Stacked!

Stacked! The premise is great; tarot driven story telling where each player gets a turn to be GM. That really inspires me to run this game. I looked into many tarot decks when I found this game. There are quite a few that could help inspire story. For example, Tarot of the 78 Doors, Steampunk Tarot, Necronomicon Tarot, The Night Sun Tarot, Troth Tarot, Royo Dark Tarot, Parrott Tarot, 78 Whispers In My Ear, etc. It might be a good gateway game for players to GM, similar to Fiasco. But unfortunately the game rules are lacking. It's only 2 pages of rules, and that's nice so you can quickly dive into the game, but it takes multiple reads to make sense of the rules. Terminology is inconsistent or confusing. For example, the phrase "stat point" in the beginning of the document refers to how many dice you roll when using a stat in a task, but then in the rewards section they use "stat point" to mean a factional value of one stat die. And you'll be asking yourself whether special task and special ev...

The Things We Leave Behind

The Things We Leave Behind Outstanding! TTWLB is a fantastic collection of beautifully dark modern Cthulhu scenarios. It stays edgy without straying into that 'trying too hard' area you might find in certain other games. I'm hanging for their next publication.

Blades in the Dark

Blades in the Dark If I could I'd give it 4,5 stars. On first glance, the premise is simple, perhaps even simplistic. Don't let that fool you. If I hadn't had a chance to page through this for free, I wouldn't have given it another glance. I am glad I did get that chance, and I'd strongly suggest the author consider releasing a demo version that showcases more of the mechanics and setting than the current preview available here, which is simply not enough to convey the elegance of this game. I usually prefer systems that have a far stronger focus on mechanics, but I can appreciate a system that is light on them without feeling like it's trying to keep them to a minimum at every turn. The rules are very good at encouraging and empowering players, which I very much like. The world feels like a familiar fantasy world that hasn't been stuck in a medieval age forever but rather advanced technologically and culturally, without becoming a bland version of our real world industrial age. If you're familiar w...

DDEX1-03 Shadows of the Moonsea (5e)

DDEX1-03 Shadows of the Moonsea (5e) Great flavour and the first real dip into the Season's core story/theme. Was a little confusing setting up whether a certain group of NPCs was caught up in things or not (reading the adventure you'll know what I mean without giving anything away).

Date Added: 04/23/2017 14:43:29
DDEX1-02 Secrets of Sokol Keep (5e) Neat adventure taking the group to a close but far location from Phlan, was fun for my players with lots of opportunity for creative thinking and RP. For DMs it would help to get a stats for the key NPC in this adventure (without giving things away) along with a little more quotes/lines for PC interactions.

DDEX1-01 Defiance in Phlan (5e) Great introductory adventures for anyone new to Adventurer's League or D&D in general. Could use a little bit of editing and updating to bring it in line with the current AL Player's Guide and DM's Guide.

DRAGONSHIRE: Market Square

DRAGONSHIRE: Market Square This is a great build, really nice accessories for any village. May be used with the provided new tiles or not. The fountain is great! Really draws attention to itself. I was under the impression that it is going to be really hard, but it wasn't, it's just different from building buildings. This set is VERY recommended.

DDAL05-16 Parnast Under Siege (5e) A lot of new mechanics here, so DMs do need to perpare well ahead of running this adventure. Although a 4 hour adventure, it can easily take 6. Like most AL modules, it could use a little editing but is otherwise the most epic Tier 1 adventure I have ever read, well done!

ERA for Rolemaster
by Bobby W.
Publisher: Iron Crown Enterprises
Date Added: 04/23/2017 13:23:36
ERA for Rolemaster I expected this to work flawlessly, the combat tool did not work on the stock monsters. That was my biggest frustration. Additionally, when creating a character I expected to be able to randomly generate stats with the RMFRP set. Lastly, the software is designed to run on a localhost using a web interface. Which is great provided you have the ability to connect to a router so that your players can do something with the software. In a lot places there were no buttons to return to the main module, so I had to use the back button far too frequently for my tastes. The character sheet for printing is awful, as well, I'd expect that it would render in a very nice sheet that we could print and take to the table. I expected the ability to enter my own data as well.Purchasing the data packs is the route they decided to take, but if I don't have the extra money and I want to invest my time into entering the data myself, I expect to be able to do that. Overall its a decent attempt, but...

DDAL05-17 Hartkiller's Horn (5e)

DDAL05-17 Hartkiller's Horn (5e) I had a lot of fun running this adventure and my table loved it. It has a great sense of scale and they felt like they were actually affecting the events around then which helped get them invested. Fair warning though, it is important as a DM to give the players an understanding of what they are up against. If they want the best results, or are just very brave/reckless they can find themselves in truly dire situations.

Bags of Flavour: Books

Bags of Flavour: Books Its a very inspiring read, full of hooks for both creativity and literal role playing I felt enchanted by the detailed descriptions, and was both amused and fascinated with the way things are written and the feel they evoke. I fully recommend this book for a Game Master looking to give more life to tomes and libraries taking new spins on things and something different and fresh.

DDAL04-02 The Beast (5e)
by Robert S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 04/23/2017 12:23:15
DDAL04-02 The Beast (5e) I utilized this as a sneak peak into Barovia with a group I am running through LMoP, Using the Barexit loophole to get the players out of Barovia to finish LMoP before a proper CoS Campaign. This adventure really captures the atmosphere for the CoS campaign, with the scenes painted very bleakly and the change up in the different monsters players will face in Barovia. Additionally, while the players were able to avoid some of the more dark moments (the possible ending scene specifically, should the players bring a PC back), those scenes do play into the feel of this world very well. The combat encounters we decently scaled. With 5 4th level charecters they definetly felt the pressure, but were also able to avoid the final combat encounter completly through good RP and choices they made at the start of the adventure. If you are needing an entry into Barovia, and have charecters above the DDAL04-01 threshold, this adventure fits the bill and runs very smoothly. ...
