INDEX CARD RPG Core Set You could pay 16 bucks for the GM section of the book alone and still have gotten more than your money's worth. Whether you are looking for a new system to run or, like me, swiping huge chunks of ideas and content for DW or your personal flavor of fantasy rpg, you will find that the Fantastic Nuggets to Eh Well That's OK ratio of ICRPG is just phenomenal. Easy recommend, must own.

First things first: As before, we receive scaling information, namely the required modifications to run this for 4th level or 6th level characters instead of the 5th-level default.

Places of Power: Godswatch

Places of Power: Godswatch An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Places of Power-series clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page back cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look! Consecrated in the names of countless gods, the edifice known as Godswatch represents a tower overlooking the raging river Kyrene, welcoming pilgrims and inquisitive priests of esoteric religions alike. It is more than a mere place of religious learning and sanctuary, though - the tower is also a watchpost, commemorating the triumph of the river god over an evil vanquished long ago. No one permanently lives at the godswatch, but at least one elder and several acolytes staff the site and, as the lore that inquisitive PCs may pick up, suggests, the place may in itself be a safeguard against the return of the evil once defeated. As we're come to expect from the series, the pdf does come with 6 sample events, which range from the a...

Profane Miracles An Endzeitgeist.com review This adventure for Esoterrorists clocks in at 32 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page blank, leaving us with 29 pages of content, so let's take a look! This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. ... .. . All right, still around? Great! So famous financier Jonathan Bentley was recently resurrected from beyond the pale in a rather public manner, at a charity ball of his widow Grace Summerville, and this feat was achieved by the famed psychic Cassandra Madrigal. The OV-agents are sent in with cover identities as investigative reporters. That's the basic premise. Behind the scenes, resentment has festered between Jonathan and his wife - she was smarter and always one step ahead, the true brains of his enormous success...and thus he faked his death with an esoterrorist drug named Fatalix, which also acts as a drug...if Bentley stops heeding the call o...

V20 Dark Ages Companion

V20 Dark Ages Companion I got the PDF as soon as it was available and will be purchasing the print copy once the errata is included. I would categorise this book as a useful supplement, but not a necessary one. I particularly liked the elements to do with Domain Building, including expanded backgrounds and the streamling of combat (which always felt overly dice heavy). The clan apocrypha, particularly the nosferatu apocrypha, was very interesting. I wrote a full review on the following site https://itsmorethanjustgaming.com/2017/05/24/v20-vampi-
re-the-dark-ages-companion-review/ If you don't have time to read my conclusion is as already stated. Useful, but in no way necessary to a game. If you enjoy Dark Ages setting and you have the cash, it is a worthy addition...

DDEX3-01 Harried in Hillsfar (5e)
by Kyle M.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 06/20/2017 21:29:36
DDEX3-01 Harried in Hillsfar (5e) This particular module consists of five scenarios or "mini adventures". WotC seems to think each of those should run in about an hour each. In my experience, they take about an hour and a half to two hours each. The setup for the adventure overall focuses on the rantings of a madman. Somehow, the players realize he is actually prophesying, and they turn that into clues that lead to five separate scenarios. That felt really weak, but I ran with it anyway because, with a public group, we didn't really have time for an in-depth "session zero" to get the group together. I would have liked a better introductory hook. The scenarios themselves vary. Without getting too far into spoiler territory, the first two felt too much alike: go to a farm and discover a mystery, then halfway resolve it by trying to be heroes. (That first scenario nearly led to a TPK - some of the demonically-affected creatures can present a significant combat challenge!) The third scenario felt even more disconnected ...

INDEX CARD RPG Core Set Great system, for several reasons: 1) Not a rehash. While it's a combo of 5e and Dungeon World, it's neither. It feels like a new system, but a familiar one. 2) #1 is largely because of Effort. It immediately changed the way I viewed the other systems our group runs and made me want to replace skill challenges, most checks and combat with it. Simple, yet elegant. 3) The art is great. If nothing else, buy it and the art packs to use in other systems. 4) The author has been making great videos on YouTube for awhile. This is one way to give back to him. It's not perfect...I have some issues with the expected (required?) lack of downtime (there are no town rules and no expectation of non-gogogo time), and the lack of leveling is either going to be great or horrible for players (depending on their outlook). I can overlook these issues (which largely come down to personal taste anyway) in favor of what the system brings to the hobby. Finally...it's fast, easy and fun to ru...

Legacy's Wake
by Timothy R.
Publisher: Mithrilpunk Press
Date Added: 06/20/2017 17:41:03
Legacy's Wake My only complaint about this adventure is that there's a few typos and it requires some homework to make some scenes mesh a little better (I changed a few around based on my player's reactions), but if that's the only complaints, it's doing pretty good. The setting is very engaging and exciting, the characters the players interact with are very well fleshed out. The encounters are well crafted, and include unique mechanics that tell the story from different viewpoints, add clues, reduce meta gaming, and increase role play. The story will take your players from 1 to 20 with lots of plot lines weaving into each other, leading to a truly epic final chapter....

Witches and Wyverns
by Steven W.
Publisher: Lernaean Studio
Date Added: 06/20/2017 11:50:14
Witches and Wyverns This is a nice light set of fantasy RPG rules, using just 2d6 and some scratch paper. The rules give you four classes and some advanced classes (think D&D prestige classes), combat and magic rules, and about a dozen critters in a bestiary. Appendices give you advice on making your own classes and monsters. Characters have no attributes or skills, and are defined solely by their classes. There are no lists of equipment, or rules for travel and such. At $1.00 for 21 pages Witches and Wyverns is a decent value, though limited. An experienced GM could easily use it as to run hours worth of adventures with little to no prep, and making up new content for the game would be simple. Other stuff: To my eyes the layout looks fine. I didn't see any major typographical errors. The art is minimal but there is some art. ...

DDAL4-01 Suits of the Mists (5e) This set of intro adventures I have mixed views of. They are decently written, but I feel like only the last one really sets the stage for what lies ahead this season. The others have a feeling of going out to rescue people that Darwinism might suggest should just be left to their fate, a comment (or others similar) I have heard a few times running this set.

DDEX3-01 Harried in Hillsfar (5e) It is a good intro to the city of Hillsfar and what lie ahead for season 3. The five mini adventures keep it short and make it easy to have players new to 5E and AL sit in on a quick game or two to see if it's something that interests them. Each one has its own quirk that challenges the players to prime them for full adventures, though I found one can be a bit overwhelming and can punish the players a bit harshly considering it is something usually run for brand new players.
