Space Opera: Star Sector Atlas 2: Mercantile League
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/04/2009 20:36:43

Besides the culture and history of the League itself (I liked the period of Fadds), this is a very diverse sector with a wide variety of interesting worlds and political tensions.

Space Opera: Seldon's Compendium of Starcraft 1
by Naomi B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/04/2009 01:08:28

Space Opera was the very first RPG that I bought and it fell apart a long time ago. I love the psionic rules in this game and prefer to use them over other rules - they slot in very nicely. The spaceships in these books are not as nicely drawn as those nowadays but you can see where recent RPGs got their designs from. The Banner is the basic outline in every other game I've seen and the Nike is not far behind. When Space Opera reached New Zealand all those years ago RPG was in its infancy here and the only competition was D&D. Space Opera provided the necessary basics for the ignorant (me) about life in space that wasn't covered in Star Wars. And that is what this game is all about - a rolicking space adventure set in any universe you want. I loved it and still do. It may be old but it has great backbone that you can update with other books or use as is. As for clarity in download and print - they seem to be better than the original books but could still use some refining.

I only gave 4 stars as these books are old but they were worth 5 in the old days, if not more.

Age of Fighting Sail: Heart of Oak
by Skipper S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/11/2009 11:41:42

This is an excellebnt set of rules. Its one of the best for single ship combat or when each player controls a single ship (two max). You will not be able to run Trafalgar or other major battles without a lot of players, but small actions are a joy. The rules were written with an eye towars real sailing tactics and the sailing model is very realistic. Combat is good too, but the highlights of this game is the sailing. This is not a "beer and pretzle" game, but is a good simulation.

Liked: Love the rules and really enjoy this as a game.

Dislikes: The scans just were not up to par. i was a little disapponted in the qulity of these scans

SUMMARY: Its a must have for Napoleonic era sailing ships. Only the quality of the scans earn the loss of a star, the game itself is a five star game.

Space Opera: Star Sector Atlas 5: United Ranan Worlds
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/09/2009 21:40:02

This depiction of a Communist alien stellar power draws on many real-world examples (particularly Chinese and early Soviet) to describe their ever-so-slightly comic society with great depth and interest. Their history is a good read also, giving further insight into their Blarad and Klackon neighbours. The PDF is not bookmarked.

Bushido

What can I say? This is a classic. The game system will be familiar to anyone who has played aftermath! or Daredevils.

Age of Fighting Sail: Heart of Oak
by William V. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/24/2008 02:11:24

It looks like a very meaty ruleset for its slim 50 or so pages, chock full of nautical crunch to satisfy the barnacle-clad old salt in you. In terms of complexity it may rank alongside Birnie's "Action Under Sail". If you're looking for a simple beer-n-pretzels kinda game, this may not be it. However if detailed ship-to-ship combat and realistic manoeuvres are what you crave, then "Heart of Oak" is the naval wargame for you! The scan is mediocre at best with some pages' text looking a bit pale and hard-to-read, and a labelled diagram of a full-rigged ship is poorly reproduced and may not be helpful unless you're already familiar with the maritime jargon. The period illos are too dark in the scan and it is hard to discern the subject-matter of the pictures, making them nothing more than a waste of printer ink. As I printed the PDF, some of the last few pages refused to print at all save for the watermark. Perhaps the maker of this PDF file can post a new, improved version that does not have problems in the printing process. 4/5 stars.

Villains and Vigilantes
by David J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/19/2008 17:48:37

Villains and Vigilantes is an oldie of course but once upon a time it was one of the big superhero systems. It does some interestingly unfashionable things that modern systems don't. The semi-random character generation is something a lot of gamers would reject out of hand but it was my experience as a GM that the random roll system really opened my mind to character possibilities I would never have otherwise thought of. It made great inspiration for my villain making. Apart from that, the combat system, while once again an old fashioned one relying on the full polyhedral range of dice is straightforward, unambiguous, and well designed to accomodate the varying power levels produced by the dice driven character generation process. However, V&V's mechanics are very combat oriented and neglect things like detective work. Still, for me, the character generation alone was worth the five bucks and the basics are covered.

The Pentacle Plot
by Edward J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/26/2008 16:05:09

Fun take on the obligatory alternate Earth adventure. Worth a look, if you can forgive the publishers only giving you a glimpse of Vine' rather than an overview (which I'm not sure I can or not).

Crisis at Crusader Citadel
by Edward J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/26/2008 16:03:26

Considered a classic, I understand, when it was printed (and it is still highly regarded to this day) I find CACC fun and enjoyable. Isn't that what everyone looks for in a game? Whether it is or not, this is a slice of an era in superheroes where they actually put some thought into the variety of characters they were presenting & working hard not to duplicate others with their abilities & eccentricities. Does it work its magic for today? Yeah, if you're into this sort of thing. It has an innocent fun aspect I found refreshing that might actually put others off a bit when they'd rather do something grittier and darker.

Most Wanted, Volume 3
by Edward J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/26/2008 15:59:42

More chaos & mayhem makers for V&V. That sums up this product, which presents a variety of characters worthy of anyone's supers campaign. While a couple of the characters might be laughable today (okay, they might have even been laughable when this was originally printed, too), it still offers something vibrant and new if played right.
