Review – Thunderscape: The World of Aden Campaign Setting (for Pathfinder)

20 June, 2014

Thunderscape: the World of Aden Campaign Setting is an interesting book, obviously if you want to run a campaign set in the world of Aden this is a must buy item, but what if you are just a Pathfinder GM?  Well, in that case, it depends on how much use you think you will get out of the new races, classes and rules.  If you want to move your campaign in a more magical steampunk sort of direction, there are considerable tools to support that especially of you want to make vehicles more important to your game.  Want to have a corrupting evil that spawns twisted agents?  There are tools for that.  For me, the insect druid Entropomancer is almost enough reason alone to have the book, but not every campaign has a place for such a class.  But each GM will have to make the call for themself.

Thunderscape: the World of Aden Campaign Setting by Kyoudai Games for use with the Pathfinder RPG is based on the World of Aden used in the SSI computer game created by Shane Hensley and developed in both novels and source books.  This current version is written by Shawn Carman and Rich Wulf and was made possible by a Kickstarter.
