Arcana Rising
Publisher: Bedroom Wall Press
by Naomi B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 11/22/2013 15:05:12
I really like this product. Unlike other Urban Arcana, this is set as magic is released back in to the world. The premise is that scientists have dug down to the lake under Antarctica, thus breaking a magical seal and releasing the magical waters. The reason that there has been no miracles in recent times is that the deities have backed off to maintain a balance but now they can come back - slowly. Spells and such only go to level 6 as people have to relearn how to control their new abilities.

I have only skipped through the text but I like some of the new restrictions. The Forestwalker (aka druid) has abilities that fluctuate with the seasons. Healing strength is doubled in spring while their constitution bonus increases during winter. You could probably add in the Wiccan sabbats to make things even more interesting. Power comes from sacrificing plants. You want to heal a broken leg? Touch a tree and the patient and go for it. It may kill the tree if it is too young (less than 50 years) but, hey, that's what sacrifice is all about.

Some of the items are really funny. You want to summon a Toad Lord? Then pay the price - blood from a lawyer. Good luck with that!

The diagrams are black and white and have the old look of woodcuts. No modern pictures here. Unfortunately not all the monsters in the Monsterpedia are illustrated but there are enough to muddle through.

One surprise was that the character sheet is only one page. It seems to have everything but I haven't tried to use it yet.

There is a large section on settings. At first I didn't see the point of this as the time is Today but then I saw that the presence of magic was being used to convert places to portals. Got a really deep lake? Look out for monsters coming from the Water Plane. A dormant volcano? The Fire Plane is reachable. The same for ancient cities, old graveyards and libraries of old books. That pretty much destroys Rome.

The text is fully bookmarked and easy to read in one column so you don't have to scroll up and down to read a whole page.

I really like this and intend to use it in the future.

13th Age Core Book
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
by Naomi B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/21/2013 23:29:29
This is a little too 4E for my tastes but some of the ideas will work at 3.X. It was interesting that one of the Icons was a Druid but there were no druids in the classes (no monks either). The lack of these two classes that I prefer to play probably figured large in my disappointment and low score.
The game seemed designed for participants in the conflict between the Icons or running errands for them. There was a suggestion that even if PCs were working for themselves, they were somehow under the command of an Icon. A little convoluted for me.
Probably an excellent setting for those wanting themes within themes.

Apocalyptic Tribesmen #1
Publisher: Incarna Comics
by Naomi B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 05/04/2013 19:08:19
Barely an introduction to a new world/Amerind hero in a post apocalyptic world. It takes half the pages in sepia toned story. The rest introduces Darkwulf, some sort of demon warrior in a totally different setting.

High Space Core Rules (v1.0)
Publisher: StoryWeaver

I haven't used this yet but it appears to be fun. I would have liked a character sheet with the download and it seems to need the Savage Worlds core book but what can you expect for this price? A great extension to the original.

Beginning Spellbooks for PFRPG
Publisher: Asparagus Jumpsuit
by Naomi B. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/28/2012 15:07:21
From the description I expected to see a replica of an actual spell book. Instead it was just a single column description for each book mentioned and a spell list. You have to have the original books for the actual spells listed. There is a total of 8 pages, including title page, license page and partial descriptions of upcoming senior spell books (that are almost complete in themselves).

This was advertised as a product for bibliophiles and this bibliophile was disappointed.

This was a lovely picture but I found it difficult to use due to lack of detail. It was more of a photo with labels than an actual map.

100 Divination Methods

Some serious, some fun. I particularly liked the throwing salt in to the air method. Wouldn't work on a sticky wet bar. Or would dissolved salt still count? Decisions, decisions.

Nothing you couldn't get from a book on gems and that would have pictures. Maybe as a starting off point.
