A Measure of Faith (Expert)
by Thomas V.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 01/24/2017 02:56:28
A Measure of Faith (Expert) One of the best if not the best SoTDL adventure so far. Located on the edge of the Desolation, A Measure of Faith offers a nice mix of investigation and combat, with some memorable gory moments. There are relatively few NPCs present but they\'re all interesting, the two Inquisitors in particular. There are also a lot of things to do in the provided locations, the fortress and village, their description short but evocative. The dungeon ending the adventure is of the short but intense kind, which is my favourite (be aware that the encounters there could deplete the party\'s resources very fast leading to a possible TPK). So a vey good buy if you\'re not afraid of gore. The sourcebook Tombs of the Desolation, while not necessary, would certainly be useful as background material....

Wretched (Expert)
by Thomas V.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 01/24/2017 02:18:00
Wretched (Expert) This adventure is kind of a mixed bag. On one hand it offer great imagery based on classic \"witch in the bog\" tropes and doesn\'t suffer from the scarcity of details that plagues other SotDL adventures. On the other hand, it is quite railroady and the twist ending appears to be some sort of an Aesop (weird given the complete amorality of the game\'s setting).

The Nightmares Underneath
by Ben L.
Publisher: Red Box Vancouver
Date Added: 01/23/2017 21:36:40
The Nightmares Underneath You should buy this book. It\'s beautiful. The setting is evocative. The core conceit of the dungeon as nightmare incursion is fun. The bestiary is nuts. And the rules are a very interesting and innovative take on basic D&D. I did a full review here: http://maziriansgarden.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-nightmares-u-

Olympus, Inc

Date Added: 01/23/2017 20:23:19
Olympus, Inc I came looking for more interesting rules to use with my Savage Rifts game and came away with an amazing setting that I will be using for sure. With a full history and understanding of different factions and their motivations there are many great stories to be told in this setting. Add on the cool adventure builder for when you need a fresh idea and it\'s a book that I\'ll be going back to a lot.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: SpyCorps
by Christopher C.
Publisher: Dilly Green Bean Games
Date Added: 01/23/2017 19:29:44
(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: SpyCorps I like my supers with an Iron Age feel. Where things aren\'t black or white and every action has a reaction. SpyCorps is a great addition to anyone that likes spies, sneaking around, assassinations and world-class treachery. There is a detailed write-up of the SpyCorps and its important staff members. There are several potent NPC\'s that would make excellent foils for a group of do-gooders. Additionally there is a new character type: the Hellbrand. This allows Players to whip up characters like Spawn to rip into villains... or the good-guys....

D&D 5th Edition Spell Cards
by Lauren R.
Publisher: Matthew Perkins
Date Added: 01/23/2017 16:33:28
D&D 5th Edition Spell Cards Look great, but some of the spells are missing. From the comments, I guess I have a more recent PHB? I\'m new to 5e, and didn\'t notice anything was missing until I was looking at the cards to choose a spell (so much easier than flipping back and forth in the book) and someone else suggested one that wasn\'t on the cards.

V20 Dark Ages Tome of Secrets
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 01/23/2017 15:47:26
V20 Dark Ages Tome of Secrets A good addition to the vampire books that helps bring the medieval world to life, for instance explains the idea of tournaments and how they worked in the feudal world (without having to read up on people like William Marshall) and I like the touches of the everyday magic of the era (which would now partly come under science). The darker magic and its side effects is nicely expanded in this book, giving more of consequence when wielding powerful vampire powers such as necromancy. The new rituals will no doubt will help with story ideas, for instance \'Implant the Bezoar\' could make for an interesting vampire murder mystery storyline. ...

47 Holidays, Festivals, and Special Events for Your Campaign
by Danilo K.
Publisher: Blackstone Entertainment, Inc
Date Added: 01/23/2017 11:00:48
47 Holidays, Festivals, and Special Events for Your Campaign Considering it costs 1 dollar, this supplement is absolutely amazing, and would be very amazing even if the cost was 3 dollars. The holidays are cool, while mostly standard fantasy fare they do jog your memory and creativity quite nicely. Blackstone really delivered once again. I definitely recommend this company as a whole and this supplement in particular. The only real downside is that it\'s not printer friendly.

Trail of Cthulhu Player's Guide
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
Date Added: 01/23/2017 08:23:08
Trail of Cthulhu Player's Guide Released as a PDF-only product, this work puts all the information a PLAYER needs into his hands, whilst excising all of the GM-related material in the core rulebook. It has an advantage in being cheaper than the full rulebook, and keeps at least some GM secrets away from prying eyes (assuming, that is, that only one person in your group ever wants to GM!). The text is basically the same as the player parts of the core rulebook, so if you have that already, there are no juicy \'player secrets\' here! The Introduction explains the rationale behind the game, basically a desire to take all the things that made that classic horror game Call of Cthulhu so great and fold in Pelgrane Press\'s GUMSHOE ruleset that is specifically designed for any game in which the investigation of clues forms a major part. The underlying idea is that if a clue is important to solving whatever mystery has been put in front of the players, they WILL find it no matter how badly they roll the dice (and often, e...

Victory at Sea
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 01/23/2017 07:23:08
Victory at Sea I have played several scenarios using 1:6000 scale naval miniatures and find the rules to be a decent balance of accuracy and ease of play. There are some rules that need to be modified such as the air and anti-aircraft sections. For movement, it is more accurate (and quicker) to alternate moving formations of ships as opposed to individual ships. I also found that using AP and Super AP special abilities gives too much advantage to heavy guns as well as the Weak special ability should not apply to firing on destroyes and below. I also noted the torpedo belt is a good rule but needs some clarification as rerolling every damage die that was succesful seems a bit extreme. I have yet to include submarines to test those rules. Overall, a good set of rules....

Castle Falkenstein: The Tarot Variation

Publisher: Fat Goblin Games

Castle Falkenstein: The Tarot Variation An Endzeitgeist.com review This little pdf clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! So, this pdf very much represents a substitution - Castle Falkenstein\'s default mode to generate magic is obviously that of employing a standard playing deck of cards, which makes sense in two ways: For one, pretty much every household has one. Secondly, and more importantly, dice, in the era emulated by the game, were the common man\'s playing tool. A proper lady or gentleman would obviously play with cards. It is a cultural convention, much like playing bridge and the gender-divide in \"proper\" society between drinking brandy and sherry. Anyways, this, at least in Europe, does present an interesting occasion to watch the changing of values ascribed to cultural artifacts in action: At least where I\'m coming from, playing cards lack the luster and glamour of high-stakes poker games. Instea...

Legendary Kineticists An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of Legendary Games\' class-centric support books clocks in at 46 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 3 pages of advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 34 pages of content, so let\'s take a look! We begin this pdf with what many people would consider to be a star of this pdf, namely the artistic summoner kineticist, who is locked into either wood or water as elemental focus and their blasts are refluffed as ink if water\'s chosen, paper when wood is chosen and may apply the oil infusion to it. Latter infusion is gained, fyi, also at 1st level and has its burn cost reduced by 1 - to a total of 0. Oil basically allows for th drenching of foes and the better alight-setting of them and features a concise duration/mechanics-array. The archetype replaces the basic utility wild talent gained upon taking elemental foc...

The Starship From Hell

The Starship From Hell An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 3 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 39 pages of content, though these are formatted for the A5 (\'\' by 9\'\')-size, which means you can comfortable fit 4 of these pages on a given sheet of A4/US-letterpack paper, making printing this out pretty economical. Okay, confession time. I am one of the weirdos that had more fun watching Primer than with all of the Star Wars franchise combined. I\'m a fan of hard scifi, you know, the \"boring, talky\" movies sans kewl explosions and space battles. At the same time, I am a big fan of Dr. Who and can derive enjoyment from Star Trek. I also love Firefly. But know what? The type of scifi that first captured my imagination in my formative years was Alien. I managed to watch it at a family gathering while everyone was occupied. Ever since then, I was in love with dark scifi as well. Whether it\'s the alien-franchise and Giger\'s art in general, the...

Publisher's Choice - Fantasy Character Subscription
by Richard W.
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games
Date Added: 01/23/2017 03:30:20
Publisher's Choice - Fantasy Character Subscription I\'m a big fan of Rick Hershey\'s work, and use it extensively in my products. I\'ve already picked up all of the smaller fantasy art packs, and many of them include figure illustrations, which I find to be very versatile pieces (they can be used for archetypes or NPCs, or as general art, and because they don\'t have a background they don\'t need to be precisely aligned with the text, which makes the layout work much easier). This subscription consists entirely of fantasy figure illustrations, and it\'s slowly filling in the gaps left by Rick\'s earlier art packs. For example Rick has already released a couple of dwarf packs, but no elves - until now. Similarly, many of the traditional class concepts have been covered in earlier packs, but there was no bard until now. Overall this is proving to be a very useful addition to my collection (I\'m already using five of the pieces in my current project), and I\'m looking forward to seeing what gets added next. ...
