An Endzeitgeist.com review


This installment of what I'd tentatively call the "new" Urban Dressing-series clocks in at 12 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let's take a look!

As has become the tradition with this rebooted series under the command of Josh Vogt, we begin with a massive table of sights and sounds to be found in a port town, one that is 100 entries strong: From wharves struck by recent cold snaps to ballistae drawn on carriages, the entries prove to be inspiring glimpses of local color.

Beyond that, 50 entries of sample businesses, from recruiters to fresh water supplies, maps and scuttlers await the patronage of PCs taking a stroll. Need some local people? 50 sample NPCs (fluff-only, with suggested alignment and class level in brackets) provide the DM with further fodder of various adventure hooks and detail...and if that is not enough, a table of 20 sample adventure hooks provide even more inspiring fodder - actually sporting some pretty interesting ideas.


Editing and formatting are top-notch, I noticed no glitches. Layout adheres to Raging Swan Press' 2-column b/w-standard and the artwork is thematically fitting b/w-stock. The pdf comes fully bookmarked and in two versions - one optimized for the printer and one optimized for screen-use.

I did not expect to like this UD - after all, author Josh Vogt has already covered Pirate Towns and I expected a significant overlap - well, surprisingly, this supplement has its very own identity and it is very much distinct from the installment on pirate towns, allowing for synergy nonetheless - quite a feat and worthy of 5 stars and my seal of approval.

Endzeitgeist out.
