CT-G06- Dark Nebula
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/08/2010 03:46:01
This is a mostly self-contained wargame of space fleets and world invasions that happens to take the names of antagonists and a location that later became part of the official Traveller universe - if it has anything to say about Traveller canon, my knowledge isn't deep enough to extract it. Text seems to have been retyped with some remarks about later developments. Maps (randomly assembled for each session of play) were well scanned but some of the counters are a bit blurred. Mechanically, the balance of forces and treatment of neutrals produce some interesting aspects.

Blessed by Poison (4e)
Publisher: Sneak Attack Press
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/08/2010 03:31:14
For a simple introductory adventure, it shows some nicely thought out encounter design and the author knows when to go all out with the creep factor. Looks good for the future.

D100 Discoveries Series: Temple, Castle and Wilderlands
Publisher: Zodiac Gods Publishing
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/24/2010 19:37:24
Each of these suggestions is brief, but full of possibilities. Well worth a look to spark a quick idea for a new plot twist or adventure. Some problems with word usage.

CT-AM3-Vargr
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 21:34:28
This supplement spends so much of its space telling me that Vargr are unpredictable, prone to change, variable from place to place and so on that it ends up presenting much fewer concrete descriptions of differences from humanity than some of the other comparable releases. Includes an adventure and basic sector information (zoom in, or get a good printer to read the maps).

LotFP Weird Fantasy Role-Playing Deluxe Edition
Publisher: Lamentations of the Flame Princess
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 21:19:31
Some really nice updates and clarifications to the Basic D&D standard in a somewhat grim, low fantasy mood. Given a few published adventures to back it up, I'd say this deserves to become a significant new standard for the old school.

Monster Menagerie: The Kingdom of Graves
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2010 02:55:30
Nicely detailed creatures designed around the theme of family and feudal rulership. There are only eight entries and one or two are mostly variants of familiar undead, but it seems reasonable value for its cost.

Space Opera: Star Sector Atlas 3: Azuriach Imperium
Publisher: Fantasy Games Unlimited
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/17/2010 07:27:26
More than a little repetitive and refers in places to 'twin worlds' from earlier products without further explanation. Perhaps I'm just cynically less inclined to give the benefit of the doubt to the diabolical Master Race and ever-dashing Resistance doggies. Scan is watery on many pages, no bookmarks.

MT DTRPG Guide to MegaTraveller
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/16/2010 17:33:13
Mostly a number of excerpts from MT books, which presents the era in the authors' words but unfortunately doesn't give me the information that I wanted concerning publication dates. A guide should be a bit more objective. I'm positive I've seen a better map, though, to be fair, it may have been in a later release.

CT-A08-Prison Planet
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/16/2010 01:18:59
A very different view of SF that resonates with all sorts of movies and TV of later date. It's strongly slanted to a particular outcome but still useful source material for different plots.

Useful run-down on various sabotage devices and booby-traps of the period. d20 stats look reliable.

Daring Tales of Chivalry #04: Castle Fairstone & The Madness
Publisher: Triple Ace Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/12/2010 02:17:27
Two excellent scenarios combining social division, faith, faerie legends and strange magic with a good amount of swordplay. Both might leave few opportunities, beyond simple talking, for any priest-type characters, but it shouldn't be hard to fit in ways to remedy that.

Solar Smith and The Sky-Pirates of Arcturus! - PDF
Publisher: Hero Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/11/2010 05:13:59
A fascinating concept with an amusing visual theme to its technology. Each element of the setting felt a bit underdeveloped to me, suggesting some period series or author that I could drop in to juice it up and pull it together a bit more, so maybe a page or so on those potential sources would have been helpful. Fully developing two or three adventures for the setting perhaps could have given it more sinew. It's possible, I suppose, that I'm holding this to a narrative standard that most of the pulp writers themselves would have struggled to meet.

A fine collection of holy blades and their histories, dedicated to a series of very different interpretations of Good.

I'm left with a few questions after reading this, particularly over the .. reinvention, I suppose you'd call it, of unholy water. The salesperson on the cover is presumably not Krazy Kragnar, unless he's been drinking some of his own concoctions.

From The Imperial Forges
Publisher: Stargazer Games

Date Added: 08/05/2010 01:37:12
Well-written description for the Warrior, Rogue, Mage rules of a selection of items that, essentially, you'll find in a gamemaster's guide of any edition for well-known RPGs.
