Infinite worlds lie on the Grand Stairs – here, we get Brokeworld in a 6-page pdf, of which 1 page is the front cover, 1 page the editorial, leaving 4 pages – so what is Brokeworld all about?
In in-character prose, this little supplement introduces us to the Brokeworld, a cosmic dumping ground for other gossamer worlds – plagued by size/shapechanging gremlins that propagate via faecal matter, roamed by the Unmade, broken practitioners of Eidolon, this world not only is notoriously hard to leave, its domain table also makes sure that poor saps stranded there have their good stuff slowly drained and means of taking control etc. all are present – a truly destitute, apocalyptic vista indeed!
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any significant glitches. Layout adheres to Rite Publishing’s purple-bordered two-column standard for LoGaS and the pdf even comes with bookmarks, in spite of its short length.
Written by Matt Banach, who has proven his mettle for the weird before in RiP’s superb Faces of the Tarnished Souk-series (which remains my go-to benchmark for NPC-supplements), Brokeworld is a captivating read of a supplemented by a superb top-notch artwork by Trung Ta Ha. Mechanically interesting, with ample narrative potential, it makes for a great place to integrate into a LoGaS-campaign and should also act as a neat inspiration for planar adventures of other settings. Final verdict? 5 stars + seal of approval.
