Mythic Minis 19: Feats of Sneaking

Mythic Minis 19: Feats of Sneaking An Endzeitgeist.com review This Mythic Mini clocks in at 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page content, so let's take a look, shall we? This time, we're all about feats associated with sneaking after the first, awesome installment, so let's check this out! We open this mythic mini relatively conservative, with a mythic blinding sneak attack that can be powered by mythic power to keep the blindness (upgraded to the end of your next turn per default) last up to mythic tier rounds. Solid. Now "Dampen Presence" is interesting, allowing you to avoid lfesense, tremorsense (but not blindsight/sense as written...) and also allows you to use mythic power to treat stealth as a natural 20 - but only before the roll. The latter feels a bit too generic - not sure if that is supposed to work only for the senses mentioned by the feat - I *assume* so, but as written, this can be done in any context. If you have the mythic version of "go unnoticed", you can be treated as in...

Scarlet Heroes http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2014/08/06/osr-spotlight-scarle-
t-heroes/ Lust mal wieder ein altes D&D-Modul zu spielen? Nur ein oder zwei Spieler zu Verfügung? Scarlet Heroes macht es ohne Umstände möglich, denn es nutzt klassische D&D-Werte mit neuen, simplen Regeln. Zusätzlich bietet es individualisierbare Charaktere, eine asiatisch angehauchte Settingwelt, einen Sandbox-Generator und ein Solo-Spielsystem. OSR-Spotlight: Scarlet Heroes Scarlet Heroes – da habe ich doch glatt den Kickstarter verpasst. Wahrscheinlich war es die wenig inspirierende Cover-Zeichnung, die mich davon abgehalten hat, die damaligen Posts über dieses Spiel zu lesen. Dabei hat es Scarlet Heroes durchaus in sich! In einem Band von 133 Seiten beinhaltet es ein Regelsystem für das Spiel mit nur einem oder zwei Spielern plus SL, ein Soloabenteuersystem, und eine Settingwelt mit asiatischem Flair. Die Spielwelt Die Settingwelt zu Scarlet Heroes gab es bereits zuvor: Sine Nomine Publishing hatte Red Tide u...

Divine Blood: RPG Supplement

Divine Blood: RPG Supplement Before you read this review, please note that I was involved with playtesting this product but I have at no point received any monetary compensation for my time or this review. My name is in the credits for playtesting and some small contribution to editing. I have also purchased this product for two reasons: to support the author and because it's a setting and rules expansion for the FATE system that, in my opinion, deserves support. I thoroughly enjoy the setting which also has a novel and several short stories and I have had a real blast playing games set in this marvellously detailed world. If I honestly didn't think this was worth everyone's time and money, I wouldn't be writing this review. The setting is anime-inspired cyberpunk meets mythology. There are Gods, Demons, Psychics and Mecha. There are nations in crisis, a grand political stage for you to explore and a fully fleshed-out magical system different to any that I've experienced in over twenty years of roleplay. The...

King for a Day
by James B.
Publisher: post world games
Date Added: 08/05/2014 16:18:51
King for a Day Since Jason has already written a comprehensive review on this product, and I do not disagree with what he has said, I will tackle a different aspect of the setting that I am very impressed with. Horror is an extremely difficult genre to master as most fantasy players tend not to be horrified by the idea of something that they can swing a sword at, or zap with a lightning bolt it takes planning and care to pull off a good suspense adventure. Monsters and the situations they are in become matters of mathmatics and overused tropes that are present in nearly all fantasy sword and sorcery games. Mr. Pinto has presented this adventure in such a way that it makes the job of approaching suspense much easier to accomplish, even for GMs who are not as familiar with this type of game. I have several other publications of Mr. Pinto and have come to expect quality material from him, but King for a Day is a jewel among the gold coins. I would also add, that this setting lends itself extremely w...

Lost City of the Dwarves Part 1:Discovery
by Christian B.
Publisher: Pen & Forge Productions
Date Added: 08/05/2014 15:46:00
Lost City of the Dwarves Part 1:Discovery Very extensive Adventure. A lot of Events, Enemies, Equipment, Riddles and all of that hold together with a nice story-line and several story-fixpoints. It is defenitely worth the money if you like the old fashioned "Choose your own adventure" books. The authors try their best in creating a strong adventure, that will keep you occupied for several hours. They fill it with lots of sneaking, fighting and well written story parts. However it felt at some points very repetitive (... go down that way, fight enemies, go to the next, fight enemies, ...) And this repetitiveness really made me skip some encounters and tore down my motivation to keep playing this adventure (hence it took me months to finish) The games system is a unique simplification of what could be considered classic DnD. This siplification makes the game very fast and easy to start. Only problem i faced later on was a classic DnD situation: You gain so many special materials, items and stuff, that it becomes increasing...

Birthright: Book of Priestcraft (2e)
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 08/05/2014 12:46:33
Birthright: Book of Priestcraft (2e) Never mind the Birthright setting, if you want to play a Priest character as more than a healing machine who casts spells (never mind that they're divine in origin rather than arcane) and can fight a bit, this is worth a look. If you are playing Birthright, all the better... let your Priest take a full part in the intrigue and manoeuvering that is part and parcel of this unique game. It starts with a thorough review of the different gods in the pantheon of Cerilia. Your chosen deity need never again be merely a name on your character sheet... you will know all about him or her, understand the organisation of that deity's church and know the festivals and rituals, and if you are playing a priest or a paladin you know what you need to do and what powers you get. So even if you are merely a devout individual rather than one of the 'professionally' religious, the bits about the deity and the church are worth reading! It's really all quite fascinating. There's enough here to fuel many...

Lords of Gossamer & Shadow Icon Deck
by Mark K.
Publisher: Rite Publishing
Date Added: 08/04/2014 22:40:32
Lords of Gossamer & Shadow Icon Deck If you have not yet realised, Lords of Gossamer and Shadow (LoGaS) is the dice-less role playing game from Rite Publishing that just keeps pumping out those supplements. It is also one of my favourite games of the past twelve months. It uses the Amber system but applies a much more fluid and interesting setting to it. The Icon Deck is a set of cards full of images of Lords and Ladies (and Dwimmerlaik) of the Grand Stair. The reason that we have the Icon Deck is that one of the powers in LoGaS that a player can use is called Wrighting and it involves the ability to contact a being through the use of an Icon. An image that represents the being through which this power allows for contact to them. Icons are sold on the Grand Stair to the most open beings (or in the black market for the most private) or a being with the power can create their own Icons by making an image that is representative of the being they wish to contact. So this deck of cards, 52 in total, each represent a...

The Monkeynomicon: Monsters of Karthun

Publisher: d20Monkey
Date Added: 08/04/2014 21:49:25
The Monkeynomicon: Monsters of Karthun A GOOD PRODUCT THAT MAY NOT BE FOR EVERYONE: There are three reasons for why one could be interested in the Monkeynomicon: -Interesting monster concepts and backgrounds. -More information about the setting of Karthun - presented in recent chapters of the D20Monkey webcomic, by the same author. -Illustrations. The PDF has the advantage of being inside the ''pay what you want'' model, allowing someone to decide how much the product is worth to them, but it's still a bit of a niche product. ---- THE MONSTERS THEMSELVES: 8 creatures are presented in the Monkeynomicon: -The Chain Lord: An almost unstoppable undead responsible for capturing characters who were resurrected and bringing them back to the underworld. -The Grin: A spirit of unknown origins that appears from uncovered mirrors to gruesomely kill the living. -Kundrok: A race of pseudo-giants who serve as slaves and arena-fighter. Also Happen to be light sensitive. -Maldros: A bear demigod/spirit of natur...

Imperium Chronicles - Fleets at War: Fighter Wing

Publisher: Imperium Group, LLC
Date Added: 08/04/2014 20:38:10
Imperium Chronicles - Fleets at War: Fighter Wing Fighter Wing a game that focuses on fighters and smaller vessels in more detail than Fleets At War. This is more a tactical game of maneuver than it is a huge fleet slug-fest. The game includes combat starships for the Imperium, the Magna Supermacy, and assorted pirate clans. A full set of various sizes of ship counters and missile tokens are included, with gorgeous artwork. Also included is a ruler guide for movement. Each ship has a stat card for keeping track of damage. Ten scenarious are included. To speed up play with a high number of ships, the number die rolls are reduced by using easy to use lookup charts of opposing attributes (i.e., damage vs. armor)....

TWILIGHT STREET BONUS SET - Drakes Radio & TV

Publisher: Microtactix
Date Added: 08/04/2014 19:42:35
TWILIGHT STREET BONUS SET - Drakes Radio & TV This was a nice little model to cut my teeth on - a simple box shape with a recessed roof. I had some difficulty in calculating the correct scale to print the cardstock for 28mm miniatures, but working on the aim of achieving a door height of 40mm or so, I eventually deduced that I needed to print at 150% of the original. I fixed each side and roof of the building to 5mm black foamboard, with rabbeted joints on the sides and with the recessed door simply glued to more foamboard and fixed behind the doorway cutout. The roof was glued onto supports 10mm from the top of the building. I now have a solid and sturdy building after a couple of hours' work and I'm very pleased with my results. I will be buying more Twilight Street buildings in the future....

Against the Dark Yogi: Mythic India Roleplaying [Originally posted here: http://daystarchronicles.blogspot.com.ar/2014/02/just-backed-
-4-against-dark-yogi.html] I haven’t read much about the setting yet (it’s not India, but a fantastic land based on ancient India called Bhurloka), but I've read most of the rules, so I’d like to talk a little bit about that. For starters, the game uses poker cards rather than dice. I wasn't very convinced about this aspect of the game until I saw the rules, then decided that there is no way the game could feel the same using dice. On a nutshell, you have 8 attributes (4 physical, 4 mental) and several skills. To resolve an action, the GM tells you the relevant target number. If the total of your Attribute + Skill + Card (you draw the first card of the deck) is equal to or greater than the TN, you succeed, otherwise you fail. Success usually allows you to bring conditions into the scene, which acts as a bonus or penalty on further rolls. For example, if you want to disguise as a Prince and you ...

Red Tide: Campaign Sourcebook and Sandbox Toolkit This one has an excelent reputation which is fully deserved. While being a sandbox campaign setting on the surface, it actually is a very useful model for the creation of campaign settings in general, which should be very useful for all GMs. Even if you're using an already existing setting, it's a great resource to not just create small locations, but to actually come up with groups of people to encounter, who are not just traveling on the road, but have their own motives and problems. Recommended without reservations....
