Witches' Brews & Potions

Witches' Brews & Potions

PDF. 9 pages. 1 cover, 1 title/contents page. Interestingly enough, no OGL.

The is largely a set of tables and various notes on brewing various items including potions, but nothing game-specific.

Given the randomness of the tables they work, but produce all sorts of strange results. Now sometimes this is great, but for a game like Pathfinder or d20 D&D there are very specific ingredients used. It would be good for an OSR-style game.

Since the material here is not really game-specific it would work for any sort of game really.

I could use this as a GM tool to get me started, but I tend to make potions that have very specific ingredients related to their effects.

The best use for me would be to use it to determine what any one particular witch has in her cupboards. Now that idea makes this product much more useful to me!

Echelon Reference Series: Witch Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) [BUNDLE]
Publisher: Echelon Game Design
by Timothy B. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 08/11/2022 09:27:40

Review of the combined book here: https://theotherside.timsbrannan.com/2022/08/100-days-of-halloween-echelon-reference.html

This bundle is designed for people that want all of the spells, but want them split up my level into seperate books.

This compiled collection covers both spells from various Pathfinder products and the 3rd Party Pathfinder products. There is no fluff. Very little art. Here is how each book breaks down. There is a cover page, and OGL statement of Open Content page, a table of contents, and two pages on what this book is. For the Pathfinder book there is three pages of OGL. For the 3rd Party book there are seven pages for the OGL. There is a hyperlinked index for both and hyperlinked table of contents.

The rest is solid text of spells.

And by spells. I mean every single witch spell ever published by the date of this book. The 3rd Party book for example has nearly 30 pages of cantrips, 50 pages of 1st level spells, 60 2nd level spells and so on.

The spells are given an editorial clean-up so that they all look similar and can flow well.

What these books lack (and were never trying to cover) is all the fluff or explanatory pieces that might go with the background of a spell. For example "Air Bubble" mentions a firearm can be loaded within an Air Bubble, but makes no attempt to explain anything more. This is perfectly within the scope of this product.

You might ask if you buy this does that get rid of the need to buy other Pathfinder spell books? I say no since there is nothing here but the spells. Other products often have the spells, explanatory notes, monsters, feats, and items that might go with them. These books are a fancy SRDs. Highly organized and very useful ones at that.

If you are like me this is a treasure trove.

Today I want to explore the amazing reference that is the Echelon Reference Series from Keith Davies. There are a bunch of these, but I am going to focus my attention on the witch.

Echelon Reference Series: Witch Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD)

2 PDFs. $33.99. 186 pages (PF) and 544 pages (3PP).

Yes. 730 pages total. This compiled collection covers both spells from various Pathfinder products and the 3rd Party Pathfinder products. There is no fluff. Very little art.

For example "Air Bubble" mentions a firearm can be loaded within an Air Bubble, but makes no attempt to explain anything more. This is perfectly within the scope of this product.

The number of spells break down as follows:

Witch 3pp Cantrips: 123
1st level: 200
2nd level: 251
3rd level: 221
4th level: 188
5th level: 163
6th level: 142
7th level: 131
8th level: 122
9th level: 109 Total 1,650

Witch Prd Cantrips: 15
1st level: 83
2nd level: 107
3rd level: 88
4th level: 70
5th level: 51
6th level: 39
7th level: 40
8th level: 28
9th level: 22 Total 543

That's insane really.

He also has these per level and for every spell casting class in Pathfinder.

You might ask if you buy this does that get rid of the need to buy other Pathfinder spell books? I say no since there is nothing here but the spells. Other products often have the spells, explanatory notes, monsters, feats, and items that might go with them. These books are a fancy SRDs. Highly organized and very useful ones at that.

Revelations of the Dark Mother
Publisher: White Wolf
by Timothy B. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 08/10/2022 14:22:56

Time to get down with some OG World of Darkness. So much that has been written about Lilith in RPGs can be traced back to two sources. This is the first.

Revelations of the Dark Mother

PDF. 126 pages.

Once upon a time, White Wolf focused more on plot and background.

This is a crunch-lite, fluf-heavy book that deals with Lilith, the mother of all Vampires (so to speak), and maybe Mages as well in the original World of Darkness.

This is nice since I can drop it into any other game I like and it is a great background. If you have any interest in the subject of Lilith then this is a fun read.

This was written by Phil Brucato (with additional authors) who is pretty much the expert in everything Mage. So from the start you know this is going to be some deep WoD material.

The art is by Rebecca Guay, Eric Hotz, and Vince Locke with the covers designed by art director Aileen E. Miles. I call this out because the art in the book is really quite good. Even given that this is 20+ year old book. Every portrait or portrayal of Lilith is evocative. You captured in Lilith's tale in these and makes this more than just another game book. This book feels like a coffee table book (in the best possible way) that happens to be connected to a game world.

It is stunning and still a work of art all these years later.
