The Ruins of Myth Drannor (2e)
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

The Ruins of Myth Drannor (2e) I love AD&D - I have fond memories of Ruins of Myth Drannor, something that I've DMed many decades again. Interestingly, I even have the original box set but I thought - since they are releasing it brand new (albeit a scanned copy and not the box set), I thought I'll get it and have a good read while keeping my original in its storage state (preventing mildew and mould). However, I'm disappointed, utterly disappointed. Firstly, let me get the good out of the way. The print is of somewhat good quality, excellent binding and as far as I've (managed to) read, complete. Now for the bad. The print is smudgy - there's no crispiness to the words. I guess it is down to the fact that it is a scanned copy. That's still fine if the words are large enough to decipher but when the words get too small, it is almost a torture to read them! I'm 46 years old - eyes that ain't what it was before. Nearly 30% of the book adopts a font that's just too small to read and coupled with the smudginess - ...

Stealing Cthulhu

Stealing Cthulhu Very nice book, besides helping you in designing Lovecraftian-style adventures (and horror ones in general) it also serves as a guide to various Cthulhu-mythos creatures, and it pinpoints some specific aspects of Lovecraft's literary style. Reads in a breeze, higly reccomended! One last word, that you will understand only if you read it thoroughly: catacombs!

In Volo's Wake (5e)
by Clint H.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/14/2017 15:28:54
In Volo's Wake (5e) Technically, this product has content, so I won't give it one star. However, this product has two glaring issues: it's very poorly written/edited, and the content is little better than what can be created with a random generator. The writing was so bad, from a language useage standpoint, as to render the product nearly unreadable. For example, it appears someone replaced every instance of the word "adventurer" with "character". There's references to an NPC being a "former character" and references to "Characters League content". Either editing the content wasn't a priority, or it was modified after editing and prior to publishing. In other places, the writing is so obtuse it makes the story difficult to follow. This could be a boon, though, since the short one-hour modules aren't much more than what you can make for yourself from published tables. Given how much Wizards plugged the IVW content, this is a disappointing offering....

DDEX03-13 Writhing in the Dark (5e) Having enemies able to completely remove a character from AL play should not belong in any tier is my opinion, many dms won't use the plane shift or extract brain or the Brain stealing feature. Those that do will make this module a nightmare. The puzzle section was interesting but a large table of players fighting over the pieces was not a good experience or having players not do anything while a few solved it. The combat was not hard it was frustrating. The only thing i liked about this module was it was a T2, its short and the reward item is amazing....

DDAL04-08 The Broken One (5e) A rather short module, way shorter than 2 hours and the map wasn't too clear. I liked the possible ways that the players could have dealt with the encounter.

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) Love the new enemies listed, it adds more flavour to combat. its not a hit or miss fest. Not too keen on the explosive ending.

DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) Fun adventure - I really like it. It doesnt have much of a setup, so it's up to the party to decide how they got there. I am running this with Forge of Fury so I built the search for Khundukar into the setup. I have played this once (at Alan's table at PDXAGE) and really enjoyed it as a player. I also DMed it at a FLGS this week and it was a big hit. The table found a few opportunities to roleplay in lieu of combat, which is always fun. If a table wants, it could be a methodical, combat-heavy march through the caves but there are a fair amount of traps and hidden dangers to keep the party on their toes. Bottom line is that this is a great adventure. Kudos, Travis!...

DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e)
by Alexander W.

Date Added: 05/14/2017 11:03:03
DDEX1-06 The Scroll Thief (5e) The Scroll Thief is a great mystery adventure set during the Tyranny of Dragons in Phlan. The adventure has some really great descriptive notes to set the tone and atmosphere of Phlan, with important leads around the book district, "Scholars Square" and an invite to one of the many inns to set the adventure rolling. This was quite interesting as it opens up an area to allow the imagination to roam the dusty streets and bazaars. There is a small encounter, which we played via theatre of mind, which worked great. The adventure allows the DM to verve slightly off tracks because its quite easy to pick up the trail of what the characters need to achieve. Occasionally you may scratch your head wondering why the characters missed the next plot hook, but with so many different NPCs it shouldn't be difficult to steer them back on course. My favourite part of the exploration was as the plot thickened with a murder of a scholar in Mantors Library. The talk with the head curator and scurryi...

DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e) A celestial dog, a building that moves, and Gralm! What can I say beyond that oh yeah this is a deranged Dwarf Barbarian's friday night and the Elf Wizard's worst nightmare. Combat, Puzzle, Drinking games and great strengths of feet make this the most fun my players have had getting drunk, boaring out , and just had a hoot. Now my players like to order new drinks when they get to the bar.

DDAL05-02 The Black Road (5e) What a way to kickstart the Storm Kings Thunder Season. A meeting in the desert, A great way for Zhents to start. A good Balance of skills vs combat just incase your brand of MH actually wants to talk their way through the encounters. If you follow through all of Tier 1 , your players will feel great satisfaction by the end.

ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION)

Publisher: Grim & Perilous Studios
Date Added: 05/14/2017 09:41:15
ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG (FULL VERSION) Great! PRO: - it's "world-agnostic", you make the setting, but it works with a generic renaissance dark fantasy setting "out of the box". It's your game, not GW's! - 2nd edition rules and mechanics and 1st edition feel, but with it's own strong personality. It's darker, grittier and black humorous. - The illustrations. Glorious old school black and white, but, you know, darker, grittier and black humorous. CONS: - The lack of quickstart rules, the pdf is very huge. If you know the rules from the previous editions of WFRP you have to search throuh pages and pages, but if you are new the wall of lore may be disheartening. ...

DDAL05-03 Uninvited Guests (5e) Oh the fun you will have. Store ran 2 tables at the same time and we could not have had 2 completly different outcomes. This adventure branches into 2 paths pretty early on depending on what the players do. Lets just say depending on whats for dinner will determine your Univited Guests. Some nice scenarios for the Zhents to play with if they want to make a mark with the towns leadership. All in all a great follow up to "The Black Road".

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) Chelimber's Descent is better than most give it credit. If you are looking for a way into Princes of the Apocolypse, this is it. You can introduce the princes in the library, the traps give the players a solid introduction to the elements and the allies and enemies of the elements. As for some reviews the adventure is on rails and is a great puzzle solver. If you are looking for a 2 hour adventure to get your feet wet and are unsure if you want the players to make the choice throw in some books on Red Larch and let them decide. A great way to get the players to think with thier heads instead of just murder hoboing the entire area. ...
