BASH! Fantasy Edition
Publisher: Basic Action Games
by Guy D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/06/2012 19:22:26
After years of searching and testing I have found this to be the best starting RPG for kids. Curiously this is what it was designed for. Kids needs to be able to read and do basic arithmetic. After that the rules are easy to follow, characters are quick to build. My 7yo and 9yo are totally into this game.

It would also work for adults and experienced RPGers.

(Adventure) Into the Chasm
Publisher: Eldersygn Press
by Guy D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2007 18:13:43
This is a short simple adventure which is easy to run and easy to add into an existing campaign.

The game begins with the party coming across a chasm. As they enter and explore it they discover two tribes: bugbears and wildelves. There are a couple of NPCs to understand the politics of the place and then one final encounter with a monster.

Its very good for the price.

A Player's Guide to Talislanta (Talislanta 5th edition)
Publisher: Morrigan Press
by Guy D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2007 18:10:26
I love Talislanta and have played almost every edition. The world is vast and complex. Some may say too complex and the assortment of races seems unending.
In 5th edition, the common races are in the players guide while the less common ones are in the GM's guide so a first time player doesn't get too much of a head ache.

What's new in 5th edition? Not much. Most of the rules are the same, but character creation has evolved. The templates used in previous editions have been replaced by paths so more flexibility is available in character creation.

The system is simple and in a good way. There has been no attempt made to keep different races and paths balanced. This is deliberate. It is acceptable and it is just part of talislanta. Combats are fast and bloody especially since you can't gain hit points after starting.

I do have a few dislikes: A lot of copy and paste from previous editions has left a few rules ambiguous. There is a mix of old and new art and with it a mix of quality that leaves a less than consistant feel. There are also a few gaps in the rules. The line "Ten years and still no elves" could have been replaced with "ten years and still no falling rules"

You have to be ready to improvise with Talislanta, but you will have fun doing it and it makes a great change from whatever you have been playing. Any system that survives twenty years is worth a look.

Ironstorm Mountain
Publisher: 12 to Midnight
by Guy D. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2007 17:51:47
I found this good enough to actually run and use as it is written. Most gaming suppliments I read get used as a source of ideas only, but this one was complete in its own right. The background is thorough and detailed and the current layout of Ironstorm is something that a GM can work with.

The location is set in an old dwarven mountain where the dwarves have long since perished. New, less social inhabitants now dwell there. In some ways it is like exploring Moria, but in many ways it is better. There are options for low level characters, mid level characters and high level characters which makes it a flexible setting that can be used more than once. For instance, it is designed so that players enter the mountain from the top, but I am running it with them entering from the bottom. What this means is that it is easy to introduce the place and you don't have to force an adventure hook.

I will seriously look at purchasing other products in this range.
