Fantasy Beer Name Generator
by Stephen Y.
Publisher: Azukail Games
Date Added: 09/20/2016 07:42:48
Fantasy Beer Name Generator At 7 pages, 6 are the content. P2 informs you how to use the tables. P3 & 4 give examples. Pages 5-7 are the tables. The PDF is colour throughout, with pictures of steins/tankards/bottles. Some of the results rolled can be somewhat amusing. At 35 pence/46 cents, it's very much worth getting.

Victorious the Role Playing Game

Victorious the Role Playing Game When I saw this game on sale i knew i had to get it. Victorian, Pulp, Steampunk Superheroes. Every one of those genres is something I like in an RPG so this was right up my alley. And to be fair it does deliver on what it promised. It has decent rules for building a superhero, giving them access to steampunk science, magic, inventions and superpowers with good list of power choices with straightforward effects that scale up in power when taken multiple times but still function well when only taken once. Character creation itself is fairly solid, with a level system that let's you build your character from the ground up. amusingly this is a point build system disguised as a level system, all the presented classes are basically just example character archetypes, as the classes are all identical, with the same points allotted, and careful examination shows that the different hit dice between classes is just due to having taken the 'robust' power multiple times, increasing hit dic...

The Apple of Her Eye (Novice)
by Thomas V.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 09/20/2016 01:44:08
The Apple of Her Eye (Novice) WARNING : MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. Along with the spectacular SoTDL rulebook and sourcebooks, Schwalb Entertainment released a ton of short adventures to support the game, their level of quality varying wildly from good to truly embarrassing. Finally, I get to review a good one ! The Apple of Her Eye plays into the Village with A Dark Secret trope and does it well. First of all, it avoids trying to convince the players that everything is normal there (that never works). Even before arriving in the village the PCs will know something is wrong wit this community and yet the true nature and extent of the situation will probably suprise them. Also, the adventure provides flavourful, believable NPCs and gives enough details so the DM will have to trouble presenting the village as a living community (before things inevitably descend into murder and mayhem). The minor NPCs table is a very nice touch, along with the recurring apple theme. So, well worth the price....

Scarlet Heroes Quickstart
by James A.
Publisher: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Added: 09/19/2016 11:03:33
Scarlet Heroes Quickstart I'm quite happy with this quickstart guide, and I will most likely end up purchasing the full rulebook to continue playing. As a system, I feel that Scarlet Heroes is great for what it's advertised: a 1v1, PC vs. GM adventure. It's simple enough to play quickly and easily (even if you don't have much experience with a D&D style system), and I can see how it would be easy to convert other D20-based content to Scarlet Heroes. It really mitigates the hazards of party-of-one combat, which can make the game easier for an inexperienced (or lazy) GM. I'm not super-excited about the built-in theme and world building, but that's personal taste, and it's easy to swap out for a different setting. As a quickstart guide, it's very polished. Creating a character took just 20 minutes, and the included dungeon crawl, while very basic, should give you a chance to try out all the included mechanics. All the mechanics introduced in the quickstart are intuitive (to me, at least) and none are aw...

Hex Kit Volume One: Fantasyland

Hex Kit Volume One: Fantasyland A very consistent product, given that it's hand-drawn, with enough variation in common tile types that I don't feel I'm repeating too often. Coasts are just bonkers, I've had to use three monitors to transcribe a map-- one with the new map, one with the old, and one with all the coast tiles! There are a few things I would've liked out of this edition and a few more that I'm looking forward to in the next. I'll start with the next-edition territory first. I think it goes without saying that the dynamic coast tiles are the most interesting part of this pack. I would be very interested to see that system extended to the Mountains and Hill tilesets especially, but Mushroom, Crystal, and Volcano tilesets as well. I'd also like to see road tiles in the same vein as this edition's river tiles. Multiple styles -- cobblestone, dirt, asphalt, major, minor, etc. would greatly enhance the usability of the existing tilesets. In this edition, my complaints are almost entirely related to the ...

Siege Engines
by Bruce L.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 09/19/2016 10:05:49
Siege Engines I took this set to the next level: I mounted it to 2mm thick cardboard, for the tower and the battering ram, to make them durable. While this meant I had to alter the construction techniques slightly, it still came together quite well. I used some plastic MK base discs to create the wheels, but using the printed paper wheels, mounted to the same cardboard, would also work. I edged the thick cardboard with gray craft paint, and the finished model turned out incredibly durable, much heavier, and extremely strong for holding mini's, and resisting flexing, and damage, from handling. I am applying the same 2mm thick cardboard construction technique to the FD Castle set I purchased. My wall sections, gates, and towers, are quite sturdy, durable, and heavy, compared to 110# cardstock versions of the same constructs! I print my pieces on regular, 20# paper, then I use a permanent glue stick to adhere them to the 2mm cardboard, burnishing them to ensure proper adherence to the cardboar...

DSA5 - Die Streitenden Königreiche Nostria und Andergast
by Roger L. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Ulisses Spiele
Date Added: 09/19/2016 09:55:35
DSA5 - Die Streitenden Königreiche Nostria und Andergast Wer Andergast und Nostria nicht kennt, bekommt durch den Klappentext erst einmal einen sehr dramatischen Einblick in die Region: Ewiger Zwist zwischen zwei Reichen! Raue Küsten, tödliche Steppen und die Gefahren der Waldwildnis! Tückische Drachenlibellen und finstere Marwolde! Moment mal, was sind überhaupt Marwolde? Ein Blick ins Buch hilft hier weiter, aber spannender ist natürlich die Frage, wie die Beschreibung der Region gelungen ist und wie gut sich das Buch für künftige Abenteuer am Spieltisch eignet. Inhalt Bei näherer Betrachtung sind die Streitenden Königreiche natürlich nicht gespickt mit Todesfallen, sondern recht beschauliche, wenn auch etwas rückständige Länder mit sittsamen Bauern, umtriebigen Händlern, enigmatischen Druiden und Hexen, sowie machtbewussten Adligen. Aber ja, den ewigen Zwist zwischen den beiden Königreichen und die Gefahren der Wildnis gibt es – und somit auch genug zu tun für die Spieler und deren Helden! Zuerst bekommt der Leser einen groben Üb...

The Slaver's Lash (Starting)
by BPOST B.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 09/19/2016 08:47:57
The Slaver's Lash (Starting) Warning : May contain spoilers Along with the spectacular SoTDL rulebook and sourcebooks, Schwalb Entertainment released a ton of short adventures to support the game, their level of quality varying wildly from good to truly embarrassing. The Slavers' Lash is... not one of the good ones. Have the PCs start the campaign in chains is a respected trope of fantasy gaming, because it works : it puts the PCs in a situation where they face hardship together and have to work together to escape. It's the perefect setup to build a team. In The Slavers' Lash, the PCs start in chains as part of a slave caravan and have to escape and... that's it. The generic plot you already started to build in your mind from reading the previous sentence is the exact plot of this adventure. There is nothing specific about it, no twist, no memorable NPCs, no flavour whatsoever, no suprise. It's basically the default adventure that came with the frame. So, re-read that premise, spend two minutes thinkin...

Book 9: Robot

Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 09/19/2016 01:54:56
Book 9: Robot While the book is extremely thorough and detailed in the creation of Robots as characters and adding a large degree of modularity towards creating and designing robots, the book's formatting has me frequently jumping back and forth between different areas of the book for every step of the process. In addition, some of the wording and syntax has caused multiple instances of confusion when arbitrating the rules and trying to determine what the intended goal was with some mechanics. However, overall it's a TREMENDOUS resource for a skilled referee. It can be intimidating, but after wrestling with the book for a couple days, I've found that it is extremely useful. With a little better editing and formatting, this book would be absolutely amazing, but even so, it's still great....

Cryptomancer
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Land of NOP LLC
Date Added: 09/18/2016 22:28:34
Cryptomancer Ten years since I last rolled a dice in an RPG, and this is the game that's finally lured me back. It takes a setting we all know - sword and sorcery fantansy - and adds a new layer that's smart, creative, and remarkably unique. No other game, that I'm aware of, takes concepts from infosec and cyberwarefare and integrates them more fully and thoughtfully into play. There are elements here of the old cyberpunk hacking and evasion games I cut my teeth on, but there's so much more to Crytpomancer than rolling your 'hacking' skill and hoping for the best. It requires, on a deep level, thinking and planning oriented around modern information security concepts and tradescraft. To my mind, that's what really makes Cryptomancer stand out - it presents a set of challenges that are fresh and unique, and requires solutions that are equally outside the traditional RPG box. I'll add that the game also gives us a setting filled with tension, danger, and constant second-guessing. Artwork an...

Shadow of the Demon Lord
by Mark M.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 09/18/2016 20:54:17
Shadow of the Demon Lord The cover says it all: if that's the kind of dark fantasy your soul hungers for, then this superb game delivers in gobbets. Combining a lean, clean system with player options which are always expanding without ever overwhelming, and a deep and doomed demon-haunted world, this one-stop book is everything you need to launch a hundred campaigns. Table play is fast and brutal with rules that just stay out of your way, and the story is always rampant with opportunities thanks to ingenious d20 table based prompts sprinkled throughout, from your character's prize possession to the madness that afflicts them. For our group of old punk rockers and metal heads, this feels like the game we've waited thirty years to arrive. We're hooked. The panopoly of PDFs expand the game at your discretion; the main book is all you need, but if like a first-time ghoul you hunger for more, then dip in to whatever intrigues you. It's all diabolically good. [Disclaimer: as Campaign Coins, I liked this gam...

Colonial Gothic: Rulebook Second Edition

Publisher: Rogue Games, Inc

Colonial Gothic: Rulebook Second Edition I actually really like this setting and system, it's very unique in its execution of character building and advancement. There are a few major typo's here and there such as the 45 a tribute points and the constant reference to willpower strength and dexterity as atributes(which is why I rated it 4 instead of 5) but otherwise I am very pleased with this game so far. I do hope rules for mechanical invention could be added at some point, so that players could design such things as the Turtle submarine and such, but one can only hope....
