Castles & Crusades Codex Classicum
by Edward C.
Publisher: Troll Lord Games
Date Added: 05/22/2018 22:46:25
Castles & Crusades Codex Classicum Not a particularly good RPG resource, unfortunately. First, it is 30 pages shorter than Celtarum. The author clearly had a great deal more interest in Celtic myth than Roman or Greek, and it shows in length, detail, and quality. It also wastes a fair few pages on a basic outline of the history of Rome and Greece. I buy a detailed setting resource to get details, not generic overviews I can find on Wikipedia. Celtarum focused on mythology, rather than history, making it a useful supplement for an RPG even if set elsewehere than the real world. The author's opinions on Caesar Augustus, on the other hand, aren't especially useful for a purely historical game, and utterly useless if I'd hoped to use the book to fluff up a corner of Airhde with a classical flair. Monster section is nice, but is full of typos and left out information. For example, the Cynocephaly "Special" trait is "See Below;" all there is below is a reference to their natural abilities being found in "the Hound/Wolf...

DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e)
by Samuel S.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/22/2018 22:26:38
DDAL05-07 Chelimber's Descent (5e) My players did not respond to some of the shrine puzzles, and my combat hungry AL table seemed to suffer their way through the traps. I admit, I was burned out from running both Season 7 Epics a few days before, but I had a fun time frustrating my players as they tried to brute force their way through the tower. Finally they got savvy, but it seemed like a slog for everyone concerned. My copy had a few errors in the text, but for the most part, this was a quick adventure, and a departure from the murderhobo-happy AL way. ...

Atlas of the Dragonlance World (1e) Karen Wynn Fonstad is an amazing cartographer, and her work shines in this atlas. It's a must-have for any fan of the Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends trilogies.

Chronomancy
by Lucas D.
Publisher: LootTheBoss
Date Added: 05/22/2018 19:20:33
Chronomancy Chronomancy is a topic that is not often touched upon but is something that intrigues most DMs, as we love to have a villain that really spins a party on their heads. What this book offers is just that for both the DM and the players alike. One thing I really enjoyed was that it gave a non magic oriented class an opportunity to mess around with Chronomancy. Having a rogue that could offer support by the means of time manipulation would be a great boon for a party or a nightmare if an assassin came by with the same capabilities. This book gives a great window into what you could do with adding Chronomancy to your game. That being said, you need to be careful when introducing time magic into your game. This is some powerful stuff and can really bend some rules that you are used to having. Having a party that can manipulate time and potentially see into the future can be a very powerful thing, but at the same time it adds such a great new flavor of the game that it's hard to pass ...

Tarot Adventures, Book One: The Draw of Glenfallow
by John B.
Publisher: Sinopa Publishing LLC
Date Added: 05/22/2018 17:06:39
Tarot Adventures, Book One: The Draw of Glenfallow **TL/DR**: A very well done, setting-agnostic very new-DM-friendly campaign starter adventure with some great artwork, compelling NPC characters, and plenty of room for the DM to expand during or afterward. A young mild-mannered commoner meets with a fortune teller and learns he is to become the new lord of a long lost Glenfallow Keep. He hires the adventurers to help him reclaim his birthright and rid the old fortress of the foul monsters within. Help him, and when young Pieron eventually becomes the Lord of Glenfallow, he will share with your party his good fortune. **PROS**: * Colorful NPC characters that have their own goals and motivations potentially at-odds with the party’s. * Small, detailed micro-setting that can easily nestle into a wilderness region of most D&D style fantasy settings. * Well balanced and designed encounters with plenty of advice for new DMs on running them. * Really nice artwork that evokes a unique flavor and mood to the adventure. * Plenty of ...

One Shot World (Beta)

One Shot World (Beta) From first looks, this seems to be a great RPG! I like how it is focused on One-Shots which breaks the usual RPG norm, and I am very exited to play! Any idea when the full version will be released? UPDATE: The publisher contacted me and said sometime in the next two months.

Family Background 2d6 SF SRD

Publisher: Universal Machine Publications

Family Background 2d6 SF SRD Three pages for 99 cents sounds like a lot, but there's a lot crammed into this product. This reminds me of the old "Heroes Of" books, except that it allows non-traditional families, which is a significant plus to me and one of the reasons I bought it. I'm really looking forward to using it, which is always a good sign!

Outdoor Tiles: Seasonal Trees
by Sarah R.
Publisher: Dungeon Channel
Date Added: 05/22/2018 09:26:10
Outdoor Tiles: Seasonal Trees The best thing about these tiles is that they go very well with a lot of tiles and maps out there, creating an immersive and visually appealing world. This is due to the difference variations that come with the set. The attention to detail and the realism it provides are remarkable, and added with the ease of use, make this set a great buy for the DM. Pretty neat stuff!

Ice (Fate) https://www.teilzeithelden.de/2018/05/23/ersteindruck-ice-a--
mythic-post-historic-rpg-stueckwerk-im-ewigen-eis/ Die Welt ist untergegangen. Der Klimawandel hat sich in einer Art und Weise verschlimmert, dass die menschliche Zivilisation untergegangen und die Welt in eine neue Eiszeit gefallen ist, in der sich nur kleine Reste einstiger Größe behaupten. Dafür ist aber zumindest Magie zurück in die Welt gekommen.  Mit Ice liegt ein Produkt vor, dessen Titel bereits verdeutlicht, in welcher kleinen Nische es sich zu Hause fühlt. Postapokalypse mit prähistorischem Anstrich in einer Eiszeit. Man muss dem Spiel zugutehalten, dass es sich damit einen ziemlich unverbrauchten Dreh ausgesucht hat, um sich von anderen Vertretern der Postapokalypse abzugrenzen. Aber lohnt es sich, einen Ausflug in diese Welt zu machen? Die Spielwelt Die Welt von Ice ist relativ schnell erklärt. Vor einigen Jahrhunderten begann eine neue Eiszeit, die die moderne Zivilisation ausgelöscht hat. Eis umschließt...

The Dragon's Den (Basic)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/22/2018 08:19:16
The Dragon's Den (Basic) *This is a review of the quality and coverage of the PDF product. It isn't a review of the content (i.e. the adventures and associated features).* **The scan is sloppy.** Usually in focus, but often the pages are skewed and there's a bit of bleed-through on pages that had pictures on the reverse of the original page (mainly cosmetic and doesn't affect the functionality) but in some cases the edge of the page is missed, leaving off text - and this happens on several pages, including some giving stats for dragons and PCs - so this product is missing stats on the most important characters. One map is skewed so badly one corner is missed and some of the other edges technically are lost too. The final page, of cut-out paper standee NPC/Monster figures, has the top and bottom row of figures cut off halfway. I haven't checked the colour multi-page maps for missing pages/edges, etc. Might or might not be OK. Given this is about 80 pages long, it can't have taken much more than 20-30 minu...

Dungeon Crawl Classics #5: Aerie of the Crow God
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Goodman Games
Date Added: 05/22/2018 07:57:44
Dungeon Crawl Classics #5: Aerie of the Crow God The party arrive in a coastal town to discover that the local lordling has got himself killed trying to deal with an infestation of harpies. His distraught widow is glad to hear that there are adventurers in town, because he rather unwisely took the key to his strongbox with him, and she urgently needs to get into it. The task seems straightforward, but of course there's a bit more to it than that. Pleny of notes are provided covering everything from scaling the adventure up or down, to wandering monsters and even why the grieving widow is so keen to have the key back. There's plenty of background material too, about the ruined cliff-top fortress where the harpies are based... and about what else is there that will present a greater challenge. There are also some adventure hooks to get the party to the right place if needed. The history is quite extensive, and it's left up to you how much you want the locals to know - and so relate to the party before they set off. The adventure ...

Runemastery

Publisher: LootTheBoss
Date Added: 05/22/2018 02:37:47
Runemastery Runemastery is a great buy! It's well organized, easy to read, complete, and it makes me want to try it. There are detailed descriptions of 20 different runes, each with three different functions. There is plenty of diversity because you get to choose which order to learn the runes in. You also can inscribe runes onto just about any surface, like weapons and armor, or even yourself. This document provides everything you need to make your character a master of runes in one of four different subclasses, each of which looked fun to play. It looks like it belongs in the class section of the PHB. If you want a new class to try out, this product won't let you down....

Classes of the Lost Spheres: Zodiac
by Kyle L.
Publisher: Lost Spheres Publishing
Date Added: 05/21/2018 23:48:47
Classes of the Lost Spheres: Zodiac This product includes a few feats that I feel should have been around sooner, like being able to increase the number of veils you can have shaped, allowing for non veilweavers to have a feat only option for veilweaving. a few reprinted feats and veils, BUT I am fine with this because that means that this product requires no other books to use. as a DM, this means less places I have to swap between. As a player, same verse as the last. We also get a few traits including one that can let you change the weapon type of a weapon-like veil (with a limitation of weapon category light to light, one handed to one handed, and such). But the true meat is the class: the Zodiac. It has a nice choice between playing a more fighter styled class by picking solar orbit or a more veilweaver styled class by picking lunar orbit. Beyond that, this class functions as a summoning class in a really great way: essence burn to summon a constelation either as a weapon, armor, equipment, or an animal companio...

DDEX2-02 Embers of Elmwood (5e)
by Paul C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 05/21/2018 22:31:08
DDEX2-02 Embers of Elmwood (5e) I ran this recently, and I must say, this Module deserves its excellent reputation. Rare among modules, it places a lot of emphasis on roleplaying, but still manages to provide a strong combat experience. I'd say the balance is as perfect as any I've played, or perhaps moreso. On the roleplaying side, Zora Culkin and Dawsom along with the visit to the Hospice provide for amazing interactions among the characters. At the end, they managed to save Zora, and the Dwarven Wizard accepted her sponsorship with the Cloaks! What a fantastic story award! In terms of combat, the Manor was a wonderful surprise for all of my party members. I provided a layout of the mansion and asked them where they settled in for the night. The assault scenario provides the perfect opportunity for DMs to tailor their encounters and provide a lot of dynamic challenges. It was incredible, and probably the most satisfying experience I've had as a DM. The players beat a hasty retreat, just before the mansion co...

Echoes From Fomalhaut #01: Beware the Beekeeper This is an excellent product. Two substantial dungeons, a smaller one with some very interesting treasure, and useful articles. A 'zine' in every sense, and perhaps the best one I've seen. I bought it on the weight of the tenfootpole.org review and was not disappointed. -Stan Rydzewski (not sure why it says 'customer name withheld')
