Shattered Moon
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/15/2017 17:52:28

So lets start off with this, in Shattered Moon creating a character creates a sense of investment. It's a detailed process requiring a bit more thought than just the average slap a character together and lets roll. I applaud this, one shoudl be invested from the beginning otherwise, what is the point of role-playing? I like the idea of an ever widening spiral adjusted by the tarot of fate. In a way it reminds me of Everway. there is definitely some ebb and flow in those cards as they are not balanced, this isn't a criticism by the way it's an observation. It's something I appreciate even as I grimace when I draw the "Child" giving me 4 FP to work with as a past life ... drawing cards and I highly encourage this as opposed to picking really makes you think about the character, who and what you want to be, it may not be what you originally envisioned.

If I have any criticism it is this, I'd honestly like to see this built more like another product from Broken Tower VANGUARD in so far as being more, race ... Troll - here take this card write this down, Weaver, here take this card write this down. The reason I say this is the dearth of information is vast and having those available would help in the beginning and it's nice to have a reference when needed. Last thing it is sometimes difficult to find what you are looking for when you need it but overall I am going to rate this 5 stars for originality and above average mechanics, I mean there's something here to fit every blll just about.

Creator Reply:
Thank you for the kind and generous review. And a big thank you for the constructive criticism. As we're currently working on the 2nd Ed. of Rogue Marshal (a.k.a. Ascendancy), using the FateStorm system, your comments are of great help. We'll look into producing the sort of 'crib notes' player handouts that VANGUARD makes use of. Thank you once again. Kind regards BrokenTower
VANGUARD RPG 'Varmisk Fallen' Core Rules

02/13/2016 Review of Vanguard RPG Varmisk Fallen:

Layout: The production quality of this rule book is Excellent, with creative use of colors and artwork shapes. The consistent use of the hexagon is a reminder that people paid attention to artistic layout, and it demonstrates that they actually gave a d---n about what they were doing.

Text: The writing is straightforward, which is something I like when I read a rulebook. Just enough fluff to keep me interested, but it gets to the point quickly, cleanly, and it's easy to understand the first time you read it.

Game Play: Although this game is geared for kids, seems to be aimed at young kids? It is a very specific and detailed game. This will take away from children being able to play it, though it does say to simplify things if you find them too detailed. It uses d6 dice, so having common dice is always a plus.

Story / Content: It is a fascinating take on science fiction meets woodland creature aliens, a concept that sounds stupid at first... but it sneaks up on you.

Worth the money? Just barely worth the cost, though I think a second edition is being published. I am not sure if the second edition is an update or a rewrite, be aware of that situation before you buy this edition. Otherwise: a little expensive for a first edition that may be out-of-date.
