We Be Dragons
by Ricky L.
Publisher: Zenith Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 23:53:15
We Be Dragons Zenith Games delivers again with We Be Dragons! I'd give it two thumbs up (or 5/5!) The adventure has a nice hook and it is clean, concise, and fun - everything I want in a one-shot adventure. The author gives a bit of background information and adventure summary at the start - along with a note on how to lower or increase difficulty of the adventure based on the number of your players. The first part of the adventure has several interesting 'thought challenges / social encounters' then kicks it into a gear with a few encounters - the last of which I feel provides a good emotional punch and capstone to the whole thing. The coolest part to me is the Dragon(s) write-up. While there are no "class levels" like some people may expect, we are instead presented with 9 unique dragons each with their own personality and tidbits written up to help you get into their scaly skin. The dragons are all one family, so you can see the dynamic between them in their background write-ups. Each drago...

Basilisk Goggles & Wishing Wells
by Joseph C.
Publisher: Fat Goblin Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 17:33:03
Basilisk Goggles & Wishing Wells (NB: An even longer version of this review originally appeared at http://udan-adan.blogspot.com/2016/06/almost-review-basilisk-
-goggles-and.html) Basilisk Goggles and Wishing Wells is a big book full of new magic items: over 570 of them, apparently. It should be compatible with almost any flavour of OSR D&D, largely because it's pretty light on rules: so light on rules, in fact, that it sometimes don't bother to provide any game mechanics at all for the effects which it describes. The reason it's so light on rules is because most of the items it describes barely interact with the rules system at all: the point of them is not to give you mechanical benefits, but to open up new possibilities. They are the kind of items that a character, faced with what Arnold K. calls 'OSR-style challenges', might find themselves describing as they mutter to themselves: 'You know what would really help, here? A ______ that would let us _________....' How about this for an example: gloves that allow ...

Faith Love any sort of narrative game, and this provides an awesome balance of structure and elements while still being open-ended enough to tell cool stories. Thanks!

Medieval Sailing Ship
by Forest B.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 13:33:05
Medieval Sailing Ship A very attractive build. Definitely will be a surprise to the players when they decide to travel by boat and I roll out this build. No way I could have justiified the expense of a non-paper ship of this size and quality (even if I could find one), but this was quite reasonable (even moreso since I caught a sale).

Ultimate Dice Tower 2
by Forest B.
Publisher: Fat Dragon Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 13:24:34
Ultimate Dice Tower 2 Wish you could dual rate this item. Appearance: 5 of 5 stars Functionality: 2 of 5 stars Call it a 3.5 Star Average The upsides... * Looks beautiful. Excellent texturing and nice work to make the dragon not look 'flat'. My players were impressed * Nowhere near as hard to build as other reviewers say...unless you are only used to cutting straight lines. If curves throw you off, it could be hard when you get to assembly of the dragon. * Complex enough in number of parts and assembly to be a satisfying 2-3 evenings after work project. The downsides. * Not enough ramp slope, dice slide more than roll. * Exit holes too small for the provided ramp slope, sliding dice stick in the entrance rather than roll out. * Not enough internal panels to 'roll' the dice for truly random rolling (Ultime Dice Tower 1 is FAR better at this). * More a display piece than useful. What does this mean for users? If you roll more than 1 dice, and they both go down the same side, ...

Beasties
by Timothy B. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Night Owl Workshop
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:59:57
Beasties I have gone on the record, many, many times, talking about how much I love monster books. My first glimpse into D&D was way back in 1978-79 when I first saw and read the Monster Manual. Very few books have come close to that feeling of unlimited potential. So when a new monster book comes out, I have to take a look and usually grab it. Beasties from Night Owl Workshop has something of a pedigree in my mind. The art and text are from none other than +Thomas Denmark. He is responsible for some of my favorite art during the d20 boom, in particular Citizen Games "Way of the Witch". Beasties is an 84 page, digest sized, black and white interior book of new monsters. According to the sales text on DriveThru the book contains: 27 Monsters 6 NPC's 37 Drawings! 5 Maps 1 "Megadungeon" sample. It certainly punches above its weight class in terms of monsters and content. All the art is by Denmark himself, as is the text with additional text by Terry Olsen. The book is design...

Calidar, In Stranger Skies Fantastic illustrations and maps. great start on a new world in the vein of The Princess Ark series in old Dragon magazines. I really look forward to future publications. I also love the fact it is generally system agnostic.

100 Miscellaneous Instruments
by Dwayne S.
Publisher: Lee's Lists
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:40:44
100 Miscellaneous Instruments I was disappointed in the product. This is the first time I have purchased one of the "100 ..." documents and I was expecting a bit more. Just a list of names. I expected a sentance or two to accompany the name to at least give an idea of what the instrument is. Some are obvious just because of its ubiquity, but others I would have to look up to even get an idea if the instrument was wind, stringed, percussion, etc. If I need to look them up, then I don't need the list and can just google for musical instruments. It is what it advertised - a list of 100 instruments. But just names?!? For this reason, I will probably not purchase any further "100 ..." products....

Campaign Map 1 : The Northern Kingdom
by David H.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:38:01
Campaign Map 1 : The Northern Kingdom This is a stunningly beautiful map. Not only is it artistic and well-designed from a mapmaking standpoint, it makes sense geographically, unlike many fantasy maps. What I mean is, rivers flow the way they should, mountains look like real mountain ranges, forests look like forests do on on real maps, towns are placed sensibly (by river fords, etc). There are no silly pun-based place names. There is a clear Tolkien influence in the names. The creator gives you an unlabeled versions so you can use the map for your own campaign if you prefer....

V20 Lore of the Clans
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:37:42
V20 Lore of the Clans If you have been playing Vampire: The Masquerade for any time, you probably have a stack of clan 'splatbooks' giving you the low-down on the various clans of vampires (especially if you are an experimental role-player and don't stick to identical characters all the time). Here notes on all thirteen clans have been gathered together into a single sourcebook containing a wealth of vampire history, tradition and outright lies, all ready for you to delve into. Each chapter addresses the nature and traditions of a single clan from the standpoint of a vampire who is a member of that clan. How truthful are they? Well, about as truthful as any vampire is, and most of them make politicians look vaguely honest. Starting with the history of the clan, the chapter also contains information about how the clan operates tonight, and provides a range of new powers, merits, flaws, and other rules information which can be used to customise a typical clan member as you please. The approach is vaguel...

Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed
by Diogo N.
Publisher: Arion Games
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:32:44
Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Ed I began my journey through the RPG hobby with those little green books where you chose where to go next, which action to take and what would you say. The Fighting Fantasy books were a great introduction to fantasy gaming, and when I found out about Advanced Fighting Fantasy (Dungeoneer) I was thrilled! Now, almost 20 years have passed, and a second edtion of AFF has been released by Arion Games. But this is essentialy the same game. The same simplicity and elegance remain in the system, with some improvement I might say. There isn't a set in stone class system, so you can make your character anyway you want it. You even have the option to do "Point Buy" character creation or go full "Random Stats" as a traditional Old Schooler, which I love! The setting isn't fully described in this book (that's what the Titan book is all about) but you get the feeling of it and it's really great! It's a more mature, sober and darker fantaasy setting than the ones we usually get from the more wel...

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 2
by David H.
Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing
Date Added: 06/27/2016 09:27:45
Age of Shadow : Hex Map 2 Another excellent product from Crooked Staff. Like Hex Map 1, which this map borders, this one comes in both labeled and unlabeled versions so you customize it for your own campaign or use the unlabeled maps as player handouts. The cartography is, as usual, excellent, and you could believe this is a real map- which is rare in fantasy products. Locations from the Crooked Staff "Encounters in the Northlands" scenario book are on this map. Highly recommended!

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 1

Publisher: Crooked Staff Publishing

Age of Shadow : Hex Map 1 One of the best map products I've ever purchased. Worth much more than its very reasonable price. Very attractive and artistic, and also cartographically sensible. A nice touch is that it comes in an unlabeled version, so you can add your own names if you prefer and use it in a variety of settings.
