The Keep of Lord Mmorpgus
by Nadine S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/12/2008 14:01:18

Somebody has too much free time on her hands. The author obviously had a lot of fun putting together this tongue-in-cheek collection of magical equipment. But before you laugh off such magical items as Barbaric Armor of the Rabbit or the Heroic Armor of the Triumphant Hedgehog, these silly named items are actually pretty cool, useful, and would add a funny splash to a game. Particularly interesting are the variant wands. Most interesting item in the collection—Rotted Mantle of Poverty, a tabard that is worn over normal clothes, with bonuses dependent on how charitable the wearer has been over the past week. The more you give, the more you get. For the price, a great addition to a your game resources.

Elemental Gemstones
by Nadine S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/12/2008 13:27:36

Just beautiful, though like Cosmology of Karma this product almost killed my printer. Well written overview of dozens of gems and their supposed magical properties. Gems by Elemental Affinity Chart provides a quick reference in case you want to find gems for specific elements.

SPIDERS!
by Tom B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/11/2008 12:15:10

If you have ever wanted to make spiders viable familiars or get more use out of them, this is the perfect product. Presents rules on arachnophobia, using spiders as familiars, alchemy uses for different spiders, and even a few fantasy variants to make things more interesting. Plenty of full color photos of real spiders, so don't show this to friends who really do have arachnophobia!

SHARK!
by Tom B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/11/2008 12:06:27

Very cool product that does a great job presenting a variety of sharks to liven up sea encounters. The PDF redefines the core shark stats with new information that better reflects real shark abilities. Different sharks are then presented with information and whether or not there is a modifier to the CR. Finally, there is some light info on shark products, so players can sell those shark carcasses and stuff instead of whining that the shark doesn't have treasure to loot!

A Book of Five Rings
by Tom B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/29/2008 07:52:36

A very basic translation of the text that would be good for someone new to the book. Besides the translation, it also includes a history of feudal Japan, lots of color illustrations from the time period, and background info on various martial arts formats of Japan. Good for people developing an interest in the period or as inspiration for people looking to run a game in the period.

Races of Neiyar: The Auronnes
by Tom B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/29/2008 07:44:03

If you want to play an uber bard, this is the race to do it with. The race is custom made to be the ultimate bard. Instruments that double as weapons, special feats and spells to enhance bard abilities. Very interesting history fluff also that explains the race's obsession with beauty and art.

The Psions of The Grandmaster
by Tom B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/28/2008 09:30:02

Make me want to run a game set in WWII. Two fully developed psionic NPCs with strong backgrounds. Good inspiration for a campaign.

Pantheon Building
by Jim C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/24/2008 00:37:45

For the price, this presents a couple of original influences for religion-building that are well worth adding to a DM's techniques, though they're not developed as systematically as I might like. There are better resources on the topic out there, if just starting out, such as Professor Barker's "Create a Religion for Fun and Profit".

Pantheon Building
by Nadine S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2008 11:52:48

This is one of those products that basically reminds you of stuff you already know, but forget to remember when you need it. Pretty straightforward, well-written product. For the price, definitely worth picking up if you intend to do any sort of god creation for your game.

Cosmology of Karma
by Nadine S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2008 11:46:36

This product is gorgeous. Just beautiful use of photos for illustration, it’s definitely the prettiest product I’ve bought so far! Of course, printing this was a bear, and almost destroyed my printer. A text only file or grayscale file would be nice. This PDF is also extremely well written, and presents some unique ideas for using the planes. As you read through it, you get this slight Elder Gods/Lovecraftian vibe from the writer. This PDF presents humans as either a food source for planar beings, lab rats, or minor nuisances for the most part, and it rethinks the motivations of different planar beings like demons (daemons), devils, gods, angels, and an assortment of others. I particularly liked the presentation of The Flux, which is where the four elemental planes of earth, air, fire, and water exist. Provides just enough information for GMs to customize the planar beings for their own games regardless of what type of game you might happen to be running at the time.

Elemental Metals
by Nadine S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/22/2008 10:48:00

Sweet little product that really just is bursting with inspiration for GMs. Why make up new exotic metals when the real world already has so many? There is so much here beyond the traditional copper, silver, gold, platinum metals. Well written and thought out to be fully functional regardless of your game style or setting.

Elemental Gemstones
by CJ W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/15/2008 15:01:55

Another handy reference book from Bards & Sages. As with Elemental Metals, gemstone's elemental alignments, availability of the gemstone and some information (such as how the stone may usually be used as a luck charm for example) is provided as well. Very handy for item creation or for adding a little "extra" information/color/etc. as you like. Definitely a time-saver for the GM who needs detail but who hasn't got the time to do the research on their own. Each pictured gem is shown in one of a variety of formats (either cut and set in jewelry, tumbled/polished or raw). Ideally I would have liked to have seen two pictures per gem, one each as raw and finished. If you liked Elemental Metals, I'm certain you will enjoy this too.

Elemental Metals
by CJ W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/15/2008 14:24:21

A handy little reference book. Short entries about a variety of metals keep information easy to get at (such as elements associated with the metal and how readily available the metal is). Probably most useful for creating unique items for your games (they can't all be silver relics, can they?), but could add some flavor when your group's mage(s) cast various "detect [...]" spells on things (now instead of saying, "You can tell it's a brass figure worked by the hands of a dwarf" you can say "It's a brass figure worked by the hands of dwarf and resonating with a strong aura of fire.").

Elemental Gemstones
by Dale M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/01/2008 17:29:56

Elemental Gemstones details seventy gems and crystals for magic item creation in the Karma Roleplaying System. Each has a bit of fluff attached to help GMs determine the appropriate use. Also listed is the element the gem is aligned to (earth, fire, air, and so on) as well as its availability (common, difficult, and rare). That is the whole of the crunch presented in this product. The introduction of the book gives the reader a sense of basics of the Karma magic system.


With such limited amount of crunch as well as it being presented in general terms, it is easy to port these over to other role playing games. D20 gamers that desire an alternate item creation system that does not involve spending experience can instead seek out rare and precious stones to make their items. This book works perfectly with Exalted as written. Elements Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Wood are all represented. Metal and Lightning are also present if your game involves Autocathon. Modern games that involve magic, such as Mage and Shadowrun, can use these to help draw depth to the game and explain why certain gems are required and not others. Players could the ones to discover why a certain corporation’s secret hording of sapphires has nothing to do with their monetary value. Even in Scifi games Star Wars, these gems have a place. With Old Republic Jedi searching out the gems that best suits their individual personalities, this reference can provide a quick guide as to which gems would be appropriate and how difficult they are to acquire.

Neiyar: The Ruins of Dazu
by Craig S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/08/2008 08:26:25

Though it says it is for levels 8th to 12th, I don't know if I would use this with 8th or 9th level PCs unless those PCs are really twinked out. Most of the encounters are easily scaleable, but the final encounter might be a bit too much for 8th or 9th level PCs. Otherwise, a solid adventure with three different story hooks depending on the party composition.
