The Game Master's Book of Non-Player Characters
Publisher: Topix Media Lab
by Cannibal H. G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/08/2021 22:18:34

"This is one of those books that is exactly what it says on the tin, but it could have been a dud if the NPCs within its pages weren’t interesting. Thankfully, that’s not the case. Writer Jeff Ashworth has crafted a veritable horde of characters, and while some may be more detailed than others, none of them are boring. My only problem is how long it would take to get all of them into play." - Seamus Conneely

Thirsty Sword Lesbians
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
by Cannibal H. G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/14/2021 11:29:14

"Thirsty Sword Lesbians is far from just a name. It’s a game that explores queer feelings and identity extensively, in all their beauty. Even when that exploration may get rough, the game has done all it can to ensure that you are safe in this journey. It may take inspiration from other systems, but what it does with that inspiration is completely original." - Maria Fanning

Hard Wired Island
Publisher: Weird Age Games
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/07/2021 19:40:54

"With firm pillars grounding it in the genre it wants to embody, easy to understand rules, and a vibrant setting, Hard Wired Island is worth any cyberpunk’s time to check out." - Seamus Conneely

Wanderhome
Publisher: Possum Creek Games
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/21/2021 08:14:10

"If you’ve ever claimed ‘character development’ is something you like about RPGs, then you should probably try Wanderhome. It is, arguably, distilled character development." - Aaron Marks

Mechasys
Publisher: EDGE Studio
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/16/2021 08:36:43

"Offering a ton of options along with additional rules from mecha minions to new pilot and crew incidentals/maneuvers/actions to a mecha critical hit table, all of which nevertheless plug easily into the existing structure of Genesys, Mechasys offers not just a detailed effort to bring mecha adventures to the table, but an accessible one." - Seamus Conneely

Band of Blades
Publisher: Off Guard Games
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/06/2021 12:15:57

"Band of Blades is a book that will offer a unique campaign experience where no character is safe, where both the losses and the risks matter. The players have a larger degree of control over the story by playing the leaders of the Legion, while also getting to potentially explore many different characters, playstyles, and relationships via the troupe play with the rank-and-file legionnaires. And whether the Legion dies on the roads of Aldermark or stands victorious on the walls of Skydagger Keep, you’re going to know you took on a challenge worth facing." - Seamus Conneely

Star Trek Adventures: Core Rulebook
Publisher: Modiphius
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/02/2021 12:34:12

"Star Trek Adventures, like Star Trek at large, certainly could manage a blockbuster event, or a Dominion or Burn-style long arc, but it sings as an episodic game, and I think that’s because the game trusts its players to bring what they know and love of Trek to the table and fly “second star to the right — and straight on ’til morning.”" - Seamus Conneely

Facing the Titan - The RPG
Publisher: Gulix
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/17/2021 09:40:18

"Facing the Titan has learned a lot of lessons from the GM-less narrative games like Fiasco, but still goes more for the empty canvas that makes a lot of narrative games so intimidating. With the solidity of the procedures in the game, though, you have something you can hang a story off of." - Aaron Marks

Space Knights
Publisher: Gabriel Ciprés
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 02/11/2021 13:14:37

"Space Knights packs a lot into its ten pages, from interesting mechanics to idea fodder, covering everything you'll need to play a one-shot or campaign from the set-up all the way to the epilogue. With interesting tweaks to the mechanics and a low bar for entry (there are even three example Orders and a quartet of missions if you want to jump right into things), even if you're not a 40k fan there's a lot of fun to be had here." - Seamus Conneely

Skycrawl
Publisher: Aaron A. Reed
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/15/2021 08:35:30

"The mechanics are simple and straightforward, and really do link up very well with different dice systems. Orcery is fantastically creative and a really cool new thing for players to fiddle around with. The various tables, from Atmospheres to Situations to Lands to Folk, provide a ton of variety that you're going to have to work pretty hard to exhaust. The overview at the start of the book says that the Azure Etern should be vast, wild, whimsical, and fun, and if you think of them as goals I absolutely think Skycrawl has managed to attain them." - Seamus Conneely

Vaesen - Nordic Horror Roleplaying
Publisher: Free League Publishing
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/23/2020 13:33:03

"Vaesen’s got heft where it counts, and after reading I fully understand why I was seeing the game on so many superlative year-end lists. Just enough mechanics combined with solid writing and solid genre awareness may just make Vaesen my go-to for playing neo-Victorian monster hunters who work out of a gloomy castle. That might sound very specific, but if Vaesen learned one thing from D&D, it’s that a narrow concept works. I highly recommend giving this narrow concept a chance; your inner monster hunter and inner Scandinavian will thank you." - Aaron Marks

Factions 1: A Faction Talent Supplement
Publisher: EDGE Studio
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/18/2020 13:27:00

"Factions 1 lets players climb the ranks of the organizations that matter to their characters while rewarding them in a new way, tying them further into the narrative of the world they exist in, and granting them further abilities to make them more capable and (ideally) unique within their party. On the GM's side of things, there's a whole set of new hooks for the old tacklebox, and a good amount of flexibility within the mechanic to deliver the desired experience to the players." - Seamus Conneely

Electric Bastionland
Publisher: Bastionland Press
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/14/2020 10:55:54

"Electric Bastionland makes me want to play it, but that’s not all. Electric Bastionland also shows me how it should be run, providing more guidance and direction in its Conductor Resources than pretty much any other game I’ve read this year ... Electric Bastionland lavishes the bulk of its mechanical effort on the person running the game, and the result is that it’s just more accessible than the other games it gets compared to. Combine that with the meaty and evocative Failed Careers that players will readily be inspired by, and you have a winner. The setting is weird, the mechanics are light, and the Conductor is well-prepared. Come get lost in Bastion...you won’t leave the same." - Aaron Marks

Cyberpunk RED
Publisher: R. Talsorian Games Inc.
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/14/2020 15:06:26

"Cyberpunk Red is not a tie-in game, it’s the next edition of Cyberpunk 2020. This means mixing new layout with old rules, and 2020s social awareness with 1980s cheese. I’m not going to say it’s the next big thing in tabletop. I am, however, going to play the hell out of it." - Aaron Marks

Bluebeard's Bride
Publisher: Magpie Games
by Seamus C. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/09/2020 23:07:52

"Bluebeard’s Bride is not for the faint of heart, but for horror fans or people at least interested in exploring it I haven’t come across another game that works as well within that genre. The content is genuinely scary, the rules all work towards maintaining the right vibe, there is a surprising amount of room for creativity (even for a PbtA game) on both the side of the Groundskeeper and the Sisters, and even the basic ‘How to Play’ text is written to start making the shadows seem deeper. Even the look of the book (which is very nice even in PDF form) helps with this: there’s weird, echoey-looking text all over the place, blood drips from section dividers, the art is extremely well done, and important text is often an eerie blue."
