[d20 Modern] Forbidden Kingdoms: Modern
by Robert P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/28/2006 00:00:00
Love this setting! Offers three campaign models for play, PLUS is now in the D20 Modern rules! Like chocolate and peanut butter. I wasn't crazy about this product originally being in the 3.0 rules, but I loved the setting. Now if there were only a conversion for the fantastic sequel for FK, "Paris-the Spectral City".....

The D20 Modern rules just work better for anything not in a fantasy setting. You can play any pulp character in this setting. There is enough background in the three campaign models to go anywhere, do anything, and get that feeling of awe and wonder that the pulp era (about from the Wild West era to the Depression) evoked.


LIKED: see above

DISLIKED: nothing to really complain about.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

[d20 Modern] Forbidden Kingdoms: Modern
by darren E. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/10/2006 00:00:00
Do not buy this product by itself. It is only 104 pages long and it is just a piece of the Master codex that is offered in the bundle. I fell for it thinking it was something New or different because it says MODERN on the cover. It is just the first few chapters of the babbage edition.


LIKED: it was not too big of a loss of money

DISLIKED: It is not stand alone and is only a small piece of the puzzle. I don't know why it was listed as a separate item.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Disappointed

The two books aren't supposed to be used together. Please look over the character classes and you'll notice that they're for use with the d20 Modern rules, instead of the stand-alone version of the "normal" version of FK.
[Spycraft] Strike Force 7
by Jim F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/30/2006 00:00:00
Not a bad like sourcebook.. As the only offical PDF "Powered by Spycraft" product I've ever seen I was fairly impressed. It could have used some more background info, but what the heck. It did come out just as Spycraft 2.0 was released, so it needs all the help it can get.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

[3.5/OGL] The Shaman
by Gin S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/30/2006 00:00:00
I've seen shaman-based products come and go since 2nd Edition AD&D. Since I actually know a little about real-life shamanism, I'm confident in pronouncing this book as the best game treatment of the shaman yet. The shaman class detailed here is also well-balanced in terms of game power.

It's also worth noting that using this product as the basis of the shaman in your own world doesn't negate the usefulness of shaman classes published in other supplements. Feats are an obvious reason, as this book doesn't include any -- but for this price you can't expect all the trimmings. The DM could also adapt the powers of other shaman classes in various ways.


LIKED: Pretty much everything. Some would say the setting-specific info was unneeded and might prefer that it be replaced by feats, but I think including it was a good idea. A DM can adapt it to his or her own world and the shaman does need a bit of background mythology or the class has no basis.

DISLIKED: Nothing.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume One
by Keith T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/15/2006 00:00:00
The art (all b&w) ranges from so-so to pretty good, none of it up to the standards of the cover. Some of the pieces would benefit from resizing, so all in all the art is worthwhile for it's intended purpose.


LIKED: If you like cat-people, get this one, there are some pretty good ones in here. For 23 pictures, there's a decent variety of subjects.

DISLIKED: Some of the art is not good enough to be in this (not to my taste, if you prefer), and with five artists doing 23 pictures there is a great inconsistency of style.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume Two
by Keith T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/15/2006 00:00:00
The art (all b&w) ranges from so-so to pretty good, none of it up to the standards of the cover. A bit better quality-wise than volume one, but a lot of the images are bust-type portraits. I don't have much use for those, but they'd be good for say a character sheet illustration. I'd prefer to see this sort of collection done as a single-artist work since I prefer books that maintain the same art style throughout.


LIKED: Nothing especially stands out - I might have given it four stars if there were more full-body and/or scene illustrations.

DISLIKED: Four artists doing 23 images still doesn't give you many in a consistent style.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume Six
by Keith T. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/15/2006 00:00:00
The art (all b&w) ranges from so-so to quite good. For 22 (not 23 - there is a duplicate) images, there is quite a lot of subjects. Overall this is better than either volume one or volume two.


LIKED: That it included a few landscapes, not required in this sort of thing but nice to get.

DISLIKED: Again, no consistency of style. Four artists (though as one is a Studios, possibly more) doing 22 pictures means only a few by each artist. There is a duplicate image (pages 4 and 15).

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume Three
by Tim G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/28/2006 00:00:00
Pieces by 6 artists in a variety of styles, from shaded pencil and wash to comic-like ink lines. These are mostly scenes: cultists around the Eiffel tower, Nazis with a mole machine, weird science montages, undersea exploration... They're solidly pulp-based, but there's a fair amount of scope for using them in other modern genres.

They're presented in a pdf book, so you have to extract them with Acrobat's snapshot - quality won't be high enough for large size in a print publication.


LIKED: At the sale price of $1.99, exceptional value for modern-imaginative projects.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume Five
by Tim G. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/28/2006 00:00:00
Art pieces by 8 different artists with quite different styles. Presented as a pdf book so you have to use Acrobat's snapshot function to get the images out - this wouldn't give sufficient quality to make the images large in a print version.

These are pulp pictures, mostly of NPCs who might be encountered: scholars, fashionable ladies, Indiana Jones types... There's a bit of scope for adaptation to other modern-ish genres. Quality is mostly pretty good, though solid rather than spectacular.


LIKED: At the reduced price of $1.99 even one picture usable for my purposes would be a good deal!

DISLIKED: Two of the pictures are identical except for a slight change of clothing.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Very Satisfied

OtherWorldly Art Portfolio Volume One
by JD S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/24/2006 00:00:00
A junk collection-blurry, badly-drawn pictures, some of which appear to be simple tracngs. Most are either dubs from old monster manuals, or clip-art wannabes. Not even worth the $2 sale price.

These are third-grade drawings. No depth, no finish, just unskilled sketches. I seriously doubt that they were produced by published artists, and a Google search fails to support the publisher's claim.




QUALITY: Poor

VALUE: Ripped Off

I'm sorry you weren't happy with your purchase. All I can say is that the art contained is from some of the most successful artists in the industry and all of it is original.
[d20 Modern] Forbidden Kingdoms: Modern
by Joseph Q. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/16/2006 00:00:00
Well, if you bought the Babbage edition here and know your way around the D20 Modern rules, this may not be the best purchase. I bought the non-d20 version and had read it through before this became available; I'd have to say this saves some time on conversion and adaption and is a good purchase only if you fall into the catagory mentioned in the opening sentence.


LIKED: Well written conversion of the previous rules.

DISLIKED: Redundant if you already have the previous edition and know d20 Modern well enough to do the work yourself.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

[d20 Modern] Forbidden Kingdoms: Modern
by Bjorn A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/15/2006 00:00:00
Translates the 8 Basic Classes from Forbidden Kingdoms into Advanced Classes for the d20 Modern rules.


LIKED: Class features were explained better, and presented in a more streamlined fashion.

DISLIKED: In addition to a translation of the Psychic to the d20 Modern rules set, it would also have been nice to see conversions of the Prestige Classes. Some class abilities are still not explained.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied
