100 Customer Types for Spaceport Bars
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/19/2014 18:27:19
100 Customer Types for Spaceport Bars sets out to do one thing and ends up being three products in one. This is another download from Fish Wife Games and again the quality is spot on here. Dave Woodrum provides a varied and interesting list of patrons for that wretch hive of scum and villainy in your local space port or Outer Rim space station. This list can also be used as a quick D100 encounter table as well to really spice games up. The other use for this little list is as a jump point for a group of NPC's right in the middle of an adventure. A few tosses of the dice and wham you've got everything you need to keep your PC's busy for a game dealing with some scum in the center of a bar.
This list is short, sweet, concise, and doesn't spend a ton of time dealing out details. Here the descriptions are brief and varied. The DM can add this list to his or her favorite space opera or science fictional game there's no rule hang ups to get in the way of really going to town with this list. Everything here is geared to get the PC's into interaction with minimum fuss. This is going to happen for under a dollar and this list can be dropped into a game mid stream of an adventure and no one is going to notice at all. The players can deal with the NPC's as they see fit and the same list will give a dozen results per toss to really allow the DM a rapid fire round robin of encounters. This allows an adventure to seem almost like an old school detective novel where the encounters give the skeleton of an urban interstellar Noir back drop adventure. As quick as you please this same formula can whip the PC's into the middle of a planetary tavern with steamy alien political intrigue is the order of the day. The key here is the DM['s imagination and his or her willingness to commit the time and imagination to the backgrounds of those listed here. A clever and well done product which a DM can get a hell of a lot of utility out of for the price of less then a hamburger. High recommended.

Space Stops: Spungo's Bar
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/15/2014 10:30:28
Spungo's Bar is just the place to pick up a contract or let your adventurers unwind in their favorite space opera. Fish Wife games has done an excellent job of creating the sort of vile space bar, grill , and establishment that can deal out all kinds of adventure links, NPC contacts, and encounters to get your PC's into the seedy and dangerous underside of the galactic culture and society. This is a place that passes among the loathsome and jetsam of the universe. Dave Woodrum does an excellent job of creating the sort of establishment that you'll need a shower after visiting and that's a good thing.
Spungo's is just the type of place that might appear in a cheesy late night sci fi cult movie from the 70's thru 90's on VHS or cable. That being said this is a place with plenty of room for DYI game mastering and tinkering in the background. At three dollars this is really an establishment that's a steal. Nicely written and easily thrown into any number of old school science fiction games. Going into Spungo's is going to have many PC's wanting to rethink their lives after one or two patron's use some old school mind tricks on them. That being said the product is well rounded and balanced for encounters. There's room here for expansion or for clear cutting DM customization. But there's enough meat on the bones of the product to flesh out NPC's, background of the location and more adventure location ideas as you see fit. Spungo's Bar is going to making appearances in my games coming up.

100 Starport Scum
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/29/2014 11:56:14
Right so here we are with another random encounters table from the twisted mind of Dave Woodrum. This one is right up the alley of those willing to take their adventurers into that wretched hive of scum and villainy. This is a list perfectly suited to that purpose. This simple and easy little encounter chart has all of the space scum, pirates, whores, smugglers, and jerks for your PC's to tangle with.
This list can be used as an NPC encounter table, a back alley combat encounter table, and a fully blown adventure encounter generator for mid level to higher level NPC sessions during adventures. All this for a dollar or less if this generator is on sale. Grab this one.

100 Space Prisoners: Cell Block 2
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/11/2014 09:55:36
I've been using Fish Wife Games suppliments for years and 100 Space Prisoners: Cell Block 2 is another of those niche products that they specialize in. This is a nice little 2 page pdf that has all kinds of space scum to fill up your space port cells and detention blocks.
This is really a small scale tool kit for the Dm to fill in a game's gaps of what actually goes in detention block zeta and alpha, etc. Often for the price of a 'dollar menu' item, you get a nice little list that can fill out with the toss of some dice a whole plethora of incredible NPC's with some really nasty backgrounds for a whole mini campaign of bounty hunting and take downs. These vile space villains could also fill in niches for alien crime lords and mid level space scum to deal PC's a nasty hand of cards. Some of these back alley criminals could act as bridge gaps for DM's to exploit their past crimes for all kinds of lead in adventures. There's lots of potential with these types of lists from Fish Wife.

Thirty Sider Apocalypse: Urban Encounters
by paul b. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/03/2014 06:37:50
What a gem! I have decided that this module will be included somewhere in my The Morrow Project campaign as if fits well with what I have planned. This module is great for any post-apocalyptic setting where there is still motorvehicles, etc. Get it!

Exiles Of The Wicked Maze
by Stacy S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/19/2014 15:51:33
Be warned: this maze ain't for sissies. It's tough, gritty, and you aren't sure if you're going to make it out alive. But that's the challenge of it. I liked how this is a one-player adventure that is easy to understand but far from simplistic. Fishwife Games continues to impress me with quality products.

100 Places Of Fantasy Geography
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 03/17/2014 08:28:33
It's always a bit tricky to find names for everything when you are mapping out a new corner of your campaign world. In real life, place names grow and develop from all manner of things - visible features, names of local landowners, corruptions of older languages - yet when you are mapping you have to just pull them out of a hat.

So here's a helper - a list of an hundred names for places. You may like them, you may even be amused by working out why the name you have rolled (or picked) is appropriate for the place you have assigned it to...

The good thing is most of them sound reasonably plausible. The downside is that they are listed alphabetically, rather than by the type of place... so if you know you are looking for a name for a stream, you cannot check 'stream names' but have to search for the ones that are... or of course, take any name and decide that it is a stream name rather than the island or jungle name that it's given as.

The best use is that it's a good way to get your own creative juices flowing. Just read it and you'll start coming up with your own variations... get your map out and get busy!

Instant Teams For That Violent Dystopian Age Pro-Sports League
by Sean H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/14/2014 21:43:50
Instant Teams For That Violent Dystopian Age Pro-Sports League, that title is almost longer than the product! It is a list of fifty (American) cities and fifty team names and a table for generating team colors. I would have liked the city list to have been weighted but population so you were more likely to see teams from New York or LA than Waco or Detroit. But other than that complaint, it does what it sets out to do.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

Wasteland Gangs: The Termites
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 01/06/2014 06:09:54
This is a very nice collection of well-developed NPCs, organised as a low-powered but coherent urban/biker gang that might be encountered in a post-apocalyptic township somewhere. (I think my Deadlands: Hell on Earth character would fit in well with them if he ever stops roaming around with his current party...)

There is a whole range of different types here. Many of them could make interesting encounters - or useful contacts - on their own. As a gang, they really shine giving a real impression of a functioning group of people doing their best to survive whatever apocalypse has struck your world... and who will continue to do so irrespective of whether or not the party is around or not - something you always want to achieve in creating a believeable alternater reality.

The details for each member of the gang are copious - appearance, nature, capabilities, what they have with them and what they are likely to be doing. All you need to do is add in any apposite game mechanics, but unless a brawl breaks out or you need them to attempt a task for which the outcome is not certain, you'll barely need any as you really know all you need to know about them from the write-up.

100 Things To See In The Devastated City
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 12/27/2013 09:02:13
You are busy planning your post-apocalyptic game's visit to a shattered city, and no doubt your mind is full of the plot that will play out whilst the party is there... but to create the authentic feeling of an alternate reality, you'll want to add flavour and colour that doesn't have anything to do with the story... and that can be difficult to think up, especially when you are thinking about your plot.

That is where this product fits in. Just roll percentage dice and describe what's there. Local colour adding realism to the scene but quite irrelevant... or are they? Anything from an incidental encounter to a full-blown side adventure - or even something that contributes to your main plotline - can result, and you can of course hide the plot-related events amidst these others...

Maybe there's a young couple selling tie dyed clothing from a prop up booth on the city sidewalk (# 61) or three rastas armed with assault rifles stand guard at the front entrance of an apartment complex (# 91). Is there a story behind them? Do they know where to find whatever it is that the party is after? Or are they just what they appear? Only you know... but it all goes to add to the realism of the scene, making the shared alternate reality come alive for you and your players.

Tallow's Tipsy Tales
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 12/23/2013 11:30:15
Ostensibly penned by a bard noted for his enjoyment of alcoholic beverages, here is a fine collection of carefully-developed drinks to have on hand whenever the party drops into a tavern.

Each drink has not only a name but Talloow's own tasting notes, a detailed description of the drink and how it's made and even notes of its origin. Some have magical or medicinal properties as well. There is a section on likely costs and how drink may be supplied which is straightforward to relate to the game system that you are using.

How about a refreshing glass of Bumblebutton's Berry Barrel Beer - a halfling brew infused with the flavour of summer berries, or if you prefer white wine try some Gelf's Golden-White. (Gelf makes several other drinks as well, if white wine is not to your taste.) There's Raldenshyre, a red wine, or Red Scoundrel - possibly the best known vodka. There are some racial favourites from both elf and dwarf suppliers and plenty more besides.

The aim of these is just to provide some flavour during a tavern visit, but it would not be too hard to write a plot around them!

100 Individuals To Run Into In The Post Apocalypse, Set 1

I am not running a post apocalypse game, but I used some of these characters for our online gaming group. Some of the names gave everyone a good chuckle, and it was still a good fit.

100 Odd Items To Loot Off Of Bodies In A Post Apocalyptic Setting
by andrew l. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/23/2013 12:22:49
Left a review on 100 things to discover on a near future wasteland where I mention this product as well. Both items are great quick references for fast and easy random items for a post apoc style game. Under a dollar in the US for both items, under 50p if your in the UK, absolutely fantastic.

100 Things To Discover And Take In A Near Future Wasteland
by andrew l. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/23/2013 12:20:52
This is a really nice little list of things for any GM running a post apoc game this along with 100 Odd Items to Loot of Bodies can really give a nice varied and not generic load of items that your players can find. Some might only be good for trade, some might have obvious uses, and in any post apoc game you'd be surprised by the uses some players come up with for these items. I highly recommend it abd 100 Odd Items to Loot of Bodies.
