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.

List Compilation
Publisher: Lee's Lists
by William W. [Featured Reviewer]
Date Added: 02/05/2013 13:34:48
This is a massive 357 page compilation of ”Lee’s Lists” that have been previously published individually, and together forms an excellent inspirational tool for GMs that are looking for plot and campaign ideas.

The lists come in a number of varieties – names (Japanese, Chinese Surnames, Roman, Internet Handles, Norse Weapon Names, etc.), historical and cultural color (Medieval Foods, Strange Pets, Fantasy Slurs, Medicinal Herbs and Their Uses, etc.), plot and story elements and events (Baffling Riddles, Campaign Inspiring Movies, Tavern Names, Nasty Surprises for a Starship Crew, Adventuring Motivations, Village Adventure Ideas, etc.), objects (Items Found in a Kitchen, Steampunk Inventions, Fine Art Items, etc.), character traits and types (Style Quirks, Fantasy NPCs, Fantasy Jerks, Memorable Villain Traits, etc.), and locations (Eerie Landmarks, Fantasy Villages, Genuine Imaginary Cities, etc.) Most lists are comprised of 100 entries, but some fall over or under that number (19th Century Occupations, for example, has 2452 unique entries!).

A handful of the lists are silly, and of very limited use (101 Dalmatians, 50 Shades of Gray, Excuses Not to Run Your Game This Week), but the majority of them are much more inspiring. Some, such as “10,000 Fantasy Quests,” consist of a set of tables of items to choose from (or roll on) to piece together a desired result. This is a very mixed bag of material, if I haven’t quite made that clear enough by now.

Caveats: There is no index, table of contents, or any sort of noticeable organization. Looking for material for a specific genre may involve browsing the entire PDF, and using the lists on the fly will likely involve doing a keyword search. The best bet might be to print out the lists you like best and keep them in a binder for reference.

At $30, the PDF is a bit on the pricey side, but there is a massive amount of information gathered here. While some of the lists are comprised of simple one or two word entries, some (such as 100 Swords and 25 Nasty Chemicals), have extensive history and/or background included. GMs who are looking for something to inspire fresh ideas for their new or ongoing campaigns will find a goldmine here that is well worth the cover price.

Thanks for the review William! One note, the PDF is bookmarked, so you won't be entirely lost when trying to hunt down a list. The concern is noted though, and I'll see about getting a table of contents in there and updated.
Moleskin Maps 03
Publisher: Chubby Monster Games

Date Added: 01/30/2013 19:40:25
A brilliant idea for an encounter when the GM wants to add something extra to a campaign, or even for those times when gamers drop over and want to play something on the spot. Each location includes a GM sheet with spaces to fill in details – Background, Key Locations, Encounters, and more, and thumbnails of the maps are reproduced on the in the corner for making notations. This is a fantastic idea for busy GMs who don’t have the time to build an entire encounter scenario for the upcoming game, or need just a bit of an inspiration boost.

The inclusion of maps in larger format for use in virtual table tops is a great bonus, and something that I hope will become more common with all RPG products in the future.
