Ehdrigohr: The Roleplaying Game
by Mike C.
Publisher: Council Of Fools Productions
Date Added: 07/16/2015 23:32:28
Ehdrigohr: The Roleplaying Game Kinda cool concept except... awfully executed. Feels like 300-odd pages of mind-crushingly tedious game mechanics , it even spends a couple pages explaining what a roleplaying game is. You know, because you might buy an RPG and not know what one is...somehow. Massively detailed pantheon... huge number of vaguely described cultures... Having done all of that, it very very lightly skates over the actual setting (if you bought it for the cool villages-on-the-back-of-a-turtle thing, yeah they get about 300 words). You wind up with only a very vague idea what a game might be about, like, various kinds of extra dimensional monsters bursting into our reality... seems to be pretty much what it's built around. Actually ... that's about one adventure worth of content in 300 pages of mind crushingly boring detail... And in all that there's like four kinds of monsters ... and all of them Evil Spirits or people possessed by Evil Spirits (ok maybe one giant spider). ...

Worlds of Pulp: Vampire Construction Tables
by Robert D.
Publisher: Scaldcrow Games
Date Added: 07/16/2015 22:21:27
Worlds of Pulp: Vampire Construction Tables This is a pretty good product for those interested in creating unique vampires and need a little inspiration. My only issue with the tables is that they all only seem to allow for a single result. Many of the more famous vampires of myth and story have a number of powers and weaknesses - it would have been good if the book also suggested rolling a random number of powers/weaknesses for some of the tables (perhaps 1-6 to keep with the theme of only using 1 or 2d6). Another suggestion is for some examples of vampires created using the tables. Even better if the examples could be of some well known vampires (even if copyright doesn't allow them to be named) - perhaps Dracula (book version), Varney the Vampire, Kurt Barlow, The Master (Jusef Sardu) etc. Otherwise, I like this and think it was worth the money. I can certainly see myself referring to this regularly....

Spooks! Welcome to the Great Beyond
by Nathan M.
Publisher: Nightingale Publishing
Date Added: 07/16/2015 17:18:12
Spooks! Welcome to the Great Beyond "Spooks! WTTGB" is a simple game intended for in-between campaigns, when players are missing from your table, or for a regular campaign setting. It's great as an introductory game for those new to role-playing but can still be enjoyed by advanced players. The mechanics are d6 driven with a poker deck as a means for magic spells or boosting rolls. The setting can range from dark horror to the ridiculous. Losing your character to "death" is more of a story-driven plot as opposed to a botched roll. With endless advancement without sacrificing adventure prep time, "Spooks! WTTGB" offers unlimited playing opportunity for players who refuse to give up a well-designed character. I am the publisher so I may be slightly biased. Check out the generous preview and see if "Spooks! WTTGB" is right for you....

Wanted
by Michael K.
Publisher: Assassin Games
Date Added: 07/16/2015 14:32:48
Wanted I am really impressed with Assassin Games' style. This is 10 adventures that seem to borrow from the tools they have released already (Random Urban/Wilderness Encounters), but with fresh twists on them. I was leery because of one of the adventures being vermin in a basement, that is until I read it. Many of the adventures are designed to fake out your players with old gaming tropes and provide an entertaining twist. The player handouts add a great theatrical dimension as well, having wanted posters and letters as clues. Well worth the investment....

The Seclusium of Orphone of the Three Visions

Publisher: Lamentations of the Flame Princess

The Seclusium of Orphone of the Three Visions Obscure jargon, badly organized, with redundant sections and no real inspirational value. Absolutely not recommended.

Hercynian Grimoire #1
by Eric F.
Publisher: James Mishler Games
Date Added: 07/16/2015 10:29:59
Hercynian Grimoire #1 The Hercynian Grimoire #1 is a 'pay what you like.' title from James Mishler Games for the Castles and Crusades rpg systems and the Labyrinth Lord rpg system. James Mishler Games has been quietly pumping out games for a long time now, The Hercynian Grimoire #1 is by James Mishler and Jodi Morgan Mishler. There's a real sense of the energy and creativity from this issue of the Grimoire especially when you crack open the Glowing Words where the writer introduces this OSR magazine. The Hercynian Grimoire is for both the Castles and Crusades rpg systems and the Labyrinth Lord rpg system. For me this makes this an especially useful magazine and its packed with wall to wall OSR style articles. Right out of the gate we get “Gnolls – The Hyena Men", an article that makes the humble gnoll race one of the most dangerous and flexible old school monsters, this article reminds me of the old Dragaon magazine ecology of articles. Fast, dangerous, flexible and terrible are the gnolls as a race.Ther...

Heroic Maps - Geomorphs: Wardenhale Sewers
by Paul L.
Publisher: Heroic Maps
Date Added: 07/16/2015 08:18:37
Heroic Maps - Geomorphs: Wardenhale Sewers Fantastic set, and the addition of a surface tile is an added bonus. Also, they haven't just copied over stuff from the other lovely Sewer Large Rooms set, and have therefore created a unique set for Wardenhale itself. I would like to see a small add on sheet of stairways that could be cut out and placed onto the normal Wardenhale surface tiles though, as I have all of them, and would like to be able to introduce the sewers on some of them.

Dragon Union - an addendum for the fantasy roleplaying game
by Darrick D.
Publisher: D-oom Products
Date Added: 07/16/2015 08:00:07
Dragon Union - an addendum for the fantasy roleplaying game I didn't know what I was getting, but agreed to review this complimentary PDF. My first thought was "This is strange." My second being, "This is interesting." Third, "This is quite good." So, what is it exactly? A game within a game, sort of. Not exactly rules for managing a party of PCs but also exactly that. Obviously, this is difficult for me to describe. Let me start again... Most fantasy RPGs begin with some kind of quest or at least a whiff of adventure, gold, helping the helpless, etc. At this point, play just kind of starts and the characters find their way to where they're going. The actual PC dynamics goes by the wayside when they enter the dungeon. Dragon Union is a fun way of shining a light on the often overlooked interpersonal "stuff" that goes on (or should go on) when we're not paying attention. If you're a fighter... assuming you even get to play the fighter (there are rules for that, too), it's not just swinging a sword and having more hit points. O...

Search for Lost Legacy 2: By Water's Mirror

Search for Lost Legacy 2: By Water's Mirror An Endzeitgeist.com review The long-delayed second part of the Search for Lost Legacy adventure arc clocks in at 48 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 44 pages of content, so let's take a look! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. ... .. . All right, still here? Having succeeded in the first module, the settlement Krisen, now complete with statblock, is still suffering from an imperceivable pall - the dread wizard Vargon, caught between the state of lichdom and mortality, is still in stasis and still, his descendant seeks to unearth the power of the fallen archmage. Having braved the mine and reopened it, it is time for the PCs to venture further below, into level 2 of the strange complex hidden beneath the soil of Krisen's mountains, with perhaps diplomatic contact established with gillmen further providing a means to gather i...

Remarkable Races Submerged: The Sunken Relluk

Remarkable Races Submerged: The Sunken Relluk An Endzeitgeist.com review This racial pdf clocks in at 15 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1/2 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 11.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! The Relluk-race as presented in Alluria Publishing's Remarkable Races-series has always been a favorite of mine in concept and imagery rather than in mechanical execution - strange, headless, crystal-topped living constructs that actually are balanced? Nice! The Sunken Relluk is more than a modification of serial numbers, though - beyond a modified imagery that makes the massive Tiki-style masks with bifurcated arms, the sunken relluks do sport some unique modifications. Racial stat-wise, they get +2 Con and Cha, -2 Dex, racial buoyancy +25 and immunity to pressure (if using the Cerualean Seas-rules), are medium and have a swim speed of 40 ft. Sunken relluks do have a constitution score and have less immunities - they "only" receive immunity to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, pe...

Five Elements: A Fate Core Magic System I like the idea, but there's just not enough of it. It feels half-finished, like all the groundwork has been laid out but not much else.

Aperita Arcana: fantasy for Fate Core
by Alex W.
Publisher: Ebon Gryphon Games
Date Added: 07/15/2015 23:01:59
Aperita Arcana: fantasy for Fate Core If your group likes the ideas of FATE Core but just wishes there was a bit more crunch for them to delve into, then this is the product for you. Just as advertised, it presents a lot of elements that should be familiar to any experienced Dungeons & Dragons player, but reworked to better fit FATE Core's way of doing things. The way the book handles races is very creative. Races matter again, everyone just isn't a re-skinned human. And there are lots of races to choose from! Aside from your standard fantasy selections, there's stuff like Lamias, Nymphs, Tanukis, and a bunch of stuff I've never even heard of before but look fun to play. I think the most important asset it brings to the table is its rules for magic items and spellcasting. FATE Core does have some rules for those to a certain extent, but they're very touch-and-go. This presents some solid groundwork and gives you a great selection of items. Aside from that, it's filled with a lot of fantastic artwork. It's monochro...

Hyperspace Messenger 04 - Skills

Hyperspace Messenger 04 - Skills Great product, adds a nice, simple and yet versatile skill system to the White Star RPG. I'm happy to have this product and can't wait to use it in my games. It really allows for a nice bit of versatility between characters. White Star is a rules lite game, but it is still nice to have a bit of differentiation between characters. Hyperspace Messenger 04 - Skills allows that while still keeping to the rules lite feel of the game.
