The Pack
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/13/2016 12:12:36
The Pack Great book, just the thing Werewolf the Forsaken needed. Fleshes out some of what needed to be fleshed out, gives some interesting new options. If I had a real complaint it would be the shortness of the book. It's only 105 pages long including the front and rear cover, the margins are a little thick and it seems like there could have been more. But alternatively it is nicely priced for its brevity. First Chapter has four sample packs and shows what the pack is like and how it operates from inside and out, including things like recruitment, solving disputes and duties through these four packs so you get a rounded out picture of the average pack that can then be used in games. One thing missing that I'd have liked to have seen is how they react to the death of a member. It follows this up with advice for an 'origin story' where you can start a game by playing the First Hunt of the pack, a nice touch that can help you put games together without handwaving how they all got started...

The Fighter - A Dungeon World Playbook
by Christopher G. C.
Publisher: Awful Good Games
Date Added: 05/13/2016 10:04:50
The Fighter - A Dungeon World Playbook I really, really like what this package offers! I prefer a fighter whose abilities are his own and not derived from some special weapon which can be taken away from him or her. I also enjoy the fact that this class can grow into certain paths, from the two-handed fighter to the dual-wielding specialist, or can even possess a variety of fighting styles. My only concerns are that I miss the racial bonuses like elves getting the Precise tag on their weapons and the fact that the character sheet doesn't look anything like a Dungeon World sheet....

House of the Harpies (3.0)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/13/2016 08:08:48
House of the Harpies (3.0) This adventures involves a group of thieves who thought they were ever so smart in having a base outside of the city on which they prey - the city guards are not concerned about what happens outside the city walls, and the thieves do not trouble anyone other than city-dwellers so nobody around the amazing tree-house they've constructed is interested in them either. Only they have now been ousted by some harpies... The obvious mission is to evict the harpies: whether or not the party is happy about the thieves moving back in depends on their outlook (or who is paying them!). The hooks provided to get them involved include, interestingly, a couple which are completely inaccurate but will get them to the right place, as well as more obvious things like the party rogue being approached for assistance. The city is left unspecified so you can run this adventure anywhere you have a city with a forest nearby capable of supporting the tree house. The plan provided (again originally from t...

Microscope http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2016/05/13/kurzcheck-microscope-
-viel-macht-ohne-verantwortung/ Ob Generationen umfassend oder Jahrtausende überdauernd, in Microscope gibt Ben Robbins den Spielern Regeln an die Hand, mit denen sie Geschichten in großem Maßstab entwickeln können. Als Spieler braucht man dabei vor allem eines: den nötigen Mut große Entscheidungen zu treffen. Kurzcheck: Microscope – Viel Macht ohne Verantwortung Microscope von Ben Robbins ist ein Spiel für zwei bis fünf Personen, in dem Zivilisationen erschaffen, aber auch wieder zerstört werden können. Im Vordergrund steht das Erstellen eines Settings, das hier um eine potenziell gewaltige Zeitkomponente erweitert wurde. Rollenspiel findet als ein Teil des Spiels statt. Es gibt keine Spielleitung, die Mitspieler erschaffen zusammen die Themen, historischen Zeitpunkte und Details für die von ihnen kreierte Spielwelt. Zwischen diesen erdachten Zeitpunkten können Tage, Wochen oder sogar Jahrtausende liegen. Ausgehen...

The Bronze Case
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 05/12/2016 22:55:39
The Bronze Case This is a fun little romp through a backwater planet, where the player characters are caught up in a situation where their good samaritan actions put them smack dab in the middle of a criminal underworld war, and some industrial espionage dirty tricks. The Bronze Case is presented as an "aside": the PC's ship is undergoing maintenance for a bit, and one thing leads to another, and they're helping a beautiful secret agent courier the epynomous bronze case to an undisclosed destination. Gangsters. Spies. Corrupt Cops. Car Chases. Road trip! **The Good**: the adventure is very come-as-you-are. There's no major plot rails here. If the PCs mess up, they mess up and they might have some explaining to do to the local constables, but they're Travellers, and they'll leave the port on their starship soon enough. If they are more successful, they'll have made friends with some corporate espionage assets. The NPCs are statted-up using the new Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition rules, and are g...

Pugmire Early Access
by Alessa A.
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 05/12/2016 15:38:35
Pugmire Early Access This is the "early access" version of Pugmire that was released for free to Kickstarter backers, and is now available to the general public. While the book is not perfect (it was never intended to be), the amount of information provided is phenominal - It's enough to run a full campaign and then some. The character creation system is streamline, but allows for a lot of customization, and is friendly to new players and table top vetrans alike. The book even includes some "behind the screen" secrets for GMs, so that they can better understand the world of Pugmire while running a campaign. While there are a few quirks (the magic system needs some clarification, and some of the Breed Families were obviously switched within their breed groups), the book is plenty to whet your appetite for the full core rulebook, once it's released!...

Mini Quest: Madness of the Mouther
by Michael S.
Publisher: Survive RPG
Date Added: 05/12/2016 14:13:29
Mini Quest: Madness of the Mouther Another fun mini quest adventure with a nice hook to start off with while the party is wandering a market in a new city. It works well to run it with a spooky vibe as the party explores the thieves guild, not revealing the true source until the very end. If your party is finding it too easy trap them in the end room. It will be a much tougher fight if they can't run away or put some distance between them and the final monster. I also made the other encounters a bit more difficult as my players were breezing through too fast. If I were to run it again I would add some traps. The NPCs Sorensa and Kezmar are good characters to continue using into other adventures....

Mini Quest: The Talisman of Moloch

Publisher: Survive RPG
Date Added: 05/12/2016 13:35:21
Mini Quest: The Talisman of Moloch Excellent followup to Madness of the Mouther, which I also really enjoyed running for my group. My only request would be to update or add information to make it compatible with 5e. The adventure offers two great characters for role playing, Sorensa the thief and Arista the cleric. The 5-day journey to Mollach's tomb with Arista really helped to have my players connect with her to the point where they were visiable saddened by the ending, which I consider a win for the adventure and for myself as the DM providing the experience. Sorensa makes a great villian to haunt the party long into the future. I felt there was just the right balance between providing enough of a story to work with and the flexibility to tell it my way....

The Black Hack

The Black Hack http://dieheart.net/the-black-hack/ (updated review) Maybe you are stumbling over this review at DTRPG/RPGnow or maybe you’ve picked it up on G+ or Twitter. And you are probably reading this because you are an OSR fan. Perhaps you’re wondering if The Black Hack is worth your time and money. Or maybe you are just interested in my opinion. (Thanks.) Either way, you are probably familiar with old school Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) games. The Black Hack sells itself as "… a super-streamlined roleplaying game that uses the Original 1970s Fantasy Roleplaying Game as a base, and could well be the most straightforward modern OSR compatible clone available. If speed of play and character creation, compatibility, and simple – yet elegant rules are what you yearn for. Look no further!" You might want to know if the product can keep its promise. In a moment, we will take a look at the game. At the end of this article, you really should be able to decide for yourself. I know you’re wond...

Graystone Tower

Date Added: 05/12/2016 04:15:27
Graystone Tower The author of Graystone Tower asked me to review his adventure and I am happy to do so. I crossed the path with Jim the first time a long time ago when I wrote Savage Space. He provided me with a review copy of his adventure. This is a reading review, I have neither run nor played it. I try to avoid overly specific spoilers but if you read this you WILL be spoiled about certain aspects. You are warned. Players: get out. Graystone Tower consist of two PDF, one in the usual, good-looking BareBonesFantasy trade dress and one printer friendly. Additionally all maps from the adventure in 300 DPI JPG depicting the tower itself and an area map. Both are full color and look very nice. The Tower map is sparse, just showing the interior but no furniture or other details. Works for me though, makes it easier to be creative with a rooms contents and makes it possible to easily hand it to the players after the adventure when they want to make the place their own. The maps included are very re-us...

Achtung! Cthulhu - Shadows of Atlantis Campaign

Publisher: Modiphius
Date Added: 05/11/2016 19:47:05
Achtung! Cthulhu - Shadows of Atlantis Campaign The quality of writing plus the depth and breadth of background information is amazing. This is not a campaign where you buy it and can jump right in so if you are looking for something light and easy as GM (or Keeper) then I would recommend going with something like 3 Kings instead. If you want something that is full of flavour and you're willing to put some time in reading (there are over 300 pages) then this is a campaign that I highly recommend.

13th Age: Eyes of the Stone Thief An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive mega-adventure clocks in at 364 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 2 pages of editorial, 7 pages EXTREMELY detailed ToC, 3 pages index (useful), 1 page magic item index (even more useful), 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 347 pages of raw content, so let's take a look! This book was moved up in my review-queue due to me receiving a print copy. While we haven't yet finished this massive monster, quite a bit of playtesting went into this review. We begin this book with an interesting explanation - while this massive hardcover very much does present a mega-adventure, it aims to provide maximum customization options to make this book really your own, to account for your table's tastes. Hence, we begin with a list of icons and how they interact with the stone-thief...but the GM is NOT left hanging beyond that: Instead, we get detailed, smart observations regarding the structuring of the...

The Black Hack
by Corey W.
Publisher: Gold Piece Publications
Date Added: 05/11/2016 17:29:16
The Black Hack *Black Hack* is an innovative RPG publication. It reconceptualises *D&D*, distilling it to its rawest essence, while offering some inspired rules variants. At times the simplicity threw me: "this can't be it?". But it is. I think the minimalism would put some people off, the spartan style is not for everyone. Those new to the hobby – those learning the game for the first time – might, I imagine, find the esoteric nature of the *Black Hack* ruleset problematic. The writing implies that the reader has prior experiences with role-playing games. Having said that, it would be an excellent option for teaching the game to new players (assuming the GM has prior experience). Reading through the booklet makes me want to run a game. It is simple, elegant, and improves some of the flaws of *D&D* without forsaking what makes the game great. It would also be useful as an options booklet for existing systems. I could imagine using the torch/rations/ammunition rules in any edition of *D&D*: it's easie...
