Hybrid Classes Vol. 2: Horror Heroes
by Jerry W.
Publisher: Wayward Rogues Publishing
Date Added: 08/08/2016 20:29:01
Hybrid Classes Vol. 2: Horror Heroes This collection of new hybrid Pathfinder classes definitely wowed me, I enjoy the concept of hybrid classes and I love having more choices to pick from when a character idea hits me. The two that stand out as my top favorites are definitely the Librarian and the Bullet Disciple. The occultist/bard is a concept that just screamed to be made, a spooky knowledge expert. But the one I wasn't expecting to like so much, the combination I never thought of putting together was the gunslinger/monk Bullet Disciple. After reading it, this character idea of a disillusioned aristocrat who takes to travelling and falls in with an order of monks who open his eyes to seeking inner balance and now walks the world striving for such while packing his devastating boom-stick at his side. As new inspirations for Pathfinder character ideas pop up, I gladly add these to my line up of class choices....

Questions Without Answers

Questions Without Answers This is a fascinating, if compact, rumination on the use of existential questions to add narrative depth to a game. While billed as a collection of questions, the far more valuable portion of this work is the 3 page preamble on the value of questions and their applicability to role playing. The author mentions Planescape Torment more than once, which famously asked “What can change the nature of a man?”, it’s fair to say that Torment’s driving question is what gave the game it’s depth and gravitas. Here, the author discusses several methods of weaving such a question into the fabric of a character, a campaign, or a world....

Urban Shadows

Urban Shadows I really wanted to like this game. As a fan of the good old World of Darkness and lover of drama and easy systems, I loved the idea of a quick and easy approach to those types of characters especially with some story balance included...but Cest la voie. The Vamp is the main thing I have a problem with but unfortunately as the iconic character type of the genre it is the crumbling corner stone that brings down the entire edifice for me. To sum it up the creators tried to make the game a deconstructionist metaphor for social interaction rather than a dramatic tale of monsters and monster hunters. The Vamp has almost no vampire abilities but lots of vague social manipulation abilities, no shape shifting, no mind control, no supernatural fortitude. Some of the other characters by contrast are perfect with gobs of iconic stuff Weakend by silver ect. Anyways. It ruined everything for me and I have no desire to play or run it as a result. I dont think this degree deconstructionism is a valid ...

Astral Empires, Starship Design Components Book NOt bad, but seems to be designed for making smaller craft. I don't think it would work very well for making large starships.

Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed
by Todor P.
Publisher: Arion Games
Date Added: 08/08/2016 03:23:07
Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed A great introductory system for younger players and a superb rulebook for returning long-time FF fans. The game works off a 2d6 + modifiers system that is a breeze, the flavor is great and the spell fumble table is called The Oops! table. It allows for your character to grow their hair to floor length in an hour, among other results. At this price, this is a no-brainer purchase. Finally, a word of thanks to Mr. Bottley who led a long and ultimately successful crusade to release this beauty in PDF format!...

Deadly Delves: Along Came a Spider (5e)
by Ismael A.
Publisher: Jon Brazer Enterprises
Date Added: 08/08/2016 02:55:40
Deadly Delves: Along Came a Spider (5e) Disclosure: I received a review copy of this product. Along Came a Spider is an excellent and unorthodoxed adventure. It lets spiders take the center stage as the villains for a low level adventure, rather than as the rabble and fodder that are encountered incidentally on the way to the true threat. This product is chock full of spiders, of all sorts. You have a young ettercap, swarms of spiders, and even a few new spiders designed just for this book. The adventure starts out pretty straight forward, but begins to take a strange and interesting twist. I won't say much for fear of spoiling, but I was impressed with the adventure, and I can't wait to run it. This adventure is thorough, and has some varied locations. This is definitely an excellent introductory adventure. It is balanced to help survivability, as it is a bit of an issue for 1st level players in 5e. It also has great sensibilities for adventure design, such as appropriate traps and encounters as well as appropriate...

Bunnies And Burrows

Bunnies And Burrows I bought this for my wife, and for myself. My wife is a fan of books like Watership Down and Tailchaser's Song. For me, this is a piece of history, and something to be looked at with reverence. The art is great, considering the subject matter, and the rules, while obviously dated, are amazing both as a playable game and from a developer's standpoint. If you have any desire to understand the history and development of role playing, this book is a logical choice.

Deadly Delves: Rescue from Tyrkaven (5e)
by Ismael A.
Publisher: Jon Brazer Enterprises
Date Added: 08/08/2016 01:54:02
Deadly Delves: Rescue from Tyrkaven (5e) Firstly, the background for the adventure is very well written, and seeps out character and flavor. It was plainly well thought out and very developed. It is excellently layered with a hook that does not belie the true nature of the adventure, and a twist that should keep player interest throughout the endeavor. Good setup and thorough execution of initial hook. Also, there is good characterization of various expository NPC's that promises a memorable session if a GM is willing to act them out. From the first encounter, it seems like encounter design and balance are well done for the sensibility of 5th edition. The initial combat is meant more as a test of the character's sensibility than their combat prowess, and could lead to some interesting decisions later. Statistic blocks are handled rather nicely, and are concise and readable. The next few encounters are a bit standard, and probably a sync for a 2nd level party to deal with, but it really builds up the atmosphere, especially ...

Midgard Heroes for 5th Edition
by Ismael A.
Publisher: Kobold Press
Date Added: 08/08/2016 01:52:12
Midgard Heroes for 5th Edition This is an amazingly well done book that gives a broad swath of new options for your 5th edition game. First of all, the races are amazing and varied; kobolds, bird people, playable and undeadare among the different options, and they are done well! The reason I got this book, I admit, is for the minotaur, as it is my favorite class, and I remain thoroughly impressed with the way that they balanced the minotaur as a class option. The other races get equal attention, and some of them are even given racial ability choices in a manner similar to pathfinder (in that you can swap out racial abilities you don't like for ones you do). Whether or not you play in the Midgard setting (as I'm sure that the architects of this book are hoping) then this book is essential, as it presents options that are inherent to that setting. But if you don't, it is still an amazing book of options. Did I mention the backgrounds? There are more backgrounds that expand the choices even further, and give an e...

Savage Rifts: The Tomorrow Legion Player's Guide
by Ismael A.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 08/08/2016 01:44:41
Savage Rifts: The Tomorrow Legion Player's Guide I have to say, I was skeptical. I stopped buying Rifts books at the turn of the century. I stopped playing shortly after that. I don't know what Savage Worlds is, and I haven't really given Rifts a second look in over 15 years. And yet... something about this kickstarter really got me wondering. And so I bit in for the miminum level to get the player book, and I have to say that I am impressed. It seems like this book is an update to every gripe and quibble that I ever had. I am still learning Savage Worlds, but the system seems really impressive and robust, and the people who put this conversion together love Rifts just as much as I once did, which almost rekindles something in my cynical heart. It might be a while before I can free myself up to actually play this, but I am eager and hopeful that I can make it happen, and relive the magic that led me into role playing in the first place. That magic exists in this book. I kind of want it in print now, too......

Exalted Second Edition
by Ismael A.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 08/08/2016 01:30:22
Exalted Second Edition It is hard to say much about this book that hasn't been already said, but I'd like to give an opinion that has the benefit of hindsight. I still rather enjoy this iteration of Exalted, even if it is woefully unsupported. Despite whatever misgivings that people eventually grew to have about this edition, it worked just fine, and probably continues to work. The issues came when it surpassed Essence 5 and... well, if this review is for someone who never picked this book up, let me say this. Do you want to play a demigod that can eventually punch out dragons and sway nations? This is the book for you. The 3rd edition is still in its infancy, and I'm sure you can find people to play this edition. Even now, the book is beautiful, is chock full of comic book pages, is beautifully laid out, is all color, and does a great job introducing the system and the setting. 5 stars....
