Always/Never/Now
by Ryan M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/25/2013 18:10:06

WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS BEFORE NOW? This game is AMAZING. I mean, the obvious thing is that it's free, which means even if it was terrible it would be worth a look. But the fact is, it isn't terrible. It's actually not even mediocre. Not even good. It's great. The characters, the writing, the mechanics flow together seamlessly, and the game is a living monument to what design integration is all about. If you like narrative games, and character-oriented development and character advancement, this is a game for you. Following six former shadow-ops agents in a semi-near future full of cybernetic enhancement and corporate espionage (one mixing elements of Deus Ex, Corporation, and Cyberpunk 2020), Always/Never/Now boasts a narrative-driven core mechanic that ties each character's unique talents and abilities to their every attempted feat. Characters progress and gain abilities and skills through development and revelation of more of each character's personal story, while progressing through an elaborate, information-based mystery plot.

This game is free.

And it's one of the best narrative-based tabletops I've played in years.

You should really, really get it.

And then donate Will Hindmarch the $40+ that it's actually worth.

Always/Never/Now

Always/Never/Now starts at Lady Blackbird and takes off in its own direction. It's an adventure with the rules for a full game built right in.

The attached characters are great. They have strong, well defined starts, and room to grow.

The story is only somewhat fixed, but by following the setup it's fairly easy to make your own adventures in a similar vein.

Already running it with my group, and I have to say everyone is enjoying themselves immensely.

While plotline itself is not fully to my liking, the style of gaming suggested and overall quality and attention makes it a solid hit in my book. totally worth the waiting

The Pharmaware Rep
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 02/12/2013 09:05:31

Taking the concept of a 'computer virus' to a whole new level, this tale posits a world in which AIs run much of the infrastructure but are prone to become ill. The answer: pharmaware - carefully coded solutions to aberrant behaviour.

And much as in the real world pharmacutical salesmen scamper around with the hard sell, peddling their company's drugs to medical professionals, here salesmen market pharmaware to companies who run AI systems. Realistically portrayed in their high-pressure lifestyle, you are grabbed into their world and whisked into a sales meeting beside them.

But there is a blight on their horizon. Consider how mental health diagnoses and medication recommendations depend on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders rather than the opinion of the psychiatrist whose office you are sitting in... and think what would happen to the lives and livelihoods of pharmaware salesmen if someone put out a similar tome about AI behaviours...

... then download this book and find out!
