Metahumans Rising
Publisher: House Dok Productions
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]

Nice game about superpowered beings! I like how it's not trying to force the morality of the Silver Age/Bronze Age/whatever on the reader. Instead, it gives you options to create your own setting.

And, as I said in the review about Fractured Kingdom, it's nice that the system is that versatile. It's also nice that you can actually stat up an unpowered human (Batman, anyone?) and have him/her compete with the powered beings as an equal. Batman, for example, would simply have a powerful fighting style and maybe some additional points for his Batarangs.

Fractured Kingdom
Publisher: House Dok Productions
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/28/2020 09:11:49

A cyberpunk system with a setting I actually like. And the characters have been empowered by their contact with Outer Realms. In short, this is what happens when you cross cyberpunk with urban fantasy. Which, IMO, fits much better than crossing it with D&D-style fantasy like...some other cyberpunk games.

And it definitely helps that the system is actually pretty good. I mean, few games can allow you to play both a brutal, quick street fight and a long, gruelling boxing/MMA match!

Well, this one can. And best part of it, it does it without the dicepools ever getting over 6d6!

That's a great modern-day setting! That's what I wanted Scion to be. I like this game (in this edition) better, though!

Dreams are an ancient theme in myth, often considered linked to magic. Thus, this is an welcome addition to my library.

That's an overlooked pearl of a game. The mechanics are great,working without "clutches" like Destiny points. The cards option is great for forum games. And playing a Bast is great fun!

Servants of Gaius
Publisher: Bedrock Games
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/21/2020 22:34:42

The Introduction recounts some of the inspirations for this game, the chief being Robert Graves's I, Claudius and Claudius the God novels. Those happen to be the exact novels that got me interested in Roman history. And you can easily influence world history from there!

The Maelstrom Companion
Publisher: Arion Games
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/22/2017 03:13:24

It's a supplement that fills some important holes in the original game, including adding info on the Reformation. And seriously, any game set in this period that doesn't address one of the greatest problems of the time, would be lacking - so this was a quite needed supplement!

Sects of the Martial World: Temple of the Jade Mercies
Publisher: Bedrock Games

Great wuxia supplement! The Sect can easily be used for PCs and villains alike, or even transplanted to other settings, in which case the meaning of the Chinese names can be used for sobriquets of criminals. I mean, that's a supplement with criminal religious organisation, there's almost nothing setting-specific about it!

Mythic Rome
Publisher: Design Mechanism
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/26/2016 06:14:32

Excellent, well-researched product! And unlike Mythic Britain, it focuses more on the Rome part, and less on the Mythic - though the mythic is clearly present, too. It just gives enough info that you could feel the athmosphere of the times. Great job, Design Mechanism!

Scourge of the Demon Wolf
Publisher: Bat in the Attic Games
by Asen G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/26/2016 06:12:06

Excellent, non-linear adventure! The relationships between the main factions are clear, and it requires thinking more than charging in head-first (though if you want to resolve it by charging in head-first...feel free to). I would have liked a bit more description of the various locales, but that's not a big enough ommission to take away a whole star from an otherwise superb adventure...so 5 stars it is!

The Miller's Tale
Publisher: Serpent King Games

Date Added: 12/26/2015 08:23:12

That's how adventures should be written: a cast of NPCs that actually have characters and actually don't just tell you what you want to know...not outright. A mystery that needs resolving. An open license to deal with what's happening. And, if you want, a final confrontation.

Now add PCs tto the mix, shake well, serve while slightly warm, see what happens!
