror story. A story of hope but also of a world before its end. Why together? Because the players and the game master share the right to tell the story at the table. Why tragic? Because no matter how much hope the characters may have, they all find their end in this story.

Review of Arium: Create

On 52 pages, the principle of Arium:Create is explained in detail. The authors emphasize that it is a collaborative process and that we are building an Arium by mutual agreement. Therefore, safety tools are recommended via the Lacunae found in Arium. At several points it is pointed out that we consult concerned persons before we make a decision or change an idea with the Creation Tokens. An Arium for all should be created.

Designer Notes on the Summoner

Since Pathfinder 3.5 The Summoner has been a favorite class amongst many tabletop rpg players including myself. This summoner has a trusty eidolon by their side, which is their main summons. The Summoner also is capable of summoning several additional monsters to help out in battle. I have seen a few attempts at reconstructing the old Pathfinder class in DnD 5e but the examples I saw tried to mirror the Pathfinder Summoner too closely. Hence, they were stuck with a class that doesn’t really conform to the usual, accepted rule framework of 5e.

Designer Notes on the Fate Seeker

The Fate-Seeker class can draw a multiple number of cards per day. Similar to Sorcery Points, the amount of these actions increases with the level. When a card is drawn, a d6 is rolled (or a corresponding card from a deck at the table, such as the Tarokka Deck) and the effect of the card can now be cast on a creature within 60 ft. The effect will last a number of rounds depending on the wisdom modifier. Drawing a card is an action.

Fate-Seeker — A new cardbased spellcaster for DnD 5e

As one of the first self-written classes we would like to introduce the Fate-Seeker.

Inspired by card-based magicians, the Fate-Seeker class for Dungeons and Dragons 5e offers a mixture of that card magic and playing with tarot cards.

On 11 pages we introduce you to a magically gifted class that can change the short-term fate of themselves and others with the Deck of Sixty.
