A Wushu Guide to Wyrd-Fu
Publisher: Bayn.org
by jeff m. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/03/2006 00:00:00
Sure Wyrd-Fy isn't the best guide for Wushu, but it could be useful if you run a magical capaign, just like in Withcraft or Mage The Awekening, bhudism Wuxia or just Heroic Fantasy.

Thanks to dan bayn ^_^ spellcasters could be as strong as warriors for more fun.



LIKED: narrative truth is very suitable for magic

DISLIKED: more exemple like psychic or super heroes stuff would be more wellcome
a litle too short

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Dojos And Dragons
Publisher: Misfit Studios
by jeff m. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/10/2005 00:00:00
it s been a while i wrote this comment, and after a second, a third and a fourth reading about this book, i decided to update, cause in the end i was too much disapointed

When i took a first look to the book, i was surprised how DND look like Tri Stat Dx in first cause you have 5 dies level from D4 to D20 almost like Tri Stat. Second things, many advantage, skills and other stuff you could find them in OVA or BESM. I guess that DND writers was inspired by this two book or just a kinda lazy.

So DND are just a copycat ? Not really, cause the whole book are centering on combat, and you could asume many forms just like Songoku in DBZ, each forms increase your power and you could go until godlike power form, and is it really useful ?

About fight, if you re looking for versatile combat rules, you ll find only barehands and melee combat, yeah, you have also three firearms and no rule to create big guns.

I also read how to run an "anime" dnd campaign, and i only find you could run Naruto - Hokuto No Ken - DBZ campaign. In fact only brawling capaigns.

No DND isn't an ANIME RPG, just an RPG only about shonen manga and fighting.

so if you re looking for a versatile anime rpg : play besm, if you re looking for a simple and funny anime rpg : play OVA. If you re only (and only) looking for non-stop action, bare hands fighting anime rpg and destroy a whole planet with your ultimate attack in your ultimate form : yeah DND could be a good choice, but be warned, they re is too much lack of rules about many stuffs and you ll find easily the limits of this core rules.



LIKED: the transformation rules, and sorry it just the good point of this book.

DISLIKED: such awful illistrations
once again a ''cat girl'' in anime rpg book
just actions and fightings setting
no real rules about driving, mecha and magic (just brawling i m telling you)

QUALITY: Disappointing

VALUE: Disappointed

by jeff m. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/18/2005 00:00:00
it s not really a wushu supplement and it could fit to any other system. with many advices and conspiracies. Yeah all characters in the fringe could be insane, but what if it was true and their trues goals are protect or open the eyes of anyone... In the end it will the GM who decide :).

LIKED: - many conspiracies that you could mix up.
- the fun to play the insanes in the Terry Gillian kind a way such as Brazil or Fisher King

DISLIKED: - no stats, just many exemple of play.
- once again, just one image from the french wushu edition.
- hard to set for french audience

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Date Added: 07/19/2004 13:01:12
Does BESM need an adaptation for D20 system ? i don't think so. But the level system may be cool to play if wanna run a Gamestation RPG campaign such as Final Fantasy or Xenogears.
