Blades in the Dark
by Karl M.
Publisher: One Seven
Date Added: 02/21/2017 14:58:09
Blades in the Dark My new favorite RPG. Best thing since Apocalypse World. This is still what I would consider a Rules Light system although there are more rules here than AW but they do such a wonderful job structuring the play and laying down more "track" than the players can run down so it's always leaving you wanting more. The One More Turn idea so lovingly a part of Civilization video games is here so strongly you can taste it. The system is a limited dice pool with lots of fun options. The world is crisp and lively with lots of options and room for what ever your group would like to add. It's light enough detailed to give you an idea for yourself but not enough detail to tie you down to pages and pages of lore. This system looks to be a new standard model, John should have coined a system with this when he published it deserves it. ...

7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: John Wick Presents
Date Added: 02/21/2017 13:36:22
7th Sea Core Rulebook (Second Edition) The opening fiction sets the scene for the sort of epic swashbuckling action this game inspires... indeed the cover layout, looking like a film poster, suggests the cinematic exploits the party can perform. Wit, swordplay, acrobatics, poise and sheer adventurous fun is what this game is all about! Chapter 1: Welcome to 7th Sea sets the scene. Swashbuckling, sorcery, piracy, adventure, diplomacy, intrigue, romance, revenge, archæology and exploration all have their place in this almost-17th-century-Europe where new ideas challenge accepted dogma, lost secrets are coming to light, and dramatic swordplay carries the day and often wins fair lady too (unless she's the one waving a sword around...). There's a brief explanation of what role-playing is all about, and how the party are designed to be Heroes with a capital H - they may be rogues or rascals, they may dice with the law, but they are not evil people. We'll leave that to the Villains, thank you very much. There's a very brief ove...

Vulcan Class Logistical Production Unit # Well thought out, with useful information and suggestions for both Ref and Player. Even thug there are no deckplans included it isnt a problme for this particular vessel. Since it is likely that every vessel of this type will be different and players will not be spending a great deal of tie aboard the vessel. A Quick tuhmbnail sketch of the interior created by the Ref should be all a game session might need.

Ryuutama : Natural Fantasy Roleplay
by Sam H.
Publisher: KOTODAMA HEAVY INDUSTRIES
Date Added: 02/21/2017 12:46:17
Ryuutama : Natural Fantasy Roleplay This is an excellent and charming little game. The art's uniformly great and the rules hang together well. It's a simple game, best suited for beginning players or groups who're interested in something lighter. I usually run much "darker" or at least more serious games and Ryuutama offers a charming alternative. I ran it over the course of two sessions with five players (all of them experienced in RPGs) and I will say that with that the "balance" seems to break down in the travel minigame. With enough characters there are a good number of combos to mitigate most failures. The enemy types provided in the base game also don't provide much of a challenge to that many characters, unless you throw in quite a few of them. This wasn't a huge problem for me--combat's not really the point of the game, nor is grueling travel always desirable. But the occasional dash of peril is still important, even to a gentle game like this. Sticking with three player characters might be the best strategy, unt...

Psychopod

Publisher: Rarr! I'm A Monster Publishing
Date Added: 02/21/2017 12:46:09
Psychopod Bill D. gave a perfect review. This one is superfluous. But if you want to read a second review... I love Psychopod. At first I said wtf is this, then I realized this is what Steve Jackson used to do in the 1970s: design brilliant (mini) games. SJ would have put it in a baggie with some cardboard chits and a folded hex sheet and charged $6-8 back then (e.g., Ogre, Car Wars, Melee, Wizard). SJ is still selling those same old brilliant pieces of pop art, gussified and commercialized for the modern buyer for $20+. Here you have everything you would get from a SJ (mini) masterpiece, except you have to do some minor assembly. All the essentials are there. And, if the concept is the right one for you, you will be excited to add your own energy to make gameplay phenomenal. How do you know whether Psychopod is the right concept for you, though? If you read this far and have $1, you've answered the question for yourself. But, to help a poor gamer out, if you like sci-fi and/or horror movi...

Classic Fantasy Expert Set - TDM501

Classic Fantasy Expert Set - TDM501 Design Mechanism does it again. Here are rules for PSIONICS. If you remember AD&D, you remember that Psionics were part nightmare, part party, part... well, you get the idea... Now, we can have MIND FLAYERS... Errr... Sorry... MIND SLAYERS... in D100. These are the star villains of any campaign... even when dealing with level taking monsters in the old school editions... Here are creatures that not only eat your brain... but steal your mind... or worse, control those who work for and with you. Now you can take your old editions that detailed these aggressive, dimension hopping creatures... and bring them into your D100 world. Imagine it... Orcs, Hobgoblins, etc... and Dark Elves... just pawns of a far more villainous evil. Cthulian by nature... these are the stuff of real nightmares... they are coming to eat your brain... after they steal your mind and turn everyone against you. I look forward to setting D100 players against them... and their plots for multiversal domin...

Legendary Assassins

Publisher: Legendary Games
Date Added: 02/21/2017 09:10:27
Legendary Assassins An Endzeitgeist.com review This supplement clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 3 pages of advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 14 pages of content, so let's take a look! The assassin-PrC has captured the minds of gamers and GMs alike ever since its 2nd edition kit...but, alas, if there is one thing that holds true for the concept, it's that its rules-representation standard in 3.X and, subsequently, the Pathfinder-iteration, just don't do the job that well. The pathfinder PrC is hampered by having been released at a very early stage in the system, which rendered it...well, not too captivating, as it inherited the weaknesses of 3.X's takes on the concept. From Kobold Quarterly's second issue back in the day to Green Ronin's highly evocative Assassin's Handbook back in the day, there have been many attempts of making an assassin base cl...

Race Options: Dwarves

Race Options: Dwarves An Endzeitgeist.com review This little pdf clocks in at 9 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 page SRD, leaving us with ~7.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! All right, so we begin this pdf with a ton of alternate racial traits to customize dwarves - unless I have miscounted, a total of 12 such alternate racial traits is included. Nice touch: The base racial stats of the race have been reprinted here for your convenience, but more interestingly, the pdf contains 3 suggestions for racial subtypes and which respective alternate racial traits to use to epitomize them, sporting some nice fluff as supplemental material. All right, so what do these alternate racial traits cover? Well, they cover, for example, training in medium and heavy armor that allows the dwarf in question to add +1 natural AC when wearing them, replacing stability with a different kind of dwarven resilience. Gaining a bonus to atk when outnumbered instead of hatred also ties in well with the flavor of the dwa...

Cults of Celmae: The Ashen King
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wayward Rogues Publishing
Date Added: 02/21/2017 09:07:36
Cults of Celmae: The Ashen King An Endzeitgeist.com review The first pdf depicting the diverse cults of the Celmae-setting (also known as Shattered Skies), clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 11 pages of content, so let's take a look! The believers of the Ashen King's creed hold the conviction that the cataclysm that shattered the lands of Celmae, the central, original catastrophe of the setting, was but a means of staving off a yet worse apocalypse. Worshiped, unsurprisingly, by the duergar and similar underworld-dwelling creatures, the creed of the Ashen King, fully reproduced here, begins with the words: "We follow the shadowed path of He who destroyed the world and saved it." - yes, this is indeed an interesting duality. The aforementioned beings receive further coverage and, if you will, contextualized origin-myths: Adherers, for example, once were leper-bandits, transformed by their worship of this deity. Similarly, the kob...

Into the Mines of Moira: An Adventure for 5th Edition

Into the Mines of Moira: An Adventure for 5th Edition I played this and it has to be the most imaginative and well written adventure I've played in a long time. There was a perfect balance of roleplaying with action and fighting. Then enemies were imaginative and it left you feeling immersed in the world. The group I played with had some bad luck (hilarious critical fails) in the beginning, but we prevailed. If you are loking for a fun immersive adventure, this is for you.

Dragon Drop Adventures 5e I got this through the Kickstarter, so the price was slightly different for me. I am using these adventures as an easy way to introduce my son and his friends to D&D. I have only run The Bronze Bandits so far, but it was great. The adventures are simple to read, well written and the maps are brilliant. Excellent quality adventures, well worth the $20 price. Looking forward to seeing more from this publisher

DRAGONLOCK Ultimate: Dungeon Starter Set
by AJ P.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 02/21/2017 04:54:30
DRAGONLOCK Ultimate: Dungeon Starter Set I purchased an Anet A8 (prusa clone kitset made in China), put it together, sort of calibrated the print bed by eyeballing it and hoping for the best, and my first ever print was the door frame of the Dragonlock Dungeon starter set.. and it printed perfectly. Since then I have loaded files into Cura and printed out multiple tiles and lots of clips, and I am very happy. The files are easy to work with, the printer has no issues, I have cleaned up and painted a few of the tiles and they look fantastic, so, I have no complaints what so ever. After I print a load of dungeon tiles (what I consider to be a full modular set), I will print a load of furnishings, and then I will start on a cavern tile set, and then start on a village set. I figure this is going to be my printers primary job for the whole year! Extremely good value for money. Very practical design. Suitable for novice level skills. Broad range of optional extras and, I am sure, many more expansion sets to come. I wo...

A Meal fit for A King Honestly, this isn't very good. The writing is unimaginative and the style reminds me of how teenagers write when they are tasked with assignments at school. Saying that, it could be worse.
