@tech66: Hansel and Gretel vs the Army of Darkness? Sounds like something I shouldn't mention to my niece. I'm glad to hear you like Companion III.


I LOVE Companion III!!!
Sanity + Witch-hunters/Inquisitors = Hansel and Gretel vs the Army of Darkness!!


Rachel: Whether they work or not will depend on the campaign. There are a heck of a lot of ideas in Companion III, which are diamond and which are just quartz is in the eye of the beholder. There are lots of ideas here that I would probably never use in any campaign I'd be likely to run, but would probably work just fine in other settings with other groups of players.

I a lot of ways, Companion III reminds me of many of the third party supplements that appeared in the late 1970s and early 1980s (and that comparatively few people ever saw), each bursting forth with new and wild stuff. Adding any of it to a campaign without thought could cause problems, but carefully selected (and sometimes modified) material could help made a campaign really good.

Looking back a lot of this stuff feels somehow… unpolished. This autumn I was a torrent of ideas, and I hope enough of them worked that it was worth the time.
