WSS002: Gray Nebula: Crewmen, Con-Men, and Lawmen
Publisher: Small Niche Games
by Jeff R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/28/2015 15:27:32

REVIEW At 21 pages and a price $1.99 it is a good deal for three new classes. It is a must buy for the GM who the problem of Real Life getting in the way of gaming, which is most of us. To have classes that can be used for the campaign and fully statted NPCs with adventure hooks not only for the GM on a time budget but a good buy for the last minute game session ideas.

5/5 for saving the busy gamer some time and for helping out the GM fleshing out his or her game.

WSS001: Star Gods Help Us
Publisher: Small Niche Games

Every gaming group has the player who's never satisfied with the core classes. You know the player that has to be different. This book is for them, and to save the GM from trying to shoehorn that player into playing something that they don’t want to play. Star Gods Help Us is a POP cultured filled collection of new classes for that one player who just has to be different. It contains twelve (12) quirky race/class combinations including giant cockroach junkers, spiritual mammoths, living oozes, malfunctioning lawbots, zombie crewmen, and other bizarre creatures that will leave you shaking your head. Here is a list of what mattered to me as a player and a GM, especially if you are new to White Star. • Clocking in at $2.99 it’s a steal. Price 5/5 • Each of the 12 race/classes has art work that gives you an idea of the race’s looks 5/5 • Format for the class entries includes roleplaying tips and a typical Quote of the race. 5/5 • No Glaring typos or format errors 5/5 (please note I’m not a grammar specialist). • Reference to pop culture that will make you laugh 5/5

This is a good humorous add on for your White Star rpg. The only thing that I thought was missing was the race/class combos for Dogs, Cats, Monkeys and Toads. I did get a free copy for review, however it was on my buy list anyways because I am one of those players and GMs that like the chance to be silly and goofy.

At a 5/5 and $2.99 price go buy it.

Necropunk Campaign Setting
Publisher: Little Red Goblin Games
by Jeff R. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/06/2013 20:48:28

Necropunk by Little Red Goblin Games is not the game I expected or at the time even wanted. Now let me explain why I think it’s a game that you should buy. I have chosen review Necropunk as a setting instead of a chapter by chapter break down. If you prefer that type of review please see the great review by Endzeitgeist either on RPGNOW.com or at Endzeitgeist.com.

This is my first review and I hope that I give you an idea from my point of view why I like and hope that Necropunk is here to stay, I followed the Kickstarter for the fan support of the game but did not back it because to be honest Little Red Goblin Games was and is a small publisher that did not have the track record to convince me to support them. I was, in hindsight very wrong. I looked at the teasers and adverts and saw two words “Necro” and “Punk”. To me I thought a “Punk” setting that focused and centered on Necromancy. I’ve played and enjoyed both themes in various games from Cyberpunk to Pathfinder but never played both or even thought of both together. In my mind I felt that the campaign setting had some merit, as I was looking for a new direction to take my Pathfinder game with my friends. What I got in a PDF was something altogether different and so much better. I got a new direction to take “ROLE” playing and being able to use Pathfinder as a core mechanic. For my gaming group that suffers gross interference from the real world that gets in the way of our gaming days Pathfinder provides an engine that is easy for everyone to use as a player and a Game Master. The goals and overall themes of the Necropunk setting are to examine what is means to be human. Hence there is only one race, humans. In the far future humans have changed slightly but what has made these variances in the Necropunk setting are based in social, political and even religious ideology. Little Red Goblin Games has taken great care to present the different ideologies without preferential treatment of one over the other. Therefore the only race is human but the social, political and religious divergent are variant enough to give players plenty to work with even if they normally only play dwarves, elves or gnomes. The part that got me “hooked” was taken from the introduction. “Necropunk is so much more than a campaign setting. It is our intent to build a community around Necropunk by exploring new ground and engaging players in a way that they haven’t been engaged before.” In plain English this means that Necropunk is going to be developed as a sort of living campaign. From fiction lines that support the future books to how they present the products from language font and formatting. What LRGG has gotten right and hope to see more of in the future products Necropunk has been revised a total of six times as of this review. Various layout and sections have been moved around to help the book flow better for both the player and the game master. There have been new art worked added to the product. Some of the art work has been put into color as well; this is a nice touch considering the KS funding goal. A bonus point for me was that they have been looking at the product and reworking it to better suit both players and game masters alike. What LRGG is working on currently The continue need for formatting and editing changes but these are minor from what you would see in most small third party products. Personally I see this as an ongoing event but they have worked very hard to improve the product that you should spend your hard earned buck. The need for more examples and a starter adventure to help show off the campaign setting for a larger audience. A minor need is a PoD version.

Its a 5 out of 5 for me.

In conclusion GO BUY this setting you wont be wasting your money.

This is not a review but a comment this game is about as old as me and the scan coversion to PDF looks as old as me (40). I realize some one was kind enough to scan it to PDF but I was hoping that it would be a quailty job too. However if your like me and remember either playing the game or seeing it in the Dragon magazine as I did your going to want to buy it anyways. Oh yes Im looking foward to playing this classic. If FGU would have cleaned up the text and modernized it I would have given it a 5/5.
