Great & amusing FREE product

5/5

This pdf is 8 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1page editorial/ToC and 1 page SRD, leaving 5 pages of content.

The pdf kicks off with an introduction to this pdf version of the great Quid Novi-newsletter (which I've been receiving for the better part of a year by now) and then goes on to the gaming material. Each section is prefaced by a cool, aptly-written short IC-text.

The pdf includes an affliction that is quite amusing: Boogie fever. We also get a cool leather gauntlet with positive energy abilities, a nice new haunt and of course: Penguins!

An encounter with an emperor penguin, penguins as animal companions, little penguins and a cool magical trap with... Penguins! We also get a nice new cantrip-spell for bards and a cool list of recommended reading.

Conclusion:
Layout adheres to the two-column standard and is printer-friendly b/w, editing and formatting are top-notch and I didn't notice any glitches. Content-wise, this issue walks the thin line between being funny and usable and succeeds at both. Due to the fact that the file is free, I can unanimously recommend the file: You literally have no reason not to download this and should in fact do so. My final verdict will be 5 stars.


You have no reason to not pick this up.

Quid Novi: Perilous Penguin Edition by Spes Magna Games

This product is 8 pages long. It starts with a cover, credits, and ToC. (2 pages)

Introduction (1 pages)
Explaining how this came about, what inspired the series and some of the stuff in this product.

Collection of things (4 page)
There is one new disease, one new magic item, one new haunt, a new animal Penguin, with 3 sets of stat blocks. One for the little ones, one for the Emperors and then information for one as a familiar. One new trap and one new spell. The section ends with half a page on suggested reading.

It ends with a OGL. (1 pages)

Closing thoughts. The art is black and white and good. Layout is decent and editing is all and all good. This is mostly a free showcase to show what the company Spes Magna can do. Up until now it was only as a email, now you can get it this one as a PDF. I must say I really like the PDF format and hope all future and honestly all the old ones eventually get turned into PDF's. It makes them much easier to store and use.

So what's my rating? I am going to give this one a 5 star review. I mean it is free stuff, that is well written, good editing and layout and decent art. There is no reason at all to not pick this up.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

And a delightful review it is, D_M. :)

Regarding your hopes for more Quid Novi? PDFs, I'm not sure. A lot of it has to do with time issues. It takes longer to format, et cetera, something for PDF than it does for an e-mail. I already find myself crunched for time too often. It is something I have considered, however. I can (and do sometimes) e-mail PDFs to Quid Novi? subscribers.

Still, it would be nice. I am working (sort of) on compiling past Quid Novi? monsters into a PDF. It won't be free since I am beefing up the monsters' descriptions (see the free baykok PDF for an example of what I'm working on), but it also won't sell for too much.

With all that said, anyone who gets the Perilous Penguin PDF and likes it, keep in mind that content like the PDF gets e-mailed to Quid Novi? subscribers for free about twice a month.

It ain't fancy, but the price is hard to beat. :)

Yeah I am on your email list. But to be honest I would rather get one a month and have it be a PDF than two that are not. As for a collection of previous ones for a fee in PDF format that works for me. I just find PDF's MUCH easier to use than a email.

I shall certainly give serious consideration to that idea. Fortunately, I have summer vacation coming up at the beginning of June. If I'm going to make this sort of change to Quid Novi?, summer time would be a good time to do it. :)


Also sent my review to GMS magazine and will mention it some time in the future on RPG aggression. :)
