Clanbook: Baali
Publisher: White Wolf
by jason l. [Verified Purchaser]

Baali are my favorite clan, and this book helped me come to that decision. WW should have rolled the followers of set up into the Baali, and made the Baali more prevalent. They have an actual reason to be evil (we are trying to keep Lovecraftian Horrors asleep), rather than "I like to see people fall from grace".

This is a great book, and very well written, but not for the faint of heart.

I AM ZOMBIE: Field Manual
Publisher: Make Believe Games
by jason l. [Verified Purchaser]

This is Mark's new masterpiece, it's ambitious as it is great.

This isn't a game where you play as a brainless zombie...no, you are one of the few and powerful 'TOXIC'...those still able to keep their sanity and mind after an infection.

Not only is the game world fresh, original, and innovative...but it has Mark's 'style' in it.

There's the faction, the competing philosophies, the awesome mythology and terminology that made Mark's previous classics great (for example, Vampire the Masquerade).

And to top it off, the Field Manual is beautiful. Every inch of every page is detailed with amazing artwork, and amazing setting design.

The rules are nice and simple, but offer interesting complexities. I found the rules manual to be a little confusing to read, but I was able to understand it fairly well after a 2nd re-read, which wasn't a problem since it's only 17 pages long.

I can't wait to play this game with my friends and I hope to see new books out with this setting in the future.

Wraith the Oblivion (1st Edition)
Publisher: White Wolf

Content: 10/10, Scan Quality: 6.5/10 I can't say enough good things about this game. The scan isn't perfect, but it does a decent job (the original print book is hard to read)

Wraith is a game that perhaps challenges the players a little too much. The setting and game constantly remind you of the ever looming approach of your own death and forces you to confront its reality.

You would think that makes the game depressing, but it's actually the opposite. The game becomes very life-affirming.

After a session of play, you will come out thinking and appreciating your own silly little life more. Your loved ones you take for granted will feel so much more precious to you. Your problems will not be so great and your existence will feel what it really is: a blessing.

Wraith, at its core, is about two major things: the things you leave behind after death and your own personal journey. What are your worst attributes? Can you feel your shadow tugging at your throughout the day? How do you confront it? If you were to leave this earth today, what would you miss the most? Do you appreciate it, or does its value get lost in the mad rush of daily life?

Wraith sometimes beautiful, sometimes sad, always challenging, and a complete home run as a medium for the art.

The writing, setting, general game mechanics are White Wolf at its best. Even if you aren't a big ghost-ish fan (I'm not), I promise you will get a lot out of this game.

Note: i originally wrote a bad review of the scan, but after looking at the original print cover, it's not so bad. The original book's first 35 pages were unreadable (who thought a grey background with black text was a good idea?).

Beautiful game, Beautiful art, great in-story fiction. I haven't read it all the way though, but just with what I've read, I feel I've gotten my money's worth.

Convention Book: Void Engineers
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

One of the best convention books i've read. A big change to the VE, but one some people may love (think space marines/aliens). The concept of 'threat null' is very enticing and just overall awesome.

The in-book fiction is some of the best I've read from WW also.
