Action! System Core Rules (Free Version)
by Edward J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/26/2008 15:20:37

ACTION! offers a system that can support a variety of settings. It's a nice little system if you haven't settled on one to focus on, but it really doesn't offer much in the way that it resolves the usual mechanics for a game being played. Lots of potential if you have the time to invest.

Sengoku: Revised Edition
by Mike H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/20/2008 19:46:39

I ended up downloading more than $150 worth of RPG's and supporting material for my new addiction, Samaria skirmish. I would have been happy to get just a decent skirmish system. What I got was a great deal more!

Whoever wrote Sengoku must have done a 20 year study of Japanese culture. The historical and especially cultural information in this tome is beyond anything I could have imagined. The incredible depth and flavor is amazing. I could have stopped with this one. This, plus the Shinobi books are the King of Samurai RPG's. The character generation is the least painful and most complete, as you end up with a character with motivation and history.

We've standardized (at AoCM Wargame Club) on this one for the skirmish and RPG system. The Filmography gives me hundreds of new titles to search for (I already have dozens of classic Samurai movies).

Now, lets be fair. Printing this work out was a major challenge, particularly since Amazon has the book in print for about $22. The download is still well worth it if you are going to actually run the system as you will probably want to give the player a page or two here and there just to understand the character.

This is the utimate historical RPG system for Samurai RPG'ing. This is the one to get.

Action! System OGL Pack
by Todd M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/17/2008 13:44:06

A tight little system that you can modify and use under the OGL. Too bad Action! has been hidden in the shadow of other OGL's. Why? well, for a quick, cinematic and/or gritty adventure it does not take much to tweak for whatever environment or genre you wish to run it under. It is very customizable and I've found that InstantAction! rules are even easier to adapt for a quick "pick-up" game (and InstantAction! could probably be used for an extended campaign if one didn't want to use the full Action! System Rules)...

I'd rate it a 4 out 5 simply because it doesn't appear that any further development has occurred within recent [game publishing time] and the publisher's website links are not being maintained like they should. Other than that, it is quite a nice system that can be used for multiple genres.

Gunslingers: Wild West Action!
by Anton S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/08/2007 12:50:14

I nice Wild West RPG with a lot of historical info thrown in. You can play straight historical or go all the way to Saturday Matinee B-Western. Very complete price and equipment charts. Art was nice with an authentic look to most of it.

Action! System Core Rules (Full Version)
by Jerry L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/29/2007 00:00:00

Nice product for the price but not a lot of extras.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Uses six-sided dice, "familiar" feel, low cost.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Uses Metric System instead of standard measurement (feet, inches, etc.), no magic system, no Bestiary. But I think the latter two are on the back burner (SPACR should have magic, and there was mention on a post somewhere about the idea of a monster book of some sort) so they might appear EVENTUALLY.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

San Angelo: City of Heroes 1.5 (M&M Superlink, Action!)
by John S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/02/2007 00:00:00

There really isn't much I can say about this product that hasn't been said. It's quite simply excellent. You can see certain similarities with other city books that the authors have worked on (ie. Freedom City by Steve Kenson), but it still has it's own personality. Excellent work.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Almost everything<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Some editing needed to remove old Champion's references.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

A generic system, using point-buy to gain a character traits and skills in the way the player wants. If you're tired of systems that shoehorn you into certain roles, check this out for freedom.

Action! System Conversion Notes #1: d20
by Ice W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/30/2006 00:00:00

A necessity if you like d20, and its free! It covers d20 Modern as well as the skills from other d20 products. I can't tell if you can convert D&D, but that's not too big an annoyance.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: It wasn't that big. It might take some work to use, but at least on one end you don't have to scan through too many pages.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: It meantions the skill Spellcasting (Type), but does not say how it works.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Sengoku: Revised Edition
by Sean T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/26/2006 00:00:00

This is one amazingly researched game. It will teach you how to set your game in feudal era Japan and make it not only believable, but rich and immersive. The fuzion system is a nice medium level complexity game. If you really want to spice up the martial arts, then you can probably adapt it without too much difficulty using the Hero System (since Fuzion was originally a kind of "Hero Lite" back in the day).<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The immense research that went into explaining feudal era Japan and making it come alive. <br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: The only little niggling thing I can think of is having only greyscale artwork. But even then, the artwork is excellent.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
