Campfire Story

Campfire Story Complex but comprehensible systems, refreshing approach to RPG and for me the most important thing replayable without the game feeling repetetive. Overall great experience!

Camp Whirlybird!
by Anthony P.
Publisher: PTA
Date Added: 08/09/2022 05:21:40
Camp Whirlybird! A really cute RPG - the use of fortune tellers is a great idea - nostalgic and silly. Esactly what I wanted from this sort of rules-lite RPG. I ran a game for three players and it worked beautifully. I'd put this alongside the Grant Howitt one shot RPGs for fun two hour experiences

The Black Hack Second Edition
by E. S.
Publisher: Gold Piece Publications
Date Added: 08/09/2022 03:30:13
The Black Hack Second Edition Backed on KS for a PDF copy, THEN bought the dead tree version: this is how much I love this game. I like to think of it as “my” Fifth Edition, because it keeps everything I liked about BECMI (my first iteration of D&D) and imports just enough of the streamlined mechanics cool kids love so much these days. Seriously, Advantage/Disadvantage is convenient, the Encumbrance rules are simplified but still matter, and yet you also have those beautiful random generators for dungeons, wilderness, encounters that I had in my old booklets. I think some people who criticize TBH2e here slightly mischaracterize it: it is not a retroclone of anything, and it is debatable if it is even strictly speaking OSR. Yes, it is more survivable. Yes, it has playbooks for chargen like a PbtA game. But still gives you the old D&D gonzo, random, resource scarcity experience. Bravo....

Fortress Oblivion This is a fun encounter/adventure with plenty of room for more development. I love the vibe of the ruined fortress.

The Crypt

Publisher: Le Paysagiste de l'Imaginaire
Date Added: 08/08/2022 19:59:42
The Crypt A nice little scenario to fill an evening of gaming. Details are left open enough that a DM can easily fit it into any setting they like. The villain's motivations could be clearer -though I think from context clues a DM can spin their own tale. THe monsters are appropriate for a 1st level adventure, but some variety would be appreciated. I would move some of them into the room with the villain otherwise the confrontation with them is likely to be anti-climatic as the 5e action economy kicks in and wrecks them in a round or two...

Legends of Avallen - Quickstart Guide (FREE PDF)
by Bob V. G.
Publisher: Modiphius

Legends of Avallen - Quickstart Guide (FREE PDF) Recently, I soloed my way through Legends of Avallen – Quickstart Guide (43 pages, free at DriveThruRPG). This 52 card RPG system is described as a world Inspired by Celtic mythology in Roman Britain, Legends of Avallen is a roleplaying game that takes you to a mystical island occupied by faithless invaders. I used Paul Bimler’s Solo Adventure the Dungeon Oracle as the solo engine. Here are the highlights of the adventure which are included in the quickstart. So, I started with the five characters that are included in the module. They picked up the quest from Branwen the village leader. She decided to travel with them (and this was a huge mistake). They travel with a cart and horse along with some supplies. Things start out quiet, but soon they deal with an obstacle, and a bit later, the horse suddenly freaks out. A ten meter tall giant appears and the PCs make a run for it. When it gets quiet, they slowly creep back and discover that there are no tracks or evidence of its presence. ...

EZD6 Core Rulebook
by Joe P.
Publisher: RUNEHAMMER GAMES
Date Added: 08/08/2022 17:06:43
EZD6 Core Rulebook After giving myself time to really absorb things and run a few one shots, I have to say this really is an amazing rules lite game, however I feel like in order to properly review it, you almost need two separate reviews. As this is Drive-Thru RPG, its a given that the vast majority of those looking to purchase this game here are pretty advanced or at the very least competant when it comes to RPGs in general, and for that audience, this book is a solid 5 stars and will give you tons of tools to make your game sessions fast, chaotic and exciting with out getting bogged down in too much crunch. On the other hand, some would expect a game called "EZ D6" to be beginner friendly and a great game for new people to jump into the hobby, however it is not. While the rules of this book are incredibly easy to understand, it still assumes you are familiar with a lot of core concepts in tabletop gaming in general. Thats definitely not to say its necessarily a bad thing as many advance...

Shadowrun: Renraku Arcology: Shutdown This review is for the physical version. Save yourself the money. The printing is poor quality. Any section with text against a dark background is completely unreadable.

l) **Into The Breach: The Witch** PDF. 32 pages. 1 cover, 1 title, 1 credits page, 1 table of contents, 1 OGL, for 27 pages of content. $5.99. This book has quite a bit of good content. There are new archetypes: Bailiwick Hermit, Bog Builder, Bulwark Theurgist, Dweomer Weaver, Foul Temptress, Gluttonous Crone, Marjara Bound, the Scorned Heart, and Voodoo Crafter. Each archetype has a number of new associated powers. There is a new Base Class related to the witch, the Sèvitè which is the worshiper of a lost creator god. Essentially this is a Voodoo practitioner in Pathfinder terms. The interesting thing for me is their ability to Syncretize various gods. Very interesting to be sure. There are a couple of very interesting Prestige Classes presented as well. The Heathen and T...

tch Options (PFRPG)** PDF. 10 pages, 1 cover, 2.4 pages for OGL. 6.6 pages of content. $2.00 I like Purple Duck Games. They produce a lot of material so it is a good chance there is something out there that you will enjoy. This book has a lot of different options for the witch class as the title says. There is a little bit of everything in this book too. There are five new hexes. Five new Major hexes and four Grand hexes. Six New Patron Themes. Ten new feats. I am rather fond of the Triple Moon Tattoo feat to be honest. Ten new spells, including "Summon Hag." Four new pieces of equipment. There is the hagborn template to add to any monster for creatures born to hags. There is not a lot of any one thing here, but a lot of different things. For $2.00 how could I say ...

F. 60 pages, $2.99. 1 page cover, 1 title page, 1 page introduction, 3 pages table of contents. 3 pages Creative Common license, 1 page OGL. Rest content. This book is punching way above its weight class, to be honest. The organization is a bit odd, but nothing I can't navigate. We get a Glossary at the start, which I guess works to help people unfamiliar with some of these terms. An introduction to a Who's Who of magical people and places. This includes the various school of magic as if they were actual schools. Each school gets its Latin motto, its center of studies, and titles. It is a pretty cool idea really. Spells by school are listed with their appropriate colleges. There is a whole implicit setting here that can be used in conjunction with any Modern d20 gam...
