All of the above mentioned and...

*****

... the service provided by Radiance House and Paizo:
I bought numerous pdfs at Paizo, but so far this is the only pdf I receive updates for!

It's been several months since I purchased it and in the meantime I already received two info mails by Paizo which informed me that I could download updated versions of this fine product.

Really recommended for content, size, usability, and customer friendliness!

Cheers,
Günther

A good starting adventure

****( )

This was my first 3e adventure I DMed.

If you look for a wilderness adventure and a plot with good opportunities for continuing adventures, you will certainly like it. The adventure should require only minor modifications for 3.5e.

It's a classic by now, a good purchase for the clearance sale price of 2$$.


Nice Dungeon Magazine Classics

****( )

This adventure collection brings back some fond memories of past D&D evenings with my first D&D groups - I even kept on using it during the first days of 3rd edition when good new adventures were scarce and my budget low. ;-)

The collection contains low level adventures which means: ideal for starting parties. A lot of campaigns of mine originated in one of the adventures of this collection.

The conversion effort is quite low - due to the low level structure of the adventures.
Give it a try!

The best and only african d20 setting

*****

If you look for an african inspired setting (i.e. non egyptian!), you don't have to look any further.

After its publication very soon a big fan community sprang up. Even though the fan site www.nyambe.com doesn't seem to exist any more, there is still a lot of material which can be found on Atlas Games' site here and on other fan and campaign journal sites like this one here.

Comparing Nyambe to other real world inspired settings, one thing is apparent: In this setting not only classes and arms are re-named, they are re-envisioned! The actual game play mechanisms are modified to provide "african feel".

To put it more bluntly: PF adventures playing in african inspired regions like W2: River into Darkness will not see play in my campaigns without some major Nyambe adaptions.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book for all african inspired campaigns.

The monster book easiest to use!

****( )

It is sad that many of my most often used d20 books just make a prominent appearance now - in the late days of 3.5e. On the other hand this is your great opportunity to now purchase some really good (but expensive) 3.5 books to use in your upcoming PF RPG campaign and still enjoy for many years to come (for a fragment of the original price!).

This book is a hefty tome of monsters: On 366 (!) perfectly bound hard cover pages more than 200 monsters and templates are presented. Apart from my print out version of Necromancer Games' "Tome of Horror revised" this is the only monster book reaching this page count.

The layout is black and white only, but very neat to look at. The illustrations are inspiring, only the fonts used in the side columns might be a bit hard to read for some eyes.

The monster quality ranges from the wildly exotic and rarely used, over "mundane" variations on existing creatures (e.g. War Dragon, Millwork and various Jewel Golems) to some really interesting new concepts like dream creatures ("dreamkind" who enter a PC's dream and cause quite some havoc there). Nice for variation in campaigns is that many monsters come in "monster families" like above mentioned jewel golems, the dream kind, but also the terra-cotta army or the elemental atoms. My favourites as in most alternative monster books are those monsters whose concept and name already inspire an adventure (e.g. dark advocate, cellar dweller).

The book doesn't rely on evocative names for creating adventure names, though. Each monster description contains adventure seeds.

Additionally Fantasy Bestiary has one feature that clearly sets it apart from other monster books. The introduction of "concept icons".
