CT- B06-Scouts No matter what RPG setting you use... 'Scouts' is without doubt the most sophisticated and accurate star system generator you are likely to find. Personally I'm an author and I find it invaluable for creating realistic settings Its clear that the authors had a love and understanding of REAL astronomy allowing the user to be really specific about the star system that's been created.You know tyou are on safe ground when the first thing your dice roll are the spectral class of the star and then burrow down to the tiny details that might normally not be important until they are.. like the axial tilt of a world or the length of day (eg an 80 degree tilt and a 200 year long day) ...

NeuroSpasta (5E) I like it. It is full of good ideas and for example the freediver class is very exciting.

Dark Eras: The Sundered World (Werewolf: the Forsaken, Mage: the Awakening)

Dark Eras: The Sundered World (Werewolf: the Forsaken, Mage: the Awakening) I'm going to be breif. If you're not going to get all of Dark Eras this is the one you need. Real talk. The setting is evocotive and frankly I would buy a new book shelf for an entire game line of High Stone Age Chronicles of Darkness. I'd want that shelf to be full. Do caveman werewolves and wizards sound cool? Do you have four dollars? Well then go click the buy button.

Crossed Swords

Crossed Swords I've always been interested in the three musketeers since I read The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas a very long time ago. I am not going to go into detail about the mechanics of this game because the previous review has already done an excellent job of it. But I must say that the author has done a beautiful job of creating the France and Paris at the time of the musketeers. he obviously knows his stuff and done his research. He probably has the same love of the period that I do and it shows. I have played in a campaign using this set of rules as a musketeer and had a great time. The information provided would keep you satisfied even if you had not read any of the books, or seen the movies and the television program. The character generation is straight forward and the game mechanics work well with no surprises. I have owned and played a previous game called Flashing Blades in the distant past. I like this game better than that game from twenty-five or more years ago....

Set Europe Ablaze
by Glen A.
Publisher: J.B.K. Game Design

Set Europe Ablaze I purchased this rule set a while back and have been through several scenarios/adventures with it. I won't go into details on my character but he actually survived all of it and we all had a great time playing. The mechanics of this rule set work very smoothly and it is easy to understand how it all flows together. I especially like how damage is doled out. The damage system goes like this: roll for your attack, add the weapon damage and the positive difference between your roll and the number you needed to hit. That's the damage you deal to your opponent. It works well. The art is more than adequate and well done. The background information that sets the scene for playing is well done and covers pretty much what you need to be prepared. It is obvious to me that the author spent a great deal of time in research. Character generation is not impossibly complicated, either. It is just enough to give you an interesting character. You need to know that this game is not set up for...

Axebanes Index Card Pocket Maps

Axebanes Index Card Pocket Maps I love the fact that there is both the DM and Player versions to these! There is nothing worse, when it comes to handouts, where you have to hand draw the player option. Having these pre-done is great. I understand these are designed to be printed onto 3 x 5 cards, but by landscaping the print, dropping the print size to 98%, I'm able to print them out for a larger size card, which I prefer at the gaming table. The larger size is better for players too. The versatility here is an added bonus. Lastly, the addition of the draw your own grids at the back allow me to tweek the maps by adding extra levels, whist still using the same format ... excellent. All up, very impressed and looking forward to Axebanes next Pocket Maps set ... maybe a wilderness (camp sites, clearings, groves, etc) or building (inn, tavern, manors, shops, blacksmith, etc) set next time :P...

Anime Action: Diceless Anime-Style Roleplaying
by Michael J.
Publisher: Three Sages Games
Date Added: 02/17/2017 17:04:29
Anime Action: Diceless Anime-Style Roleplaying Oddly I felt that this was very similar (except for all the dfferences) to the PDQ system. Making the character was a lot like it. The Fiat (attributes) and traits were set up a Lot like PDQ, but spending energy et al to push it higher, and then if you lost, consequences (sort of like FATE) instead of losing ranks. So sort of an expanded PDQ, but nothing Left to chance. I also like Tia (the demon girl on the cover) giving examples and explanations through the book.

Jaunt: Blood in the Snow
by Xarr J.
Publisher: Roan Studio
Date Added: 02/17/2017 16:25:29
Jaunt: Blood in the Snow A nice, well thought out village mod that could be a starting adventure or dropped into almost any campaign world. There's a broad layout of follow up ideas and background to the area, ie: the druidic order, the merchant who will deal in stolen goods but not in the towns trademark wine. I'm looking forward to using it, though I'm already adding characteristics and more intrigue to the townsfolk and customizing to the 5e game (including Volo's guide) to match my players styles of play.

Everyman Minis: Mysteries of Passion
by Customer Name Withheld [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Rogue Genius Games
Date Added: 02/17/2017 14:28:27
Everyman Minis: Mysteries of Passion Deities of love, romance, and sexuality are replete throughout both history and fantasy. As such, the lack of any mystery options for oracle characters in Pathfinder, even across multiple releases, was a void that was crying out to be filled. Everyman Gaming and Rogue Genius Games purport to have the answer with Everyman Minis: Mysteries of Passion. Let’s take a look and see what’s here. Before anything else, I need to issue a disclaimer: at the time of this writing, the author of this product is running a crowdfunding campaign to publish a book of thematic character options that expand on what’s here, to which I’m financially contributing. That’s not something that’s influencing my review, but I wanted to put it out there anyway. Mysteries of Passion is seven pages long, with one page for the cover, one for the credits, a page-and-a-half for the OGL, and another page-and-a-half for ads. The remaining two pages are a combination of the introduction, a reprinting of the cover art,...

Coriolis - The Third Horizon core book
by Robert J.
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 02/17/2017 14:02:59
Coriolis - The Third Horizon core book Very rules light, but it has enough crunch to sink your teeth into without getting bogged down. The game, both in lore and mechanics, feels like it took the best from Mass Effect, Shadowrun, and Warhammer 40k and created a wonderful, interesting world full of crazy ideas that lend themselves well to a science-fiction world with distinct dark fairy tale aspects. This is going to be a phenomenal game for new players and veterans alike, with plenty of room for GMs to either expand on the lore and put their own spin on it, or completely divorce the mechanics from the setting and make their own universe to explore. The game puts an emphasis on the narrative of the dice rolls, and the rules create a story that the players and GM write together. The players are treated as special - bona fide hero types, while never making them impossible to kill. Combat can be fast and dangerous, but it is only lethal if the players start to lose badly. Since killing the PCs requires a choice by buying cri...

Weapons of Legacy

Weapons of Legacy Love this idea, had been thinking about something like this myself and this really brought the idea together. I proposed it to my players and they liked the idea 2. I have so far made one original item myself and am in the process of modifying another know that I know the play it is meant for will love. I think this may be the best money I have spent on D&D so far. I am a new DM so maybe if you are experienced this wouldn't be so cool but I thought it was great and so glad I found it. Definitly recommend. ...

Conan: Jeweled Thrones of the Earth
by Cedric C. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 02/17/2017 12:45:22
Conan: Jeweled Thrones of the Earth **Conan: Jeweled Thrones of the Earth** consists of seven separate adventures, each a different part of Conan's world. To reflect how the Conan stories were written, the adventures encourage the reader to run the adventures back in forth in time, and, of course, like any roleplaying game, mix and match the adventures with other gamemaster ideas. Of course, the regular rules assume the adventurers have spent months carousing between adventures, so it's not difficult for the players to find themselves in one part of the world at one time, and another the next. Each adventure should take several gaming sessions. **Devils Under Green Stairs** finds the players stumbling across the forgotten city-palace of Zukundu, where a trio of degenerate tribes have an uneasy peace that becomes bloody war. I would say that the adventure is intermediate in difficulty, with the gamemaster having to manage various intelligent (though vengeful) NPCs. The adventure is on the linear side, mostly assuming t...
