The One Ring - The Darkening of Mirkwood
Publisher: Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd.

Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7 have done it again. A great book with plenty of adventure ideas - one per year for thirty years in the Middle-earth setting. In addition, events happening in Rhovanion during that time (2947 to 2977 TA).

The production quality is what we've come to expect from this line, very high. The writing and rules presented evoke Tolkien's world. The artwork, stunning.

A welcome addition to The One Ring game.

Stargate SG-1: First Steps
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
by Ian K. [Verified Purchaser]

This review applies to the recently updated version of the PDF.

The First Steps book contains a wealth of original material for the SG-1 game, ten new worlds to explore each described in detail. There are new alien and near-human races, new skills and new feats to go with these worlds.

The PDF is a scanned image of the book, rather than a publication created from the original typesetting material. The image format results in a large file size.

The tracking lines, evident in the previous version available here, have now gone. The image quality is much better than the previous version as well. The missing pages, pages 77 and 80, have made it in to the new scan.

A much better version of the PDF making this a good purchase for the SG-1 game.

Stargate SG-1: Roleplaying Game
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group

Having enjoyed the TV series, I was excited when I noticed this product on the shelves of DriveThruRPG and was quick to purchase. I'm not disappointed by the content. The d20 implementation is well done, with the Wounds/Vitality game mechanic used for combat. There is also a wealth of background material for the SG-1 setting. The review of the game residing at RPGnet is excellent and covers the game content well: http://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/10/10809.phtml

Specifically to this PDF version, I'm afraid it's not to the quality I've come to expect from DriveThruRPG. The PDF is a scanned image rather than a publication created from the original typesetting material. The image format results in a large file size, a whopping 88Mb. There are clearly visible track marks from the scanner down the pages. These are especially noticeable on pages including images where the darker background highlights the lines. The image quality is also not as crisp as a PDF published from the original material, some of the text being slightly out of focus and fuzzy. Again, this is more noticeable where there is a background to the text. Several pages are not quite square to the page sides, where the page has slipped as it has gone through the scanner. This is especially evident on pages 436 and 448 of the PDF.

All in all, an excellent d20 product let down by quality issues in the PDF version.
