5E Mini-Dungeon #049: Doubt Not That Stars Are Fire
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: AAW Games

5E Mini-Dungeon #049: Doubt Not That Stars Are Fire An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked and thus, absent from the pdf, with only deviations from the statblocks being noted for the GM. Big plus: This mini-dungeon comes with a key-less .tif player map as well as a high-res GM map for VTT-use – kudos! Since this product line's goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion. ... .. . Still here? All right! All right! This can be used as a sequel to the "Pit your Wits" mini-dungeon, but works well on its own: Following a mutated goblin attack, the PCs have to go down the pit, th...

Super Secret Spy Agency

Publisher: FeralGamersInc

Super Secret Spy Agency This game is so bad, it would be the best MST3K review of all time. The front cover is sample art from a website with the watermark ineptly airbrushed over, there are major typos in the graphics ("confidencial"), the formatting is all over the place with bold being used in some cases but not others, spelling and grammar mistakes abound, I still have no idea how the mechanics work, and the interior art is again free samples sized way bigger than the graphics can handle and are a pixelated nightmare. That said, this book is a perfect example of what not to do, and should be downloaded and read to be believed. ...

Cut to the Chase: Dramatic Chase Sequences

Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 09/12/2017 22:56:05
Cut to the Chase: Dramatic Chase Sequences Tom's *Cut to the Chase* is a fantastic resource, possible the best I've seen of the Explorer's Society supplements so far. If you're at all intersted in *7th Sea*, you should definitely pick it up. Here's some of the best parts about it: * Momentum! One of the biggest complaints people have about 2nd Edition is that they don't know how to challenge their Players. Momentum, the use of a "Target" number of Raises that Heroes are working towards over the course of several Rounds is a great way to help mitigate some of those concerns, especially since the Actions of the Heroes can shift Momentum in their favor or against them. * There's TONS of examples throughout the text, helping you get a really good idea about how to use each of the pieces * Several references for when you're suffering from Creative Fatigue that you can throw at your Players. * Examples of now Skills could be used, even ones you might not expect like Perform and Empathy, during a Chase....

Paranoia Red Clearance Edition

Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 09/12/2017 22:34:56
Paranoia Red Clearance Edition **INTRODUCT-I-ION** I'll admit that I was backer #1 for the Mongoose Paranoia KickStarter campaign -- and dropped my pledge several days later. None of the original game designers? No James Holloway art? Cards?? I was quite happy with my first edition Paranoia, with its Falls from Great Height chart and specialized skill trees. And, I'd like to think that Paranoia isn't a game where you know all the rules. It's an atmosphere you create with the game as a framework. So, with that level of skepticism, I passed on the KickStarter, thinking that I pretty much had a High Programmer's trove of Paranoia, from first edition through XP. Well, you know how dangerous *thinking* is with Paranoia. **OUT OF THE BOX** The boxed set comes with three softcover digest sized books: Player Handbook, Gamemasters Handbook, and Mission Book. Additional Player Handbooks can be purchased separately. The set also has 110 cards, four regular dice, one Computer die, and six wipe-off character sheets...

100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard

Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 09/12/2017 22:02:24
100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard As with the other "100 Oddities..." titles, this product is designed to help GM's create more unique encounters. "100 Oddities for a Treasure Horde" is chock full of great items. Items that are much more than just a pile of coins and a handful of gemstones. This product is great for GM's in a hurry or need a special item in a pinch. This lets the GM create fun treasure hordes, great or small, that are as interesting as the players. Another great set of random tables from Skirmisher Publishing and well worth the price. ...

DDEX1-03 Shadows of the Moonsea (5e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDEX1-03 Shadows of the Moonsea (5e) Although the investigation started slow, the party progressed quickly in finding all the clues and finding help in linking the attacks and chasing down the next lead. In not trusting the local 'Folk' but aiding them in defending off the attack the final battle went off splendidly. The only catch was they refused the leave the island without investigating the alter and taking the girl along. All in all, great adventure.

DDEX1-02 Secrets of Sokol Keep (5e)
by Brian M.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 09/12/2017 21:45:13
DDEX1-02 Secrets of Sokol Keep (5e) Although I enjoyed running this adventure a couple issues did cause some problems. Such as the dialog prior to the barfight where people were mixed up as to saying things that ended confusing the PC group and had to be immediately changed to make more sense. Second, while it's nice for the GM to know where the ghost haunts on the island, no indications of how to summon her to meet or talk nor options for an encounter are given save where she throws a 'clue' at the PCs (which didn't happen) or causes things to fall over to help find secret doors (also didn't happen as they found all the earlier clues and found the way through on their own). In short, they solved the mystery, defeated the threats and overcame all obscacles, caught and brought the guilty group to justice and restored the lighthouse only to earn the minimal experience amount because they didn't talk to the ghost and left all the house money and baubles alone. Will someone either offer more options or help me with a recoun...

Planet Mercenary RPG

Publisher: Hypernode Media
Date Added: 09/12/2017 19:43:33
Planet Mercenary RPG If you are a fan of Schlock Mercenary by Howard Tayler, you can stop reading and go buy Planet Mercenary. The answer is, "Yes, it does the comic justice." For others, here is a science fiction role-playing game (RPG) based on a long running web comic that captures the fun people expect from reading about a group of space-based, future mercenaries. Howard Tayler, Sandra Tayler, and Alan Bahr to capture the universe of Schlock Mercenary. Instead of me trying to tell you what this universe is like, go on-line and read through some of the history the mercenary company has gone through. The Book I reviewed Planet Mercenary in PDF. I cannot address the binding or page print, but I can tell you about what I found. The layout of the book made it easy to read and to find information. Clear references are provided if you have to go to another page, which made looking something up fast. The equipment sections are grouped nicely so I wasn't flipping back and forth trying figure out wh...

100 Dragons

Publisher: Lee's Lists
Date Added: 09/12/2017 19:05:05
100 Dragons The Good: Decent for writer's block, or the need to whip up an on the spot monster! A lot of inspiration from 'real world' myths, so it's also great if you want to flavor a game inspired by such a setting. The Bad: Rather bare bones, and you could just as likely find this information on Google. Conclusion: Decent for what it is, but I'd get it on sale, even at this price.

Men & Monsters of Ethiopia: An RPG Sourcebook for 5th Edition
by Nicholas D.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 09/12/2017 18:59:42
Men & Monsters of Ethiopia: An RPG Sourcebook for 5th Edition The Good: Flavor and stats for a few creatures and NPCs which is always good if it means I don't have to make them myself! Some of the entries are really pretty unique. I especially like the Brown Dragon addition to the Chromatic Dragons. I'd go so far as to say that this is all you needed if you were simply looking to run a historical campaign based around Ethiopia! Over all not too terribly priced, but in any case I bought it on sale. The Bad: While I understand that according to myth they are accurate, but certain monsters seemed just silly like the Unipod or whatever, just kind of absurd. On another note, there were one or two copies of creatures that are already a part of the Monster Manuals and Volo's Guide Even further, some entries specifically state to use the appropriate Monster Manual entry! Lacking in content to truly call itseld a source 'book'. Conclusion: Totally worth it if you can buy it on sale, but I wouldn't pay more than a 5 spot to be honest. ...
