The Continuity of  Community 
It’s easy to forget, sometimes, what the most important part of a role-playing game is. We get caught up in things like new crunch, poetic flavor text, or debates over one edition versus another that we lose sight of the most fundamental aspect of RPGs: the people we play them with. Whether you’re LARPing, playing an MMORPG, or sitting around a table rolling dice, it’s the other players that make the game special, far more so than any computer program or rulebook. That’s the main reason why I think the OGL is really something incredible. It took the framework for the most well-known fantasy role-playing game and irrevocably made it possible for anyone to publish their tweaks, fixes, redesigns, or simple additions to the system – and in doing so made everyone able to add something to everyone else’s game. There’s no better example of this than The Grand OGL Wiki. There, dozens of publishers have allowed the Open Game Content of their works to be made freely available to anyone and everyone who wants to add them to their game. And even beyond that, the DM Sketchpad is continuously updated with the submissions of the people who enjoy the site and want to give something back, whether it’s the work of a famous game designer or the new Dungeon Master who has never been published before. The Grand OGL Wiki is grand not because of the sheer volume of Open Game Content that it hosts, but because of the community of gamers who’ve rallied around it, contributing materials and enjoying the fruits of each other’s labors.

Of course, every community has its pillar, and for ours that’s the founder of The Grand OGL Wiki, Mark Gedak. Mark not only started this repository of OGC materials (being the first to create such a thing, after many false starts by other people), but sought permission from publishers to reprint their material, graciously acquiescing to those who didn’t want their work put up on the internet for free, even though he could have legally done so. Pulling the lion’s share of the material by himself, it’s amazing to consider that Mark decided that he still wasn’t doing enough for gamers everywhere, and decided to start up a daily offering of new content to boot. He even takes requests for what people want to see in the DM Sketchpad (so be sure to email him if there’s something you want to see)! Having said that, I found it very apropos that Mark’s most recent addition to the site was to add a “Friends of GOW” page, which gives a shout-out to everyone who has helped pull existing OGC or donated new material of their own. The list of names is impressive, not just for the fact that there are some industry notables there, but also for just how many people want to help make sure other gamers have great content to draw on. I’m proud to have my name there, and hopefully there’ll be more names listed on that page in the future; the most vibrant communities are those that keep a steady stream of new talent coming in. As much as I’d like to end by paraphrasing the Beatles here, I can’t quite say that the OGC that you take is equal to the OGC that you make. However, that ideal still pretty well sums up what The Grand OGL Wiki is all about, and I can’t wait to see what we come up with next. - Shane O’Connor

Reviews 
The following is a review of Remarkable Races: The Boggle (Pathway to Adventure Edition) by Alluria Publishing. This 13 page PDF (10 pages of useable content) retails for $2.50 at Rpgnow right now and details the magically transformed boggle race (formerly goblins). All of the Remarkable Races line were developed for 4th edition Dungeons and Dragons and now appear to be being converted over to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The product provides you with background on the origin of the boggles, their description, their ecology, interaction with other races and religion as one would expect from any race supplement. Unlike other books, it also details how the boggles get along with other members of Alluria’s remarkable races line. At their heart the boggles are civilized tinker goblins with short exciting lives that end in madness. The class abilities do not look overpowering and they look like an easy race to slide into a campaign. There are seven feats which are available to boggles. For the most part these seem okay. I’m concerned with the implications of the Arcane Craft feat which allows a boggle attempt to craft magic items without the prerequisite item creation feats. If I’m reading this write this feat allows you to bypass eight craft feats for a minor complication. There is a PRC in here called “The Demolisher” that seems atypical to the ecology that was established earlier in the book. It explains the reason why this evil, midnight bomber, what bombs at midnight is included but I would have preferred a boggle artificer or boggle technomage instead.

The product closes with a couple pages of mundane equipment like boggle wrenches, turbopters, and mechanical arms. There are also base monster stats for a boggle wizard and a mechnomancer (a boggle/construct hybrid). I expect boggles to appear soon in my campaigns and I’d like to include some boggle NPCs or boggle gear here on the DM Sketchpad but there does not appear to be an OGC declaration so I don’t know if I can call them boggles or what for certain Alluria considers open content.
 

    Reviewer’s Note:  Since writing the review  Alluria Publishing has updated their product  identity statement and they open game content  declaration. It is now possible for me add a  Boggle npc later in the document.   

I've had some time in the last month or so to dig my way through Charles Rice's newest product line. There are two releases out in the "World of Arkara" line: the first being "Gazetteer of the Known World" and the second being the "Gazetteer of the Canterbury Isles" which delves deeper into a specific region of the world. These two products are part of a new setting designed

for the OSRIC ruleset and are available at Rpgnow and RpgObject's store.

and alternate classes like crusader, bounty hunter and anti-paladin. While the description of the lands of Arkara are interesting, they are too short to provide much of a starting point for adventure. The Gods of Arkara are very mechanical, and I sort of wanted more detail on the gods goals or expections of their followers sort of like what One Bad Egg did in their Gods of the Shroud release. There are also a couple editing issues in this product that aren't present in the second product. Hmmm, it seems I mostly beat up on the first book, thankfully it gets better from here on in.

The Gazetter of the Known World is the main setting book for the World of Arkara series and provides an overview of the setting including the Gods of Arkara, overview of the continents and islands, character options and flavor, character titles, crime and punishment. One of the things that I typically like about Charles Rice's work is that usually it is very straightforward and well-balanced or crunchy. So it seemed strange to me initially that he was interested in writing a fantasy campaign setting, which I always think need to be a fluffier sort of product. I think I came to this reivew with a bit of bias; I was not really sold on the World of Arkara Gazetteer, but I also was not sold on the Greyhawk Gazetteer when it came out. I think the problem for me is that a world gazetteer of this nature typically needs to touch upon so many things than nothing really gets the depth that it deserves. If you plan to use Arkarra for an OSRIC setting (which I would think would be the reason to by it) then it is absolutely essential to pick up because of the OSRIC rule-specific content added. Such items include the new

The Gazetter of the Canterbury Isles is the second product in this series and I think it is the one that I prefer the most. I think the writing is stronger in this product because it is more focused on one region of the world. The Canterbury Isles has about fourteen or fifteen locations for adventures to explore. The area of the Canterbury Isles is a powderkeg of racial conflict. Each of the regions has background informations as well as one or two adventure hooks for bringing the characters into this region and how they can help the region's inhabitants. There is also a fully developed city included so that DMs have a location for urban adventures.

The descriptive section also includes a number of adventure hooks to get your campaign off the ground. In the second half of the book, the major NPCs are detailed with several paragraphs of description, motivation and tactics. Additionally their OSRIC stats are provided but if you aren't using OSRIC and are instead maybe using the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game it wouldn't be a ton of work to translate a Half-Orc Fighter 5/Assassin 5 into say a Half-Orc Fighter 5/Assassin 5, though it may be a bit more work if you want to go to another retro-clone system like Labyrinth Lord. The book closes with two alternate character classes—the guardsman and the cloistered cleric. This book is packed with ideas and is easily adaptable to other DnDish systems. If you are looking for a new setting for the Osric ruleset, these two supplements are a cheap way to get into a new world. If you are looking for a new setting and don't plan to use OSRIC as your rule set, I think you could skip the Gazetteer of the Known World and pick up the Gazetteer of the Canterbury Isles instead. It has lots of ideas and is easily adaptable to any DnDish type ruleset.

Stardust Background 
Aurelia Perez grew up in Rosario, Argentina as  the daughter of a wealthy industrialist. She  wanted for nothing growing up—personal  tutors, gymnastics lessons, dance lessons. When  she turned 16, her powers first manifested. She  was able to move things with her mind, fly short  distances and didn’t seem to get hurt as easily.  She decided that she should try to help others  because she had been blessed so much growing  up and adopted the identity of Stardust to fight  crime and try to make Rosario a better place for  all people to live. Knowing that she would need  a cover for her superhero activities, Aurelia  completed teacher’s college and took casual  work as a substitute teacher. She is well liked in  her work, but is considered a bit flighty because

Dzon came to the southern wastes by accident. He was originally captured by a southern trader who intended to sell him in the desert slave markets. His captivity was short-lived because on the second week of the journey across the desert, Dzon killed the trader and rallied the other slaves including two gnolls to his will. For fifteen years Dzon and the savage horde disrupted trade throughout the southern desert, destroyed cities and shires of the desertfolk and looted ancient burial chambers and crypts. Dzon’s fortunes shifted when he encountered a strange urn.

As Dzon cracked the seal on the urn a column of roiling earth spilled out of the arcane prison and took the from a powerful man, standing nine feet tall with reddish brown skin and draped in swirling silks. At first Dzon didn’t know what to think of this strange apparition but sensed about him and otherworldly power. The being spoke directly to Dzon’s mind and identified himself as the Bringer of Curses. Unimpressed Dzon sought to strike the strange man down but was suddenly held by two quakefathers who appeared to save the Dao. Feeling some affection from Dzon, despite his stupidity, the Bringer of Curses forged a covenant with the savage. Within the covenant with the Bringer of Curses, Dzon made the following oath.

answer his need. From him I take the strength to do the tasks he gives me and the will to do what must be done. At this point Dzon became an aspirant on the path to immortality under the Bringer of Curses’s guidance. Even though he pledge his life and purpose to the Dao, the Dao simply wanted him to continue to spread chaos, fear and death throughout the region. Feeling a still closer natural connection Dzon began to adopt the path of the druid. PFRPG Note: As an aspirant both Channel and Infuse (immortal skills) are considered class skills for Dzon.

Fighting Mages 
The Great Maw 
Rapacious even for an otyugh, the Great  Maw’s appetite spawns from the very  power embodied in the sin of gluttony.  Years ago it even dared feast on another of  its kind. The act imbued it with powers  based on the consumption of other otyugh.  Unfortunately, the Great Maw can only be  sated by eating otyugh flesh, but can eat  anything. It is always hungry and always  eating. All living creatures are threatened  when it is present.  Legends say years ago when the Great Maw  was younger and smaller it cut a deal with a  city’s mayor to keep the sewers free of  other otyugh and nastier things. Once it  grew too large for the confines of the sewer  it moved into the swampy countryside  where it now preys on lone villagers,  passing caravans and the herds of the area’s  cattle farmers. It is rumored it also  maintains a pen of young otyugh that are  eaten to quell its incessant hunger.  The Great Maw prepares for combat by  casting false life, chill touch, mage armor,  protection from energy (fire), and extended  haste on itself. (These are reflected in its  stats.) It then uses enervation or ray of  enfeeblement to weaken opponents so  they are easy to swallow, and sprints into  combat. When chill touch is used up, it  either casts vampiric touch for the extra hit  points or quickened burning hands. It  attempts to bite and consume as many  opponents at one time as possible. 

Water Retention Dzon has adapted to the harsh nature of the desert. He adds his druid level to his Constitution score to determine how long he can go without water and may make a Fortitude save instead of a Constitution check to ward off the effects of thirst. Water Sense Dzon is able to automatically sense water within 100 ft of his location. Additionally as a full round action he may make a Perception check (DC 20) to instinctively know in which direction the nearest water lies.

Most people assume Serafina is simply a  spoiled young woman with an eccentric  attachment to a creepy, childhood doll. The  two are almost never apart. Serafina even  demands her servants set a place for Zzyk at  the dinner table.  However, when Serafina does not get what  she wants, she flies into a murderous rage  and attempts to kill those who thwart her  desires. Zzyk also demands an offering  every now and then for its help. This usually  means a blood sacrifice. Although Serafina  has a few hired thugs carry out the deed,  she’s not above watching the event or even  delivering the final coup de grace.  Serafina prepares for combat by casting  true strike on herself. She does this just  before combat to bump up her Dexterity by  2 points (as per her bloodline arcane). Once  Zzyk casts mage armor on her she goes into  a rage and attacks. Both rage and mage  armor are reflected in her stats.  For its part Zzyk tries to remain  inconspicuous and away from melee. 
Zzyk hangs back and covers Serafina with daze  monster and magic missile. When in melee  Serafina uses intimidating glare to demoralize  any opponents not affected by Zzyk.

Becoming a Vampire in Modern20  There are currently no horror rules for Modern20. In their stead, I’m using a hybrid of the Modern SRD with some of the rules from Fantasci: Creature Creator. This is what I’m using for a “vampire template” Ability Scores Str +4, Dex +2, Con 0, Wis +2, Cha +4; Vampires are stronger, faster, more observant and charming than regular humans. Vampires use Cha to determine bonus hit points instead of Constitution. Feats Vampires gain the following bonus feats: Natural Weapons (fangs, Piercing), Undead Physiology (DR is negated by wood and silver). SQ blood drain (any damage done by fangs heals vampire), sunlight vulnerability (1d6 damage/round). All other typical vampire abilities must be taken as feats as the character continues to gain experience. True Death When reduced to 0 hit points a vampire explodes into fiery ash. A bodies is never left behind. What about professions, hobbies and  occupations?  When creating monsters for the Modern20 system you may forgo these three parts of character design. Since the newlydeads were human until their wedding night I’ve decided to build them with backgrounds and hobbies but not occupations.

New Occupation: Bouncer  You make your living providing security for dance clubs or strip joints. Professional Skills Influence, Streetwise, Unarmed Improved Feats Body Block: You may designate two opponent each round to effect with this feat.; Diesel: +1 additional hp per level; Improved Grab: You gain a +2 bonus to grapple opponents; Strength Training: +2 Strength

Mutant Future  
Land of the Primechs!
In a distant future, the world has been devastated by nuclear and biological war. Society has fallen and the free non-mutant humans struggle to survive in a harsh new world. In the settlement of Costa Flux, the humans were at constant risk from the deadly slagons that tracked through the nearby desert. To better combat the slagon, the humans created a number of robotic gorillas to help depend the settlement. These Primechs found the humans that created them to be inferior and secret increased their own numbers and enslaved the humans. Primechs Hit Dice 50 hp Mutations Energy ray plus 2 beneficial, any category A primech might have been mistaken for a gorilla or great ape if such things still existed. Flat, black, metal skin covers their muscular bodies. Their eyes glow red, purple, or yellow depending on their mood. The typically they have enhanced strength (+1 Str) over that of normal humans but tend to be typical with respect to other attributes. Primechs also have a climb speed of 60 feet.

Slagon
This strange hybrid between a slug and a dragon slowly oozes across the landscape, leaving a burning, sticky residue on the ground (1d6 burn damage for every round exposed to this residue—it eats through clothes and leather in a single round). Its scaly, greenish skin provides strong protection right up to the eyestalks. Salt causes 4d6 damage per round to the Slagon, as it penetrates the scaly skin and causes it to bubble, crack, and melt. They grow up to 20' in length, and up to 20' high (counting eyestalks).

Devourer in the Kingdom of  Scalding Darkness 
Deep within the eternal prison of the Burning King, a hapless otyugh wandered about searching for food. On his journey he ate many wonderful things like thoqqua and minor xorn and he grew fat and tall. One day he stumbled upon a large stone door bound with silver chains. Hearing the sounds of angry thrashing behind the door, he broke the silver chains and swung open the door looking for his next meal. His first life was ended in an instance as the binding was broken and the Burning King (Dread Wraith Efreeti) emerged and torn the otyugh’s soul from his body. The otyugh rose as a shadowy dread wraith moments later. This minor creature was beneath the Burning King’s contempt and released it. Evermore

Constrict and Disease  As an incorporeal undead the otyugh loses the ability to grapple and constrict and probably doesn’t carry any disease. This really diminishes the otyughness of this template version. Perhaps a supernatural disease such as soul rot or ghost ache would be appropriate?

Prismatic Otyugh
The prismatic otyugh is a mutated version of the standard otyugh that has been hit two many times by prismatic spells such as colour spray.

The Cavalier  Kuriski Swiftaxe was the third daughter of Kelin Swiftaxe and a bit of a disappointment. She never excelled at weaponsmithing like her brothers, nor was pious enough to enter into the holy service of Kolock the Careful Planner (see Gods of the Grand OGL Wiki). Still was honest, fair minded and loyal to her family and clan. When the hill giants of the Talith-Cor laid siege to her clanhold, Kuriska took up arms under the banner of the Knights of the Bulwark.

Discerning Eye This ability to can used to determine the quality of magical armour or weapons with a check against DC 25. Kuriski can also evaluate normal weapons, armour and steeds by interacting with them for a couple of minutes. What I’m adjusting from the 3.X to the  Pathfinder ruleset:  Hmm, it looks like I don’t need to change anything. The cavalier uses a d12 Hit Dice in the source material and traditionally the cavalier has used a d12 as well. So even though to be consistent with the PSD it should be reduced to a d10, I think it is important to respect the legacy of the game we play and leave it at a d12.

(dance) +7, Stealth +12 LanguagesCommon, Infernal, telepathy 100 ft. SQ inert Environment Hell, Urban Organization solitary Treasure standard Draw Essence (Su) Once per day, an arusities can draw the essence from one evil, living creature. This deals 1d3 Charisma damage. Inert (Ex) An arusities can become inert and appear as a simple doll. When inert, she does not radiate an aura of evil and an observer must succeed on a DC 20 Perception check to notice that the doll-like demon is actually alive. Ecology Arusities or “doll devils” as some have named them are native to the fiery pits of Hell. They look like porcelain dolls and although most are female some male arusities have been reported. They never speak directly but prefer to communicate through telepathy. They are immune to the fires of hell and can see clearly in the darkest of night. Habitat and Society Arusities are corruptors of children. They play with children and counsel them to commit acts of selfishness and deceit. Over time the doll demon encourages child to act in a more and more selfish way until the children are firmly on the path of evil. Once they corrupt a child, they draw essence from the child until such time that the child slips into coma or death. As the child passes, the arusities gobbles up the escaping soul and shifts automatically back to hell.

Summoning Arusities It is not magic ritual or spell that summons the arusities from the pits of Hell but desire. Specially, an arusities is drawn to the Material plane by the desires of a child who wants for nothing, yet still want’s more. This young greed pulls the arusities into the life of selfish children. Devil, Aurokari Jason writes…These are the Aurokari, a breed of 'Enforcer Devils', hell's sergeants. Discipline is something they strive for in all their recruits, as well as themselves. Smart, tactical, brutal war-machines. They prefer to charge into combat from a distance, to take advantage of their incredible charge ability. They mercilessly beat down their opponents, and use their fear aura ability to potentially scare as many foes they can. After charging into combat, they attempt to disarm their enemies of their weapons, and should they have no weapons, they attempt to trip their foe. Appearance: Aurokari have large opal coloured ram-like horns protruding from their heads and large black scale-like plates covering their spine and chest. Dark cloven hooves, brutish faces, and blood red skin compliment the inhumanity these creatures are known for.

A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the same bone devil’s aura for 24 hours. Other devils are immune to the aura. The save DC is Charisma-based Powerful Charge (Ex) When an Aurokar charges, its gore attack deals 4d6+10 points of damage Incredible Charge (Ex) When an Aurokar charges, it gains +1 to it's damage roll for each 10 feet it travels beyond the first 10.

(6-24 plus 1 leader of 4th level per 4 clowns, 3-12 freaks (malformed half-fiendish humanoids of various types), 2-12 curiosities (fiendish or half-fiendish magical beasts or aberrations of various sizes and kinds), 6-24 fiendish animals (usually bears, elephants, horses and lions) one rakshasa barker per 6 freaks or curiosities and 1 ringmaster (typically a 5th level or greater clown, though other high-level fiends can serve this function as well) Treasure clown equipment --------------------------------------------------Clown Equipment: The average clown carries a number of items on its person at all times which it can seemingly produce from nowhere thanks to its shrink item ability. Any given clown will carry at least 2d4 of these objects and will acquire any similar object if the opportunity presents itself. Typical items include: Oversized mallets (treat as a medium-sized warhammer), acidfilled seltzer bottles, (ranged touch attack, 1d6 points of acid damage, 5 ft. range increment, 3 shots per flask), juggling implements (lit torches, daggers, clubs, full bottles of alchemist’s fire), caltrops, marbles (thrown, they cover a 10 ft. square area, those running through the marbles may fall as though a grease spell (Caster level 1st) were cast on the area in question), dead chickens (used primarily to horrify victims or as makeshift clubs (1d4-1 damage)), an undersized tricycle (a clown can ride the tricycle to gain a +10 speed bonus), flowers, hands (both false and those taken from previous victims), ventriloquist dummies (5% chance per that such is also imbued with evil, treat as a small animated object), and so forth. Collapsible (Su): A clown can squeeze into any container of tiny or larger size, regardless of the size of the opening or the container in question in 1 round. Moreover, the space taken up by the clown does not prevent another clown from squeezing into

the same container. Theoretically, an infinite number of clowns could crawl into a single container regardless of the container’s size. Only one clown can exit such a container at a time and exiting the container, like entering it, is a full-round action. A clown is powerless to free himself from a container locked from the outside. For some unknown reason a clown cannot use this ability to squeeze through narrow openings in doors or other barriers. Teleport (Su): A clown can teleport to any location it has seen within 1 mile as a standard action. It can only do so as long as no living creature is viewing it or the location it teleports to. If the location it is attempting to move to is observed it will appear in the nearest unoccupied, unobserved space. A clown can utilize this ability so long as it has complete cover. A clown prefers to prey on weak, innocent victims but will not hesitate to deal with more powerful beings if they threaten its plans. They use the common belief that they are human performers to confuse and misdirect opponents before beginning a campaign of terror and confusion designed to instill panic in its prey. A clown will often stalk its enemies noticeably, using its ability to teleport to keep one step ahead of them at all times. They give chase on foot only to terrify their victims. A clown may torment a single party for days or even weeks, picking off the weak and slowly moving up to stronger members. Those that speak delight in taunting and tormenting their prey verbally as well as physically. When its prey’s fear is at its height, the clown moves in for the kill, using hideous laughter to incapacitate its enemies. Those performers who dress as clowns unknowingly invite the creatures to steal them away and replace them in the night.

The actually is not much of a problem. If you are looking for more evil clowns there is always the Club, Coin, Cup, Joker and Sword Facada, Red Jester, Factured Jester PRC, Demon Jester and Iain Fyffe’s Jester Core Class.

Ecology The shrill scream that can be heard in distant tunnels or the shift of unstable rocks is not a trick of wind or illusion for the eye. Many times they observations are the direct result of a passing squawler. These bizarre aberrations move about the caverns beneath the world content to live in the darkness in peace playing with the motion and power of sound that they mentally control and that whistles through their perforated bodies. Habitat and Society If squawlers have ever built cities none have been found. They are territorial creatures though and often make the boundaries of their territory with as series of carefully stacked rocks or string of coins laid on the ground. If they find creatures in their territory they will try to scare them with control sound and control object. They only attack with their bite or energy ray if attacked first.

Hammer Spanner Hammer was once the 3rd vice underengineer in charge of workings and gears within the 14th platform of the great whirling machine that clomps and thumps along the valley of elven pleasures. He was firted recently after it was discovered that he was secretly destroying the inventions of the 2nd vice underengineer in charge of workings and gears within the 14th platform of the geat whirling machine that clomps and thumps along the valley of elven pleasures—plus he cheats at cards. Hammer has always enjoyed destroying things, it could be that part of his brain wasn’t properly transformed or perhaps he has always been touched by boggle madness but regardless the reason he enjoys wrecking stuff. He has recently become fascinated by bombs, which can’t be a good thing for the 14th platform of the great whirling machine that clomps and thumps along the valley of elven pleasures that fired him.

Practical  Adventuring  
As adventurers grow in skill and fame, they tend to acquire an ever-growing collection of paraphernalia. While they usually focus mostly on their “golf bags” of magic items or cache of gold pieces and gems, it’s inevitable that a lot of other junk gets picked up and then promptly forgotten. That is, until there comes a time when they can’t use their usual items, due to them being stolen, sundered, or simply not on hand at the moment. In such instances, the canny adventurer has nothing to fall back on but his wits and a collection of “junk” that just might make the difference between life and death. Five such items are presented below. Ten-foot pole A classic adventuring tool, the ten-foot pole is usually used to measure distances and prod objects without getting near them. When using the ten-foot pole to press things perpendicular to the pole's orientation (e.g. pressing its end against the floor while holding it horizontally), the pole can exert a maximum of 10% of the wielder's total weight (e.g. a 200 lbs. man using the pole to test for pressure plate traps can press the pole against the ground with a maximum of 20 lbs. worth of weight in an attempt to trigger traps). A ten-foot pole can be used for combat, but is not balanced correctly, and counts as an improvised two-handed weapon (thus imparting a -4 nonproficiency penalty to attack rolls), and cannot be used to attack adjacent creatures. It is otherwise the same as a quarterstaff (including being usable as a special monk weapon), save that it cannot be wielded in one hand. A ten-foot pole weights 8 lbs., has 5 hardness and 10 hit points, and costs 2 sp.

P a g e  | 43   

Flour Usually used in cooking, flour has often been put to other uses by enterprising adventurers, to the point where it is now on the standard list of adventuring equipment. Sold in 1-pound bags for 1 cp each, a bag of flour can be spread over a 10 foot square area; doing so makes the area count as very soft ground for the purposes of following tracks (see the Track feat). Enterprising adventurers may also use a bag of flour in response to invisible creatures, either by dumping it into an adjacent square (treat this as a melee attack against the square, which has AC 5; success automatically affects any creatures there) or by throwing it as a splash weapon. A creature hit by the bag of flour or its splash effect takes no damage, but invisible creatures are outlined, causing them to have concealment, rather than total concealment. Flour may be washed off as a full-round action (that provokes an attack of opportunity) with a gallon of water or some other liquid. Marbles Small iron balls, a bag of marbles weighs 2 lbs. and costs 2 gp. Marbles may be spread over a 5 foot square to attempt to cause someone to fall. Anyone moving through a space with marbles must make a DC 15 Balance check, or fall prone; falling this way also ends a creature's move for their turn. A character that is running when moving through a square with marbles takes a -4 penalty to this check. Standing back up in a space with marbles requires a successful DC 15 Balance check, or the character remains prone. A character may move safely through a square with marbles, but doing so requires them to move at half movement.

Glass shards Glass shards can be used as makeshift caltrops; in this case, they function only against creatures which are barefoot (or in slippers or similar light footwear) and have a natural armor bonus of +1 or less. A character may make a DC 12 Listen check to hear someone stepping on glass shards. A typical broken bottle provides enough glass shards to cover one 5 foot square. Iron Spikes Iron spikes are typically driven into the ground in front of a door to keep it in an open or closed position. Doing so is a fullround action that provokes an attack of opportunity. A "spiked door" cannot be opened or closed normally, though it may still be broken down or destroyed. Spiking a door defeats an open/close spell, but not a knock or arcane lock spell, which uproot the iron spike as part of their effects. Removing an iron spike takes 1 full round, and provokes an attack of opportunity. Iron spikes may be used as improvised light weapons, doing 1d4 damage. An iron spike weighs 1 lb., has 10 hardness and 30 hit points, and costs 5 sp.

Puzzles 
In September, Greywulf posted an article about Suduko dungeons and I wondered if its possible to pull up some logic puzzles and adapt them to puzzles for adventurers to solve in the dungeon. On the Road Four merchant wagons (coloured blue, green, red and white respectively) left Highport to deliver supplies to the surrounding villages (Browton, Ferian, Heathford and Wavefront). The merchant wagons are being driven by Broden, Cyric, Danval and Matthias. The owner of the merchant company has found out that the medicinal supplies carried by Matthias has been poisoned by a local assassin's guide. That wagon must be stopped from reaching its destination, unfortunately the assassins stole the shipping manifest this morning after the wagons left so the owner has no idea who went where. Diplomacy checks (DC 15) around the shipping station reveals the following clues:

Ferian is not the village due east of Highport.

At the Theatre Last year, during the local three day theater festival, one of the performances (a comedy) was disrupted by a drunken couple. This year the festival director wants to ban that couple from attending the festival but he's having trouble remembering who disrupted the performance and what night it was on. He's got a list of six suspects (Adom, Christoff, Daniel, Jacqueline, Karia, and Sophina) and remembers that three were three types of performances (Tragedy, History and Comedy) across three nights.

Broden's red wagon took him in a direction at right angles to the road to Browton. The white wagon did not go to Wavefront. The green wagon, which headed south with its load was not driven by Matthias. Danval delivered his load already to Heathford, which is in the direction directly opposite to the way that the blue wagon traveled. Cyric drove north with his fullyladen wagon.

Redbox Hack 2 
A new class for Eric Provost’s Redbox Hack 2. Check it out for free download on the blog or read it in wiki form. The Grim is Chris’s second attempt at creating an interesting warrior class for RBH 2. He’s a stern and battered mercenary who has seen too many battles and ambushes to hold much hope for mankind. Please download a nicely-formatted PDF of the class.

This allows you to Show Off out of combat, keeping the awesome points until you next enter combat. Whether you Showing Off was successful or unsuccessful, you cannot use Battle Stories again until after the next combat.
Trophy 

When you face and triumph over a danger, you may keep a trophy to remind you of it. You may carry up to three trophies. When you choose, you may discard the trophy to get a +2 bonus to your next roll.
The Smell of Magic 

The Grim 
You are either still serving or recently retired from the mercenary company the Grim Patrol. During your time with them you have looted haunted temples, slaughtered knights and orcs, seduced barmaids and learned the world is a grimy and unpleasant place.

Though never formally educated, you have over the years become accustomed to sorcery and strange sights. You have experience with magical beasts, eldritch phenomenon and magic items – experience which tells you to avoid these things like the plague. When magic is being done, you can smell and taste it on the air.
Lusty Lover 

Limitation: Embittered
You are a simple soul who wants to settle down in the countryside with a homely, loving wife. You prefer simple plans to complicated ones and pragmatism to enthusiasm and are reluctant to get caught up in grand projects or righteous quests.

Talents
Rain of Blows 

If you are a man, women are drawn to your lattice of scars, broken nose and eyepatch. If a woman, men are equally engrossed by your peg-leg, scarred lip and missing ear. Members of the opposite sex will be happy to ignore the incriminating blood on your hands, let you into the wine cellar or serve as your henchmen when you next dungeoncrawl.
Tactics 

Once in a combat, you can make an attack against every creature in one arena.
Battle Stories 

You can regal your traveling companions with stories of past victories and defeats.

If you were an officer in the Grim Patrol, you are well acquainted with warcraft. If you were a soldier, you know the best tactic is to do whatever your officer wouldn’t have done. You can Show Off by giving orders. The awesome points you get can be spent to

P a g e  | 46   

swap the positions of two characters (allies or enemies) in adjacent arenas, to allow one ally late in the initiative order to act at the same time as another ally or to allow an ally to reroll his or her latest roll.

The Haunt 
You are a swamp dweller, a vagrant or a tramp who can speak with and summon the spirits of the dead and the damned.

Redbox Hack 2 
Eric Provost wanted to hack the Redbox version of Dungeons & Dragons into a game he felt more comfortable running and planning. Over the course of two editions and considerable fan insight, the result was an indie game which bore only a passing resemblance to D&D. It preserves races-asclasses, the ‘kill things and grow rich’ attitude and the balance between exploration and mayhem that made redbox D&D such a success three decades ago. Check it out for free download on the blog or read it in wiki form. A new class for Eric Provost’s Redbox Hack 2. The warrior of Redbox Hack 2 is a disappointment. Its companion, the stealthy longrunner, is a fresh take on the scoundrel archetype – skipping across the seas, drawing doorways with chalk and with a contact in every city. The warrior is just a warrior, what we have come to expect from thirty years of fantasy heartbreakers. I’ve attempted to fix this by writing up a set of new warrior-like classes. Each – hopefully – has a compelling hook in the setting and out-of-combat powers that create and solve problems. The Haunt is my first attempt. He’s a dabbler in ghosts and spectres, someone who dwells in dark fens and swamps. Please download a nicely-formatted PDF of the class.

Limitation: Heart of Gold 
Despite your heretical activities and your macabre appearance, you are a kindly soul. When confronted by injustice or hurt, like a lost child or a wounded animal, you must assist them.

Talents 

Jack O’Lantern
With a wicker basket, you have no need for light from a Jack O’Lantern. Instead, the pumpkin-headed and candle-eyed scarecrow is a sentry, spy and messenger who communicates with you by whispering messages on the wind. Some Jack O’Lanterns are granted movement by their creator; they have an unfortunate habit of becoming distracted by beautiful maidens, frightening travelers and hunting for buried treasure. A Jack O’Lantern whose Haunt has died may sometimes pull itself up from the ground and bestow movement upon itself as it hops down the road.

Wicker Basket
You can trap the souls of the dying in a wicker basket you carry on your belt or at the end of a walking stick. Only three souls will remain in the basket at one time and they sometimes fight or connive depending on their personalities. They will answer questions if threatened by cats – which all ghosts hate – or the smell of burning witchwood. If the wicker basket is shaped as a lantern, they souls release witchlight which reveals that which is hidden

P a g e  | 47   

The Gravedigger’s Pet
You summon a child who died before his or her time to walk as a ghost by your side. The child has no material form, but may choose to Assist you in combat (essentially a free action rolling your Stubbornness rather than your Alertness). It is your responsibility to care for the child and bring him or her to peace.

Scribbler Notes:  Reinventing the  Wheel 
When Reality Deviants Publications was writing Planetouched Feats V.1 - Secrets of the Inner Planes, we quickly ran into a wall. Checking the system reference document we found no listings for the outer planes. This was very frustrating from a design standpoint. Many of the names for the traditional outer planes come from mytical or literature sources but the essence of those planes as we knew them is not open content. Looking around for other sources, only a handful of companies have released planar material but many have obfuscated or crippled declarations preventing others from sharing the material or building on the existing concepts. After much debate and deliberation, we decided we wanted to try to reinvent the wheel. Reinventing the Wheel is intended to be a series of pdf supplements each detailing one of the major alignment based outer planes. Initially, we have decided to focus on the outer planes as no open game content can be found for it in the system reference document. In planning for this series we decided to set-up the cosmology with thirteen major planes for the alignments with a couple other planes that hopefully will fill a creative niche if not alignment. In Development: (Absolute Law) The Clockwork Perfection of Regulus (Absolute Chaos) The Everchanging Realms of Archanus (Absolute Evil) The Eternal Pit of Hell (Absolute Good) The Radiant Glory of

Hunter’s Look
An animal that or person who meets your gaze cannot move or look away until you close or the gaze is broken.

Sandman’s Burden
You bring with you a feeling of somnolence and languidness that lures others into a false sense of security. Where it is obvious from the fiction that you have surprised your foes, you automatically win Initiative. If it is not obvious, you still get a +5 bonus to your Alertness roll to determine initiative. Out of combat, you can sprinkle sand into a creature's eyes to put it into a deep sleep.

Strike the Shadow
If your opponent casts a shadow, you can scuff it with your boot or pull parts of it away. Your attack treats your enemy as unarmoured but you must attack unarmed. Out of combat, you can read people based on the body language of their shadow, a being that cannot lie.

The Steadfast Spires of Titanos: 1st Layer
Brilliant silvery spires stab into the artificially lighted skyline… The topmost layer of Regulus, towers above all the other layers that lie further along the central spire. Many believe that the Soul of the Machines’ inner chambers are located at this end of the spire and as such Titanos is thought to be the closest thing Regulus has to a perfect world. Inevitables walk the landscape of Titanos overseeing the perfection and maintenance of order. From Titanos, there are shuttle tubes that can take travelers up to Huge size to any of the other layers. The layer of Titanos is the only layer with a known portal to the principal axle where the Soul of the Machine resides. The inevitables of Regulus as tasked with the lawful administration of justice across the entire plane. From the Halls of Justice, the inevitables hold court for all those accused of crimes within the plane. Having little understand of inferior non-mechanical existances, typical humanoid crimes of rape, murder or theft often result in fines or community service while the more serious crimes of property destruction, sabotage and littering are capital offenses. Those convicted of capital offenses are often recycled (see Recycling Plant p.XX).

Introduction to Regulus
Tick, tick, tick… the regular rhythm of this plane can really get to you after a time… The Clockwork Perfection of Regulus sits as a shining example in a multiverse filled with chaos. Seemingly infinite in size the landscape extends outward to eternity in all directions, in an endless maze of cogs, gears, springs, levers, and grates. The entire landscape of Regulus is composed of metal and metal alloys, with the type and proportion of metal changing you tour any of its layers.

Organization of Regulus
Regulus is an artificial plane of existence that was first formed millennia ago to suit the needs and vision of the Soul of the Machine. Regulus is organized into eight layers shaped like large cogs, each rotates a central shaft of platinum known as the primary axle. Each cog is composed primarily of a single metal with other metals alloys complementing and The Principal Axle of Platina: 0th Layer The Steadfast Spires of Titanos: 1st Layer The Heavenly Halls of Argentium: 2nd Layer

P a g e  | 49   

The Heavy Hopes of Plumbum: 7th Layer
Heavy grey walls stretch endlessly in this maze of interlocking hallways and airlocks… This layer of Regulus is the slowest turning of all its cogs.

Chaosrot weakens the metal of the plane, slowly picking away at the metal’s essence until it is converted completely into chaos energy. This conversion of technetium into chaos energy forces the regulun works to replace each and every piece of the layer once every 61 days. The reguluns do not fair any better, the chaosrot weakens their orderly resolve and provokes a madness within them. This madness leads them to rampage through the plane destroying all they come across (see Chaosrot template). «Begin Box» Where does chaosrot stem from? Eritarin Versai, planar scholar, suggested in his Treatise on a Clockwork Multiverse, that the layer of Technetos in its eternal rotation around the principle axle becomes coterminus at several points with the Everchanging Realms of Archanus, once every 61 days for 61 seconds. Other planar scholars dispute this suggestion because that pure elemental chaos is unlikely to act on such a regular schedule. «End Box» Technetos Dwarves (Fix) There are psionic dwarves who were drawn from the material plane long ago by the Soul of the Machine to construct a perfect world. From their guildhouse on the layer of Technetos they make raids into the Celestial Order of the Hive for materials to maintain the plane of Regulus.

The Crumblining Columns of Technetos: 8th Layer
Adjusted Planar Traits: Silvery-grey columns spring from this cog layer at unnatural angles. Much of the ground is littered with debris. Broken and rusted metal fill the landscape for as far as the eye can see… The bulk of the eight layer of Regulus is composed of a silvery-grey metal call technetium. This layer is the least stable and orderly of all the layers of Regulus. The reguluns active on this layer of the plane, are most occupied with simply holding the layer together and attempting to secure it to Plumbum with reinforced columns. Walking through Technetos is a hazardous affair as sharp, broken and rusty debris cover what is considered the floor (see Technetos Floor in the Hazards section). Being the final cog layer on the principle axis, Technetos is layer that most closely nears the outer edge of Archanus, the everchanging realms. The proximity of Chaos to this layer has a disruptive influence on both the landscape of Technetos and its inhabitants. This phenomena of chaotic disruption is known to the inhabitants of the realm as chasorot.

Villain Profile 
Echelon‐X  David Wallis was an employee at the signals intelligence project where he was employed as data processer. He was based out of the unconfirmed facility at Canadian Forces Station Leitrim, Ontario. In 2007, terrorist agents of "Les Habitantes” detonated a dirty bomb at the site. The radiation caused an electrical cascade through the equipment that Wallis was using. The resulting electrical explosion erased David’s personality and memories like a degaussed video tape and infused him with new powers over electricity. Recovered by agents of “Les Habitantes”, David was rechristened as Echelon-X, a super-powered agent of terror.

Noble Penguin  Best known for their cheerful disposition, noble penguins thrive in one of the bleakest environments in the world. Perhaps because living in such stark conditions requires an optimistic mindset for survival, noble penguins always find the bright side in any situation. This makes them among the most gregarious noble animals, able to get along with virtually anyone. In the choice between serving or challenging humanoids, noble penguins near-universally choose to serve. Or rather, they would, but they rarely find themselves in a position to do so, simply because most humanoids don’t live in the climes that penguins call home. For those who brave the cold though, there is no truer friend than a noble penguin. Noble Animal Species Traits

It's a sourcebook for playing a sentient animal PC in 3.5, and I really get a kick out of it.

New Races
A Word about Races The only major changes to using races in conjunction with backgrounds are that a character that chooses to select a race does not choose a background. If a character wishes to choose a background, then he does not choose a race. Races are defined by: ability adjustments, racial traits and racial feats. Ability adjustments are bonuses and penalties to ability scores. Racial traits are any other miscellaneous bonus. This might be a small bonus to movement rate, a skill bonus or ranks in a skill. Racial feats are feats that a character can take no matter his class. For example a character of the Powerhouse class could select a racial feat found on the Brainiac list.

P a g e  | 57   

You must meet all other requirements for a racial feat. For example, if the prerequisite for a feat was Powerhouse 4th level, you could take the feat provided you had four character levels in any combination of classes. Bat-Winged Bimbos

In that time, Caliarn, was the greatest of all fey with magical powers that are said to have rival that of the gods who shaped the world. Caliarn was respectful of the gods and their works but when he began to teach others the magic he had learn the gods cursed him, turning his body to stone and sinking it beneath the earth. He fought back, crawling his way to the surface but never manage to break more than a few fingers free of his earthen prison. The so-called fairy chimneys are the fingers of this cursed ancient fey. The Fairy Fingers rise from the ground like a ring of stone towers that rise 60 ft. into the air. The towers rise and fall slowly changing in height by three to five feet a day and can

shift laterally up to five feet as the imprisoned fey struggles toward freedom. So powerful is the gods’ curse that the land around the Fairy Fingers never appears rippled or disturbed and if not for careful observation their movement may not have been noticed at all. On the fourth day or the fourth month, all magic of enchanment, illusion or transmutation schools is extended when cast from within the Fairy Fingers. Effects Caliarn’s magic still resonates strongly with this site. Animals and magical beasts within 5 miles of this wellspring are able to cast on 0th level spell at-will of the enchantment, illusion or transmutation school. If gain the ability to speak Sylvan while in this radius and if they possess an Intelligence bonus they may possess one additional cantrip per point of intelligence bonus. Additionally hidden amongst the many fingers is a simple wooden door that can lead a traveller to the Plane of Dreams or the Vault of Stars or the Questing Grounds.

Something Stinks Beneath Lanonshire
Room 1: The Side Tunnel (EL 1, 400 XP) The grey stone of the sewer is slick with water and the growth of slime molds. From the west wall, a corroded copper pipe vomits run off, kitchen waste and effluent from a society that abhors all that it flushes away. To the north, two tunnels stretch outward toward dual pools. To the east the sewer line runs down the middle of the room like a hallway of shame. After forty of so feat the tunnel turns north. This area is not regularly used by the ratters. Like much of the sewer it is infested with vermin and if the party stays in this are more than a single round they are liable to be attack by three dire rats (hp 5, see below). The dire rats collect no treasure but there is a 10% that a small piece of jewelery worth 50 gp could have fallen into the sewer

The save DC is Constitution-based. Room 2: Early Warning (EL 2, 600 XP) The ratters are aware that curious adventurers often cause problems in areas that are not their concern so they have place a trap to discourage adventurers from coming further into the tunnels at this location. On the south side of the hallway is a canvas bag. The bag is a magical trap that ensnares its victims and thrusts him into mortal combat.

If the character fails the save vs. entangle they are trapped alone in the bag for 3 rounds to fight the dire rat, but if they make the save the dire rat instead spills out of the bag. At the bottom of the bag is a silvered dagger (lost by an unlucky adventurer). Room 3 - The Long Tunnel (EL 3 or 0, 800 XP) The sewer tunnel turns sharply north at the corner here. Around the corner the sewer water flows stretches sixty feet forward through a large well lit area. The running water is accompanied by the hiss of air being forced through pipes. The walkway on either side of the sewer groove is slick with moisture and moss and along the walls are a number of alcoves that are filled with skeletons. The skeletons are all that remains for ratters that have fallen in their war against the surface dwellers. These skeletons are just placed to frighten of investigators who may fear the undead. However if the characters triggered the alarm in area two then a pair of ghost ratters will be hidden within two of the alcoves (DM's choice) and with seek to surprise and kill or drive off adventurers who may ruin the grand plan. Treasure In general the characters will be able to locate 2d12 silver pieces or a ring worth (25 gold) among the skeletal remains. If the ghost ratters are present they will have small purses on them that carry silvered weapons, a potion of cure light wounds, two thunderstones, and a collection of gold.

Fighting amidst skeletons they gain a +2 circumstance bonus to attack rolls on the first round of combat. Ghost ratters are ratters whose outer-skin and innards are transparent except for their bones. They appear to be animated skeletons and use this perception to catch adventurers off guard. Like most ratters they carry silvered weapons, ever wary of the possible infiltration of their band by wererats. What is the difference! I've seen this come up lately in discussions. What makes a humanoid a monstrous humanoid instead of a regular humanoid. For me the answer simply comes down to racial abilities. If your creation has a natural armor bonus or natural attacks (claw, bite) then I place them as a monstrous humanoid. They are more monster than man. So

Lizardmen in my mind are monstrous humanoids, as are dromites and ratters. Room 4 - Flushing Tanks (EL 4, 1,200 XP) Ahead of you sits a long oval tank. The liquid is blackish and filled with effluent. The surface undulates gentle as if something great thing stills the fluid below the surface. There appears to be no way across the tank besides jumping the 10 ft. across and only then is there a 5 ft. landing before a second tank cuts acros your passage. Ahead of the two tanks you can just make out a large lighted-room. Beneath the surface of this flushing tank is a very satisfied amphibious otyugh. Rarely does the otyugh need anything beyond what naturally flushings into his tanks (they are connected beneath the surface and can move back and forth between them as he pleases). If someone seems particularly tasty (as someone dripping blood into the water) he may make a pass at grabbing them.

Crypt of the Sand King (10th level)

The Sand King was once a primitive human called Dzon Olkman. This savage barbarian terrorized the southern wastes and would have been only remembered as a local warlord until he freed the Bringer of Curses. Upon forging a covenant with this dread power Dzon began along the path of immortality. His ascension would have been assured had Dzon not grown greedy for power and struck a deal with Salurna, the Lich Queen. Determined to punish his supplicant the Bringer of Curses weaked Dzon’s body and allowed his opponents to kill him. They took his body and sealed it in a crypt filled with guardians and traps. Salurna whispered to the men still loyal to Dzon, telling them that the Sand King had been reborn but was trapped. They tried to free him but have always been repulsed by the guardians of the tomb. So they came up with a new plan. Con some tomb raiders or adventurers to set him free. They will attempt to do this by:

P a g e  | 62   

A) Spreading rumours of great magical treasures hidden within the crypt Or B) Spin a tale of the evil Sand King rising from the dead and opening a portal to the Negative plane to pull undead legions from the Boneyard. Room 1: Guardians of Stone (EL 9) The entrance to the crypt is overgrown by bunches of creosote bush that struggle to conceal and clog the entrance to this mound. Sand from the desert pools inward onto the red and orange stone floor, and the hallway is unadorned except for two large columns along the west well. These towering supports are made from white and green stone and are beautifully sculpted to have the impression of a muscular, bald, and tall humanoid with two pairs of shining, whitefeathered wings embossed within it and wielding longswords. This room is the first line of defence to prevent intruders from waking the Sand King and bringing his evil back into the world. The two statues are large caryatid columns (CR 7 each) carved to appear as planetars (Knowledge (planes) DC 17 to recognize the form). The caryatid columns are instructed to attack anyone that enters the room that is not carrying the Mark of a Southern Defender and to prevent strangers from entering room 2. The caryatid columns have no treasure but one the base of the second statue is a square block covered in celestial script. This block is one of the four blocks necessary to open room 6. There is one exit south that leads outside and one west that leads to the chamber of second thoughts.

Room 2: The Chamber of Second  Thoughts (CR 10, 19,200 XP)  This large room is cut with deep lines that criss-cross and slither through the ceiling, floor and roof. The chamber is lit by four glowing yellow lights that float, rotate and spin about the room. The lines on the walls, ceiling and floor appear to be some sort of script but what was once pristine white marble is stained with blood The chamber of second thoughts is a large elaborate trap. The walls are covered with a celestial script that warms of the dangers of the Sand King reawakening as well as a command word to disable the mechanical trap. The walls, floor and ceiling is crisscross with many deep groves through with the blades of the trap can spring. In the center of the room is a locked chest (DC 30). Inside the chest is sandstone block with a celestial script upon its surface. This is one of the four stones needed to unlock room 6. The remaining stones are in rooms 1, 3 and 5.
The trap is a Chamber of Blades as described in  the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, except that it  can be disabled by a verbal command word and  it has an automatic reset that takes 3 rounds. It  is identical in all other ways.
