The first thing you’ll probably notice is the great Falling Leaves-comic by Ashton Sperry, which made me laugh. The Tattlebox as an item itself (rather as a major artefact) gets its full stats and makes for an interesting, albeit dangerous tool. Nice idea!
There is an extended discussion on how to split the party without boring the players and why it is actually a good idea. Or at least how you can enhance you game with this technique. While the column did not offer explicit new information for me, it did remind me of some basics I haven’t consciously thought about in quite a while.
The Marketplace of the file offers you a fine selection of new weapons – from the light ballista, the chain-whip and the heavy meteor hammer to the war fork we get neat selection of martial toys to crush our enemies. Or cut or pierce them. 6 weapon features for them are included and usually offer up to a +2 bonus on specific actions. Nice!
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout is clean, writing is concise and the material is balanced, cool, helpful and best of all: FREE. The good kind of free, the high quality, almost KQ-level quality, but FREE. 0 bucks. You have no reason not to pick this up, it’s a great pdf and my final verdict is 5 out of 5 stars and the Endzeitgeist seal of approval. Go check this out!
