Better Angels: No Soul Left Behind
von Petri W.
Verlag: Arc Dream Publishing
Hinzugefügt am: 08/22/2016 01:54:12
Better Angels: No Soul Left Behind Ok, I'll admit I backed this Kickstarter just on the strength of it being done by one of the RPPR guys (excellent podcast!), and it being a campaign for a game by the awesome Greg Stolze didn't hurt. I received the book some time ago, but only now got around to reading it. Wow. Just... wow. I read a lot of rpg stuff, and this is the best thing I've read in a long, long while. It's a cynically hilarious take on modern (U.S.) high school education, and it shows that it's written by a real-life teacher -- there is a ton of darkly humorous material here about the realities of meager budgets, political backstabbing, and burned-out teachers. However, it's not nihilistic -- quite the opposite. The general theme is making a difference (however small) and the possibilities for redemption in a world where doing the right thing isn't usually all that easy. The book is giggle-inducingly funny, poking fun at pretty much everything, and the amazing this is that in addition to being a fantastic re...

Exalted 3rd Edition
von Alexandre C.
Verlag: Onyx Path Publishing
Hinzugefügt am: 08/21/2016 19:00:27
Exalted 3rd Edition It's basically excellent, just like about anything Onyx Path has been publishing those last years. Here are the things I prefer : 1. The combat system is fantastic. It works, it is balanced, and it is totally suited to the sort of cinematic gameplay Exalted should be. The first edition tried to adapt the WoD combat system into a cinematic system, it partly worked because overall it is a really neat and versatile system, but still it generated a lot of issues because it was designed with different goals and constraints. The second edition tried to fix those issues through more rules; the result was more balanced but quite bloated and not very usable. This third edition has a completely different system. The weathering/decisive attack distinction is really great and appeals to anyone who ever saw an action movie or anime, while preserving the general structure of the simple and efficient WoD game system. It's just brilliant. 2. The moral/ethics part of the game has been reworked to ...

Blades in the Dark, Digital Edition Early Access
von Vicki C.
Verlag: One Seven
Hinzugefügt am: 08/21/2016 03:33:36
Blades in the Dark, Digital Edition Early Access We have just begun our first campaign in Blades in the Dark. We normally play more D&D(ish) type games that are very heavy on rules, dice rolls, and having every detail of the world already in place. In those cases I have always chosen to have someone else run the campaign, someone who is more of a rules lawyer and likely to remember every tiny little detail that applies to each and every situation. I LOVE the face that Blades in the Dark is based more upon the story and narrative than it is upon rules and regulations. There is enough information given on the world to be used comfortably (should you choose to do so), but also so much left open to the imagination. As I have a great love of story telling and was incredibly impressed with the potential that I saw in this game, I knew that I not only had to have it...but also that, for the first time in over ten year....I wanted to be the one to run the game. I have banned the rules lawyers from my game (there are one or two th...

Battle Maps APOCALYPSE: Wasteland Ruins II

Battle Maps APOCALYPSE:  Wasteland Ruins II This product would be good if the resolution was higher for Virtual Table Top and if it was gridless. Virtual Table Top software doesn't need grids because it provides one. Also, for people who play GURPS (Like me) the squares get in the way of hex play. I hope the publisher corrects this.

The Wander
von Walt R.
Verlag: Ryan Chaddock Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/20/2016 17:24:24
The Wander A nice collection of items and locations for a campaign the Wandering Walk, or for most other Numenera campaigns. There are also a few short stories to help kindle the GM's imagination. This isn't a 'maps + room by room details' kind of supplement. The locations in this product will need your own details added but you could probably make an entire campaign just finding and exploring the Drifting Archive (just one of the locations). There are a few new foci based on what type of Wanderer a PC may be, whether a Peregrine, Bandit, etc. These give some excellent RP possibilities and bring some nice flavor to the game. There are some spelling errors, usually a misapplied homonym (such as fair instead of fare) that may or may not make you reread a passage. All in all, very much worth the $3....

Dragonlance: Fifth Age Dramatic Adventure Game (SAGA)
von Philip C.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/20/2016 17:13:19
Dragonlance: Fifth Age Dramatic Adventure Game (SAGA) Because this product doesn't come with the map and the cards necessary for actually playing the game (which I really would like to see an explanation for), it's tough to go all five stars here. This isn't a playable game today when you purchase it. But I do have to say that when it comes down to it, Fifth Age is a game that was ahead of its time. It borrows some things from the '90s turns in game design and re-worked the magic system in ways that were really quite smart. Furthermore, there are some really neat mechanics here and I think it's still a cool game. Being totally frank, *Fifth Age* feels like a setting where one can play Dragonlance and have one's own heroes. The setting changes were quite unpopular at the time, but I think that* Fifth Age* is built to really accomodate your own epic tales. Canonical characters exist in the world, but with the arrival of the Ancient Wyrms, and the development of Mysticism and Sorcery, there's so much to carve out without falling in the sh...

Aether & Flux: Sailing the Traverse I must say, I was really impressed with this Interpretation of the spelljammer theme. From the game mechanics to the ideas of how everything works in game, Aether and Flux fixed the shortcomings of Spelljammer. As much as I love Spelljammer, Aether and Flux dose it in a way that makes sense.

Solar Echoes Mission: Derelict A very interesting mission to play, a lot of surprises along the way, but quite dangerous for the PCs, even the most prudent. Only a very close team or a very lucky one will come on top unharmed. Still, a good moment of gameplay.

Book of Beasts: Monsters of the Forbidden Woods (5e)
von Ismael A.
Verlag: Jon Brazer Enterprises
Hinzugefügt am: 08/20/2016 15:09:31
Book of Beasts: Monsters of the Forbidden Woods (5e) Disclaimer: I received a review copy. Now, I have to say that I am massively impressed with this product. It is not a bestiary so much as it is an ecology primer on a bunch of new creatures that are original, inspiring, and effective. Ranging from animal to elemental to monstrocity, there are plenty of interesting and original creatures to use in your campaigns. For each creature or type we are given a wide number of alternative builds, whether they be stronger versions of the base creature, or full distinct variations on a similar theme. For instance, we get young, adult, and elder spider bears, while the druidic guardians are varied by elemental type. Each cluster of creatures comes with plot hooks, potential treasure (when it makes sense), and pointers for how a creature might behave in battle. This, coupled with the brief but comprehensive descriptions give creatures a depth that is not conveyed in a 1 page stat block. And although the hit point values are a bit low for a giv...
