The RPG Interview Room: Chivalry & Sorcery – the Medieval Role Playing Game

Chivalry & Sorcery is a game that saw light of day around 40 years ago and some people decided to fall in love with it. ¿Enough to be at it around 40 years later? Well, this is indeed the case. When Steve Turner, from Britannia Game Design fell in love with Chivalry & Sorcery, he not just decided to play it, but also to keep at it for years and years and eventually buy the license so he could release more versions of the game and go to Kickstarter with the latest one. Improving on a classic is not...

Star Log.EM – Space Goblin Options

Star Log.EM – Space Goblin Options clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

Star Log.EM-058: Kami

Star Log.EM-058: Kami clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look! On the introductory page, we get a pretty massive subtype graft that grants kami immunity to bleed, polymorph and mind-affecting effects, resistance 10 to three energy types, as well as CR-based telepathy. Additionally, they designate a ward, which may be a creature, location or object. The kami may merge with the ward and share senses as a standard action, and emerge just the same way. Nice: This takes...

Starfarer Adversaries: Bounty Hunter

Starfarer Adversaries: Bounty Hunter clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let’s take a look! The bounty hunter herein comes in three iterations, all of which are human soldiers – the rookie (CR 4), the regular one (CR 8) and the veteran (CR 12). The builds make use of the Spell Bane feat and the bounty hunter theme; the latter being a welcome, if unusual deviation from the straight application of class grafts here, as far as I’m concerned. The...
