Through the Breach RPG - Core Rules
by Craig B.
Publisher: Wyrd Miniatures
Date Added: 10/04/2017 07:59:43
Through the Breach RPG - Core Rules TTB 2e is more a consolidation and revision of the 1e Fated Almanac (players handbook) and Fatemasters Almanac (GMs handbook) rather than a true second edition. There have been lots of small improvements throughout the book, but the core character creation and gameplay remains the same, meaning that all the 1e supplements remain compatible. In a few cases some of the sourcebook rules are now part of the core, but by and large 2e is actually a better fit for the sourcebooks than 1e, due to an update and rebalancing of the core pursuits (classes), talents and equipment to better compare with those in the sourcebooks. The key things I liked about it were: Much improved background and history section. While the in-charater version in the 1e books was nice, the 2e version is much more complete and fleshed out. As a bonus for fans of the world, it contains all the events from the Malifaux 2e expansion books to date, as well as the background/setup for The Other Side. It could be con...

Alternate Paths: Martial Characters 2: Fight Smarter

Alternate Paths: Martial Characters 2: Fight Smarter An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive installment of the Alternate Path-series clocks in at 79 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, which leaves us with an impressive 75 pages of content, so let’s take a look! Okay, so the Alternate Path-series has carved a rather unique niche for itself in the context of splatbooks, focusing less on just adding to the pile of options and instead, showcasing some experimental and rather unique options – this time around, smart combat is the theme, and as such, the book begins with its mission statement and advice for the GM to make combats more interesting – and to not penalize players for not taking certain skills. This, among others, mentions the importance of terrain and skill challenges, the all but forgotten option to yield in combat and the like – as an aside, for skill challenges, check out Everyman Gaming’s phenomenal Skill Challenged Handbook – it should be core. It’s that good. Anyways, milestone-based leveli...

vs. Ghosts

vs. Ghosts An Endzeitgeist.com review This game clocks in at 64 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 58 pages of content. It should be noted that the pages are laid out for the digest-size (A5/6’’ by 9’’), which means that, if your sight’s good enough, you can fit up to 4 of the pages on a single sheet. So, what is vs. Ghosts? To put it simply, it’s a game hat lets you play in a Ghostbusters/Supernatural-esque scenario; whether you prefer grim realism or a fun, kid-friendly Scoobie-Doo-esque playstyle depends on your personal taste, though the often really FUNNY text herein and the comic-style artwork does emphasize the less serious takes on the tropes. The GM (Ghostmaster) is…the GM. To play, you eed one deck of playing cards, sans Joker. Character creation is simple: A character has 5 Attributes: Offense and Defense are used to attack/defend in physical combat. Mental is the attribute for ...

Infinite Dungeon: The Halls of the Eternal Moment Level 4 - The Clockwork Catastrophe (PFRPG)

Infinite Dungeon: The Halls of the Eternal Moment Level 4 - The Clockwork Catastrophe (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review The fourth level of The Halls of the Eternal Moment clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 14 pages of content, so let’s take a look! As always, we begin with notes on the general property of the dungeon’s level – walls, light, etc. After level 3’s relatively tame treatment of PCs, the fourth level is back to the attrition tactics – 40% chance of being attacked, per hour. OUCH. Now here’s a mind-bender: Once the alarm is triggered, the dungeon RAW becomes easier – the ambushing default encounter is replaced with a reactivation of dormant constructs, which are finite. One note: The statblocks provided for these encounters sport some glitches: Formatting (bolding inconsistent) and also ones that influence the rules. On the plus-side, a total of 6 ghostly phenomena (harmless dressing to enhance atmosphere) is provided. Utterly puzzling: Remember how level 3 had temporal anom...

Blood and Bone

Publisher: Arcana Games
Date Added: 10/03/2017 22:31:28
Blood and Bone Full Review at [https://dieheart.net/blood-and-bone-review/](https://diehea-
rt.net/blood-and-bone-review/). Blood and Bone (BnB) spouts "Game of Thrones meets Dungeons and Dragons" as its tagline. It is a dark and gritty new fantasy RPG with interesting mechanics and a vibrant setting. The core mechanics are streamlined and easy to learn. But they are still complicated enough to make gameplay and character advancement engaging. BnB is a classless and skill-based system. It smells like D&D 5e in a "give me the same - but different" vein. Mechanics lean towards combat and giving characters enough options to shine in such situations. It features a classic distribution of narrative rights. The world appeals with a dark tone and flavorful descriptions. Player characters can have supernatural *Blood* powers, although the game claims to be without magic. The artwork is amazing. It also includes strong female characters (no chain-mail bikinis) and a few people of color. The loo...

Maze Rats
by Max V.
Publisher: Questing Beast Games
Date Added: 10/03/2017 21:55:07
Maze Rats I really enjoy running and playing Maze Rats. It is fast to get going, easy to explain, light enough to explain on the go but robust enough for a variety of situations that might come up. It is my go to for one-shots, but I also like it for campaigns. Seperately, I love the random tables. These alone are definitely worth paying for, and bring value to any game that you are playing. I use Maze Rats when I am prepping 5e, Dungeon World, and just about every other game I run.

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e) A City on the Edge is very much like a Faction choose your own adventure. Each one hour adventure easily takes 1 1/2 hours and is Background rich. All in all a very enjoyable adventure to introduce your PC's to Port Nyanzaru.

Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium
by Chemlak G.
Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 10/03/2017 17:57:35
Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium The Forest Kingdom Compendium is a compilation and expansion of the various supplements Legendary Games have released which support (in typical Third Party fashion) the Kingmaker Adventure Path. At this point I will immediately say - if you don't have, don't want, and aren't going to play that AP, that should NOT prevent you getting this book. It's generic enough (within the areas it focuses) to be useful. **The Good** There's Everything. Okay, that might be a tiny exageration, but not much of one. It's called The Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium. And the only one of those words that's even a little bit extraneous is "The". Archetypes, feats, prestige classes, spells, magic items, fey, royal tournaments, countries, characters, heroes, monsters and two adventures to supplement the AP. All of them with a foresty or kingdomy slant. Subsystems FTW. I'm a fan of subsytems. I've been writing my own since the 2nd Edition D&D days (most of them not very good!), and I love reading new ...

OSR Deluxe CHARACTER SHEET - free I absolutely love this old school style character sheet for BECMI! The notebook paper background is a wonderful asthetic touch and adds to the overall "flavour" of the sheet. Great work!

Ebonclad: Gallery of Thieves

Ebonclad: Gallery of Thieves Dan's work in Gallery of Thieves is like his work in all of his other projects: top notch. Tyr'Aiglos was a character idea that I had buzzing around my head for some time but never got to fleshing out since I generally am the one DM'ing. I trusted Dan to really flesh out and give Tyr'Aiglos a life of his own, and Dan delivered. I could not be happier with how it turned out.

Ebonclad - A Thieves' Guild Setting & Adventures Ebonclad is a rich and fulfilled setting for D&D 5E. Whether you are looking for more options for your players, fleshing out of chase and heist rules or a beautiful setting with a fantastic thieves guild built into the fabric, then Ebonclad is the product for you. Dan puts out nothing that is not high quality content that is well balanced and excellently written.

Abandoned Wagon Paper Model

Publisher: Dave Graffam Models
Date Added: 10/03/2017 14:39:27
Abandoned Wagon Paper Model I recently dusted this off and built one of these again and I am glad I did. I remember when I first got the model. It was one of the first kits I bought and I really got excited. I was running an AD&D campaign with a caravan, so I printed three of these out right away. That was a mistake. I had built paper models before, but nothing as complicated as this kit. The directions were not as clear as they could be, as far as a beginner was concerned, and things did not go well. I ended up completing only two of the models, and neither of them were exactly what I had pictured going into the project. Some months later when I had more experience I went back and built a wagon following the directions and understood them clearly, but that was only after having gotten more experience. Building the kit now after not having seen it for a couple of years, I recognized a few of the areas where the directions were a bit, "ahem", less than clear, but still had no trouble assembling a beautiful, sturdy...

Steampunk Building No. 1 Paper Model This is an easy build with good reinforcement that makes it a sturdy model that will see a lot of gameplay. The hard part will be choosing which skin elements to use. There are a wide variety of them and they combine in so many beautiful ways there is very little chance of finding one favorite look among them. You're going to end up building more than one of this model. I know I am.

Fletcher's Shop Paper Model I just finished this kit and it is very nice! I found the roof a bit fiddly, but I probably should have realized that the configuration would be something different from the image of the completed kit. A test fit probably would have helped, too. It still went on fine and looks good. The model is very sturdy. I was a little disappointed that there was no half-timbered skin option, but the three skins (two bricks, one stone) and optional stucco covering are all first class. The windows on this model are particularly nice. The kit also comes with a bonus wheelbarrow that is easily assembled and looks super. It comes in two versions, as well. This kit is definitely well worth the price....

Cabin Paper Model This is a true gem. I really like the versitility of the model and the simplicity of the construction. It is also very sturdy and should last through many hours of gameplay. The multiple skins allow me to use it in fantasy, steampunk, and even frontier settings. That is a lot of value in one slim package. I've built one and have already printed another. I plan to have a total of at least four. The only thing I could ask for is a base plate for the design that would be as versitile as the model itself. That would make it perfect....
