KOBOLD Guide to Game Design, Vol. 3: Tools & Techniques
Publisher: Kobold Press

I couldn't yet read the previous volumes of this great collection, but I sure will after reading this book. Volume III is a hybrid product, half-insider in the game industry, half-game master advices. Wolfgang's chapters are specially interesting: you get practically a full script of how to design and create your product (even the psychological side of the process is discussed). There are no magic formulas here, but the articles really make you stop and ponder about how to implement your ideas (with great tips, even if you're just a GM working your home campaign).

Almost half of the product deals with more traditional themes (encounter, hooks, campaign structure etc), useful for DMs and professionals alike.

Trailblazer

While it suffers more influence from D&D 4E than I would have liked... it is an excellent product, with some outstanding ideas and rules revision (action points use, combat reactions, attack exploits etc.). It is impossible to read it and not finding something of your linking. If you still play D&D 3.0, 3.5, Pathfinder or another fantasy d20 game… grab this product! The price is more than perfect.

Tome of Secrets

The races are incredible boring, mechanically speaking, and repetitive. Most of classes are not properly balanced or just remakes of old ones, without any modification that you couldn’t have done at home. The drawback mechanic gives power freely, as the penalties are ridiculous. The new morale system, while based on the good idea of “abstracting hit points”, is hideously and requires an immense amount of extra bookkeeping. And I can’t even digest the heavy-crunch chase rules… save your money for something more useful, like Trailblazer or Fantasy Craft.

Wow -- well, given the fact that the other reviewers have given us an average of 4 stars, I think we can safely put this into the "your mileage may vary" category. Tell you what, though -- If you send me an email at gms@adamantentertainment.com, Mr. Cardoso, we will happily refund your purchase.
