(G-Core) Guardian Universe X: Tiger Force Team 3
by Katrina H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/10/2018 12:05:26

Guardian Universe X: Tiger Force Team 3 is the most recent addition to Jay Libby's expansive Guardian Universe setting. It is designed for use with G-Core, a great game on it's own, but can easily be translated to other super-hero style games.

Tiger Force Team 3 has a definite Iron Age Feel. It is, as the name says, the third in a series of group working of a powerful organization. They are coimprised of some flesh-and blood heroes along with some potent robotic agents. The artificial units are designed to support the non-robotic members and when acting in concert can make a formidable opponent for villains and heroes alike.

I like this product for it's overall 'feel' and Jay's interesting take on the robotic teammates. I like the the best of all the characters protrayed here.

G-Core) Guardian Universe X: Prime & the Misfits
by Katrina H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/06/2018 08:16:18

Prime & the Misfits is a book fo character profiles for G-Core. While it is set in the Guardian Universe X version of the setting, the information can easily be converted to any G-Core era or other similar game system.

This module doesn't contain a great amount of information about the setting, rather it consists of write-ups. The stats and backgrounds presented is a group of adventurers seeking to stop the galaxy-spanning Church of Eternal Life. It contains information on characters ranging from Mondo, a childlike powerhouse, to Psiggy the small but potent alien marital artist. There is a great deal of information about all the characters presented and enough detail that each could be used on their own as well as part of the team.

Two other G-Core books are recommended to get the most out of Prime & the Misfits; The Eternal Church of Life, and Deep Space. While both will add more background and ideas to use with Prime & the Misfits, neither are totally necessarly.

A fun product for supers player, G-Core or not.

by Michael N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/04/2018 21:57:53

Another fun addition. The commandoes are an R-Rated Guardians of the Galaxy that will certainly keep any campaign interesting. I had the pleasure of playing the module at Total Con and its addition makes this an outstanding value.......If you do not believe just ask Martin (the intergalactic salesman i had the pleasure to play).......A great addition to the Guardian Universe.....and a fun addition to any Super Hero/Sci Fi campaign.........especially if you need to spice things up

(G-Core) Streets of Fire Vol. 1
by Michael N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/22/2018 08:34:51

I love the Streets of Fire Series. The best part is the great backstorys of each character. Whethere you are playing in The G-Core world or your own these easy to add Rogues enhance any Superhero Game. Dozer is the stand out..... but Maul has becaome a favorite of my group and a sympathetic ant-Hero as well......and if the Jersey Crew were on TV Now.......admit it you would watch the show and root for poor Red Jersey Cheetah

(G-Core) Guardian Universe X: The Eternal Church of Life (Modern FASERIP)
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/10/2018 16:08:19

A lot of the recent G-Core releases have featured 'small' groups. Those that are a threat, but can be defeated with enough effort. The Eternal Church of Life may just defy that. The Church is one of the Guardian Universe's most widespread factions and one of my favorites.

This product has a myriad of details about the Eternal Church of Life. It fleshes out the Anti-Prime, it's leader and an immensly powerful being in his own right. It also talks about the heirarchy of the Church and how it handles different circumstances. There are stats for all sorts of Chruch member, ranging from simple cannon-fodder types through incredibly potent titans that crush the Anti-Prime's enemies.

Most importantly, there is an excellent backstory about the Church and its leader. Jay fills in the spaces hinted at before while creating a great faction. The Ethernal Church of life can fill all sorts of niches in a campain from a simple threat to an overwhelming power that can destroy the universe.

Well worth the price.

(G-Core) Commander Megaton and her Awesome Commandos
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/04/2018 12:03:45

As with the rest of the G-Core line, I enjoyed Commander Megaton. Jay takes a bit of a departure from the 'typical' G-Core model with this one. Instead of providing a lot of background material and a few characters, this one is all about the characters. There is only a short blurb about what's happining with the team at the beginning but that doesn't prevent it from being an intersting offering.

The product revolves around Commander Megaton (a mutant hedgehog with a penchant for violence) and her team of superhumans. They range from aliens that can calculate any possiblity to a being that can absorb any living creatire. The characters presented are intersting to read and there are plenty of fun things going on.

The main reason for the 4-star rating over a 5 is the lack of interaction between team members. What I mean is that since there is little overall background there isn't a lot of feel for how well the team operates as a whole. There are some connections made, but not enough for my tastes. It is mentioned that Jay plans to use the team as the basis for an upcoming session at a gaming convention. I imagine this is part of it, but it still feels a bit lacking in this regard.

Overall though, I think it's a fun product. The characters are intersting and could be used for most any type of supers campaign power level.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe X
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/13/2017 18:45:28

In this G-Core supplement, Jay ups the danger and intrique in his setting. The overall timeline has moved up several years and lots of things hae changed. A new president, laws and organizations have come to light while old groups struggle to ke it together. This is a great place for people new to the Guardian Universe setting to get started. While other products would be helpful, there is enough info provided to jump right in. As always the characters are easily converted to other systems and there are tons of ideas to mine.

The main reason I like this so much is that it is a love letter to things like 'Days of Future Past', the Ellis storylines in 'Stormwatch' and many other distopian supers comics. His writing has tightened up and his art is more dynamic than I've seen before.

(G-Core) Monsters Twilight 8
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/14/2017 22:05:28

Every year, around this time Jay releases a new edition of Monsters Twilight. These annual releases showcase a bit of the Guardian Universe that stands out for it's 'scare factor'. No supers world is complete without at least a touch of horror. Monsters Twilight 8 does a good job of adding it this year.

The premise is simple. An ancient artifact has been awakened and it's ability to raise the dead has become something of a... problem. Long dead Heroes have returned but are tainted by evil power.

As I said, it's a simple premise, but a fun one. Jay takes some standard faire and roughs it up a bit. The resurected Heroes are recognizable, yet have their own unique feel. Even the source of the trouble is interesting enough to inspire different campaigns that continue from here.

(G-Core) Stairs of the Immortal: Homegrown Heroes (Modern FASERIP)
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/27/2017 09:35:23

Homegrown Heroes is designed to help Players detail out brand new characters without becoming bogged down in unnecessary work. The premise is to create the G-Core fantasy equivalent of "0-Level" characters. As is always the case with G-Core based products it is easy to use and contains a great deal of information in a few pages.

Homegrown Heroes details the character's humble beginnings with a series of random-roll tables. These table present everything from the type of family the character was born into, to their personal status at the beginning of the campaign. It also presents a number of Metier's, or professions, that the character can start with. Each Metier's gives the character their base skills, starting equipment, and a special trait.

The only downside is that there isn't a random table for generating the characters metier. This is a minor quibble really. If possible I would give Homegrown Heroes a 4.5 rather than the 4 stars I rated it as.

All in all a great addition to anyones Stairs of the Immortal, or other fantasy based, game.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: Balston Group Module ROGUES
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/02/2017 15:20:30

Balston Group Module ROGUES is a direct follow up to Jay's last release. In the Baslton Group Module we learned more about the inner working of the multinational organization. We learned the whose-who of the company heirachy. We also know that for all it's faults, the Balston Group is still dedicated to the greater good.

That's where the ROGUES come in. They are the shadow to the Balston Groups relative light. They are what happens when intellect is left alone to create as it will. ROGUES details several groups that hold to these tennents. They range from fully converted cybernetic Yakuza to Russian weapons systems. There are also examples of what happens with the ultra-intelligent begin dabbling in gene-splicing.

All in all I give Balston Group Module ROGUES a 4-star review. More of a 4.5 to be honest.. The only downside I see to it is it needs the previous module for background information. This isn't 100% necessary, but more of a personal, completionist point of view.

Overall another quality G-Core product.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: Balston Group Module
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/27/2017 21:43:53

This product is brimming with background information. This product is different than nearly all other G-Core products. Most G-Core releases highlight the superheroes and villains of the Guardian Universe. The Baslton Group Module takes an existing company and expands it's info ten-fold.

The Balston Group is a massive, multi-national conglomerate. It fits a necessary role in any supers type of game, that of the Evil Corporation. But it does more than simply flesh out a bit of info and provide readers with a character or two. This product shows where Balston Group shines... in its multitude of subsidiaries. Each branch of the Balston Group is detailed. They are all fleshed out to provide readers with a great feel of everything the Balston Group can do, and what its up to.

Each subsidiary has a brief section covering what it 'does'. Some are geared toward healing the sick, some toward saving the Earth and some toward space exploration. The company is listed with a brief write-up of its backgrounds, it's key members and anything it is specifically known for. The star of this is the slew of important people that are featured. They don't wear capes but are still quite important. Each company has 1 (sometimes more) key employee that is given a great deal of attention. This information is great for GM's who want a better feel for the direction that subsidiary is going and for those that just need inspiriation.

The Balston Group Module is great. It does something that most other games gloss over and does it in an easy to digest way.
