Hellbrood: Countdown to Invasion
Publisher: Daring Entertainment

Hellbrood: Countdown to Invasion is an short introductory campaign leading into the main Hellbrood campaign detailed in a future book. The first part of the book has a brief history of the campaign world and how the heroes fit in it. Followed by some new setting rules, races, edges, hindrances, 6 adventures and then finally the NPCs necessary to complete the story arc.

The writer's intention is to make the PCs part of a comic book crossover event like "Blackest Night" or "Crisis of Infinite Earths" and they accomplish a lot toward that goal. The adventures are straight forward, but tied to the setting and future events. I assume a lot of the pay off will happen in the next book. Playing this without going into the main Hellbrood campaign I don't think would work, unless you like your superhero tales to end on a downer.

My only real criticism is the length of the book, its too short. I would have liked to have seen more of the world built before it is torn down. Makes for more of a sense of loss.

Guardian Universe II: Player's Handbook
Publisher: Dilly Green Bean Games

To be perfectly frank, I wanted to like this game more than I did. Character creation is mostly random with the possibility of negative results for your character. As an example the very first character I made broke even on the table. I found the main stats section confusing, but that could be just me. And the "taking your character school" section struck me as kind of pointless. On page 9 there is a note on the best way to build a character. I feel that it would be better for someone creating a new character if the book had been laid out in that order. It could also use an overview of character creation at the very beginning, instead of jumping right in to it.

Overall it is a nice try, but not a game I can recommend without reservations. In my opinion the book needs to be reorganized and some sections need a bit more clarification.

David, Thank you for purchasing the game. We included at the back of the GM book a new table for rolling your Main Stats, just to give you heads up.
Bedlam City
Publisher: Plain Brown Wrapper Games

Bedlam City is a grim and gritty setting with a black sense of humor. The book itself is rather large, coming in at 400 pages thoroughly detailing the important parts of the City’s history, neighborhoods, government, culture, crime, villains, and lots more. There is no “Bedlam universe” to work around making it very easy to drop into an existing campaign or easily made to be the focus of one. The few resident heroes are minor and easily dropped.

Liked: The author's warped sense of humor and Bedlam’s heavy flavor makes it feel more like a reoccurring NPC than a campaign setting. Plus its got Hitler's Brain!

Disliked: If you own the adventure “Bedlam in Bedlam” you’ll recognize several sections since they were copied and pasted from it. I was disappointed about this and would have liked a more in-depth review of the various neighborhoods. Some of the villains could have been cut to add this.

Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to inflicting this city on my players.
