Cartomancy 12: The Deep Dark
Publisher: Stygian Fox
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/26/2016 05:19:04

A detailed map of stars surrounding the Sol sector.
Similar to the Mars map, it has 3 files: TIF, JPG, and PDF.


It details used planets, jump points, and planets containing sentient species.


Depending on your computer system, redrawing the map when you increase/decrease detail, or move the map takes a few seconds.


At £0.76p/$1.00 it's worth a look (it might give you some ideas, etc).

Cartomancy 14: Red Eden
Publisher: Stygian Fox
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/26/2016 05:11:11

You get 3 files with the download: TIF, JPG, and PDF files.
Each give a detailed section of Mars (a long valley/trench-like sector).
Each part of this sector is claimed by various countries fairly similar to todays countries (Chinese Heartland Republic, Brazil, Japan, United States Reformation, European Union, Russian Federation, etc).


Very tempted to use this for my own RPG system.
The PDF file seems slightly slow loading (background, then planet, then the valley section), but it is rather detailed.
At £0.76p/$1.00 it's worth the purchase.


NOTE: it does not detail vevery part of Mars, just the valley section.

Brimstone Open Beta - v0.3
Publisher: Golden Griffon Games
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/11/2016 07:52:13

At 71 pages, 68 are the content.


Artwork: Very good, quite evocative. I hope they keep to it.


The only error I coudl find, was an axe overlaid one some text (top left) on page 19.
The characters have the standard STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, CHA.


No character sheet (but that shouldn't pose a problem), any OSR sheet should suffice.


It's nicely laid out.
And since it's free, you'd be daft not to get it.


Very much worth a look.

Swords and Savagery Monsters
Publisher: New Realms Publishing
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/29/2016 05:54:02

At 23 pages, 22 are the content.
There is no content list of monsters at the front, or index at the back (as some books do).
This is basically a bestiary for Swords & Savagery.


The usual B&W art seen throughout the other books.


Therea are 5 pages of monster abilities.


Some monsters have 'varieties' (different types of Goblins & Orcs for example): pretty good.


No dark Elves (oh well). Something to create at some time.


At £2.72/£3.71 it's pretty good (and needed to complete the collection).

Swords and Savagery Expansion Pack 1
Publisher: New Realms Publishing
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/29/2016 05:44:09

At 8 pages, 7 are the content.
It contains a collection of rule additions, clarifications and optional rules; and a new class (Elf Scout), which is susceptible to chaos.
Artwork: 1 piece, seen in another pdf of the game.
There's an action tabe & encumbrance table as well.
A pretty good addition to clarify and add to the rules.


66 pence/90 cents, worth getting to complete the rulebook.

Swords and Savagery
Publisher: New Realms Publishing
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/29/2016 05:35:09

At 30 pages, 29 are the content.


Dice needed: D4, D6, D8, D10, D12.


The abilities are: Might, Mind, Body, Spirit, Inititative, Movement.
You roll 1d6 for each of the 6 abilities above (there are also ability modifiers as well).
Your class will will also supply modifiers.
Then you choose your skills and Body points.


Combat: 1d6 plus Initiative modifier.
After you've determined your Proficiency, Ability, Action Level, Difficulty Level, and then determine success.
Success points: Subtract Target Number from dice roll equals number of success points.
For most actions, you either succeed or fail. Although, sometimes the GM might want to know how well the player succeeds, and usues the success points to determine how well the result was, and describes it to the player.


Artwork: B&W, same style as Ogres & Underworlds (some artwork is the same).
Some typos. One was p14: arrows: 10Gp & bolts: 15Gp. It gives the cost, but not the quantity you get.


At £2.72/$3.71, it's fairly good; but worth getting the Monsters book, and the Expansion 1 book as well to 'complete' it.

Rats in the Walls
Publisher: North Wind Adventures
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/07/2016 04:13:25

Out of 14 pages, 10 and a quarter are the content.


An Inn/tavern keeper requestng help from the players, as he has a serious rat problem.
Sounds simple enough; not really.
Quite a good scenario for beginning players.
It appears as a fairly standard 'dungeon crawl', with rats as the main antagonist, and a suprise one at the end.


There are also some secret doors, and the loot (which should keep the players well equipped for a while).


There's also an ending note about a possible were creature - interesting.


The only thing I found that stopped this scenario from getting a 5/5, is on page 7.
It shows a map of the dock where the inn/tavern is, and 4 very small floor maps all on one page.
I had to zoom the page to 150% to see the maps.
These could have been put on a separate page or two to make them bigger, giving a much better view of them.

Edge of Space: Science Fiction Roleplaying
Publisher: Chubby Monster Games
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/06/2016 06:11:51

At 8 pages, 7 are the content. It has mutiple formats (which is useful).
Edge of Space (EoS) is a simple 2d6 + skills + target number (TN) system. Reminds me of the Star Trek & Lord of the Rings RPGs by Decipher.
The background is an Aliens theme.
It has 6 professions:
Grunt, Support, Scientist, Officer, Company Man, Merc.


Maybe the odd error (P2: Grunt 1: Rifle, 2: Rifle)? Maybe Rifle then Pistol?
When hit, the health states are: Healthy, Shaken, Wounded, Mortal, Dead.


Yes, you can get other RPG's which are more detailed, bigger page count, etc; some are even free (Age of Shadows, Labyrinth Lord, etc, to name a few).
An experienced role player can house rule this system (given enough time), to add other details; it should be too difficult.


At 69 pence ($1), it's OK.
Worth a try.

The Battle of Kaylen
Publisher: Felbrigg Herriot
by Stephen Y. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 06/06/2016 05:48:57

At 8 pages, 7 are the content.
The is a supplement for the Edge of Space RPG (an easy system to learn; even for beginners).
It's a well thought out supplement, reminding me of Aliens & Starship Troopers theme (which is not a bad thing).
It also has sample characters to use.


And considering it's free; you'd be daft not to pick it up.

Pretty good since it's free as well.

Quite a nifty app for generating various cities.
It has various 'headings': City, Tavern, Feature Namer, Crowd, Rumour, Merchant, Market Map, and About.
Just press the Generate button for each heading, and you should have enough details to generate your city.
If you're a lilttle low on ideas, this should help.
