The Nomad Khanates: An Unofficial Supplement for the Dragon Warriors Game
Publisher: Ambula In Fabulam
by David G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/01/2020 17:04:04

A nice fan supplement, good to see Dragon Warriors still getting SOME support even as a non-commercial concern. This material fills out a lesser-known part of the Lands of Legend and includes adventures as well as background material all very much in the spirit of the original (official) game. The art is serviceable but the layout is the only aspect that could have used some more work - with a bit of attention to fonts and columns it would have looked better. Hope to see more work like this put out by the small but dedicated cadre of DW fans out there.

Nice product, worth it for the Danforth art alone. Has some excellent Dwarven city maps which can easily be used in other games.

Definitely rules-light, looks like it's quite capable of supporting a fun evening's play. Nicely presented PDF.

Simple double-sided sheet showing Hero System combat actions and suggested tactics for different situations. Useful and well laid out.

Bizantium and the Northern Islands Sneak Preview
Publisher: Palladium Books
by David G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/08/2015 00:35:30

The first substantial book for Palladium Fantasy for more than a decade! About time...

The sneak preview looks excellent, plenty of interesting locations, NPCs, plot hooks as well as new magic and O.C.C.s.

Fantasy Hero Complete
Publisher: Hero Games
by David G. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/07/2015 22:59:33

This book was hamstrung in two ways:

a) the design brief was to present ALL OF THE HERO 6E rules in one volume, customised for fantasy. That means that every single rule (well, 99%) of the 800 page two-volume core set had to be included (why exactly???), regardless of how relevant they are for fantasy. In a 260 page book, that means that rules are squeezed in with poor explanations and no examples. It's OK as a reference if you know the system, but terrible for newcomers to pick up.

Even worse, fitting in that mass of rules meant that the fantasy element shoehorned in was minimal. 70% of the book is a restatement of the Hero rules, 30% is a hurried and weak attempt to show how to use them for fantasy. This part of the book fails, as it is neither a selection of drag-and-drop elements (pre-made spells, weapons and armor etc, of which there are few to none) nor a comprehensive guide to building a fantasy campaign with the Hero System (like the far superior Fantasy Hero Sixth Edition)

b) The graphic design and layout is terrible. This is 2015, and it looks like a weak effort from the 1980s. It makes Palladium books layout look pleasantly nostalgic, whereas this has a poor header hierarchy and font choices, cheesy art etc.

The Hero System is still a great one.

My recommendation is to pick up the two volume core set, now available in pdf only, or the Basic Rules, and add the earlier Fantasy Hero 6e by Steve Long, which is one of my favorite RPG books. If you are willing to tackle what is admittedly a complex system, you will be rewarded, and those books are well-written and laid out, unlike this one.
