So What's The Hoard Like, Anyway?


Brand: Raging Swan Press

Format: PDF

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GMs Resource by Thomas King and Chad Perrin

Your PCs are deep in the dungeon and have just defeated a terrifying dragon! As they bandage their wounds, and ready their fallen friends bodies for return to the surface, they look around and ask So whats in the dragons hoard, anyway? At that point, unless the GM has prepared a detailed list of treasure the PCs get (possibly) literally tons of coins and some generic magic items.  (After all, most GMs have better things to do with their prep time than generate treasure descriptions for stuff the PCs will likely sell as soon as they get back to town).

So Whats the Hoard Like, Anyway? banishes these problems by providing a veritable hoard of 84 pre-generated, ready-to-use lists of highly detailed treasure hoards ready to insert into almost any GMs campaign. Usable with any monster (not just dragons - this is not an excuse to put more dragons in your dungeons) the lists are broken down by character level making it easy to choose an appropriate hoard.

So Whats the Hoard Like, Anyway? presents hoards appropriate for character levels 1-7.


[5 STARS] Endzeitgeist: This pdf does exactly what it promises and provides an impressive amount of hoards for your perusal, some even lacking the traditional coins - a claw stretched from molten stone with a star-sapphire inside is just one example of how cool the individual options can be. Indeed, many of the different hoards contain items that may well provide hooks for adventures to come. When all's said and done, I don't have any reason to complain, I was positively surprised by several of the hoards (garter-belts, baby!) and thus will settle for a definite recommendation with 5 stars and the endzeitgeist seal of approval - well done!

[9 out of 10] Lawrence @ Roleplayers Chronicle: This book rocks. While I love writing descriptions and noodling around with treasure, I certainly appreciate having someone else do the work for me. As I said, I hope they produce more of these books for higher levels, or even just books of descriptions of items. This is my second review of a Raging Swan product and I hope to have the opportunity to review many more.
