Perdition
by Ahimsa K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/20/2016 12:00:58

I haven't run this yet, and I don't plan to, so perhaps this review isn't of much help.

I've read it pretty much cover-to-cover twice now though and since there aren't any reviews up yet I thought I'd share my impressions.

It's clear a lot of work and thought and talent went into this and it's an amazing product. The art is fantastic, especially the pieces by Matthew Adams. The new races are great. The setting/rules combination works much better than I would have guessed. The greatest thing I think is how well integrated it all is. Everything exists for a purpose, and all the cool stuff ties together really well.

But the reason I won't play is that in a world of simplified games, this one has gone in the opposite direction. There are new attributes two different kinds of hit points, and all the multide of options have multitudes of crunch. For some--many perhaps--this is a feature but for me it feels a lot like doing math. I'd be happy to play this but as a GM (Agonarch) it requires a lot of work. That said, this is probably a "Must-Have" for RPG fans for the sheer wealth of ideas (and again how well they all tie together) as long as they don't mind lots of fiddly bits.

Hack & Slash Blog Compendium II
by Eric F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/30/2015 11:26:05

So Hack and Slash Publishing has for a limited time a complete reworking of their famous Treasure compendium. It contains articles by John Bell, Arnold Kemp and Tom Fitzgerald as well as many others. This is an old school well organized pdf of all things treasure for your old school campaigns and its on 'pay what you want' and my suggestion is to do exactly that. This is solid old school take on treasure. There is a ton of useful and very useful gaming content and anything about treasure is set up throughout the Pdf, you couldn't ask for anything more when it comes to the subject. Throw the guy some cash because basically he's going to be throwing the money straight back into his business to give you even more bang for your old school buck. Everything in all one hundred pages of this book is well done. I can see sitting down and actually using this pdf for a number of games from sword and sorcery campaigns to high fantasy this is a perfect vehicle. Its well done and useful straight across the board for any number of games and retroclone systems.
