Cryptomancer
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Land of NOP LLC
Date Added: 08/31/2016 01:41:14
Cryptomancer This is one of the most kickass settings, and also serves as an excellent introduction to modern information security. It has the most realistic hacking of any RPG ever seen. Even when it comes to standard fantasy stuff, like fighting orcs and gnolls, it throws in twists and makes those enemies feel truly meaningful. However, I'm only giving it 4 stars because of its rules system. The rules are like Old World of Darkness with added complexity, and therefore, will only appeal to people who honestly believe that the Old World of Darkness dice mechanics were great....

HHSOLO 1 - The Hounds of Halthrag Keep

Publisher: The Hapless Henchman

HHSOLO 1 - The Hounds of Halthrag Keep Note: Normally, I wouldn't bother leaving a negative review of a free product, but since there is print version available for a price and a number of gamers who prefer to handle physical product in lieu of PDFs, I felt there was justification for such a course of action. (As one of the reviewers below notes, given the Choose-your-own-Adventure format of the adventure, using the PDF version is somewhat bothersome, which might encourage a potential buyer to pull the trigger on the print version.) I would strongly encourage you to download the PDF for free and look it over before you choose to buy; after all, reviews inevitably reflect the biases and individual quirks of the reviewers, whether good or bad, so it's important to take a look for yourself in order to judge whether or not the reviewers see things the same way you do. So, with that in mind, let me explain why I disliked this adventure so much. First off, as you can quickly surmise for yourself should you download the product...

Ultramodern5 (5th Edition)
by Greg S.
Publisher: Dias Ex Machina Games
Date Added: 08/31/2016 01:15:35
Ultramodern5 (5th Edition) Fantastic company, and entertaining material. My group loves the randomly generated character history and level of depth put into everything. Their CS is top-notch and responded to an error in the book I made them aware of very quickly, producing an updated result. I could have very arbitrarily given this a 5 star rating but that would lead people to believe there is no room for improvement. My only complaint is that while hilarious, the randomly rolled character history has a tendancy to send the PC down a very very dark path :P I might suggest in the future using a consumable resource that lets people alter their random rolls slightly in favor of things that might not break the overall concept....

Fragged Empire - Protagonist Archive 1

Fragged Empire - Protagonist Archive 1 My only complaint is how amazing much of the art is for the majority of the book, but takes a massive dive on some of the Three archtype pages for each race. What happened? This expansion is by and large absolutely amazing, otherwise. It adds so much more life into the game through it's new races and settings.

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #52: Nanotech Undead

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #52: Nanotech Undead Wasteland horrors and zombies are always a favorite but here in Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #52: Nanotech Undead we get a boat load of monster options and weirdness for the Mutant Future rpg. But is the issue worth getting? Yes but there are some interesting give and take things here in the wastelands. My sweet spot for post apocalyptic rpg's has always been Gamma World first & second edition, the games were and are some of my favorite systems & rpg's. They form a good part of my next phase of gaming in my life. The thing about Gamma World was its flexibility, the apocalypse could be anything from a zombie plague to a full blown holocaust of Biblical proportions with little bits of everything in between. Everyone I knew mixed in everything from Logan's Run to Night of the Living Dead. In case you don't know;"Gamma World is a science fantasy role-playing game, originally designed by James M. Ward and Gary Jaquet, and first published by TSR in 1978. It borrowed heavily from Ward'...

Heroic Maps - Geomorphs: Bridges

Publisher: Heroic Maps

Heroic Maps - Geomorphs: Bridges I really like this set, very useful to have some bridges. My only complaint is that there is no large broken bridge in the set. That would have been perfect, but still a great set and very versatile.

Fragged Empire - Protagonist Archive 1 Expands the Fragged Empire sandbox with four more playable races that introduce a great range of character options and more items for the players to spend their down time on. Expanded locations, factions and personalities show strong plot lines and conflict lines that the PC's could engage with, and assist a GM in creating their own view of the Fragged Empire. A very solid addition to the Fragged Empire setting.

Black Crusade: Core Rulebook
by John S.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
Date Added: 08/30/2016 18:12:48
Black Crusade: Core Rulebook The game seems enjoyable from my limited play so far, with evocative character archetypes and options, and an array of advances, mutations and other developments which I can gleefully anticipate. The artwork is lively, high-quality and feels very appropriate to me. I found it fairly easy to create a character who felt different and interesting without being a bizarre departure from the premise, although I must admit I have a lot of exposure to 40K and have played this gameline before, which surely helps. The core mechanics of the game are relatively straightforward and provide a reasonable balance between failure and success - it's a relatively gritty game, so a certain degree of failure is to be expected. This is particularly true of knowledge and technological skills (in the setting ignorance is a prized virtue and the world full of lies and secrets) and of social skills (virtually everyone is morally dubious, self-interested and deeply suspicious of basically everything). W...

Fragged Empire - Protagonist Archive 1 Proof that the *Fragged Empire* universe isn't small, *Fragged Empire - Protagonist Archive 1* delivers a new cast of races each with their own history and culture. This is complimented with extended rules (new keywords, perks, skills, etc.), setting guide revolving around the new races and interactions with the initially playable races, new factions, new locations, new prominent NPCs, and new character & spacecraft lists. Tying it all together are the wonderful short stories and narrative examples. This is a must have for GMs and players alike to dig deeper into the post-post-apocalyptic setting of *Fragged Empire*....

Situations For Tabletop Roleplaying

Situations For Tabletop Roleplaying This and every item like it I've gotten from this genius of a man is worth the tiny bit of invested time to read, and more money than is asked. I got all the "pay what you want" ones for free to try them out, as I'm low on funds right now, but I intend to go back and buy them proper when I have some bills paid off. If I had to value this and his similar books, I'd say $4-5 easy. Not only is the content solid and extremely useful for any roleplaying system, but the way it's presented is cleverly minimalistic and very easy to reference. I absolutely hate reading, but these PDFs are a pleasure to read. Excellent publisher, this good fellow....

D-Percent - 100 Fantasy City Rumors and Mysteries

Publisher: Black Falcon Games LLC
Date Added: 08/30/2016 13:49:58
D-Percent - 100 Fantasy City Rumors and Mysteries This is well-crafted. I was hoping for a list of minor rumors, but these are pretty substantial. More alike adventure hooks, or mysteries that require following-up. And it's not a table of rumors that can be assembled by rolling a d100; it is just 100 "rumors."

101 Hill & Mountain Spells (PFRPG)
by Thilo G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 08/30/2016 12:11:16
101 Hill & Mountain Spells (PFRPG) An Endzeitgeist.com review This collection of spells clocks in at a massive 52 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of advertisement, leaving us with a massive 47 pages of content, so let's take a look! Okay, so, as has become the tradition with these books, we begin with a general introduction before we get the spell-lists; as always in Dave Paul's spell-books, the respective environment has a significant impact on the respective mechanics, potentially changing the effects of the spell in question. In this installment, a leitmotif suffusing the spells would be the hybrid nature of hills, serving as a bridge between the wilderness and the civilized realms; as a whole, this duality and focus on the environment is pronounced. Spell-list-wise, the classic classes, including the APG classes and magus are covered and bloodrager and shaman receive their own spell-lists as well. At least for now, the pdf does not directly provide support for the occult...

Legendary Beginnings: Into the Feyweald (5E) An Endzeitgeist.com review The first of Legendary Games' modules intended for new players clocks in at 38 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of introduction, 1 page advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 28 pages of content, so let's take a look! Before we do, I should not be remiss to mention that this module features a handy "slightly advanced" spellcasting array of options used by some of the creatures herein -the module does sport some discrepancies regarding some spells that are due to the conversion from PFRPG's beginner's box: Bane, for example, is utilized in a version that does not require concentration. While I get why this decision was made, it is something 5e-purists may sneer at as an non-required complication - why not simply grant the creature in question a unique ability? This, however, remains the exception; for the most part, the rules, conforming to...

THE JÖTUNFOLK A Guide to the Jötunfolk of Rhune: Dawn of Twilight

THE JÖTUNFOLK A Guide to the Jötunfolk of Rhune: Dawn of Twilight An Endzeitgeist.com review This racial supplement depicts the Jötunfolk race as employed in the Rhûne campaign setting. It clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/preface, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let's take a look! After the Ragnarök clock began its inexorable countdown to the end of days, the jötunfolk started roaming the lands; discarded and unwanted children of the Thrall Lords, exposed to jötunstones, these children were changed in the womb to be born into the shape of half-giants. Increased fertility of the land was the first sign of the influence of jötunstones- it seemed like a golden age in the waiting - but then the burðr morðvíg began, the birth murders, began and saw women die to the births of their monstrously large offspring, leaving countless fathers widowers. The ostracization and negative take on the jötunfolk has remained to this day, the stones now called dreyurgr, curse stones - and thus the Jötunfolk still roam ...
