Review – The Manor, Issue 7

27 October, 2014

The Manor, Issue 7 is a short publication dedicated to the OSR (Old School) branch of fantasy roleplaying.  This issue contains the following articles:

  • Boltswitch’s Mobile Potion Emporium, a traveling seller of potions, all done through prose which is an interesting choice.
  • Skinwalker, a trickster/minor shapeshifter class based on the Native American view of Coyote.  Short and direct, my have a place in some campaigns.
  • Mirror, Mirror, a selection of rather potent magical mirrors.  While I would not use them as written, good inspiration.
  • Trouble in the Well, a short adventure for when you need something to fill time between largest adventures which is always useful.
  • Horrid Caves, a longer adventure exploring a cave network containing things from the distant past and ancient magics.  I had great fun running this adventure for my Pathfinder group.
  • Lastly, a Mindflayer Haiku and picture wraps this issue up, disturbing but amusing.

All in all, quite fun and full of tools for OSR (or other fantasy) games.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
