Runaway Hirelings (2018)
by Abigail L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/20/2019 13:30:32

when I first heard about this game I instantly knew I HAD to play it, not only is Thomas' art just amazing but the concept is great! so, when a few weeks later Thomas gave me a copy so I could review it for him, I was ecstatic! I really wanted to play this with my local group, but scheduling sucks and we haven't had a chance yet, (soon, though, soon!) so I decided to do a run through on my discord server instead, and OMG we had such a blast!

This really is a no prep game, just give the main rules a read over, hand out the character sheets and rules references and you are ready to go, everything is pretty self explanatory. Game play is similar to Baron Munchhausen where players tell convoluted and extravagant stories of past and present exploits, but RH has the Dunarch to give prompts and obstacles and adds dice for extra spice and desperation. We ended up with wonderful stories of disaster and miraculous success told by nearly inept hirelings as they bumbled their way through the dungeon. The hardest part I found at first as the Dunarch was coming up with weird and exciting challenges that didn't rely on combat. But the once everyone got into it and the players descriptions got more and more interesting and hilarious, everything just flowed perfectly.

Our game involved a lowly farmer creeping along the floor with a barrel over his head pretending to be a worm to escape sentient statues, a torchbearer seducing a red dragon, a fool giving a lecture on the merits of a potato stuck on a stick as a form of art criticism as so much more. It was one the most hilarious games I've played in a while. You should all totally go get yourself a copy, and play the heck out of it.

Runaway Hirelings (Original)

Scenario from a new angle. Most or all of the rooms they have supposedly been through, so it is up to the players to say what is in it or where from their "memories".

Amethyst Rules-Lite Role-Playing
by Michael J. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/09/2015 14:43:40

What is there is good. However what is not there is more important. It says to make attributes or skills this way, but never mentions what the attributes or skills are, how to run hit points and damage. but no mention of how to tell how many you have. It is really only rules lite since many of the details are missing.

Hey there Mike! When I originally started working on Amethyst Rules-Lite the game was split into two parts. The rules (this PDF) and the play-sets. The rules gave all the basic information and the play-sets would have all the setting content (questions, generation rules, characters etc...). This was at a time when I was posting content through blog pages while playtesting a play-set called Inconceivable Investigations (think investigative horror ala Cthulhu). I am sorry that the second document was never added. I remember finishing it, but must have forgotten to upload it. I\'ll be going through my files to grab the second PDF to upload (if not tonight then tomorrow morning). As for the problems with the original PDF, I will be going through that over the next week! Thank you Michael for the review! Have a nice day!
Stickmen: Basic Doodle Adventures

First of all, you have to take the game for what it is–an extremely light weight party-type RPG. For that, it succeeds admirably. The rules are so short and simple you can read through them in a few minutes. Character creation literally takes 30 seconds and is one of the most fun aspects of the game. The mechanics are essentially flip a coin. Don't expect a lot of deep character development, simulationist rules, or profound moral dilemmas, and you shouldn't be disappointed.

It is very useful. I look forward to using it. It will come in handy when I play the game.

Thanks I am glad you like what you see! However we are currently working on some updates for all of our products, to make them \"prettier\", which if you downloaded a propuct, free updates. As well, we have some more addons/expansions being finished up for release this month! But we have a long term plan that once we hace finished this product line we will be putting it into a print compendium, it will be sort of like the \"advanced\" edition.
