Red Mists: Swords Against Sorcery
von Brian S.
Verlag: Gulf Road Games
Hinzugefügt am: 05/22/2016 19:17:26
Red Mists: Swords Against Sorcery Note for transparency's sake: I received a free copy of this game in exchange for a fair review. Pros: * Thematically on point with stories from Howard, Moorcock, Cook, or Norman. * Simple, elegant dice mechanic. * Effective task- to conflict-resolution system. Cons: * Amateurish presentation. * Thews. Really? Thews? * Grimdark darkness of the darkity dark doom. (But this is just personal preference!) I have to admit, at first blush I found myself a bit put off by Red Mists. Maybe it was the amateurish layout and giant-sized type. Perhaps it was the unsatisfying background detail right from the start. I suppose it could have been the use of the word Thews, which stood out as overly anachronistic in a game using words like Defiance, Instinct, and Reflexes for attribute names. (Does anyone say “Thews” any more?) The first time I glanced through the pages of Red Mists, I dreaded the idea of writing a review. Then I read it, the whole thing, and by the time the last pag...

Toypocalypse Falls
von James G.
Verlag: Top Rope Games
Hinzugefügt am: 05/22/2016 17:17:53
Toypocalypse Falls The mechanics are simple enough to put infront of a new player, and interesting enough to play with experianced players as well. I didnt like the "toy super powers" except for the physical based ones, and my players voted to not use them as well. We felt it was a bit of a stretch that a toy could move objects with their mind, but a toy having super strength for a single task was more realilistic. The world background, or fluff if you will, is interesting. It plays perfectly right into the 'Pixar Theory', which I didnt ignore. The apocolyptic setting, and the concept of toy religions based on childrens drawings or toy assembly instructions added a lot of fun and depth to the game world. I did find the looseness of the pregenerated adventures annoying. Being a more experianced GM I like wiggle room in pregen adventures, but a less experianced GM could become lost from the lack of structure in the sandbox like quests. All in all, I enjoyed it very much and my players had an awesome ...

Undeath - A Dark Tales Rpg
von Simon A.
Verlag: FeralGames
Hinzugefügt am: 05/22/2016 08:59:47
Undeath - A Dark Tales Rpg Undeath is creepy and gorey and dark! The idea that you are saving your own soul from oblivion by "harvesting" others is weird and more intersting than just collecting money or mana or xp. I love how everything is connected and your character builds and grows despite being dead. Simple concept that can become as complex as the players and GM want it to be. Living weapons are awesome - a blade that thinks and feels and is joined to it's user!?! Wild! Also the artwork is very professional but with a cool "sketchy" quality that really works with the ragged vision for the dark game world. Beautiful pencil work that ranges from heroic (depite the heroes being already dead) to downright frightening. Wait til you get a look at the Ash Daemon- the stuff of nightmares! Feral games has created another fully realized game world with the ability to jump right in as well as tons of nuance and subtlety for those who love detail. All beautifully presented (including a slick character s...

Test of the Demonweb (3.0)
von Megan R. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 05/22/2016 07:01:31
Test of the Demonweb (3.0) More Drow fun for your party as they encounter some who wish to experiment with novel fighting techniques agaist surface-dwellers... The background for the DM introduces Arda Pharn, a drow cleric with an experimental turn of mind, and explains what she's up to. The adventure can be a side-trek, with this being the party's sole encounter with her, or you may devise a whole plot arc around her. She's not after killing her test subjects - it does make data collection a bit difficult after all! Several hooks are provided to get the party involved, and there is some information to be gathered (much of it misleading) mostly based around an adventuring group that has recently disappeared whilst out exploring. This adventure begins when they arrive at Arda's 'laboratory' complex, you will have to organise getting there and any adventures along the way. This complex uses uses a modified version of the Queen's Dungeon map from the Map-a-Week feature on the Wizards of the Coast website, ...

Slayers of the Great Serpent This is a solid adventure and a good start to what looks to be a fun adventure path to both run and play. It definitely had made me interested in finding the adventure modules that follow it.

The Shadow Road Rescue - A System Agnostic RPG Adventure
von Marco v. D.
Verlag: It'sjustsoup.com
Hinzugefügt am: 05/21/2016 10:03:31
The Shadow Road Rescue - A System Agnostic RPG Adventure To make it short: I really tried to give that strange table-idea a chance, but even after reading through the whole book it still simply is a big total mess of lines, colored icons and text of different sizes and format arranged in many small tables per page. Very annyoing and very hard to read. I don't think this idea will get anyone to like it, since you'll need a lot of reading practice to make any use of it - and not get a headache - but then why should you? That table-style isn't used anywhere else and a normal two-column standard style reads MUCH better and faster. The story is quite simple. I think the whole thing was about that strange table-idea....

Frontier Explorer - Issue 16

Verlag: Frontier Explorer
Hinzugefügt am: 05/21/2016 10:00:54
Frontier Explorer - Issue 16 Another great issue from the folks I have come to think of as "the Toms" and the still-vibrant Star Frontiers community. If this is your first issue and you're wondering if this is pre- or post-Zebulon's Guide material... it's kind of both, and most of any issue is relevant either way. The comics, artwork, and fiction is all good enough to stand on its own, even if you're not a player- if the Dralasite jokes go over your head, you're probably short and have three legs anyway. This time around, a new(ish) race, new gear & weapons, a new megacorp, and new vehicles. Campaign tips, a book review, and cultural expansions round things out. Stuff like this is why Star Frontiers isn't just another nostalgia RPG. It's alive, and relevant, and still a heck of a lot of fun after all these years. Grab the back issues while you're here!...

The Temple of Issoth The temple of Issoth delivers a fun Solitare adventure for Warriors. It comes with 3 pregenerated characters if you do not have time to make one of your own. I have actually strung this adventure and some other solos into a saga for my warrior characters.

The Genius Guide to More Witch Talents

Verlag: Rogue Genius Games
Hinzugefügt am: 05/21/2016 05:45:37
The Genius Guide to More Witch Talents An Endzeitgeist.com review The inevitable expansion book for the talented witch clocks in at 25 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 21 pages of content - quite a lot, so let's dive in! After getting once again the patented wall of text (which also categorizes them by utility) before diving into the new edges - and there are no cookie-cutter edges in this one - we begin with the complex (and awesome) curse bag: An item-class into which the witch can put all kinds of nasty curses and enhance them - these enhancements are concisely codified by the item's spell level increase for creation purposes. Utterly iconic, seen in fiction and opens a ton of cool tactics and tricks - Brilliant! Cooler still: Being a curseslinger and firing cursed bullets at your foes! Yes, using curse bag rules. SO. AWESOME. I'm going to adapt that item class for my etherslinger in my home game... Gaining the ability to summon either infernal or celestial serv...

In The Company of Dragons (5E)

In The Company of Dragons (5E) An Endzeitgeist.com review The conversion to 5e of the massive book on playable dragons clocks in at 29 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, which leaves us with 24 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we? Okay, so the first thing you need to know as a 5th edition player - the In the Company of...-series started off as a PFRPG-exclusive line of unusual races that codified monstrous races as balanced player options, often utilizing a class to represent progression into becoming a proper full-blown member of that race. This class was optional and thus allowed you to play the race sans progressing in it, at the cost of losing the ability-progression you'd associate with the respective monstrous entity. In the Company of Dragons was arguably the biggest of these books and will become even bigger soon, with an upgraded kickstarted version waiting in the wings. You have to know a couple of other things: I LOATHE the concept ...

Sir Reginald Lichlyter's Trusty Tavern Tome

Verlag: Fat Goblin Games

Sir Reginald Lichlyter's Trusty Tavern Tome An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive supplement clocks in at 62 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a massive 57 pages of content, so let's take a look! After a brief introductory prose and a short history on alcohol, we begin this pdf with a chapter that is aptly named "How to get drunk" -and if you've taken a look at the GMG, you'll know that the rules leave something to be desired there - hence, this pdf codifies drinks in sizes - basically, from shot to huge kegs, you get the respective number of shots contained. Much like Raging Swan Press' excellent Barroom Brawls, this pdf focuses on stages of inebriation - but with a different emphasis. Where RSP's booklet took a look at the slightly inebriated states, this one takes a closer look at truly plastered conditions, providing 3 additional grades of being utterly drunk. But wait, you say - there is a difference in potency! Well, yeah, and the pdf accounts ...
