A very interesting take on a little traveled genre in RPGs. While the rules are firmly within the d20 Modern ruleset, there are bit of interesting crunch here and there to make it worthwhile. But where this game shines really is as a guide to the Blaxplotation film genre and history. If you want to run any type of game, regardless of the system, set in the 70’s then this is a good place to start.

Exactly what you need to run a blaxploitation d20 game! We've been playing this one every now and again, and it's a great setting and style for a one-shot, or even a whole campaign. Solid! has all the new classes that you need, plus a bunch of other info, both fluff and crunchy, to allow the GM to jump right into running the game.


LIKED: Everything you need to get started with this genre is included, even background information on the history of blaxploitation films!

DISLIKED: I'm not a big fan of d20, and would like to see this material applied to other systems. But I knew it was d20 when I bought it, and was happy to use the material supplied for that system.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

This claims to be "The D20 Blaxploitation Experience" and it lives up to the promise. There's a lot of helpful information and ideas in here to help a GM wanting to run a blaxploitation inspired game in any ruleset, along with the obligatory D20 crunchy bits in the middle.

The whole book is an entertaining read, and feels like it's been written with a great affection for the source material.

LIKED: The guide to the Blaxploitation genre, that doesn't stop with the seventies but follows the trend to the spate of black gangsta films in the 90s. The author's tendency to slip into jive every now and again makes this a fun read, you dig?

DISLIKED: The obligatory D20 crunchy bits are given names that definitely steer this towards a comedy version of the blaxploitation genre. Take for example, "The Hat of Honkey Protection". Special abilities I can live with but stupidly named "magic items" like this turn me off.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Satisfied
