Review: DELVE!

Johnathan Bingham comes out swinging with his premiere issue of DELVE!  It weights in at 42 pages plus a cover so it can beat up any other zine out there.  It double the size of its closest competitor.  Let me state the obvious.  The art is fricking awesome.  I've always been one of Johnathan biggest fans, but I think this is his best work yet.  I love the cover, a sorta collage of what you'll find inside.  I would love to see a version of this picture colorized by Daisy.

DELVE! is an intense adventure that takes the players into a cross genre situation with your typical critters like undead, mages and big bugs, but there is a technological slant that really makes it different from the usual adventure.  While Johnathan is not known for his writing he will be after this.  This adventure well set up, laid out and written.  This adventure can probably be finished with one session, two on the outside.  But its packed.  He has a lot of cool details insert for you to make use of in your own campaign.  Along with the adventure is a substantial amount of new monsters, magic items and spells.

Why am I being vague?  Because I don't want to give anything away.  I want you to buy it.  You can buy it from Johnathan for five bucks (look for the drop down box on the right side) or get it on RPGNow on PDF.  I say go for the print. He'll only have a limited amount and isn't fun to have something some one else doesn't.

  1. Thanks for the review. After reading I immediately placed an order. Man, he really packed it in... and with cardstock cover. I gotta figure out how to do that!
