Hulks and Horrors - Basic Black Edition
by Jacob R.
Publisher: Bedroom Wall Press
Date Added: 08/04/2015 15:50:30
Hulks and Horrors - Basic Black Edition This is a fantastic RPG. If Stars Without Number is a mix of D&D and Traveller, and White Star is D&D and Star Wars, then Hulks & Horrors is D&D meets Doctor Who and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Easy to learn, even more customizable (IMHO) than Traveller, SWN and WS.

Five Year Mission
by Steven W.
Publisher: Ivanhoe Unbound
Date Added: 08/04/2015 13:21:22
Five Year Mission A fun and interesting impulse buy priced item, Five Year Mission adds elements of Star Trek, Farscape and Andromeda to Whitestar, with a number of new classes, ship types and alien races. There are some really fun ideas in here My favorite is the Expendable class, where the player gets to run a number of "Red Shirt" style crewmen and can expect to see them knocked off as the other players get into and barely survive dangers. My second favorite is the Living Starship class, letting the player roleplay the group's vehicle and homebase in the stars. A few ideas don't grab me. the Exiled Ruler in particular - based I am sure on the Farscape character - seems like too narrow a character as written, portraying that specific character rather than a more broadly defined archetype. Hey! For seventy cents this is a no brainer. If yo are playing Whitestar or any other OSR Sci-fi style game it is worthy adding to you tool box....

New Class Options
by Steven W.
Publisher: Genius Loci Games
Date Added: 08/04/2015 13:09:26
New Class Options I am giving this product a "Gentleman's 4" since I like many of the ideas and it is an impulse priced item. Several of the character classes here are interesting for certain types of games: the Pixie and Mermaid are fun, the Mythwood Elf is very interesting, the Chesh and Ruca are great for folks who like faeries and anthropomorphic animal games. However, some of the classes contain problematic or erroneous mechanics that I feel need to be corrected. For instance, the Bloodwitch has a 60% chance per day of losing herself in the Song of Magic, during which she doesn't know what is real or what is delusion. The details of such state are never spelled out, so the character may be minorly inconvenienced or majorly incapacitated, depending on the DM... and who wants to play a character that is unplayable every other day. Also, at each level the Bloodwitch learns 1d8 spells of the next highest level, so presumably a 2nd level Bloodwitch is learning 1d8 2nd level spells and a 3rd...

SciFi Assault Squad Set Nice set of figures and more than enough to field a good troop of hi-tech soldiers. The added vehicles are really good looking.

Special Supplement 3: Vehicle Upgrade Manual

Publisher: Mongoose
Date Added: 08/04/2015 07:42:53
Special Supplement 3: Vehicle Upgrade Manual What with Supplement 5-6: The Vehicle Design Handbook and Special Supplement 1: Biotech Vehicles you might have thought that vehicle design was a done deal... but no, here's some more! This book presents three new types of chassis (the ekranoplan, the rocket plane and the ornithopter) and a wealth of new rules for things like vehicle maintenance and design flaws, not to mention lots of other stuff. We start off with a section of New Chassis Types. There's a brief description of what an ekranoplan actually is - something like an aircraft but relying on ground effect (I think I need to do more research before I understand this!) - and then a whole bunch of variations and features on the theme for you to choose from. Rocket planes (which are capable of lifting off from a standing start rather than belting down a runway) and ornithopters (which flap like birds) are given similar treatment. Next is a section on Universal Modifications. These may be applied to any vehicle type when you...

Monster Menagerie: The Construct Companion

Monster Menagerie: The Construct Companion An Endzeitgeist.com review This massive tome clocks in at 123 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page ToC, 1.5 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial, 2 pages of SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page blank back cover, leaving us with 114.5 pages of content, so let's take a look! We begin this massive, huge book with an aptly-written piece of prose before diving straight into this massive book, which can be pictured as w2hat would happen if a book of the series formerly known as Mythic Menagerie (renamed due to the release of the mythic rules) took more steroids than an 80s locker-room full of pro-wrestlers. What do i mean by this? Well, this huge book is almost completely crunch - which means that, were I to go into my usual level of detail, this would be a review of epic proportions indeed. Instead of this, I opted for a more dynamic approach and filtered the analysis I undertook for your convenience. I will hence try to give you a fair sampling of what to expect within this book, ...

Savage Worlds Horror Companion Absolutely brilliant! Gave me a ton of ideas for my already-established action-horror game. Will be purchasing the Sci-fi and supers companions soon due to my great experience with this.

Lacuna Part I. (second attempt)
by Lori W.
Publisher: Memento Mori Theatricks
Date Added: 08/03/2015 17:27:02
Lacuna Part I. (second attempt) ...I downloaded the PDF from DriveThruRpg and started reading. And didn't stop until I finished the last page. (It's not a large book, but I don't tend to suck down RPG manuals in one sitting.) My powers of Google were activated and I read everything I could find. I even watched a three hour actual play (that didn't do the game justice). I was obsessed. It happens. Why the trip down the rabbit hole? This RPG provides a dark, surreal setting where the players are Mystery Agents diving into the collective unconscious to dispatch Hostile Personalities to the Lacuna. Criminals are then "cured" of their "criminal disease" in order to provide "a better, safer world." That right there is enough to provide a couple of fun gaming sessions. But the very long sub-title promises the creation of a mystery. And it definitely keeps its promise... ...Lacuna Part 1 (second attempt) provides a rich, intriguing, completely screwed up setting. It gives you an easy to grasp system with tension...

Fantasy Mercenaries Set HI A wonderful group of general purpose fantasy figures. Just what I need for city guards, NPC groups or for some of the player characters. Mainly human but there are other sets for other races. The usual good quality of art.

Heroic Maps: Monastery

Date Added: 08/03/2015 10:50:41
Heroic Maps: Monastery What can I say? I just love Heroic Maps! But here's what you need to know: (1) Heroic maps were intended for use in games that make use of modular dungeon terrain... think mapsheet with miniature furniture, scenery, and figures. Therefore the maps almost never include any decorations. (This is an awesome way to play, by the way, and you can get papercraft furniture and scenery fairly cheaply if you dont have any yet). (2) That being said, the lack of furniture means the designers could focus on the map itself, and that's exactly what they did. They are beautiful. These aren't some JPEG-with-a-grid maps (grids are optional by the way) that dont line up, leaving you guessing about whether your figures are balanced on the ledge of a roof or falling to a smashing death, or whether they are inside that room, outside in the hallway, or using their Pass Through Rock spell to become part of the wall. (3) Most, if not all, of the Heroic Maps are totally modular - meaning you can lin...
