What Lies Beyond Reason – 5th Edition – Campaign Guide 2

The revised edition of the second campaign guide for the unique What Lies Beyond Reason AP clocks in at 46 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page Kickstarter-backer-thanks, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 40 pages of content, so let’s take a look!

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!

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...
