Beyond Bightwater
von Mark W. [Verifizierter Käufer] Hinzugefügt am: 04/10/2019 20:17:02

I was part of the team that made this, so there may be some bias. But this is a 270+ page miracle of a project. And it's free! The number of interesting, exciting, strange and truly inspired ideas in it is staggering. The biggest surprise to me - however - is how everybody came together to create a coherent world in Beyond Bightwater. This was a volunteer effort with no initial plans beyond "let's make some hexes!" Everyone could have created disconnected, random hexes with no overarching structure, then called it a day. Instead, many included references to other hexes, or altered their own ideas to incorporate the developments in nearby areas. Others created the backstory, unifying the various settlements and giving the world a shared history from which we could all draw. Others made sure we ticked several logistical boxes (general descriptions, wandering monsters and other useful general charts, citation consideration, etc.) so that we could make the product available and usable.

The end result, in my opinion, is something that rivals any similar adventure on the market, and again for no cost at all. Yes, there will be encounters not explicitly connected to other elements of the world. But if you use this to run a game, you'll have a rich, fully-realized world from which to draw inspiration, and many directions (literal and figurative) for your players to explore.

I'm proud to have been a part of this, and to any who download and use it, I sincerely hope you enjoy it!

RPG Geek Random Tables
von Chris B. [Verifizierter Käufer] Hinzugefügt am: 06/17/2018 22:42:37

This suffers from the "Lol we are so random" mindset that the early 2000s had. The tables are not put in a way that it is easy to read either.

Originally published https://markrollsdice.wordpress.com/2017/11/09/review-entartete-kunst/

The RPG we all deserve.

"There is a spectre haunting gaming. It is the polemic. This is one. Maybe two. Madness, impertinence, incompetence, and degeneracy."

Veering drunkenly (on absinthe and heroin, no doubt) between perceptive discourses on the premises of our very boring, consistent style of RPGs, to outright parody like the alignment chart, to random quotes and paintings from postmodernists, existentialists, and the Nazis who burned their works. It’s a shame the author didn’t include swing music or jazz noises. see Wiki

Character creation, system, sample of play, and sample adventure are cut-ups of random unrelated games, and… it doesn’t exactly work, but it’s like hearing conversations in a crowd, and for a moment something interesting surfaces, and then is drowned out again.

The monster list is perhaps the only authoritative list ever, I can see no fault in it. Appendix N: Reading List includes such essentials as Junky by William S. Burroughs, and Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, which by themselves make it 50% more practically useful to gaming than most such lists.

Appendix P: Creating a Party on the Spur of the Moment is great advice, which makes me question how it got in here.

If I have any complaint, I do feel that Appendix Q: Glossary suffers from not being included in Appendix A: General Attributes Enumeration.

I cannot give this a star rating, because that’s just, like, my opinion, man.

It's perfectly understandable why the previous reviewers gave this game a bad review.

But I think it's awesome.

A parody of obtuse and self-important game design; it's as if Andy Warhol wrote an RPG. Not a game in any meaningful sense of the word, but mildly amusing. I don't regret the buck I spent on it.

It's just BAD! A F.A.T.A.L.ity on many counts. Being constructive you do get 250 pages to ponder in under 7 meg which is unusal for such works, usually they aren't even assembled well in PDF either
