Dragon Brigade: The Affair of the Orb Adventure
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Walter H. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/14/2015 21:33:47
I acquired the Opening Salvo book a long time ago, back well before I picked up Firefly. I was looking for a system that was different from the games like Pathfinder and Savage Worlds I was playing. I fell in love with the system even though I never managed to get a game going other than a one off. For a long time, I was hoping that MWP would come out with the Dragon Brigade RPG. Hopefully this is the next step.

This uses a similar system to Firefly, Leverage, and Smallville. It is a narrative system so it's not crunchy like Pathfinder and games like that. Instead, it's more like everyone is an actor. Because of the loose restrictions, anything is possible. I will be running a group shortly using these rules. I can tell you that it blends the old Cortex Classic System and FATE.

If you've picked up the Opening Salvo, a bit has changed. Unlike in the Opening Salvo, MWP has explained the Character Creation System very well. It doesn't take long to create a character and you can have your players in the action very quickly.

I don't remember Flourish Dice being in Opening Salvo, but they are a welcome addition to the system. If you are familiar with Firefly, these are the Banked Dice.

This book is enough information to get started. It has a little bit of background but could easily expand on it. I won't go into the adventure so I won't spoil it for someone, but I will say it's pretty good.

High-Space Interactive Planetary Log

I bought this for two reasons:

I am running a High Space campaign
I am running an Edge of the Empire campaign

I wanted something to make good quality "reports" on planets they discover or go to. This does that very well.

Cortex Classic System Role Playing Game
Publisher: Margaret Weis Productions
by Walt H. [Verified Purchaser]

Excellent core system especially for modern campaigns. I've tried the d20 Modern system, and think it seems a little clunky to me. I like that skill rolls don't get ridiculous like they do in some of the d20 systems. I also like the fact that there are no "levels" or "classes" and is more generic in that sense. There's no reason that you can't build packages to simulate these however.

I don't care for the core magic/psi system involved, but with the Traits/Skills system included, I've already started working on a Skill based magic/psi system for my fantasy campaign.

Overall, I give this game a very HIGH mark and recommend it to anyone wanting to try a simple to play generic system.

Swashbuckling Adventures
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group

This book is an excellent source for Swashbuckling adventures although if you're a fan of the original Roll & Keep system, you may be a little disappointed. Personally, I prefer the R&K over d20 because it emphasizes Role-Playing more so than Roll-Playing.

The ONE major thing I do dislike about this book is that it's scanned, and not an original Electronic version. Overall however, it's still pretty good.

7th Sea: Players' Guide
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group

This game is very good; it emphasizes role-playing over dice, although dice are used fairly often. If you prefer pure hack and slash, stay away. Unlike D&D, particularly the d20 version, this game offers players many more chances to "live" their character. While the characters tend to be more powerful than the NPCs (and they should be), the game still presents many chances for a character's downfall.

I have the paper copies of this and the Game Master's books, but wanted these for my laptop. You can't go wrong with this game.
