Rite & Ritual

Rite & Ritual The idea sounds nice, but due to the spells in SotDL rarely having long-lasting effects, things like "double the AOE range" and "increase duration from 1 minute to entire 2 minutes" are mostly useless, when the rituals take a long time to perform.

RM4 House of Strahd (2e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

RM4 House of Strahd (2e) Reviewing the PoD copy I received. This one is one of the better PoD copies I've gotten from DTRPG, as the text is almost perfect. I really, REALLY wish that we could somehow get professional-level copies of the maps that came in these old modules and box sets, but I understand the limitations. The poster map is at the back of the book, spread across 4 pages, and it's of course not ideal but in this instance, it's there and it looks decent. The module itself fantastic, and it gives you a lot of options for making Strahd your own and giving you options for how he engages with your players. This module's status as a legendary adventure is well-deserved. Hard to not suggest this for anyone looking to run a Ravenloft/horror campaign. The print quality is higher than most of the PoD copies I've ordered; the module is, despite a few "on-rails" segments, a lot of fun to run and to play. As a nice bonus, the module features the original stats from the mod...

When Black Roses Bloom (2e)
by Zachary B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2020 16:37:40
When Black Roses Bloom (2e) PoD copy is pretty impressive. Considering the maps that came with the original are inserted on pages in the back, it turned out pretty good. I hope that DTRPG/WoC can figure out a way to reproduce these module/box-set maps at some point because I would gladly pay extra to have them. The maps are at the back, and the way they're laid-out makes them somewhat useful. Text is crisp and readable throughout the book. In terms of print quality, it's all there with no complaints. The module itself is excellent, because who doesn't love a Dragonlance/Ravenloft crossover? My only minor complaint is that the cover art is slightly off-center but it's not a big deal....

Dragonlance Adventures (1e)
by Zachary B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2020 16:34:27
Dragonlance Adventures (1e) PoD copy review. The one I got was surprisingly good. I decided to order one rather than pay the price that the original is going for. I understand the complaints about the text being blurry and difficult to read, but it's not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. The text on my copy is SLIGHTLY blurred but it's perfectly readable and really not as bad as you might be imagining. I'm actually really glad I got it for such a good price. The book itself is useful if you're planning on running a Dragonlance campaign. It will go perfectly with Tales of the Lance. It is definitely a scan copy, though, and not "original electronic." That said, I'm still glad I got it. So, caveat emptor, but my copy isn't really that bad at all. Also, my copy DOES have the title printed on the spine....

Juggernaut

Juggernaut I played this game using a couple of Rock Band drum kits and boxes as Juggernaut, with a tray holding the deck of cards. It was an incredibly tense game and a nicely simple one to prepare for. If you want some Twilight Zone style fun and an introduction to Parlour LARP, then this is for you. I wrote a full review and enclosed some photos of my group in lab coats here: http://www.whodaresrolls.com/rpgs/juggernaut/

The Gothic Earth Gazetteer (2e) PoD copy. The black levels are just slightly off enough to make the text a bit "off." It's still readable without inducing a headache, but it's not a perfect copy. Overall it's a decent copy and I can't really complain for the price. The content is very useful if you plan on running Masque of the Red Death or any Cthulhu-By-Gaslight type campaign. For reference, my copy did not come with the title printed on the spine; again, not a big deal. A solid 4-star PoD sourcebook....

FRQ1 Haunted Halls of Eveningstar (2e)
by Zachary B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2020 16:16:30
FRQ1 Haunted Halls of Eveningstar (2e) Ordered a PoD copy. For the price, there's not much to complain about, really. The text is only very slightly blurry, but it is readable and won't cause any eye strain unless your copy is different or you have eyesight issues. For some reason, my copy has some coloration issues on the cover, where it's much, much darker than the original; not really a big deal but it's hard to see some of the finer details of the cover art. The module itself is surprisingly good, considering a lot of 2e published modules are rather "on-rails." It is an excellent way to open up an epic Forgotten Realms campaign. There are some locations mentioned that are not really fleshed out and that's something you'll have to do, or adjust for your campaign. It's kind of a no-frills, straightforward adventure that will give players a foothold in one of the Forgotten Realm's most important regions, from which they can propel themselves into Faerun at large. For the...

FR6 Dreams of the Red Wizards (1e)
by Zachary B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/28/2020 16:04:27
FR6 Dreams of the Red Wizards (1e) PoD copy is surprisingly good and almost looks exactly like the original. The colors on the cover are nice and vivid. The content itself is useful for anyone running a FR campaign in which the Red Wizards will make an appearance or be featured. There's a lot of good content here. The map at the back of the book is also surprisingly good. For the price, it's hard to not recommend this sourcebook. I disagree with the previous reviewer about it being fuzzy...maybe it was just the specific print shop that shipped my book, but the text is perfectly readable, crisp even. The background color that was used widely across 1E products is there and is unnecessary but doesn't really get in the way too much. For the record, my copy DID have the title printed on the spine; I know this is sometimes a hit or miss affair that seems to depend on which location/shop your order was sent to....

Doskvol Street Maps - Detailed Maps for Blades in the Dark
by Charles E.
Publisher: Old Dog Games
Date Added: 05/28/2020 15:55:28
Doskvol Street Maps - Detailed Maps for Blades in the Dark Beautiful and intricate maps. Doskvol already looked gorgeous, but this adds so much worldbuilding and perspective to play with just with the names of the locations. I've been a player in a game which used this and can't wait to get behind the screen to have a go at running with it myself.

Neverland - The Impossible Island
by Evan H.
Publisher: Diana Gaeta
Date Added: 05/28/2020 13:47:00
Neverland - The Impossible Island So, I wrote a pseudo-review over on twitter where I just sorta screamed about how much I liked this setting while I read through it, but to try and give folks a more concise version of all that: Diana has made an incredible, imaginative setting that could fairly easily be slotted in to *any* game, not just a 5e game. Her Neverland is chock full of opportunities for intrigue, high adventure, battles on the high seas or in the air, and whimsical magic. All the parts of Neverland you know and love are present, expanded beyond their source material in ways that made me, someone who didn't know the canon mythology very well, questioning what was existing and what was expanded. There are joinable factions beyond the Lost Ones and The Pirates, and they're distinct while feeling recognizeable, despite me not knowing of them ahead of time. They feel like they belong, and give reasoning for their worldviews and who they're likely to ally with (and in which circumstances). ...

Neverland - The Impossible Island This is absolutely wonderful. I love how much care and passion was put into this setting. Diana has done a fantastic job of taking Barrie's Neverland & characters, removing possible problematic issues, and adapting them into a well established setting for 5E. I look forward to the possibility of more, with the Storyteller system as well.

Monsters!Monsters! 2nd Edition
by Chet C.
Publisher: Trollhalla Press
Date Added: 05/28/2020 09:48:42
Monsters!Monsters! 2nd Edition There was a time when there was only one RPG that you could buy. Arguably, many of us started playing various "monsters" -- goblins, dwarfs, orcs, half-orcs, a 3/4 orc (Don't ask!), thieves, and evil magicians were normal in my gaming groups. Then came the second RPG -- i.e. Tunnels & Trolls. A new concept (among several) in RPG was introduced - There were no automatic monsters. Every species (or "race," if you prefer) was a "Kindred" and with the same access to legal protection as humans -- provided they lived and interacted with humans. Yet the dungeons, tunnels, mine shafts, etc., were the haven of so many truly anti-social types of all kindreds. And it wasn't long before the creator of that second RPG wondered what life looked like to those creatures who hid in the dark and hoarded loot the player characters wanted. Gold, jewels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and other valuable hoarded objects meant that mostly-human groups would i...

Bullet Journaling for Gamemasters, Revised
by A customer
Publisher: Dancing Lights Press
Date Added: 05/28/2020 09:26:54
Bullet Journaling for Gamemasters, Revised I agree with Joe K.'s review; this book does a good job of building on the foundation established by the BulletJournal.com site and extending it for us in RPGs. I've been bullet journaling for the last two years or so for my work and home life. Extending it to RPGs is something I experimented with, but didn't get very far. Taking a step back and reading "Bullet Journaling for Gamemasters" helped me gather and organize my own thoughts on how to apply the bullet journals to my campaigns. The addition of photos to the book helped me visualize what the author was shooting for. While the the concepts themselves are easy to grasp, it's always nice to see how folks implemented them. The spreads themselves are straightforward and hew closely to bullet journaling at its more Spartan end, so don't expect wild and crazy designs for habit trackers or funky-looking logs. That's not a criticism; it's a design choice that I appreciate. I can...

Fractured Kingdom
by Asen G.
Publisher: House Dok Productions
Date Added: 05/28/2020 09:11:49
Fractured Kingdom A cyberpunk system with a setting I actually like. And the characters have been empowered by their contact with Outer Realms. In short, this is what happens when you cross cyberpunk with urban fantasy. Which, IMO, fits **much** better than crossing it with D&D-style fantasy like...some other cyberpunk games. And it definitely helps that the system is actually pretty good. I mean, few games can allow you to play both a brutal, quick street fight and a long, gruelling boxing/MMA match! Well, this one can. And best part of it, it does it without the dicepools ever getting over 6d6!...
