Gunderholfen I love this adventure and its really well laid out. Lots of NPC's in the town of Longfelt for adventures to meet and I really like the random tables for encounters in and around the city. I cant believe one person did all this work, very impreessive. Ive ran the first lvl of the dungeon and its pretty straight forward. I had to stop running it because of work but Im getting the group back toghether and I will be running it over the summer. I recommend getting the map pack because the maps use a lot of ink if u print them out yourself. This adventure is setup for 1e or OSRIC but it doesnt take much work if ur using another version like OSE or b/x. Im using OSE and it works jus fine for that rule set. Looking forward to seeing whats down on the lower lvls. Its a good investment and it can be inserted into any campaign world with ease. Get the PDF book combo if u buy the book....

2300 AD Traveller: 2300

2300 AD  Traveller: 2300 Originally posted here: [https://theotherside.timsbrannan.com/2022/05/review-2300-ad-
-traveller-2300-1986.html](https://theotherside.timsbrannan.-
com/2022/05/review-2300-ad-traveller-2300-1986.html) Traveller, in its first 10 years, stayed pretty consistent and took me about two weeks to work through. The next 20 years are going to be much faster. I am going to start off with one today I only know very little about. Traveller: 2300 also known as 2300 AD. Before getting into any books or research here is what I do know. This was supposed to be the start of a new line for GDW. It dealt with the earliest time in the Traveller Universe, specifically 2300 AD on Earth. There was a tie-in with their Twilight 2000 game line. In 1986 I was very deep into AD&D to exclusion of all else save for college prep. So this one is 100% new for me. **2300 AD or Traveller: 2300** Ok. Let's do this one right from the start. This is not really a Traveller game. While I am sure many p...

Wild West Cinema rulebook
by Michael T.
Publisher: Spectrum Games
Date Added: 05/16/2022 10:07:35
Wild West Cinema rulebook I’ve played and enjoyed Wild West RPGs and hope to do so again. I own a ridiculous amount of western role-playing games for someone who’s never run one (Ace & Eights, Western Hero, Coyote Trails, Boot Hill, GURPS Old West, Westhedge, etc.) so it took me a long time to finally buy Wild West Cinema. And boy I’m glad I did. This has to be not only the best Western RPG I’ve ever read but also the best RPG rule set that Spectrum Games has (and I have nearly every one of those as well). And thank god they didn’t try to find some awkward way to use poker cards because…”It’s a Western!”. Slightly irked that there aren’t more (than 1) of the Western Archetypes that are female, though of course, there is no reason you couldn’t play a female Drifter, Gunslinger, Indian Outcast, Outlaw and even Preacher Man. Still I think there’s a Soiled Dove or Homestead Protector archetype that could have added to the fun. Some great writing and the dip into “Alternity” style character definitions is we...

US Marshals: A Shared Storytelling Game Of Justice In The American Wild West
by Harold C.
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games
Date Added: 05/16/2022 06:26:39
US Marshals: A Shared Storytelling Game Of Justice In The American Wild West Overall - I had to rate this at 2 stars out of five - not because the writing was bad, or that the author's point of view was objectionable or anything along those lines... I gave it a low rating largely because the purpose for which I purchased this product was not met. I'm currently running a campaign set in New Mexico 1867 and one of my player characters was offered a chance to become a territorial deputy. As such, the first words out of the player's mouth were "What are my duties, what laws do I enforce" and other similiar questions. If you're looking to find answers to those questions - they are sadly lacking in this booklet. I will have to try and find some online resource that explains what laws a territorial marshal is supposed to enforce, where his jurisdiction lies, and what he's supposed to do from time to time. In all? This product may well be worth your while as a game system and what have you, but as a means of fleshing things out...

Advanced Tiny Dungeon
by Robert L.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 05/16/2022 06:02:07
Advanced Tiny Dungeon Overall: This is a great alteration of the core Tiny Dungeon system. It fleshes out a lot of aspects while still keeping the core system easy to learn and use. Ultimately I feel this is an improvement over the original system and hope the Gallant Knight Games does similiar 'Advanced' series for their other products that are based on TD2e. I also hope they come out with a Hardcover 8x11 size book (not a fan of the smaller size that TD2e came in), the formatting of the PDF suggests this won't be an option however. Here is a quick pro/con list pro: formatting is more aestetically pleasing pro: Artwork is a lot better (than TD2e) pro: Conversion rules are given which is a plus pro: Special effects actions are nice pro: leveling system expanded con: the bookmarks for the pdf are disorganized con: PCs start with a mastered weapon (same in TD2e but I don't agree with it - I house rule no mastered weapons at start) con: post level 8 xp expenditure options fee...

Shadowrun: Sixth World Companion (Core Character Rulebook)
by Rion S.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 05/15/2022 18:54:47
Shadowrun: Sixth World Companion (Core Character Rulebook) This book has a ton of options in it. Some of the best provide alternate character generation methods, and rule variants to patch some of the issues many SR players find problematic with 6e. For a 210 page book, it pack a lot of options inside. Character creation is definitely expanded to be in line with prior editions, but there are also lots of RP options in here. As someone who has chosen not to play SR6, this book is the one that could make me take a new look at it. The variant rules make certain issues I had go away or become workable. The editing also appears to have had a lot of attention paid to it. I am happily suprised at the content and quality here. Hopefully the quality here is an indication of future products. ...

Q1 Queen of the Demonweb Pits (1e)
by Adam O.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/15/2022 15:15:16
Q1 Queen of the Demonweb Pits (1e) I just finished this adventure, and what can I say...I have mixed feelings. tl;dr: I would treat this adventure as more of a campaign setting. Take the elements here that sound cool and use them, but I would not recommend actually playing this as written. I didn't have fun with this one. For context, I didn't run this with the G or D series modules. My game ended with a different reason for the players to go into the demonweb. I also never played AD&D, though I love to go back to classic modules for the sake of pulling some of that old school design into my 5e games. First, the good (beware ye of some spoilers): There's some really cool stuff in here. I appreciate having an adventure set in the demonweb, with a final fight against Lolth. The way that spell effects are changed by the Abyss is a fantastic touch. I also like the way that the demonweb intersects with itself in ways that don't make spacial sense. These two factors really push forward the context ...

The Expanse: Secrets of Lemuria
by Audun L.
Publisher: Green Ronin Publishing
Date Added: 05/15/2022 12:13:14
The Expanse: Secrets of Lemuria **This is a spoiler-free review.** And because of that, the review is somewhat superficial. This is a short adventure. It is however perfect if you want to launch a new series of adventures or even a new campaign. It is easily useable as a side-mission too, revealing changes in the setting as time goes and the ringspace becomes a part of everyone's lives. The adventure hints at conspiracies, dangers, and conflicting interests. However, a GM may be easily (too) inspired by these premises and potential introduced behind the scenes to not want to launch a few more episodes related to the plot lines introduced in the adventure. The writing flows well and it is a quick read with regard to prep work. There are suggestions for potentialities due to player actions, (un)intended consequences, and risks, but the adventure stays on track and is focused on the story of the adventure. It is a fun read, and I presume fun to play (I have not been able to get it on the table yet). It mainly uti...

The Six Paths

Date Added: 05/15/2022 04:32:06
The Six Paths Ok after talking to the creative team this is a full edit and repointing of my original review. I have adjusted my score from 1 to 4, I did consider scoring it a 3, but the book is essential very good, the artwork is excellent, and there are good ideas running through it. I'm not 100% behind this book, that one paragraph still annoys me, but knowing what the author is trying to get across has calmed my rage as it were. I still have issues with the text of the one paragraph explaining if vindan and nandai are trans. I would prefere it to say yes they are (to the most part), but with differences to mordern trans people mainly because of being brought up the heortling culture. This would be a more inclusive statement and build upon peoples exisiting assumptions and relatable frames of refference. By saying they arent, (this still feels somewhat exclusionary) and then trying to explain what they are after removing any common ground the reader might have, is making more work and in...

Iron Gauntlets Classic Reprint
by Marc C.
Publisher: Precis Intermedia
Date Added: 05/15/2022 00:32:54
Iron Gauntlets Classic Reprint Iron Gauntlets is a new favorite fantasy RPG of mine. For a lot of reasons. But in short--great deal, awesome product, worth getting. First off I'm just going to say I like the feel of it. Right from the cover you feel invited into a high-action, higher-fantasy world. The interior is also really well laid out and designed with classy detailed illustrations. Personally I like that kind of feeling in some of my fantasy game worlds, and the fact that the book echoes the theme is inspiring in its own way. As a game product, it's also very professional and "batteries included" in philosophy, which means you are paying for the full game experience. You get clear instructions, gameplay examples, worldbuilding guidelines and tips, a flexible but also reasonably crunchy ruleset (I think of it as "chewy" since it's crunchy but substantial and flexible!), and all kinds of amazing add ons: 8 races, 12 backgrounds (nomad, seafolk, lord, etc.), 17 vocations (from...

Diamond Races: Race Equity Variant Rules This has become an essential race modifier ruleset for our PF1 group's tabletop game. It's quite innovative mechanics without extreme complexity - so it's useful for all play styles. I love too, that there's 3PP support for Spheres of Might and Paths of War. 5 Stars! Awesome. Hopefully there will be a follow-up to this booklet.

Commercial Fantasy Art Subscription 2022

Publisher: Grim Press
Date Added: 05/14/2022 18:20:36
Commercial Fantasy Art Subscription 2022 This review is written in May 2022, when 82 images have been released. I purchased this product when it was $40. There are several main types of art featured so far, and each has their own style, so consider the following as separate reviews. Line Art (7 images): The line art features a number of characters, scenes, and landscapes. The lines are clean, and a few images feature action that is exciting. I would rate the line art ***5 stars.*** Color Illustrations (Roughly 17 images): The color illustrations feature creatures, items, and characters. The styles range from flat line art with color, digital art, and some art that appears to be traditional media. This art is largely quite good, with the traditional media looking a little out of place compared to the other pieces. The creature art is the best in my opinion. I would rate the color illustrations ***4 stars.*** Photobashed Images (Roughly 58 images): These images look like thy have been bashed together in an image editing sof...
