Four Against the Abyss

In my opinion, this is the first supplement of Four Against Darkness that a player should buy, after picking up the basic game. I personally consider it essential, given how much it adds.

The process of turning your character into an Expert is well-laid out, fairly simple and definitely feels significant. And, of course, as the heroes grow in power, the challenges become more formidable.

The Expert Skills add a lot of customization to your character, fleshing out their style and abilities. I actually have a house rule that's worked very well in my own play: every character gains an Expert Skill at first level BUT, the tradeoff is that Bosses and Weird Monsters do not drop a level at half health. Certain monsters are more of a challenge but the heroes can leverage their skill throughout the campaign.

I liked most of the Expert Spells, with the minor exception of Lifeforce Control, which seems underwhelming in comparison to the others.

I'm also a fan of the rules for hiring Professionals and Hirelings- it's a new and useful way to spend your treasure between adventures and can be very useful to the party.

All in all, top marks!

This really is an excellent game. The system is simple but also very customizable- it's fairly easy to create new classes, new monsters and new spells with a bit of tinkering. I recommend checking out the supplements as well, especially "Four Against the Abyss," which offers options for higher level adventures.

I have thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and eagerly await the next supplement.

The concept for this is interesting- sort of a combination of the Elemental Fist Monk and the Warlock class. However, as it stands, the document is incomplete and needs significant proofreading.

As a fan of such shows as "Avatar the Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra," I encourage you to continue working on this.

However, I also strongly urge you to submit a finished product next time- or, at least, to state that it is unfinished in the description.

I'm sorry, my mistake! I'm gonna look for the finished document and put it up now. Sorry for the mistake, I hope you can redownload it if I replace it
Ok, the file is updated to the correct PDF. If you can't re-download it, I'll see if I can email it to you. Just a warning that I'll try to add to the listing - it's un-playtested, so I hope it isnt too OP

So, serindipitously, the party in my current campaign has been seeking out a series of shrines keyed to specific demon lords and the next one, slated for next session, was going to be Aldinach's.

Thank you! You've given me some great material to work with.
