Malevolent and Benign
by Brent W.
Publisher: Expeditious Retreat Press
Date Added: 12/10/2017 14:49:04
Malevolent and Benign This tome is one of the top three OSR 1e Monster books out there. I'm not saying it's perfect, but it's close enough. And it does stay true to it's name as it has a good blend of both malevolent and benign critters unlike a few other out there. It feels like it fits OSR like a well worn pair of Boots of Striding & Springing.

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e)
by Adam G.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e) City on the Edge serves as a good introduction to Port Nyanzaru, a key location in Season 7 and Tomb of Annihilation. There is good variety, althought some of the encounters were pretty plain. I both played this and DM'd it in 4-hour slots (even though it is officially 5 hours of play), and it took significant planning to make the timing work. What I liked * The overall framing and some of the mini-adventures had good flavor. Players really get the feel of being in a large, steamy city on the edge of the jungle that has a wide variety of factions and political interests. I especially liked the flavor of mission 2 and mission 3, which were just different from the usual. * Lots of variety in locales and encounters. The party travels to different parts of the city and outside of the city. and encounters actually occur in diverse settings. * Some good roleplaying opportunity, especially with the faction heads. What I didn't like * The dinosaur race was confusing and got old quick...

DDEX2-06 Breath of the Yellow Rose (5e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDEX2-06 Breath of the Yellow Rose (5e) Breath of the Yellow Rose has great story content, an investigation, and lots of roleplay opportunities, but may be less interesting for players who prefer combat. It requires a reasonable amount of DM prep to keep track of the story and NPC threads, and the DM should plan ahead if time is limited. This can be a lot of fun with the right players and sufficient DM preparation. What I liked - * This adventure has exceptional roleplay opportunity. There is a good variety of NPCs, many that PCs need to get information out of. The author did a good job with gray boxes containing tips about roleplaying each of the NPCs. After running this adventure, I got super motivated to create my own PC hailing from Mulmaster. * The story and campaign tie-ins are strong. The adventure dives deep into politics and personalities in Mulmaster, and ties well in with other season 2 adventures. The cult that is the center of the adventure is both funny and sad, and most players should have context from m...

Fragged Empire - Core Rule Book

Fragged Empire - Core Rule Book Fragged Empire - Core Rule Book is a great game that is very simple to use. I am a huge fan of the "Theatre of the Mind" that the author has added into all his book to simplify combat and in my feeling makes the game less DM / Storyteller vs. Players. This is a great game and easy to start up with little to no time prep.

Fragged Seas Fragged Seas is very smartly done. The author wasted no space rehashing what was done in his core book. This book has all the story and everything you need to run a great game. It's worth the cost.

Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures
by Matt C.

Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures I've played RPGs before, but had never been DM until last week. Beyond the Wall gave me the perfect starting point and framework to build plots and stories around, and the playbooks were helpful for players who were completely new to RPGs. The simplified rules (compared to traditional D&D of various editions and Pathfinder) I found massively helpful, while still containing elements that I found familiar and was expecting, like ability scores, alignment, etc. The premise of all the PCs knowing each other and all living in the same village was helpful too, and makes the world seem more real, while giving plenty of opportunities for plot hooks and motivations. I really liked this, and after purchase I downloaded the other free materials that contain plenty of ideas for future adventures, how to build encounters, monsters, villains, and the like. There are a few elements here and there that aren't explained perfectly from a new DMs point of view (I had to read through how hit dice...

DDAL07-06 Fester and Burn (5e)
by David M.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 12/10/2017 01:18:31
DDAL07-06 Fester and Burn (5e) This is a great adventure. One of the most fun I've run. Lots of room for humor and a fair amount of roleplay potential. I ran this in a game store on a Saturday afternoon when nobody had any time restraints, so I wasn't trying to keep to the 2-hour runtime. So, I ended up running it in 3 1/2 hours. I think it could pretty easily been a 2 1/2 hours or less if I was in railroad mode. But my table was having a blast, so I just let the adventure run its course. The geometry of the final battle could have made a pretty quick TPK if a couple of the more powerfull spells would have been cast in the first couple rounds of the combat (I'll leave it at that). My table was a "weak" table - I think I had 3 level 5s, a level 6 and a level 8. However, the players wanted it run as an "average" level party and it was a pretty fair fight. They could have even had a bit more of a challenge at the end. All in all, a very fun time and universally loved by the entire table. My highest recommendation. ...

In Volo's Wake (5e)

In Volo's Wake (5e) I really liked being able to have my players interact with the high end monsters from Volo's guide, but I was annoyed by the lack of details inside the hag's cabin. When I initially prepared the adventure, I didn't notice that there was no description of any of the ten rooms, and I ended up having to make them up on the fly. A minor thing, for sure, but it would have been nice.

DDAL05-04 In Dire Need (5e) The story for this adventure develops well and gives the players challenges beyond combat, assunming they get the right random encounters. The set pieces offer a way around the potentially overwhelming combat of this module.

Races of the Outer Rim: the Omenoi I really like the concept of a lifeform evolving on a comet and the long cycles that of that comet on a multiple star systems. This race is not for the technically inclinded but makes up for it is style and mystisim. Well written and illistrated. I can't wait to add these guys as NPCs and possible PCs in the near future in my games.

DDAL05-05 A Dish Best Served Cold (5e) This is a good adventure, with a fair amount of role playing opportunities, a little bit of mystery, and a variety of options for combat and encounter solutions. This module tends to run over it's 2 hour design, unless you rush through things.

100 Oddities for a Sewer

100 Oddities for a Sewer Lol, there's something about this series that is just fun to read through even if not using every idea in this book. The artwork is great, the charts work, the seeds can lead to some great color for an encounter or an adventure itself. 94, easily the most unnerving thing I can imagine happening while investigating any of the other roll results. Great series, keep em coming.
