Bloodlines of the New Millennium

Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 05/30/2020 01:51:41
Bloodlines of the New Millennium This is Lazy writing. There is no mechanics for a bloodline weakness, the Disciplines are not even in the proper format, also he computer discipline is shoddy at best.

Unbreakable | Volume 1
by Stephen D.
Publisher: Unbreakable Publishers
Date Added: 05/29/2020 23:32:07
Unbreakable | Volume 1 Content Review: I have read through the PDF when I purchased this on 2020-05-14. I received my hard copy on 2020-05-29, almost exactly two weeks later. I knew when I saw this on the D&D subreddit and on GeekTyrant (who introduced me to the Uncaged series), I knew this would be good. I, myself, run a 5e Wuxia homebrew campaign. I am not Asian and I took great care to not have this be a Western-stereotyped adventure. To help with this task, I read the following books to help bolster my campaign: "The Condor Heroes", "Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio", "Japanese Ghost Stories", "Tao Te Ching" and "The Bhagavad Gita" to name a few. This book is hands down the fastest and best way to introduce Asian myths and stories respectfully into D&D campaigns. The ten adventures in Vol 1 are fantastic and can really seamlessly be integrated into any campaign. This will be a fantastic way to still run my game while I need to write an adven...

Monsters!Monsters! 2nd Edition
by Michael A. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Trollhalla Press
Date Added: 05/29/2020 22:36:18
Monsters!Monsters! 2nd Edition As a long time fan of Vampire: the Masquerade, it always amused me when people said that was the first game to focus on monsters. Monster! Monsters! of course predated it by nearly 15 years. Another Zanny brainchild of Ken St Andre, Monsters! Monsters! follows that same simple systems as Tunnels and Trolls - a d6 pool and summation mechanic with a xd6 skill mechanic focused primarily on a character's attributes. The rules are fast and easy, and can be learned in about 5 minutes, and the character sheet fits on an index card. Monsters! Monsters! however, takes the game in totally new directions than T&T. There are dozens of monster kindreds to play as, with their own unique rules and modifiers. Whereas other roleplaying games focus on rules complexity, M!M! tries to make the game interesting with tons of variety to supplement the simple rules. Additionally, M!M! 2nd edition is only 67 pages long, introducing some rules clarifications and additions from Deluxe Tunnels &amp...

Retrostar Rulebook
by Thomas W.
Publisher: Spectrum Games
Date Added: 05/29/2020 21:33:17
Retrostar Rulebook Retrostar tops my list of "most-want-to-run/play" RPGs. The PDF is beautiful to look at and really captures the feel of late 70s/ early 80s Sci-Fi TV. What truly stands out are the example TV Series. Each series is incredibly well-imagined and could easily have been a real show. I would have watched any of them and would be happy to use any of them as setting in a RPG now. I wish Spectrum offered it in print... other than that though I can't find anything bad to say. Bravo....

Now Playing in Theaters: Far-Away Galaxies
by Thomas W.
Publisher: Spectrum Games
Date Added: 05/29/2020 21:25:02
Now Playing in Theaters: Far-Away Galaxies Some good ideas here but I will complain a little over value. $4? For the same price I got the entire *Barbarians of Lemuria* rulebook, possibly one of the finest fantasy RPGs ever. Spending your hard-earned cash on this supplement gets you 12 pages total, one of which is the cover, one credits page, a table of contents, a full page art spread, and a modified character sheet. That leaves seven pages of actual game text. Uncharacteristic for Spectrum-Games, who routinely offer bundled deals here of their entire lines, allowing one to purchase complete runs of some of the most imaginative games for minuscule fees....

Fortune's Childe
by Patrick H.
Publisher: Hawvermale Paper & Pen
Date Added: 05/29/2020 19:11:21
Fortune's Childe This game has an interesting idea but the execution is pointlessly complex. I get almost an old-school vibe from the way skills and checks fit together, except it feels like this hasn't been playtested at all. Take "Dark Fhama." All checks in this game involve drawing a Major Arcana card. If that card is inverted (meaning upside-down), the character earns 2DF. This happens frequently--about every other draw, because the game stresses that you should shuffle the deck on both orientations, which means that at any given time about half the cards will be inverted. So every two checks, you wind up adding 2DF--or if you prefer, an average of one for *every single check you make.* The thing is, Dark Fhama is also a penalty to your checks. After eight checks or so, you will likely have 8DF. Dark Fhama can only be discharged under certain circumstances, and only once a day, and most importantly, **your Dark Fhama score is a penalty on every single check you make**. Speaking...

Conrad's Fantasy
by Fredrick R.
Publisher: Better Games
Date Added: 05/29/2020 18:06:42
Conrad's Fantasy 1st Book in a three book set that was known as Barony. Very revolutionary for the time and still does things other games can not. You can not easily compare this to other rpg games. The system is very unique. For the Game Mast a purchase of this system should be mandatory. You will always have a new adventure handy with it’s unique mechanics for generating a game. Perfect for the players who love to go off the rails. Within a few moments you have a new adventure generated from consequences from their previous actions. Game play is fast and snappy. ...

I6 Ravenloft (1e)
by Mark L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/29/2020 17:23:43
I6 Ravenloft (1e) The printed book took 1 week to be delivered and it did not disappoint. The maps toward the center page are slight obscured but all in all a great reprint for a great price! As for the module a current DM will have to either run this adventure at 1E (AD&D) stats or modify the stats to current DND rules, but most DM's love doing things like this. This module is for medium to advanced DM levels of experience... play Phandelver and simpler modules first before tackling this one, you and your players will enjoy it even more. The rating is a 9 or 10 out of 10!...

Metahumans Rising
by Asen G.
Publisher: House Dok Productions
Date Added: 05/29/2020 16:00:07
Metahumans Rising Nice game about superpowered beings! I like how it's not trying to force the morality of the Silver Age/Bronze Age/whatever on the reader. Instead, it gives you options to create your own setting. And, as I said in the review about Fractured Kingdom, it's nice that the system is that versatile. It's also nice that you can actually stat up an unpowered human (Batman, anyone?) and have him/her compete with the powered beings as an equal. Batman, for example, would simply have a powerful fighting style and maybe some additional points for his Batarangs....

Fantasy Portrait: Christmas Elves

Fantasy Portrait: Christmas Elves The art feels more just like ladies modeling and doesn't feel elvish. It is decent art but too pinup for my tastes.

The Riot Act - (PF)

The Riot Act - (PF) An Endzeitgeist.com review This expansion-module to the massive (and excellent) Bard’s Gate city supplement clocks in at 18 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 13 pages of content, so let’s take a look! This review was requested by my patreon supporters; I never even noticed it came out back in the day, until one of my patreon supporters told me to get it and review it recently. Being pretty OCD and surprised that this flew under my radar, I went ahead… The Riot Act is a module set in Bard’s Gate (and yes, you should have that book to run it, unless you’re willing to make some serious modification), situated in The Lost Lands, for 4 characters of 2nd level. The module mentions that a rogue or bard is helpful, and I’d concur – skills will be useful. More than that, you’ll need means to dish out SERIOUS amounts of damage and high Will saves – scratch that, the boss is simply unfair if played even hal...
