d30 Sandbox Companion
Publisher: New Big Dragon Games Unlimited
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]

An impressive collection of inventive ideas for random generation, presented with an old-school look and charm. Just flipping through the book filled me with ideas for my next campaign ("Cult generator? Hmmm, maybe I should add a cult for them to encounter..."). and the adventure generators are fantastic for impromptu games. The premise may seem gimmicky but the execution isn't, and the author's true passion for OSR gaming really shows. I don't often give five stars for a product, but this one has definitely earned them.

Ambient Environments - At the Mountains of Madness
Publisher: Ambient Environments
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 06/07/2014 23:22:57
The Ambient Environments soundscapes are quality recordings that combine sound and music into an audio atmosphere for your storytelling games. Each track is ten minutes long, with no fade in/out at the start or end, making them perfect for continuous looping. While reviewing this series, I played each track in the background and often didn't notice when it had started over. The sound levels are
compressed very well, which means that there will be very few distracting volume changes when you play these during a session. And at $1.99, the price is very reasonable.

The At the Mountains of Madness soundscape includes arctic wind, along with some spooky ambient music (some of it kind of backwards sounding, for greater effect). A very good mix of sound effects and evocative music. All of their soundscapes are very good, but this one actually made me start thinking about running something that I could use it in.

The Foreign Marketplace soundscape includes a cacophany of shouting and chattering voices, coins jingling, animal noises (chickens, ducks, donkeys, and goats), blacksmithy sounds, shuffling feet, and much more. It's a great audio backdrop for most any marketplace scenario.

Land of the Giants soundscape includes wind, native drums and other percussion, and some ambient background music. This track could be used for any outdoor scene that has grown tense and suspenseful (with or without the presence of giants).

The Hidden features suspenseful ambient music, (thrumming bass, swelling strings, distant and echo-ey piano melodies) for those times when the party is on the verge of making a terrible discovery. It sounds like it comes straight from the soundtrack of a Hollywood thriller. Moss would definitely think this one is "ruddy mysterious."

The Dungeon Crawling soundscape features ambient music, a torch cracking and whooshing as it is moved around, water dripping, rats squeaking, distant growls and other "possible monster" noises. The "torch whooshes" can get a bit repetitive and distracting in this one, but otherwise the track works very well.

Like the first Arctic Excursion soundscape, the second includes blustery wind, cracking ice, as well as loud splashes of ice falling into water. This track seems to have some suspenseful background music to it, but it is very subtle and non-distracting. I paired this track into a playlist with the first Arctic Excursion track, and they matched seamlessly.

Horrors From Beyond
Publisher: Project Zero Games
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 02/19/2014 09:16:50
An excellent set that takes advantage of Acrobat's layer function the way that more of these products should. The artwork is excellent, instructions are clear, and there is very good attention to detail. The columns, for example, have score guides on the edges but not on the pieces, to add to their realism. Three base surfaces are available for each figure. The grass tile can be customized with 18 different features and with or without gridlines, allowing for a wide variety of tiles from one page (alone worth the price of this product, in my opinion). All pages have minimal notes/logos/etc. to conserve ink. My only suggestion would be to use a layer to enable removing these before printing, to conserve ink even further. Overall an excellent product, and well worth the price.

KoDT: Bundle of Trouble vol. 11
Publisher: Kenzer & Company
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 01/10/2014 08:01:13
Kenzer continues to deliver with these faithfully reproduced Bundle of Trouble digital collections. I am very happy to see these classic comics make it to digital format, and couldn't be more pleased with the way they've been produced. All of the pages crisp, clear, and easy to read. They're bookmarked and hyperlinked, which makes them easy to browse on both the computer and portable devices (I read them on my Nook Tablet with the EZPDF app.) Each of the collections feature all of the strips and columns from three issues of the comic series, plus bonus strips never seen before.

For those familiar with the KoDT comics, these are a great way to revisit them - and for those who've never seen them before, this is the perfect way to get started. This particular collection features the beginning of the Hawg Waller's story arc, one of my favorites of the series.

Crazy 8s Rules-Lite Engine
Publisher: Aegis Studios
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 08/17/2013 23:16:31
A simple, bare-bones rules-lite system using a pair of d8s. The full document runs 8 pages (I'm guessing to keep with the theme), but once you take away the cover, intro, OGL, and cheesecake artwork, there are maybe 2.5 pages of content here. Other than some bonus stats for gear and weapons, there is no genre or setting material provided.

The system is nothing spectacular or revolutionary, but for a lite system, it seems to work well enough. Is it worth a buck? Probably, if you're looking for something different, and have a preference for very rules-lite systems.

This collection features B.A.'s many attempts to patch his ruined HackMaster campaign when the gang discovers a valuable cache of antique furniture and books, which is one of the best story arcs the series has ever seen, in my opinion.
