xxxWar of the Dead: Chapter Four (Subscription)xxx

Although the entire campaign is great, and a fantastically written adventure that I enjoy running (and my players enjoy playing) more than anything we have done to date... It looses 1 star for the amount of typos, misspellings, wrong words used, and total lack of proper editing and grammar. This is however easily over looked by a well prepared GM. Chapters 1-3 are wonderful in content and style... Chapter 4 however looses another star from me for 2 reasons, #1 is easily over looked and ignored: The new cover. With the other 3 chapters having the same cover with different colors, chapter 4 is a fully graphical cover and now looks out of place with the other 3. This, of course, is just coverings and not really important. The second reason this looses a star for me is far more important, to me anyway: The interior of the book is in Black & White/Gray Scale. Where the other 3 chapters were in minimal color, they were in color. Now not only does it look even more out of place with the new cover, but the sidebars appear as black areas on my iPad2 in iBook and are totally unreadable there. That was the whole point to me buying the iPad2 in the first place: So I didn't have to print up all these things and didn't have to try and find room at the gaming table for a laptop. So now I STILL have to spend even more cash on something else so I can read the sidebars. Either A) Buy a new app that will read the files properly (Then spend all the time moving all the other books over to the new app, and I have a ton of books on there) or B) Spend the time and money getting these printed up.

Over all, bad move Daring Entertainment. New cover I can live with, typos, misspellings, bad grammar, incorrect words, All of this I can live with. But B&W PDFs that I can not properly read on my iPad2 anymore? I dislike that more than words can say. The complete change of style is just a bad move for those of us who are more ascetically minded.

Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG

Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG, is an awesome book and game. The system rules are simple, easy and fast to learn. It is quite fun to play and to run games in this setting. Who hasn't pretended to be a pirate as a kid, at one time or another? Well here you go, now you can do it as an adult without people looking at you funny! Ok, so they will still look at you a little funny, but it is hard not to when you yell out "ARGH! Avast ye matey! Answer true or I send ye to Davy Jones Locker!" LOL But it is definitively worth the price of the book.

Zombie Pirates Plus [BUNDLE]

I am not much for writing reviews, as I never read many myself preferring instead to make up my own mind. I have read many a review in days gone past, some bad and some good. The good ones got me to buy what, in my opinion, were horrid things that I didn't like at all, or didn't understand in the slightest. Bad ones caused me to not take a second look at, what I would usually later find out, were great and wonderful things. Of course, that was not always the case, but it was the usual and more common case. So I never bothered to write many either. As a result, I never quite learned really how to write a decent review, good or bad.

But in this case I feel I must make sure people know a small fact about this bundled set.

Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG, is an awesome book and game. The system rules are simple, easy and fast to learn. It is quite fun to play and to run games in this setting.

Ok, so they will still look at you a little funny, but it is hard not to when you yell out "ARGH! Avast ye matey! Answer true or I send ye to Davy Jones Locker!" LOL But it is definitively worth the price of the book outside this Bundle.

Zombie Pirates? Collectors Edition or Regular? Not off this site. Or any other that delivers you a activation code. The codes won't work. The DRM servers are gone and you won't be able to register the game to play it. I got this line in a message to the developers: "I'm afraid the development team for Dust Devil is all gone." Now they also said they are going to work with DTRPG to get my money back. So good there, but it took over a month to get a reply from them. If you bought this and are 'waiting for the DRM servers to go back up' don't. The DRM servers won't be back apparently. How's the game? Beats me. I played the demo and it seemed good, pretty good in fact for a top down shooter style game. I am glad I will get my money back, but an very disappointed and a bit angry that I can't have the game I wanted. I want the game, not my money back. But if I can't have one, I'll take the other. From everything I saw in the demo, it looked like a great game I would have enjoyed a lot for years to come...
