Gamescapes: Story Maps, Sci-fi Set 2
by Anthony S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/22/2008 09:07:23
Very nice, but my least favorite of the 3 currently (!) available. Certainly fills a need though, the default map ends up very large and is good for a large open area, which the other 2 maps don't provide, so it fits well with them. Great for the end of a running battle trying to escape to the hangar bay and an escape ship, or the place where a large assault might begin.

Not perfect though, because the one thing that is missing is a link to the other maps. There are no corridors off this map so the only way In or Out is through the hangar bays themselves, making this a dead end. One page with a corridor off the back would be very welcome.

Gamescapes: Story Maps, Sci-fi Set 3
by Anthony S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/22/2008 09:01:38
My favorite of the 3 available sets. The colors are gorgeous and there are many different rooms and corridors to link together in different ways. Easy to cut out due to most rooms being a variation of square, but the colors and items in the maps, along with the many different corridors you can use make you think it all looks real.

My only.. request.. would be to have a one page explanation of what all the different icons mean. For example, it appears that there are a number of elevators but no idea where they go. There is also one room set off from the rest that appears to be accessible only by 2 elevators and some other elevators that are just... there but don't know where they would go. Of course, they are only supplying a beautiful map, so BYOI (bring your own imagination :) )

Perfect for smaller mini's, the drawn in chairs and equipment look sized right. The colors are fabulous and there are enough different rooms and corridors to make quite a few different bases.

Shaintar Equipment Cards 1
by Joel M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/29/2008 21:52:49
The artwork on these Equipment Cards are great!
The entire run of the cards (Talisman Studios Story Cards) is superb…. Really some very cool artwork and design!

I use these cards as handouts for my players (we mostly play D&D and Pathfinder from Paizo), when the group finds treasure or buys new equipment.

My players absolutely love the cards! – Much better to hand your players “real” treasure (via the Story Cards), than just read off a list of bland items notes.

With the Story Cards, the players get a good visualization of the item, and makes for some real excitement when the players divide up treasure, trade items between players, or even buy new equipment.

Talisman Studios… my players and I thank you for making such a great product!

Shaintar: Immortal Legends Player's Guide
by Jonathan P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/27/2008 13:50:56
Looks good. The art and layout are very nice. Plus, a few good ideas for some twists on the Savage Worlds rules.

Unfortunately, the setting itself is very derivative. A designer can pull off a typical fantasy setting if she instills enough personality and quirkiness into it to make it interesting. But Shaintar just doesn't have it. At least for me. Everything here I've seen before, many times, and often better. The closest the author comes to originality are the races, but even these are just superficial revisions of standard fantasy fare. There's nothing that makes Shaintar stand out for me as a setting I would want to GM or play in.

Which doesn't mean there's nothing here for someone else. If you like the Savage Worlds rules and want to play in a standard, D&D-style fantasy setting, this is probably perfect for you (I believe it's actually the only typical fantasy setting for Savage Worlds on the market).

Also note: this is my impression of just the Player's Guide. The PG left me cold enough that I'm not going to spend my time or money on the rest of Shaintar, but that could be my loss: the full Shaintar: Immortal Legends book contains expanded setting info and a plot-point campaign which might add the depth and personality that I found lacking here. (But, the designers would have a loooooooooong way to go to impress me.)

I'll also admit, a large part of my negative reaction stems from what seem to be the author's repeated, strained attempts to convince me that Shaintar is a highly original, inspired setting that should be capturing my imagination, when in fact I find it a hackneyed and occasionally insipid setting that captured nothing more than $11.96 of my money.

And whose idea was it to include those two bits of godawful fiction at the beginning and end? They do add flavor--something akin to brussels sprouts dipped in motor oil and simmered over flaming cow dung.
