(G-Core) Guardian Universe X: The Eternal Church of Life (Modern FASERIP)
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/10/2018 16:08:19

A lot of the recent G-Core releases have featured 'small' groups. Those that are a threat, but can be defeated with enough effort. The Eternal Church of Life may just defy that. The Church is one of the Guardian Universe's most widespread factions and one of my favorites.

This product has a myriad of details about the Eternal Church of Life. It fleshes out the Anti-Prime, it's leader and an immensly powerful being in his own right. It also talks about the heirarchy of the Church and how it handles different circumstances. There are stats for all sorts of Chruch member, ranging from simple cannon-fodder types through incredibly potent titans that crush the Anti-Prime's enemies.

Most importantly, there is an excellent backstory about the Church and its leader. Jay fills in the spaces hinted at before while creating a great faction. The Ethernal Church of life can fill all sorts of niches in a campain from a simple threat to an overwhelming power that can destroy the universe.

Well worth the price.

(G-Core) Commander Megaton and her Awesome Commandos
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/04/2018 12:03:45

As with the rest of the G-Core line, I enjoyed Commander Megaton. Jay takes a bit of a departure from the 'typical' G-Core model with this one. Instead of providing a lot of background material and a few characters, this one is all about the characters. There is only a short blurb about what's happining with the team at the beginning but that doesn't prevent it from being an intersting offering.

The product revolves around Commander Megaton (a mutant hedgehog with a penchant for violence) and her team of superhumans. They range from aliens that can calculate any possiblity to a being that can absorb any living creatire. The characters presented are intersting to read and there are plenty of fun things going on.

The main reason for the 4-star rating over a 5 is the lack of interaction between team members. What I mean is that since there is little overall background there isn't a lot of feel for how well the team operates as a whole. There are some connections made, but not enough for my tastes. It is mentioned that Jay plans to use the team as the basis for an upcoming session at a gaming convention. I imagine this is part of it, but it still feels a bit lacking in this regard.

Overall though, I think it's a fun product. The characters are intersting and could be used for most any type of supers campaign power level.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe X
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/13/2017 18:45:28

In this G-Core supplement, Jay ups the danger and intrique in his setting. The overall timeline has moved up several years and lots of things hae changed. A new president, laws and organizations have come to light while old groups struggle to ke it together. This is a great place for people new to the Guardian Universe setting to get started. While other products would be helpful, there is enough info provided to jump right in. As always the characters are easily converted to other systems and there are tons of ideas to mine.

The main reason I like this so much is that it is a love letter to things like 'Days of Future Past', the Ellis storylines in 'Stormwatch' and many other distopian supers comics. His writing has tightened up and his art is more dynamic than I've seen before.

(G-Core) Monsters Twilight 8
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/14/2017 22:05:28

Every year, around this time Jay releases a new edition of Monsters Twilight. These annual releases showcase a bit of the Guardian Universe that stands out for it's 'scare factor'. No supers world is complete without at least a touch of horror. Monsters Twilight 8 does a good job of adding it this year.

The premise is simple. An ancient artifact has been awakened and it's ability to raise the dead has become something of a... problem. Long dead Heroes have returned but are tainted by evil power.

As I said, it's a simple premise, but a fun one. Jay takes some standard faire and roughs it up a bit. The resurected Heroes are recognizable, yet have their own unique feel. Even the source of the trouble is interesting enough to inspire different campaigns that continue from here.

(G-Core) Stairs of the Immortal: Homegrown Heroes (Modern FASERIP)
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/27/2017 09:35:23

Homegrown Heroes is designed to help Players detail out brand new characters without becoming bogged down in unnecessary work. The premise is to create the G-Core fantasy equivalent of "0-Level" characters. As is always the case with G-Core based products it is easy to use and contains a great deal of information in a few pages.

Homegrown Heroes details the character's humble beginnings with a series of random-roll tables. These table present everything from the type of family the character was born into, to their personal status at the beginning of the campaign. It also presents a number of Metier's, or professions, that the character can start with. Each Metier's gives the character their base skills, starting equipment, and a special trait.

The only downside is that there isn't a random table for generating the characters metier. This is a minor quibble really. If possible I would give Homegrown Heroes a 4.5 rather than the 4 stars I rated it as.

All in all a great addition to anyones Stairs of the Immortal, or other fantasy based, game.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: Balston Group Module ROGUES
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/02/2017 15:20:30

Balston Group Module ROGUES is a direct follow up to Jay's last release. In the Baslton Group Module we learned more about the inner working of the multinational organization. We learned the whose-who of the company heirachy. We also know that for all it's faults, the Balston Group is still dedicated to the greater good.

That's where the ROGUES come in. They are the shadow to the Balston Groups relative light. They are what happens when intellect is left alone to create as it will. ROGUES details several groups that hold to these tennents. They range from fully converted cybernetic Yakuza to Russian weapons systems. There are also examples of what happens with the ultra-intelligent begin dabbling in gene-splicing.

All in all I give Balston Group Module ROGUES a 4-star review. More of a 4.5 to be honest.. The only downside I see to it is it needs the previous module for background information. This isn't 100% necessary, but more of a personal, completionist point of view.

Overall another quality G-Core product.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: Balston Group Module
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/27/2017 21:43:53

This product is brimming with background information. This product is different than nearly all other G-Core products. Most G-Core releases highlight the superheroes and villains of the Guardian Universe. The Baslton Group Module takes an existing company and expands it's info ten-fold.

The Balston Group is a massive, multi-national conglomerate. It fits a necessary role in any supers type of game, that of the Evil Corporation. But it does more than simply flesh out a bit of info and provide readers with a character or two. This product shows where Balston Group shines... in its multitude of subsidiaries. Each branch of the Balston Group is detailed. They are all fleshed out to provide readers with a great feel of everything the Balston Group can do, and what its up to.

Each subsidiary has a brief section covering what it 'does'. Some are geared toward healing the sick, some toward saving the Earth and some toward space exploration. The company is listed with a brief write-up of its backgrounds, it's key members and anything it is specifically known for. The star of this is the slew of important people that are featured. They don't wear capes but are still quite important. Each company has 1 (sometimes more) key employee that is given a great deal of attention. This information is great for GM's who want a better feel for the direction that subsidiary is going and for those that just need inspiriation.

The Balston Group Module is great. It does something that most other games gloss over and does it in an easy to digest way.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: SpyCorps
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/23/2017 19:29:44

I like my supers with an Iron Age feel. Where things aren't black or white and every action has a reaction. SpyCorps is a great addition to anyone that likes spies, sneaking around, assassinations and world-class treachery. There is a detailed write-up of the SpyCorps and its important staff members. There are several potent NPC's that would make excellent foils for a group of do-gooders.

Additionally there is a new character type: the Hellbrand. This allows Players to whip up characters like Spawn to rip into villains... or the good-guys.

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: REVIVAL: Deep Space
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/28/2016 13:00:33

There have been a multitude of G-Core products over the years. Most deal with what we would call low-to-mid level characters, others cover the high end of the spectrum. Deep Space goes even further. This new product for G-Core covers the most powerful beings in the Guardian Universe setting. Deep Space covers a myriad of different topics starting with the War of the Gods and what has happend until now. There are a number of powerful groups that have formed in the setting due to the actions of people far in the past. This butterfly effect has changed the very nature of the Guardian Universe to what it is today.

There are a variety of beings detailed here. Everything from the soldiers of different cosmic level groups to beings powerful enough to wipe out planets. Jay does an excellent job of creating a number of creatures that fill the different 'feels' that can be present in any Cosmic campaign. There are gods and mysterious creatures that defy the laws of existance.

Deep Space is compatible with games based off the vernable FASERIP system. There may be a bit of conversion necessary but those are minor.

All in all this is a great product. Not only for G-Core fans, but for people looking for ideas for any type of Cosmic Level based game.

(G-Core) G-Core PRIME Campaign Resource
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/18/2016 11:23:20

It's no secret I love super-hero games and G-Core. One thing though that I have always felt it, and many other games lacked was a good system for campaign advancement. I don't mean just guidelines for attribute or power growth. I mean things that simulate what is happening in the world thanks to the hero's actions.

This product covers both. It contains a slew of tables to roll on that help flesh out all sorts of details about the world around the characters. It contains everything from the reactions of people rescued to how to gain new powers in a G-Core. The best thing is that the majority of tables provided can be used for other super-hero games besides G-Core.

This is one of G-Cores best resources hands down and will help enhance any similar game!

(G-Core) Guardian Universe: Revival: Monsters Twilight 6
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/12/2015 11:40:40

Jay Libby has been creating Halloween based G-Core expansions since the games initial release. This years product concentrates on the inhuman experiments of the Balston Group, a major player in the G-Core Revival Universe. Each of the villains introduced here are designed to fill monstrous roles within the organization and in a larger setting as well.

There are write-up for everything from a nigh-unstoppable clone to a device designed to boost and enslave another beings abilities. All the characters presented here are recognizable due to their human foibles, but just evil enough to be fun to use.

My only complaint is the lack of a prologue detailing the Balston Group. I know that there is already a G-Core release about them, but I think it would have been nice to have a brief over-view of them and their actions. This would be helpful for those who do not have the Groups release and could also be used to add a bit more information about their current actions.
