Advanced Arcana Volume II
par Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Editeur: Necromancers of the Northwest
Date Ajoutée: 07/24/2016 10:44:18
Advanced Arcana Volume II Following on from the first volume of Advanced Arcana, this one starts with a similar letter to a student who has now completed his first year at Aubergrave Academy of Magecraft. Likewise, the foreword to the book proper reveals that it was written by the same academically-minded mage, Kabaz Anvitz. This time, he says, he wants to concentrate on useful spells rather than those picked to challenge commonly-accepted principles of magical thought... but of course, he's ended up doing that as well. For a start, he explains - in a wonderful mix of in-character theory and game mechanics - just why a wizard 'prepares' spells in advance in terms of how spell energy is stored and used. At least, a rationale for the game mechanic! It's always been something that bugged me - ok, it's the game rule but why does it have to be like that? This book presents over an hundred new spells ranging from first to ninth level, and the underlying theme of many of them is the idea of spells which can have mo...

In Darkest Warrens

In Darkest Warrens My friends and I tried this out last night. It was my first time DMing and a few others' first venture into the Tabletop RPG scene. We had a blast and I think the simplicity of the system really helped us get more comfortable with this type of game! I highly recommend it if you're looking for a quick set-up, quirky little RPG that you can add a lot of your own character to. Trollish Delver Games- You deserve more than I paid for this. I promise to pay more for the next installment.

Stargate SG-1: Roleplaying Game **DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY !** I am 100% very unhappy. This is a terrible scanned copy of the paper book. There is artifacts on every page, the text is blurred and it is not OCR. This low quality is not what I expect from DriveThru RPG.

DDAL04-14 The Darklord (5e)

DDAL04-14 The Darklord (5e) I've been reading it for 2 minutes, and I've already run into a fundamental problem, making it very difficult to run this module. It's a mid-tier (level 5-10 module), yet on page 3 it claims, "This adventure is optimized for a party of five 3rd-level characters. WoTC should invest my $3.99 in quality control. At the very least, they should fix this issue and re-post the module promptly. With few ways for characters to get out of Barovia, lots of DMs are going to be running into this.

The House of Wish and Wonder

The House of Wish and Wonder This has a few good ideas but it is very, very loose so don't expect to be able to use anything in it without signficant work on your own part. But of course it is free so it is still worth a look if you want a kind of zany adventure seed for a GM adventure. The "Liability" class isn't really properly explained in a way that made sense to me so expect to have to do some work to use that idea too.

Affiliation Guide: United Human Front (for AMP: Year Two)

Editeur: Third Eye Games
Date Ajoutée: 07/23/2016 14:29:06
Affiliation Guide: United Human Front (for AMP: Year Two) This supplement puts the spotlight on one of the bad guys of AMP. It has some interesting highlights, but suffers under a few huge issues. It is one of the Strengths of AMP: Year One, that the issues it describes are so allegorical to real world social issues. Furthermore, the game treats all as equals, allowing players to create characters from across the political and legal specter. Nevertheless, the game is clearly slanted to the left, something which puts a supplement like this in an awkward position. The UHF are the game's version of right-wing groups, just replacing AMPs with Mexicans/Muslims/Colored/Gays/Whatever. The supplement lets you know more about the UHF if you wanted to play that, but I think few would. On the other hand, it can be used as a supplement for the PCs enemies, but since the supplement isn't written like that, it is less effective in this capacity. Still, it is a fairly interesting supplement, which shows the many faces of UHF. Its recruitment, tact...

The Anime Hack

The Anime Hack New to the Black Hack family of games, I bought this as my first choice. The Anime/Manga type of game is covered well in other books, but most often with a bewildering array of options and choices for both gms and other players. The Anime Hack avoids this trap rather nicely by boiling down the tropes and ideas just as the game engine is boiled down by the rule set the author used. D20 roll-under is not a new concept, but it is nice to see it handled effectively and clearly written as well. I particularly like the classes used for this game, and I am not disapointed that one of those posted on Facebook got me to buy the book. I even found myself dreaming up scenarios for the game that made me write them down before being able to sleep. To sum up my review: Buy it. Plan it. Play it....

Advanced Arcana How does magical education work in your game? There's quite a trend within Pathfinder RPG product to suggest that you can go to school to study magic, just as you or I in the real world can take classes in history or computer science... a reasonable assumption in a setting where magic is part of everyday life. This book takes this view, opening with a note penned to a newly-accepted student by a family friend, an older mage who wishes him well. This explains the purpose of the work, a collection of spells that should prove useful to any aspiring mage. Three specialist groups of spells are mentioned: 'quick' spells which are lesser-powered versions of spells that can be cast fast in an emergency, spells which refresh the mind and enable the re-casting of spells already used for the day, and 'segmented' spells that occupy several slots rather than one, but allow pretty amazing things to be done. Next are some delightful philosophical thoughts by the original author of the book, clearl...

Wonder & Wickedness This is right in my wheel house: simplifying spells (I can't memorize hundreds of spells) while simultaneously making them more flavorful and more versatile. I immediately ported them into my new OSR campaign. I love it.

Into the Necrobyss Fight Pit Freebie A beautiful piece of work. And it's completely free! Grab it! Note: While the tile size is a perfect inch (2.54 cm) in the digital file, the maps are provided as borderless pdf pages. Standard printers will add small whitespace around them, slightly reducing the final tile size.

Water Temple Dungeon Tiles Set Very beautiful. The amount of work invested into the original model must have been tremendous. Absolutely recommended, especially if you prefer a realistic look over the many cartoonish maps available. I recommend using a laser printer for best results. Note that the tile size is just a bit too small. I measured 2.3 cm per side - about 10% smaller than a standard inch (2.54 cm). Summary: 4/5, would buy again and will buy more from the artist
