5e: HARDCORE MODE
by Kevin S.
Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 07/15/2020 11:54:48
5e: HARDCORE MODE The lack of consistency througout this document and the fact that most of the concepts are either rehashes (of older edition ideas) or poorly thought out additions makes me regret this purchase. Starting with the fact that not every class is mentioned in the "Classic XP" table. Sorcerers are missing, assuming that wizards are the equivelant for this table is fine. But that would mean that they are equal in power in this system (which they are not). This problem is amplified if we include the fact that bards, who are considered by most a top tier class in DnD 5e, are the fastest to reach level 10. Now what you should have gained from this fact is that the game stops at level 10, which is fine, actually I like the concept of doing that. However, it is ridiculously unbalanced if you do not restructure classes or at least pose the idea of doing so to upcoming players and gm's. A bard for example gets the following at level 10: Bardic Inspiration (d10), Expertise, Magical...

Lil6

Publisher: Chibi

Lil6 John has written an compelling take on the OpenD6 system that is compact but flavorful. It is a worthy competiting option to similar efforts such as Mini Six or MicropenD6. While Mini Six has a similar depth of setting materail, I find this book does a better job of presenting the material as a suite of tools to be leveraged. There are a lot of tables and tools in here than are written with the GM in mind: cleanly written and modular rules for different genres that can be mashed together to create your own tweaks. Building things like monsters, weapons, or vehicles is very straightforward with the examples given. The attribute+skills list is very evocative of "how" a charcater might do something rather than "what" a charcater might do. I like it - it is easily swapped out with some more traditional if you like but it was nice to see a different take. The Qualities system allows you to get more "data" from a single roll which can speed up play and give the...

Shadowcraft

Shadowcraft For a fantasy campaign, more ABs more better in my opinion. The additional powers and shadow creatures are creative and fun, and the new Edges should make any player who likes being the sneaky-stabby of the group absolutely giddy with possibilities. (Take THAT with my Improved Shadow Blade!)

Tomes & Prayers (Fantasy Add-On)
by David A.
Publisher: Pinnacle Entertainment
Date Added: 07/15/2020 11:08:20
Tomes & Prayers (Fantasy Add-On) A perfect addition to any GM's Toolbox, and an enrichment to any fantasy campaign. There's room for this kind of material in more than just a fantasy based campaign, though. Modern Horror could also use much of the material in this book. It's well written, beautifully laid out and, like all great SWAG products, can be used effortlessly with any SWADE game.

Into the Bronze
by Jasper G.
Publisher: Lantern's Faun
Date Added: 07/15/2020 10:48:09
Into the Bronze I love Sumeria, I love the Bronze Age. This game is in my ballpark. It has beautiful graphic design and a nicely streamlined system. I will assuredly run it, even use it for a campaign! Only quibble is the pro/con that that due to its extreme minimalism, it leaves a lot for the person running it to interpret or create. That being said it has a *strong* aesthetic. If you like the Bronze Age, Sumer, gorgeous graphic design, simple mechanics and terse, to the point writing, you will love this game.

Fallen Stars (Core Rulebook)
by PB N.
Publisher: Leith Brownlee
Date Added: 07/15/2020 09:22:25
Fallen Stars (Core Rulebook) This book is **beautiful.** Its 68 pages are adorned with art and well balanced between lore flavor and mechanics. It's simple to play, but in a way that allows the GM and party the flexibility to make it complex with planning for the horde and on the fly absurd party decision making, rather than looking up the mechanics every five minutes. I love percentile mechanics and sanity mechanics for horror games, and this ruleset has both, so bonuses there! It has a great structure that lends freedom to GMs so they can build onto the system with their own enemies or homebrew what they need to suit their table, which is always something I look for in every game I pick up. You *could* even take these mechanics and change the setting; suddenly you're playing the Walking Dead! However, that brings me to the next major plus of this game, and *that is the lore*. "In the beginning, there were trees..." may seem like such a simple opening line to the book, but by the time yo...

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft This is a fantastic deep dive into how a specific character's paradigm fits into the Mage 20th Edition rules. If, like me, you are new to Mage and wondering how the heck one starts from a character's belief/view-of-the-universe and eventually ends at the nuts and bolts how to create Effects you will find this very helpful. I particularly enjoy the Rotes section which details how a character creates an Effect by laying out the combined Spheres and justifying with their Paradigm, Practice, and Instrument. I look forward to more of there paradigm deep dives....

DUST Adventures Corebook

DUST Adventures Corebook This is a brilliant system with TONS of flexibility and scope to create immersive adventures in the DUST universe. Everything from the combat to the character creation to the progression system is just so smooth. I played this with a group of primary school aged pupils, (with characters that I pre-generated) and it was much easier to access than D&D.

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition: Vehicle Guide

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition: Vehicle Guide Edit: I received the refund offer from Pinnacle, and I thank them for that. I have decide to not ask for a refund in hopes that Pinnacle decides to update this guide at a later date. I like your other SWADE books quite a bit, and have confidence you will recognize the value in enhancing the Vehicle Guide. If not, well I've spent $7 on worse things. Not many, but it has happened. It has SOME of what I was looking for, which is stats for different kinds of sailing ships. As another reviewer pointed out, there's nothing else present besides stat blocks. So if you are looking for any advanced vehicle options, it's not in here. They don't even give you the prices of the vehicles! I would think knowing the prices of the vehicles would be essential in a guide like this! Lazy!! One other major complaint is that there aren't even images of the vehicles. This would have been useful A) So people could visualize the vehicle, and B) So people could use the imag...

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition
by William B.

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) was exactly what I was looking for. I'm just getting back into the hobby, and I wanted to try something more flexible that would allow me to quickly add whatever elements I want, and less simulationist. Staring back in the mid-80's I have played and ran AD&D, 2e, 3.5e, and Pathfinder 1e, and I didn't want to get on the 5e train. I, personally, consider the SWADE rules a masterpiece. If you read through them, and soak in all the subsystems, it allows you to add so many fun elements to your games like dramatic tasks, chases, social conflict, fear & insanity, and others. It also amazingly does it without turing the system into a simulation math fest. I have seen people write "SWADE is NOT rules light!" when critisizing Savage Worlds in forums, and I agree with that. This is a beefy PDF, and there is a lot to soak in, especially if you are new to Savage Worlds like I was. However I don't think "r...

Capital by Night Gente, esse é um dos melhores materiais que eu já vi em toda a minha vida como narradora e jogadora de Vampiro: A Máscara. Queria muito ter tido esse tipo de conteúdo quando comecei a me aventurar em mesas de Mundo das Trevas, porque muita coisa tive que aprender na marra e metendo a cara numa infinidade de livros e sites. E esse livro tem tudo e muito mais do que qualquer narrador, seja iniciante ou experiente, precisa. Os meninos que fizeram estão de parabéns, tudo aqui é de tirar o fôlego. <3...

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition: Combat & Chase Quick Reference Chart

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition: Combat & Chase Quick Reference Chart These are very handy. I run a lot of chases and it's nice to have these in one place. I deleted the unnecessary cover out of the PDF and ran it through an optimizer though, the result being a 377kb file that loads quickly on my older tablet. Not sure why Pinnacle PDF's all need to be so poorly optimized.

4AD Game Board: a one-page play sheet for Four Against Darkness
by William B.

4AD Game Board: a one-page play sheet for Four Against Darkness Not a bad character sheet. I didn't really care for 4AD itself, and ultimately I wound up just making an excel spreadsheet for characters that was far easier to use since I could do everything on my computer. If you are one of those people who considers writing stuff on paper a part of gaming nostalgia, and that is a thing, this is a decent character sheet.

Humanoids Set I used these for a pathfinder campaign years ago before switching over to gaming online. For bases, I superglued a paperclip to a penny, then simply slid the cardboard figure into the paper clip. Worked great.
