The Fiendish Primer
Publisher: J. J. Sloane
by Stephen N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 01/23/2012 22:01:19
I picked up the Fiendish Primer because I have two young daughters (ages 5 & 7) and I'm frequently looking for fresh and fun ways to get them interested in the RPG hobby, mythology, and all my other favorite hobbies so that we can enjoy them together. The Fiendish Primer is a perfect book to share with the kids, and has become part of our nightly bed-time reading. The illustrations by J.J. Sloan are colorful and playful and certainly not too scary for children. As it is an A-Z you get a nice variety of creatures including some of the AD&D classics like Rust Monster and Xorn. As we go through the creatures I often stop to give more details about any particular critter and offer short tales of adventure. The kids all have their favorite monsters and its been a fun new way to get them connected to the hobby. Highly recommended.

DCC RPG Free RPG Day Adventure Starter
Publisher: Goodman Games
by Stephen N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/21/2011 18:12:03
I was able to pick this up at Free RPG day, and have picked up the PDF as well. It is meant to be played with the Goodman Games upcoming Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG game - the beta rules for which are now available.

The product itself contains 2 short adventures, one for 0-level play, and another for 5th level play. The B&W artwork is consistent with the tone of that in the DCC RPG beta rules which itself hearkens back to a 1ED D&D thematic feel. The two included maps are quite evocative and should be shared with others at the table once the adventure concludes so all can share.

As the previous reviewer mentioned, much of the fun of DCC system is the 0-level character funnel where player's should create 2-4 PCs each as the mortality rate is expected to be high. The 0-level adventure is a mixture of dangerous trap settings along with a few monsters. Both adventurers will require some clever party thinking to conclude to avoid the TPK.

Two fun little adventure and nice introduction to the DCC system.

Encounter at Fairvale 4E
Publisher: Blackbyrne Publishing
by Stephen N. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 07/10/2011 13:29:04
I was setting up to play Blackbyrne's BP1 adventure (The Hidden Current) and used this as its intended prequel module. This could easily be dropped into any early campaign as its a rather universal theme (the PCs start by browsing around a local market, when a bad guy unleashes monster into the crowd. Chaos and mayhem ensues.) Battlemap scale images are provided and some NPC backgrounds are included if the DM does want to use as a transition module. My PCs definitely enjoyed.
