Fantasy Ships 2
by Shane S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/20/2020 15:24:03

Though its mechanics are a little outdated when compared with a modern RPG, the deckplans and narrative descriptors are helpful and cross-compatible with any system. At its current pricepoint, this item is certainly worth the purchase.

It's also worth mentioning that this is the only supplement I've encountered that includes the layout and stats for a schooner, which I needed for my campaign.

Markets and Merchandise, OpenD6 Version
by Aki S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/15/2019 18:23:39

Overall this a well presented and useful addition to D6 Fantasy games with only a couple of small issues.

  1. No copy edit was done of the final product as there are a number of missing vales that only have the tag "_Value" instead.
  2. The odd layout of the book and lack of bookmarking in the pdf will make using it as a referrence more difficult than it should be.
  3. No combined price lists in the appendixes.

Fantasy House, Free Version

As with all of Avalon's products, this has great graphics and easy assembly. Definitely a good way to introduce oneself to their product line.

Wizards and Gunslingers
by Jon M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/20/2014 02:12:45

Custom system, but well organized. I haven't played it, but giving 5 stars because it's complete with rules, setting, maps, tools to quickly construct scenarios, put together NPCs and good tips for new GMs. Definitely leans towards creative role-playing and story telling and not for crunchy combat. Good for groups that want to have an adventure, rather than groups who want to compare how many hitpoints their weapon can dish out per round. (You can probably sense my own bias here)

Avalon Models, Skeletons
by Eric E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/01/2014 20:20:57

A nice set. good artwork, and not too many fiddly edges to cut around. I like the bases but the 28mm size has 11 models on a sheet and only 6 bases. A sheet of just bases would be a nice addition.

Fantasy House, Free Version
by Maria M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/23/2013 15:00:38

Beware: this schematics lacks a few tabs that you're supposed to think to cut out yourself or add when you glue the print-out to cardboard. It's the only way to fix the roof on the walls and the door frame on the front wall, unless you use a foam core as a basis. The instructions mention this, but it's not clear why these tabs weren't just marked on the schematics like the other ones.

Also, the schematics mention the "ornate beam tab", but this piece is just not here. I guess it's a left-in reference from a bigger paper model which this house is originally a part of.

This is supposed to be an entry model. The way it is, it's rather confusing, and a poor display of publisher's superior quality.

Avalon Counter Sets, Monsters Set #1
by Roger D. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/13/2013 11:32:09

certainly an unusual set of creatures and you can't beat the price. Art can be a tad stilted

Avalon Design Elements, Sci-Fi Set 1
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/07/2013 02:47:47

The Sci-Fi elements PDF is 6 pages long, with 3 pages being the actual product. Pages 3, 4 & 5, contain the graphic elements; page 5 (which looks like metal deck plating), could be used for a small battle map, especially if a few pages are printed off.

Pages 3 & 4, look like pieces of metal framing. Page 1 (the front cover), gives you an idea of how to use the product.

It's not bad, but it's not fantastic; but there could also have been some more included.

It looks like the kind of thing a person with decent graphic software and experience could do themselves.

At £0.64 pence you get what you pay for.

Avalon Design Elements, Celtic Set #4
by Steffon W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/25/2012 07:38:08

Delivered in PDF form. This means if you use Illustrator or InDesign like myself it's difficult to 'pick apart' the elements for use. These would be much more use as vectors or another format like svg. Avoid.

Combat!
by Sc N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/07/2012 07:42:21

Great to do things in modern era, but lacks enemies to fight or foreign forces, the book is all about playing USA Forces which would be fine if you had something to fight against, but it lacks even terrorists, I mean come on not even an AK-47 is listed or an RPG or how to create a non-American trooper for the GM to make NPC's, no Russian or Chinese or European weapons or vehicles, very lame!

Markets and Merchandise, Pathfinder Version
by Sean H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 07/16/2012 15:14:46

Markets and Merchandise (Pathfinder Edition) is a collection of useful information on market, what you can buy at them, and wide varieties of things to buy. The Pathfinder conversion (this was originally written for a different system) is rough on a few mechanical things in the weapons, armor and alchemical sections sections. Even with those flaws it covers a considerable amount of useful territory such as currencies, a wealth of interesting trade items, prices for services from the profane to the sacred. I hope Avalon Games revises the mechanical sections noted above so that I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of these products for free from the publisher for the purpose of these reviews.

Leviathans
by Ricardo N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/20/2012 11:03:02

This product delivers what it promises: a simple set of rules for battles involving steam war machines and infantry. Infantry is mounted on square stands, with multiple stands per unit, while the machines (whether tanks, walkers or flying units) use different sizes of bases.

The rules are clearly written, and include many examples. The book has a good layout, with only a few typos and pixelated illustrations. The colored background and margins mean that I won't be printing the whole book. It would be great if pages 30 and 31 (infantry table and quick reference) could be provided in black and white, just like they did with the templates. The book also includes three scenarios that are helpful for players to figure how to set up their own.

Bookkeeping during the game is mostly restricted to the war machines, which require a data sheet to keep track of damage, steam output and equipment. A roster sheet could be used for infantry but really, a few markers to track damage is all needed.

The game includes a system to build your war machine, along with some sample builds. It's not overly complicated and allows a lot of variations. The "troop transport" option is the only one that gave me concern, as it is not limited by the war machine's size.
