Lightspeed: Cargo Manifest
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by William N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/31/2006 00:00:00
For absosmurfly nothing, you get 33 spaceships to help flesh out your Lightspeed campaign.

These ships range from small runabouts to large capitol ships of the line. Each entry comes complete with stats and a CGI illustration of the ship in question.

Yet another quality product for the Lightspeed fan to use thanks to Mr. Conkle and associate (whose name escapes me right at the moment, I'm afraid to say).


LIKED: 1. Its free!
2. A variety of ships to use and base your own designs off of.
3. Its free!

DISLIKED: While not a knock in any stretch of the imagination, I'd be happy to see ships from the Russian navy at some point in the future (to help round out the whole shebang).

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

Silver Age Sentinels Standard Tri-Stat Edition
Publisher: White Wolf
by Wiliam N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/12/2005 08:57:30
What you get:

Black and white interior (color was for the Deluxe version only), which looks good for the most part, but I just don't see the "flavor" stuff in the Campaign section very well. These cut-outs of newspaper clippings, old documents and so on don't look right for me. These things printed out okay, but the text is still fuzzy and a wee bit hard on the eyes.

But, you do get a lot for you money here, and it is all choice stuff.

The biggest gripe I have is that this work should have been indexed / bookmarked before letting it out because at over 300 pages and multiple chapters, there is a lot you have to paw through unless you have the table of contents or index physically printed out for reference.

Enjoy!

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic)
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by William N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/04/2005 00:00:00
Here is the last incarnation of the Basic D&D game which started many a wee lad (and lass) on the road to ruin. While considered quaint by today's standards, it's simplicity is it's strength. Do more (gaming) with less (rules), I always say and with this book, you can do just that.

LIKED: You get a complete game in one book. Plus, things don't get too much easier (in terms of rpg complexity) than good ol' fashioned Basic D&D.

DISLIKED: The scan itself is a bit on the "dark" side and the clarity of the text is a little off.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Worlds of the Realm
Publisher: Holistic Design
by Wiliam N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/22/2004 08:37:47
After you've purchased the "essential" books for the game (for me, that means rulebook, GM's screen), I would suggest taking a good, long look at this item.

As described, it gives you info on all of the Houses' planetary holdings; the planet's history, current situation, exports, etc. You also get names of notable personsages which populate their respective planets. All in all, one gets a pretty darn good amount of stuff by which to create games by.

Oh, and you also get listings of Imperial holdings as well as d20 info for animals, classes, and so on.

The down side to this work, if you could call it that, is that it does not cover the non House and Imperial planets (so perhaps the title of the book is a bit off), but I suppose Holistic couldn't just give out everything at one time.

My opinion: A pretty good buy.

Lightspeed
Publisher: Avalon Game Company
by William N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/22/2004 00:00:00
All hyperbole aside (and I could lay it on thick about this game, mister), you will not find a better bang-for-your-buck kind of sci-fi game than you will with Mr. Conkle's Lightspeed.

The catch-all kind of universe you get with this game gives you the opportunity to play the type of game you wish and also gives you the ability to add things that you want in a rpg. Couple this facet with a rules system that trades on its customization ability and you have a very, very vibrant game indeed.

The quality of the work itself is also top-notch; the art is consistant, and the editing seems to be very good (I haven't found any errors, FWIW).

This is a good game that offers much for little.

B4 The Lost City (Basic)
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
by William N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2003 00:00:00
A pretty good scan of a old module; the only really "terrible" images are the front and back of the module itself (which show the typical bends, wears and tears that are typical of this sort of thing).

You do have the usual dungeon crawl type of action (ie. strange monster placement, lots of gold and jewels, etc.), but the overall story is something a player could expand upon and work into a larger campaign or upgrade to their gaming system of choice.

Big Robots, Cool Starships
Publisher: White Wolf
by William N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/26/2003 00:00:00
A great addition for a good game at a very, very low price...what more could anyone want?

The .pdf quality is exceptional, with each and every page produced in a crisp manner (pictures too). Also, the turn around time between ordering and getting the goods is very short.
