Vindicator base class
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: ARMR Studios
Date Added: 03/10/2017 03:57:09
Vindicator base class An Endzeitgeist.com review This base class clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 3 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look! The vindicator presented here is a full-BAB-progression class with good Fort-saves that receives 4 + Int skills per level, has d12 HD and proficiency with all armor as well as simple and martial weapons, but not shields. The class receives Diehard at first level. The eponymous vindication ability of the class can be activated 1/level, + an additional time per 3 levels after that and may be maintained up to class level + Constitution-modifier rounds, with activation and ending action being swift actions. (As a nitpick, the Con should be the full word, not the abbreviation.) Vindication reduces the maximum hit points of the vindicator by an amount equal to twice his level, but also nets the class a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls with all natural and manufactured weapons. ...

Stay Frosty
by Michael H.
Publisher: Garske Games
Date Added: 03/10/2017 01:01:17
Stay Frosty It's just about OK. Presentatin and layout, like a lot of **TBH** reduxs, is poor. Grammar is below par but the writer's ability to explain a rule with just a few words is to be applauded. For the price, there simply isn't enough content here. It's a one-shot game devoid of background. The original *The Black Hack* is much cheaper. Stay Frosty needs better layout, proofing, art (or no art) and at minimum a worthwhile adventure included to get close to the cover price being reasonable.

Alternity Science Fiction RPG Beta Test Edition
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Sasquatch Game Studio
Date Added: 03/09/2017 18:44:43
Alternity Science Fiction RPG Beta Test Edition First some caveats about my review. First this is based on an initial read-through and not a detailed playtest as yet. When that changes I will probably come back to modify the review. Second, I am a huge fan of the original Alternity RPG. I fell in love with it when I got a preview quick start packet (similar to this one in fact) bundled with a copy of Dragon magazine about a year before the system was released. It is the one RPG I have a complete collection of and every one of my longest campaigns was run using the alternity rules... at least initially. With that background out of the way, I have to say this version of Alternity is... very different. It seems to get as much of it's game DNA from Strands of Fate as from the game it is named after. The new durability system, armor and talents all seem to be pulled almost completely from the crunchier of the fate variants available. The initiative system is very interesting, I like the idea of what you decide to actually do i...

Space: 1889 - Nocturne in the City of Lights

Space: 1889 - Nocturne in the City of Lights Besonders hervorzuheben ist an dieser Geschichte der stark nicht-lineare Aufbau. Verschiedenste Hinweise führen die Spieler an die unterschiedlichsten Schauplätze in und um Paris. Keine dieser Episoden ist zwingend zur Lösung des Rätsels erforderlich und oft sind die Schauplätze auch so ausgelegt, dass zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten andere Ereignisse dort stattfinden können. Für den Spielleiter gibt es eine chronologische Übersicht damit er diese im Blick behalten kann und Verpasstes gegebenenfalls über Zeitungsberichte und Begegnungen mit NPCs die Spieler darüber informieren kann. Anders als bei der "Macht von Angahiaa" sehen sich hier die Spieler einem gewissen Zeitdruck ausgesetzt, da sie nicht überall gleichzeitig sein können und ihre verschiedenen Gegenspieler ihre Pläne auch ohne Zutun der Spieler vorantreiben. So oder so läuft aber alles auf einen Höhepunkt zu, welcher auf unterschiedlichste Weise, sei es durch Einschleichen, offene Einladung und Verhandlung oder Angriff gelöst wer...

Wen: A GM Reference for Dungeon World, Volume 2: Cities This had a lot of great ideas inside. You could easily drop a party into this environment and play to find out what happens or you could just mine the material for some great additions to your own city.

DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e)

DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e) I want so badly to give AL modules a high rating because I know that these are written for the AL community...but I just can not until we get the editorial issues resolved. This one has many glaring issues that would only take a few minutes to fix if someone would just go through the process of doing an editorial review. Currently the Cert page has 3 copies of the cert listed. Unfortunately each one is different and only the top one is usable...therefore I have to print out a whole page and then shred 2/3rd of the page once I cut out the one that I need.....for each table that I am running at the store. When we were told that things were going to be sold on DMsGuild it was with the understanding that QUALITY would improve....this has not been the case. On top of that...the price is now more per module that we were originally told....I don't have a problem paying $4 for a module that is high quality....I have a real issue paying $4 when a document doesn't even look like it has ...

Alternity Science Fiction RPG Beta Test Edition

Alternity Science Fiction RPG Beta Test Edition Ah yes. Alternity 2.0 is here and the beta for it is a piece of crap. This is disappointing from somebody who enjoys Alternity a lot and was looking forward to seeing a new edition. Unfortunately, in its current form, this beta basically says to Alternity, "Nope. We're going to use your mechanic, adjust things a bit and screw the rest." I don't usually write reviews for RPG products but I had to here. I would like the designers to answer something: Why in the world did you decide that a roll over mechanic using the Alternity system would work? IT DOESN'T. This is a convulated attempt of taking the Alternity name and make a 'new and improved' system. I REALLY hope that the designers go back to the drawing board because as it stands now, when this new system comes out officially, I will not even look to buy it. Yes, I know this is a beta but still... no way would I want to play this....

Stay Frosty Absolutely sectacular game. Great translation of basic Black Hack rules to a fun and gritty Sci-Fi setting in the vein of Aliens and other bug-hunting genres. Hope we see more for this system: more creatures, equipment, scenarios, and campaign setting ideas. System is ripe for expansion.

Trail of Cthulhu: Out of Time
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
Date Added: 03/09/2017 07:54:32
Trail of Cthulhu: Out of Time This is a compilation of four previously-published adventures - Not So Quiet, The Black Drop, The Big Hoodoo, and Castle Bravo... it's nice to have them all in one place, and at least one is no longer available as a stand-alone product. Each is set in a specific time, mostly outside the core 1930s setting used for Trail of Cthulhu - one from the First World War and two set in the 1950s - and all can be played Pulp or Purist, depending on your tastes. Due to this timeline, unless you've introduced time travel into your game it's unlikely that you will want to fit them into the same campaign and you may well want to make use of the pre-generated characters provided for each one. Not So Quiet is a one-off scenario, with pre-generated characters provided, set in a military hospital located just behind the lines in Belgium during the First World War. It's written as a purist adventure, but if you prefer to go a bit more pulp some ideas are provided to enable you to run it in that style. ...

So, this adventure, in a way, is the story of one special ogre called Bruboe, mocked relentlessly by his brutish brethren for his artistic ambition. In exile, he found his calling - becoming a great actor! The audience he found was ultimately that of mutated belching goblins. While the ogre has managed to accumulate a variety of costumes, he is lacking good boots - which is where the eponymous new boots come into place. Bruboe has kidnapped Nogget, the best cobbler of Bright Moon Valley by luring him under false pretense with a letter (note that if your game treats literacy as rare...among common folk o...

The umbra class presented herein receives d8 HD, 6 + Int-mod skills per level, 3/4 BAB-progression, good Ref- and Will-saves and proficiency with simple weapons as well as hand crossbow, rapier, sword cane (nice!), shortsword, kukri, starknife and (composite) shortbows as well as light armor and bucklers. The class also nets 30 ft. darkvision and low-light vision at first level, which makes it too dippable from the get-go, even before the other options, but that just as an aside. Darkvision increases to 60 ft and 120 ft. at 6th and 11th level, respectively, with 17th level providing see in darkness. The umbra begins play with a shadowcraft pool equal to class level + Wisdom modifier (the pdf annoyingly uses the three letter attribute shorthand in an unnecessary formatting deviati...
