Rainbow in the Dark Omnibus: The Compete Saga
Publisher: Comfort Love and Adam Withers
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/06/2016 22:00:32

This is an amazing collection. The art is superb, with a beautiful colour pallette. The story seems simple; defeat the villian running the city, but when that goal is achieved within the first part of the story the characters have to deal with the consequences of that victory, such as death. The monsters within are vicious beasts that destroy people. Not everyone you grow attached to will see the conclusion of the story. But that's ok, you see characters grow, and sometimes fail, as they are tested.


Basically everything about this book is great. I cannot recommend this book enough.

Tomes of Alchemy
Publisher: Azukail Games
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/27/2015 11:23:02

A great compilation of in-game books. Listing a little of their backstories, and potential uses for the books. Easy to create hooks and plots with the books as the goal or the books guiding the way to the creation of some lost lore.


On the downside, no index of books listed within nor the ability to create bookmarks in the pdf. It would be nice quickly flip to the desired book without having to memorize this booklet.

Publisher Reply:
I had actually just thought a few weeks back that bookmarks would be really useful. Unfortunately, bookmarks seem to be something that Scribus is poor at, rather like tables. If I can get it to easily add bookmarks, I\'m going to do so. Otherwise, it will probably have to wait until I get InDesign.
100 Things To See In The Devastated City
Publisher: Fishwife Games
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/27/2015 10:30:32

An excellent list to quickly whip up what the PCs encounter in a wasteland city. Quite a few of these are unique and provide a possible hook into some new scenario. With little modification this works well for a modern, fantasy, or even a space setting on some lawless world.

Ps238 #0
Publisher: Do Gooder Press
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 18:40:54

Great Comic, very funny. PS238 is always an amusing look at an aspect of superhero life often over-looked - that of being a child with powers. This 0 issue mostly introduces us to the primary characters, but it's still a fun, good read.

D-Percent - 100 Reactions to Botched Social Interactions
Publisher: Black Falcon Games LLC
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 18:34:01

This list is great for solving those times when a PC horribly fails a social roll. A quick glance at the list and you have the inspiration to continue on. This list, like all D-Percent lists, is simply one page, black & white, without even a simple descriptive sentence to go along with the reaction. But it does serve it's purpose well.

101 City & Place Names
Publisher: Polgarus Games
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 18:27:03

You get what you pay for - and in this case not much. This is just 1 page of words that could be used for locations. There's a note above the list suggesting a way to increase the number of names available is to add extra descriptors like falls, canyon, ridge, city, etc to the end. Another option is to change the end of the name by adding a suffix like ton, ville, etc.


This isn't a bad list, but also one that does not have any additional depth of usage beyond it's listed one.

101 Fantasy Jobs & Professions
Publisher: Ennead Games
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 18:15:59

2 pages of lists for 100 jobs plus one bonus profession. Presentation is very nice; border artwork, and full colour. Topping other similar lists this one actually gives a description / hook for every Job and Profession. Each entry only gets a sentence or two, but that's plenty to go on; the quick suggestion for using the cheese-maker or glass blower could easily fill in when a PC does an unexpected thing.

V20 Anarchs Unbound
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 18:07:04

This is a very well put together book, full of interesting bits, however in 20+ years I have never been part of a group where any info on Anarchs was needed. This book adds more information to a group we need nothing from.

The Jester Dragon's Random Brothel Generator
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/01/2015 17:04:39

Great little generator. 8 pages of content, ranging from brothel name / specialty lists to Signature move and prostitute background generators. A surprising amount of content contained within this little packet. I was expecting just a few words attached to some d100 lists but this goes greatly into detail, telling you practically every detail you could want to know about the brothel. Easy to concoct hooks for places or to insert a brothel some PC has unexpectedly decided to visit.


Definitely a product I would recommend.

Fracture #1
Publisher: Action Lab Entertainment
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/16/2015 20:54:23

Great Comic! Really liked the art and story. The art was easy to follow, not too busy or vague; it evoked a nice classic comic book style. Multiple personalities for the primary character was a nice twist; Virtue always arriving just after Malice has fled; While nothing Malice does can get Virtue to face him. Good drama with the complications from the personal lives of the different men all colliding.


Look forward to reading more of this character.

20 Encounters (The City Watch)
Publisher: DCS
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/15/2014 16:53:06

First, this is a nice little product. You are getting 4 pages of encounters with the City Watch and 8 pages of ads or blank.
The content is very nice. A quick 1-5 initial encounters with the watch. Then 20 much more in depth encounters. To echo an other reviewer, all of these could become plot points
While this is titled Encounters with the City Watch, very easily this could be Encounters with the Police. A few require reworking, but all provide good, interesting brushes with the local law.

High Psionics: Power Displays
Publisher: Dreamscarred Press
by Darryl J. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/06/2014 17:21:24

A good collection of interesting displays. Five different categories - Auditory, Material, Mental, Olfactory, and visual. These give nice flair to the usage of any power, as there's no mechanics these can be use with any system.
