 RPG Review: His Flesh Becomes My Key (2017)

 RPG Review: Stairway of Vdreen (2017)    
Capsule Review by Tim Bannock (5/3): Continuing to support the in-house Crimson Dragon Slayer system, Kort'thalis releases Stairway of V'dreen, a sandbox adventure in a world that is steadily being erased as its erstwhile gods have moved on to other creations. Further embracing the zaniness of author Venger As'Nas Satanis' love for random tables, this adventure shines in creating a surprisingly consistent world whose erasure is prompted by a surprising — and self-effacing — twist that the PCs can directly interact with during the Paranoia-esque conclusion. Though it's clearly a beer-and-pretzels, "jump in fast and see how quickly things get crazy" style of adventure, there's a surprising amount of depth to be uncovered.

 RPG Review: Head Shot! (2016)
