A wonderful trip down memory lane, and a very good collection of maps as well.

Future Armada: MisFortune
Publisher: 0-hr
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/03/2009 00:59:16

A very good product, even by FA standards! This product covers two container ships, the containers avalible, and the container-lifter craft (Sherpa) in detail, complete with maps of all of them.

This product really moves the sci-fi design from the 70s-90s 'fixed ship' designs to the real life modern ship design concept of modular vessels configured for tasks. Just as roll-on, roll-off container ships created a revolution in today's shipping, this design does the same for sci-fi settings.

The Shadow Project
Publisher: Cutter's Guild Games
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/24/2008 21:09:39

This is a decent work. The setting is a man-made island, which is very nicely mapped, something you don't always see. Myself, I would have placed it in a RL city because maps are easy to come by, but no problem.

The product's art is second-rate, but not enough to detract.

It begins with a very good piece of intro fiction.

The blurbs selling the game do a good job of presenting the concept-a mutated virus creates supernatural-like beings which the PCs battle. Its an innovative concept in its presentation.

The downside is that nearly every great idea is countered by a less-than-great counterpart. The setting of a man-made island-city is offset by the idea that the US military would build a biowar facility under this dense urban population, where security was easily compromised, and where a perimeter failure would infect millions. Since the PCs are gov't agents, this means they are employed by, and rely on, idiots.

The game has an extensive weapons list and provides pages of illiustrations of the weapons, a very good idea. However, instead of using clipart or the professional line drawings avalible everywhere (the weapons are modern day) they use freehand drawings done by someone who does not own a ruler.

A terrible idea was the linkage of in-game terminology to religious concepts (DEVIL virus, archangel counter-chips), which is offensive to some religions and comes across as very juvenile. It badly damages the overall tone of what strives to be a grim, dark setting.

In all, not a bad game; the designers break some new ground and present some things in a new light. A fair buy at $10, but its no AFMBE.

Zombie Horror
Publisher: Ranger Games
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/24/2008 20:50:43

I had mixed feelings about this product. Its a good value-100 pages for two bucks. The writing is clear and well-done, but frankly, its rather basic.

This would be a good product for a new GM or a GM who has never run a horror game.

Experienced GMs won't find much to help them.

Fading Suns: Arcane Tech

FS is one of the best systems around, and this material only expands upon it. Its interesting to show how the Church thinks of technology.

Master Tiles No.0 - Infinite Chamber
Publisher: SkeletonKey Games
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/22/2008 12:16:04

Always great quality & stunning visuals from SK, and this product is free!

While it isn't 'infinite', this new system certainly would make an interesting feature; its much like Oones' Rule the Dungeon feature, where you can activate or deactivate certain details.

Hunter: The Walking Dead

Why are you reading reviews of a free product?

Its good source material, although a bit less black on the pages would make it more printer-friendly.

0one's Blueprints: Pirate Ship
Publisher: 0one Games
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/16/2008 01:55:48

I don't normally give Oones products less than 5 stars, but this map had three faults I feel drew from the otherwise high quality of the product. LKisted in order of importance to me:

1) No depiction of rigging-a sailing ship had a lot of 'room' up there.

2) no cannon. This is supposed to be a pirate vessel, and cannons are bulky-using them as 'furniture' would have let this map depict warships & merchants alike.

3) what ship type is this? A general class would have helped.

Still, a worth-while buy.

Modern Floorplans: Apartment Complex
Publisher: Fabled Environments
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/16/2008 01:48:33

Not bad-not as visually stunning as Skeleton Key (nor as expensive), and a bit less well-developed as a whole than Oones. However, its definately to top of the B&W floorplan food chain.

Much the same set-up as the spaceship plans of Future Armada. High-quality work and plentiful detail. Well-worth the price.

Another great product-you simply cannot go wrong with Oones. This particular product details a area of about a city block (roughly), from the sewers to the cellars to the rooftops.

For two bucks.
