Classes of NeoExodus: Mythic Machinesmith (PFRPG)

Classes of NeoExodus: Mythic Machinesmith (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review This pdf clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 7 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we? The machinesmith class is a deservedly beloved addition NeoExodus has contributed to many a group beyond the scope of its own campaign setting - and here we get the material needed to run these guys in a mythic context, so how do they hold up? We begin this pdf with the 10-tier Futurist mythic path - which already provides imho a basic issue: Is it a path for just the machinesmith class? The answer, thankfully, is NO. The path nets 4 hit points per tier and a path ability at every tier, with first tier granting one of 3 futurist revelations: Surprise grenade allows you to expend a swift action and mythic power to draw and throw an alchemical item, thrown weapon or grenade, suffering a penalty to saves equal to your tier. per se cool, but why lock alchemist bombs out of the equation? As...

Mythic Minis 52: Mythic Weapons An Endzeitgeist.com review All right, you know the deal - 3 pages - 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, let's go! -Blade-eating Battleaxe: This battleaxe can essentially dual-sunder as a standard action and apply mythic surge benefits to the two sunders. Furthermore, with the expenditure of mythic power, it allows for whirlwind-sundering and allows for reflexive sunderings to counter certain combat maneuvers and abilities. The complex mechanics required here actually work out very well - nice one! -Kinslayer's Knife: Nasty blade with blood biography and the target's relatives becoming apparent to the wielder, making this one very lethal for those carrying out a bloody vendetta. -Redflame Trollblade: A +1 flaming burst humanoid (giant) bane bastard sword that has its bane further enhanced versus trolls, while also sporting color-coded glowing warnings regarding the presence of certain types of adversaries. In the hands of mythic characters, it also...

Fantaji Universal Role-Playing Game
par Jay S. A. [Featured Reviewer]
Editeur: Anthropos Games
Date Ajoutée: 07/30/2015 04:11:32
Fantaji Universal Role-Playing Game Fantaji reminds me of Early Dark in the sense that both of them are clearly works of people who had a single, powerful vision. Fantaji's approach to gaming takes narrative elements and gamifys them, using Drama as a currency to push characters (or obstacles) further. The "Playing To" mechanic insures that all actions serve the hidden bounds of a story's themes and it all comes together like clockwork. That said, the elegance of the mechanics also makes it a little difficult to grasp. I've read through it and I understand it, but it wasn't easy. YOu will need to discard quite a bit of your old habits as far as RPG rules go. I definitely see spending more than a few practice sessions of work from all players to finally get it up and running smoothly, but once everyone gets it, Fantaji should run very well. In addition, Fantaji is very well illustrated and the layout is clean. The language used is pretty accessible, though there are a few parts which make me flinch just the slightes...

Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition The Dark Ages
par Jeffrey B.
Editeur: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Ajoutée: 07/29/2015 23:51:09
Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition The Dark Ages This book is extremely flavorful and thematic. It has some of the most evocative writing I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying in any roleplaying book. The explanation of the endless cycle of the hunt for blood is superb and really drives home what it might feel like to be a vampire in the Dark Ages. This historical portions are well researched, and where they deviate from history they follow a pattern which makes sense. Unfortunately the mechanics are scattered at best. The Disciplines are inconsistent in the extreme, particularly the three Physical Disciplines which are not remotely comparable in terms of power level or ease of use. The multiple-actions system is confusing and probably would have been better left out, though I can understand the desire to make Celerity not a must-have for any type of character who wants to win a fight. These shortcomings do not come close to the fantastic quality overall of the book, however, and I can still strongly recommend this to anyone...

Vampire 20th Anniversary Edition The Dark Ages This book is everything that I wished for when it was announced by Onyx Path Publishing, and that is to say it is a proper new edition of a beloved classic! For the PDF, the price-per-page is a steal, and the quality of the contents quite makes that price almost embarrassingly low. That's all you NEED to know, but there's more I'll tell... First, know that I've played Vampire since Second Edition came out in '92 (I was too much of a 'vampire snob' to even look at the First Edition... thanks Anne Rice!), and when Vampire: the Masquerade Twentieth Anniversary Edition was announced, I jumped on the opportunity to support it. The result was lovely, but in comparison to later Twentieth Anniversary releases (e.g. for Werewolf: the Apocalypse and the as-yet-to-be widely available Mage: the Ascension), the V20 wound up looking less like a 'new' edition than a polished omnibus collection with gorgeous new art. I do so love that book, no doubt, but V20 does not QUITE live up to what it could ...

Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls

Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls The original T&T came out the year I was born, and I first encountered the game in it's 5th edition when I was twelve, before I ever played D&D. I still find the Monster Rating system far easier than statted foes. This is the best edition of T&T since 5th [and I have all of the post 5th ones]. There are a lot more "clothes" on the rules, but at its heart, it's still the same easy to digest game. The book also contains probably the most comprehensive writeup of Ken St. Andre's Trollworld under one cover. Another fringe benefit to T&T is that the game has had one author at its helm for 40 years, and Ken St Andre and publisher Rick Loomis are still actively engaging us fans. I am looking forward to the hardcover. Now FBI needs to do a deluxe version of Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes....

Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls I like the art in dT&T. It draws a lot from Sword & Sorcery: fighting apes, Dinosaurs, Toad-men and Grey. I also like the timeless art nouveau style. Makes this an art piece itself. The rules make delvers stronger (there is a paragraph to upgrade legacy delvers), good for soloplayers too. They are really good (5.5 have been my favorite up to now). I especially like that rogues can specialise at level 7. Also it's interesting to get insight to Trollworld and the successes of Leotrah. This background together with the images gives T&T a strong feeling it never had before (I think)....

Rifts® World Book One: Vampire Kingdoms™, New Revised Edition
par Kevin M.
Editeur: Palladium Books
Date Ajoutée: 07/28/2015 15:23:36
Rifts® World Book One: Vampire Kingdoms™, New Revised Edition I read the original version of the Vampire Kingdoms over 20 years ago and it was interesting, had a few fun classes, items and NPCs as well as the vampire and ways to combat them in Rifts earth. It never was my favorite but after reading several of the revised books I thought I would give this a go. The other revised books have additional pages, new weapons, expanded data on the setting, new OCC classes, and little tweaks for additional clarity. In short, I though every other revision was a serious improvement. This book had all the things I liked removed from it. No information on the Yucatan peninsula, many of the races were removed, and nothing new story wise really grabbed my attention. If I was to advise a potential buyer of this product I would say buy the original edition that is also on DTRPG....

Other Dust
par John S.
Editeur: Sine Nomine Publishing
Date Ajoutée: 07/28/2015 10:10:15
Other Dust I come at Other Dust, Stars Without Number and Silent Legions from a slightly different angle. The first RPGs I played were crappy D&D 4e (with a minor affair with D&D 3x) and Call of Cthulhu. This means that I've never actually played the original games these systems are attempting to emulate with an "OSR" style. I just want to make it abundantly clear that if you aren't familiar with the older systems, it shouldn't put you off. Other Dust is a fantastically paired down system with enough wiggle room for fiddling and characters to feel different. It's nearly perfect, although I dislike the fiddlyness of figuring out what people are rolling for combat. Regarding writing, this guy blows my mind. His generators (which can be exported to almost any system you want) absolutely smash it out of the park. They are the best tools for facilitating sandbox gameplay I've ever seen. It's hard to look elsewhere....

Hyperspace Messenger 03 - Aliens

Hyperspace Messenger 03 - Aliens This is simply one of the best alien generators out there. It's reminiscent of the ACKS player guide with its standard, balance class-creation system, and you can really use it to make a class for any game or style that you want. Plus it's only a buck. This is a fantastic resource that you have to purchase if you're a fan of the OSR rules.

Supplement 11: Animal Encounters
par Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Editeur: Mongoose
Date Ajoutée: 07/28/2015 07:38:57
Supplement 11: Animal Encounters This book takes a look at a long-neglected aspect of Traveller which is, after all, a space exploration game: the creatures that you may encounter on other worlds. If you take the premise that life has developed on multiple planets (which given the sheer number of 'habitable' ones is pretty obvious), that life is not going to be identical wherever you go. Indeed, having exotic (to our eyes) lifeforms is part of the 'otherness' of visiting different planets during the course of your game - and if so inclined you can weave them into your plotline, anything from specimen-collecting or hunting trips to being attacked by some savage beast you didn't even know existed. When not playing engineers or the ship's chef, I quite often play a 'xenobiologist' whose very reason for being out in the black is to study the flora and fauna on the worlds he visits. If your game is one about exploration or colonisation, you are going to need to know about the creatures on the planets you investigate. Ev...

Village Map: Marsh Village This is nicely hand drawn, but the detail is even greater than the others from Raging Swan I own. Rather than the roofs being basically just an X, most the buildings have shingled roofs. The walk around town is made up of boards, the houses have doors and chimneys. Mr. Fayan is clearly the best of their cartographers. Has both a hi=res jpg and tiff, but lacks a tagged version...

Dragon Kings - Die Welt (PDF) als Download kaufen

Editeur: Ulisses Spiele
Date Ajoutée: 07/28/2015 02:10:48
Dragon Kings - Die Welt (PDF) als Download kaufen EDO – Elves, Dwarves, Orcs. Klassiker der Fantasy und somit auch fester Bestandteil von Pathfinder. Zumindest, wenn man auf der Standardwelt Golarion spielt. Aber wenn einem dieser Standardkram irgendwann fade erscheint, gibt es auch das eine oder andere Setting, das eben völlig anders ist. Für (Advanced) Dungeons & Dragons gab es, was solch alternative Settings angeht, dank Dark Sun eines, das eine gewisse Beliebtheit hatte und sich dadurch auszeichnete, dass es Elemente aus Fantasy und Endzeit kombinierte. Ressourcenknappheit, eine untergehende Welt, viel mehr Schattierungen von Grau als in den doch eher schwarz-weißen Fantasywelten, die man von D&D ansonsten gewöhnt war. Pathfinder hatte bisher kein derartiges Setting. Aber das hat sich nun geändert, denn niemand anders als Timothy Brown, seines Zeichens Erfinder von Dark Sun, hat im vergangenen Jahr mittels Crowdfunding ein neues Setting realisieren können: Dragon Kings. Dieses wurde dann für verschiedene Regelsysteme umgeset...
