Featuring material from some of Raging Swan Press’s newest products as well as classic releases of yesteryear, advice articles and material from Creighton’s on-going design of the megadungeon Gloamhold, the GM’s Monthly Miscellany series is a terrific free resource for the busy, time-crunched GM.

Endzeitgeist has given both version of I Loot the Minion’s Body a five star review! Here’s my favourite bit:

Kat Evans delivers big time in this cool, evocative supplement – which is difficult: After all, minions are pretty much defined by being the faceless legions. Any pdf managing to add depth to them with the roll of but a single die deserves applause in my book

Endzeigeist loves I Loot the Warrior’s Body! Here’s what he said in his five-star + seal of approval review:

I can count the number of pdfs that I did not consider excellent penned by Mike Welham on one hand. His prose is excellent, his imagination amazing. Boy, oh boy, this pdf pretty much shows how I came to hold him in such high regards: Not content with simply providing a diverse array of options full of flavor and different tones, he goes one step beyond, providing a ton of minor rules-operations within the little space available…operations which frankly made me crave a book of mundane/alchemical item tweaks. It\’s that good. The dressing is glorious, but adding these tidbits to it ultimately makes this stand-out further and marks it as excellence and my favorite installment in the series so far.

Whispers & Rumours: Borderland Town has just received a rather marvellous five-star + seal of approval review from Endzeitgeist. My favourite bit?

Neal Litherland’s collection of rumors, legends and events is amazing – the combination of local color, legends and events can result in truly inspiring environments or adventures. The respective entries are detailed and run the gamut from mundane to magical with panache aplomb.

Village Backdrop: Woodridge

Ruled over for centuries by the scheming, ambitious Lorsch family, Woodridge is little more than a backwater village standing on the eastern bounds of the Duchy of Ashlar. Standing astride an ancient, now little-used trade route the village is a poor, but seemingly peaceful place. Its folk tend their small fields, pay their lord his due and are content to be left in peace. But all is not as it seems. Spies lurk among the populace, and dark forces gather which would see Woodridge’s lord, Hilduin Lorsch, converted to their faith or dead.

1,000 Abnormal Wights

Much feared for their ability to drain a foe’s vital life force, wights are dangerous opponents. More cunning than mindless skeletons or zombies, they represent a clear threat to weak, incautious or distracted adventurers.

20 Minor Treasures to Recover After a Subterranean Battle

After a victorious battle in the dark subterranean world of the Ebon Realm, most adventurers inevitably rifle the pockets, packs or lair of their vanquished enemies. The treasures they might find in this stygian world are far-removed from those looted from their surface-dwelling enemies.
