Review Roundup June 20

It’s been another good week for reviews here at Raging Swan Press. As always, thank you to everyone who writes a review of one of our products (good or bad); I much appreciate the time and effort expended; your comments help us make out products even better.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the highlights:

GM’s Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing

Claus O, in his five-star review, said, “you could run entire campaigns just by using this book.”

Dwellers Amid Bones Collector’s Edition

Endzeitgeist raved, “FANFARE! GLORY TO WHATEVER DEITY OR FORCE MADE CREIGHTON WRITE THIS!” (The caps are his, not mine!)

GM’s Miscellany: Village Backdrops

Craig C said, “The sheer quantity & quality of orderly, eyeball-ergonomic idea lists and design guides are a GM’s dream.”

GM’s Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing

James Barnes (who gave a five-star review) said, “If you ever agonize about what to make the 5th room look like, or create a dungeon at the 11th hour pick this book up. If sometimes you need inspiration, pick this book up…”

Village Backdrop: Red Talon

Giving the village four stars, Endzeitgeist remarked, “Richard Green paints in vivid strokes a rather nasty pirate village of the worst kind, the kind of place that makes Freeport or Port Shaw look cosmopolitan or welcoming…”

Dark Oak Collector’s Edition

Drug-addled lizardfolk threaten the village of Thornhill in this 5th-level adventure

Beneath the fetid roots of a noisome swamp linger the pathetic remnants of a once proud and noble tribe. Laid low by a powerful narcotic administered by their ambitious (but wildly paranoid) mistress, the lizardfolk of the Dark Oak are but a shadow of their former greatness. Now, in the fetid caverns below the slumbering body of a diseased treant she plots to bring bloody slaughter to the folk of the nearby villages before her followers forget their proud heritage and sink into a lethargy from which there is no escape.
