A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM’s Resource by Brian Wiborg Monster

Set among the ancient ruins of a fallen empire and standing on a bare escarpment overlooking the so-called Twilight Jungle, Fanghome is a relatively peaceful troglodyte settlement. Fanghome’s prosperity is built upon the Zji-Zji berry which the troglodytes have learnt, after a fashion, to cultivate and which they sell to those visitors brave enough to enter their fetid home. Not all is peaceful, however, in Fanghome for the troglodytes are an ancient race that once worshipped ancient, fell powers. Once such power has recently taken notice of the troglodytes and has begun to whisper dark dreams of power and conquest into the ear of its newest worshipper.

Subterranean Enclaves are short, richly detailed supplements that each present a single subterranean settlement ready to insert into almost any home campaign. Perfect for use as a waystop on the road to adventure or as an adventure site themselves, Subterranean Enclaves present the details so the busy GM can focus on crafting exciting, compelling adventures.

*****

The third installment of Raging Swan Press' Subterranean Enclave-series clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look!

Situated at the edge of the subterranean jungles of twilight flora and fungi, erected atop the last remnants of a civilization long perished and amidst the bones of ancient beasts, the troglodyte enclave of Fanghome makes for an uncommon place to visit - and probably, the reason to visit these disgustingly smelly lizards would probably be their trade in the enigmatic Zji Zji berries - sought after by drow fleshcasters and strange other traditions of the underworld.

Beyond racially-distinct places like spawning pools and the enigmatic Orb of Sithrak that hosts the eco-system, the uncommon race, location and emphasis on trade make for interesting takes. Additionally, lore sections, rumors, events etc. add further hooks to the village's uniqueness of this place, even before delving into the potential for inner-tribal intrigue; And what about the chief's hut, the skull of this ancient beast? A vast array of options and iconic imagery can be found in this settlement's presentation, even before the fully statted fighter 4/cleric 3 included in the deal.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I noticed no glitches. Layout adheres to raging Swan Press' two-column b/w--standard, with superb cartography in b/w. As always, you can download player-friendly maps on Raging Swan's homepage. The pdf comes in two versions, one optimized for screen-use and one optimized for the printer, with both being fully bookmarked.

Brian Wiborg Mønster delivers in this little pdf chock-full of brilliant hooks: From a wholly iconic place, to a unique economy and the smart consideration for the needs of an inhuman race, this place is a great enclave to visit, breathing the spirit of early pulp in all the right ways - hinting, inspiring, without prescribing, all while delivering just enough to make this an astounding read. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval.

Endzeitgeist out.
