The Short Games Digest: Volume 2
Publisher: Far Horizons Co-op
by A. S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/10/2019 10:55:09

I haven't played most of the games here - it's been out for one day and there's 21 of them, even if some are micro-games and most of them are designed to just be picked up and played right quick. But I have had the honour and pleasure of playtesting Doogans and Dogans with the author, and I have to say it's a blast. By the name you may infer that it is a parody of a more famous rpg made by certain magic users preferring semi-nautical habitats, and you'd be right - and wrong.

Doogans and Dogans leans on a lot of the tropes of the western fantasy RPG that has cropped up over the last forty-odd years, but as befitting a game published by a profit-sharing co-op, it veers sharply left almost immediately. The character creation system is simple and intuitive and encourages customization and internal jokes for your table. The mechanics are exceedingly simple, and yet, with the right gm, blossoms into rich and rewarding game-play. The titular dogans - dragon-sized dogs that nest in hoards and must be played with to exhaustion - are a nemesis fitting of a game that never once comes close to taking itself seriously, but dedicates itself to its premise with utter sincerity.

Doogans and Dogans is, in my opinion, worth the price of admission in and of itself, but San Jenaro Coop is offering an embarrassment of riches, and I for one, can't wait to share the goodies with my friends.

Riot of the Flesh
Publisher: White Wolf
by A. S. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/09/2019 21:00:44

Holden Shearer always ensures a mark of quality to the proceedings, and it's a delight to see his work in the Vault. Fomori was always one of the more intriguing parts of the Werewolf universe to me, and Riot of the Flesh offers what's on the tin - alongside ambient creepiness in and fridge horror as one considers just what goes into, say, the cambion life-cycle. Holden Shearer provides an excellent view into the lifestyles of the damned and mutated, and the expanded rules for fomori creation are hugely welcome.

Americana - Preview Quickplay Pack
Publisher: Sandy Pug Games

I'm super-stoked for Americana! The setting has so much magic to it, the deliberate choices to make it more inclusive makes me happy, and the system seems intriguing in how it's so based on collaborative and cooperative rolls.
