Weapon Series Stock Art #1

Weapon Series Stock Art #1 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this clip art collection to review. That said, I have used Peter's art skills MANY times in the last few years to help with paid commissions for my own RPG products, so I have a great deal of experience not only with his artwork, but his work ethic. This collection is representative of his skill to present cool, usable items with a bit of style that doesn't go overboard. This stock art collection manages to do two things simultaneously. First, it offers some detailed, well-designed weapons for use in any modern or science-fiction setting. Second, each is presented in a clean, black & white, line art style which works well in printed books as well as online. Plus, each piece would be easy for a GM (or RPG designer) to incorporate quickly into their own works, whether for a private game or a published resource. If you need a handful of weapons for your next skirmish, this collection would be hard to beat for the price!...

Sundered Skies - Setting Book
par David D.
Editeur: Triple Ace Games
Date Ajoutée: 12/07/2017 13:00:11
Sundered Skies - Setting Book Magitech High Fantasy The setting is well outlined but rarely gets beyond 'broad strokes'. Many original and evocative ideas are to be found, few are developed very far. Races include fully sapient baby-dragons (Drakin), plant-based Elves, steampunk Dwarfs, sky-viking Orcs, mutant Goblins (Glowborn), and anthrophomorphic animals enslaved by the Elves (Wildlings) The setting itself is a shattered world of sky sialnds floating between an icy glacier and a raging inferno. Sky ships navigate this oddly glowing world in search of salvage, and commerce. Sadly many of the physical laws of the world are based on game balance rather than cinematic appeal or intuition (sky ships cannot approach sky islands from the top or bottom, only from the edges for example) The religion is fairly detailed and involved avatars still walking amongst mortals in the world. But it reads like a bad soap opera or over the top anime. The gods come across more as reckless and childish superhumans than...

Fading Suns (Second Edition)
par David D.
Editeur: Ulisses Spiele
Date Ajoutée: 12/07/2017 12:44:31
Fading Suns (Second Edition) 'A lighter, softer, Warhammer 40k' Do not confuse this with science fiction! This is science fantasy! Swords, bows, knights, cavalry charges, magic, and just the occassional spaceship or alien seems to be the order of the day in Fading Suns. The setting goes into lavish detail in some sections, but completely omits other areas which will likely be vital to play. Feels incomplete. The core mechanic is fast and simple. lots of gear, both psychic and magical powers are included. No starship rules! The art is black and white but of the highest quality for black and white art. The PDF is not bookmarked. Hard to give it low marks in the areas they did include. But so many areas are omitted I can't give it any higher rating than a 3/5. If it were a more complete product 4/5 would be more likely. ...

Lightspeed

Editeur: Avalon Game Company
Date Ajoutée: 12/07/2017 12:38:08
Lightspeed Fast and simple point-based ruleset. Lots of gear. Psychic powers. Starship rules. All the basics are covered. The book includes a 'broad strokes' kitchen sink campaign setting including pastiches of the Empire (Star Wars), the Federation (Star Trek), and a more 'corporate' empire which has a more grey morality. Each region is touched on in brief and campaign ideas are provided for each (rebels vs the Empire, space rangers, free traders, space explorers, etc.). Also many species of humanoid aliens are mentioned in brief, some fairly original but most being pastiches of familiar races from pop-culture (predators, xenomorphs, klingons, hutts, etc.) The Bestiary and Starship Gallery are extensive. The Art is black and white, but very strong, about as good as black and white art can be, with many illustrations of ships and characters. The PDF is not bookmarked. ...

Starquest: Celendrian system—campaign setting
par David D.
Editeur: New Dimension Games
Date Ajoutée: 12/07/2017 12:31:05
Starquest: Celendrian system—campaign setting The author has decided to take the opportunity of this publishing to show off his prose writing ability. Unfortunately his writing ability is subpar, unfocused and distracting from any merits of the product. It never gets to speak for itself as a setting. It's always revealed through the lens of the author's bad writing and rambling musings.

Stars Without Number: Free Edition

Stars Without Number: Free Edition 'Traveler through the lens of a retro-clone'. 3 Classes to choose from (Warrior, Expert, and, Psychic). Lots of Gear, Starship Rules. A fast and simple core mechanic. All the basics are covered right there. The best part of the product is the Planet, Alien, and Faction Generators and Rules. Very similar to Traveller in that regard but tweaked enough to make the purchase worthwhile for fans of that kind of game. Also includes a very limited setting, and an essay on 'Sandbox Play' which is interesting if potentially controversial. The art is black and white and pretty basic. The PDF is bookmarked...

A Field Guide to Fantastic Flora
par Kat W.
Editeur: Pink Dice Bag Publishing

A Field Guide to Fantastic Flora In the campaign that I just started one of my players wanted to try out the alchemiest class from 2.0. I love experimenting with different classes so I was really excited. I also like to add a lot of personal stuff to my games so we went looking for some suppliments for alchemists. My player actually found this one and sent the link over to me. I love this book! The plants are arranged in to different types so there are flowers, herbs, trees, fruit, mushrooms and vegetables. As the other reviewer mentioned there isn't any artwork but it didn't really bother me because the descriptions are clear. The best part how different all the entries are. Some of the plants are food with interesting effects that would be enjoyed by the average person and some are these epic magic things that would be great for a plot hook. The style is also a selling point for me because it's written like someone jotted down notes as they were looking at the plants. Like I said at the begining, I love this boo...

Fantastic Heroes & Witchery

Fantastic Heroes & Witchery An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive rule-set clocks in at 430 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page general hyperlinked ToC (kudos for the added comfort!),4 pages extra-detailed ToC (again, hyperlinked for your convenience!), 4 pages of general index (again with hyperlinks and at the front of the book for easy navigation!), 4 pages of spell index (you guessed it – with hyperlinks, at the front of the book, for comfortable navigation), 2 pages of SRD, 1 page character sheet, leaving us with a massive 412 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This book was provided by a patreon (not sure if the gentleman wanted to be identified) and requested as a prioritized review. My review is based on the pdf-version of this massive book, since I do not own the print version and therefore cannot comment on the merits of the print version. Okay, so this is, in general, an OSR-type of game; it is suffused in the aesthetics of old school roleplaying. But this is not just...

DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e)
par Rachel S.
Editeur: Wizards of the Coast

DDAL07-03 A Day at the Races (5e) The race itself was fun. I blew up the map and printed it across several pieces of paper and made a sort-of board game out of it. I have very visual players so they enjoyed haveing that sort of set up. I did a little altering here and there in order to keep everyone moving (the players rolled high, and I kept rolling low) and the other teams cheated via portal jumps to end up back on their heels. The combat at the end was fun, too. Anytime I can pull out *that* catagory of mob I enjoy it. :) Semi-Spoilers This module was very confusing to me as I preread it. It took me a while to understand certain parts of it. The adventure hook had very little to do with what actually happened. Then we had sort of a Sixth Sense spoiler at the begining where someone pretty much called the end scene. I still don't know how yaun-ti subplot was supposed to effect the race itself unless I chose to ad lib it. (I don't know how/what I would have ad libed as there were no suggestions as to how...

DDEX3-11 The Quest for Sporedome (5e) I ran this for my group when our DM called in sick. We were running SKT but we've run out of 2-hour teir 2 modules so they asked me to run other seasons. Let me tell you that this was a *very* weird one to jump too! Add to that the fact that I had only 20 minutes of concentration to read before game time. lol. It was fun though. Anything in the Underdark is going to be weird so I knew that going in. The culture that was expressed by the "people" there was very enjoyable. The scenes are beautifully pictureesque and the battles are intense. The most difficult and frustrating part was the lack of editing. It seems to be a common problem in mods, but this is the worst I've seen yet. The loot in the back of the adventure wasn't awarded in the story! So I had to decipher where it went and amend it later to my players, which takes away from the ambiance of the story. Seriously, AL guys: raise the price by 10c if you have to but hire an editor! Note, if your group has gaine...

Blood on the Blade

Blood on the Blade Blood on the Blade is a really great, fast playing, unique miniatures combat system. I've played a lot of these types of games but this system manages to add some really new ideas... enough to keep me coming back for more. The built in campaign generator is a nice addition as well. The author has plans for expansions and has already supported his game with a free supplement that adds some new rules and a Challenge system for use in between campaign plots. Looking forward to more from Studium CMLXV and his Blood on the Blade line for sure!...

Millennials are KILLING Millenials are Killing! is a simple game to pick up that turns the frustration of thinkpieces scapegoating millenials for society's woes with a few hours of hilarity. The supplies needed are minimal, and the rules are elegant so that anyone can play regardless of their experience level with tabletop rpgs.

Warbirds Space Age Sourcebook
par Austin G.
Editeur: Outrider Studios
Date Ajoutée: 12/06/2017 17:48:41
Warbirds Space Age Sourcebook Let the buyer beware, you're probably going to need the *You Must Be Mad* sourcebook if you want to get a proper grip on the gear and technology in this book. Over all it's a welcome expansion, but it's incredibly shallow; only giving the most basic information on the setting plus new dogfighting rules. Considering how alive and in-depth the original Warbirds setting felt, I was expecting some more juicy lore about the races and at least a few notable locations.
