Shadows of Forgotten Kings [5e]
Publisher: ZERObarrier
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/16/2018 00:29:56

This is a great short drop in location for use when your players are near a jungle. The maps, as always, are killer Dyson Logos beauties, and the words are the usual high concept creepiness from Zzarchov Kowolski. The art by Huth sets the tone for each location and helps you really get what the situation is like, though there could be more illustrations! New spells and several magical items round out the back of the piece (I appreciate magical items with drawbacks- looking at you, Magic Pineapple!). Worth the bucks!

This short free hack of Laser and Feelings is hilarious! I don't watch the show it is based around but now I kinda want to just to see the train wrecks that you can adapt to the game. Mechanically simple and well presented.

Stay Frosty
Publisher: Garske Games
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/10/2017 14:08:06

STAY FROSTY is a killer little game that you can use to tell stories of your favorite Bug Hunt or Planetary Raid MIssion. A slick, stripped back roll over stat mechanic, some sweet tables (I especially like the name table and the weapons/gear sections) mixed with some nice chase rules and a Tension mechanic mean the DM doesn't have to worry about the players getting sidetracked and keeps the action fast and furious. If you've ever watcedh any film from the 80s that features mass explosions, creepy beasts and rad guns and you want to run that then I highly recommend this little gem. The art is cool and simulates wicked awesome NES style games. Dig it!

The Chaos Gods Come to Meatlandia
Publisher: Knight Owl Publishing
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/24/2016 14:26:07

Disclosure- I was sent a copy for review purposes.

This book, in short, is exactly what it purports to be: a toolbox for running adventures in the city of Meatlandia. Designed for use with the Lamentations of the Flame Princess rules, it is easily portable to other OSR systems. It is a collection of NPCs, spells, factions and classes pertaining to Meatlandia, a city ruled by warring factions of Carnomancers, or Meat Wizards. Highlights include details of the major NPCs that control sections of the city, a massive collection of spells that deal with meat magic, and a couple of bard subclasses that will easily fit into any gonzo style campaign. I personally plan to use Our Lady of Sorrows, the physical manifestation of the city's consciousness, the next time my players hit a wall- literally, the next time they strike a wall in a city they will meet her.

Another standout section is the detailed Magic in Meatlandia part, which details hiw meat magic works and what it entails. This area is rich to plunder and I can see myself setting up some meat wizards for later use. Also of interest is the Chaos DJ subclass- you gotta love a class that will resort to absolute destruction of everything in order to prove a point.

The spells section is good for PCs wanting to try out wacky flesh and bone manipulation techniques, and the bestiary, while limited, can easily be expanded on for some truly grotesque results! Magic items are cool (especially the Meat Shield!), and the hooks/rumours/game seeds sections are solid, though spread out over three sections of the book. Here is my major gripe- quite a bit of the book could be condensed and organized a bit better- hooks are in three.places, magic and magic classes are scattered, and the bestiary is broken up strangely. Another editing pass wouldn't hurt, either, but overall this is a fun book for a weird place that will fit into any gonzo campaign and would work nicely to give your players a curveball in a more straightforward campaign. Good work!

Null Singularity
Publisher: Steve Bean Games
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/02/2016 12:35:42

As a direct descendant of Black Sun Deathcrawl, Null Singularity succeeds at carrying the tone of its parent forward without sacrificing originality. Simple, concise rules for timekeeping help to build a sense of urgency while allowing the doomed players a slim chance of hope, mayhaps a bit more than BSDC. The use of the DCC Thief class as a basis for Voidants is perfect- at the end, hurtling through space, we'll all steal whatever is around to sustain our fragile dying breath. Definitely recommended for DCCers, fans of storygame (forge) style play and fans of the end times.

The Valley of the Seven Sisters
Publisher: Frugal GM
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/28/2014 21:57:01

Another must have for the GM that likes to run on the fly. This is handy and I have used to flesh out a wilderness encounter roll when one of my players had to leave early and I didn't want to send the rest of the team ahead to their possible demise. I really appreciate how Christopher adds the 5 Ws and H on the back page and I like the folder approach. Keep on putting these out!

Lookout at Logger's Lake
Publisher: Frugal GM
by Jarrett C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/28/2014 21:52:33

This quick little read is a must have for any GM that subscribes to the 'less is more' school of prep. Light encounter info peppered across a small color map make for a nice evening's worth of sandboxing. It's labeled OSR but it has no stats listed so I would say it can be run anywhere. I've used it in 5e and had no problems. I highly recommend Christopher's other small pieces as well. Cheers and thanks!
