Revelations in Cold Iron
von Michael S.
Verlag: Dancing Lights Press
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 19:11:10
Revelations in Cold Iron I think this is fantastic. I'm a big fan of Berin's work and Dancing Lights Press products in general, and I didn't see this one coming (he's so busy doing background-work-type texts for DLP). OK so the game is obviously inspired by political events of the past few years (especially the last two). If you're as frustrated as I have been watching the newsfeeds, you're looking for a game with which to vent your frustrations, and you like streamlined mechanics, check this one out. Pros: The Lighthouse system is easy to use and intended to foster collaborative storytelling.There are shades of FATE with respect to character development and managing dice rolls. With this as a mechanical foundation, Revelations in Cold Iron presents a setting reminiscent of the older World of Darkness... except that the gritty badness kinda errily familiar --and current! I like the paranoia, near-hopelessness, and desperate feel. The bad guys are untouchable, and really bad. They'rein positions to offer...

Maps for Empire of the Petal Throne
von Niall T. S.
Verlag: M.A.R Barker's World of Tekumel
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 16:20:35
Maps for Empire of the Petal Throne Only buy these maps if you want to support the Tekumel Foundation, or if you want to complete a collection of old school material. They're not very nice to look at, the print and labels are hard to read, and there are only two maps. The Eastern half of the continent described in Swords and Glory Vol. 1 is not included (most of Salarvya). Honestly, you could just download the preview, which includes both maps!

Trusty Tavern Menus
von Ben D.
Verlag: Fat Goblin Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 14:09:05
Trusty Tavern Menus The **Trusty Tavern Menus** cards are FANTASTIC! I wish I’d known about these years ago! Each card is broken down into 4 tidbits of information: name, descriptive paragraph about the tavern (including info about the owner and renting beds), a menu (with different meals, drinks, and prices), and rumors related to the tavern. It would have made running my games move a little faster if I’d been able to just draw a card and read the info instead of trying to make up stuff on the spot. You know how players are, if they see their GM squirm, they keep putting the pressure on. ;D...

vs. Stranger Stuff Official Playing Card Deck
von Ben D.
Verlag: Fat Goblin Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 14:02:45
vs. Stranger Stuff Official Playing Card Deck I just got my deck of **vs. Stranger Stuff** playing cards in today. The cards are high quality, and printed well. The art is intentionally distressed to give them a more ominous feel. You can easily use these cards for any card game and obviously the **vs. M Engine** games. They certainly aren't "necessary," as any deck of cards work for **vs.**, but, they add a fun bit of immersion. This is a 52 card deck, no jokers included. My one critique of the art is this: the King and Queen cards have skulls wearing crowns. The art is the same, but says “KING” or “QUEEN” in the crown. I think the Jack and Ace are much more interesting as they are a bloody knife, and occult iconography respectively....

DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e)
von Tosh L.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 13:51:19
DDAL05-10 Giant Diplomacy (5e) I liked this module, I liked the puzzles, I liked the contests, I liked Gralm, I just thought that it was a bit too long for a two-hour mod. There are two fights, a puzzle section, and then a pretty long roleplaying section. It sounds doable in 3 - 3 1/2 hours, but two is kinda pushing it. Other than that, I thought it was great!

DDAL05-09 Durlag's Tomb (5e)
von Tosh L.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 13:48:27
DDAL05-09 Durlag's Tomb (5e) I liked this module, I thought it was well-written, well thought out, and well-executed. I just had some minor issues with visualization and maps. A lot of these encounters and puzzles had a lot to do with spacing, and some maps weren't present and/or were confusing (I'm looking at the gelatinous cube one specifically). Other than that, though I really enjoyed it!

DDAL05-08 Durlag's Tower (5e)

Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 13:44:46
DDAL05-08 Durlag's Tower (5e) This is an incredibly fun mod that I have had a lot of fun running. While some of the encounters are on the easy side (the orc fiends/tanurukk's [spelling]) the boss fight makes up for all of that and more with a very enjoyable fight. Getting into the tower itself is relatively easy, but I think that Alan may have gone overboard with all of the different possibilities and the results of them, but hey, more writing means more work so who am I to judge!

DDAL05-13 Jarl Rising (5e) This mod is... ok. I wouldn't place it on my top anything, but it still has an ok railroad story, ok fights, and a somewhat forgettable (albeit challenging) boss fight. I would work on making sure that you have a bit of a more... centralized story line as this seems to be a very filler adventure.

DDAL05-12 Bad Business in Parnast (5e)
von Tosh L.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 09:27:14
DDAL05-12 Bad Business in Parnast (5e) This is a mystery module done well, characters have become more fleshed out, choices have consequences, and the player's don't always know what to do (which can *sometimes* be a good thing). The DM is also given a lot of creative freedom to tell their own story while adhering to the basic skeleton structure of this mystery, which I really enjoy. I think that everyone should look at this module to see what's a good murder mystery.

von Tosh L.
Verlag: Wizards of the Coast
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 09:25:02
DDAL05-14 Reeducation (5e) This is a module that really doesn't know how tier 3 works. The fights are easy and simply to the point that any group that has even pregenerated characters should be able to completely ROFLstomp them. At tier 3 most deadly fights become normal, while most hard fights become easy (talking about encounter strength from the DMG). Also, the boss is a nameless vampire in the tier 3 adventure the SEASON AFTER YOU JUST KILLED A VAMPIRE. This seems incredibly poorly planned, as a party who went through Curse of Strahd would have so many vampire ruining items....

Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 08:53:55
DDAL06-01 A Thousand Tiny Deaths (5e) This mod is great. Travis has written this with an obvious expertise that seriously shows. I am a HUGE fan of the format of the new adventures and Travis has excelled at using them correctly. The traps are clever, and the constant threat of the kobolds makes everything a fast-paced, extremely enjoyable adventure. The boss fight is also very enjoyable, containing lots of threats and also awesome moments. Finally, I love the magic item deception. It's quite funny.

Freiheit für Schwarzenbrück - Teil 1 der Finsterland-Kampagne
von Roger L. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Georg Pils
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 06:46:32
Freiheit für Schwarzenbrück - Teil 1 der Finsterland-Kampagne Revolutionäre und Ränkeschmiede, Freiheit oder Knechtschaft – die erste groß angelegte Kampagne aus der eigenen Feder von Georg Pils und Michael Prammer widmet sich den ganz großen politischen Themen. Ein Hauch von Vormärz-Geschichte und hohe kreative Anforderungen machen diese Kampagne zu einer Perle. Was ist mächtiger: die Feder oder das Schwert? Nachdem die erste lange Kampagne Dracolith als Fanprojekt von den Finsterland-Machern übernommen wurde, bringt das Team um Georg Pils nun eine Kampagne aus eigener Feder auf den Markt. In Zeiten von „fake news“ und „Lügenpresse“, in denen das gedruckte Wort einerseits an Glaubwürdigkeit verliert, andererseits wie nie zuvor in rasantem Tempo zur Meinungsbildung beiträgt, entführt Freiheit für Schwarzenbrück in eine dem Vormärz (1815-1848) ähnliche Ära, in welcher die Presse einerseits ihr Selbstbewusstsein ausbildete, andererseits mit staatlicher Zensur zu kämpfen hatte. An der Seite des mutigen Zeitungsverlegers Erich Dwořak versuchen die...

Coriolis Atlas Compendium

Coriolis Atlas Compendium http://wp.me/p1Hoys-9Zp Der Dritte Horizont endet nicht an den Docks der Raumstation Coriolis. Vielfältige Sternensysteme und uralte Geheimnisse warten dort auf wagemutige Entdecker und neugierige Forscher. Doch auch gefährliche Gegenspieler und mysteriöse Wesen lauern im Dunkel zwischen den Sternen auf unvorsichtige Raumfahrer... Im letzten Monat durfte ich euch das neue SciFi-Rollenspiel Coriolis vorstellen. Das Regelwerk ist schon ziemlich dick und umfangreich, aber der Blick auf Details fehlte noch. Das Coriolis Atlas Compendium liefert nun etwas Stoff zu einzelnen Sternensystemen und bisher nur angerissenen Mysterien des Dritten Horizonts. Für alle, die sich nicht die ganze Rezension zum Grundregelwerk durchlesen möchten: Der Dritte Horizont ist eine Ansammlung von Sternensystemen, die durch Sprungportale miteinander verbunden sind – ganz ähnlich wie bei Mass Effect. Das Zentrum dieser Region, die seit einem Krieg von Horizont Eins und Zwei abgeschnitten ist, ist die Raumsta...

Narcosa

Verlag: Neoplastic Press
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 04:31:23
Narcosa An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive book clocks in at 108 pages, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of ToC, 1 page weird glyphs, leaving us with 104 pages of content. The full-color cover artwork is included as a jpg and the scale-less map is also included thus. I own the softcover print version of this book, which sports the map as a back cover, just fyi. I will base my review mostly on the print version. While there is also a hardcover version, I do not own it. This review was sponsored by one of my generous patreons, to be undertaken at my leisure. "Someone has read Carcosa!" Ouch, ouch, ouch...hey, I promised I'll use that quote! Anyways, this book is an obvious and in a not really subtle way, a homage to aforementioned classic book, but it could be also called a community labor of love or a collective riff and expansion. The premise of this book was to have a lot of different authors pool their creative impulses. The basic thesis of Narcosa can be summed up as "DUUUDE...

Deadly Gardens: Ghost Spore Swarm
von Thilo G. [Fester Rezensent]
Verlag: Rusted Iron Games
Hinzugefügt am: 08/14/2017 04:27:47
Deadly Gardens: Ghost Spore Swarm An Endzeitgeist.com review This installment of the Deadly Gardens-series clocks in at 5 pages, 1 page front cover, 1/2 page SRD, leaving us with 3.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! As always, we begin with two magic items - the first of which would be angry hornet, an enchanted blowgun dart: The dart, when fired at a target within 2 range-increments and misses, suddenly animates, trying to hit the target on the subsequent round, ignoring cover relative to the shooter - the dart buzzes around the victim, basically. The victim can try to outrun it or swat it out of the sky, though. The item takes winds and AoE-effects into account as well - flavorful and actually works, in spite of the complexity of the required rules-language - kudos! The festering angry hornet adds Con-damage and makes saving versus poisons harder, but otherwise works pretty much like the base hornet. As in all of these, we also receive an assortment of natural items: Glacier Toad Hide can keep con...
