FSpaceRPG Boarding Action Scenario BETA
Publisher: FSpace Publications
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/20/2010 21:22:35
The price is about right for a very straightforward combat set-up in an early space opera setting (Solar System, hyperdrive just coming in) with really not enough to it to present significant problems fitting it in with a different background.

Leverage: The Quickstart Job
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/20/2010 05:53:40
This has an interesting structure, with ways for different team members to assist the lone-hacker types who traditionally have posed a problem for game play and a "wrap up" phase that changes the narrative around quite radically. The rule system looks like a pretty simple little toy, but maybe the full game shows more subtleties.

Witchblade #85
Publisher: Top Cow
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/16/2010 04:25:10
I was expecting .. more, but no doubt, since I praised an earlier part of this arc for its restraint, I can't have it both ways. The big finish seems more manipulative than epic.

Witchblade #83
Publisher: Top Cow
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/13/2010 04:17:24
Great issue! It's definitely out with the old, in with the new. Things begin moving along and the scope of the conspiracy begins to appear, after a dilatory previous couple of episodes.

I like this new direction, with more restrained art and a storyline with genuine pull.

Castlemourn Cortex Quickstart
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/06/2010 21:40:18
Treatment of magic and fantasy creatures in Cortex seems to work well here, promising a strong alternative fantasy system in the making.

The sample adventure and its setting have a bit more of a folkloric feel than many standard fantasy offerings. I wonder how players used to other settings will respond to some of the more direct plot-driving events.

Ancient Trails: So It Begins
Publisher: Terra-Sol Games LLC
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/02/2010 23:57:28
Some of the characters and organisations in this scenario are interesting, but it all feels amazingly generic, presenting a series of jobs out of the big list of SF plots that end up with the PCs handed some alien gewgaw that appears to be the hook for later adventures. There's little actively _wrong_ with it, apart from some slips of editing.

Space Mafia - A Galaxy Command Sourcebook
Publisher: Skortched Urf' Studios
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/02/2010 02:01:33
This is a superior piece of space opera, good-looking, energetic and just a bit over-the-top, giving character-generation options and campaign nuggets to describe Mafia-run worlds and hardened children of the empire of crime anywhere.

2300 AD Mission Arcturus
Publisher: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/01/2010 22:52:36
I've run this partway through online, with some extra work on descriptions and graphics, to positive response from the group. The mission is well-structured to throw the characters back on their own resources in an unusual hard-SF environment, playing through a significant event in the campaign's history. Worth the effort, I found, to bring this fairly terse product to life.

The Races of Violet Dawn Skarren
Publisher: Inner Circle
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/01/2010 22:44:01
It's a well-crafted conversion of a combat-focused race with good-looking layout and art. For me, the concept was a bit one-dimensional and not as interesting as some of the other creatures of Violet Dawn, but I certainly can't fault it if that's what you want from the purchase.

A nicely-detailed mysterious encounter that could drop into any space opera-style campaign, with few dependencies on setting or rules.

Reva the Rat Queen
Publisher: Three Sages Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/25/2010 23:24:55
This free product supplies quite a large bite of campaign detail: a city map, rivalry between two hidden powers and a series of encounters with some new creatures to draw a player group into contact with what's going on, as well as the central character, who could prove very helpful not only as a patron but a source of unique magic. Mechanics look sound at a first glance. Altogether, well worth a look.

Initial Guidelines Booklet K (1977)
Publisher: Judges Guild
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/24/2010 21:14:47
A collection of tables and campaign snippets with some pretty solid ideas for world-building and dealing with player-controlled estates and followers, besides random data that might not be of much help.

Dark Heresy: Edge of Darkness (Quickstart)
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/15/2010 20:58:49
Impressive visual descriptions frame a competently constructed if fairly simple investigation (it's not much like "undercover" work as advertised, but probably that's just as well) into dark goings-on in a blighted area of a hive-city. Editing really lets it down, though.
