Two-Fisted Tales: The Definitive Pulp RPG
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/30/2006 00:00:00

Two-Fisted Tales is the best pulp action RPG, ever. This game has it all for the genre. The system seems to be built from the ground up to play pulp action. The combat system is deadly, so players must avoid combat or wait until they can get the drop on the villains, just like in the pulps. The system includes rules for weird science gadgets, magic, and even hypnotism. The rules for interacting with animals allow for the creation of characters like Tarzan or Sheena. Character creation is quick and easy, with templates for different character types provided, but each template can be customized easily, so any genre character you can imagine can be created.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: The Game Master's Guide chapter is an excellent treatment of the genre.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: A few brief adventures would be a welcome addition.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

HardNova 2 (Core PDF)
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/26/2006 00:00:00

Hard Nova ][ is an excellent set of rules for use in an excellent setting. The genreDiversion i rules are quite good and have been well adapted to the the space opera setting presented here. Hard Nova ][ is also well supported with a line of excellent products. These core rules allow you to play right away, with a number of scenarios included as well as a bunch of pre-generated characters and spacecraft. It really is ready to play "out of the box." The fact the characters and ships are almost 100% compatible with PIGames Impresa system is a big plus, too. As such, you have a fully developed magic system by using Iron Gauntlets.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: The scenarios and the pre-generated characters make it easy to get started. The compatibility with Impresa and Active Exploits Diceless are great, too.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I would have liked to have a few paper minis included, like they did with Iron Gauntlets. Some ship counters would be nice, too. The Hard Nova ][ Dispoable Heroes are excellent, and also available from PIGames.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Iron Gauntlets Core PDF
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/26/2006 00:00:00

Iron Gauntlets is what fantasy role playing should be. The Impresa system is excellent, and I'm already in the process of converting some of my existing campaigns to the Impresa system. Iron Gauntlets puts Impresa to good use. The use of vocations, flairs, and gimmicks is a great example of game design. The magic system is excellent; it's complete but also expandable. All the fantasy races are present in Iron Gauntlets, including centaurs. It's a great set of rules and I've begun to use it with my kids. I guess the best thing I can say is that my 8-year old has no trouble with the system, while at the same time, I find the rules have all the depth I require of a role-playing game.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: The added paper minis and map tiles were a nice touch to get my campaign started.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The artwork is of inconsistent quality and tone.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Disposable Heroes: Western Set 1
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/09/2006 00:00:00

This set features a fair number of classic old west types. The artwork is a bit cartoonish, but is very good. The ability to customize a set of figures for download from the PIG website is a definite plus which has saved me a great deal of ink and cardstock.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Customized layouts and labels available on line.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: There is no back artwork for the set. Silouette or mirror image are the only choices.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Disposable Heroes: Customizable Fantasy Collection
by Jacob L. L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/24/2006 00:00:00

More paper fig companies should take a lesson from PIG and offer customization within and/or across sets of figures!<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Customizability. Stand-Ups OR Tokens!<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Silhouette backgrounds or duplicate the front image on each side. I much prefer the full color artwork reverses.


If you want armies with each page repeating a single different figuire, its easy . . . unless you want tokens. Token armies can only be processed one image at a time, so in order to get all 120 figures I had to DL & rename 120 seperate files.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Disposable Heroes: Western Set 1
by Raistlin W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/02/2006 00:00:00

A neat system; the download contains instructions only, and you go to PIG's website to receive the actual product. The menu will display all of the miniatures with checkboxes; on your first trip you select Print All, and subsequently can go back and print sheets of single miniatures or a small assortment, pre-numbered so you can tell them apart.


How do they compare to Pinnacle's Cardstock Cowboys? Well, there's slightly less variety, but the ability to print full pages of any one miniature without messing around with graphic fonts is a good one. Cardstock Cowboys give you a greater variety of different choices for each character type, but you're paying for a lot of Deadlands-specific stuff and the pages aren't customizable.


In the end, I would say that if you are running a Western RPG you want the Cardstock Cowboys, so your players have a better chance of finding distinctive pieces to represent themselves. But for a minis game, definitely go with the Disposable Heroes for their printing flexibility.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: The artwork looks unimpressive on the website. Be patient and download the actual miniatures; they look like Disney cowboys, very well-drawn and realistic but still cartoony. They're perfect for any but the most grim Western games.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: It's not a huge disadvantage, but you have to be online to get customized miniatures pages. That's slightly inconvenient. More to the point, though, it's a relatively small set without that much variety. You have one or two of each cowboy archetype and that's it.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Thank you for your feedback, but you misunderstand the purpose of this set - it is a western set, not a cowboy set. There is more to the west than just cowboys, and you're paying half the price of the Pinnacle products.

The Chronicles of Amherth
by Christopher B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/02/2006 00:00:00

The Chronicles of Amherth


A Setting for the Iron Gauntlets game.


I was hesitant to buy this for Iron Gauntlet as the page count was low for a setting. I was pleasantly suprised to see that it covered everything I needed without getting into too detailed specifics about the world and the way things work. Enough information is given to give any GM a starting point to work from and allows lots of elbow room to make it your own.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Concise and full of the information you need and less of the information you don't.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Maybe better maps and another adventure if I had to come up with anything.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

by Christopher B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/02/2006 00:00:00

Unorthodox Druids for Iron Gauntlets


In this PDF you get 5 druid based Vocations for use with Iron Gauntlets. There are also two new magical abilities Umbre and Timbre detailed and expanded on further than what was listed in Unorthodox Barbarians.

This is a great buy if only for the gimmicks, but it also adds the 5 new vocations.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: New Vocations and gimmicks.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Nothing that I can think of.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Atomik Alienz
by Daryl D. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/21/2006 00:00:00

v. cool. in particular the fact that the design layout can be adapted easily to any RPG that you are using!<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: gives you an excellent feeling for behavioral characteristics of a designed alien, her homeworld, her care/feeding, etc, all in one smooth and powerful, and well-researched source.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: A tad too WAY out overall, right off the science to the fantasy end of things...also, fair amount of mispellings, bad homonyms can be discouraging.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

The product offers a good alternative view of Pulp gaming for those who have entered the genre through Hero, Adventure or other lines. I use it as additional inspiration for my d20 modern campaigns.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Fresh take on Pulp with some d20 insertable "house rules" capability.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
