Gossamer Worlds: The Otherlands (Diceless)
by H. M. L.
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 08/31/2015 03:53:46
Gossamer Worlds: The Otherlands (Diceless) PCs in Lords of Gossamer and Shadow are fragile gods; beings of great power with nearly-human weaknesses. This product is designed to remind the players that their Wardens and Lords *are* fragile--and not as close to the top of the cosmic food chain as they may believe themselves to be. :) The Otherworld gives your LoGaS campaign a brand new and utterly terrifying threat to the multiverse, and a half-dozen ways to entangle your players with that threat. It's all too easy for LoGaS players to become confident in their understanding of the game's cosmology, and their character's place within it. One encounter with the Otherworld and Otherworldly entities detailed here will shake that complacency to the core--in a good way. All the Gossamer Worlds products are good reads, but this one one is by far the best value for the price; It's not just a place to visit, it's an entire campaign arc....

Gossamer Worlds: Poetica Mundi (Diceless)

Gossamer Worlds: Poetica Mundi (Diceless) If anyone in your game asks "how strange can a gossamer world get?" Poetica Mundi is your answer: It's fantastic, surreal, & brilliant. Writing the whole thing in verse was utterly mad, and I love it. GlimmerGloam was the previous high water mark for "out there" gossamer worlds. It has been surpassed. :)

False Promises
by Jeremy Z.
Publisher: ThrowiGames
Date Added: 08/31/2015 03:31:33
False Promises This is a longer module than you might think, although the page count is only 20 pages, it uses two columns and very small (almost hard to read) print. Besides the main adventure, which had the party explore a ruined town and mine, there are also two small villages detailed (5-10 buildings each), a side quest involving goblin caves, and another side quest involving an old tomb (roughly 7-9 rooms each). Quite frankly, I've seen some modules that were the size of just one of those side quests sell for $2.50 From that point of view, it's a very good value, even at $5. On the other hand, while the adventure is well written, with a lot of description of the encounter areas, it's somewhat bland. Most of the encounters are with the same sort of enemy over and over and over. While that makes sense in terms of plot, it gets old quick. Apparently it was originally written for another system and there are some things that didn't translate well, for instance, there's almost no treasure to be f...

All Flesh Must be Eaten Revised Impressive as I expected it to be from the reviews... slightly tongue in cheek at times, but overall: very good gaming system.

Crimson Dragon Slayer
by Jerry M.
Publisher: Kort'thalis Publishing
Date Added: 08/30/2015 21:47:25
Crimson Dragon Slayer Far more Awesome than God-Awful. What struck me as great about Crimson Dragon Slayer is how there is nothing mundane about it. There are no boring ponderous descriptions of game mechanics, no passages on how they might be used to fit a framework and maintain game balance. Yawn.... Everything dull has been stripped out. Everything else has been amped up to hair metal levels of intensity. I love the dice mechanic. If you're going to bother with a dice pool you might as well have one where you just roll the dice and automatically know how you did just as soon as they hit the table. I love that characters stop at level 10 and the way to increase in level is by accomplishing feats rather than by counting up experience points. How many times can the Warrior attack per round? The warrior attacks until the warrior misses which is just totally bad ass. And it's also just the tip of the iceberg. What is there not to love? Well, it could be better organized. It would be nice to see a sa...

Masters of Umdaar • A World of Adventure for Fate Core A wonderful homage to 80's adventure cartoons like Thundar, He-Man, and Thundercats. Just perfect.

Shadow of the Demon Lord
by Luke W.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 08/30/2015 20:32:10
Shadow of the Demon Lord Shadow of the Demon Lord is Rob Schwalb's love letter to WFRP, which has then been streamlined, improved, and focussed through his recent experiences in developing WFRP2e and D&D5e. There is a level of unrestrained madness and glee in the RPG that has come across in his KS campaign and updates. OVERVIEW The book is 272 pages long, 16 pages longer than promised and seems very complete. This is a pleasant surprise as it seems all too often that "all in one book" fantasy RPGs often simply often drop chunks of content in an attempt to look like they fulfil their claims. Before even looking at the content, there is a detailed 1 1/2 page contents page, a 4 page index, a monster by level chart, and a section on creating a customising monsters. In terms of content, there is: - 6 races - humans, dwarves, changelings, clockworks, goblins, and orcs - 4 basic paths - magician, priest, rogue and warrior - 16 expert paths - 4 grouped loosely into each of the scope of the 4 basic pat...

Dispatches from the Raven Crowking Volume 1
by Terry O.
Publisher: Purple Duck Games
Date Added: 08/30/2015 20:11:12
Dispatches from the Raven Crowking Volume 1 I've finally had time to read Vol. 1 of Dispatches from Raven Crowking. I think it is excellent! There is so much fantastic advice regarding game-running and adventure writing that I'm sure many people, both novices and veterans, can benefit. Daniel Bishop does a great job of using clear, concise language to make his points with just enough elaboration to flesh things out without invoking "yes, I get it already" skimming. My favorite 3 articles are "Choices, Context, and Consequences," "Prepare for the Epic Endgame," and "Devising Initial Adventures for Dungeon Crawl Classics." I often found myself nodding along in agreement, and saying things to myself like, "Oh yeah, good point," and "Crap, I need to that more often." Excellent reading all around! The only (very minor) gripes I had was that I felt like "Shanthopal," "Learning Spells on the Fly," and "Ammonites" seemed out of place and somewhat incongruous to the adventure-running-and-writing advice that occupies so much of the te...

Green Devil Face #5
by Troy V.
Publisher: Lamentations of the Flame Princess
Date Added: 08/30/2015 19:29:04
Green Devil Face #5 This supplement periodical had elements and ideas I found informative, unusual, and interesting, including the new experience mechanic and the new character creation and advancement techniques. P.S. The following is a shout-out to the publisher. While some of the system's ideas may be interesting, the referee style and attitude towards players it encourages leaves VOLUMES to be desired. Inserting compulsory "player-f***ers" into the game simply because you can is incredibly perturbing. A number of my reviews may have been copied. Nevertheless, they are my honest judgments regarding those adventures and the game system, and I am allowed to critique them as I paid for them. Correct me if I'm wrong, but did not you (or Zak S.) say something in the manner of, "Even bad media is still media?" I'll admit I was quite annoyed with the system, and perhaps the numerous negative reviews were impulsive, but I made my bed and I will sleep in it. If you have a low opinion of me fr...

Bag End Floor Plans of a hobbit house
by Matt A.
Publisher: Dreamworlds
Date Added: 08/30/2015 11:18:45
Bag End Floor Plans of a hobbit house While it is nicely illustrated, (and free,) this map does not make for a plausible Halfling estate, much less the canonical Bag End by Tolkien. Rooms seem strung together almost at random. There are 7 scattered bedrooms, two kitchens right next to each other (and several doors down from the dining room) and no cloak room.

Rogue Planet
by Jeremy H.
Publisher: Brent Spivey Creations
Date Added: 08/30/2015 08:46:48
Rogue Planet While the presentation is excellent, great art and graphic design throughout, the system is not the Apocalypse World Engine. I think the publisher should fix that. I mean, I'm not totally disappointed, but this isn't what I thought it was going to be. The book was listed as Deal of the Day and time was almost out so I bought it based on the cover and the system it is billed as using.

Shadows of Sekhmet I and my players really enjoyed the other pulp Egypt adventures so I thought I would add this to the queue. After reading it I found that I want to move it up the list.

CypherCaster Magazine - Issue 002 (July 2015)

CypherCaster Magazine - Issue 002 (July 2015) There is not enough printed adventures for the Cypher System and these guys are providing that. The lay out of the pages is not very engaging, though what they hold is pretty good. Maybe a few more articles on the specifics of the systems, game mastering, play styles and the such would be helpful. But they are still only on issue #2, I have every belief that they will become the go to magazine for the cypher system games. If the fan base lets them.
