Gamescapes: Story Maps: Distant Planet 1
by Keith (. T. A. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 02/07/2012 22:06:46

Distant Planet 1 is a good tabletop map set for any SF, Fantasy, Military, etc that needs a rocky out cropping and field below. In the Sci-Fi vein, the rocky outcropping reminds me a bit of the old Star Trek episode where Kirk fought hand to hand against a Gorn (giant-lizard-man). I like Savage Mojo's painted maps. They aren't photo realistic settings but paintings that capture an imaginative landscape yet still portray specific elements (trees, rocky outcroppings, streams, and alien fields) clearly. In the 15 page pdf you get the landscape broken out in 4 rows of 3 8"x8" squares. This gives a 24"x32" game mat. You can print off the right most 3rd and 4th row squares as they can be generic and extend the field. To get more ideas, you can see their samples weekly in the Drive ThruRPG/RPG Now weekly newsletter. That's where I saw them first.

Gamescapes: Stock Art, Fantasy Set 1
by Jason P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/24/2011 10:59:07

This is an excellent product full of high-quality and versatile art. This contains 10 stock art images in high-resolution and colour suitable for a variety of different games. It is worth the price in my opinion and I can see immediate application for most of them.

Caladon Falls (Savage Worlds)
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 04/14/2011 09:25:51

The Good:

  • Amazing production values as always.
  • More neat new Edges and Hindrances.
  • A unique fantasy campaign with a military theme but a lot of variety that shows what Suzerain can do pre-Heroic rank.

The Bad:

  • An underwhelming "Big Bad".
  • A few noticeable typos made it into the final product.
  • None of the cool, over the top, Heroic and up Suzerain stuff (at least not in the Plot Point Campaign).

Shanghai Vampocalypse (Savage Worlds)
by Dillard R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/10/2011 19:24:10

Well worth the money.

Yes you have to purchase two other books. Savage Worlds Explorers edition and Savage Suzerain, but you probably already have them or you wouldn't be looking at this book.

Good: If you like, evil vampires, Hong Kong movies, getting to play epic god like characters, cyberpunk and a setting other than European style or American style places this is the campaign setting for you.

Savage Mojo really does an outstanding job of providing enough material to complete the campaign. There are the main plot point sessions and a bunch of incidental sessions. Your PCs will make the next rank!

You have to save Shanghai by fighting 8 million vampires (not exaggerating) and you have twelve hours. You have swords, guns, magic and guts. Good luck, amigo.

Bad: I want more...just joking. I do want more, but that is not a bad thing.

Definitely worth the money.

Caladon Falls (Savage Worlds)
by Dillard R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/15/2011 22:08:14

Bottom line this is a five star product.

I do not rate that high very often.

The art is superb. The setting material is enough to get you into the game immediately and Savage Mojo has tons of freebies on line. Caladon Falls supports the original campaign (Relic) in the Savage Suzerain rules. If you follow the campaign and the savage tales at the end of the book your characters will end up at Heroic for sure. This also means that you can use these characters at a later time to close out that original campaign in Savage Suzerain.

I wish they had paper minis for the beastiary, but that is a minor issue.

The critters are imaginative. The villains are well thought out and original.

Its a military campaign with your characters as irregular forces. Maybe not the first time this has been done, but one of the best that I have seen.

I love military fiction and this is good military fantasy...and quite compelling.

Well worth the price.

Gamescapes: Story Maps: Ruins of the First Age (PDF)
by Keith (. T. A. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 02/05/2011 17:29:50

This product includes two high quality maps of 12 tiles each meant for printing and use in face-to-face games. The map depicts ruins and surrounding area with 8x8 inch tiles. If you plan to use it for a Virtual Table Top there's some work ahead of you. The maps are 8x8 inches bounded by white borders that overlap a bit. You'll need to crop the white border before using. (for instructions see http://bit.ly/e2usYV).

Gamescapes: Fantasy Battleground (PDF)
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/17/2011 16:53:35

When fully assembled, the "Fantasy Battleground" gamescape measures 24" x 32" and depicts a winding road where a battle of some sort has taken place. The flames and smoke suggest a very recent battle, and the two catapults in the upper right-hand corner suggest a siege, as does the large object in the top left, which appears to be a battering ram. However, there is no sign of a city wall, only some fragments of what might be a busted palisade. It makes you wonder (and not really in a good way) what that battering ram is doing there, so far away from the city gate. The style used by designer Alida Sazon seems somewhat impressionistic to me, producing a noticeably more "artsy" and less "realistic" style than I tend to prefer in products of this type. That's just personal preference, of course, and the gamescape does a pretty good job of delivering what it offers. As a general comment about this series, I do wish Savage Mojo would include an "overview" page showing a miniature version of the assembled map.

Gamescapes: Fantasy Battleground (PDF)
by Joe K. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/15/2011 14:01:08

Fantasy Battleground is a 14 page PDF. The first page is a cover splash page, as is the last page. The majority of the product is made up of images, eight squares by eight squres, with information on where the image takes place in the overall illustration on the bottom. The illustratons are color heavy, so go draft or laser print or be prepared to pay.

There are no bookmarks and no instructions outside of what is printed on the image page. One thing that would be handy to have here, is like 0one and some other maps publishers do, is to make an overall image so that the reader can see what the total effect will be like when assembling.

The battleground includes flags, wagons, weapons, grasslands, small fires, barrels and other bits that you might see from a finished batle. The art is solid, having a soft look but due to the nature of the illustrations being 2-D images, miniatues may look slightly off in comparission. For example, some of the barrels would be absolutely huge compared to standard 28mm figures. The flags go three or four squres. With miniatures the flags would take up one square. It's like a 3/4 view which doesn't necessarily work with flat maps.

One potential problem for some is that the images are very specific in how they play out. While someone with more imagination and time could find it useful, the way the images line up means that the images are going to form one larger picture and aren't meant to be used like some dungeon tiles might be where there is potential of shuffling the tiles around.

The product's relatively low cost, the quality of the art, and it's size, 3 top, 3 second, 3 middle, and 3 bottom, insures that if you're playing a game that requires some large scale size, like 4e, that you should be covered. There are several pieces that could be counted as difficult terrain, there are small woods to take cover in, and there are wagons to use for a quick retreat. The variety allows for some deeper strategies if your players enjoy that aspect of the game.

Fantasy Battleground will be a solid product for those looking for another outdoor encounter where the action just finished.

Noir Knights Player’s Guide (Savage Worlds)
by Samuel K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/12/2011 22:49:45

This is a fine addition to Savage Worlds and the Suzerain product line. Despite the initial look of it, it's not just another SW pulp setting - think "The X-Files" set in the Great Depression, and with high powered PCs who can be just as paranormal as the cases they investigate.

For my review of the full setting book, see here:

Gamescapes: Story Maps: Balloon Airship
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/06/2011 23:01:53

This well-conceived map set delivers exactly what it promises. The maps are high-quality, though the styles of, say, the wood flooring and the crates and barrels don't seem to be quite the same. I would definitely use these maps if running a game where this type of airship fit the setting.

Noir Knights (Savage Worlds)
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 12/28/2010 04:07:37

The Good:

  • A rip-roaring Depression era pulp setting that manages to avoid re-treading well-beaten paths.
  • Some great new Edges and Hindrances.
  • Very interesting, supernatural twists on existing historical events.
  • A setting section filled with plot seeds above and beyond the Plot Point Campaign.

The Bad:

  • Unfortunately, it doesn't feel very "noir".
  • The cover art falls shy compared other Savage Mojo releases.

Savage Suzerain (Savage Worlds)
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 12/21/2010 15:05:36

The Good:

  • Proof that there is "Life After Legendary"
  • A TON of character options including some great Edges.
  • Just a gorgeous book.
  • The best Savage Worlds Hindrance ever.

The Bad:

  • Some may be put off by some changes in common terminology.
  • Out of the "comfort zone" of PDF pricing, though the print is MORE than reasonable.

Caladon Falls: The Travelogue of Tavish Thorne
by Pasi V. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/12/2010 13:35:24

One of the most beautiful books I've seen here. Jason Engle's art is amazing, I spent a long time just flicking through the pages admiring the illustrations.

The story itself is nice, giving better access to the character Tavish Thorne than the world he is describing. That's not a bad thing at all, but for me this book was a nice, beautifully illustrated short story, not something that would spark my interest in the Suzerain campaign world.

The best free product I've downloaded here and definitely recommended.

Shanghai Vampocalypse (Savage Worlds)
by Thomas B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 11/05/2010 01:25:06

The Good: An epic mix of cyberpunk and mysticism, with real consequences for the PCs if they fail. An minicampaign truly worthy of "godlike" play.

The Bad: The biggest downside is that you really need two other books to get the most out of this (Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition and the Savage Suzerain book).

Shanghai Vampocalypse Player’s Guide (Savage Worlds)
by Anthony C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/19/2010 18:40:31

An interesting initial foray into what the demigod level of Savage World playing has to offer. It will appeal to fans of Feng Shui as it has a similar mix of Hong Kong action, weird tech, and magical tomfoolery. Also . . . vampires hordes for your ancient wise one or uzi packing ninja to dive into.
