DDAL04-03 The Executioner (5e)

DDAL04-03 The Executioner (5e) [Minor spoilers below] This one is in rather raw state at the moment: - Player's motivation is not well defined. Threat of being kicked out from the village due to food shortage and early winter worked for my players, but wasn't very convincing. - There's a scenario when players avoid all combat (without outstanding roleplay), achieve pretty much nothing, and adventure ends. Not a very good experience. - Combat encounters scaling doesn't account for very good party preparedness for particular monsters in adventure. In other words there's no big bad monster which will be a challenge for party of 7 melee fighters with 2 paladins and a cleric. - Monetary output from adventure is rather low, especially if players bribe guards and have to cure lycanthropy. I managed to squeeze few moments of excitement from my players, but I'd say it was to my credit, not the adventure....

DDAL04-02 The Beast (5e) Perfect material for AL. Drammatic plot, well defined environment, decent combat enounters, easy to time-manage, good humor here and there, magic item players actually liked.

The Shade - A Dungeon World Playbook

The Shade - A Dungeon World Playbook Downloaded this today and have read through the playbook. Interesting class that, at first read, doesn't seem like it will be over powering to a DW game. Will have to see if I can work it in to my current DW game and give it a real test. The playbook is clear, easy to understand and once printed, the background does not over power the text (very nice). The cover really sets the mood for the character. The addition of the character specific magic items at the end are nice as well. Good job. As far as the character sheet goes.... well, it's barely functional, the type face is just WAY too small for me. Would really need to redesign this. Improve the use of the space you have. Lots of "dead" space on the first page, Stat blocks could be smaller to give even more space. The type size just doesn't cut it. An otherwise 4 star effort, I have to give it a 3....

Once Upon a Crime
by Philipp M.
Publisher: Wooden Vampire Games
Date Added: 04/24/2016 15:23:59
Once Upon a Crime First of all about the setting: Hell, the setting is amazing. In the style of The Wolf among us or the comic book series that Fables that inspired the game characters from classical fairytales get evicted from their homeland Arcadia and thrown into the dark reality of 1940s Noir world. I love that setting and there are a lot of good ideas included in the PDF how to fuse the genres together. Editing, Layout, …, overall presentation: I will make it short: The overall presentation of ‘Once upon a crime' is just awful. The layout is awful (even using LibreOffice something more involved should have been possible in something like 15 minutes), the texts were crawling with errors and badly written. I am not even a native speaker and yet I found literally dozens of errors, spelling and grammar and whatnot. The texts are confusing and redundant, a lot of information is scattered through various chapters, including the starting scenario, the language is bloated and fuzzy. I feel like from ...

Exalted 3rd Edition As a longtime Exalted fan (I literally own every single first and second edition book) I have to say this has been something long awaited and it truly delivers on all the promise that this series has provided over the years. I won't mince words and will just say - if you love Exalted, you need to own this book

City State of the Invincible Overlord
by Tim K.
Publisher: Judges Guild
Date Added: 04/24/2016 14:11:28
City State of the Invincible Overlord A very respectful and detailed treatment of the City-State of the Invincible Overlord. The maps have been cleaned up while remaining faithful to the original. The writing is good, drawing upon the original (same locations, same shop owners) often expanding an idea into something a bit more coherent and readable. For instance, the menu at THE SILVER GOBLET remains the same, but the business is better described and the 9th level Fighter that owns the Inn now has some magic gear available (should you choose to use it). The product also includes a remake of WRAITH OVERLORD, which details many of the regions beneath the city. I had not expected this and was very happy to discover the extra value added to an already loaded product. This helps to explain the almost 300 pages of text and maps. The CSIO descriptive text of the town is still fairly brief, but adding a large expansion did, of course, increase the page count by a great deal. The only downside that I can see is that t...

Cinematic Environs - Arctic Lands

Cinematic Environs - Arctic Lands This is a cool book, but I'm a little disapointed by the grammar/spelling mistakes. When I pay money for a book I expect it to be free of errors. Here's an example: "Snow can fall and remain in a climate hundred of feet deep. The danger is falling into an unseen pocket of air, like a cavern or walk the numerous crevasse bottoms, waiting for the snow to collapse and trap the party. Either choice is suspect and dangerous. But sitting still will only allow the Mcguffin the get that much further away." Other than that though, it's a solid supplement....

BF1 Tower of Skulls (SnW)
by Jeremy Z.
Publisher: Cut to the Chase Games
Date Added: 04/24/2016 04:27:08
BF1 Tower of Skulls (SnW) This is a pretty good dungeon crawl, with a lot of rooms (a little more than 50) most of which are quite detailed. Combat, traps, exploration, riddles, good mix. But it suffers from being a somewhat poor conversion from 5e or Pathfinder, I guess. Firstly, some of the monsters are not described. You just get stat blocks at the end, no details about what they look like or what they are. Most notably, what the heck is a Gwiddon? Secondly, old school games rely on treasure for character advancement. There is almost no treasure in the module. A fair amount of weak magic items, a couple of gems and pieces of jewelry (dog collars) and no monetary treasure. Lastly, supposedly the module takes place in a single night, but has over 20 combat enounters. The module gives places where characters may take a "short rest", which I guess ia a 5e thing. Most old school games don't have that, healing can take a while, even with magic. None of these are major issues (except the lack of monster...

Qin: The Tournament of Scarlet and White
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 04/24/2016 04:04:51
Qin: The Tournament of Scarlet and White The *Tournament of Scarlet and White* is a short scenario that can be run as a one-off or in a convention slot, or as a diversion during a regular campaign. It covers events in a township where, years ago, the provincial governor was overthrown and replaced by the leader of a band of mercenaries. As he's done a good job since, the powers that be have left him alone. Every year the new governor, one Qi Xiang, holds a tournament that is open to all comers, and this year the party has decided to give it a go... An Introduction sets the scene, covering recent history and outlining Qi Xiang's further ambitions, for of course a minor governorship will not satisfy him for ever. It also introduces some leading members of his mercenary band, deliberately unstatted as this adventure is for low level characters and they are supposed to be far too powerful for them to even consider challenging... my group is not that wise, so I made sure that I had a rough idea of their capabilities before runn...

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl

Darkfast Classic Fantasy Bonus Set One: Fae is Fowl These figures are up to Okum's usual high standards, though anthropomorphic animals are not really to my taste, at least for standard fantasy role-playing. The fairies are more useful to me; they are full-size (in scale, at least), and since the wings are an optional add-on feature, you can use them as elves if you like. And you literally can't beat the price.

Hyperspace Messenger Compendium

Publisher: DwD Studios
Date Added: 04/23/2016 13:46:35
Hyperspace Messenger Compendium I love this supplement for everything it brings to my White Star game. Aliens is one of my all time favorite tools and I much prefer the d20 skill system presented in Hyperspace Messenger over the d6 skill system introduced in the White Star Companion. Stunners, Robots, Vehicles, and Cyberwear all bring a bunch of useful goodies and systems to use as you desire and I'll be bringing some of these things into my games to keep my players on their toes. Finally, the last chapter is a handy addition for quickly designing sectors of space. My only complaint is the main font used for most of the text. It appears slightly faded. That being said, it is still highly readable and the rest of the art and graphic are very nice looking....

Qin: The Art of War
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.
Date Added: 04/23/2016 12:01:57
Qin: The Art of War There's a lot of warfare going on in this game, it isn't called Qin: The Warring States for nothing! As the seven states squabble there is plenty of opportunity - perhaps the party wish to become mercenaries or they may see their attempts at diplomacy (or spying) fail, they may become involved in a border skirmish or a siege... whether it's a small scuffle or all-out war, this is a good time and place to display your martial prowess. This supplement gives you all the tools you need, from comprehensive descriptions of the forces maintained by each state to rules for fighting out any scale of brawl right up to epic battles, and several scenarios and ready-to-play characters to thrust your party headlong into the action. Or you may wish to play out battles to form a backdrop to the characters' exploits... First up is The Armies of the Zhongguo. Drawing on the work of the real-world Chinese strategist Sun Tzu, here called Sun Zi, there is a discussion of how - and why - war is waged in ...
