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
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Magpie Games
Date Added: 09/22/2016 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
by Olivier S.
Publisher: GRAmel
Date Added: 09/22/2016 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.

The Cruel Empire of Tsan Chan
by Raymond W.
Publisher: Chaosium
Date Added: 09/22/2016 02:40:44
The Cruel Empire of Tsan Chan *The Cruel Empire of Tsan Chan* is a wonderfully inventive extrapolation of a future Mythos setting where Cthulhu emerges to begin an apocalyptic reign of psychotic madness, and the titular Tsan Chan Empire becomes the primary surviving human civilization. But this is not a story of plucky survivors who prevail against daunting odds - appropriately for a setting with Old Ones stomping around the Earth, things are only slightly less awful for the time being, and doom seems assured. It's very much in keeping with a Lovecraftian interpretation of the future, where our choice is extinction or transforation into something terrible and alien. This is also the primary weakness of *The Cruel Empire of Tsan Chan* as a campaign setting: it's bleak as hell. There are no happy endings in Tsan Chan, even less so than in your typical CoC campaign. Some groups will definitely be into this, but it might grow old, after a while. Personally, I would prefer to use TCEoTC as some kind of alternate...

W20 The Poison Tree
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 09/22/2016 00:18:01
W20 The Poison Tree Was actually excited to pick this up as the Shadow Lords are one of my 3 favorite tribes. When I read it though it felt as if the author never read the WtA corebook or even glanced at the SL tribe book. Felt like he was just throwing out terms here and there to make you feel it was a WtA book. The book was entertaining and some parts resonated with the WtA/WoD vibe. Other parts felt out of place. Overall not bad, not great. Mediocre.

Bard
by Dorian Y.
Publisher: Barrel Rider Games
Date Added: 09/21/2016 21:45:23
Bard I like my Bards like I like the economy. No magic. This bard is perfect. The saving throws and ac are not explicitely stated. Instead you are told to treat the bard like a thief at the same level. That was a good decision because it means that you can incorporate this bard in any system (swords and wizardry, basic fantasy, LL, etc) and you know that it will remain balanced with the other classes. The bard is simply a thief with a different set of abilities like mimicry and sleight of hand that improve as the levels go up. The bard is also allowed to use some of the weapons of a fighter. I feel like this bard is very close to the one discussed 40 years ago in the strategic review. I am very pleased. With this I consider Swords and Wizardry Complete... well... complete....

Joan of Arc, Protocol Game Series 3
by Scott V.
Publisher: post world games
Date Added: 09/21/2016 16:19:14
Joan of Arc, Protocol Game Series 3 This was the the first game we played in the Protocol game series. This is a very fun and tense game. The story played out with many plot twits and was all around a blast. With the card drawing mechanic that the game engine runs on it ensures that no game will be played out the same. I can't recommend this game or series of games enough.

Hybrid Class: Armjack

Hybrid Class: Armjack I like the level of detail included in this hybrid class. An armjack would be a lot of fun to play in both a campaign of wide, sweeping battles, or a dungeon crawl with close associates.

Cepheus Engine System Reference Document I think this is an exceptional peice of work. I am a Classic Traveller fan and still play a Classic game. This makes me wanna switch to this system. It is like open source software instead of using microsoft!!! I really like what this platform with its Open Game License is capable of doing for all of the amazing writers out there familiar with the Traditional Science Fiction 2D6 system. Most Excellent work !! 5 Stars!!!

Vigilantes of Porphyra There's a lot of cool stuff in here, but it feels kinda limited. I'm used to KOP stuff, so it felt like there was some lacking content, even if the stuff inside was pretty good.

[ICONS]The Super Villain Handbook Deluxe Edition
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Fainting Goat Games
Date Added: 09/20/2016 21:47:53
[ICONS]The Super Villain Handbook Deluxe Edition Conclusion: I loved the Basic Edition so much I named it one of my Top 6. This book tops that, expanding from 98 pages to a whopping 231 pages, written with both love and thought by Jason Tondro. I recommend it for any supers GM and anyone interested in the structure that has molded some of the finest villains in comic book history. Now if we could just get Mr. Tondro's Field Guide to Superheroes in print as well... For my full review, please visit http://mostunreadblogever.blogspot.com/2016/09/tommys-take-o-
