Interesting Interactions: Zombies
Publisher: Dark Quest Games
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/01/2009 14:38:11
This is not an earth shattering product, it will not change your life or the way you game. It is however just a touch over a buck and has some very amusing ways to add some spice to a potentially very tired and played out monster.

Shambles
Publisher: A Terrible Idea
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/01/2009 14:32:07
To begin with, I did the layout and art direction on this book so I DO have a bias...

However I did so because I love the hell out of this game. I am jealous of it, I fiercely wish I wrote it, it's brilliant.

Cyberpunk v.3
Publisher: R. Talsorian Games Inc.
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 04/02/2009 12:59:46
I love Cyberpunk and there is a lot in this book that make it's purchase well worth it.

Unfortunately I have to give this a fair to middlin' rating as it's a very inconsistently put together book that has more value as an update tool for 2020 than a game in it's own right. It appears to have had large sections of the 2020 text copied and pasted into it including references to no longer existing rules, in addition some paragraphs mysteriously end mid sentence and there seems to be at least one entire section of rules missing from the PDF.

I think that the use of action figures to illustrate the book was a noble try, but not one that the fans hoped to see from R-Talsorian games. It's fairly ignorable but has caused players to not take the game as seriously as they could otherwise. Re-using 2020 art would have been less jarring I think. Other than that the book is beautifully laid out and has a lot of good ideas (and a few iffy ones) to bring your Cyberpunk campaign up to date.

Risk: Over the Trenches
Publisher: Guild of Blades
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/21/2006 00:00:00
I ordered this entirely by mistake (at 3am all buttons look alike) but hey! It's not bad!

I was never a huge fan of risk, but as far as a light evening of fun goes you could do far far worse than this.

Autopsy Issue 1
Publisher: Postmortem Studios
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/21/2005 00:00:00
A very well written collection of articals on a subject that often gets glossed over or outright ignored. An interesting perspective on our hobby.

LIKED: Well written, to the point, punches are not being pulled.

DISLIKED: Where is issue 2?

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied

The drugs issue will come along when I have time. Between other projects I potter about putting together articles and pieces for Autopsy, so its not a regular output :)
Masterwork Characters: Secrets of the Squirrel
Publisher: Clockwork Golem Workshop
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/20/2005 00:00:00
This is a fun read and contains some frigteningly useable ideas. Let your players use this at your own risk, your game may just disintegrate into giggling.

LIKED: Well written, to the point, very amusing.

DISLIKED: I would have liked slightly higher quality art (the actual art was fine, but pretty low res) to shine up the piece a bit, but that's just being picky :)

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

I will probably never use this product but I am very happy I got it anyway, the idea is exellent and the execution spot on, a very amusing read.

LIKED: A great idea well done.

DISLIKED: I would maybe have made the spells even more petty and bitter, but that's years of retail speaking :)

Unlikely Heroes: The Scholar
Publisher: Plot Device
by Will W. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/13/2004 00:00:00
A great idea, I feel like one of d20s biggest weaknesses is the rabid early power progression, there is little time to watch your character grow, the jump from beginner to hero is a little too abrupt. The idea of starting as an every day guy/gal and having adventuring thrust upon you in some way is a great one!

LIKED: Well written and presented. And I liked the little extra given to people who picked up the whole set, a good idea!

DISLIKED: I think too much effort was made to balance these classes against existing classes which seems to miss the point a bit. I would actually have preferred weaker classes that you could use to transition into the main classes.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Glad you liked it. For me part of the point was to bring the NPC classes in line with the base ones on a comparison of abilities, but to change the focus away from combat prowess. So the effort at balance was directed squarely at this concept. If it missed, my bad! :) Warm regards, Evan
