Space Stops: Spungo's Bar

Spungo's Bar is just the place to pick up a contract or let your adventurers unwind in their favorite space opera. Fish Wife games has done an excellent job of creating the sort of vile space bar, grill , and establishment that can deal out all kinds of adventure links, NPC contacts, and encounters to get your PC's into the seedy and dangerous underside of the galactic culture and society. This is a place that passes among the loathsome and jetsam of the universe. Dave Woodrum does an excellent job of creating the sort of establishment that you'll need a shower after visiting and that's a good thing. Spungo's is just the type of place that might appear in a cheesy late night sci fi cult movie from the 70's thru 90's on VHS or cable. That being said this is a place with plenty of room for DYI game mastering and tinkering in the background. At three dollars this is really an establishment that's a steal. Nicely written and easily thrown into any number of old school science fiction games. Going into Spungo's is going to have many PC's wanting to rethink their lives after one or two patron's use some old school mind tricks on them. That being said the product is well rounded and balanced for encounters. There's room here for expansion or for clear cutting DM customization. But there's enough meat on the bones of the product to flesh out NPC's, background of the location and more adventure location ideas as you see fit. Spungo's Bar is going to making appearances in my games coming up.

Nicely done! Overall rating of 5 for utility, design, and cost. Would give it a 6 for creativity if it were possible to do so. Nice generic fit for any space-age genre game.

You are not buying this product for the art or design (I read one section as "Not Able Encounters" before I realized the font style made it look like two words instead of one), although the map is more than usable. You ARE buying Spungo's Bar because it is 15 pages chock full of details about a seedy space opera bar with no system mechanics to slow it down. It easily tweaks into a seedy establishment anytime or anywhere (just replace the holographic dancers with real ones). Not only does it give great read-aloud flavor text describing the various areas of the bar, but there are vivid descriptions of the individual patrons, food offered, specialty drinks, and 4 adventure hooks that, again, are not limited to space opera settings. I would have liked Spungo's map on its own page for print-and-play readiness, but any GM needing it on a traditional 1" square map can easily transfer it to an 11 x 16 grid, and there is nothing on the page with the map that keeps it from being a player handout.
