Noble Houses: House of Mehrcia
Publisher: Alea Publishing Group
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/15/2011 05:50:26

Very interesting to demonstrate how distinctive a setting element, such as a titled house, can become, with rules support infusing the general feudal ideal with their elemental, wilderness and wolf affinities.

X-plorers RPG
Publisher: Brave Halfling Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/02/2011 07:36:33

Game play rebalances the rules quite convincingly, to a brief look-through, for the different conditions of SF, with new sets of ability scores, classes and equipment, learning, in various ways, from the experience of a range of SF systems over the years.

Fantasy Classes: The Exhibitionist
Publisher: Dark Quest Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/08/2011 02:08:08

This new NPC class is brief, fitting the existing examples, but interesting in concept and includes a new class ability that enhances the NPC's mundane role, rather than adventuring effectiveness. A small world-building addition of good value.

Ships of the Galaxy: The Monarch Courier
Publisher: Blue Max Studios
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/15/2011 05:26:50

A good-looking small vessel in the ever-useful adventuring party size, with some very nice technical and historical notes to hook in to a campaign.

The Owl and the Hare Tavern
Publisher: Arsenale Shipworks
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/07/2011 05:42:00

I didn't find this map as helpful as the earlier Tavern when looking for something to use in play, although it costs more. It seems a bit too prosperous and modern (or at least Enlightenment) for my preferred influences.

Very complete and helpful tables repeated in a number of different sequences. Putting up this amount of work for free is much appreciated.

Like the "Challenge" index, very useful data organised helpfully in several different series.

Tavern
Publisher: Arsenale Shipworks
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/15/2011 01:55:43

I've used this in a game and found it a very sensible small generic drinking establishment, printing cleanly as a battle grid - just a useful thing to have on hand for practical game use.

Realistic Starmaps: 50ly Radius of Earth. Japanese relief fund special!

by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/15/2011 01:47:06

Graphically very nice, but quite campaign-specific as another reviewer mentioned.

Dolm River
Publisher: Soapbox Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/15/2011 01:42:23

A pleasant journey across a familiar sketched-out setting, with both straightforward fighting and twists that will take more than swordplay to resolve, tying in the heroes (whether they succeed or fail) to further plots in the ongoing campaign.

The Artifact RPG
Publisher: Store32
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/31/2011 22:19:11

This SF game tied to a single, unusual world (a bit like "Dawning Star" in that sense) uses its own game system. Writing is as you might expect for the price. If that fills a significant gap in your gaming needs, by all means you should take a look. Illustrations are reasonable fillers - some actually a bit better than the cover might suggest.

#30 Haunts for Houses (PFRPG)
Publisher: Rite Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/11/2011 20:49:52

A very good selection of specific haunts and extended concepts, with several classic effects and others that look useful as a framework for a scenario or haunted location. I might want to rework a bit some occasional overly-gamist traits, such as some of their means of destruction (but the first such mechanism presented, used for two of these haunts, is brilliant).

Production is clean and professional, with my only comment that some of the art selected might be a bit too detailed to work optimally in monochrome at the size used.

Abandon All Hope: Somewhere In Between
Publisher: RPG Objects
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/11/2011 20:37:54

Reads very well and suggests strong possibilities for its setting. Considering that it's an ungoverned maximum-security prison, stranded in space, with extradimensional horrors, the author does well not to make it unrelentingly grim or incomprehensibly warped, but instead use lighter, less threatening scenes, uninvolved characters, rising tension and occasional release to set off the really bizarre and scary parts.

The Temple of Issoth
Publisher: Lone Delver Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/21/2010 17:03:00

A straightforward and soundly constructed foray, presented well with clean design and decent small illustrations. Good reason here to look further at the publisher's paid work.

Infinite Futures Free Preview
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/29/2010 23:14:44

Pathfinder compatible? Well, not really, as a quick look at the table on page 6 will show. This is a separate branch of the well-known family tree and I can only guess that Avalon thought that would sell better than "d20 system". Art by Poser, editing by .. from the title page, no-one, though spelling and missed find-replace work is only mildly distracting here. It looks reasonable for third-party work if a new D&D/SF mashup with a medium-light learning curve is what you want, not a standout as SF systems go generally. Free download or not, it should include the OGL.
