Clanbook - Lhiannan
by Al F.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 05/19/2022 20:31:22
Clanbook - Lhiannan Nine pages? And 5 of those are the cover art!!! Plus the size of the illustrations are another page and a half by themselves....So basically 2-3 pages of content (that really don't say anything, that cannot be found in the other books.) Utter waste of money.. Five bucks for three paragraphs of a "story hooks" and a copy of a description to the clan... THATS IT....... This is UTTERLY NOT WORTH IT, for what it is. It needs filled out way before it's worth it. (notice I said nothing about the spelling errors OR typos in the limited amount of content)...

Kineticist: Lessons of the Elements
by Brian B.
Publisher: Paizo
Date Added: 05/19/2022 17:00:35
Kineticist: Lessons of the Elements I see Kineticist and I have to buy it, then I read it and see how good it really is. This book is great, seriously, it does the 1e Kineticist justice, and makes it even better, IMO. If both of the Kineticist books get a Foundry download, it's bought by me, the moment I see it.

Shadowrun: 30 Nights (Campaign Book)
by Jean-Michel O.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 05/19/2022 15:18:27
Shadowrun: 30 Nights (Campaign Book) It could have been an extremely interesting single adventure or mini campaign, but it was badly thought out, lacks critical detail and is full of missed opportunities. Straight up you need to understand that the whole blackout concept potentially cripples any existing character with cyberware, which immediately makes it unsuitable for most preexisting groups to be present at ground zero. As for the 30 nights worth of adventures following the grand event.... I'm sorry but nothing stands out here, it feels like 30 random adventure seeds presented with the barest of detail while only surface level thought has been given to the social, political, or even logistical effects of a protracted blackout as described. You could do this yourself with a handful of d6 and some rolls on a 'random shadowrun generator' table. Where are the refugee columns and the stories about guiding or protecting them? where is the UCAS equivalent of FEMA? where are the aid camps? You've chosen...

PseudoTech: Arcade Operations
by Edward K.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 05/19/2022 14:44:31
PseudoTech: Arcade Operations All in all, a fun little toy to add to your BattleTech games, and not bad for the price, but the book does have some issues. First and foremost, it is *heavily* skewed towards 'Mech-only play, which admittedly isn't really a big problem for most players. However, the author seems to have a limited knowledge of aerospace rules in particular, and it definitely shows in the few instances where it comes up; infantry and combat vehicles are better accomodated, but still find themselves dealing with edge cases or highly exploitable setups. Truthfully, if you're just in it for the powerups, you're better off downloading the old April Fools powerup rules for free. That being said, the achievements and scenarios do provide some entertainment. The achievements seem like a fun, relatively standardized format to award outstanding, creative, or frankly hilariously improbable play. A few of the pre-made achievements have somewhat ambiguous unlock conditions (most are fairly obvi...

Kitsune of Golarion
by Paul B.
Publisher: Paizo
Date Added: 05/19/2022 13:42:15
Kitsune of Golarion I will say up front that I did not read the fluff content. I bought it entirely for the mechanical options. Feats, items, archetypes, etc. The biggest downside of this content is that it make so much of the core rules ancestry content feel half baked. A lot of the ancestries in the core rules feel like they were written by someone who was told to design rules for the ancestry and did an hour of google for some basic inspiration for the theme. This supplement feels like it was written by someone who personally loves the idea of the kitsune and wants to see it pop when someone plays it. I think it might actually manage to cause some complaints at the table, not because it's overpowered, but because the player will actually be drawing attention to their ancestry more than everyone else does. Because their ancestry will actually be relevant and interesting and not just some faint background scent like a can of La Croix. Ancestry Guide Kitsune: "I'm a furry." Ki...

Ewen's Tables Collection Seriously the best group of random tables I've ever come across. I've spent hours on several occasions just randomly rolling and coming up with some great names, titles, etc. So good in fact, I ordered the print version. Desperately awaiting the second volume to come out.

Ranks Game System: Complete Collection
by Grant L.
Publisher: Ranks Game System
Date Added: 05/19/2022 13:26:52
Ranks Game System: Complete Collection You never quite know what to expect with indie titles but WOW there is a lot packed into this little system. I can see why the developer broke the game system into parts, but I am glad I picked up the full collection. It really depends what type of game you are running. Ranks Game System gives me real Dungeon World vibes but with a faster character creation and more descriptive freedom when it comes to your actions. I finally get to use my D12 for something! This is a very easy to learn system for a GM and players, especially for my friends that don't play these types of games much. I'm happy this game has a structure that opens the doors for GMs who like to add a bit of homebrew too. I also love the goofy 80s-90s style art and wish there was more of it. For an indie title, two thumbs up!...

Dungeon Full of Monsters
by Robert G.
Publisher: Chthonstone Games
Date Added: 05/19/2022 11:11:50
Dungeon Full of Monsters I like Dungeon Full of Monsters. I like megadungeons. The gist of it is, you have a mountain full of megadungeon goodness, and depending on where the characters enter, you end up in various levels composed of a group of maps which are random in their placement. This is handy as the sections are each their own mini-dungeon with their own theme and such, and are very easy to prepare in a few minutes as the dungeons are often about 2-3 pages. My players and I are enjoying it. I currently run this online and have one constant irritant with it though. The maps are stretched or otherwise not a regular grid. When you set the grid, the area you set will be fine...then you will notice how as the map progresses from that spot, your grid stops overlapping and you have map lines everywhere. On some maps, you will have multiple scaled grids on the same map portion ie regular squares then a secion of about 70% scale for one area of the map. For theater of the mind style play, this is f...

T4 Marc Miller's Traveller

T4  Marc Miller's Traveller Originally posted here (with images): [https://theotherside.timsbrannan.com/2022/05/review-t4-marc-

We are now up to 1996. Games Designer's Workshop, unfortunately, had folded at the end of February 1996. At this time the rights to Traveller reverted back to Mark Miller. So Mark started Imperium Games to produce a new game called "Marc Miller's Traveller" but most called T4 online. It has, as far as I can tell, the least amount of supplements for its game line but that is not a huge surprise. **T4 Marc Miller's Traveller (1996)** *PDF. 194 pages, color covers and color inserts, black & white art.* For the purposes of this review I am only considering the PDF from DriveThruRPR. There is a softcover POD that includes the color plates, but I do not have that. There are a lot of familiar names here including Larry Elmore doing some of th...

Shadowrun: Sixth World Companion (Core Character Rulebook)
by Jean-Michel O.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 05/19/2022 11:06:02
Shadowrun: Sixth World Companion (Core Character Rulebook) As others are saying (indeed as most shadowrun players will say, or so it seems), I was not impressed with 6th ed. Not at all. The more time you gave it, the more you were really just giving it rope to hang itself with. In fact my group gave up on 6th ed, we went back to playing 3rd ed - which wiped the floor with 6e when you played them side by side. Having given up on 6e once already, this book's only attraction is the lure that the section of 'optional rules' might alter 6e to the point that it's playable, possibly even enjoyable. It's certainly not a cure all for 6e's ills, theres still fundamental issues with 6e, flaws at root level that just won't get cured with tweaks and the fixes are so deep that they'd really constitute a 7e. To name a few.... skill list (I can't be an ace gunner without being mcguyver? ffs!). Still issues with the entire major/minor action system. Still issues with the way AR/DV is an entirely separate sum t...

Minsc and Boo's Journal of Villainy (5e)
by Mark O.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/19/2022 10:45:55
Minsc and Boo's Journal of Villainy (5e) I got this book (hardcover) on release, and felt it deserved a review now I've had a chance to use it. Full disclosure, I am a big fan of the Baldur's Gate series (which this take a lot of its lore/cues from). I think the book overall is great; I love the group patrons, the 5e versions of some classic FR monsters, the 'snapshot' cities with useful and flavourful shops The thing I think lets it down for a BG video game fan (and why I'm docking it a star, you may feel stronger about the following and consider it a 3, or not care at all and consider it a 5) is the bizarre direction the established characters take, likely just to get them here to 5e, 100-odd years after those original games take place: * Vaylgar taking longevity potions, in the video game he has personal (familial) beef with magic users and magic use over life and death. * Kivan and Cernd being a couple where the games had zero indication Kivan was gay; his main plot revolved around reve...

Mothership: A Pound of Flesh There is so much included in this little package - great value! The module tells such a dark, twisted, adult, and modern story. I loved it. This is an entire campaign in 52 pages, almost everything you need is here. I will definitely buy more from Tuesday Knight Games.

Chunky Cheese's Eateria The most fun you're ever going to have with a trifold pamphlet in any way, shape, or form. I have this in both print and PDF and both look great. This thing packs enough fun for at least a session, maybe more, and it's absolutely worth picking up.

The Tragedy That Begot Ternwillow (TROIKA Compatible)

The Tragedy That Begot Ternwillow (TROIKA Compatible) This book is feels like pieces of a very sad anime that got canceled before its finale episode. If I ever end up running mech stuff in any capacity in Troika, it'll be something that I reach for. Otherwise, I'm going to re-read it every once in a while just because.
