Today on Tabletop Spotlight: Eldritch Lairs from Kobold Press, and Starship Decks from Paizo, check ’em out!

Join the Tabletop Spotlight crew as we go through the pages of Eldritch Lairs and the new Starship Decks from Paizo.

Eldritch Lairs is the latest supplement from Kobold Press, and it’s got what you need if you’re looking for Adventure. Kobold is one of the best 3rd Party d20 publishers out there–whether in their tomes of beasts or the cults and secret societies they delve into, Kobold does a fantastic job of honing in on the stories that bring adventure to the players.

And Eldritch Lairs is another fine addition to their catalogue, bringing Pathfinders a slew of dungeons to delve into. You’ll find complete adventures surrounding each of the dungeons–it’s reminiscent of the Tales from the Yawning Portal, only each of these delves is a unique set piece all its own. Featuring magic plagues and even a stealth dungeon, this is a great book for DMs and Players alike–even if you prefer to run your own adventures, there’s some fantastic design on display in this tome.

Then step into the future for some Starship Deck Map Tiles. Explore a variety of Starships from across the pact world’s with this new map pack. Although, funnily enough this is released as part of the Pathfinder Map Pack series, which makes sense because that’s the existing product line name. But it also seems suggestive of crashed ships in the Pathfinder world. Whether you’re playing science-fantasy or more traditional adventuring is your party’s particular idiom, this map pack is full of a fleet’s worth of tiles you can use to create your own custom starship layouts. You can also use these as a way to get your players to lay out “their” ship. That’s one of the best things about Starfinder, ships level up alongside the party. So this can really give your party ownership and a sense of their own ship.

These are both some great tools, so check them out!

Confront Evil in Its Den!

To seasoned adventurers, the doom-laden chanting of priests and the cackling of evil wizards can only mean one thing: deadly peril, and the chance for treasure! (Okay, those are two things.)

Eldritch Lairs brings you eight complete Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible adventures for 4th to 8th level player characters, set in the magic-blasted wastes, as well as dungeons and deserts. Take them into the dark depths of the earth, through the twisted alleys of a supernaturally plague stricken town, and beyond, to brave the dangers of:

  • A trap-laden lair that requires stealth and clever tactics to survive!
  • A labyrinthine mausoleum, where wormhearted invaders sow chaos and madness among the dead!
  • The schemes of a demon-cult of thieves and unscrupulous wizards!
  • An unstable magical artifact built in a ruined ley line conduit!
  • A flying palace seized by an army of gnoll bandits!

And much more! Eldritch Lairs offers ready-to-go adventures full of magic and horror for your game.
