Date Ajoutée: 01/11/2017 01:07:23
Into the Wintery Gale: Wrath of the Jotunn AAW Games brings us a new adventure with Into the Wintery gale: Wrath of the Jotunn.

For fans of tv shows like Vikings and The Last Kingdom, this adventure will provide ample opportunities to get one\'s Viking on! The art by Jason Rainville, Mates Laurentiu, and Tommi Salama is utterly breathtaking!

Monster Pack 1

Monster Pack 1 I could run a whole adventure based on every monster in here. I helps that I get more than a stat block too. The \"further adventure\" part after every stat block gives a few ideas for where to take my game, take them or leave them. Nine of the ten can be dropped into almost any game. And the other one? Well, no spoilers, but my group had a big laugh!

Monsters! Fantasy Stock Art Volume 1 I love Daniel\'s work and have commissioned him for several of my projects. This is a great book of cool monsters. The Gelatinous Cube is fantastic. And, I LOVE the mimic. I highly recommend this product!

Founder's Fen
par Adam A.
Editeur: Limitless Adventures
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 20:50:38
Founder's Fen A fresh take on the adventure module. I cut my teeth playing 2nd edition and I\'ve played every version since. I have fond memories of those old, blue map adventure modules. But, if I had to nitpick what I had back then, it would be that they held my hand too much. If I went off script, I risked throwing the storyline out of whack. Founder\'s Fen let me stretch my legs while still providing a much needed scaffold around which to build several sessions. I surprised myself numerous times when I went totally off script for an hour or more at a time based on one sentence in a location description. I could never do that with those old 2e modules! I wish I had a bookcase full of this kind of adventure....

Dungeon Encounters This really brought the **dungeon** back to my game. My party likes to wander out of the adventures I write and this was the perfect tool to have on hand. Every encounter has a short description, short enough for me to read in the moment to decide if it fit in my session. When I\'m DM, I don\'t like to be caught flatfooted because I had a blank spot on my map. This is a permanent addition to my DM bag of tricks.

T4 Marc Miller's Traveller
par Rory H.
Editeur: Game Designers' Workshop (GDW)
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 19:46:49
T4  Marc Miller's Traveller This was never quite as bad as critics made it out to be - although the core task system being roll-under does create some issues in the game (the clunky rolling of ‘half dice’, and the increased emphasis of Characteristic scores over Skills). There is quite a bit of errata too, and some of the text needs repeat reading to make any sense of it. So it could have done with a lot more editing. There are, however, some very attractive colour plates of starship imagery in here, and while the rest of the layout isn’t flash - it’s not weak either. The cover is nice too and, at it’s core, this is actually a pretty good edition of the game to base star-travelling adventures from. Character generation is fun (as in the best Traveller editions) and the world and starship generators are pretty much the same as in all editions. If you want a more concise attempt at an authentic version of Marc Miller’s personal vision of his own game than T5, then this will serve you well. ...

Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle (D&D Next)
par Daniel L.
Editeur: Wizards of the Coast
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 18:18:25
Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle (D&D Next) Discovered this adventure recently. It\'s excellent - well written, with a balanced combination of role-playing opportunities, dungeon-delving combat, and overland travel. It has the \'feel\' of one of the early AD&D 1st edition modules - and I mean that in a good way. There\'s a coherent plot that spans four mini-adventures, which provides lots of opportunity for \'sandboxing\' in the region and character growth, without those adventures feeling random. Highly recommended.

The Blood Hack

Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 11:42:20
The Blood Hack Before I begin with the review, I want you to know, that I have had a privilege to work with this game. I did the layout, edited the text, made covers and a character sheet and discussed rules. But this review is not biased, because when I received the draft for this game, I fell in love. As I said, it was a privilege for me to get a change to work with The Blood Hack and its author +Matthew Skail. I love The Black Hack. It takes my favorite rules system and tweaks it to simplier and more versatile form. Even though I still enjoy early D&D and OSR games, The Black Hack is something different, yet familiar. And because it is a versatile system, it is easy to reproduce for different genres, like Cyber-Hacked! which makes cyberpunk fun and fast or The Super Hack which makes super heroes not a chore, with roots to my favorite game(s). In early 2000 I played Vampire: The Masquerade. I played it a lot! So much I grew sick of it for various different reasons. When I found OSR, I started...

Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds Being a fan of the Dresdenverse, I have enjoyed this adventure and felt like it fit into the \"feeling\" of Jim Butcher\'s world. Easy to read and it ran fairly quickly with the players enjoying the session. No issues with the adventure, but at the time we were new the mechanics of the rules and it took us a bit to get the hang of the part.

The Mutation Deck (tuck box)
par Customer Name Withheld
Editeur: Just Insert Imagination
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 09:37:55
The Mutation Deck (tuck box) The deck is a lot of fun when you\'re in the market for a quick, random Savage Mutant. It\'s great for supporting any post-apocalyptic homebrews (like Fallout, Gamma World, Thundarr, etc), even if just for the deck\'s theme, with or without the mutations. I really like the look of the new tuck box; it helps carry the theme of the whole deck. Be careful on the first opening, though... 54 cards in a 52-card box means they\'re packed tightly (but fit comfortably after a couple uses and the box has a chance to breathe). The paper used for the box is really thick, though, so no worries about ripping....

Secret Societies: Die Kreuzritter (Book 3)
par Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Editeur: John Wick Presents
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 08:28:16
Secret Societies: Die Kreuzritter (Book 3) The Kreuzritter serve the Vaticine Church, swearing a fourfold oath of loyalty, charity, secrecy and faith. Yet delve a little deeper and you\'ll find there is more to them than staunch defenders of the faith (or religious thugs, depending on your point of view). There are reasons for why they are as they are, and they have their own agenda... based on a single question: why did the First Prophet condemn sorcery? Chapter 1: Loyalty tells of their origins, their aims and objectives, their organisational structure and more. It begins with public knowledge, the information any Théan might know about the Kreuzritter or Black Knights. They started off as a bunch of healers set up in the Crescent Empire city of Zafara by a crusader and his wife, later expanding to include some peacekeepers to police the town and gaining recognition from the Hierophant as the Knights of the Cross (Die Kreuzritter) and being granted their distinctive badge of a black cross. They waxed rich and that, of cour...

Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed
par Cameron M.
Editeur: Arion Games
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 08:11:29
Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed Simple system, yet plays really well, and covers all the stuff any good fantasy games do. Really feels like an old school fantasy game for all the right reasons! The Fighting Fantasy gamebooks were my gateway into the world of roleplaying, although by the time of the original publication of these advanced rules (called Fighting Fantasy Dungeoneer back then) I had already moved onto more complex rpgs. It is with renewed eyes that I now look back ot this system, and this current edition of the Advanced Fighting Fantasy rules feels both nostalgic yet fresh at the same time. No character classes, yet its quick point-build character generation allows you to replicate all the fantasy archetypes, as well as lets you make up your own character concept from scratch. This system is perhaps the best thing to emerge from the OSR! It really has the flavour of handwaviness, yet none of the restrictions or confounding rules that came with the early editions of many other OSR games such as T...

People of Pembrooktonshire
par Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Editeur: Lamentations of the Flame Princess
Date Ajoutée: 01/10/2017 07:52:06
People of Pembrooktonshire An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 44 pages, with about 1/2 page being devoted to the editorial, leaving us with 43 1/2 pages of content, though it should be noted that the pdf is made with the assumption of A5 (6\'\' by9\'\') booklet-size. I printed out 4 pages on a given A4-sized page. While this is possible, I only recommend this option to people with good eyesight - the pdf is crammed to the brim with text and thus, my dead tree iteration became somewhat strenuous to read. If in doubt, print it out regularly. While intended as the companion book to the \"No Dignity in Death\"-adventures, the content herein is useful beyond the confines of OSR-publications and frankly, can fit into pretty much any game, from GUMSHOE to Castle Falkenstein to traditional fantasy. So, in order to talk about the content of this pdf, we have to talk about Pembrooktonshire. The eponymous location is a settlement, isolated between labyrinthine hills, noted for being remote and th...

No Dignity in Death: The Three Brides

Editeur: Lamentations of the Flame Princess

No Dignity in Death: The Three Brides An Endzeitgeist.com review This collection of 3 loosely-linked modules clocks in at 38 pages, front and back cover are contained in a separate pdf and so are the 4 pages of maps and the 2-page handout (more on that below). It should be noted that the page-size assumed would be a5 (6\'\' by 9\'\') and that you can, provided you have good eyesight, jam 4 pages on one A4-page when printing this out. All right, so, the 3 modules herein are set in the capital letter ODD town of Pembrooktonshire; while the companion-book depicting a gazillion of weird and strange characters is not required to run these, it does add to the general experience...but also, by virtue of the strength of the NPCs, can put the PCs of trail - so an experienced referee is required in such a case. Speaking of which: The pdf is very much a pretty sandboxy affair, which means no read-aloud texts or the like. This is obviously intended not only for experienced referees, but also for experienced groups. Indeed, one...
