"Abbey of the Golden Sparrow" is the first in our line of “locale” supplements featuring information for players and Game Masters alike. Locales are places of interest that can be dropped into any fantasy campaign that help bring the setting to life for the already harried GM. "Abbey of the Golden Sparrow" is designed especially with an eye toward monk characters but there is no reason that another character class might not be living at or visiting the abbey (or make use of many of the new rules presented). No matter the class, players using this text will be able to give their characters that much more background which only enhances the roleplaying experience. Likewise, GMs will find plenty of plot hooks and adventure ideas that can occur either inside the abbey or outside, using the locale as a springboard for adventures nearby.

The supplement begins with a short narrative describing the typical life of an initiate at the abbey. This is followed by the locale’s physical description, history, two local myths, and sample doctrines. Then we get to the rules sections. New feats as well as new character traits are featured. Following these are a new special material (obsidian), three new magic items, and two signature NPCs of the abbey. In short, you get a grab bag of material that can be used together or separately without hindrance.

Compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!

17 pages of product isn't worth $5 of your money?

It takes hours to create content...a 4 page short story is pretty impressive from my point of view...

what would you expect to pay for 17 pages?


I wasn't going to comment on the "worthiness" in terms of the money because, really, every person's view is different. I will say that, sure, I could have cut the cost by not having a map or artwork but Pathfinder products deserve those extra trimmings. All comments are welcome, though, so thanks for those offered so far!

I appreciate you taking the time to review it. It really was alot of fun to write.


Another review for the Abbey has appeared over at OBS. Have a look!


New review for Abbey over at Robot Viking!

I think that cost vs value is a big concern with 3pp.

Now, without having read this myself, I would be disappointed if I got this for $5 and almost 1/4 of it was short story, I'd be a little frustrated too.

But only if the rest of the content was not stellar.

Short stories in gaming material can be a nice touch. But it can also take up a lot of space that could have been spent on more flavor.

From what I've seen as a review so far, I think this would have been better suited as a $3 product.

But I think that including the short story as part of the "value" of the product is questionable at best.


Thanks for the review, End!

And, we hear you, gigglestick. The second locale release (the Favored of Skexxiz) is without short fiction, just pure content.

Thanks for reviewing this EZG and I'm glad you liked it. This was my last freelance project before starting my company and I really enjoyed doing it.

What a cool concept! I'll certainly check this out when funds are available. Also looking forward to future locales!

Monks never get enough love. If you like to play a monk, be sure to grab this baby.
