A Review of the Role Playing Game Supplement Knowledge Check: Thieves’ Cant Dictionary

Knowledge Check: Thieves’ Cant Dictionary by Richard D.

Free Role Playing Game Supplement Review: FA3 – Darkwood Forest

FA3 – Darkwood Forest is a free role playing game supplement published by Adventures in Filbar. It’s intended for use with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and AD&D 2nd Edition rules, but it should be compatible with most d20 systems with a little work. The FA series of supplements cover various non-urban encounter areas. This particular one covers another forest which, like FA2 – Springwood Forest, is located not that far from the Village of Tomore, the village being detailed in another supplement (both supplements also being available for free). Unlike the sylvan setting of Springwood Forest, Darkwood is, as the name suggests, rather more dangerous.

Free Role Playing Game Supplement Review: ‘The Cozy Hearth Inn’

‘The Cozy Hearth Inn’ by Scott Craven is a free role playing game supplement published by The Forge Studios. The supplement is covered by the d20 System Trademark License, although that license was revoked in 2008, so this should probably have been replaced with the Open Game License, and consequently the supplement is considered to be Open Game Content. It is designed to work with the d20 system and other compatible game systems, such as Pathfinder, and will probably work with most Old School Revival systems too.
