The Snow Field - Modular Terrain Tiles 03 This product was easy to use. It offered a variety of groundscapes for use on winter terrain. It is so versatile, that I will use it again for our next mission.

ALQ3 A Dozen and One Adventures (2e)
by Aaron I.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 12/10/2016 15:53:10
ALQ3 A Dozen and One Adventures (2e) **Note!** This version lacks the random encounter tables, which according to the adventure appear on the inside cover of the Campaign Guide. It appears the inside cover scan of the Campaign Guide is missing. That aside, ALQ3 is a terrific series of interwoven adventures that really evokes the Arabian fantasy feel, with just a touch of the otherworldly horror that Steve Kurtz is known for. There's so many ways a DM could use the adventures within, which span challenges suitable for characters from 1st to 12th level, but the adventures grow in value the more they are tied to other adventures in the book. There are two parts to this adventures: the Adventures Book and the Campaign Guide. The **Adventure Book** includes 13 adventures that for the most part are good, with a few highlights and a few misses. Most are ~5-7 pgs long. One of the things I really like about these adventures is that each has a section at the beginning that explores the adventure's ties to other adventures in ...

White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Seattle Hill Games
Date Added: 12/10/2016 15:52:03
White Box : Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game White Box, as assembled by Charlie Mason, is an awesome gaming tool! I am an old gamer, and i have been playing the game since 1975. i started with the original white box and have tried the game in all its incarnations. But i still love the old rules, and i'm a huge fan of the OSR movement. Sure the game is easy to learn and play, and nastalgic, but it is primarily a tribute to those facets of the game that got us hooked in the first place. Waying in at 170 pages, White Box would be a prize at $10.00, but its free! You need to download this game and play it! The book is laid-out well, and is an improvement on other editions of the game. The Will McAusland art is beautiful and evocative. Sure it's from his clip-art packs, but it looks great and was thoughtfully placed within this book. The print-on-demand copy of this book is excelently constructed, sturdy and ready for rough use at the table. At less than $6.00 for the soft cover I plan to get multiple copies and hand th...

Imperial Mysteries
by Timothy W.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/10/2016 15:45:33
Imperial Mysteries There were several good things about this product. It provides options for truly earth-shattering play, and there were some interesting concepts and well written descriptions in chapters one and two . However, there were also several things about this product that could have been far better. First, this product is really best suited for very small groups with one or two players along with the story teller. The system does not support group play (where group is even 3 players with the story teller) well at all. It gives reasons why archmages do not gather and why they are likely to work at somewhat cross purposes even when nominally allies. Moreover, the Imperium System provided in the final Appendix is deeply flawed and difficult to make work. To be fair, it states that these are optional rules in a game where all rules are optional. But they are nearly unworkable. The rules state that the Pax Arcana does not apply to Imperium, but these are precisely the things that it seems the...

Pirates of Drinax: The Torpol Cluster
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 12/10/2016 11:19:06
Pirates of Drinax: The Torpol Cluster Three worlds... yet of strategic importance to both the Aslan Hierate and the old Sindalian Empire, a nodal point in trade routes through the Tlaiowaha subsector linking the Wildeman Cluster and the Sindalian Main. This small cluster of worlds Jump-1 apart receives many visitors, from the Imperium and other places. The Introduction provides background information on the cluster and its history. There's a note that these three worlds may be located somewhere else in your universe, but it seems better to leave them as intended, as they are well-embedded into their surroundings. There is a partial map of the Sindal and Tlaiowaha subsectors showing the cluster's location within the Trojan Reach sector and in relation to other nearby worlds, followed by detailed notes on each of the three worlds: Torpol, Clarke and Blue. Torpol is possibly the pivotal world, as both Marduk (and thence the Sindalian Main), Asim and Drinax (linking to the Aslan Hierate) are but Jump-2 away from the Torp...

Secrets of the Covenants
by David C.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 12/10/2016 10:23:51
Secrets of the Covenants While the short stories are interesting, I find the lack of useful tools for storytellers and players alike a disappointment after the long wait. There are large sections of the book that are nearly illegible due to odd cursive font choices. It may make the book look pretty, but it's a horrible migraine inducing headache.

Triniton the Roleplaying Game
by Eliot L.
Publisher: Christian Ahlin
Date Added: 12/10/2016 09:37:34
Triniton the Roleplaying Game In a word: Wow.  This is a pitch perfect introduction to the roleplaying hobby. It is (very) rules light, but comprehensive on gaming technique. It holds your hand and guides you through everything about the system and setting, including a segment on talking your friends into playing with you. (See "how to sell it." on page 9!) The section covering game mastering is also meant for the new GM, but it will teach even the oldest grognard a couple of tricks. Further than just telling the fledgling GM how to run the game, it also addresses some of the finer details, with clever insights on handling players based on how they speak for their characters. (See page 211 for the Advanced Game Mastering segment.) On top of all of this, is a lavishly illustrated campaign setting with each new chapter representing another element of nature and some new complications that the party must overcome to progress the story. If I said much about the campaign world I'd be spoiling it, but the author hi...

Dungeon Encounters Great set of encouters for low level (1-5) D&D 5E play. The stats for all of the monsters and traps are included, so no need to flip through the Monster Manual or Dungeon Masters Guide for stats. They have an old school feel to all of them and include ideas for how to expand each encoutner for additional play.

Scarred Lands Player's Guide (Pathfinder)
by Barbara H.
Publisher: Nocturnal & Onyx Path
Date Added: 12/09/2016 23:37:17
Scarred Lands Player's Guide (Pathfinder) Let me preface this this review by stating that the old 3.X Scarred Lands setting was, in my estimation, the best setting to arise from those fabled days of yore. It had a really unique setting that seemed vaguely reminiscent of Greek/Roman mythology and had the most flavorful elements you could think of. The setting featured things like dragons made of ashes and hatred, a city of non-evil necromancers nestled against a dead volcano, a sea tainted by the foul blood of a chained titan, a lawful evil god of tyranny who seemed strangely reasonable, crystalline beings that sought to return reality to the formless nothing that existed before the titans, the Divine War between the gods and titans that scarred the mortal realm, and a city built around a giant mithril golem made by the god of paladins himself. Those halcyon days of sitting around and dreaming up new adventures for the setting are one of the things that I remember most fondly during my years of public school. So, that long...

High Guard
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 12/09/2016 20:56:04
High Guard I would've preffered this information to be within the core rulebook, as I felt it somewhat deceptive to have to pay another 45 dollars for something I feel is very integral to Traveller. However, the depth of information was amazing in this book, and it almost makes up for the fact that it didn't come within the core rulebook. Pretty much a must-buy for a Traveller player.

Black Pudding #1

Black Pudding #1 Black Pudding #1 absolutely oozes with personality and charm (yes, I'm sorry for that one, I'll show myself out). The art style is cartoony and campy in a way reminiscent of 70s and 80s cartoons, while the rules and materials are simple and adaptable to nearly any OSR-style campaign. Overall, this is one of my favorite purchases that I have made, and I can't wait for more!
