Friday Night Fights 2nd Edition
by Ian R.
Publisher: Two Hour Wargames
Date Added: 12/11/2017 18:25:28
Friday Night Fights 2nd Edition If you're in the mood for a boxing game, this is a great way to fill the time. Up front, If you're going to play solitiare matches you need lots of dice. A whole lot of dice. The rules themselves are fairly quick and easy to pick up. Once you've got the core loop the play is extremely quick and exciting. Due to the way the stats function, even AI boxers tend to fight differently. Special notice should go to the Bonus Dice mechanic that allows players to gain advantages on any roll. These work really well during multiplayer matches because they add a real stategic aspect to the dice-chucking fight. This just fall a bit short in solitaire because the AI tends to blow their energy in the first couple rounds. It feels a bit easy to exploit this fact, though it hasn't dulled my enjoyment at all. I'll just likely house rule some things to let the AI recover between rounds. This will keep it fairly unpredictable and hopefully work as well as the multiplayer fights....

Through Their Haunted Eyes Great atmospheric music utterly ruined by an announcement at the end that this track was purchased on DrivethruRPG.com before proceeding to spit out my order number. What? Why? UPDATE: I really appreciate the customer focus and care Black Goat Games demonstrated. There's no longer an audio watermark, and I can whole-heartedly recommend this track at 5 stars! THANKS BLACK GOAT GAMES!

Fragged Empire - Core Rule Book This is a great game with an awesome background. The short stories in the book give a good idea what the universe is like and I am especially fond of the game system that provides a lot of freedom and has a lot of fresh ideas. I can only recommend it!

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Mark C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) There's some good ideas in this module, but it is very poorly presented. I kind of find it hard to believe that this adventure was ever reviewed by an editor. There are references to outdated mechanisms (resistance is presented in 4e style rather than 5e), there are encounters with vague information and others with references to information that was never presented in the first place.

Echelon Reference Series: Sorcerer/Wizard Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD)

Echelon Reference Series: Sorcerer/Wizard Spells Compiled (3pp+PRD) An Endzeitgeist.com review First things first: This review is based primarily on the version that takes 3pp-options as well as PRD-spells into account; for a link to the PRD-only version, see the bottom of my review on my homepage. This COLOSSAL reference tome clocks in at 1176 pages. Let that sink in. 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page blank, 12 pages of SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with a ridiculous 1159 pages of content. It should be noted that the pdf sports a 37 pages strong index; this index not only lists the spells alphabetically, it also sports hyperlinks, allowing you to jump directly to the spell in question – a comfort function I thoroughly enjoy. This review was moved up in my reviewing-queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons. Now, as always, you should be aware that this book is a reference tome – it compiles information. As such, I am not going to be judging the quality of the content collected; instead, I...

In the Company of Giants Revised (5E) An Endzeitgeist.com review of the second revised version The second revision of the 5e-conversion of „In the Company of Giants“ clocks in at 16 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 12 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was moved up in my reviewing queue at the request of my patreons. Now one of the definite strengths of this series, should you not be familiar with it, lies in immersion - like most Rite Publishing books, the "In the Company of..."-series is defined by being simply pleasant to read, which is a pretty big deal for me. How does it achieve that? Well, know how some crunch-supplements read like telephone books? Rite books employ a cool strategy here - they are written from the point of view of actual characters. Thus, this pdf begins with Owain Northway, one of the sages of Questhaven, receiving a letter from a member of the Jotunnar race, who then proceeds to explain the basics of the race....

Beyond Damage Dice: New Weapon Options for 5th Edition

Beyond Damage Dice: New Weapon Options for 5th Edition An Endzeitgeist.com review This supplement for 5e clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let’s take a look! Of all components of any iteration of D&D, weapons are ultimately the most underdeveloped component, at least regarding the impact they have on gameplay. From different ACs versus different types of attacks in 2nd edition, to DR in PFRPG/3.X to 5e’s resistance/immunity-system, there have been many takes on the aspects; 5e does a lot right in my book, with its rock-paper-scissors approach to damage resistance and immunities, an approach that mirrors my own games in many ways; for example, attacking werewolves with anything that’s not silver is tantamount to suicide in my games. Similarly, materials and weaponry peculiarities allow you to create a sensible myth: E.g. making an attack against a skeleton with a piercing weapon only cause minimum damage, prior to DR/resistance etc, o...

CAL1 Calidar, In Stranger Skies

CAL1 Calidar, In Stranger Skies A great campaign setting for fans of Mystara and Spelljammer and for anyone else too. Flying ships are the focus of the setting, but there is much more. Planets and moons, dragons and dragon knights, wilderlands really wilds, diverse human and not human cultures, very nasty humanoids, mortals earning immortality. Game designer Bruce Heard used well his past experiences to create an original and interesting setting. Highly recommended!

Blood on the Blade
by Ian R.
Publisher: STUDIUM CMLXV
Date Added: 12/11/2017 00:05:48
Blood on the Blade This one managed to surprise me in alot of ways despite being a veteran of the genre. It takes well known concepts and snaps them together in a unique fashion. Whether it's the (Potentially frustrating) chit draw initiative or the system for getting damage and hit rolls with one roll it manages to stand out. The core rules play well and lead to some genuinely interesting encounters. Each faction has it's own feel and they present unique challenges. This isn't to say that it's without a little clunkiness here and there, but the experience outweighed th eissues. The campaign play itself is pretty good. The character growth is fun and there's a great feeling of raising your warband. That said, It benefits from a bit of decision making from time to time. It'll help if you're not afraid to say things like "Oh, this ambush is related to my last quest so I'm facing -that- army". rather than always rolling for opposition. Overall, I've had a blast with this game and I highly recommen...

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e) A nice way to introduce players to both AL and Chult. It is easy for these modules to last over an hour, though. The overwhelmingly favorite module is the dinosaur races, which is nice and light hearted enough, and it helps ease players into the action.

Heroic Maps - Storeys: Scrivener Street

Heroic Maps - Storeys: Scrivener Street The artwork, as in all Heroic Maps products, is astounding and truly adds to the feel of realism during game play. I love writing my own adventures for the small three-person group we have on Wednesday & Thursday nights, and Scrivener Street almost pens a story by itself! The incredible detail makes it easy to conjur up ideas & directions for adventurers to go without having to imagine thinmgs that aren't there. Even the great out-of-focus sreets and of lower ground level areas make it obvious to players that they're on an upper floor. I've got some work ahead of me as I put together an in-town adventure story, but that work is going to be easier because of the beautifully detailed art created by the people at Heroic Maps. My thanks to everyone there!...

Rogue Trader: Core Rulebook

Rogue Trader: Core Rulebook This is a wonderful main book! I purchased the Drive Thru RPG PDF version as a backup to the physical book. The system is fantastically simple to understand and is all based on D10's! If you are looking for a space opera that is well written and has a very deep backstory to it...this is the game for you. The illustrations are well-drawn and provide the visual flavor to the system. I highly recommend this book!

Malevolent and Benign

Malevolent and Benign This tome is one of the top three OSR 1e Monster books out there. I'm not saying it's perfect, but it's close enough. And it does stay true to it's name as it has a good blend of both malevolent and benign critters unlike a few other out there. It feels like it fits OSR like a well worn pair of Boots of Striding & Springing.

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e)

DDAL07-01 A City on the Edge (5e) City on the Edge serves as a good introduction to Port Nyanzaru, a key location in Season 7 and Tomb of Annihilation. There is good variety, althought some of the encounters were pretty plain. I both played this and DM'd it in 4-hour slots (even though it is officially 5 hours of play), and it took significant planning to make the timing work. What I liked * The overall framing and some of the mini-adventures had good flavor. Players really get the feel of being in a large, steamy city on the edge of the jungle that has a wide variety of factions and political interests. I especially liked the flavor of mission 2 and mission 3, which were just different from the usual. * Lots of variety in locales and encounters. The party travels to different parts of the city and outside of the city. and encounters actually occur in diverse settings. * Some good roleplaying opportunity, especially with the faction heads. What I didn't like * The dinosaur race was confusing and got old quick...
