Classes of Distinction
by Tim N.
Publisher: Dan Coleman Productions
Date Added: 02/09/2016 11:57:02
Classes of Distinction Making additional Class Archetypes is not an easy job, but many seem to want it. You need to be able to identify an iconic niche, a new functional mechanical role, and a simple way of describing it all. I can't speak for all the classes, but I will talk to the one's I've played so far. I am not evaluating them on a power-gaming max damage per round, but instead if they expand the options and flavor of the class in a way that is roughly balanced with the other options the class has. If a player in my game wanted any of these classes, I would not have a problem allowing it. Bard : College of the Muse : In short, it is a bard that gives a more powerful Bardic Inspiration that can be used on his or herself, multiple allies, and even helps to ensure that the minimum bonus is still useful. The tradeoff is that he does not have the wide applications of the Bardic Inspiration that the other Colleges have. A solid option that can feel slightly underpowered if the players don't make gre...

Bandit's Nest (Level 1 PCs)
by Tim N.
Publisher: Dan Coleman Productions
Date Added: 02/09/2016 11:19:17
Bandit's Nest (Level 1 PCs) Great adventure, and most important, great to DM! Bandit's Nest is exactly what it says on the first page, a DnD 5e adventure to go from 1st to 2nd level. That being said, it is a great introduction to the basic elements of DND for new players, as well as a good way to start an adventure off for old hands. I am a big fan of Dan Coleman's works (found him through Kickstarter) because his adventures are written to be fun for both players as well as DMs alike. There are player-safe maps included in the download, which are a huge time saver. We can go on about those, but onto the adventure first. The adventure itself is very well organized, starting with tips, general background, and the major story beats/ideas of the adventure. It is a small gesture that goes a long way for the DM's planning. Basically, you can read through the adventure 2 times and be pretty well prepped to run it. I reskinned the Kenku as dragon-modified cultists from Horde of the Dragon Queen (thus reworki...

Adventure Pack One Free RPG Adventures
by Michael J.
Publisher: Superior Games Books
Date Added: 02/09/2016 10:26:20
Adventure Pack One Free RPG Adventures It is just too much of a mishmash of various clashing genres. Your fantasy characters are supposed to take aliens, gun toting and car driving attacks etc.without turning a hair. Just a charotic jumble, with nothing resembling a plot.

DW2 Island of Fire Mountain

DW2 Island of Fire Mountain I ran this for some friends a while back, and I don't know if this is somehow a normal thing for Dungeon World or not, but the formatting for this was extremely difficult to understand, and made referencing for information very hard for me to do. The adventure itself has a lot of interesting elements to it, and I liked the ideas presented within. I just wish it had been easier to figure out how to present and how to find the information that was laid within.

The Gem Prison of Zardax
by Bevan A.
Publisher: Zzarchov Kowolski
Date Added: 02/08/2016 16:24:25
The Gem Prison of Zardax I purchased The Gem Prison of Zardax from a recommendation on an excellent puzzle dungeon, and it is billed as such: 'Puzzle adventure'. Overall the premise is interesting, but the puzzle aspect is a bit of a non event. There is but a single way out of the dungeon, and although some of the encounters are interesting, many are lacklustre. Scrap princess has some excellent art (if you are inclined towards that style), and in particular I really liked the mother in room 19- awesome. Only a few of the ideas resonated with me, and nothing significant here to mine for my own game. There are runes in each room that give clues as to the contents of each room, which is cool, but since there are no clues about how to use them or what each stands for, by the time the party has explored most of the rooms will be when they figure out what different aspects stand for, so they are a bit of a non-event. Format and content otherwise all good- 48 pages, great cover art (uncredited?). Overall Firmly aver...

Shadowrun: Shadows in Focus: City by Shadow: San Francisco Metroplex
by David B.
Publisher: Catalyst Game Labs
Date Added: 02/08/2016 16:23:35
Shadowrun: Shadows in Focus: City by Shadow: San Francisco Metroplex I wanted to like this, but I am a native of the SF Bay Area and it is painfully obvious that the writers are not, nor did they bother to look at a map. The other issue is that they specify certain items, and then fail to define them. They also use names that are already defined, and then I can only assume push them past their currently defined boundaries to areas that aren't traditionally included. They don't really add any new gear, since the new pistol is speced in the new hard targets book, unless you want police NPC's for the SFPD. The only good thing is that they brought forward the previous history for the area, however that history was never of decent quality and they could and should have performed cleanup and minor changes and corrections to it to make it actually make more sense. Examples of what I am talking about. - They claim San Francisco has now managed to encompass the entire bay area, yet the only districts they list are the southern half of the bay area. - They t...

Survival of the Fittest (Starting)
by Karl B.
Publisher: Schwalb Entertainment
Date Added: 02/08/2016 14:25:05
Survival of the Fittest (Starting) Great and short introduction to the setting, ran it with a group to test out the system and everything went smoothly. It requires very little prep to play it as well, and we did it with randomly rolled characters. Seems like it's a great way to lead-in to a longer campaign and have the party form organically. My one issue that I had was the road itself and the bandits. I could have dealt with this in a different manner than I did, but I followed exactly what was listed in the book and let the players go exactly with their rolls as they were. That's not bad by any means, but both the players and myself felt that a good portion of content was missed because of it. **(Spoilers follow)** At no point were they lost in the woods as they immediately found the site where the caravan was attacked, killed the bandits guarding the site, and went straight for the bandt camp. With the random rolling for encounters in each hex, they managed to kill all but the bandit leader before making...

CRUSH the REBELLION
by Mark M. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: DDE Adventures
Date Added: 02/08/2016 11:33:52
CRUSH the REBELLION *We will crush the Rebellion in one fell stroke!”* Crush the Rebellion is a structured storytelling game with an emphasis on competitive worldbuilding. What does that mean? It’s an RPG where the players are working against one another to accomplish their own agendas and build and establish the setting. Designed by C. Steven Ross of Triumph & Despair, Fourthcore Team Deathmatch, and DDE Adventures (man, this guy gets around!). The game is a bit of an Apocalypse World hack, but also contains a lot of elements of Night Witches. In the game, each player will take on the role of elite imperial agents working for the Emperor himself. These characters each have specific an secret agendas they must accomplish in order to win the game. There is no single game master. Instead, that role shifts around the table as the game progresses. The game mashes up elements of Star Wars, Dune and Warhammer 40,000 to create a multi-galactic-spanning empire with mystical abilities and dark secret a...

Enchanted Armory: Spectacular Shields (for 5e)
by Martin W.
Publisher: The Le Games
Date Added: 02/08/2016 11:27:26
Enchanted Armory: Spectacular Shields (for 5e) Lots of cool ideas in this PDF. The one caveat is that some of the shields are very powerful, especially if you hand out any of the "Legendary" versions to your players. The AC bonuses go from +1 to +3... Given that an unmagical shield is already +2, a +3 magic shield would yield a +5 AC bonus in total. This is almost game breaking given that the AC ranges in 5th edition are much more narrow than prior editions. If you use some of these in your game, consider using only the magical effects or powers and not giving the extra AC buff with them. This advice really applies to any armor, shields or other magic item variants you might find in a supplement like this one. If the item has a cool power, no need to amp it up with an AC buff as well since that can potentially lead to adverse combat imbalances. This book is a solid offering for a couple bucks and can generate additional ideas in the DM's mind....

Ground Set #1 Great product and outstanding support service. I was having issue with the grid settings in Ground Set #1. After written about my issue on this site, LZW contacted me and resolved my issue within hours. The "Grids []" check box should be used to turn on/off grids within the pdf; and not the layers side bar. A happy customer again. Good work! I am using Ground Set #13 Winter Forest and this set to create a 60"x50" map for Frostgrave. Looking forward to use the finished map for future tabletop games. Louis...

East Gate Paper Model

Date Added: 02/08/2016 06:27:49
East Gate Paper Model There are four factors I take into account with a model like this: 1) Scale - I use 20 & 15mm figures so the model has to work on a reduced samller scale - the East Gate worked out nicely. 2) Durable - gaming fixtures and miniatures had better be able to stand up to some abuse - once you get the gate together it stands up well. 3) Construction - I don't mind complex if the result is a solid product - I liked the way the gate came together. 4) Visual - does it look right - yes. Overall the East Gate model produces a good looking solid product....

Sig: The City Between

Publisher: Genesis of Legend Publishing
Date Added: 02/07/2016 23:30:40
Sig: The City Between I'm a Planescape fan from way back, and Sig totally channeled that Planescape feeling for me without being a simple rehash or clone. I love the planar cosmology that Sig presents, and love the city at least as much. The book is colorful, well produced, and easy to digest. I enjoyed the planar races presented in it. The book is for the Spark system (itself Creative Commons licensed), but I think it's easily hackable and adaptable to other games as a concept and setting. Fate and Whitehack both came to mind for me. The next time I dig into running something planar / plane hopping / infiinite city, Sig will be it....

GangBusters-The Blue Book Detective Agency Beginner Game

GangBusters-The Blue Book Detective Agency Beginner Game I just bought and skimmed through this. The artwork is nice, and the PDF looks beautiful. I just started a call of cthulhu game this year, and my players all gravitated toward prohibition type careers. (They manufacture and sell booze. ) I bought this knowing the rules were not complete, but hoped i could get something useful to gansta up my CoC game. I think this will do nicely! I especially like the random tables for rolling up plot lines. I will certainly buy the full rules when they come available. I am interested in the criminal class as PCs. This game looks like a lot of fun. I am going to enjoy reading this 90 page intro to the game tonight! I am already thinking that it would make for good times to start with this gangbusters and work into some Lovecraftian horror later on. If the full rules are still being written by someone who is reading this, please do not feel compelled to stick some lovecraft into the game based on my reason for purchase! I dont need anymor...
