Daring Tales of the Space Lanes: Galaxy Guide Sector #01
Publisher: Triple Ace Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/11/2010 02:41:36
A GM might find many of these one-page descriptions useful as starting points to build up an interesting planetary location, or for a quick visit. It's a squishy-soft kind of SF, but unlike some other products, doesn't descend into sheer babbling.

It would have been good for a setting supplement to include a few maps, landscapes or illustrations of local oddities, and also a few game statistics for unique local conditions, creatures or characters, but for the price asked, it is what it is.

Modern Dispatch (#83): Dramatis Personae: Roaring 20?s
Publisher: RPG Objects
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]

A well-considered selection of characters to describe. The Prophecy rules look very interesting, though raise some minor mechanical questions for me.

Fantasy Folio: Masterwork Qualities
Publisher: Big Finger Games

I like the idea of this in general terms. The examples are well described. Costs seem seriously off and arbitrary between themselves too.

Contents seem reasonably well known. Multiple typos are a bit of a let-down.

Good descriptions and progression between the different tiers. I found the minimum-price ones especially interesting.

HELLAS: Map of the Known Worlds
Publisher: Khepera Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/28/2010 07:52:23
It's mostly a map of the Mediterranean, stylised and overlaid with a hex grid and some star graphics, but having said that, it looks very nice and makes imaginative use of its sources.

The Derelict Ship of the Ancients
Publisher: Nomadic Delirium Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/28/2010 07:43:27
Interesting background, good level of detail to run these encounters and let the players know what they find. The ship still has plenty of active systems and the Ancients are not all that impressive, so it's more The Mostly Intact Ship of Those Other Guys. Maps seem to be poor digital photos of some pencil line drawings, which look bad and are barely readable, though to be fair, it's only been a few weeks since I saw a similar level of effort from a much better-known publisher.

Daring Tales of Chivalry #03: The Danbury Curse
Publisher: Triple Ace Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/17/2010 18:56:13
A straightforward and well-presented classic faerie incursion (the PCs' likely allies are also not without their perils and diverging motivations) leading to a ferocious combat.

JG Traveller- Starships and Spacecraft v1.1
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/16/2010 03:17:47
It's a really nice expansion of the standard Traveller vessels and vehicles, with deck plans, two pages of scale drawings (added for this PDF) showing all their comparative sizes and various other details.

Some very deft alternatives, even now, to races, classes and options not covered in the first releases for 4th Edition.

Combat Advantage #18
Publisher: Emerald Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/14/2010 22:26:34
Worth the recent struggle to download, with some impressive class variants (still needing a small amount of clean-up for a few powers) and short adventures.

The Dordogne Zodiac
Publisher: Hero Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/14/2010 22:14:28
The author makes much of his indie one-man-band status in the text, but has actually presented a very polished pulp adventure against a Lovecraftian pre-human cult, with a series of suggestions for ongoing adventures. Good-looking and clear maps and handouts should be a big help to a GM.

Trail of Cthulhu: Castle Bravo
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/06/2010 17:51:54
Making the investigators deal with '50s ideas of nuclear safety, before any Mythos horrors show up, appeals to me. Some reinterpretation that, I suppose, is reasonable but not compelling and a few scenes that have the potential just to become silly. 3.5 stars, mostly for the setting.

Alortun: The Crown of Skulls, v2
Publisher: Misfit Studios
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/05/2010 01:34:44
The product description more or less sums it up. I would only add that the game mechanics include the Knowledge checks for its various contradictory legends (with an extended method of telling true from false rumours) and the artifact's powers themselves - no prestige class for the elves, for example, though it seems as if it might justify it. A little rough, but with some work on a DM's part, it could form a basis for a good chunk of a campaign.

Sea Dogs of England
Publisher: Goblinoid Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/04/2010 22:42:01
The first section provides some straightforward action encounters that should run well. The situation on the cover, or inaccurately described in the blurb, is mostly played for laughs through GM narration. Honestly, probably best if your group enjoys a session of comedy.
