The Sea Demon's Gold (5e)
by Gabriel R.
Publisher: Arc Dream Publishing
Date Added: 05/17/2022 19:28:57
The Sea Demon's Gold (5e) This was the first module I ran for my 5e group. Great mix of sword and sorcery and Lovecraftian horror. My only reservation is that the bit where the PCs get thrown overboard and caught in a current is way underwritten. (I ended up simplifying it but as written it basically says "make up a bunch of cool stuff here.") Nonetheless a great module and would gladly run again with a new group.

CreepyPasta the Role-Playing Game
by Benny A.
Publisher: 26 Letter Publishing
Date Added: 05/17/2022 19:11:10
CreepyPasta the Role-Playing Game The description for this system was right, this book *is* cursed. I picked up this book because I was curious as a big fan of creepypasta what sorts of ttrpgs were available, and i've got very mixed feelings. For starters, the advice given for running horror sessions and the tools provided for customization of your own horror villain are excellent and extremely flavorful, useful even if you aren't intending to try and run this system. There is also a very interesting system for a character's shift from naivety into madness which I think is a great way to handle reaction to horrors and I will definitely be stealing it and tacking it on to other systems when I run, so all respect goes to the author for that. Unfortunately, there are some decent reasons why you indeed shouldn't run this as the book presents. First and foremost is the unique dice-buy system advertised in the description. I like novel ways to resolve dice tests, but this is unfortunately a case where I...

VtM Clans Character Sheets [5th Edition] PACK 2/4
by Laurence C.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 05/17/2022 16:51:57
VtM Clans Character Sheets [5th Edition] PACK 2/4 Reviewing the English version The Good Beautifully constructed sheets (can't state this enough). Lots of space to expand on ideas and help keep everything in tidy shape with alternate space to write specialties etc. Everything works perfectly whether if using as an e-sheet or if printing out. Would Like to see More Clan symbols/iconogrophy on all pages to make them feel more in keeping and individualised would be really welcome. Cover sheet feels like could use more, the art and quotes are great, but feels like lacking a little Clan identity. Overall I think these sheets are beautiful and incredibly well made, and to me, it's a shame there isn't more identifying marks to make each one stand out as belonging to each clan on a per page or cover sheet basis (like the old 3rd ed. clanbook sheets with the symbols front and centre on each page etc.). I totally appreciate this is just my own aesthetic taste and opinion though. These really are incredibly well made sheets! ...

L1 The Secret of Bone Hill (1e)

L1 The Secret of Bone Hill (1e) Printing of this module was good, text sharp/clear and drawn images are wonderful. No noticeable blurs anywhere in the module. Only issues with this print is: you can see the lines of the old module scans, the placing of the these scans in the module pages are slightly crooked, 2 pages are missing their page number and some pages are too close to the binding - making it slightly difficult to read in some text paragraphs. Im happy with this product and would recommend this purchase.

Storm From A Teacup
by Craig P.
Publisher: Chaosium
Date Added: 05/17/2022 12:55:34
Storm From A Teacup The use of tea as a central theme in this scenario is a great idea! I also appreciated the generic location which gave me the flexibility to slot this into my ongoing campaign set in 1929 Chicago. I simply popped my investigator on a bus out to a more rural location. It's refreshing to see a scenario which isn't pinned to Arkham or the surrounding area. I also ran this as a single-player game and it worked, though I'm using Pulp, and I did rewrite somewhat heavily. There are a few proofing and editing issues but nothing major. The Table of Contents includes an incorrectly named NPC: Charlie/George the bouncer. This error repeats on p.9 in the boxed skill section. It looks like an edited change of name to avoid duplication with the Chief of Police which wasn't quite changed throughout but I could be wrong. There's a partial sentence on p.6: "and get a better idea for..." I'd love to know what that was going to say! I made some fairly major chang...

05/review-megatraveller-1987.html) It is 1987. The year I graduated from High School and my first year in University. I knew about MegaTraveller, anyone that read Dragon Magazine even as infrequently as I was then knew about it. But again it is not a game I played. I do recall seeing it* played at a local con (SIU had a bunch of them) but (and this is the asterix) I could not really tell if it was Classic Traveller or MegaTraveller at the time. They had a lot of cool spaceships on a black hex map. I would not actually read MegaTraveller until the late 1990s. I was working on my Ph.D. and commuting all over Chicago. I found a local library that would honor my U of I Chicago library card and they had a copy of the MegaTraveller Player's Manual. I can't recall my impressions of the time all that much, just a memory of being on t...

SideQuests: Vol. II (Digital Bundle)

SideQuests: Vol. II (Digital Bundle) The Assassin's Hideaway is a fun little side quest, but sadly it's not without errors in the document. The table of contents at the start contains wrong titles (forsaken forest? a curse undone?). One of the enemy types (the bruisers) doesn't have a character sheet. (I replaced these with lvl8 appropriate bandits when I ran this) The character sheet of Omoru does not contain the poisoned daggers and shuriken that the text talks about. But other than that, my party enjoyed the side quest a lot.

Lost Among The Starlit Wreckage

Lost Among The Starlit Wreckage Absolutely fantastic journaling TTRPG! If you’ve never played a journaling TTRPG, this is a great place to start. If you have played and enjoy journaling games, I recommend “Lost Among the Starlit Wreckage”. It really allows you to dive deep into character development. This game also has a 2 player rule set that is phenomenal. Which is a rarity with this type of game. The rules are easy to understand and employ and give you an excellent opportunity to write interesting dialogue with a partner. Overall, I’d say that this game is a rare gem. It’s definitely worth picking up and diving into. ...

Tomb of the Serpent Kings - Deluxe Print Edition
by Michael E.
Publisher: Skerples
Date Added: 05/17/2022 08:53:30
Tomb of the Serpent Kings - Deluxe Print Edition *Tomb of the Serpent Kings* opens with a blurb about the need for a good tutorial for OSR-style play, drawing an allusion to the self-explanatory nature of World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. As the players begin the dungeon, they are immediately faced with an example of this brand of tutorialization: after a few seemingly uninteresting terra-cotta snakemen, the players come across a clay statue with a silver ring – a ring that can only be pried from the statue's finger by breaking the statue entirely, and, in the process, unleashing a cloud of poison gas and revealing yet more treasure hidden inside the hollow shell. The players prompty revisit the other terra-cotta tombs, this time taking steps to avoid the poison, and being rewarded with additional hidden treasures. And so they learn their first lessons, about hidden treasure, hidden traps, and the patterns that will allow them to discover both. It's also their last lesson, because everything else in the dungeon is completely ...

WGS1 Five Shall Be One (2e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/17/2022 07:38:37
WGS1 Five Shall Be One (2e) Quest for legendary lost Barbarian blades, which the PCs get to wield. Some similarities to X4 Master of the Desert Nomads, as there are a number of exciting set pieces, culminating in the infiltration of an orc city (which is the best part). Somewhat linear, but worth the journey.

Bedlam

Bedlam Enjoyable solo rescue (or assassination) mission in an asylum. Supports multiple plays, as exploration can uncover useful items/safer routes; there are a number of possible endings. Well illustrated. A couple of possible corrections/improvements: entry 28, exit to 68, not 168; entry 212, it makes more sense for success to allow you an attempt to open the door (at entry 36). Highly recommended.

The Hammersmith Haunting A tightly written scenario with memorable NPCs (Shotgun Granny!) and an interesting premise. The interior layout and artwork is superb. This is a great example of the power of Call of Cthulhu for learning history as well.

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) Still one of the best books TSR ever published. The book is a good investment if ur interested in b/x. The quality is decent as the print is a scan of the old book. If u dont want to pay a lot for the original get this as it should last u for yrs to come depending on how well u take care of it. Get the PDF book combo to save money and put the PDF on ur phone so u can look the book over when ur on the go.
