Tiny Frontiers

Tiny Frontiers The system was nice and clean and had a nice host of setting ideas. I also liked the Space Craft and Mecha thoughts. The 'systems for generating planets" really were nothing but a random table or two. The financial system seemed to be an afterthought without any guidance. Unfortunately, for me, the system really failed in two big areas - advancement and equipment. Most role playing games give players a chance to advance their character and to improve. This system is one that pretty much what you start with is what you end with - there is no advancement. While I think this is fine for short convention games, I believe it falls flat in campaign settings. In addition, due to the limits in weapon use there is no future Seal equivalent, dangerous in long range, short range and melee weapons - only the specialist with one of these areas. There were no skills - only professions - with the onus placed on the GM and player as to coming up with appropriate skills a profession might have. Tho...

Pregen Characters: Wood Elf Ranger (5e) The pregen character packs are extremely useful. I personally wish they were also equipped with appropriate magic items.

Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells
por Andrzej S.
Publisher: Vigilance Press
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/23/16 11:30:36
Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells is a very good supplement to main rulebook. The biggest advantage of Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells is the presentation style of magic and description of the supernatural world. Magic, supernatural creatures and mythic places only complement existing information - are not intended to replace them. That's important to me - I can't imagine a setting about martial artist where mages and exorcists are more powerful. Anyone interested in reading polish language review (or digging to it via Google translate) can read full text here: http://3k10.pl/2016/09/23/tianxia-spirits-beasts-spells/...

Crown of Kings - The Sorcery Campaign
por Raymond W.
Publisher: Arion Games
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/23/16 01:41:52
Crown of Kings - The Sorcery Campaign As a fan (from way back) of the original *Sorcery!* series, as well as the recent excellent video game adaptation, I was very disappointed by *Crown of Kings - The Sorcery Campaign*. This adaptation from gamebook to tabletop RPG campaign ends up being far too literal. What worked as a gamebook in 1985 does not translate well to the roleplaying tabletop in 2016. The GM info on how to handle each encounter is straight out of the book, with no explanations for seemingly illogical NPC actions. While this behavior may have contributed to a kind of unpredictable fairy tale logic in the original books, here it leaves a GM with little understanding of how to run an encounter that ends up straying outside the expectations of the text. The adventure is presented as a pure pointcrawl, with no notion of what to do if the adventurers try to travel overland. As an example, the PCs can creep by goblins and an ogre to infiltrate a goblin mine. If they are seen, they will be immediately attack...

Farm, Forge and Steam

Farm, Forge and Steam Food (and Metal) for Thought In Farm, Force, and Steam, Phillip MacGregor emphasizes the continuous evolution of past pre-industrial societies, and the ecological and technological constraints on these societies, in order to show how they could affect hypothetical societies, especially fantasy ones. I would like to have seen more discussion of actual societies. While there's ongoing debate over Roman population, there something closer to consensus about late medieval and early modern population, town sizes, trade links, etc. I would also like to have seen notes on plausible town sizes and army sizes, since both are often exaggerated. I would also like to add that there were towns/cities, such as Cahokia, and civilization in the Mississippi plains before European contact. If you're interested in the topic, I would suggest this book, and I would suggest looking at the works of Brian Fagan for a broad overview of anthropology, Marvin Harris if they are interested in another cultural...

Darkfast Dungeons: Loathsome Fishmen

Publisher: Okumarts Games
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/22/16 18:58:05
Darkfast Dungeons: Loathsome Fishmen Dave has produced another excellent set of paper minis, useful for his Darkfast Dungeons game, any other fantasy game, Lovecraftian Horror and Super Heroes (Finally a villian group for Namor and Aquaman!) The are the usual front and back we expect from Dave, with a good selection of poses: 4 priests, a figure with a morning-star, 2 with swords, 7 with pole arms, and two crossbows. These are, to me at least, the easiest to cut out figures that Dave has produced. If you are thinking of giving his minis a try, this would be a great starting set....

Genies (5E)
por Customer Name Withheld [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Tribality Publishing
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/22/16 13:31:52
Genies (5E) Genies for Fifth Edition is not, as one might expect from the title, a book of genie-type creatures (though it does include four genies of legend) but rather primarily a book about genies and their magic. If you are thinking of including genies in your D&D Fifth edition game, this product, though short, will give you useful ideas and tools to build from. Genies for Fifth Edition is for D&D 5e by Colin McLaughlin and published by Tribality Publishing is about genies and their magic. The layout is clear with thematic color photographs for illustrations. It begins with a brief look at how genies perceive the world and the four elemental courts they are organized into, and what they want. It is short but evocative and provides the framework for the rest of the book. Next are four genies of legend, each one a powerful exemplar of its element and has their own lair, briefly described, complete with lair actions. These are tough (CR 16) beings so not everyday encounters but good ...

Delta Green: Handler's Screen

Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing

Delta Green: Handler's Screen This is a very professional piece of work. Apart from one minor typo, the quality is excellent, the illustrations gorgeous and the layout very easy to read. The scenario traditionally joined to the screen is good for beginners, relatively forgiving, although it might need a bit of tweeking for complete newbies. The starting rules are simple yet complete enough for any game master to start even a small campaign. All in all a very good buy, highly recommended.

Size Matters

Size Matters "Overall my thoughts on Size Maters is this is a solid purchase! There are enough ideas here that you could have this adventure take place in several different locations and all of them would prove fun and virtually all the critters listed here could still be used most any setting you might think of." From my blog review at Runkle Plays Game. I did a mini review of my blog of this project. It hits the mark and knocks it out of the park with a "Honey I shrunk the kids" idea of a one shot game session....

Urban Shadows
por Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Magpie Games
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/22/16 07:50:27
Urban Shadows Urban Shadows is a grand attempt at making an urban fantasy / dark fantasy / World of Darkness game with the Powered By the Apocalypse engine. The social and political ties and consequences feel real and heavy. The enviroment (a dark, living city) also feels real, moving behind nearly every move and character. If you love Apocalypse World, Monster of the Week or Monster Hearts and want to take that game to the next level of complexity and political-maneuvering, this is the system for you. All that being said, this game is very move-heavy. There are moves for every character, playbook moves for each different "class," story moves, and faction moves. The story moves a few and infrequent, but it's still a lot to remember and even muddle through, especially if your players are new to gaming or used to a game like Dungeon World or Monster Hearts. I would recommend this game if you are really into the Powered By the Apocalypse game engine, indie games, or dark fantasy titles. If you're l...

Beasts of the Dominions
por Olivier S.
Publisher: GRAmel
Fecha en que fue añadido: 09/22/16 07:14:07
Beasts of the Dominions You thought "Beasts of the Dominions" was a bestiary for "Beasts & Barbarians" ? Wrong ! I know... I wonder why they called this book "Beasts of the Dominions" since it contains the description of less than ten monsters... "Adventures in the Dominions" would have been far better, fot it is a collection of 10 short or medium-sized adventures. I must say I am not a big fan of the free B&B short adventures, for I think they don't manage to convey the thrill of Sword & Sorcery gaming, but here, they are quite compact so you won't get disappointed by most of the tales that this volume contains. For interested purchasers, here is a very short description : - "The betrayers of Rhybard" : The heroes must act as spies for a Borderlands governor; their mission is to infiltrate a powerful rebell band. Will they side with the brave rebells or remain loyal to the governor ? This adventure is vert dense, and those 10 pages provide stuff for several evenings. - "Lotus Spawn" : In Zandor, the...

Adventures in Middle-earth Player's Guide

Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.

Adventures in Middle-earth Player's Guide I ran this for my group and we all decided that this was now our preferred way to play D&D. The journey and fellowship systems are amazing and easily produce detailed and enjoyable adventures with little prep from the DM. The added virtues (which are basically feats) are epic and allow for some highly individual characters and gives the classes a lot of replayability.
