Followers should be a DM thing ...

After (more than a bit of) debate, the Desparation Followers ability has been removed from the Fighter class. DMs should feel free to impose something like that on the players of high level characters, but the rules should not impose that upon the DMs …


The first preview release of the Athasian Rogue is up. Near future: Psychic Harbringers, and the Psionic classes.

Thri-Kreen, again

YATkT – Yet Another Thri-kreen Tweak. They’re medium now, do less claw damage, have a progressing poison DC and two or three other tweaks.

Psion Powers

A display of Psionic Powers, including power lists for the Psion and Psychic Warrior, has been added to the Unofficial section. Something similar will be added under DS3, once powers start getting selected for inclusion in DS3…

Bard, Redux

The bard has been updated with a new iteration of abilities. The poison-making rules will be presented as a part of a Craft(Poisonmaking) rule, to be posted at a later date.


As Brax points out, humans aren’t actually known for their tolerance. The flavortext for the humans has been updated to pull away from the rosy picture painted by DS2.

updated cleric

The Cleric has been updated. Of note, the weapon prohibitions have been lifted.

Updated Terrors ...

Version 1.1 of Terrors of the Dead Lands has been uploaded. This release incorporates changes that first appeared in the TotDL addendum, as well as some other alterations.
