A good product that can be adapted to other systems but BASH! works just fine.

A supplement and campaign background for BASH fantasy. Set in a swashbuckling age, it plays to the strengths of the BASH system to perfection, right down to fencing schools with different styles.
Contains a sample adventure (rather deadly looking) and lots more suggestions about naval life.


LIKED: Everything

DISLIKED: There's nothing to dislike

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

Island of the Forgotten Tomb for BASH - Fantasy.

This is a mini-setting and an adventure for the BASH - Fantasy game. I was hesitant to buy this on it's own, since I am not into swashbuskling as a general rule, but since this was bundled with BASH-Fantasy edition and was a bargain I thought I'd give it a try.

I am happy I did. This is a great supplement for BASH - Fantasy. The mini-setting works well in this game and the adventure is fun in a pulp action hero kind of way. Reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean and the old Errol Flynn movies. I am assuming that is what they were trying to go for and they hit the nail on the head. Congrats!


LIKED: The fun pulp action feel.

DISLIKED: If i had to say anything it would be the lack of a table of contents, but not worth losing a point for it.

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

A slick and to-the-point campaign adventure with world background modelling a fantasy realm with suspiciously historic-seafaring age overtones. If you want to run a BASH! Fantasy game set on the high seas of a world suspiciously similar too, but otherwise very much unlike our own during the 16th-17th century, then this is a good start. Like BASH! Fantasy, the art is decent but skimpy. The maps are good, and I loved the cover on this one. In the end, the real weakness I saw was that I could have used about 30-40 more pages on the setting, as it held my interest and left me wanting more material and adventures. It has a good introductory adventure, and a nice section of genre-specific rules and monsters, but could use much more, I felt, in terms of setting and scenarios.


LIKED: Good, to-the-point campaign setting, easy for novice and expert GMs to tinker with and run

DISLIKED: Sparse on art (but nice cover)
Could use more material/adventures (hint!)

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

Nicholas, believe me, I hear you on the extra pages for the setting. This was only an introduction to En Garde- and we plan on putting out another product in this line (with much more detail on the Caramaks & Akirima) this summer!

Again a fast and easy system to use. Just started a new campaign and getting a feel for the rules and their game effect. Very similar to another product of the same genre but holds it own with the differing fencing schools and rules governing their use.


LIKED: Ease of play and fast outcomes

DISLIKED: nothing

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

One Word ... WOW!
I'm a fan of the BASH System as it is, but this little download, helped make me a believer. The setting is a fun one for both fantasy and swashbuckling adventure. The extras bonus rules add real flavor to an already tasty system.

All I can say is if you like the BASH system (and if you try it, you will...) this is a must have!


LIKED: Very presentable, nice artwork... builds a swashbuckling mood.

DISLIKED: .... hhmmmm... nothing!

QUALITY: Excellent

VALUE: Very Satisfied

A nice adventure and expansion for BASH Fantasy, essentially the Swashbuckling Supplement, complete with equipment, swordsman schools, a world based on 17th century Europe, and advanced naval rules. It is EXTREMELY similar to a certain popular swashbuckling RPG, but given how much I love that game, that's no bad thing. Comes in print-friendly and illustrated versions for convenience, which is always a nice thing about BASH products.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Well Paul, I am glad you liked it. Of course, when two games both emulate the same historical period there are bound to be similarities. The next product in this line will focus more on the "New World" however, which many games of that period gloss over. It will be a while before that though. Maybe this Summer!
